American victim of serial killers Michael Bear Carson and Suzan Barnes Carson, dubbed by the press as "the San Francisco Witch Killers." Their murder spree began in Haight-Ashbury in March, 1981, when they attacked their roommate, 22-year-old Barnes, in their San Francisco apartment. They bashed her on the head with a frying pan and stabbed her 13 times before hiding her body in the basement, wrapped in a blanket. On 12 June 1984, the Carsons were convicted of Barnes' murder and sentenced to serve twenty-five years in prison.

Sy Scholfield quotes "Cry for War: The Story of Suzan and Michael Carson" by Richard D. Reynolds (Squibob, 1988), p. 6: "Karen ... Born a minute before midnight February 13, 1956, and raised on a farm in Jonesboro, Georgia, sixteen miles outside Atlanta." Reynolds seems to have the wrong year as the Social Security Death Index gives 13/2/1958.
