Murder and Mayhem in York County by Joseph David Cress

The unsolved 1878 murder of a young woman walking home from Hanover and a lethal 1909 love triangle in Chanceford Township that led to murder by strychnine are but two incidents in York County's history of deadly deeds and misdoings. While the 1969 York Race Riots are the most infamous instance of mayhem in the county, the strangest is perhaps the Hex Murder that left a North Hopewell Township powwow doctor?a practitioner of the local folk magic?dead at the hands of those trying to lift a curse. Follow author Joseph David Cress on the lonely country roads and harsh city streets as be goes on the trail of the body snatchers, hooligans and black widows of York County, Pennsylvania.
