A “psychic” in Texas who went to law enforcement authorities and told them that she was sure a local couple had a mass grave full of dismembered bodies of people they’d killed has been ordered to pay nearly $7 million in damages to that couple. Insert the obvious “she should have seen this coming” joke here.
A self-described psychic who triggered a media frenzy when she told authorities a Liberty County couple had a mass grave on their property has been ordered to pay the couple $6.8 million.
A Dallas County judge issued the judgment May 7 against Presley “Rhonda” Gridley, the sole remaining defendant in a lawsuit filed a year ago.
“Whether it will be collectible, we’re going to pursue that,” said Dallas attorney Andrew Sommerman.
He represents plaintiffs Joe Bankston and Gena Charlton in the suit that has concluded, except for efforts to collect the judgment.
The “psychic” didn’t even bother showing up to court in the suit.
