Manwath is a taluka in #Maharashtra's #Parbhani district. It is located around 500-km from #Mumbai. This obscure place was rocked by a series of 10 gruesome ritualistic murders in the 1970s. These killings were the result of #superstition.

Five girls who were about ten years old, an year-old child and four women in their mid-thirties were murdered between 14 November 1972 and 4 January, 1974. These murders had a similar modus operandi and pattern. They were committed at night. These incidents shocked #Maharashtra
The time and location of the crime,use of women as victims, nature of injuries caused to them, pvt parts of some of the victims being cut to extract blood, the absence of motive for the killings, the attempt to dodge the police and the extreme brutality made the case macabre

We need to talk about male violence - men killing women & children. Too many women & children have already been killed & it’s the start of a new year - Bruna Fonseca, Natalie McNally & Tausha Haight, her mother Gail Earl, & Tausha’s five children -
identified by family and friends as Macie (17), Briley (12), twins Ammon and Sienna (7), & Gavin (4). I can’t tell you whether these men thought it right to kill, but what I can tell you from 27 years of profiling cases is that they thought it was THEIR RIGHT.
We need to talk about this supercharged sense of entitlement and ownership men believe they have over women and children and stop saying it’s ‘senseless’ ‘tragic’ ‘gun violence’ ‘motiveless’ It’s not.

This progress is positive. The killer will most likely be known to Natalie, yes. BUT police saying he is not a risk to other women is utter nonsense. He murdered a woman who was pregnant. Of course he is a risk to other women 🚩 EVERY woman knows this. I really wish ImageImage
Men would stop saying ridiculous things like this & focus on what’s important. Appeal to those who know this man. Someone knows him. Listen to the Community intell. I’m hearing that a former partner was stalking Natalie. Do the house-to house, speak to those who knew Natalie &
those whom she confided in. Speak with her family, friends, check social media etc. There’s lots to do in the star burst of a murder. This man is a public protection risk 🚩 Any man who murders a woman is. Help find him. Perhaps you saw the man with the rucksack?

Can you help find Natalie McNally’s killer? Natalie was 15 weeks pregnant with a baby boy. She was stabbed to death in her home in Lurgan Northern Ireland on Sunday 18 December. This man carrying a rucksack arrived at Silverwood Green near Natalie’s home at 852pm.
He was seen leaving Silverwood Green at 930pm. @PoliceServiceNI are appealing for phone/video footage, CCTV, car dash-cam footage, photos, any information that can help find him. Also, there’s a golf course close to Natalie’s house which leads to the M1 Motorway.
Perhaps you saw the man with the rucksack around this time? Do you recognize his gait in the video? Or maybe you know someone locally who was acting strangely after Natalie’s murder. You can upload info anonymously here… or

On page 325 of "Dr. Mary's Monkey" by Ed Haslam, we learn about an interesting story:

The Sherman-Ferrie-Vary experiments successfully created aggressive cancers in mice and (at Judyth’s suggestion) these new cancers were tested on monkeys.

1/ Image
... They worked, killing the monkeys quickly. But there was a missing link–they needed to know if their cancer cocktail would actually kill a human. It was decided to test their concoction on a prisoner from Louisiana’s Angola State Penitentiary ...

... who had ‘volunteered’ for the experiment . They brought him to the Jackson State Mental Hospital (near Clinton, Lousiana) where he was injected with their new bio-weapon, and died. .

Therapist 🧵: #Narcissistic Fixated Stalking. #Stalking is illegal in almost every country in the world, but that doesn't mean those who are stalked get the help they need. Stalking is on the Increase due to social media, lack of knowledge by law enforcement as to what #illegal
To do with them, their high levels of manipulation & the law not keeping up with current times. Clusters B's are well known for stalking & taking revenge when they don't get what they want from you. Narcissists & psychopaths are even known to kill your pets.
They may contact your employee With outright lies, stalk you both online & offline & accuse you of stalking them. Stalking is something narcissists (and other cluster B's) love to engage in. It gives them power, control & yes, entertainment #dysfunctional

Therapist Tip for your #mentalhealth: How to spot a #narcissist We are in a #narcisstic #psychopathic and #sociopathic epidemic. Look for these 🚩🚩1. Mirroring your interests 🚩 2. Love Bombing you at first. Feels like bliss 🚩3. Early obsession. Go too fast in any relationship
Fall in love with you in first week(s). 🚩4. Feels too good to be true 🚩5. They are idealising you & you can do no wrong. You are perfect for them. This is the 'honeymoon' period 🚩6. Them comes drama out of the blue 🚩 7. They come from a position of "how am I?" #psychology
Wanting others attention 🚩They do not care about how you are or how your day was. Do they ever ask you how you are, how was your day, say "that sounds like a tough day for you", show genuine empathy) Watch for 'false' empathy. Does the conversation always go back to them? #narcs
