Read and listen to our Martinis & Murder podcast about the bizarre case of the couple dubbed the “San Francisco Witch Killers.” The couple killed multiple people but when they were arrested all they wanted to talk about was ESP, witches and their DIY religion. In a jailhouse interview, Michael and Suzan described themselves as “religious warriors involved in a holy war against witches.” When police tried to get an on-the-record confession from the Carsons, they said they would only do it with a press conference, and so a press conference was held. During the conference, the murderous couple ranted about everything from George Orwell’s 1984, President Reagan being the devil, and why witches needed to be killed. Michael said that Suzan had the power to identify witches through visions she got directly from Allah.
