This “cold” English murder case caught my attention because of the involvement of Professor Margaret “Grandmother of Wicca” Murray, who apparently injected herself into it, somewhat after the fact, with tales of witches.
(Never mind that “wych elm” does not mean “witch elm.”)
Some British writers have attempted to cast the geographically close murder of Charles Walton as a “ritual sacrifice.”
But wait, maybe it’s not witches, maybe it was Nazis!
Read the whole thing. Fascinating stuff.
