1940 New Orleans Voodooist Salvadore Laurie is shot and killed by his brother in law. When police catch up to the suspect, he freely admits to the crime, citing revenge for a Voodoo curse place on him by Laurie as the reason. The brother in law recieved life in prison.
1943 New Forrest, England Wiccan and Neoapagn Gerald Gardner, fearful that another Neoapagan, Adloph Hitler, might win World War II, begins to sacrifice members of his own coven. The oldest member is chosen to be sacrificed, using a poison . The poison was said to be "Fly Agaric", commonly known as "Spanish Fly", which although used as an aphrodisiac, can be leathal in large doses.
Two other members also alegedldy died from "exposure". Supposedly the sacrifices continued until it began to take a serious toll on the coven numbers, and Gardner, the creator of Wicca, claims he recieved a message from the gods themselves not to sacrifice any more members. Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet Again (unless you're sacrificed?). The story came out a couple of years after Gardner's death by two independent sources, and the surviving members of Gardner's coven never denied the story. Gardner told writer Francis King that the sacrifices were done in such as was as "to avoid legal unpleasantness". Wiccans who acknolwedge the story dismiss it as neccesary to win WWII. One might think all the thousands of Allied soliders and two atomic bombs had something to do with it, rather than some Brits murdered out of ridiculous superstition! And didn't the prayers of millions of Christians count for anything???
1945 Quinton, England Charles Walton was found murdered in a ritualistic way, involving witchcraft. When his body was found on 2-14-45, villagers were shocked at the scene of the brutal and ritualistic murder. Charles' trouncing hook was embedded in his throat, his body was pinned to the ground by his pitch fork, and a large cross was carved into his chest. Previous cases documented include people murdering those they believe have put them under a spell. In these cases, the victim - believed to be the witch or warlock that cast the spell - was often given the sign of the cross by the person taking their revenge. Police think that someone thinking they had been hexed by Walton murdered him to "break the spell".
1953 Chile 27 y.o. Juana Catrilaf, a Pagan, belonged to the Mapuche Indian tribe. South American Indian mythology is ripe with tales of blood sucking demons and witches, and a history of bloody human sacrifices. Catrilaf is charged with the murder of her grandmother whom she said was a "machi" - a sorceress. Catrilaf blamed her grandmother for the death of her infant son, and for the epilepsy that troubled her for several years. Using the shamanistic remedies for the situation, she clubbed the old woman, slashed her forehead, and sucked some of her blood. Catrilaf claimed she felt a "firey demon leave her body". Her indian tribe was pleased with the results. Catrilaf was acquitted for the human sacrifice due to a law in Chile that recognizes justifiable homocide due to "irresistable psychic forces". Imagine if the U.S.A. had that law today!
1955 Cordelle, Georgia Anjette Lyles became rich after marrying and then murdering her husbands and collecting the hefty life insurance policies. She also bumped off family members too, including her 9 year old daughter. Eventually the trail of corpses caught up to this Hoodoo root worker gal. The newspapers dubbed her "Gay Widow Killer". During her trial, she freely admiited to the murders and also revealed her involvement in Voodoo. Police found dozens of "brand name" Voodoo candles like "Van Van" and "Jinx Removing" in her house. She also always carried roots with her, and saw a fortuneteller everyday. Apparently money spells weren't her forte', which is why she resorted to murder to make a living. She collected a total of $47,700 in life insurance payouts over a period of about 4 years in addition to the $190 a month widows pension the VA gave her. Not a small amount of money for 1955. But she blew the money on boyfriends, a Cadillac...and books and items on the occult (sound like someone you know?). Her magic landed got her the death penality. She was later placed in the Midgeville, GA asylum where she spent the rest of her life.
1957 Naples, Italy Marianna Castellano was a "strega"...a witch, not the kind you read about in Leland's Gospel of Aradia or books by Raymond Grimassi which are modern inventions, but a genuine strega. Castellano was hired by a client in 1937 to cast a spell on some of her relatives. For the service Castellano charged the client $1 a month for the rest of her life. But after the fall of Mussolini and WWII, a buck a month just ain't what it used to be. Castellano demands more money. By 1957 the client decided she had paid enough and told the "strega" there would be no more payments. Castellano the went to the deadbeat client's home with a pan of burning gasoline to burn her alive...a case of reverse witch burning! A struggle ensued, and Castellano wound up being burned to death instead, however. The former client was acquitted on grounds of self defense.
1957 Vineland, New Jersey Puerto Rican farmhand, Juan Rivera Aponte, was arrested and convicted for the murder of 13 year old Roger Carletto. Aponte, raised on an island where Santeria and it's cousins abound just like on Cuba, became smitten with his boss' 15 year old daughter. Aponte set out to make the girl his love slave via sorcery. He found a love spell in an old grimorie that called for the powdered skull of an innocent boy. Aponte murdered Carletto for this purpose. Not only did it not work, but he got a life sentence for murder. He died in prison several years later. I recieved an email from the niece of Carletto who said the parents never completely recovered from their son's death.
