The serial killer who believed his name was a hex.
The bizarre case of Jake Bird.
Jake Bird was executed for killing a mother and her daughter in 1947. He admitted to killing 44 people just before his death, and has been linked to at least 11 more murders since his passing.
What made Bird an unusual serial killer is that he believed he could hex people with his name. He placed the “Jake Bird” hex on all those who tried to punish him and surprisingly, several people connected to his trial unexpectedly died.
