Indian relatives overseas told the parents of missing Northwestern student Harsha Maddula that they contacted a psychic on their family’s behalf and the word was good about a successful outcome.
“All my family and friends from India, from everywhere, they see me on TV and they say, ‘He’s still alive. Don’t worry,” Prasad Maddula, the youth’s father said.
The psychics got it wrong; terribly wrong.
Harsha Maddula was not alright. His body is believed to be the one pulled from Lake Michigan’s Wilmette Harbor Thursday night, along with Harsha’s cell phone and personal identification according to NBC News.
The family, already overcome with grief that their loved one was missing, has now been subjected to what law enforcement terms “false hope” and all because of a psychic.
