Sinopsis: Against a backdrop of superstition and mysticism as old as the hills of southern York County, a vagabond and two accomplices committed a murder that left in its wake issues for the community to be resolved that would be as intractable as the source of the demons that allegedly had caused the tragedy.
The story is fact.
It has all the essential ingredients of a fascinating tale of mysticism and the occult: a brutal, bloody murder done in the name of the ancient, primitive, and satanic power of witchcraft and superstition.
The story of the murder still echoes and re-echoes with intensity and interest as a remarkable episode in the county's past. It is compelling and fascinating - a blend of local customs, pow-wow, belief in the supernatural, and extreme violence. Its full impact cannot be understood apart from the trials, which provide the backdrop for an accurate analysis of the story. Without the trials, the story becomes the straightforward recitation of a gory, violent murder. The trials add a broad dimension of absorbing personalities, local color, and community response to a unique and overwhelming event.
