35 - SERIAL: Daughter of the 'San Francisco Witch Killer'
NEW SHOCKING DETAILS: Daughter of the 'San Francisco Witch Killer' Jenn Carson, speaks out about her father and stepmother's murder spree across California.
James Clifford Carson (aka Michael Bear Carson) and Susan Barnes Carson (aka Suzan Bear Carson) are convicted of three murders between 1981 and 1983 in Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area. The Carson's are referred to as the 'Witch Killers' after Suzan claimed to hear voices that instructed her to hunt and kill witches.
Michael's daughter Jenn Carson believes there are more victim's out there and is speaking out to help shed light on the case and help others.
In March 1981, 23-year-old Keryn Barnes, an aspiring actress was found dead inside her apartment. She was stabbed 13 times and her skull crushed before being wrapped in a blanket and thrown into the basement. The Carson's later confessed to the murder saying that they believed Keryn was a witch.
In May 1982, Michael shot and killed Clark Stephens, a co-worker at a pot farm in Humboldt County. The couple burned and buried his body and burned the grave site. They told police they believed that Stephens was a devil. His skull was later recovered by a dog and sparked the Murder Mountain legend.
In January 1983, 30-year-old Jon Charles Hellyer was stabbed by Suzan and shot and killed by Michael in broad daylight at a fruit stand in Sonoma County. Afterward Carson stole Hellyers truck and led police on a high speed chase.
