Sylvia Browne Again Addresses Amanda Berry Prediction On Faceboook

Sylvia Browne told Amanda Berry‘s mother that the missing Cleveland girl was dead, and it appears a grieving Louwana Miller went to her grave, never learning that her daughter was indeed living and being held captive all the years she was gone.

After Amanda Berry was found alive and years after the death of her mother — attributed in part to Miller’s distress over Berry’s abduction — Sylvia Browne came under fire for her smug insistence back in 2004 that Amanda was murdered.

That year, Sylvia Browne met Louwana Miller when both women appeared on The Montel Williams Show, where the “psychic” was a frequent guest.

Browne informed Miller that she’d had a vision of Amanda Berry’s murder, telling the frightened and distraught mother who asked if Brown was “ever wrong” in her predictions:

“She’s not alive, honey. Your daughter’s not the kind who wouldn’t call … Only God is right all the time but of course I’m wrong. But after 50 years of doing this work, I’d better be more right than wrong. I always say I hope I’m wrong. When it comes to this, I hope I’m wrong.”

While Browne has long been decried by skeptics as the worst kind of huckster, preying on the grieving in their darkest hours, Miller appears to have taken the prediction to heart — even disposing of Berry’s belongings after the Montel appearance.

Miller later said:

“Please don’t misunderstand me … I still don’t want to believe it. I want to have hope but, after a year and a half, what else is there? It seems like the God-honest truth. My daughter would always call home.”

Two years later, Miller died of pancreatitis at the age of 43.

Last night on Facebook, Sylvia Browne again defended her frightening and untrue prediction to Amanda Berry’s mother back in 2004, saying in a status update:

“As I stated earlier, I am so relieved that Amanda Berry and the other women have been found and are safe with their families. Of course I do feel very bad telling Amanda’s mother on the show that I believed her daughter was not alive, and I’m so so glad that I was wrong. I had a vision of her being held underwater, but I had interpreted it to have a different meaning. She was not being held under water but was being held down.”

In a separate statement, Sylvia Browne wished the victims and families “a peaceful recovery.”

    I would never believe Silvia Browne. All she wants is ur $$$ and fame!!

    I'm actually surprised that she didn't use some silly line like: "I was correct, 100%… The girl we knew is dead, she will never be that girl again. I was just wrong to think that the vision was literal." That's how these people work. Just like organized religion. Anyone can take a vague phrase and it can mean anything they want it to mean. Anyone who has spent time reading the bible can make it say anything from you should kill those who offend you to you should not marry outside your race.

    I think some people have a gift, but its not always correct. My issue with Silvia Brown and others is that they swear they're always right and that's just not correct.

    A lot of these so called "seers" pray on individuals like this mother. People usually turn to them when they feel all else has failed, which is sad.

    Makes me sick that she took away hope from her Family :((.

    So psychics don't even have to be right to be considered psychic? I didn't know "guessing" or "making shit up" was a gift.

  7. Jeannot Houle

    Anyone who makes life decisions based on the words of a "psychic" should really reexamine their belief system.

  8. Christopher Gass

    oh, she had a "vision." we all have visions you fraud. it's called an imagination. now, please do something truly beneficial to humanity and kindly wash your mouth out with a.38.

    A week ago, Amanda Berry broke through a screen door to find freedom for the first time in almost a decade. Everybody in America rejoiced. Everybody except for two people. Ariel Castro and Sylvia Browne both said the same thing: "oh, crap."

    I'm surprised she didn't see this coming, being as she is a purported psychic? The only 'seeing' she can do is the rise in dollars in her account. I doubt if she will make any donations to the family though for the huge error she made!

  11. Joan Cool

    You are so right Dave. They are all charlatans !!!

  12. Kristy Lamey Crow

    This is sad and Fake! I always knew it I am just wondering when everyone else will! O I miss read the situation! really the mother did not live long after I wonder why!

  13. Kristy Lamey Crow

  14. Kristy Lamey Crow

    She should have seen the mom dying soon after being told her daughter died too hmmm!!! But I guess not huh!!!

    In The Word, it speaks loud and clear against medium's. We are to believe and trust in God showing us the way, giving us answers or not. It will all be revealed in heaven. Not saying people can't heal, but it is the Holy Spirit working through us, none of our own doing.
