VOODOO MADE HER DO IT:

THE BIZARRE CASE OF GAIL TRAIT

Gail Trait & children

In July of 1978, Gail Trait savagely butchered her four children in her apartment on the east side of Buffalo, New York. Was she under the spell of a "bad voodoo curse" or was she just pure evil?

For an account of the Trait mass murder, see my article on CrimeFeed. See below for some of the original news coverage of the case from the Buffalo Courier-Express archives.
