In 2004 Louwana Miller appeared on the Montel Williams show in hopes that psychic Sylvia Browne would help her locate her missing daughter, Amanda Berry.
"She's not alive, honey," Browne told Miller on the show. "Your daughter's not the kind who wouldn't call."
Louwana Miller died a year later from heart failure or perhaps heart break believing that her daughter was dead. Louwana spent three years searching for her daughter and the stress and emotional turmoil took a toll on her mind, body and soul.
On Monday, Berry was found alive after she broke free from a home in Cleveland where she says she has been kept a prisoner for the past decade.
In 2003 Browne famously told the parents of of missing teen Shawn Hornbeck that their son was dead, and his body could be found somewhere near "two jagged boulders," according to her premonition. Furthermore, according to Browne, Hornbeck was kidnapped by a very tall, “dark-skinned man, he wasn’t Black, more like Hispanic,” who wore dreadlocks.
Sylvia is a carnival fortune teller and not a very good one. She's predatory grief vulture. Her narcissistic personality enables her to look into the face of a bereaved or desperate person seeking answers about their dead or missing relative and spin a story to enrich and aggrandize herself.
