Not Correct
30 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The above comment is incorrect in 2 regards: 1)It wasn't odd for a Homicide story to be based on a real story,in fact the show was created from the book by David Simon about the year he spent with the Baltimore City Homicide Unit. The first couple of seasons came from the book. As an example the storyline about the woman killing off the family members for the insurance and they wouldn't report her because they thought she had voodoo powers,that is right out of the book and true. I added this to get my 10 lines but if you haven't and you like the show,read the book.

2)The story this episode was based on is NOT true, it was made up by Don Harper Mills for a meeting of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences to illustrate a point. Here is the link to snopes.com http://www.snopes.com/horrors/freakish/opus.asp
