Voodoo Made Me Do It

VOODOO MADE ME DO IT: According to the New York Daily News, Leatrice Brewer (pictured) admitted she purposely drowned to death her three young children, Jewell, Michael, and Innocent (fathered, apparently, by two different males). Her attorneys had her plead “not responsible by reason of mental disease or defect” since she claims she killed the children to save them from a voodoo hex. The News states “she will be confined to a psychiatric facility instead of prison. Brewer, who had numerous contacts with social workers and police over several years, told authorities she killed the children inside their New Cassel home because she feared they were suffering potentially fatal effects of voodoo.” The system protects all children. Diversity is our strength.
