Summary Rumors, witchcraft, and murder in this true crime account of one of New Jersey's most notorious cold cases-from two Weird N.J. magazine contributors. As Springfield residents decorated for Halloween in September 1972, the crime rate in the affluent New Jersey township was at its lowest in years. That mood was shattered when the body of sixteen-year-old Jeannette DePalma was discovered in the woods, allegedly surrounded by strange objects. Some feared witchcraft was to blame, while others believed a serial killer was on the loose. Rumors of a police coverup ran rampant, and the case went unsolved-along with the murders of several other young women. Including extensive interviews with DePalma's friends and family, new evidence, and theories about who could have committed this horrible crime, Death on the Devil's Teeth provides the definitive account of this shocking cold case more that remains a mystery more than four decades later.
