Has a born again Baptist believer or a Jehovah’s Witnesses ever approached Catholic authorities for an official exorcism?

The Catholic Church has a long history of exorcisms, but has a professed Baptist or Jehovah’s Witnesses ever approached Catholic authorities for an official exorcism?

Catholic authorities permit the use of the Rite of Exorcism on non-Catholic Christians. Since it is seemingly believed that Baptists and Jehovah’s Witnesses has no documented cases of demonic possession, thus my question.

Is there a documented case of demonic possession being requested on behalf of a Baptist or Jehovah’s Witnesses denomination to the Catholic authorities? The Catholic Church does permit non-Catholics to request by a Catholic priest to perform this ritual on other Christian denominations with certain requirements put forth.

Thus my question is as follows: Has a born again Baptist believer or a Jehovah’s Witnesses ever approached Catholic authorities for an official exorcism?

    Just to be clear it is not professed Baptists (or professed anything) who are safe from demonic possession but actually born again believers whom Baptists say are safe. – Mike Borden Jun 15 at 11:53

    Given the fact that a JW severs all ties to any other religion before being baptized it would be viewed as a serious sin to seek out spiritual assistance from another denomination in this way. – Kris Jun 18 at 19:43
