    Texas Tipster Told of Mass Grave by Angels

    Detectives said it was a tip from a psychic that led them to a home in Liberty County searching for a mass grave that did not exist.

    Now the tipster - who calls herself not a psychic but a prophetess - says her story has been blown out of proportion.

    The Texas woman - who only wanted to be identified by her nickname Angel - said she's worked with law enforcement in the past, and told CBS Affiliate KHOU she was just doing what she thought was right.

    Angel said she called police because she thought three children would be found at in Hardin, Texas, and said nothing about dozens of bodies, reports KHOU correspondent Courtney Zubowski.

    "They up-front asked me how I got the information, and I am a reverend. I am a prophetess and I get my information from Jesus and the angels, and I told them that I had 32 angels with me and they were giving me the information and then it went from there," she said.

    Liberty County Sheriff's deputies, the FBI, DPS officers and the media converged on the town of Hardin looking for signs of a mass grave. A search at the home turned up nothing.

    "I will never call in again," said Angel. "I would never call in again at all, because if they can blow this up and it can get all turned around, I'm not the one that called the media and blew it all out of proportion."

    Meanwhile, authorities say the tipster could face charges for filing a false report.

    I hate it when 32 angels lie to me.

    It's hard to be mad at the women for this situation as she is obviously bat-**** crazy. On the other hand it is very easy to be mad at the detectives who took her call seriously because the tip came from someone that is obviously bat-**** crazy.

    Memo to law enforcement.... if a tipster claims angels provided the tip to them... they might want to do a bit more investigating before taking action on said tip and alerting the media.


    It's Prohm Time!!

    I guess what I don't understand is how someone like this is derided as a charlatan when saying Jesus told her something, but our politicians are lauded by a large portion of the population when they say the same:
