Hex murder victim’s granddaughter carries on powwow legacy

 

→ Mike Argento: Hex murder victim’s granddaughter carries on powwow legacy – The York Daily Record

Although the blame for Rehmeyer’s death ultimate rests on the souls of the three men who murdered him, I also think the Marietta Witch who convinced Blymire that he was in the thrall of Rehmeyer’s dark Hex magic should share some of the blame. Without her diagnosis of the problem the murder might never have happened.
