The Sheriff’s department of Liberty County Texas, about 70 miles northeast of Houston, received a tip about multiple bodies buried at a farmhouse near Hardin, Texas. The tip came from a psychic who goes by the nom-de-psyche of Angel. She also claims to be a prophetess and that her information came from Jesus and 32 angels.
Liberty County Sheriff’s Capt. Rex Evans said “[w]e have to take tips like this very seriously.” No you don’t. It’s bunk. It’s always been bunk and it will always be bunk. Only an idiot would take this kind of tip seriously.
Liberty County Sheriff’s deputies, the FBI, and the Texas Rangers converged on the farmhouse and found … wait for it … nothing. The public found out that these people are idiots for wasting taxpayer funds on nonsense. It is disgraceful that in a time of scientific enlightenment this kind of episode can still take place.
Angel will not be charged because she did not act with malice or criminal intent. Stupid is also not a crime in Texas.
