News of the news

Y'know that kid they found who'd been kidnapped for four years? Sylvia Browne told his parents he was dead. We all know how caring she is for families in need, so she only asked for $700/half-hour to help find the body out in the woods. Apparently, "Browne's 'vision' of his death caused search teams to redirect their efforts and drew dozens of calls from the public who believed they lived near the woods matching Browne's descriptions."
And let's hope the parents just moved on and got over their son's death four year's ago. I mean, can you imagine how much worrying they would have done over all that time, and how they would have kept hounding the police to keep looking?
