If you were a cop and got a call about a mass murder of children and the person who called you is a psychic who gets her information from the angels, would you take it seriously?
The couple weren't really serial killers and didn't even have one dismembered child buried in their yard, let alone 25 to 30 of them, much to the surprise of the psychic who calls herself "Angel. Now they're suing the sheriff, the psychic and a bunch of news outlets who reported about them "after a self-proclaimed psychic told the sheriff that 25 to 30 dismembered bodies were buried in a mass grave at their home."
The sheriff's office provided the plaintiffs' address to the news media and repeated the false statement, and it made nationwide and worldwide headlines, according to the complaint.
Bankson and Charlton claim the sheriff's office searched their home unreasonably and without probable cause, inviting the media along to watch the intrusive execution of the search warrant.
The couple claim the sheriff's office was "unreasonable in relying on an uncorroborated tip from a self-proclaimed psychic source" who has proven to be "unreliable and untrustworthy."
“They up front asked me how I got the information, and I am a reverend. I am a prophet and I get my information from Jesus and the angels, and I told them that I had 32 angels with me and they were giving me the information and then it went from there,” Angel said.
What judge would sign a search warrant based upon information provided by a psychic?
The good news is that there was no mass grave, meaning that 25 to 30 children had not been murdered. If 25-30 children had disappeared you would have thought people would have noticed.
