This true story of murder in a small town became one of the strangest criminal cases in Michigan history. The disappearance of a 17-year-old girl after she ended a stormy relationship with her boyfriend went unsolved for nearly eight years. The paranormal dimensions of the story — tales of witchcraft, black magic and the remarkably accurate predictions of psychics — read like something out of a Stephen King novel. The prime suspect, a handsome Mexican-American who was 19 at the time of his former girlfriend's disappearance, taunted police for years, seemingly confident that he would never be called to account. At trial, he was represented by a Roman Catholic priest. After the trial, several people with ties to the case were struck by tragedy that a mysterious medium blamed on black magic being practiced by the killer's grandmother.
