Despite research debunking previous claims, razor found in Santa Fe candy

Last week, a number of publications reported on research about “Halloween sadism”, the deliberate poisoning or tampering of candy in order to harm children. The research claims that the phenomenon appears to be non-existent, with most outlets calling it an urban myth.

But an incident in Santa Fe may have just proven that the myth is not totally bunk. A razor blade was actually found in the Reese’s peanut butter cup of a 15-year-old trick-or-treater.

KRQE reports:

“There’s a high probability this is not the only tainted chocolate,” said Lt. Louis Carlos with the Santa Fe Police Department.

But police aren’t sure which house the teen got the tainted candy from. They are warning kids who trick or treated within two miles of Ragle Park to be extra vigilant and make sure to check their candy.

The police also told KRQE that they don’t believe the razor was a prank, but was deliberately placed in the candy by whoever gave it to the teenager.

University of Delaware sociologist Joel Best has said “Halloween sadism” is exceedingly rare and mostly an urban legend. Best investigated various reports of razor blades, poison or other hazardous material in Halloween candy resulting in the death of a trick-or-treater, and found no evidence that it has ever occurred. He also found that many reports of poisoned candy were actually pranks by the trick-or-treaters themselves.
