Canadian was killed in Peru, Global Affairs says

On Friday, an angry mob surrounded 41-year-old Sebastian Woodroffe, a Canadian man they blamed for Arévalo Lomas's death, before dragging him away and lynching him.

"Canada extends its deepest condolences following the reported assassination of‎ Olivia Arevalo Lomas, an Indigenous elder and human rights defender of the Shipibo-Conibo people in Peru's Ucayali region".

Officials also have endorsed off from reviews that Woodroffe was that the suspect in Arevalo's killing.

Arevalo and Woodroffe were both killed Thursday in the indigenous community of Victoria Gracia, officials said. A video circulating online is believe to show Woodroffe being lynched by villagers.

A video posted on social media shows a man sitting in a puddle and crying out for mercy as a group of men tie a rope around his neck and drag him across muddy ground.

That same day, Woodroffe was killed by villagers from the Ucayali region of the Amazon rain forest.

The bitter brown brew is made up of a precise mixture of native plants, which contain a high dose of dimethyltryptamine (DMT, ) a psychoactive compound that can lead to hallucinogenic experiences.

'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.

"This man has never had a gun or talked about anything along that line", he said.

The hallucinogenic cocktail, also known as yage, has been venerated for centuries by indigenous tribes in Brazil, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia as a cure for all sorts of ailments. He became more distant after trying ayahuasca.

The federal government said it is providing consular assistance to the family of the Canadian. It is true some of the plants I will be learning about do have a perception-altering effect, but these are a few plants out of thousands I will be working with.

"I am in this for the long haul". In short, the people did not want to wait for police to take action against Arévalo's murderer, and instead chose to kill the man they believed was guilty. I want to turn them on to the wonders of existence, and have them leave as a renewed friend and lover of this thing we call life, ' he added.

It's unclear if Woodroffe took the drug soon before Arevalo's killing, but he expressed interest in it and had taken it in the past, according to Yarrow Willard, a friend of Woodroffe's who spoke to the CBC.

Several indigenous activists have faced deaths threats and have been murdered because of their work at keeping illegal loggers and oil palm growers off their lands.
