Rico was an adherent of Vodoun.
Rico belonged to a Voodoo cult, one of whose leaders was a Mamaloi priestess.
In Batman (vol. 2) #298, the Mamaloi priestess had Rico dress up as Batman. She then sacrificed Rico as part of a Voodoo ritual intended to convince the other cult members of her power.
Rico was apparently a willing participating in the sacrifice ritual which ended his life.
