Just the Facts? Part-Vampire...Part-Werewolf, Voices From Mars and Questions For JonBenet 's Brother

'I'm part-vampire and part-werewolf'

A Florida teen at the centre of a gruesome murder case has revealed her possible bloodlust brought on by the fact she's a vampire and werewolf.

Stephanie Pistey, 18, was arrested earlier this month and charged with accessory to murder in the death of 16-year-old Jacob Hendershot.

Hendershot was missing for weeks before his naked body was discovered in a storm drain in the town of Parker last month.

Cops said the suspects invited him to a home in July and he was killed by Miss Pistey's fiancé and others after she claimed Hendershot raped her.

A police report obtained by the Panama City News Herald said Hendershot’s throat was cut and he had been choked to death.

In an 18-minute jailhouse interview with news station WJHG, Miss Pistey revealed her relationship with the victim and the murder suspects.

She said she briefly dated Hendershot after she had broken up with one of the murder suspects, William Chase, but then got back together with Chase and got engaged.

Posts on Pistey's Facebook page prompted questions about whether the suspects were in a vampire cult, but she said it’s something else entirely.

Cracking a smile, she said: 'I know this is going to be crazy. But I believe I’m a vampire - part vampire and part werewolf, so it’s not really a cult, it's more just like my personality.'

While she refused to speak about the events surrounding Hendershot’s murder, she talked at great length about her supernatural background.

'Some people have called me a bavie before - a bio-experiment vampire.'

Miss Pistey claimed she has drunk the blood of her fiancé, 17-year-old Chase, who doesn’t share her 'curse.'

'William is more of a wannabe. I don’t even know how we came to like each other.'

Miss Pistey, knows that she faces life behind bars, and said she’s OK with it.

She said: ‘My dad did say since I was about 10 that I’m going to be in jail, and live in jail and rot in jail.

'Now that I’m here, I’m pretty much figuring out that I’m just going to stay here the rest of my life.'

Hendershot’s mother, Nancy Robinson, told the Panama City News Herald that she believes Miss Pistey was the 'ringleader' in her son’s death.

Miss Robinson, who lives in the same apartment building as Pistey, said the suspect tormented her about her son.

She told the paper: 'It took all I had to keep from yanking her blue hair out.'

Pistey claims she was present at the time of Hendershot’s murder, but not involved. She said: 'I was just the babysitter.'

But her Facebook account tells a different story.

On August 20, days after changing her relationship status to 'engaged,' she posted: 'Yea were merryied and hes going to die hes the one that killed jacob hendershot well i let him i wanted the blood.'

She claimed her account had been hacked. - dailymail

Voices from Mars

Dr. Richard Lawrence, the executive secretary of The Aetherius Society in Europe, visited Studio City last week to play rare tapes of the society’s founder Dr. George King who said he channeled a voice from Mars.

A video showed King going into a trance and then speaking in a measured voice to talk about spirituality and peace. These are a part of more than 600 collected Cosmic Transmissions that King made before he died in Santa Barbara in 1997.

Lawrence said he goes beyond teaching about UFOs and tries to explain the profound mystical implications of alien encounters. He wrote UFOs and the Extraterrestrial Message and holds lectures around the world.

“These benign beings might offer humanity a rare opportunity for spiritual evolution,” said Lawrence, who described his personal encounter seeing five objects in a circle in the skies of Great Britain.

He spoke to a crowd of about 80 at the Mutual UFO Network which meets at the Universalist Unitarian Church in Studio City.

“MUFON is known throughout the world as a research source, but I look at it from spiritualization standpoint,” Lawrence said. He pointed out that the description of an air-borne piece of crockery, a “flying saucer,” was described in ancient Japanese and early Hindu writings. He also said he believed that descriptions in the Bible are actually encounters with alien beings.

“We know that you can’t follow a star, so it’s possible that the object in the sky that these three wise gentlemen were following may have been an alien craft hovering over a stable and guiding them to the birth of a cosmic being,” Lawrence said.

Lawrence said he has given speeches throughout the world for more than 30 years.

“Back in the 1980s when I lectured and told people that government was keeping back information, people thought I was a nutter, but now if I were to say that the government is telling you the whole truth, people would think I’m a nutter,” he said. “That is how people have evolved in their thinking.”

Lawrence gives a workshop that includes 30 mystical and yoga practices and also authored a book, Gods, Guides and Guardian Angels. - studiocity.patch

Police Hope JonBenet's Brother May Yield Clues

The author of a book about the slaying of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey says police want to reinterview her brother, who was 9 when the young beauty queen was killed in 1996.

Burke Ramsey, now 23, graduated from Purdue University in Indiana last year and lives in Atlanta, according to his Facebook page.

He was exonerated by DNA testing after JonBenet was strangled in the Ramsey family home in Boulder, Colo., but authorities are reportedly hoping that he may remember additional details.

Lawrence Schiller, author of a book about the Ramsey case titled Perfect Murder, Perfect Town : The Uncensored Story of the JonBenet Murder and the Grand Jury's Search for the Final Truth told CBS's "The Early Show" on Tuesday that his sources had told him police were hoping to question the young man.

"They said the police had sent on their business cards and asked Burke, if his time permitted, if he could get in touch with them," Schiller said.

Boulder police refused today to confirm the report.

"We are not going to publicly reveal details about the investigation unless doing so would further the needs of the investigation," Police Chief Mark Beckner said in a statement.

After a seven-year hiatus, Boulder police became involved in the case again last year, creating a task force to review details and make recommendations. Beckner said at that time that advances in DNA testing and linguistics technology might help solve the case. He said agencies participating in the task force were the FBI, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Colorado attorney general's office, the Denver district attorney's office, and the Boulder County and Jefferson County sheriff's departments.

FBI spokesman Dave Joly told AOL News today that he had not heard of any developments in the case. Ramsey could not be reached for comment. His phone number is unlisted.

Last year, Beckner said authorities had investigated 140 people as potential suspects. He said in his statement today that based on recommendations from the task force, there has been additional contact with those who may have information pertaining to the case. Authorities refused to elaborate.

JonBenet was found bludgeoned and strangled in the basement of her family's house on Dec. 26, 1996. A ransom note seeking $118,000 was also found in the 7,000-square-foot home.

Boulder, an affluent community 35 miles northwest of Denver, was shaken by the crime, the only murder in 1996. Initially, prosecutors said JonBenet's parents, John and Patsy, were under "an umbrella of suspicion." A grand jury refused to indict them, but they weren't officially cleared until 2008.

Patsy Ramsey died in June 2006 of ovarian cancer. Less than two months later, John Mark Karr, a 41-year-old teacher in Thailand obsessed with JonBenet's killing, was arrested after making bizarre, detailed confessions in her death. He was brought back to the United States, but he was released after authorities said his DNA did not match evidence in the case. No one has ever been tried for the crime.

John Ramsey, who now lives in Michigan, ran unsuccessfully for the Michigan House of Representatives in 2004. - aolnews


Two-faced cat has beat the odds

We all know cats have nine lives. But this very special and much loved cat was born with two faces.

Frankenlouie, who lives with his owner in Milbury, Massachusetts, has a genetic birth deformity which caused him to grow the extra facial features.

The extraordinary feline's two faces were caused by a condition called Janus, which normally causes cats to live for only a few days.

But the unusual pet has beaten the odds to live long enough to celebrate his 12th birthday.

Now the feat of survival has earned him a place in the Guinness World Records.

Frankenlouie is already an internet star who has notched up thousands of hits on You Tube.

And the one-in-a million mog has featured on TV shows such as 'Strange, Freaky, True'.

The cat's owner is former veterinary nurse who does not want to be identified. - dailymail


Fire ants invade during football game

Just when you think you have seen everything in sports, along comes a high school football game that is postponed because of fire ants. No kidding. It happened Friday night at Hunter-Kinard-Tyler High.

Minutes before kickoff between Hunter-Kinard-Tyler and Calhoun County, referee Steve Hook concluded the field was unplayable. His customary pregame inspection of the grounds found 15 to 20 large, active fire-ant piles.

So Hook called the two coaches — Calhoun County’s Walt Wilson and H-K-T’s Jermaine Derricott — together. Hook informed the two that the safety of players, coaches, officials, even the chain gang, would be at risk if the game were played.
fire ants.

“Huh?” Wilson recalled saying to Hood. Then Wilson walked the field himself and could not believe what he saw.

“Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a country fella, so I don’t know all about these things,” Wilson said. “I don’t like science too much, either, so I don’t know all about that. But I know there were a lot of ants on that field.”

Derricott was upset by the decision.

“I don’t see how you can keep ants off the field,” he said. “We live in South Carolina. It’s not like we’re in New York or something. We’re in South Carolina. We have ants here. … I don’t think there’s a (football) field in South Carolina that doesn’t have ants.”

As anyone who lives in these parts knows, fire ants are annoying insects. They sting and inject venom called solenopsin into their target. It is bad stuff. Fire ants have been known to kill small animals and can be deadly to sensitive humans as well.

“It was a safety issue, and (the officials) took care of it,” said Bruce Hulion, commissioner of football officials for the South Carolina High School League. “I applaud them for doing that because, after the fact, when they have the teams and the officials come up with welts on their arms and legs with hand bites, that’s not the time to say, ‘We wish we had done this.’ ”

Derricott saw it differently. Calhoun County had made the 30-minute bus ride west through Orangeburg to Neeses, which is located about 30 miles south of Columbia. The teams had warmed up and were prepared to play a key Region 4-A game. Calhoun County is 4-1 overall and 3-0 in the region. Hunter-Kinard-Tyler is 1-3, 1-1.

With the home crowd settled into its seats, the last thing Derricott wanted was the game to be postponed. So he went to work attempting to get the field in playing order. School and athletics officials chipped in and attempted to dig the fire-ant piles out of the ground.

“That just made ’em mad,” Wilson said. “If you top off an ant hill, you just set off thousands of ants. That’s how it looked.”

Derricott said officials next poured salt into the ant hills but to no avail. Finally, a Hunter-Kinard-Tyler fan came out of the stands to offer assistance. He asked for a few minutes to go home and returned with fire-ant poison.

“Obviously, that’s not going to be an immediate answer,” Hulion said.

After about 30 minutes, Hood ruled that the game was to be postponed. He filed his report with the SCHSL, and all parties concerned spent part of Sunday and Monday attempting to find a makeup date.

By late Monday, the game was set to be played tonight at Hunter-Kinard-Tyler but only if the fire ants have been cleared to the satisfaction of game officials.

No word on whether Hunter-Kinard-Tyler has installed its new “fire ants” defense for the game. - thestate
