"The nebula of the Greater Bear will arrive in the vicinity of earth... and will fill the space of five hundred suns at the horizon. It will more and more cover up the light of the sun until the days will be like nights at full moon ... By this time mankind will be stricken with terror. Birds will be like reptiles and will not use their wings. Animals of the ground, in fear and alarm, will raise such a clamor that it will make human hearts tremble. Men will flee their abodes in order not to see the weird occurrence." -- Johann Friede
"World War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the light (of divine wisdom) in the other old countries. The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee ... That time is not far off. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask. He represents a blue star, far off and yet invisible, which will make its appearance soon." -- Hopi prophecy by Frank Waters
NEW PREDICTION: 9/28/14 -- The brightest supernova on record in the northern hemisphere will reach its peak magnitude in May 2015. The base 7 system recognizes that the event of SN1987a may repeat as a large, bright blue counterpart in 2015. 1987a suddenly became visible in the southern hemisphere as a very faint 5th magnitude star in February 1987. By May it reached the peak magnitude of 3. However, to be the blue supernova of Hopi prophecy, it will have to become very bright, much brighter than magnitude 3. So bright in the northern hemisphere, in fact, that many millions, possibly a few billion people will see it. If prophet Johann Friede can be believed, the supernova will be close enough to earth for its blue ring nebula to nearly encompass the horizon when it rises or sets. So gigantic will the nebula appear that it will terrify many who gaze upon it. Yet, it will be a sign, an omen, after which a more terrible series of celestial events will occur, and these will bring great destruction, death, and madness ... and ultimately the dreadful three days of darkness.

NEW PREDICTION: 9/29/13 -- Base 7 dating: May 2015.
There are only two precedents for such an event in the Persian Gulf: the "accidental" attack on the USS Stark by an Iraqi Exocet missile in May 1988 and the terrorist bombing of the USS Cole in October 2000. Al Qaeda and Bin Laden were blamed for that attack.
If there is an attack in October 2014, then this will be the second such strike ... or else the first.
It is also possible that this attack may "accidental": launched by a Middle Eastern ally to get America more involved than it may be at this time. Foot-dragging regarding the US or Nato getting involved militarily in the civil war in Syria may still be going on.
As the Syrian Civil War spreads from nation to nation in the Middle East and Al Qaeda become increasingly weaponised by arsenals from fallen countries (such as the AQIM in post-Gadhafi Libya), the line between acts of terrorism and acts of war will become progressively blurred. Attacks on naval warships will become so sophisticated in time that it will scarcely matter if the ones carrying them out are "freedom fighters" or "terrorists" or a nation's military. It is tempting to believe, if a nation is responsible, it will either be Iran or a new tyranny in Iraq.
The next opportunity for this type of attack therefore occurs based on the USS Stark precedent, in May 2015.
TYPO CORRECTION (12/29/15): The Iraqi Exocet missile attack on the USS Stark was in May 1987, not May 1988 as misprinted in the above typo. That is why the vector was set for May 2015 in the first place. The prediction as is ... right, wrong, or close ... still stands.

NEW PREDICTION: 2/23/14 -- Base 7 dating: May 2015.
This time around I'm not going to suggest that this eruption may be Yellowstone ... it might be, but it is impossible to be sure. There have only been two significant eruptions of volcanoes on the US mainland: Lassen Peak, located in California, in May 1915, and Mount St. Helen's, located in the state of Washington, in May 1980. The Lassen Peak precedent, if it were to repeat again in this century, would have done so in either May 2006 or May 2013. No US volcano erupted at either time, leaving the Mount St. Helen's precedent for another major volcanic eruption happening in either May 2001, May 2008, or soon in May 2015. Interestingly enough, there was a large earthquake that shook Seattle, Washington in February 2001 (which I predicted on this website). Since 2008 was uneventful, it may be a good idea to be concerned on the 14th anniversary of the Seattle quake.
It may begin as an earthquake, but in very little time it will be all too apparent that it is something much worse: a volcanic eruption or, even worse, a supervolcanic eruption.
Mount St. Helen's ... Again??
THE REAL DEAL ... THE REAL DEAL ...
WARNING ... WARNING ... WARNING ...
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Nostradamus, Quatrain 1.67 ~
great famine that I sense approaching will often turn, then
become universal: So great
and long that one will come to grab the root from the tree and the infant from the breast.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 2.75 ~
voice of the insolent bird, above the respirator pipe from the
floor: So high
will the wheat come to rise, that man towards men shall become a Man-eater.
NEW PREDICTION: 1/5/13 -- Most of Europe will slide into a terrible famine lasting at least two or three years when the rains begin in May 2015. Britain, France, and Germany will be especially hard hit, although Italy and the Adriatic Balkans states will not escape. Initially, the first year, this may even spread into Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, and the Baltics.
Within a few years time it will become worldwide.
I do not know if this will be a consequence of war, natural disasters, or even manipulations by the so-called "powers that be" that run things behind the scenes. Nostradamus warns in Quatrain 2.75 that bushels of wheat will be stacked to the ceilings of storage buildings, plenty of wheat to go around in other words, when a terrible famine causes man to become "a Man-eater."
How long this famine lasts will depend on the actual cause.
FAMINE ALERT: RUSSIAN CROPS THREATENED BY PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS
swarms plague southern Russia - August 5, 2015.
Moscow (CNN)Millions of locusts have descended on farmlands in southern Russia, devouring entire fields of crops and causing officials to declare a state of emergency in the region. A vast area of at least 800 hectares is currently being affected as the swarms of insects, each measuring about 8 centimeters long, annihilate fields of corn and other crops.
It's been more than 30 years since this part of southern Russia suffered such a dense plague of locusts, according to local officials. Officials say at least 10% of crops have already been destroyed, and the locust feeding frenzy is far from over, threatening to devastate the livelihoods of local farmers.
Walking through what remains of his corn field in the Stavropol region, one farmer, Pyotr Stepanchenka, looks distraught. "Look," he says to the camera, "there is nothing left of the corn. The locusts ate it all, from the leaves to the cobs."
On state television, Russian news broadcasts are linking the plague to climate change, connecting the phenomenon to recent flooding amid higher than average temperatures.
Officials from the Russian ministry of agriculture have declared a state of emergency, but appear helpless to prevent the destruction. They say they are stepping up efforts to save the harvest by increasing crop-spraying flights. But high summer temperatures, they say, are decreasing the effectiveness of the powerful pesticides they use.
Also, officials say the locust swarms are moving fast across southern Russia, sometimes too fast for the authorities to keep up, leaving a trail of destruction behind them. "In Kalmikya, Astrakhan, Volgagrad, and Dagestan, there is already no food left for the locusts, so they have moved on to other sources of food," says Tatiana Drishcheva of the Russia Argricultural Center, a government organization. "They have wingspans of nearly 12 centimeters, like small sparrows," she added.
Some frustrated locals, facing ruin, have posted videos of themselves desperately trying to hold back the tide. But it all seems futile in the face of such an overwhelming Russian swarm.
COMMENTS (8/22/15): It may well be that this event wil play out in reverse, starting in Russia and ending in Britain, France, and Germany. Famines are typically slow-burning events; however, a major war could hasten the process. Thus, we may not know the whole story, if there is to be one, until late 2016 or 2017. This is only an alert.

NEW PREDICTION: 2/6/15 -- Base 7 dating: May-August 2015. The trend began with the murder of Playboy centerfold and actress Dorothy Stratten in August 1980. After shooting Dorothy fatally in the head and having sex with her naked corpse, husband Paul Snider put the shotgun he used to kill his wife in his mouth and pulled the trigger. OJ Simpson was found to be not guilty in the stabbing death of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, who was nearly decapitated along with a male companion in the driveway of her home in June 1994. Actor Robert Blake was also acquitted in the murder of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, who was shot in the back of the head while waiting for Blake in their car outside a restaurant in May 2001. The trend then shifted to the sports world when pro-wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife Nancy and son Daniel, then hanged himself in June 2007 ... a year premature of the base 7 target year of 2008. One year in this otherwise "every seven years trend" that was skipped over for some reason was 1987. That means the wife of a famous actor or other renown figure or someone who is herself a model/actress married to a homicidal nut job may get lucky and have a 1 in 5 chance of being skipped this year. But don't count on it.

Pamela Anderson has won a restraining order extension against her estranged husband.
The 47-year-old Baywatch star is currently embroiled in a legal battle with professional poker player Rick Salomon after she filed for divorce from him in February.
She was granted a temporary restraining order against him and Judge Marc D. Gross ordered an extension for it in court on Friday.
I'm happy that we get to leave the restraining order in effect because that's the most important thing -- our safety and the safety of my family, Pamela told Access Hollywood outside the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles.
Pamelas legal decree against Rick is now effective up to May 6.
The stars initial temporary restraining order filing contained incendiary accusations against her estranged spouse. TMZ previously reported she accused him of attempting to strangle and smother her with a pillow while they were having sex.
This is the second time Pamela and Rick are going through a divorce.
The pair confirmed they had wed again in January 2014. While they kept details under wraps, it was thought to have occurred during the Christmas holidays while they were vacationing.
They were previously married for just 10 weeks after tying the knot in Las Vegas in October 2007.
In his most recent annulment papers, Rick claims he was defrauded into marrying Pamela again. Apparently the poker star asserts Rick he has solid proof" their second marriage is based on a lie.
Filed Against Estranged Husband Rick Salomon
By TheImproper Staff, March 14th, 2015
Pamela Anderson, the fetching Baywatch star and Hollywood sex siren, has won a restraining order against estranged husband Rick Salomon following a kinky sex session gone wrong. She claims he tried to smother her with a pillow and strangle her.
Salomon has responded to the charges with allegations of his own, claiming that Anderson is a serial baby killer, because shes had multiple abortions.
The nasty turn in the couples divorce stems from a bedroom rendezvous in January, according to court papers obtained by gossip site TMZ. Anderson, 47, claims Salomon placed a pillow over her face while they were having sex, then tried to strangle her. But whether murder was his motive remains to be seen.
Causing mild asphyxiation during sex has long been viewed in kinky sex circles as a way to heighten sexual orgasm. It even has scientific designations: asphyxiophilia, autoerotic asphyxia or hypoxyphilia, according to the American Psychiatric Association. The medical definition is intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for the purposes of sexual arousal.
The way it works is carbon dioxide builds up in the brain. That causes feelings of giddiness, lightheadness and pleasure. The feelings heighten sexual sensations during a lucid, semi-hallucinogenic state called hypoxia. The practice, however, is potentially dangerous. If oxygen is cut off to the brain for too long it leads to unconsciousness and even death.
Whether Anderson willingly agreed to be strangled for sexual pleasure and Salomon got a little to aggressive, or he tried to kill her is unknown at the moment. Salomon has not responded to the charges. During sex and other times, he also called her degrading names like slut and crack whore. That can also be a part of kinky sex play. But Anderson said it was part of a pattern of harassmentand abuse she suffered in her relationship. She says shes now suffering severe emotional distress.
Salomon, however, alleges that shes the twisted individual. He claims she begged him and previous husband Kid Rock to have children, then got abortions when she became pregnant. Salomon is seeking an annulment, according to TMZ.
COMMENTS (4/23/15): It's still a bit early in the year and the prediction may still be completely and totally fulfilled by some other celebrity spouses. But if there is any truth to Pamela Anderson's allegations, she could have easily been murdered or accidentally killed during kinky sex involving asphyxiation by smothering and strangling. In a recent news interview outside of the courthouse she stated she still fears her estranged husband may kill her or in some manner harm her children. The fact that she is currently alive and well makes the entire thing look like a three ring circus, laughable, and not to be taken seriously. But what if she had died??? And what if this latest restraining order is not the final chapter of a seeming farce, but the opening chapter of a looming tragedy?
Bear in mind that as long ago as 2000, I was projecting a potential for Madonna being killed, even decapitated, in an auto accident ... or else murdered by strangulation due to a Nostradamus quatrain indicating that a famous blonde star of the future would meet with such a fate:
night in bed the Supreme one strangled, the elevated blonde
having tarried too long:
By three the empire is subrogated and enslaved, she is put to death nor packet read.
The second candidate I discussed on the page for potentially fulfilling such a role was Pamela Anderson. At the time I compared both Madonna and Pamela Anderson with the late 50's and 60's actress Jayne Mansfield. The next window of opportunity for the Mansfield scenario playing out is March 2016. I have as of yet to flesh out the prediction other than a few notes, but they can be seen at top of page under the prediction title Who Is the Next Jayne Mansfield? Sexy Actress or Pop Singer is Brained or Decapitated in Terrible Accident.
Such a scenario could happen a year early. There is also the following prediction for May-June 2016: Famous Actress and Actor Found Hanged; Suicide Pact or Seperate Incidents? What if this is (or was) the direction the dangerous sex play was moving in?
I think Pam Anderson's situation was and possibly still is far more serious than it appears to be on the face of things. Her situation smacks of the last time on the current base 7 timeline that there was a spousal murder/suicide ... when pro-wrestler Chris Benoit strangled his wife Nancy and son Daniel, then hanged himself. And, with May 2015 only around the corner, the timing for yet another celebrity spouse murder or murder/suicide is getting dangerously close. Assuming Anderson's allegations are correct, the event earlier this year qualifies as a CLOSE CALL. And this in no way writes off the prediction ... she may remain in danger from Rick Salomon and succumb to an attack by him ... or else some other unfortunate couple may end up fulfilling it.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: June 2015. Yes! Once again! Last time (June 2008) I was nearly right when Big Brown won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness and seemed set to win the third and last race, the Belmont Stakes. However, it has been contended that a dislodged shoe on the horse's right hind leg could have been the cause of his losing the race. The shoe might have come loose during the race and gotten pushed back in while he was running. 2014's first Triple Crown hopeful since Big Brown, California Chrome, likewise performed great during the first two races, but wimped out at the Belmont, falling back to fourth place. I think there will another hopeful in 2015 and, finally, a new Triple Crown winner.

Jockey Victor Espinoza took three tries, but finally claimed the Triple Crown.
He is the first Mexican-born jockey to win the Triple Crown and oldest jockey to complete the feat.
Where many in the past had failed, Pharoah broke the mold and wasn't really pushed at the end of the race, pulling away from the field by five and a half lengths. "He (American Pharoah) does everything so easy. ... He moves like a Ferrari," owner Ahmed Zayat said. "Today is about American Pharoah, and what he means to our beautiful sport."
Trainer Bob Baffert, who came up just short of the Triple Crown multiple times, was breathing a sigh of relief after the race. "I was really beginning to dislike the Triple Crown," Baffert said. "I told Victor in the paddock, 'Go ahead and ride him, he's ready. That little horse, he deserves it."
"I don't think it's sunk in yet," Zayat said. "We won an unbelievable race in my own state. I have been extremely confident all week. I looked at my wife in the post parade and I told her get ready to be the owner of the 12th Triple Crown winner. He looked unbelievable: focused, relaxed, full of energy."
COMMENTS (6/10/15): Well, can I pick a winner or not? LOL. Just goes to show that predicting the future isn't all gloom and doom! A lot of people made some pretty good money on this race. If you were one of them, and you trusted my prediction that there would be a Triple Crown Winner this year, please do donate a little something via PayPal button at top of page .. I could sure use some help right now (I would have bet if I could have afforded it). PREDICTION FULFILLED, in any case.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: June 2015. DESCRIPTION: 1/19/15: Fourteen years ago, in 2001, opera singer Jenny Grahn was found hanged in her home at the age of 30. Six, rather than seven, years later opera tenor Jerry Hadley committed suicide by gunshot to the head. The Grahn suicide occurred almost exactly seventy (7 x 10) years after female opera star Santa Biondo left three suicide notes and disappeared in December 1931. Her body was searched for by police in woods and lakes, but never found. She was eventually found living in seclusion and, with the aid of friends and family, returned once again to perform at the opera company, retiring professionally in 1938.
The Santa Biondo suicide scare clearly set the precedent for the actual suicide of Jenny Grahn seventy years later. But rather than a repetition in 2008, seven years after 2001, Jerry Hadley committed suicide a year premature in 2007. Thus, since there were no suicides by opera singers in 2014, we must assume if the timeline is still active, it will follow with a repetition fourteen (2 x 7) years after 2001: in June 2015.

An opera singer hanged herself after fearing she was losing her voice and would be ousted from her amateur singing group, an inquest heard. Pensioner Elizabeth Rogers was found hanged by her husband. Despite being rushed to hospital still breathing, Mrs Rogers died several hours later.
In a statement read to an inquest, her husband Edward said his wife had loved singing and been an active member of her local operatic society. However, in the weeks leading up to her death she had visited the doctor complaining about toilet troubles, tiredness and difficulty sleeping, which he said came in part from her fear of being dropped from the choir if she failed a voice check.
Reading the statement, Berkshire coroner Peter Bedford said: "His wife had visited her doctor several times before her death, describing tiredness and toilet troubles and difficulty sleeping at night. In addition she had put on some weight which she was quite upset about. His wife loved singing, she was an active member of the choir of her local operatic society. However, at the age of 81 years she was worried she would fail an upcoming voice check and politely be asked to leave."
The inquest in Reading, Berkshire, heard that Mrs Rogers had called her GP and asked to be put on a course of anti-depressants less than two weeks before she died.
On the day of her death her husband said she was in high spirits and told him to go off to work, waving him off from the door. However, Mr Edwards returned three hours later to find his wife hanged. Razor blades and blood were also found in the kitchen. He called 999 and paramedics rushed to the family's home in Florence Road, Sandhurst, to find that Mrs Rogers was still breathing.
She was taken to Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey. But after arriving at hospital she suffered a cardiac arrest and showed signs of severe brain injury caused by the lack of oxygen and was pronounced dead within hours.
A post-mortem examination revealed she had numerous small cuts to her forearms, hands and feet, which were consistent with being self inflicted from a razor blade.
Dr Robert Chapman, a pathologist at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough, concluded that the cause of death was hanging. Recording a verdict of suicide, Mr Bedford said that he was sure Mrs Rogers had taken her own life because she would not have known when her husband would return and therefore it was not a "cry for help".
"Mr Rogers has not expressed an opinion about the circumstance of his wife's death," he added. "There is no doubt that his wife chose an opportunity to suspend herself, as described, at their home address while she was aware he was away. Her husband has highlighted one or two issues in her life that would have left her feeling low in mood. I can be satisfied Mrs Rogers took her own life, but I think it is important to add that she did so whilst suffering from depression."

NEW PREDICTION: 10/2/13 -- Base 7 dating: June 2015.
Seven years ago, on June 28, 2008, Russian supermodel Ruslana Korshunova, 20, committed suicide by jumping from the balcony of her ninth-floor Manhattan apartment. The Vogue model's spectacular suicide was widely reported, passersby not witnessing the actual fall at first believing her crushed body had been struck by a car. No clue to this day has ever revealed why Ruslana chose to end her life.
It is fortunate in this case that this base 7 timeline can be altered and death prevented. Seven years earlier, on May 1, 2001, supermodel Niki Taylor was critically hurt in a car crash. At one point she was not expected to recover from her extensive internal injuries. Following extensive surgery, her health began to rebound in late June. Sadly, seven years earlier, Niki's sister, teen model Krissy Taylor, died from an asthma attack.
Also in 2001, on September 29, actress Sharon Stone suffered a near-fatal cerebral hemorrhage, but recovered in late October after life-saving surgery and treatment.
Those two events, Niki Taylor's and Sharon Stone's, prove that a person on any "line of death" can literally cheat Death. Likewise, actress Shelley Long, who was marked to be next on "the tragic blonde icon" timeline in 2004 (Thelma Todd, Carole Lombard, Marilyn Monroe, Sharon Tate, Princess Diana, etc), miraculously survived what would have otherwise been recorded as suicide by drugs overdose.
Not so fortunate was actress Elizabeth Hartman who, on June 10, 1987, fourteen (2 x 7) years before Niki Taylor's car crash, committed suicide by leaping to her death from the window of her fifth floor apartment ... much like supermodel Ruslana Korshunova would twenty-one years later.
Determining who may be in danger in 2015 would be a difficult task since the victim may either be an actress or a supermodel ... and there are many supermodels these days. However, there is a good chance that whoever it may be will cheat Death just as supermodel Taylor and actress Stone did in 2001. Then again, if suicide is attempted, she will likely not survive.
The "Next Ruslana Korshunova" Turned Out To Be A Male Supermodel
Sarpong, Co-Host of MTVs Yo Momma, Dies
October 28, 2015 | 05:14PM PT
News Editor, Variety.com
Actor and model Sam Sarpong, known for co-hosting MTVs Yo Momma with Wilmer Valderrama, died Monday, his rep confirmed. He was 40.
Sarpong died after jumping off a bridge in Pasadena, Calif., according to E! News. The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner has ruled his death a suicide, with an autopsy pending.
It is with great sadness that the family of Samuel Sarpong, Jr. must share the news that Sam has passed away, said his publicist in a statement. The circumstances surrounding his death are currently under investigation and no additional details are known at this time. Information about final arrangements will be forthcoming. The family appreciates the thoughts prayers and other expressions of sympathy, and request their privacy be respected at this extremely difficult time.
[Sarpong] had a pure heart and always went out of his way to help others, his rep, J.D. Sobol, told Variety. We will all miss him dearly.
The British-American star was born in London and moved to Los Angeles with his father when he was 11. He would go on to book modeling work, including being the face of Tommy Hilfiger for six years, as well as walking runways for Versace, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Donna Karan.
Sarpongs first onscreen role came in an episode of Claire Danes My So-Called Life in 1994. His big TV break, however, came in 2006, when MTV cast him as one of its co-hosts for Yo Momma. Sarpong and Valderrama traveled across the country for three seasons to find the best trash talkers. After the show ended in 2007, Sarpong hosted BET pre-awards show All Access.
His other TV credits include Pacific Blue, Family Matters, ER, Boston Public, Everybody Hates Chris, Veronica Mars, Bones and 24. He also had a role in FXs heavily buzzed American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, which is set to debut next year.
He appeared in films Carmen: The Hip Hopera, Love Dont Cost a Thing and Anchor Baby.
Sarpong is survived by his father, Samuel Sarpong Sr., and his sister, June.
COMMENTS (1/12/16): Like Elizabeth Hartman and Ruslana Korshunova, male supermodel Sam Sarpong JUMPED. And this happens every so often on these timelines ... what appears to be a female line of tragedy suddenly repeats with a male tragedy instead. Likewise, what are often exclusively male lines of tragedy have produced an occasional female alternative. The most famous of these timelines, the "Marilyn Monroe" line of tragedy, which comes up again in 2018 and witnessed the deaths of Isadora Duncan, Thelma Todd, Carole Lombard, Sharon Tate, Grace Kelly, and Princess Diana, among many others, also witnessed the deaths of Rudolph Valentino, James Dean, Sal Mineo, and Christopher Reeve. The line of death that claimed the lives of Sam Cooke, Jim Morrison, Keith Moon, Rock Hudson, John F. Kennedy Jr., Paul Walker and others actually began with a female tragedy, "Elvis girl" actress Judy Tyler, who was killed in a horrific car crash in 1957 (actor Paul Walker died the same exact way in 2013). In any event, this is a PREDICTION FULFILLED, although the anticipated gender was wrong. This will be a lesson for the future.

NEW PREDICTION: 10/21/13 -- Irrespective of the early 2013 news alarms that a comet named Siding Spring might slam into Mars in October 2014, this prediction was still going to go up. The chances of the comet striking have since been reduced to virtually 1 in 120,000. Nevertheless, there is a strong base 7 possibility that either an asteroid or a comet, or fragments from it, will actually hit the Red Planet in July 2015. The probability is that if Mars is impacted, it will more likely be by an asteroid than by a comet. Should this occur, it will be the first event of this type to take place in twenty-one (3 x 7) years since fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 smacked into Jupiter in July 1994.
This is not a minor event by any means ... if it occurs. If either a comet or an asteroid slams into Mars, it will be following a base 7 line or path running from Jupiter to Mars to Earth to Venus to (possibly) Mercury. If the impact on Mars is sufficiently dynamic and observable from earth, then it is quite likely our planet will be next in line. The question is how long will a major asteroid impact be deferred? Seven years (2022)? Fourteen years (2029)? Or another twenty-one years (2036)? That, interestingly enough, takes us to April 2036: the month and year a doomsday asteroid called Apophis is supposed to strike our planet.
Watch those bright red flashes closely ... depending on the size of the body impacting, they may well register with the naked eye! Then think about Earth ...

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: July 2015. Possibly an undiagnosed form of cancer or else further complications from a fall and an injury to her head in 2012 that required removal of a blood clot in 2013. She may suffer the same fate as Eva Perón in July 1952.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: July 2015. DESCRIPTION: 12/5/14: Biden threatens US unilateral military action may be necessary in Ukraine and the Baltics if Russian troops do not withdraw from Ukraine, Lithuania, and possibly Georgia and Moldova. Putin counters with a warning that World War III in Eastern Europe and the Balkans will follow if America sends in troops. Rolling his eyes in fury, Putin shouts out that targets are already being determined for future naval, air, and land attack in Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. Biden warns that Russian assistance to Iran's development of increased plutonium enrichment and possible construction of nuclear weapons will not be tolerated. Putin laughs this veiled threat off, promising any Israeli or US attack on Iran's nuclear facilities would assure Russian tanks and jets would descend like a swarm of locusts on the Persian Gulf oil fields, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Israel. Biden blurts out with a quizzical smile,"You can't be serious!" Putin laughs, smiles and says "Try me."

NEW PREDICTION: 9/27/14 -- On the night of July 14, 1966, Richard Speck systematically tortured, raped, and murdered eight student nurses from South Chicago Community Hospital.
High on alcohol and drugs, Speck threatened and attacked the women with a gun and a butcher's knife, bound and gagged them, then, over the course of the night, raped each one, strangling and/or stabbing each one dead afterwards. A ninth student nurse, Cora Amurao, escaped to testify against him by hiding under a bed while her housemates were killed.
Detectives would find Gloria Davy dead on the sofa, naked and sexually assaulted. Upstairs, Pamela Wilkening had been gagged and stabbed through the heart. Suzanne Farris was in a pool of blood, having been strangled with her own stockings and stabbed 18 times. Mary Ann Jordan was stabbed three times. Nina Schmale was stabbed in a pattern around her broken neck. Valentina Paison's throat had been cut. Merlita Gargullo had been stabbed and strangled. Patricia Matusek was also strangled. The women had been so disfigured that the director of nurses was able to recognize only 3 of them.
What made this case even more horrific as we look back only a few weeks later, on August 1, 1966, was the crime committed by student Charles Whitman who would climb a 27-story tower at the University of Texas and shoot dead 15 people and wound 31 others before being shot and killed by Austin police.
Thus, the Speck "Student Nurse Murders" (aka "Richard Speck Sex Murders") and the Whitman "Texas Tower Massacre" are unlikely to be forgotten anytime soon since they occurred only a few weeks apart, shocking the nation, and helping to define the violent domestic climate in the United States during the summer of 1966.
In July 2015, it is a growing likelihood that the mass murder or serial killings of at least eight young women will occur. If a mass murder, it will occur at one location in a short time as was the case in 1966. If they are serial murders, it could happen in a larger area (even nationwide) over a longer period of time. But something about them will be linked. Perhaps they will all be nurses or college students.
Location may be a key to this situation. I would stress that, similar to North Carolina in 2008, Virginia may be the next state to watch based on murders that have occurred there since 2009, including those of Xin Yang (decapitated at Virginia Tech), Morgan Harrington (2009), and Vanessa Pham (2010), and the disappearances of Samantha Ann Clarke (2010) and DaShad Laquinn Smith (2012), the disappearance and murder of Alexis Murphy (2013), and the very recent disappearance of Hannah Graham (2014).
Thus, it is possible there will be an escalation of disappearances and murders in Virginia during 2015. But perhaps not if the communities and authorities there are more vigilant. Another state to watch, perhaps, will be Oklahoma.
Watch location closely, in any event. Some events may be prevented, even if all can not be. And remember that if there is a next time in 2015 it could all occur in one night like it did in 1966.
2017 UPDATE ON FEMALE JOGGER SERIAL MURDERS OF 2016: THREE MORE JOGGERS MISSING
vanish from same area in northern California where jogger
Sherri Papini was abducted
January 2, 2017 7:29pm
Marnie ONeill news.com.au
AS POLICE struggle to make sense of the unsolved Sherri Papini abduction case, at least three other women have vanished in mysterious circumstances from the same region.
Amy Snow, 25, Jessica Roggenkamp, 44 and Stacey Smart, 52, have all disappeared in the past two months from small northern Californian communities less than a three-hour drive from Redding, where Mrs Papini was kidnapped.
While authorities have stopped short of linking the cases, all of which involve women with blonde hair and blue eyes, they have become the subject of intense speculation in local papers and on social media.
Ms Papini made international headlines when she disappeared on November 2 while jogging in the town of Mountain Gate in Shasta County.
Her husband Keith reported the 34-year-old missing after he came home from work to find she hadnt picked up their children from daycare. Her mobile phone and headphones were found near Sunrise Drive where she was last seen, less than 2km from the family residence.
The story took a bizarre turn when Mrs Papini was found bound and badly injured on the side of the Interstate 5 in Yolo County more than 200km from her home on Thanksgiving morning.
She had been starved, beaten and branded during her 22 days in captivity but could tell police little about her abductors, whom she described as two Hispanic-speaking women armed with a handgun.
Mrs Papinis release came less than 48 hours after controversial Redding kidnap consultant Cameron Gamble released a video offering an undisclosed ransom from an anonymous benefactor in exchange for Mrs Papinis safe return.
Mr Gamble believes his reverse ransom (when money is offered in the absence of a ransom demand) address, which went viral on social media, directly resulted in Mrs Papinis release.
I told the captors the whole world was watching, he told The Guardian at the weekend. I wanted them to feel they were being hunted, that the money we were offering was so enticing they couldnt trust their own mother not to betray them.
Mr Gamble has said he believes Mrs Papini was targeted by sex traffickers, a growing trade authorities linked to more than 800 cases in California in 2016 alone.
He expanded on the subject in a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) and also addressed allegations circulating online that he was using the case to spruik his business.
While many remain sceptical of Mrs Papinis story and Mr Gambles role in it, the ex-soldier has since found himself in high demand, contacted by desperate families of other missing women in the area.
The daughter of Stacey Smart, who went missing on the same day as Mrs Papini from the nearby town of Lewiston but received a fraction of the publicity, is one of those to have enlisted Mr Gambles help.
(He) is helping us, Nicole Santos-Hamann told the Record Searchlight.
Hes giving us advice and kind of helping us with coming up with backers, to help us with a bounty or a reward leading up to her whereabouts.
Ms Smart, 51, also known as Stacey Hamilton, is blonde with blue eyes.
The next to vanish was Amy Snow, 25. Ms Snow was reported missing by her mother on December 1 after leaving her home in Salyer a small town in Trinity County located less than three hours from Redding, where Mrs Papini was kidnapped, and around two hours from Lewiston, where Ms Smart disappeared.
Numerous searches conducted by police and volunteers in the area and in neighbouring counties have failed to uncover any trace of the young woman, who is described as 165cm with blonde hair and blue eyes.
Sightings of Ms Snow in the town of Arcata, which is located further north towards Humboldt County which has its own dark reputation thanks to the unsolved cases of five missing women have so far come to nothing.
Days later, Jessica Roggenkamp disappeared from Anderson, a town set in the Redding municipality.
The 44-year-old was last seen on December 10 by two motorists who told police they had stopped to help her change a tyre.
They said Ms Roggenkamp had told them she was on her way to a party in Harrison Gulch, a popular camping and hiking area in the south east corner of Shasta County.
Whether she made it or not remains a mystery; just before midnight on December 11, her 2010 black Ford Mustang was found abandoned in a remote area of Trinity County, south of Highway 36.
There was no petrol in the tank and the car was unlocked, with the keys still in the ignition.
A sleeping bag, a duffel bag stuffed with clothes and a pillow were found inside but investigators say Ms Roggenkamps purse and mobile phone were missing.
Anderson Police Department Sergeant Steve Blunk has said that while there was no sign of foul play at the scene, there was also no indication of what might have happened to Ms Roggenkamp.

Karina Vetrano, 30, and Vanessa Marcotte, 27, were found dead in chillingly similar circumstances just days apart
Police probing the deaths of two young women raped and murdered while out jogging have refused to rule out a connection between the two grisly killings.
Google account manager Vanessa Marcotte vanished while out running near to her mum's Massachusetts home on Sunday.
The 27-year-old's body was later discovered by a police dog unit in woods just half a mile from the property in Princeton.
Police said the New Yorker had been sexually assaulted and had been burned on her head, feet and hands.
Marcotte's horrific death came just days after lookalike jogger, Karina Vetrano, was sexually assaulted and murdered while out running in Queens.
The 30-year-old's battered body was found face down on an overgrown path in Howard Beach, in Queens, New York.
Police have now sparked fears of a serial killer after refusing to rule out a link between the two murders.
NYPD spokesman Peter Donald told The New York Post: "We havent ruled anything out. Were going to continue to investigate this case and follow the leads where they take us."
Worcester County (Massachusetts) District Attorney Joseph Early Jr also suggested a connection between the killings at a press conference on Tuesday.
He told reporters: "We understand there are similarities.
"Were approaching this from every angle. Were fairly early in this investigation."
In a statement, Google paid tribute to Marcotte, who had worked as a healthcare account manager for 18 months.
The internet search giant said: "Vanessa Marcotte was a much loved member of the Google team, working in our New York office for the last year and a half, and known for her ubiquitous smile, passion for volunteer work and love of Boston sports.
"We are deeply shocked and saddened, and our thoughts are with her family and friends."
In a statement outside their home, Vetrano's parents, Cathy and Phillip, paid tribute to their "magical" daughter.
Her father, who discovered her body with police, said: "Eleven was her favourite number.
"She loved butterflies, she loved rainbows, she loved nature, and that's what represents. She loved cats, also."
Female jogger brutally raped, murdered and set on fire while running in US woods
Stone - Yahoo7 News on August 9, 2016, 11:31 am
The 30-year-old was running in a secluded
section of the park even after her father warned her to
not go run on the path without him.
COMMENTS (1/5/17): I've been holding on to these reports for a while, but it very much appears that the two abduction/murders, one murder, three disappearances/abductions, and even the abduction that ended in what would normally never happen, a release, are connected to a perpetrator either working alone or with at least one accomplice. The Chillicothe, Ohio murders are looking more and more like "cluster slayings" ... connected in time and place, but not related. Of course as more evidence comes to light that assessment may change again. It is much less likely the jogger murders/abductions are cluster killings, linked together only by coincidence ... especially now that three more cases have emerged since last month. This makes the total number or victims thus far, potentially, as seven, with three dead, three missing, and one of the seven surviving (Sherri Papini). If the number of victims ends up equalling those of Richard Speck, and since one already escaped, that leaves another two women who may disappear from the area. It would also mean the three missing women are dead. Still, six murders with a seventh escaping instead of eight murders with a ninth escaping to testify is close enough. Unlike the regional slayings that occurred in 2008 and 2009, many which seemed connected but were apparently "clusters," there may be two sets of serial killings, one set from 2015 and the other set from 2016 (and still ongoing), that have somehow been influenced over a span of 49 and 50 years by the Speck murders.
The Vanishing Women: Does a Small Ohio Town Have a Serial Killer on the Loose? - July 16, 2016.
COMMENTS (8/17/16): Despite the title above, it is now unlikely that all six women were slain by the same killer. Especially since a local Chillicothe, Ohio man, Jason McCrary, was apprehended in the death of Timberly Clayton, tried for her murder, and found guilty on July 15, 2016. He is not a suspect in the other three deaths and two disappearances.
In addition, one of the three deaths, that of Shasta Himelrick, has been ruled a suicide.
Even so, there remain four Ohio women who might have been killed by the same person ... someone theoretically still on the loose. In the nearby community of Sandusky, Ohio, 147 miles away, the murder of Heather Bogle, 28, remains unsolved, despite the arrest of several possible suspects earlier this year. That could make the total five.
However, as this system has an uncanny habit 10% of the time of being either a year early or a year late, the recent jogger murders, three thus far, look much more like a "Richard Speck sex slayings repeat" from 1966 than the murdered and missing women of Chillicothe and Sandusky.
THE CHILLICOTHE SERIAL KILLER ... why wasn't I alerted?
|Two reported suspects in the
Chillicothe cases, Ernest J. Moore and Neal Falls, likely
not connected, say police; task
force continues investigations of murdered and missing
In September, Ernest J. Moore, 39, turned himself in and was charged in connection with an incident in which a man seeking illegal drugs in Chillicothe was abducted and tortured. While hes not been linked to the deaths or disappearances, police have said Moore was active in the area drug trade and prostitution. He has pleaded not guilty.
Michael Throne, Editor 4:18 p.m. EDT October 10, 2015
CHILLICOTHE Seemingly far away from the national spotlight now, the Ross County Missing Persons Task Force continues its work.
For the investigators who are seeking clues on two women who remain missing, and four who have died since May 2014, the real work is really just beginning, according to Chief Deputy T.J. Hollis, who heads the task force. "We're not getting as many tips as we were before, that's true," Hollis said in an interview Friday. "But that allows us to analyze the tips we have, look for the substance in them and follow up on as many leads as we can."
The tip line was buzzing just a few months ago as outside interest in the missing women cases was at its apex. While it might seem as if interest in the missing women cases has dwindled, Hollis said local and federal investigators continue to analyze clues and tips each week. "When there aren't any new storylines, maybe it's not as emergent (for outsiders)," he said. "But we have two families who still do not know (where their loved ones are) and there are still other families who don't know how their loved one died. All of those families need to know what happened ... and so do we."
Two of the women who have gone missing since May 2014 remain missing Wanda Lemons and Charlotte Trego. Oct. 2 marked one year since Lemons was last seen by her mother. "When the national media was focused on the missing women, it seemed like we got a lot of tips on Wanda, but it's leveled off now," Hollis said. "There's been nothing of substance, other than what we already know."
Investigators continue to wait for more tips, whether they be from the street or from any of the ways to contact the task force. And, Hollis said, that means also waiting on long-anticipated toxicology results from Tiffany Sayre, whose body was found July 27 in Highland County. "I know many people are anxiously awaiting those results and it's been frustrating for them to have to wait, but it's also important for the results to be as accurate as they can be and, in order to achieve that, we're making sure the tests are as accurate as possible," he said.
After those results come back, Hollis said, they will likely be sent to the National Forensic Science Technology Center for further analysis. "We're not sure that they will find anything that will add to what we'll know, but we don't want to leave anything to chance," he said.

(CNN)Word gets around in a small town, when six young women go missing in little more than a year. One by one, four of them have turned up dead in and around Chillicothe, Ohio, sending chilly rumors of a serial killer drifting through the city of 21,000 people.
But police say they aren't convinced that one person is behind the deaths. "The investigation so far has not produced any evidence that the missing females and deceased females (are) tied to any one person," said Lt. Mike Preston of the Ross County Sheriff's Department.
But some common threads are making the serial killer theory stick with locals. The women went to some of the same places and knew some of the same people, a prosecutor has said. But the big one is that all four of the dead women were found in or near bodies of water. One was wrapped in a sheet. Another had been shot in the head.
Another similarity: hard knocks. "The investigation has lead us to information that some of the females were battling a heroin addiction and they were prostituting themselves to fund their heroin addiction," Preston said. Heroin has become more available in some areas of Ohio, according to a state government analysis. Some of the women reportedly knew each other from having attended the same drug rehab center.
Here is a list of the six missing women, starting with the first, who disappeared in May 2014.
Charlotte Trego, 27
When she went missing: May 3, 2014
Status: Still missing
Her mother reported Charlotte Trego missing to police after not having seen her for two weeks, police said. She said her daughter was addicted to heroin. Trego has a Playboy bunny tattooed on her right arm along with the name "Chloe." The name "James" is tattooed above her right breast, according to a missing persons ad posted on a Facebook page dedicated to finding her.
Tameka Lynch, 30
When she went missing: May 2014
A few days after Trego disappeared, Tameka Lynch went missing, Chillicothe police said. A year later, on May 24, 2015, four kayakers discovered a woman's body -- later identified as Lynch -- lying on a sandbar in Paint Creek, according to the Ross County Sheriff's Office. Her death was ruled a drug overdose, police told WSYX.
Wanda Lemons, 37
When she went missing: November 4, 2014
Status: Still missing
Her mother had not heard from Wanda Lemons for two months when she decided it was time to report her as missing, police said. It was common not to hear from the mother of five for long periods, but when she didn't call on important holidays, her mother thought something was awry. A friend said he saw Lemons on November 3, 2014, according to a Facebook page dedicated to finding her. He heard she was leaving for Texas with a truck driver. Lemons had made contact with her adult daughter via text message and posted to Facebook on November 5.
Shasta Himelrick, 20
When she went missing: December 26, 2014
Shasta Himelrick was expecting a baby when she went missing the day after Christmas last year. A text message in the early hours was one of her last signs of life, and shortly afterward, a surveillance camera captured her on video, according to police. Later, Himelrick's car was found abandoned. "She took Christmas Day to tell everybody she was pregnant," her cousin Christopher Wallingford told CNN affiliate WBNS. "She was so happy, and I just want everybody to know she was a good woman."
On January 2, she was found dead in the Scioto River, according to police. The Ross County coroner found cocaine and oxycodone -- a narcotic painkiller -- in her system and ruled her death suicide by drowning.
Tiffany Sayre, 26
When she went missing: May 11, 2015
Tiffany Sayre's body was found on June 20, wrapped in a sheet alongside a creek bed not far from where Lynch's body had been found four weeks earlier. Sayre was a mother of two, and she also reportedly struggled with drug addiction. She recorded a cell phone video to her family thanking them for their support in her attempt to recover from it, CNN affiliate WCMH reported.
The night she was last heard from, a friend said, Sayre was visiting men at a hotel room, according to a Facebook page dedicated to finding her. Another friend reportedly told police that Sayre had visited the apartment of her late boyfriend, which had been broken into.
Timberly Claytor, 38
Found dead: May 29, 2015
Timberly Claytor, a mother of five, was found dead with three gunshot wounds to her head late last month, CNN affiliate WBNS reported. An old friend, Marcia Pummel, said Claytor confided to her that she was addicted to heroin. Pummel felt the need to pass that on. "I think more people need to talk about it," she said. "There's a stigma. Nobody will talk about it." Pummel said she lost her nephew to a heroin overdose last year.
Call for tips
Though police still don't necessarily believe that a single person is responsible for all of the women's fates, they have printed the women's faces on a flier and distributed it throughout Chillicothe. They hope that someone will give them key tips to help them solve all the cases.
The Sheriff's Office and police request that anyone with information on the missing and slain women contact the Task Force Hotline at 740-774-FIND (740-774-3463) or email Findme@RossSheriff.com
Jun 24, 2015
For years, Chillicothe, Ohio, was known as just another notch on the rust belt, afflicted by the same old problems of drugs, poverty and unemployment. If the town ever made national news, it was because a presidential candidate stopped by vowing to fix things, only for those promises to evaporate after Election Day.
But in the past couple of months, Chillicothe has crept back into headlines for something other than a stump speech. Something much darker. Something evil. Chillicothe is no longer just another Rust Belt town. Now it's the city where women go missing and wash up dead.
In little over a year, at least six women have disappeared from the town of 21,000. Four of their bodies have been found, most dumped in creeks or streams flowing away from the city. The women have similar stories. Most were hooked on drugs, and many moonlighted as prostitutes to fund their addictions, police say. Some of them even knew one another.
The similarities between the victims and the crime scenes has Chillicothe terrified that a serial killer is on the loose. Local police, several county sheriffs' offices and state investigators have banded together to solve the spiraling murder mystery.
Even FBI analysts are assisting with the investigation, busy compiling a profile of a possible serial killer. "I don't want to come out and say 'yes, we have a serial killer' but it's a small community that we live in . . . and the number of females who have come up missing, and then the bodies that we've found, that's quite a bit for our community," Staff Lt. Mike Preston of the Ross County Sheriff's Department told The Washington Post. "The community is starting to get concerned," he said. "Everyone just wants answers."
In the absence of answers and arrests citizens are getting scared. The fear that a serial killer is stalking prostitutes swirls around this city like the winds off Lake Erie. "Obviously there has to be something going on," said Jessica Sayre, whose older sister, Tiffany, was the latest victim. Her body was found in a drainage pipe on Saturday after she had been missing for more than a month. "Apparently my sister was the next target," Jessica Sayre said.
The women began disappearing a year ago from Chillicothe, about an hour south of Columbus. Ohio's first capital more than 200 years ago a title still boasted on city signs Chillicothe has fallen far. "We are battling a problem with heroin in our community," Preston said. Prostitution is on the rise as well.
Charlotte Trego was the first to vanish. In her late 20s with wavy brown hair and glasses, the mother of two had fallen on hard times. "She started taking pain pills and graduated to heroin," according to the Columbus Dispatch. In the spring of 2014, Trego told her mother that she was ready to get clean. Her mom found a rehab center. But then Trego was evicted by her roommate, according to the Chillicothe Gazette. She was last seen on May 3, 2014. It was as if Chillicothe's increasingly dangerous streets simply swallowed her whole.
That same day, a friend of Trego's, Tameka Lynch, also vanished. Like Trego, Lynch had drug problems. "She used and she kind of was struggling, especially after she was diagnosed with lupus," Lynch's cousin, Chasity Lett, told Huffington Post. "Once that happened and she lost her place, it kind of triggered the whole drug thing." Lynch, a 30-year-old mother of three, financed her deepening addiction by selling her body, Huffington Post reported, citing Chillicothe police and a local prostitute.
Lynch was the first of "Chillicothe's missing women" as the six have been called to be found. On May 24, three weeks after her disappearance, a kayaker spotted Lynch's body on a sandbar in Paint Creek outside of town. The Ross County coroner's office determined she died of a multiple-drug overdose. But Lynch was afraid of the water, her mother told the Dispatch. "Somebody needs to pay for this," Angela Robinson said, speculating that her daughter had been murdered. "She was already dead when she was put in the water," she told Huffington Post.
In the year since, four more women have vanished. Three of them have come home in coffins.
On Nov. 3, 2014, six months after Trego and Lynch disappeared, another woman went missing, Wanda Lemons a 37-year-old mother of five. "She just disappeared out of thin air," her daughter, Megan Hodges, told the Huffington Post. "I just want them to find out what happened to her. I think her disappearance might be related to sex trafficking, but if it were drugs I don't think it would be related," Hodges added.
Two months later, Shasta Himelrick was found dead floating in the Scioto River outside of Chillicothe. In December, she had gleefully told friends that she was "eating for two," according to the Chillicothe Gazette. But on Christmas Day, the pregnant 20-year-old blond had received a text message while visiting her grandmother. Himelrick left, promising to return, but never did.
A Chillicothe gas station recorded her ducking inside. Hours later, her abandoned car was found on a bridge south of town. The doors were open, the tank was empty, and the battery was dead. Himelrick's body was fished from the water eight days later. The coroner ruled the death a suicide but Himelrick's friends are convinced it was murder.
Tiffany Sayre went missing under similar circumstances. It was around midnight on May 11 and Sayre and friend Jessie Sanford were working at a local motel. "She was doing business at the Chillicothe Inn," Sanford told the Huffington Post. "She left to run to her grandmother's house and was going to go back to the hotel to meet the same people so she could make some more money. I don't know what happened. I think somebody took her."
Like the other women, Sayre had gotten involved in drugs and prostitution, according to police and family members. Kenneth Buell, Sayre's ex-boyfriend and the father of their two children, told The Washington Post that the couple had done heroin and crack cocaine together. "For a couple of years we were both on drugs," he said. Buell said he got clean a year ago, but Sayre couldn't and the couple broke up. "She couldn't kick it," he said. "It just had a hold of her."
Jessica Sayre said her sister had met another man and tried to go straight. But when her new boyfriend died in April from a blood clot, Tiffany went back to drugs and the vices that funded her addiction. "It hit my sister really hard. She really loved him," Jessica Sayre said. "They had planned on moving, going to this other place, actually getting married and having a life together. I think she did the drugs a little more to help with the pain. She didn't want to be in her right mind because she didn't feel like it was the right thing. The night she apparently went missing, she talked about how she wanted to get her life straight and go clean," Sayre added. "My sister did these things that we did not approve of to get money for drugs, because we didn't want to be the source of money for those types of things. She did what she had to do."
"Did she have a problem? Yes, everybody's got problems," Buell said. "Hers got a hold of her and didn't let go."
Sayre's family put out missing person flyers and held candlelight vigils, but heard nothing. While they were waiting, another woman, Timberly Clayton, was found dead: shot in the head three times and left in a ditch near another creek. (Authorities have named a prime in the killing but have not yet charged him with the crime.)
Finally, last Saturday, Sayre became the last victim in the string of deadly disappearances. A couple out for a Saturday evening walk through a nature preserve south of Chillicothe spotted something white at the edge of a drainage pipe running underneath the road. Sayre's naked body had been wrapped in a bed sheet and hidden inside the culvert with a crown of duct tape around her strawberry blond hair. "She's wrapped up in a blanket and you can see her breasts, her stomach, duct tape, a white blanket," the female passerby told a 911 dispatcher.
"We were hoping that she was still alive," Jessica Sayre said. "You're wishing and hoping and then all of a sudden you get a phone call saying that your loved one has been found, but not the way you wanted to find her."
"She got murdered," Buell said more bluntly. "Somebody took her away and it was intentional."
Authorities ruled Sayre's death a homicide. The grisly discovery helped launch the task force, which now includes more than a dozen members, including the FBI analysts, according to Lt. Preston. The task force is investigating the cases of all six women, even those formerly considered suicides. According to media reports, the investigation could also expand to at least three other women who went missing from nearby Portsmouth and Columbus.
A serial killer is a possibility, Preston admitted. He said officials were studying the apparent pattern to the dumping of the bodies along waterways outside the city. "This wasn't just a simple overdose," Jessica Sayre said of her sister's death. "They could have called the police. We didn't have to find her like this." The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is analyzing the forensics found at the scene for traces of a suspect, Preston said. He added that the task force had received more than 100 tips in just a few days, but is still searching for a witness. "A lot of those people may be afraid to come forward," he said. "If they are afraid they can let us know anonymously. We just want the information. Somebody saw something."
But as authorities delve into the growing number of deaths and disappearances, some locals say the police are part of the problem. "The day I reported her missing was very upsetting to me," Trego's mother, Yvonne Boggs, told the Huffington Post. "The cop said, 'Women like your daughter take off because they don't want to be bothered.' It was like they looked into it up to a certain point and then quit looking. The police didn't take it serious and just blew me off," Lynch's mother, Angela Robinson, told the same Web site.
Sayre's family said they had also been kept in the dark. Buell even blamed the authorities. Both he and Jessica Sayre said police and authorities long ago abandoned Chillicothe. "It's not safe," he said. "The last five, six seven years it's gone to hell. You can't walk around by yourself, especially females. I feel like Chillicothe has turned for the worst," Jessica Sayre said. "Now they are going to start picking up the pieces, but this town has really gone down with drugs. It's got pretty bad."
She said that despite the discovery of her sister's body, her family would continue to hold vigils for Trego and Lemons. "It's been a nightmare for us," she said of Tiffany's death. "Nothing is going to bring her back, but we are going to get justice. And we are going to pray for these two other women who are missing in Chillicothe. This town has beauty," she said. "This town can come together."
Timberly Claytor's body was found along Trego Creek Road
Tameka Lynch found dead after being missing, May 24, 2014
Megan Lancaster, 25, missing since April 3, 2013
Related? Body of Heather Bogle, 28, of Clyde, OH, found in trunk of car April 11, 2015 ... ruled as a homicide
COMMENTS (10/19/15): This is most likely the predicted event(s). I projected that July 2015 would either see a mass murder of at least 8 young women (similar to the Richard Speck sex slayings of July 1966) occur or else a young woman's murder would occur that would be linked to a number of other recent murders and a serial killer on the loose would be suspected. In Chillicothe, Ohio, it appears that the latter scenario developed with the discovery on June 20, 2015, of the body of Tiffany Sayre, 26, near a drainage pipe off the road by a couple walking. "Sayre's naked body had been wrapped in a bed sheet and hidden inside the culvert with a crown of duct tape around her strawberry blond hair." The cause of death has yet to be determined at this writing.
But this is the case that has police now wondering if a serial killer is on the loose in Ohio; something locals have been saying since a missing young woman, Shasta Himelrick, 20, was found dead floating in the Scioto River on January 2, 2015. At that time the case consisted of the disappearance of two Chillicothe women, Charlotte Trego, 27, and Wanda Lemons, 37 (both still missing) and the deaths of two others, Tameka Lynch, 30 (May 24, 2014) and Himelrick. Those two deaths were initially determined to be due to a drug overdose (Lynch) and suicide (Himelrick), but now are being reevaluated in light of Sayre's murder. A lull of nearly five months followed the discovery of Himelrick's body, until May 29, 2015, when police found Timberly Claytor, 38, murdered by multiple gunshot wounds to the head and then the Sayre murder (cause of death yet to be released) came to light on June 20.
Although the total thus far is six possible victims (two still missing), the Washington Post report states "the investigation could also expand to at least three other women who went missing from nearby Portsmouth and Columbus." That would be a total of nine if true. For the three others there is sketchy information, but they are Jayme Bowen, 23, Megan Lancaster, 25, and Holly Logan, 29.
A possible suspect in the disappearances and murders, Ernest "Dollar Bill" Moore, 39, turned himself in on an unrelated charge in September. However, as the October 14 update indicates, police are beginning to rule out any link. Also, a serial murder and missing persons investigation is now underway with police asking for clues and tips as reported on October 10. With nearly five months passing between the discovery of missing person Shasta Himelrick's body on January 2 and the discovery of Timberly Claytor's murder on May 29 (Claytor was the only victim who was not previously reported missing), what might happen a similar period of time after the discovery of Tiffany Sayre's body? That would take us to approximately November 18, 2015 ... about a month from today. If he is not already in custody or dead, there is a serial killer at large who may well strike again.
In any event, the date Tiffany Sayre's body was discovered, June 20, 2015, is close enough to the July 2015 vector, and since it was the case that has rendered an ongoing investigation and search for a potential serial killer by Ohio authorities and the FBI, I consider this to be a PREDICTION FULFILLED and also a potential PREDICTION IN PROGRESS.
NO, I have not been following these disappearances and deaths since May 24, 2014 ... or even since June 20, 2015. I knew nothing about these cases until October 1, 2015, when I stumbled on the news articles after conducting a Google news search. No one contacted me by email or otherwise and told me about this. I understand that this became national and international news in late June, reported by every major news service and CNN included. JUNE was a difficult month for me; I had to move into an apartment (which, along with other issues, kept me very busy) and I had no internet for over a week. That's why I missed this case being reported. I would have appreciated it if a viewer to my site had emailed me about it or else posted about it on my forum or blog, or shared it with me on Twitter. I may have been a little late reading an email, share, or a post in June or early July ... but certainly nowhere as late as October 1. I have had no TV service at all since April nor can afford any ... so without internet I don't know what the hell is going on. Just a warning in case something else is happening right now that I predicted and may be missing the reports.
THIS IS A SECOND CASE I am following from the Ontario/Toronto/Niagara Falls (US & Canadian sides) area. It may (or may not) have anything to do with this prediction, but is nevertheless linked to another older prediction concerning a young US woman, Loretta Jo Gates, found dismembered in the Niagara River back in 2012. The case drew international attention and has again since discovery of another body in the area this year. On November 27, 2012, I predicted more such dismemberment cases would be found in the region in 2013 and 2014. So far, there have been two such cases: Kasandra Bolduc, 22, in 2013 and one this year (one year late) in 2015, Terri Lynn Bills. Two of three (Gates and Bills) are being connected to a possible serial killer. No connection has yet been made with Bolduc, but I believe there should be a link made.

Gomer Pyle's Revenge from the film, Full Metal Jacket .. "what's your major malfunction, Numbnuts?"
NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/14 -- Base 7 dating: August 2015. DESCRIPTION: 12/5/15: It is in the public interest that this prediction be published here ... even if it is doomed to fail. There are certain events that reach what I call a "base 7 threshhold." Essentially, that means that similar events occur so often, and on a yearly basis over such a long period of time, that predicting the "next one" is useless. Mass shootings in public places such as schools, malls, theaters, health spas, and other places have now become a common occurrence. The only such event that would possibly surprise us in 2015 would be if a there were NO mass shootings for the entire year ... OR ELSE an event very similar to the Charles Whitman sniper killings of August 1966.
This base 7 prediction establishes that a sniper may strike, most likely at a university. Something about this case will stand out from other such cases; perhaps, like Charles Whitman, he will be shooting from a high altitude or, like the Washington DC snipers, he will shoot at people in a city at random from a car over a period of weeks. If the mass sex slaying occurs in July that is reminiscent of the Richard Speck student nurse murders, it is almost certain that a Charles Whitman type sniping event will follow in August.
Worst mass shooting in U.S. history
By Ralph Ellis, Ashley Fantz, Faith Karimi and Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN
Updated 2344 GMT (0744 HKT) June 12, 2016
Orlando, Florida (CNN) An American-born man who'd pledged allegiance to ISIS gunned down 50 people early Sunday at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the deadliest mass shooting in the United States and the nation's worst terror attack since 9/11, authorities said.
Mateen carried an assault rifle and a pistol into the packed Pulse club about 2 a.m. Sunday and started shooting, killing 50 people and wounding at least 53, police said.
After a standoff of about three hours, while people trapped inside the club desperately called and messaged friends and relatives, police crashed into the building with an armored vehicle and stun grenades and killed Mateen. "It appears he was organized and well-prepared," Orlando Police Chief John Mina said early Sunday. Authorities said they haven't found any accomplices.
'An act of hate'
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack on jihadi forums, but ISIS sympathizers have reacted by praising the attack on pro-Islamic State forums. "We know enough to say this was an act of terror and act of hate," President Obama said in an address to the nation from the White House. While the violence could have hit any American community, "This is an especially heartbreaking day for our friends who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender," he said.
Omar Mir Seddique Mateen was born in 1986 in New York. Most recently he lived in Fort Pierce, about 120 miles southeast of Orlando. Fearing explosives, police evacuated about 200 people from the apartment complex where he lived while they looked through his residence for evidence. He was married in 2009 to a woman originally from Uzbekistan, according to the marriage license, but he filed documents to end the marriage in 2011. Mateen had worked since 2007 as a security officer at G4S Secure Solutions, one of the world's largest private security companies.
Mateen's parents, who are from Afghanistan, said he'd expressed outrage after seeing two men kiss in Miami, but they didn't consider him particularly religious and didn't know of any connection he had to ISIS.
A message posted in Arabic on a dark web site associated with the ISIS news agency Amaq said "the armed attack that targeted a gay night club in the city of Orlando in the American state of Florida and that bore more than a 100 killed and wounded was carried out by an Islamic state fighter."
But CNN's Salma Abdulaziz, who translated the message and closely monitors ISIS messaging, cautioned about taking the message at face value. She said the language is inconsistent with previous ISIS announcements and that the Arabic word for gay was used rather than an epithet normally used by ISIS. Also, there was no claim that the attack was directed, just an after-the-fact claim the gunman was an ISIS fighter, she said.
At a Sunday afternoon news briefing, FBI Assistant Special Agent Ronald Hopper said the agency was aware of Mateen. The FBI interviewed him in 2013 and 2014 after he expressed sympathy for a suicide bomber, Hopper said. "Those interviews turned out to be inconclusive, so there was nothing to keep the investigation going," Hopper said. Mateen was not under investigation at the time of Sunday's shooting and was not under surveillance, Hopper said.
In the past two weeks Mateen legally purchased a Glock pistol and a long gun, ATF Assistant Special Agent in Charge Trevor Velinor told reporters. It's not known if those weapons were used in the attack. "He is not a prohibited person. They can legally walk into a gun dealership and acquire and purchase firearms. He did so. And he did so within the last week or so," Velinor said.
Scene inside the club
Pulse describes itself as "the hottest gay bar" in the heart of Orlando. Hours before the shooting, the club urged partygoers to attend its "Latin flavor" event Saturday night. The club is a vast, open space that was hosting more than 300 patrons late Saturday and into Sunday morning.
People inside the cavernous nightclub described a scene of panic made more confusing by the loud music and darkness. "At first it sounded like it was part of the show because there was an event going on and we were all having a good time," clubgoer Andy Moss said. "But once people started screaming and shots just keep ringing out, you know that it's not a show anymore."
Christopher Hansen said he was getting a drink at the bar about 2 a.m. when he "just saw bodies going down." He heard gunshots, "just one after another after another." The gunshots went on for so long that the shooting "could have lasted a whole song," he said. When the shots erupted, Hansen hit the ground, crawling on his elbows and knees, before he spotted a man who had been shot. "I took my bandana off and shoved it in the hole in his back," Hansen said, adding that he saw another woman who appeared to be shot in the arm.
Survivors provided CNN with dramatic accounts of how they avoided death. One person hiding in the bathroom covered herself with bodies to protect herself. Some entertainers hid in a dressing room when the shooting started and escaped the building by crawling out when police removed the air conditioning unit. One of the bartenders said she hid under the glass bar. Police came in and said, "If you are alive, raise your hand." Then police got her and others out.
After the initial shooting, police surrounded the club while Mateen was inside with clubgoers hiding in bathrooms and other parts of the building. People inside the club were communicating on their phones with law enforcement from that time until around 5 a.m., when authorities used an armored vehicle to break down the door of the building.
Omar Mateen's wife, Noor Zahi Salman, may be charged with conspiracy in murders
Hospital swamped with victims
Thirty-nine people and Mateen were pronounced dead at the scene, with two bodies found in the parking lot, Mayor Buddy Dyer said. Eleven people were taken to hospitals and pronounced dead there, he said.
The City of Orlando is posting names of the deceased on a website after next of kin are notified. The youngest person among the first seven named, Luis Omar Ocasio-Capo, was 20 years old.
Forty-three of the wounded people were patients on Sunday afternoon at Orlando Regional Medical Center, a hospital spokesperson said, with 26 operations being performed.
Before Sunday, the deadliest shootings in U.S. history were at Virginia Tech in 2007 and Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012, with 32 and 27 killed. Fourteen people were killed December 2 in an attack in San Berardino, California.
National media attention was already focused on Orlando over the weekend because of Friday night's fatal shooting of Christina Grimmie while she signed autographs after a show. She was an up-and-coming singer who had appeared on NBC's "The Voice." Her shooter then killed himself. The Pulse shooting happened only a few miles from the Plaza Live theater, where Grimmie was killed.
Dyer, the mayor, called for the city to come together. "We need to support each other. We need to love each other. And we will not be defined by a hateful shooter," he said.
President Obama called for flags to be lowered to half staff and Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for a moment of silence across the nation at 6 p.m. Sunday. States of emergency were declared for the city of Orlando and for Orange County.
Santa Monica arrest
Also on Sunday, authorities in West Hollywood, California, took a suspect into custody after discovering an arsenal in his car that included explosive powder, assault weapons and a camouflage outfit, CNN affiliate KABC reported, citing unnamed authorities. The suspect told authorities he was there for the Los Angeles Pride festival, which is underway this weekend. There was no indication the arrest was related to the Orlando attack.
Eleven Orlando police officers and three sheriff's deputies who exchanged gunfire with the suspect will be temporarily relieved of duty pending an investigation.
One officer suffered an eye injury when a bullet struck his Kevlar helmet, said Danny Banks, special agent in charge of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Orlando bureau. The helmet saved the officer's life, Banks said.
'This is a hate crime'
The attacks were denounced on Sunday by numerous groups, including the Vatican, Afghan President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "This is a hate crime, plain and simple," CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said. "We condemn it in the strongest possible terms."
Nadine Smith of Equality Florida said groups are planning vigils around the nation. "It has just been a devastating day but people are starting to rally," she said.
Barbara Poma, owner of the Orlando nightclub Pulse, released the following statement on Sunday: "Like everyone in the country, I am devastated about the horrific events that have taken place today. Pulse, and the men and women who work there, have been my family for nearly 15 years. From the beginning, Pulse has served as a place of love and acceptance for the LGBTQ community. I want to express my profound sadness and condolences to all who have lost loved ones. Please know that my grief and heart are with you."
COMMENTS (6/27/16): Ten months late ... but this is not an "almost" or "similar" or "close" or "something like it." This was the worst mass shooting in U.S. history ... 50 dead. If two events that are quite the same occur, I will usually count both. But the Charleston shootings by Dylann Storm in June of last year do not even come close to this. I have deleted that and expunged it as a prediction fulfilled. It now exists only as a news link. This event in Orlando is the only one that could possibly meet the standards of a PREDICTION FULFILLED. But I warn you ... it also sets a new precedent and also a new kind of crime: a crossover domestic mass murder with elements of foreign terrorism. As long as there is an ISIS (or anything similar), this could happen again and again ... and with higher casualties, even if the perp, in the end, is working alone and for unrelated reasons.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 1/10/15 -- I must be entirely frank: from a base 7 perspective, there was absolutely nothing on the radar for a terrorist attack to occur in Paris this month! Nothing! That is why there is no prediction for such an event ... there is no base 7 precedent on this year's timeline. I have predicted that there will be terror attacks in Paris several times in the past, but none of these datings saw such events or, in a few cases, planned terror attacks were thwarted by police before they could happen.
However, there are base 7 precedents for terror attacks in Athens and in London for this year. There was a terrorist bombing in Athens forty-two (6 x 7) years ago in August 1973. There was also a bombing in London the following month ... in September 1973. In addition, a London cartoonist was shot in the face by a lone terrorist twenty-eight (4 x 7) years ago in July 1987. These influences probably resulted in the eventual terrorist attack against the French cartoonists of the Charlie Hebdoe magazine. But there would have been no way to identify the month (January rather than July, August or September), nor any way to have anticipated the country involved (France in this case). The best one could have done is to have predicted a terror attack somewhere, anywhere in Europe, possibly .. and this would have been a stretch ... involving a cartoonist or group of cartoonists as victims. Of course the dating would have been July-September 2015, not January 2015.
Terrorist attacks are the most difficult events to predict as the element of surprise virtually negates the likelihood that anniversary dates will be chosen or that the action will somehow conform with the base 7 system. Conformation is possible, but not if the terrorists are aware of it!
In any event, make of this what you will ... if it helps in any way. But be wary of a possible bombing attack in Athens around August 2015. And do not be limited by the possibility of a bombing, it may take any form!
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 2/28/15 -- Base 7 dating: August 2015. Base 7 precedent: bombing of railway station in Bologna, Italy kills at least 75 people thirty-five (5 x 7) years ago on August 2, 1980. Yeah, this stuff has been going on a long, long time. Even in the 50s and 60s. Terrorism is nothing new. Neither is hostage-taking or killing of hostages. We keep going round and round, but each round does get worse.

The result may well be a bloody annexation of Georgia into a resurrected Soviet Empire that will likely simply go on being called the Russian Federation.
