Thanks for the reply.
With respect, you seem to be asking all of the questions that I need answering!
If I had that amount of information available to me, I wouldn't have needed to enlist the help of ATS.
that is known about Miss Souchon's experience I have supplied in my OP. What I was hoping for in this thread was that by
repeating the known facts, they might have jogged someone's memory of the original report, or even of a follow-up article.
I have been attempting research on the web using all relevant info (and this bears out the fact that this case may be dead in the water), and have
discovered, much to my annoyance, that it's my original post that comes up first!
What's IMO mean?
...mind control experiment victim?
IMO means exactly what it says on the tin. I will be making absolutely no assumptions until I have further evidence and information. Even then, a
conclusion may well be beyond reach; sometimes strange events just happen, and are never solved.
As I've said previously, I am open to the distinct possibilty that this may prove to be a simple case of assault and will be satisfied, though no
less saddened for the victim, if that is the result.
However, the circumstances of what must have been a terrifying sequence of events for Ms Souchon do, IMO
, suggest to this fortean that whatever
happened to her may have been anomalous.
The search party finding her horse having been killed violently alone indicates we are not dealing with simple pranksters.
Her other horse being found paralyzed with fear also points towards an intense, and again possibly unusual, happening. Though no expert I've ridden
horses and therefore know they spook easily. For one to be immobilized by terror would be very unusual.
The "zombie-like" state Ms Souchon was found in also suggests she had been through an immensly traumatic experience, one that literally caused her
mind to turn in on itsself. That, above all, makes me want to know what happened, because I feel both sympathy for her and angry at whatever assaulted
The story was also originaly deemed strange enough to be reported in the Sunday Express in 1978. It was also the subject of another article in the
Fortean Times, again in 1978, by the author Paul Pinn.
I have been incontact with Mr Pinn, and he has very graciously supplied me with all of the contact detail used back in the '70's.
As to the rest of your questions; I simply can't answer them with any satsfaction, yet.
Frustrating, isn't it?
What is the investigating police body, and what is their conclusion?
As far as I know, the case was handled by the Aveyron District Gendarmerie in Rodez. Their conclusion, if any, is what I'm after.
Are you a relative, why are you inquiring?
No. And see above.
What was her job?
What is her condition NOW?
Have you spoken with her?
Haven't a clue about her employment.
As to Ms Souchon's current state of health, indeed even if she is still with us, is again a matter of research. If she is still alive, then she will
be around 60 years of age. Any approach I make, to her or her family, will be done with respect. Whatever she went through is still bound to be a
Hope this helps.
