Tameka Hargrave, 39, reportedly died in her car while having sex with her mechanic lover

A woman who died inside her Newark garage had reportedly been having sex in a running car with her mechanic lover when her body was found by her husband on Monday night.

Law enforcement sources told NBC the woman, 39-year-old Tameka Hargrave and a 56-year-old man believed to be her mechanic, had died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The sources said they believed Hargrave had been paying for the man’s services by having sex with him.

Her husband, Kahali Johnson, told ABC he found their bodies inside the garage, along with had been left running in a closed garage, and called police just before 9pm.

Johnson said he went to investigate after a strong gas odour entered his apartment before 9pm on Monday, and found the pair ‘laid out’.

He claimed when he found them, they were both outside the car, which had been left running.

‘As I tried to open the last garage door, I see the mechanic, he’s laid out,’ Johnson said.

‘She’s just a few feet away, she’s laid out. And pretty much I had to call 911, because at this time, with that level of emissions, I knew that they were gone.’

Mr Johnson said he went to investigate after he smelled a strong odour of gas in his apartment in Newark, New Jersey, and knew the pair had died of carbon monoxide poisoning

Hargrave’s mother told CBS her daughter had been going to get an oil filter from her mechanic about 5.30pm – when the pair last spoke.

Family friend Kelly Mitchell said she couldn’t get her head around Hargrave’s death.

‘We want to know why — what was she doing in the car? We don’t know,’ she said.

Hargrave, a mother to at least two girls, died because there were no carbon monoxide alarms in the garage, her family said.

One of her daughters, Khalisha Johnson, told CBS she didn’t understand why they hadn’t been installed considering other security precautions had been taken.

‘I just want my mother back. I want her to see me graduate high school. I can’t do that,’ she said.

Law enforcement did not confirm any other injuries as a result of the carbon monoxide, but residents of the apartment complex said they saw at least one person being taken away on a stretcher.

The male victim has not been identified, and police believe their deaths were accidental.

Exorcists in training as Vatican tackles rising cases of the ‘demon and possession’

The Vatican is holding a training course for exorcists from around the world to help the Roman Catholic Church cope with the growing numbers of people who claim to be possessed, Church officials say.

A conference held in April at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome will focus on anthropological, social, theological, liturgical, pastoral, and medical aspects of “exorcism and the prayer of liberation.”

It is aimed especially at providing support for bishops who train priests to become exorcists.

Cardinal Angelo Amato, the Vatican Prefect for the Congregation of the causes of saints, will open proceedings with a lecture on fighting Satan.

The number of Italians approaching exorcists has tripled recently to half a million people, according to Vatican News.

Father Cesare Truqui, a priest who learned to cast out demons from Italy’s most famous exorcist, Fr. Gabriele Amorth, told the Vatican Insider that “in the popular mind, the exorcist is a sort of good wizard who deals with the devil.”

He acknowledged that many who turn to exorcists in reality have “problems of the family, of losing work, even girls with problems of the heart” while others suffer from “spiritual deviation.”

“Even among Catholics there is a lot of superstition,” he said. “I have been asked for help by a girl who requested a long-distance exorcism of her ex-boyfriend who left her. In such cases one tries to give human understanding.”

True possession by demons is not common, he says, cautioning nevertheless that “the devil is always lying in ambush.”

“Nowhere is immune, not even the Vatican. Satan arrives wherever there are human beings.”

Brother Benigno Palilla, a Sicilian exorcist, also blames superstition for the surge.

“The number of people ready to make use of wizards, sorcerers, people reading cards and the tarot has increased,” he told Vatican News. “That leads to the demon and to possession.”

Last month Brother Palilla organized a grassroots training course for Sicilian exorcists who learned about Satanist sects and heard “stories of liberation” from the exorcised.

“A self-taught exorcist certainly will make mistakes. He needs a period of apprenticeship,” he said.

“The possessed are the existential backwater of which Pope Francis talks. They are people who suffer a lot and, unfortunately, are not inserted in the Church registry office,” Brother Palilla said.

Fr. Truqui says the course in Rome next month is timely because the struggle against the Devil has reached “a crucial stage of history.”

“Many Christians no longer believe in the existence of the malign one, few exorcists are appointed. There are no longer young priests willing to learn the doctrine and the practice of the liberation of souls.”

Critics warn that exorcisms can be a form of “spiritual abuse” and counsel extreme caution using them.

The Church of England says medical professionals must be consulted where appropriate.

Anne Richards, the Church of England’s national adviser on such issues told the Guardian: “Exorcism in a technical sense is incredibly rare. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a case that’s been authorised.”
