week first podcast and thefirst one that we chose to do since wewell well we are history buffs butmostly meand i did all the research so i wasallowed to pickumwas hoodoo magic who knew magic being umwho do magic is brought over to sum itup it is an ancient system it's notreally a religion maybe consider magicdepending on who you ask it's spiritualbeliefs yeah it's practices it's it'spractical it's practical magic to fixthings in your life to bring things intoyour life that you want and to getthings out of your life that you want soyou are casting spells but you're usingumyou're using very practical items aroundthe house that would make sense to useso without getting too much into it youcan kind of watch the first video andsee what we're talking about but it'sit's pretty good and it really givesa firm description of the people thatwere using it back in the pre-colonialpre-solar um pre-revolutionary war allthe way up to the revolutionary war anda little bit past thatthis was real stuff for these peoplepeople that were brought over fromafrica to work as slavesit was a mixture of of that kind ofbelief systemuh native american belief systems andalso the traditional like baptist churchtype system so really really interestingstuff also a part of american historywhich we're huge fans ofsoin our show we did like our 60 minutevideo and then every week what we'regonna do or attempt to do is um onelarger 60 minute show to start withand then two shorter shows that kind ofbranch off of that so the last show wasuh we did a hoodoo tarot card poll orjulie did a who do tarot card poll sothere is actual who do tarotum that they used to practice or maybethey still do um so she did that becausethat's what she does for a living and inthis episode during um we did some moreresearch and we started to find somepretty interesting stories that wewanted to share with you guysum from some fairly recent events thatuh had directly or had direct hoodoolinks yeah it was pretty cool it wasreally coolso umas i was doing some google foo waitbefore we start happy mother's day ohthank you very much happy mother's dayto you guys happy mother's day moms sowe weren't supposed to be doing this onmother's day but this weekend got reallybusythis is just what's gonna happensoto begin with i was doing like i saidsome google fooon someuh who do magic type events and i cameacross an articleabout a reverend maxwell gunned down ata funeraland this came up because umapparently this was in alabama and thiswas shortly after uh the book to kill amockingbird was writtenumandthe author of that booka i've never read that book b i don'tremember what the author's name is i'mjust going to be honest oh my gosh thatis my absolute favorite book welland i don't read much and it's a greatbook souh so i never read it but they they dida lot like most the articles you findwere mostly about how this lady wentdown there she tried to write this bookshe couldn't get her act together shewrote a killer mockingbird and blah blahblah and it was like all right tell memore aboutthis reverend maxwell murder you knowthat sounds like an interesting story sowell you know you find fair amount aboutit so this reverend maxwell guy got shotat his daughter's step-daughter'sfuneral a guy shot him three times inthe face while he was giving her eulogywhich is crazy and it's not just any guyand we'll get into it but it's not justany random person soand i guess in defense of the to kill amockingbird lady that's a prettyinteresting story no wonder she couldn'twrite it i mean that'scrazy sowe cross-referenced it with a book thatjulie found on hoodoo hulunot hulutelling you guys it's been a weekendyeah so in the book called uh stories ofroot workers and hudu in the mid-souththere they tell the story about reverendmaxwell so it says here in the city ofthe town of alexander city alabamauh the story goes that reverend williemaxwell begins with the mysterious deathof his wife umdiscovered beaten and strangled in a caryeah so he was indicated before trialbegan the principal star witness in thecase married maxwell and then changedher testimony against himtwo years later maxwell's brother wasfound dead of excessive alcoholconsumption on a rural road aninvestigator with the local sheriff'sdepartment determined that the victimmay have been forced to drink fatalamount of alcohol two years later theminister's second wife was found dead ina car near their homethe cause was acute asthmatic bronchitiswhich has a similar effect ofsuffocationso he went to con uh court containinghis wife died of shock after theaccident and that she could receive herinsurance benefits and then three yearslater maxwell's nephew was found dead ina car these people all die in cars likeyou would think they would i mean walktake a bikeanything but a car stay away fromreverend maxwellyes don't let him take a life insurancepolicy out on you what's your last nameso the cause of death was determined tohave come from driving off the road sothe victim james has had several papersregarding insurance policies that havebeen taken out on his life by his motherhowever it was determined that thepapers had actually been filled out byrev willie max's handwritingsoit was rumored right here that reverendmaxwell was a good preacher but he wasalso known for dabbling in conjuremaxwell was allegedly seen hangingchickens in the trees around hisproperty and we talked about that likebottle trees and stuff like that yeahwell chicken bottle trees is actuallyused to capture the spirits they believetheir spirits or their ancestors arestill in the tree around them whenthey're doing that's more i think moreblood magic that's exactly what i wasthinking yeah it's more blood magicespecially when you're i mean you'reusingi mean a dead animal in a tree which isi would move if i saw our neighborsdoing that welli mean maybe if they're like hanging upa deer after they shot iti meanyou might want some deeri'm a city girl no i i meanonce you i mean it's like we talkedabout in the first video you know withlike the bathing ritual and all thatlike once you understand what you'relooking at then you can start todecipher you know it's like oh thatman's hanging chickens in the trees it'slike that guy is not just hangingchickens in a tree wiring up intosomething well exactly then why are youhanging chickens in the tree right it'snot a deer it's a chicken andespecially with all the history that'sbeen going on around himwhyit's very very very interesting of whatwas kind of going on so but again a bityou know kind of begs what we weretalking about before i mean blood magicand that's how it's done and once youunderstand what you're looking at thenyou know you know so you don't have toguess you don't even have to ask whyit's like you know what this guy's up toexactly so it says here that so rumor inthe african-american community was thatreverend maxwell had worked with thefamous seven sisters of algiers whichjust sounds crazy and creepy on its ownyep uh and had a secret room where heperformed spells in his home interviewswith people from the community revealedthat many people were scared of maxwelland go inside their homes when he droveto their neighborhoodsohe had quite a reputation for preachingfor the lord and also crossing with thespirits i like that term crossing withthis crossing with the spirits yeah sowell and no and really quick so rightabove it it actually says that hepainted his doorstep with the blood fromchickens so again more blood magic thathe's incorporating with itlisten i'm someone who will go and takeholy water and put it above the doorframes and around the houseyou know again just like brian wassaying is thatwhat's this guy's intention of what'sgoing on and why is he doing all thisandwith hoodoo you do work with magic andspells and practical stuff but you'realso working with your ancestors inspirityou connect with them you want to youknow be like hey i need your help andguidance here right but in this casehe's not calling in ancestors no he'scalling and i mean i would assume ifhe's using blood instead of anythingelse i mean he's probably trying to callin something else a little darkness yeahright so that's what i would that's whati would take from it yeah maxwell'sstepdaughter is very practical you knowexactly um maxwell's stepdaughtershirley ellington was also discovereddead the police reportvaguely described the death as unusualand related to maxwell it took place ona country road the body was discoveredunder a car where appeared she had beenchanging attirelocal opinion was that the child wasdead before she was placed under the caron june 20th reverend maxwell deliveredthe eulogy for his 16 year oldstep-daughter at a local funeral homeas maxwell exchanged glares with localswho feared and suspected him of theworst little shirley ann ellington'suncle made his way through the crowdplaced a pistol against the temple ofwillie maxwell the crowd of 300onlookers gasped as robert louis burnsannounced he killed shirley and now he'sgoing to pay for itand then he fired three bullets intomaxwell's facesoit doesn't say he shot him three timesdoesn't even say he shot three times inthe head he says he put three bullets inhis face into his face and there's 300people no and there's articles i wasreading was that he was saying thatfrom onlookers when the pistol was athimthey said that when he turned his faceat the hair of his mustache couldactually brush against the muzzle of thegun that's how close it wassoaccording to this it says maxwell legacylegacy has burned into the memory of thecommunity of alexander city evidence ofmaxwell's conjuring was discovered afterhis death
