Sylvia Browne, Famous For Inaccurate Predictions, dies at 77
77 year old Sylvia Browne died Wednesday in a San Jose, California hospital. She rose to fame by appearing on the Montel Williams Show many times. She claimed that she could talk to the dead.
Browne had famously announced that Amanda Berry had died after she went missing in 2003. That prediction fell to the floor after Amanda Berry was discovered alive. In May, it was discovered that she was still alive and had been held captive by Ariel Castro.
To sidestep the controversy Browne in a prepared statement said “Only God is right all the time.” Browne claimed to have a psychic success rate between 87-to-90 percent. After a 2010 analysis of the 115 predictions she made on “The Montel Williams Show” by Skeptical Inquirer magazine put her success rate at zero.
A private memorial service is planned.
