However when dealing with the madness, it is hard to put the blame on a single soul because everybody was responsible in their own way. Overall, 141 people were arrested, 19 were hanged and 1 person was crushed to death. Researchers describe the Salem witch trials as a series of court trials that were aimed at people who had been accused of witchcraft. During this time, people were being executed without having evidence of the crime.
