Image of Rose Veres, a Hungarian immigrant known as "The Witch of Del Ray," seated in chair. "...who was reputed to have caused the mysterious death of twelve men, in order to obtain their insurance, no charge could be proven against, "Aunt Rose" Veres, so long as Medina Street was populated almost entirely by superstitious peasants from Sarud, in Hungary ... after the death of the twelfth man, Steve Mak, on July 6, 1931, the "witch" was convicted of murder in the first degree, solely as a result of population changes on Median Street," from The Detroit Times, August 27, 1931.
