Wow this case has been on my mind like no other, so much so I've watched the documentary twice already. I'm surprised I've never come across it
before!?! Especially as I live not far from Mallow, truly BIZARRE!!
I think the great big gaping hole that needs filling with answers are the questions 'Why is there so little background information on these 2 women?
What is that background info? and What has happened since?'
The other questions I have are:
1. How did they get onto the central reservation in the first place? Surely if it was a suicide pact and they'd wanted to be hit by oncoming traffic
they could have done it then instead of getting themselves safely onto the central reservation??
2. Why did the appearance of the Highway Agency's patrol unit, send them into the traffic? I wonder if they would have just carried on and crossed to
the other side when it was safe to do so if there had been no 'interference', obviously the agency didn't know things were going to unfold as they
did, but it does make me wonder...
3. Did Sabina intentionally run in front of the silver polo or was she just trying to get to her sister and in her 'state of mind' didn't even
consider oncoming traffic??
4. Why Ursula was never charged?? They were BOTH trespassing...
Well this has 'got to me' enough to make me dig a little, because most of all I feel compelled to understand the 'WHY??'.
So far I've found the following thread by Tindalos2013, I've only skimmed the first few posts and it's a bit 'out there' but he does have some
interesting info that I need to read through properly and digest. Not having read it all I don't know if I'll be repeating any links from that
The ERIKSSON files
(ETA - You're going to need a very open mind for this thread, a few illogical conclusions but an interesting read nontheless.)
The next link has already been posted in this thread, well worth a quick read through.
Madness in the fastlane
The next link is from a Swedish newspaper (google translate is not great, but you get the gist of it) from the 27/9/08 with very little information
for an article 4 months after the incidents.
In this article their older brother states that the women were being chased by 'maniacs who wanted to gang rape them', doesn't quite fit with the
screams of 'they're trying to steal our organs', and why on earth would she go into a house with 2 strange men if she thought she may be gang
raped??!? Leaves more questions IMO.
He also states they were sports fanatics (translates to 'maniacs' with google translate) which could account for their apparent strength if they were
very fit. There is also the Beserker - Blind rage syndrome', discussed in the 'Madness in the fastlane' thread, that could also account for their
strength. I do feel I'm grasping at straws here but their brother describes them as 'They have always been hyperactive...' and a common misdiagnosis
for the syndrome is ADHD, among others of course. Here endeth the straw grasping, I'm sure the competent psychiatrists that assessed her, considered
my little theory already....
Misdiagnosis of Berserker-blind rage syndrome
Berserkers (or berserks) were Norse warriors who are reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like
fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk. Berserkers are attested in numerous Old Norse sources. Most historians
believe that berserkers worked themselves into a rage before battle, but some think that they might have consumed drugged foods.
Beserker - Wiki
Modern scholars believe certain examples of berserker rage to have been induced voluntarily by the consumption of drugs such as the hallucinogenic
mushroom Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly Amanita, or massive amounts of alcohol. While such practices would fit in with
ritual usages, other explanations for the berserker's madness have been put forward, including self-induced hysteria, epilepsy, mental
illness or genetic flaws. (Emphasis mine)
Could they be beserkers?? Could there be a genetic link??
I'm sure this will intrigue me enough to do a little more digging, and since Mallow isn't actually that far from me, I may take a trip to their local
library for some more info, ask a few friends of friends from Mallow about her or maybe even strike up a conversation or 2 in a pub while 'having
lunch'. Apparently she was released in January/February and went back to Mallow to her family, so if I see her, I'm legging it!!
