No Charge for Psychic with False Tip
A psychic who sent authorities in Texas searching for bodies that didn't exist won't be charged. The unidentified woman sent the local sheriff's office, the FBI and the Texas Rangers on a whirlwind hunt for dozens of bodies she said were buried at a home about 70 miles northeast of Houston. The Liberty County Sheriff's office says she won't be charged because she did not act with malice or criminal intent. but investigators don't know how she had intimate details about the interior of the house. The tip prompted media to converge on the area on June 7 to incorrectly report that police were searching for dismembered bodies of children.
