For centuries, crimes have been linked to witches and witchcraft. Many times, these crimes weren’t even real, yet innocent people were tortured and killed in rather gruesome ways because of people’s belief in witchcraft.
Although many witchcraft murders are nothing more than the product of hysteria and lack of knowledge, some truly horrible crimes have been committed with odd connections to witchcraft.
Some deaths on this list are linked to Wicca, but it’s important to understand that peace is a major tenet of the Wiccan religion. Also, karma is important to Wiccans, so murder is completely against their religion. But sadly, like other religions, there are some people who are misinformed or simply misuse the religion as a justification to commit horrible crimes.
