That awkward moment when….two serial killers are using the same dumping ground!  It doesn’t happen often, but it has happened!
I was here first.

At the time of Kemper’s murder spree in Santa Cruz, another serial killer, Herbert Mullin was also active, earning the small California town the title of “Murder Capital Of The World.” Kemper and Mullin were briefly held in adjoining cells, with the former angrily accusing the latter of stealing his body-dumping sites.

Over in Florida were another two serial killers operating at the same time and even same place.  Gerald Stano (now executed) started killing women because “he didn’t like their attitudes”. 
For six years, police had believed that 17 year old Cathy Sharf was a victim of Bernard Giles.  While Giles confessed to having killed five women, he denied he was guilty of murdering Sharf, even though her body was found right where his five victims were found.  The one clue that led to Stano being charged with the murder instead of Giles is that palm fronds were covering her body, one of Stano’s trademarks.  In 1981, Sharf’s death was attributed to Stano, making her his seventh victim. 
*I don’t know who did the Kemper image, but it was someone on Tumblr, if you know who, let me know so I can credit them :]

Cyclopia is a rare birth defect in which the body is unable to properly separate the two eye sockets so they remain merged as one. The majority of babies suffering this disease are stillborn but if they survive it is not usually for more than a few hours.

As a symbol of high social standing, high members of the Chinese aristocracy would often grow their fingernails to an excessive length. This was perhaps a sign that they need not have functional use of their hands for work.

A father and pregnant stepmother have been arrested after they allegedly kept their five-year-old son locked under the stairs. 

Police discovered a locked closet with a mattress after being called to a home following a disturbance last Thursday between Bradley Bleimeyer, 24, and his 16-year-old stepson. The teenager had allegedly objected to his younger stepbrother being kept under the stairs at the home in Spring, Harris County, Texas.

The child was taken to hospital where he was treated for a large cut on his back, bumps and bruises and severe malnourishment. He remains at Texas Children’s Hospital where Child Protective Services have applied for emergency custody.

Elizabeth Prophet was a religious leader and founder of the Church Universal and Triumphant, that is a syncretistic belief system, including elements of Buddhism, Christianity, esoteric mysticism, the paranormal and alchemy, with a belief in angels and elementals (or spirits of nature). It centers on communications received from Ascended Masters through the Holy Spirit. 

The Violet Flame was one of the chakras used in their reunions, it says that this flame is the seventh-ray aspect of the Holy Spirit; it emerges from the white-fire core as the omnipotent love of the blue that combines with the omnipresent power of the pink, refracted in the prism of the Christ consciousness, accomplishing the perfect work of the truth that makes every man free.

I AM the Violet Flame
In action in me now
I AM the Violet Flame
To Light alone I bow
I AM the Violet Flame
In mighty Cosmic Power
I AM the Light of God
Shining every hour
I AM the Violet Flame
Blazing like a sun
I AM God’s sacred power
Freeing every one.

The curious case of: Clairvius Narcisse, The zombie.

In 1962, Clairvius Narcisse went to the hospital to get a checkup after feeling extremely sick. Doctors diagnosed him with disorders including hypo-tension and pulmonary edema. Clavirvius later said that he had a high fever and was feeling like something was crawling over his skin just like bugs. Sometime later he was declared dead by the two physicians of the hospital and his sister signed his death certificate.

Clavirvius was buried, though he later said that he could hear everything from closing of the casket to his sister weeping besides him.  A voodoo priest came to his grave, took him out of the coffin, beat him up and took him away.

He was taken to work on a sugar plantation, where he saw people just like him working and laboring. He was also given some kind of concoction everyday so that he never regained his memory. After 2 (two) years the owner of the plantation died and Clavivius walked away to his freedom but he learned that his brother was the one who had gotten him poisoned over a property dispute. Fearing his brother, he avoided his village and returned only after knowing his brother has died.

Lamarque Douyon, a Haitian psychiatrist confirmed that Clairivius is the same Clairivius that had been buried. He also got many friends and relatives that claimed his identity.

The Canadian Ethno-botanist, Wade Davis, explained that Clavivius was injected with a toxin made from toad, some poisonous plants and Sapo fish ( a poisonous fish found in Haiti) which has a hallucinogenic effect and can cause memory loss. And by frequently drugging him he had lost his memory but once the drugs stopped he started regaining his memory. (x)
