Syracuse Herald, Syracuse NY – April 19, 1925

Camden, N.J., April 18.— The charge of suspicion of murder under which H.H. Hyghcock, alleged “Voodoo doctor” was held by the police for more than a week was dropped today and he was held in $2500 bail on charges of obtaining money under false pretenses and illegally practicing medicine.

Police said that Hyghcock’s daughter, 7, had told them her father shot and killed a woman and buried her in the cellar of their home. Investigation failed to substantiate her story.
