What Were the Odds?

Donate The "psychic" who tipped off a Texas Sheriff to a mass grave turns out to have been blowing smoke.

I think the Sheriff did the right thing by checking it out, and it was quite the sad coincidence that there happened to be blood all over the place. I am glad, though, that the county is going to be in touch with the "psychic".
Craig McNair, head of the county commissioners, expressed frustration with the "havoc" created by the false tip which led dozens of journalists to descend upon the quiet Texas town.

"Whoever this person was who gave this tip we'll be in touch with her and we could hold her responsible for giving a false tip and creating this havoc," he said.
