Stewartstown, Pa. (November, 1928) – Were John Blymire’s troubles the result of an evil curse? That’s what he thought when he and two other men murdered farmer and folk healer Nelson Rehmeyer. The crime made national headlines exposing the old traditions of Powwow, which some believe is witchcraft. Powwow practitioners today say there’s nothing sinister about it, but Rehmeyer’s death is still stirring up mysteries.
