A couple are suing over psychic information that suggested a massacre took pace on their property.
In June 2011, a psychic contacted the police because they believed that a horrific series of killings had taken place at a ranch outside of Houston in Texas. The caller described a scene of immense carnage including the killing of adults and children alike. In response the police conducted an intense investigation of the property which involved bringing in the FBI, sniffer dogs and even helicopters. Before long however it became all too obvious that there was nothing there at all - the tip-off had been a hoax.
Now the couple who own the ranch are suing the Sheriff's office and various news agencies for acting with reckless disregard for their property and privacy as well as for publishing false information claiming that bodies had been found there.
