Only witness (who died of wounds received) claimed jaguars, strange dreams, "men who are not men, beasts who are not beasts" were responsible and would take him to some cruel game where the hunter would be the one hunted.

Supernatural Clues:
:arrow: Jaguar attacks, strange dreams, "beasts who are not beasts, men who are not men."
:arrow: The beasts who are not beast, men who are not men are the Nagual, powerful and fast were-jaguars.
:arrow: The Nagual appear to prefer capturing "warriors" and taking them to Xibalba instead of killing, though they have been known to kill when it serves their purpose or angered.
