This Place In Oklahoma Has A Dark And Evil History That Will Never Be Forgotten

Tulsa’s Hex House (as it became known) has a dark and evil history that haunted Tulsa for years. A woman by the name of Carolann Smith lived in a duplex with two other woman that she kept as virtual slaves. The two women, Virginia Evans, 31, and Willetta Horner, 30, were “hexed” into giving every dime of their paychecks to Mrs. Smith. She convinced the women that their “big reward” would be in heaven. Smith not only lived off their paychecks, but she also milked Ms. Evans’ father for $17,000 for nursing care for his daughter. Mrs. Smith also collected life insurance policy’s on people who “conveniently” died that were close to her – including her father, late husband and housemaid.

The case broke when police were investigating a WWII ration book fraud. They found the two imprisoned women living in the basement in horrid conditions. They had been beaten, starved and treated inhumanely, while Smith was living a lavish lifestyle upstairs. The two women had been living under occult or hypnotic conditions for seven years.
