In this essay, High Priestess Peggy Nadramia presents information about the life and unjust murder in 1982 of Dr. Charles Lee Scudder and his companion Joe Odom as recounted in accurate detail in Daniel Ellis’ new book Corpsewood: A True Crime Like No Other.
To quote from the piece:
“Charles Scudder and Joey Odom were different. They were outsiders. Their murderers, and many of those who weighed in afterward, vilified the victims as “devils” deserving of their fate. These lifelong losers whose low-rung in life had definitely been their own doing were nevertheless confident they were somehow “better” than “two weirdos from the big city” who had only come to Georgia for peace and the appeal of its natural beauty.
“This is a cautionary tale for every Satanist. Walk among them, but never forget you are not of them.”
—Magistra Peggy Nadramia, High Priestess, Church of Satan
