Are they any historical works that detail the accusations and testimony of those who tried the witches in the Salem Witch Trials?
I bet that most of those historical documents have been purposely destroyed. I also believe that if you are successful you will find statements like, "She made me hear voices in my head." And, "I had no working memory or knowledge of any of my former skills." And, "I never felt the same after I ate the meal she prepared just for me."
It would be very interesting to see if the testimony of those trying the witches corresponds to what people say today when they have their first visit with a psychiatrist for a stolen soul. Anyhow research it from that perspective and you are on your way to winning a Pulitzer Prize.
