145. Voodoo Queen Josephine Gray

Considered one of very few female African-American serial killers, Josephine Virginia Gray's husbands and boyfriends had a nasty habit of being murdered after making her the beneficiary of their life insurance policies.


Those around her believed Josephine's claims that she was a voodoo queen and practitioner of black magic. Intimidated by her powers, they refused to testify against her, lest she put a curse on them causing them to wind up dead too.

Aussie As: A Brisbane man had himself a bit of a mischief when he laughed so hard at a joke he heard on breakfast radio that he crashed his car and knocked himself unconscious.
