This short story by Theodore Roscoe originally appeared in the American Weekly, in 1942. At the time the pulps were dying, Roscoe was looking for other markets, and he was doing a series of articles on real crimes for the American Weekly. Looks like he also managed to sell them this story.
This story of Haiti and voodoo could have been a Thibaud Corday story – it has a similar structure. There’s some wartime flavor to this, too.
