THE VOODOO PRIESTESS AND THE MAN FROM THE TRAIN” #WeirdDarkness

Listen to ““THE VOODOO PRIESTESS AND THE MAN FROM THE TRAIN” #WeirdDarkness” on Spreaker.

A series of ax murders took place in Louisiana and Texas. Gruesome as they were, they began to horrify the public even more when they were admitted to by a teenaged voodoo priestess. Despite her confession though, a pair of authors say that there was someone else in the area at the time even more dangerous and who likely did most of the killing unbeknownst to even the voodoo priestess. That man is know simply as “The Man From The Train”. Plus, we’ll look a few more gruesome ax murders that took place in the 1800s.
