A Canadian man has been killed by a Peruvian mob, who accused him of murdering a respected elderly shaman.

Sebastian Woodroffe, 41, traveled to Peru to study natural medicine and to seek enlightenment. He was studying hallucinogenic medicine in the Amazon rainforest before he was killed by a mob for allegedly shooting dead the indigenous healer Olivia Arevalo Lomas, 81, dead.

Arevalo was a beloved shaman who ran a lucrative healing center that offered ayahuasca - an Indigenous hallucinogenic mixture - to Westerners, according to CBC. Woodroffe is believed to be one of her patients.

Arevalo was killed on Thursday by two fatal shots and Peruvian authorities describe Woodroffe as her killer. On the same day Arevalo was killed, Woodroffe was lynched by people of the Ucayali region of the Amazon rainforest who blame him for the healer’s death.

Peruvian police said the Canadian man was brutally dragged by the neck through the rain forest. A rope was tied around his neck and he was dragged around. A cellphone video released by local press shows a man covered in blood believed to be Woodroffe begging for mercy as he was dragged by a rope around his neck between thatch-roofed homes. He is last seen in the video motionless on the muddy ground.

On Saturday officials dug up Woodroffe’s body from an unmarked grave in the forest 0.6miles away from Arevalo’s home.

"The body had been fully identified (as that of Sebastian Woodroffe) using fingerprints," General Jorge Lam, the lead police officer in the double murder inquiry, said to The Guardian.

Ricardo Palma Jimenez, the head of the group of prosecutors in Ucayali, said that no arrests have been made in relation to Woodroffe’s death.

"We will not rest until both murders, of the Indigenous woman as well as the Canadian man, are solved," he said in a phone interview to Reuters.
