The Hex Murders

Jim McClure discusses the infamous Hex Murders

In 1928, three men murdered a farmer named Nelson Rehmeyer late one night in a remote southeastern York County valley, Rehmeyer’s Hallow.

 

The reason? The assailants believed Nelson Rehmeyer cast a spell on them and their families.

The shocking murder and subsequent trial jolted York County and its fears of powwow, witchcraft, and the occult.

The murder and trial continue to be discussed 80 years later. York Daily Record’s Jim McClure will discuss the murder, the trial and why we are still fascinated by the case today.
