CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Police said Wednesday they believe the dying pleas of a neglected, elderly woman were echoed by her parrot as they combed through her fetid home.

Police Lt. Eric Bonnette said the bird mimicked the plaintive words of 98-year-old Anne Copeland, haunting authorities as they searched the house, which reeked of rotting flesh and animal feces.

"Once we pulled the blanket from over him he would keep saying, 'Help. Help.' And then he would laugh," Bonnette said. They believe the laughter was an imitation of Copeland's adult daughter, who was charged with abuse and neglect resulting in death of a vulnerable adult.

Hidden within a camouflage tent behind Jared Lee Loughner's home sits an alarming altar with a skull sitting atop a pot filled with shriveled oranges.

A row of ceremonial candles and a bag of potting soil lay nearby, photos reveal. Experts on Sunday said the elements are featured in the ceremonies of a number of occult groups.

MESA, Ariz. -- Psychic Mary Ann Morgan used to see clients in private homes or hotel conference rooms. "Never again after that guy," she told CBS 5 News in an exclusive interview. In August 2005, Morgan was holding appointments at a Chandler hotel. She said her last client for the day was a young man named Jared Loughner. She didn't know he was just 16 at the time.

 

"He creeped me out," she said. Morgan told CBS 5 News that Loughner asked her about the voices in his head. "He said to me, 'Nobody likes my ideas about things. I hear voices and I knew you would be able to relate and not make fun of me.'"

 

Morgan claims to have the ability to speak with spirits of the deceased. "I told him what I do is different. I hear voices that are kind and loving. They pass along loving messages to their families who are still alive." Loughner, she said, was hearing voices telling him to take action. "I asked him, 'Did you tell the health-care people that?' He said, 'No, they would put me in an institution.'"

TAMPA — Julie Schenecker was sick of her teenage children talking back to her, police say, so last week she bought a .38-caliber pistol and planned their murders and her suicide. She shot her 13-year-old son Thursday evening after driving him home from soccer practice. Then she walked upstairs and shot her 16-year-old daughter in the back of the head as she did homework, an arrest affidavit states.

 

With their blood on her clothing, the 50-year-old mother remained at the Tampa Palms house all night. Police didn't arrive until the next morning, after Schenecker's mother called them from Texas, worried because she couldn't reach her daughter, whom she believed was depressed.

 

Schenecker admitted killing her children, Calyx Schenecker, 16, and Powers Beau Schenecker, 13, police said. She showed no remorse.

The Internet crescendo peaked in the wake of a Jan. 27th medical emergency at HLI's Front Royal, Virginia headquarters described by emergency medical responders as a "medical seizure" and by some witnesses as a "demonic possession" of a past female associate of Father Euteneuer's. Five days later, as the Catholic blogosphere exploded with theories and accusations against the priest, attacks on both the priest's critics and alleged victims, Euteneuer broke the five months of official silence with an admission of one instance of moral failing during his performance of an exorcism.

A homeowner had complained that a naked man was on his porch and "growling like a dog." By the time officers showed up, the man had walked -- on two legs, we assume -- to the front yard. The naked man, whom police said was clearly high, screamed that he was the devil and that "everyone was going to die."

Timesleader.com – A couple hallucinating from bath salts nearly cut their 5-year-old daughter with the knives they were using to stab “the 90 people living in the walls” of their apartment, police said. Robert Hospodar, 29, and Amber Sutton, 26, of Luzerne Avenue, were charged with disorderly conduct and endangering the welfare of children. Sutton also was charged with criminal mischief. West Pittston Patrolman Leonard Lombardo said he responded to the couple’s apartment at 3:19 a.m. Saturday “for a report of 90 people living in the walls.” He met Hospodar and Sutton and their daughter and said the adults were holding knives and other knives were on the floor. Hospodar and Sutton “exhibited extremely paranoid behavior,” said Lombardo in the affidavit of probable cause to support the charges filed against them. Each said the other was on bath salts, according to the affidavit. “They were pulling drywall off the walls and sticking their heads in the walls describing the people in which they claimed they saw. They were plunging knives in to the holes in the walls attempting to stab the people,” according to the affidavit.

Rasheen (Illuminati) Harrison, 24, is accused of smearing his feces on the door of his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and then setting the door on fire.

The woman, who is six months pregnant with Harrison’s child, was home at the time, along with her two children and two other people. None of them were hurt.

Police say Harrison’s fecal fury began in the girl’s building at 5:30 a.m. They allege he stripped naked and defecated in the elevator. He then wiped his excrement on her door and threatened to burn the whole building down, police say. They allege that he then set his clothes on fire and shouted “I’m the devil!”

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) -- Disturbing details involving the slaughter of several cats have emerged now that video of a police interview with 24-year-old Alex Phelps has become public.

 

http://www.fox41.com/story/14361157/accused-cat-killer-says-cats-could-be-key-to-human-telepathy

 

Eventually the conversation turned towards Phelps' desire to become a doctor. (Dr. West?)

 

"I have thought about it," he said. "Like neurosurgery or something in genetics or something like that. Basically to put my name in the history books for something awesome. That's the only way that you can achieve immortality."

 

As the detective pressed further in his belief that Phelps was responsible for the mutilated cats, Phelps resisted.

 

"You're going too fast and you're still assuming that I've done this," he said. "If I've done this, then I have been possessed by a spirit, or I have been taken over by nanites or aliens or something like that and I've done it without my knowledge or my memory has been wiped." (oooooooooooooo k)

 

"You have some skill with the knife – I'll give you that," the detective said. "You possess surgical skills way beyond – say – me. A layman. An average person."

 

Eventually, Phelps began to share about his interest in cats -- an animal he called "fascinating." He said they can sense electromagnetic activity and that, as scientists began to understand this, it could open the door to human telepathy.
