MUST WATCH!! Conn. Asst. Att. General: Why No Release of Medical Records in Sandy Hook Shooting

Adams Prozac Eyes

The “Prozac Eyes” of Adam Lanza, Sandy Hook School Shooting

Absolutely perfect Paul Pezzack!!! You have done it again!!! Nobody does it better or says it better than you have done here in pointing out this perfect example of Adam Lanza’s “Prozac Eyes”!!!

When you look at the next picture of Adam posted below at the age of about 12-13 he is a normal looking happy boy, but even in this picture his eyes are beginning to give away the signs of the presence of the antidepressant that will over the next few years rob Adam of both his physical and mental health. It can clearly be seen in the later photos like the one you have posted here where those results are obvious as he slowly begins to appear to be a totally different person. The eyes and overall general appearance demonstrate the toll taken over the years by these drugs! Call an endocrinologist and ask how long the body/brain can survive a doubling of cortisol on a daily basis – exactly what studies demonstrate to be the effect of one 30mg dose of Prozac, whose mode of action is little different than any other SSRI antidepressant.

When research demonstrates that 64% of those with Autistic Spectrum Disorders are given antidepressants and approximately 97% of school violence has been committed by someone on antidepressants, the Prozac eyes only confirm what the evidence already indicates is more than highly probable.

Adam Lanza

People need to understand that when Adam Lanza killed his mother any record of what medication Adam was currently taking, other than the data contained within his medical records, most likely died with her. It has already been established in media reports that she shared little about Adam’s health or the treatment he was receiving with anyone else.

And now we have a man who is suppose to be the Assistant Attorney General for the State of Connecticut but can barely speak any English telling us the public has no legitimate need to know what is in Adam Lanza’s medical records. After listening to his statement in the video below it becomes all too clear that these officials KNOW and are intentionally hiding the fact that Adam was on an antidepressant just as approximately 97% of all the other school shooters have been (http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/). Why else are they saying that they do not want to disclose this information and it is not important for the public to be made aware of this because then they may decide after learning that information to come off their antidepressant?!!! So if there are no antidepressants sir, why not at least let us know that?

So they must assume they have not brainwashed the public enough yet about antidepressants and the patients just might put 2 and 2 together on their own and decide that being on an antidepressant s is not such a good idea? Granted the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis, but as long as those patients learn how to come off their antidepressants safely there should be no problem with that. And they can get detailed info on safe withdrawal here: (http://store.drugawareness.org/?wpsc-product=help-i-cant-get-off-my-antidepressant-mp3-download)

So my question is … are they also going to refuse to tell us what happens if we stand in front of a speeding locomotive because we might choose not to stand in front of a speeding locomotive? Hmmm…what am I missing?!! I will stand with Judge John Potter on this issue Mr. Assistant Attorney General. As presiding judge over the Joseph Wesbecker case, where eight died in a Prozac-induced murder/suicide in Louisville, KY, Judge Potter spent two years investigating the verdict in that case. His reason? He believed Eli Lilly, makers of Prozac, had secretly settled with the families of the victims to get them to stop presenting evidence so that they could get a not guilty verdict and voice publicly that Prozac was not the cause of this tragedy, which they did. Two years later it was exposed by Judge Potter as an actual paid settlement amounting to at least tens of millions of dollars. He said his reason for doing this was because knowing Prozac was to blame for those eight deaths is a public safety issue that this information needed be made available publicly.

I will tell you that in 25 years of fighting this battle for the truth about antidepressants I have NEVER before seen a more blatant  assumption of total ignorance on the part of the general public than this ridiculous statement out of the Connecticut Attorney General’s Office! Let it go on record that I am offended Mr. Assistant Attorney General and so should every American on the planet be offended, not to mention the slap in the face this is to all the loved ones of those who lost their lives that day! I thank you for making this cover-up of the truth so strikingly obvious to us all!

About this issue of Adam Lanza’s medical records I say, “Your excuse reeks to high heaven of drug company kickbacks to the state of Connecticut! Are they going to build a few manufacturing plants there to increase your job opportunities? Or are there going to be big donations to your campaigns in the upcoming elections there in Connecticut? Just where is that payoff? They have so many ways to line those pockets, don’t they sir? After all it was only 20 little children who lost their lives (and they couldn’t vote anyway, right?) and only six adults. Win a few, lose a few, huh? You still have plenty more citizens to pay taxes. So, no skin off your nose? Sure we understand. You just really need a way to get guns out of the hands of the public who rarely used them BEFORE antidepressants (which just happen to have both suicidal and homicidal ideation listed as side effects) hit the market and  Sandy Hook just happened to be a great opportunity. Is that it? With this new Obama Executive order on gun control signed January 3 it seems quite clear. You must show that “mental illness” was the cause of this tragedy rather than the drugs, otherwise you have no valid reason to take guns do you counselor?”

Whatever you do … DO NOT miss the following video of the meeting with the Connecticut Assistant Attorney General including his statement in the video below! Then read the evidence which the Attorney General’s office is ignoring on the antidepressant connection to school shootings below the video and share this information with all you know!

Connecticut Meeting

A blind Nigerian lawyer serving as Assistant Attorney General for the State of Connecticut, Patrick Kwanashie  

gives decision on the question of release of Sandy Hook School Shooter Adam Lanza’s medical records:

“No matter how the outcome of the use of antidepressants, or the causal link between the use of antidepressants and kind of violence that took place in Newtown, that’s not a legitimate use of information, that information. You can’t generalize just from one case. Even if you can conclusively establish that Adam Lanza – his murderous actions – were caused by antidepressants. You can’t logically from that conclude that, you know, others would commit the same actions as a result of taking antidepressants. So it’s simply not legitimate, and not only is it not the use to which they are proposing to put the information, not legitimate. It is harmful, because then you can cause a lot of people to stop taking their medications; stop co-operating with their treating physicians. Just because of the heinousness of what Adam Lanza did.”

…Patrick Kwanashie, Assistant Attorney General, Connecticut

I heard that same argument from the attorneys at Oprah when I presented the list of mothers who had killed their children I had investigated in the early and mid 90’s. But about 90% of those moms were taking antidepressants. Now I would prefer, as I believe most would, to know about that common denominator in the cases whether we have yet determined a causal link or not. No matter the common denominator, especially when that common denominator is known to change behavior, I would want to know and so would any good law enforcement investigator.

1998 Connecticut Lottery Shooting Leaves Five Dead (Luvox)

Perhaps Mr. Kwanashie should consider the only other mass murder/suicide like this in the state of Connecticut referred to in news reports at the time of the Sandy Hook shooting. That is the case in Newington, Connecticut of lottery worker, Matthew Beck, 35, who in early morning, in March of 1998, chased co-workers through the lottery offices gunning down four of them before shooting himself. Matthew had worked in this position for eight years and had just returned from medical leave for stress. He was taking the same antidepressant that Eric Harris was taking when he shot his classmates at Columbine, Luvox. His parents made this information available to me and they have continued to follow our work at the International Coalition for Drug Awareness ever since then knowing full well the antidepressant was the cause of their son’s actions.

Not Guilty Due To Prozac/Adderall-Induced Psychosis 

Next Mr. Kwanashie should check for any precedent setting cases in the state of Connecticut where he would find the case of a Stamford, Connecticut attorney, Eric Witlin, who was found not guilty after shooting at a motorist twice and then breaking into his ex-wife’s home with a gun in hand. In that case Senior Assistant State’s Attorney James Bernardi said Witlin’s mental state of psychosis on the night of the incident was uncontested, since both psychiatrists, defense as well as prosecution, agreed. What they both testified to was that Witlin’s actions stemmed from a psychotic episode brought on by Adderall, prescribed for attention deficit, and the antidepressant Prozac.

So it would appear that the courts in Connecticut have already determined that there is a causal connection between antidepressants and homicidal actions Mr. Kwanashie and they felt that information “legitimate” enough to issue a not-guilty verdict based upon the conclusion that Mr. Witlin’s actions were caused by the use of those medications.

Sandy Hook was a murder case and in a murder case toxicology is always a critical piece of the puzzle! Unless, as I mentioned above, you are withholding that information for Obama to issue the executive order he issued on January 3, 2014 designed to limit the second amendment to restrict guns from those who are the so called “mentally ill” – I say so called mentally ill because when it is medication-induced it is a temporary psychotic break that dissipates when the drug flushes from the system, not a valid mental illness.

Additional Critical Information on School Shootings

Prophetic statement to me by a pharmacist on school shootings in 1999:

“The symptoms I see in patients who abuse serotonergic drugs of any form…could aptly be described as the “Hitler syndrome” (over confidence in ones own policies or decisions, no fear of consequences, criminal behavior, death of people close to the abuser as the preferred method of solving problems in the abusers life, coldness and lack of humanity). I feel that in twenty years or less we will be confronted not with one Hitler but with thousands or millions… numbers so great that we will be forced to interact with their distorted thinking on a daily basis. (Littleton, CO., Riverton, KS., Jonesboro, AR., eventually little Hitlers in every town in America will grow up into BIG HITLERS) It is happening right now.

“The most insidious factor about long-term serotonin abuse is that it enhances the individuals persona to the point that they are able to manipulate others into their way of thinking just as Hitler did. This causes the distorted thinking, abnormal behavior, and loss of morality to spread like a contagion to otherwise normal people who have not even been exposed to the drugs. Those on the drugs are converted by the pharmacologic/physiologic processes into sociopathic demagogues.

“Do you have any comments on these thoughts, Ann? Please respond. Tell me we are not the only ones who see what is happening to our world!” (From Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare)

Claire Davis, Shot in Arapahoe, CO School Shooting Died Today

Claire Davis

CLAIRE DAVIS, DIED SATURDAY

FROM INJURIES ARAPAHOE SCHOOL SHOOTING

At the makeshift memorial at Arapahoe High School today many came to say their goodbyes. Shannon Wilhelm cried and held her son tightly in her arms. “Being a parent, the fact that you have to lose your child around the holidays or any time, it’s just not something you want anyone to go through,” she said.

Last Friday Karl Pierson set off one of the incendiary devices he brought into Arapahoe High School just eight miles from Columbine and fired five shots before killing himself just one minute and 20 seconds after entering the building and being confronted by an armed guard. In that minute and 20 seconds he also shot 17 year old Claire Davis who was just sitting with a friend.

Sadly today Claire Davis the high school senior shot last week in the Arapahoe High School shooting died at 4:29 p.m. in the Littleton Adventist Hospital after eight days on life support. Even though we have not had the opportunity to visit for several months now, Claire passed away in Littleton at the same time I was visiting over the phone with Mark Taylor in Denver. Mark was the first boy shot at Columbine High School.

Ironically Claire reminds me so much of Rachel Scott, the first girl shot at Columbine High School. Besides looking so much alike, they both were so very sweet and caring – beautiful on the outside as well as beautiful on the inside.

Classmate Maggie Hurlbut said of Claire, “One time I remember I was upset in the hallway, and she came up to me and she just – it was like, `Hey Maggie, I know we don’t know each other well but are you doing OK?’ And I told her yeah, and she was like, `Anything you need, I’m here for you,'”… “she just wants to take care of others, and that was really just a good representation of her character and who she was.”

Allison Bruhn, a junior at Arapahoe, arrived Saturday evening just as she had the previous eight days….”I’ve been coming every night and praying for an hour, praying that Claire would be OK, that she would get better,” she said. “Our school loves Claire. She was such a nice and giving person.”

Although we do not know yet if Karl was prescribed an antidepressant which could have contributed to his violent behavior and suicidal behavior, both adverse drug reactions known to double in this age group if given an antidepressant. We do know that 68 out of the 70 school violence incidents investigated thus far have found a perpetrator on an antidepressant: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/ Increasing serotonin – the mode of action of antidepressants – has LONG been known to produce impulsive murder and suicide http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda .

Listen to a school shooting suspect describe what happened to him when he took a gun to school and what triggered it for him: http://www.drugawareness.org/recentcasesblog/why-i-took-a-gun-to-school-1

As I have said so many times before, our world cannot afford these losses! We have lost far too many loving, caring, and brilliant individuals. We need them here! We cannot afford to let any more of them leave! Something must be done to prevent this from continuing!

Antidepressant: Woman Who Made False Accusations of Abuse at Duke Found Guilty of Murder

crystalmagnum

Crystal Magnum

Found Guilty of Murder

This case makes it clear why it is so important for the public and the judicial system to recognize and understand these antidepressant-induced False Accusations of Abuse or recognize any of the early toxic reactions. This case of her false accusations of abuse against the Duke players was a warning sign of potentially more dangerous toxic reactions to her medication. Even though the story below refers to the case and states that “Magnum’s inconsistent story and her mental stability was called into question” still no one linked her questionable mental stability to adverse reactions to her antidepressant. If someone would have known enough to see her first case as a toxic reaction to the antidepressants she was on, and these false accusations of abuse are such common reactions to antidepressants, then they should have known enough to wean her off the medications at that point … before it reached the point of her committing murder as the drug reactions worsened leading to violence. This was completely preventable!!!

You can see the progress of the toxicity in her behavior listed below:

* 2006 – Falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her in a gang rape…Magnum’s inconsistent story and her mental stability was called into question. …Prosecutors declined to press charges for the false accusations, but Mangum’s bizarre legal troubles continued.

* Not long after she was convicted on misdemeanor charges of setting a fire that nearly razed her home with her three children inside.

* In a videotaped police interrogation, she told officers she set got into a confrontation with her boyfriend at the time – not Daye – and burned his clothes, smashed his car windshield and threatened to stab him.

* 2011 – Stabbed boyfriend, Reginald Daye, killing him.

You can find all of this listed as examples of antidepressant toxic reactions in my 2004 http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda and 2006 testimonies before the FDA http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-december-13-2006-to-the-fda

Are Vivid Dreams A Concern in Antidepressant Use?

 

Dr

Dr. Tracey Marks

Thanks to our Southern Washington State Director for ICFDA (International Coalition for Drug Awareness) who learned firsthand how deadly vivid dreams are in association with antidepressant use when his son took a gun to school in a dream state while on Effexor and in withdrawal from Paxil and held his classmates at gunpoint for what seemed an eternity for some.

Dr. Marks downplays any importance of the SSRIs repression of REM sleep and the vivid dreams or nightmares associated with these drugs and even suggests switching to another antidepressant if this reaction bothers you…yet she gives no warning of the dangers of switching medications by going off abruptly and then on another one abruptly – the way all meds are prescribed.

My response to this video and the incorrect information relayed:

“This is perhaps the MOST IRRESPONSIBLE statement I have ever heard on antidepressant adverse reactions!!! These antidepressant-induced vivid dreams are the most dangerous reactions anyone can have next to Serotonin Syndrome. That is because the vivid dreams indicate you are on the verge of suffering an antidepressant-induced REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) where you act out these dreams or nightmares! Add to that the fact that in RBD 80% are known to hurt themselves or someone else. RBD is even known to result in murder and suicide committed in a sleep state! Before SSRIs RBD was rare but not now and now 86% of those being diagnosed are taking an antidepressant – a figure shocking even to the world’s leading experts on this disorder who found this percentage!

“The repression of REM sleep via a medication reaction or sleep deprivation has long been known as a trigger for psychotic breaks. So I am confused as to why would you tell patients not to worry about this? Eric Harris, the lead shooter at Columbine, had those vivid dreams about killing his classmates for some time on the antidepressant Luvox before acting out those dreams on April 20, 1999!

“I have raised the issue of this deadly sleep disorder associated with antidepressants often preceded by the vivid dreams for 2 1/2 decades and would like to know if you have vested interests due to working for a pharmaceutical company? Or are you trying to avoid a wrongful death suit brought by a patient who suffered this reaction? Something just does not smell right when you are downplaying such a deadly reaction to antidepressants.”

Secrecy shrouds Sandy Hook shooting investigation

Sandy Hook Shooting

Secrecy shrouds Sandy Hook shooting investigation

My comment: The title of your article is most definitely an understatement! In 2 1/2 decades of tracking and documenting school shootings for the involvement of antidepressant medications by the shooters and being called as an expert in these cases, I have never seen a case with so much secrecy as Sandy Hook! Why search for antidepressants in these cases? Because out of 70 cases investigated 68 have been on these drugs with listed side effects of both suicide and homicide. I would post that data link for you, but KSL does not allow it. Google International Coalition for Drug Awareness for a list with all documentation. http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings/

This type of keeping information from the public on these shootings began with the Virginia Tech shooting though. I was with the first boy shot at Columbine, Mark Taylor, the only one to sue the antidepressant maker for their involvement in the Columbine school shooting, when the news broke about Virginia Tech. He and his mother were visiting me in Iowa at the time after I spent years working as an expert in his court case.

After we did several news interviews on the VA Tech shooting we noticed how quickly the reports from his roommates disappeared who had reported nothing was different about Cho that day. They had reported he got up took his antidepressant with his breakfast like always and got ready and went to class. Interestingly in that case his mental health records disappeared for two years until they mysteriously showed up in a doctor’s office in his own private home. And how long do you have to file a wrongful death case in most states? Two years. Coincidence? Maybe.

It will be interesting to see what all is released tomorrow, but I am not holding my breath!

To follow up the report contained little to help anyone know Adam Lanza’s motive. Yet it said in 2005 he had been diagnosed with Aspbergers, an Autism disorder which means there were eight years in which he could easily have been medicated with antidepressants that are so commonly prescribed for Aspbergers. The drugs work by impairing serotonin metabolism which is known to produce impulsive murder and suicide. And a  journal article out this month demonstrates that 64% of those with Autism disorders are taking antidepressants or other mind altering medications. Anything that impairs serotonin metabolism as antidepressants do are known in medical literature to produce impulsive murder and suicide, extreme violence, suicide, deadly sleep disorder which includes murder-suicide, etc. 

 This article on the report out on Sandy Hook http://www.deseretnews.com/article/765642251/Report-due-on-Sandy-Hook-shooting-investigation.html states that authorities  “… tried within the limits of privacy laws to gather information on his medical treatment.”
So since when do privacy laws apply after murder?! Never in any murder cases I worked! At that point medical records become “evidence” not information protected by privacy laws!

MEDICATION: SUICIDAL UTAH WOMAN PRISON BOUND AFTER FATAL FIRE

 

 

 

Yvette Kimber

YVETTE KIMBER

TWO DIE IN FATAL FIRE WHILE ANOTHER WHO JUMPED TO SAVE HERSELF LATER DIED OF INJURIES

This case happened two years ago. Today she was sentenced to 57 1/2 years in prison – basically a life sentence and just today the news reported the following information below indicating medication use. Of course if she was on medication and suicidal and drinking and starting fires (pyromania) and not knowing if she was trying to commit suicide by starting the fire (because she likely cannot remember what she did) and on top of all that living in Prozacland, Utah we can easily assume that all that would add up to the fact that she was on antidepressants at the time of the crime.

The arson took the lives of three of her friends and neighbors at the apartment complex. Two died in the fire and one jumped from the second story in an attempt to avoid the fire and died the following year from those injuries.

“The night of the fire, Kimber called police and said she was suicidal and planned to overdose on medication, a police affidavit said. One minute after her call, firefighters received notice of the fire.

“Kimber told on-scene officers that she fell asleep holding a lit cigarette. She and her boyfriend fought earlier, she said, and she started drinking beer and taking pills, according to the affidavit. She also admitted to smoking marijuana.

“Kimber told police she dropped the cigarette while sitting on the love seat in her living room and looking at a basketball schedule. The cigarette heated up the love seat and a throw pillow caught fire. Kimber then rushed to a neighbor’s home next door to report the fire.

“(Police) asked Yvette if she, because of her suicidal feelings, lit the fire on purpose,” the affidavit states. “Yvette stated she did not know.”

Patients need to know that due to the strong mind altering affects of antidepressants it is generally the brain that goes dead before the body does when one attempts to overdose on these medications. So the chances are you can do all kinds of out of character things before you die from an overdose.

Medical Professionals Killing Others in Murder/Suicides

I have long stated that various types of medical professionals and their family members are largest single group facing serious reactions to antidepressants. With their easy access to medications and their strong belief in them we find a high use among them. One psychiatric nurse out of Iowa said publicly that 75% of the doctors and nurses she worked with were taking antidepressants. She said the drug reps are telling doctors and nurses that they are in stressful professions and the “depression” is going to hit them sooner or later so they may as well get started on antidepressants now to sort of “nip it in the bud” as they say. And apparently they are falling hard for that old sales pitch!

While searching for a particular murder/suicide case online the other day I ran across one case after another, after another, of murder/suicide situations involving medical professionals or family members of medical professionals and thought I would share with you what I see so often…..

Mom Stabs Daughter & Kills Self

Dr. Victoria Vovchik from New City, New York killed herself after allegedly stabbing her seven year old daughter and leaving a gory scene for the girl’s father to find!

Reports say that the mother was obsessed with her baby’s daddy and although they did not live together and he is recently widowed he did co-own the house and was allegedly leading her on.

Officials said the young girl had been stabbed 31 times, including across the throat, and was rushed to Westchester Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.

Story Below:
The woman who slashed her 7-year-old daughter more than 30 times before killing herself Thursday was a devoted mother who was “obsessed” with the man who fathered the girl and hoped he would marry her one day, a former landlord told The Journal News.

Victoria Vovchik, a 45-year-old podiatrist, slit her throat after stabbing her daughter in an attempt to kill her in the master bedroom of their Quarry Road home, authorities said Friday.

The woman’s death was ruled a suicide Friday by acting Medical Examiner Dr. Laura Carbone.

Her daughter, Ava, was in stable condition at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla on Friday.

Investigators don’t know how long the mother and child remained in the bloody bedroom before they were discovered by Ava’s father, Dr. Kristappa Sangavaram, an anesthesiologist, who called 911 at 1:09 p.m. Thursday.

Before moving to the home in 2010, Vovchik lived in a rented home on Strawtown Road in New City.

Her landlady, Carol Huggins, described her as a devoted mother who was convinced that Sangavaram would marry her someday.

Huggins never saw Sangavaram but said Vovchik was deeply in love with him.

“She was obsessed, and he was just leading her on and on … I was concerned for her,” Huggins said. “She was totally in love, she was hoping that he would eventually be with her.”

Vovchik filled the backyard with expensive playground equipment and enrolled the child in Indian language and dance classes so she would learn her father’s culture, Huggins said.

“She talked about him all the time, and she would not even look at another man,” Huggins said. “When she gave her heart, she gave it forever.

I was concerned for her. I never met this man, but he was supposed to visit her once in a while, but she saw him less and less.

“Victoria would never have done this if she was in complete control of herself. Something terrible must have happened to her emotionally, for her to crack,” she said.

Aside from two self-inflicted incisions to her neck, Vovchik “had no other bodily injuries,” and toxicology results will not be available for several weeks, according to the medical examiner.

nvestigators are trying to figure out what led Vovchik to commit the violence.

“Maybe the little girl can shed some light on what happened for us when she’s healthy enough to talk to us,” Clarkstown police Sgt. Jo Anne Fratianni said. “It’s like putting a piece of the puzzle back together.”

She said police had never been called to the home for any domestic issue.

Sangavaram went to the house he co-owned with Vovchik after the Woodglen Elementary School nurse called him about his daughter’s absence from school Thursday.

Sangavaram, a widower since last year, lives in New Jersey, where he runs a restaurant.

Woodglen’s principal hosted a meeting with parents Friday afternoon. Support staff was in classrooms to help children and teachers.

“It’s a really sad, sad tragic event,” PTA co-president Jessica Fetterman said. “I don’t really know the family. It’s scary that this happened.”

At the meeting, parents discussed how they would respond if their children asked about the stabbing.

They also volunteered to help Ava’s family in any way, but were told to hold off until she was out of the woods, said Joseph Malgieri, Clarkstown school board president.

Richard Weiner, a Montvale, N.J., podiatrist who sold his Fort Lee practice to Vovchik six years ago, said he was shocked by the news of her murder attempt and suicide because he knew her only as pleasant and likable.

“I tried to introduce her to the (Fort Lee) community. She was personable and was knowledgeable in her profession,” Weiner said.

He said she seemed busy whenever he saw her but that she closed her practice last year. She was looking for a group practice to join, he said.

Vovchik may previously have been a nurse, New Jersey records indicate.

She had been licensed to practice podiatry in New York since 1997 and in New Jersey in 2003, records show.

There are recent local cases of women accused of killing their children.

Manuela Morgado of Mamaroneck was accused of killing her 4-year-old son in October and has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

In 2011, former Spring Valley resident LaShanda Armstrong, 25, killed herself and three of her children when she drove down a Newburgh boat launch into the Hudson River. Her eldest son swam to safety.

Friends of Victoria Vovchik disclose insight into attempted murder-suicide

Family friends: Suicidal New City woman snapped (3/1/13)

NEW CITY – Friends of the New City woman who attempted to murder her daughter before killing herself have disclosed possible insight into what prompted her actions.
According to police, 45-year-old Dr. Victoria Vovchik, a podiatrist, stabbed her daughter, Ava Sangavaram, in their home on Quarry Drive yesterday. Clarkstown police say the girl’s father, Dr. Kristappa Sangavaram, discovered the bloody scene and called 911 after being notified by a nurse at Woodglen Elementary School that his daughter was not in class.
When officers arrived, they found both mother and daughter in the master bedroom. According to police, Vovchik was dead and the girl was conscious, but suffering from multiple stab wounds. Her throat had also been slashed.
However, family friends told Newsday Westchester that Sangavaram, who was never married to Vovchik, had recently lost his wife and refused to marry Vovchik despite her advances. This, they say, may have caused her to snap.

It is still unclear whether Vovchik’s psychiatric history had an impact of her decision.

Meanwhile, once Ava is healthy enough, authorities say they plan on questioning her to possibly determine a motive in the attack.

NOTE CLUES OF MED USE: From the pictures the look in her eyes early in the marriage and after where it appears all zest for life is now gone. Also notice the bloating in the later picture as opposed to the previous picture. Bloating is one of the most frequent reactions to antidepressants. Considering the attempted overdose on Xanax she may have been in withdrawal from an antidepressant and given Xanax to cope.

Jealous Mother Kills Son Because She Was Jilted by Husband

Manuela Maria Morgado

A New York mother killed her little boy before attempting to commit suicide after the child’s father reunited with his former wife, according to reports.

The Westchester County woman, caught in a custody battle over her 4-year-old son, killed the child before a failed suicide attempt in her suburban condominium, authorities said.

A dejected Manuela Maria Morgado was found semi-conscious and strangling the child’s dead body when police arrived at her home Monday morning. The police were called by a nervous family member, and found the mother and son Jason inside a room on the third floor, officials said.

Morgado, 46, tried to take an overdose of pills after taking the life of her son, a source told the news media.

Authorities did not say how the mother killed the child. Morgado was charged with second-degree murder, who apparently left suicide notes in the house.

The distraught father, Manhattan sports orthopedist Dr. Timothy Reish, came to the home Monday afternoon after the gruesome discovery by police.

Reish, 43, was involved in what looked like a fairly run-of-the-mill legal battle over the child before the mother’s murderous collapse, officials said.

There was no evidence of a threat to the child during the custody battle, authorities said.

Morgado, after an initial assessment at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle, was indicted in Mamaroneck Village Court and jailed pending a court date Thursday. A neighbor said the child and mother were nice people who never bothered anyone in the apartment building. The child’s father has recently reunited with his former wife, according to police.

Pelle Wall, 18, had asked a juvenile court judge to remove his three siblings — ages 16, 13 and 11 — from his father’s home until a criminal investigation surrounding his father is completed.

Pelle’s mother, Uta von Schwedler, was found dead in her bathtub on Sept. 27, 2011. Because of the mysterious circumstances surrounding her death — including the medical examiner not being able to determine if the death was the result of homicide or suicide — Salt Lake police are conducting a criminal investigation. Friends and family members of von Schwedler believe her ex-husband, John Brickman Wall, is the key suspect.

Wall and von Schwedler divorced in 2006, but a bitter custody battle continued until the day she was found dead.

Pelle Wall, who was living in his father’s house at the time of his mother’s death, said in court documents that he was “so fearful for his physical safety around his father he has, on occasion, armed himself with knives.” He moved out of his father’s house when he turned 18 and later filed a petition in court to have his siblings removed from the house, saying he was concerned about their safety and that they were “suffering physical, emotional or development injury or damage.”

George Zimmerman’s Wife Doubts His Innocence in Martin Killing After Being Attacked by Husband

Shellie Zimmerman

Shellie Zimmerman

Only weeks ago I posted about George Zimmerman being on Adderall when Trayvon Martin was killed and that the drug could have produced paranoia where there was little to no reason for it and triggered the extreme violence of the attack…leading to a death that could have been prevented. Well now George Zimmerman has attacked his own wife and she is doubting his innocence after seeing this violence in her husband where he threatened her and punched her father in the nose. She has now filed for divorce.

Am I surprised? Not in the least! The adverse reactions from the medications will continue to worse as time goes on and more and more meds are added on as they are prescribed to treat the adverse reactions he is having to the first one. I would expect that antidepressants were added to his medications after this incident with Trayvon Martin and in Zimmerman’s dealing with the stress of the court case. Of course this would make him more of a powder keg than he would have been while just on the Adderal which has been found in court to produce impulsive cases of murder.

His wife, Shellie Zimmerman, reported to the Today Show this morning that her husband had “a look in his eyes that I’ve never seen before.” And she is wondering now who she is married to – a statement that many, many mates of those on these deadly medications have made repeatedly over the past several decades. And most mates have seen that look in the eyes and know to be frightened out of their minds when they see it….that blank determined stare that brings on serious adrenalin rushes to help you exit quickly!

“Although cops reported that no gun was found after they responded to the dispute, she still believes her husband was packing.

“I absolutely stand by my story,” she said. “I did not see a gun. But … I know my husband. I saw him in a stance and a look in his eyes that I’ve never seen before.”

“This person that I’m married to, that I’m divorcing, I’ve kind of realized now that I don’t know him,” she told Matt Lauer on Thursday. “And I really don’t know what he’s capable of.”

“…this revelation in my life has really helped me to take the blinders off.”

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

SLC Man Arrested for Plot to Kill as Many as Possible in SLC Mall & Sugarhouse Movie Theater

City Creek

City Creek Mall

ANTIDEPRESSANTS??? So sure am I on this one that I hesitate to even put question marks after the question about antidepressants being involved in this case!

Jack Harry Stiles, 42, is being held on a $1 Million bond after first telling an officer at a hospital that he was planning to kill as many as possible in a downtown mall and Sugarhouse movie theater on the anniversary of his mother’s death. He would “randomly kill people until he runs out of ammunition.” And he planned to set off a bomb under a city bus or Trax train, had mapped out both locations, had detailed plans, guns and ammunition, ect. plus of course a “history of mental illness.”

All those are clues and add to that the fact that he lives in “Prozacland” which everyone calls Utah where more antidepressants are used than just about anywhere else as they have led the way in use for two decades. How you lose your mother and not get on an antidepressant in Utah would be the real question here.

When these things are planned on the anniversary of a personal tragedy it is often indicative of the person going into REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (RBD) and acting out their recurring nightmares. Because antidepressants repress REM sleep they are known to produce both psychosis and RBD. In fact they are the leading common denominator in this diagnosis being found in 86% of the RBD cases – this most violent of sleep disorders where patients are known to commit both murder and suicide in a sleep state with 80% hurting themselves or others.

So would you like to take a guess where my daughter, son-in-law and four grandchildren were planning on going this evening? You guessed it! That same movie theater! Would you also like to guess how many times I have warned them about going out to public places such as this in SLC? I think it has only been every time they have gone somewhere like this. Hopefully this has been close enough to home to convince them to get out of town now! But the problem is finding a safe place anywhere anymore with the widespread use of these drugs in our world.

Yale: 250,000 Yearly Hospitalized for Antidepressant-Induced Psychosis

With so many on these drugs and on the verge of going psychotic on them few places are safe any longer! Remember that researchers at Yale in 2001 found that 250,000 yearly were found in general hospital psych wards to have gone psychotic due to an antidepressant. Knowing how rare it is for a general doctor to catch these cases of antidepressant-induced psychosis the researchers pointed out that the actual figure of those going psychotic on antidepressants should be expected to be far higher than that quarter of a million per year figure. Is the figure double, triple, quadruple? Will we ever know?

How Many More Do Not Make It To A Hospital?

Obviously no one noticed the Trazadone induced psychosis in the Navy Yard shooter in time to get him into a psych ward and no one got James Holmes into a psych ward before he shot everyone at the Aurora theater last year. And no one noticed the antidepressant-induced psychosis in 68 out of 70 school shooters before they began shooting. (See list of school shootings & antidepressant involved in video format here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be and a written list can be found here: www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings )

And how many more are out there about to go psychotic on their medication or in withdrawal from their medication when it takes so little to trigger the psychosis? The FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing the dose, can cause suicide, hostility, or psychosis. So that would be anyone starting or stopping an antidepressant without weaning VERY gradually up or down on them. It would also be anyone forgetting to take their pills for a day or two. And it would be anyone switching from one antidepressant to another because you would double your chances by going abruptly off one and starting abruptly on another. All of these scenarios carry a very dangerous potential for a psychotic break induced by the use of an antidepressant.

To better help you to understand this antidepressant-induced violence and psychosis I refer you to a section of my testimony before the FDA in their 2004 hearing on antidepressants and suicide:

www.drugawareness.org/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda/

The Problem: Low Serotonin Metabolism, Not Low Serotonin

“For decades research has shown that impairing serotonin metabolism will produce migraines, hot flashes, pains around the heart, difficulty breathing, a worsening of bronchial complaints, tension and anxiety which appear from out of nowhere, depression, suicide – especially very violent suicide, hostility, violent crime, arson, substance abuse, psychosis, mania, organic brain disease, autism, anorexia, reckless driving, Alzheimer’s, impulsive behavior with no concern for punishment, and argumentative behavior.

“How anyone ever thought it would be “therapeutic” to chemically induce these reactions is beyond me. Yet, these reactions are exactly what we have witnessed in our society over the past decade and a half as a result of the widespread use of these drugs.

“In fact we even have a whole new vocabulary as a result with terms such as “road rage,” “suicide by cop,” “murder/suicide,” “going postal,” “false memory syndrome,” “school shooting,” “bi-polar” – every third person you meet anymore – along with the skyrocketing rates of antidepressant-induced diabetes and hypoglycemia.

“Can you remember two decades ago when depressed people used to slip away quietly to kill themselves rather than killing everyone around them and then themselves as they do while taking SSRI antidepressants?

Excess Serotonin Produces Extreme Violence

“A study out of the University of Southern California in 1996 looked at a group of mutant mice in an experiment that had gone terribly wrong. These genetically engineered mice were the most violent creatures they had ever witnessed. They were born lacking the MAO-A enzyme which metabolizes serotonin. As a result their brains were awash in serotonin. This excess serotonin is what the researchers determined was the cause for this extreme violence. Antidepressants produce the same end result as they inhibit the metabolism of serotonin.”

Kimberly Mitchell weeps at the grave of her husband, Chad Mitchell, who died of an accidental prescription drug overdose.

The Austin Statesman ran an incredibly well done & way overdue article today on what is happening to our veterans!!! True investigative reporting – something I thought had died an untimely death in this country! Thank you Austin Stateman!

For the past 20 years I have directed the International Coalition for Drug Awareness, www.drugawareness.org, to track these cases because so many are directly related to the massive use of antidepressants by our military. We have many cases documented in a database put together by our Texas Director which you can find at www.SSRIstories.com

Suicide, homicide, alcoholism & REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

These drugs are being given to a population generally within the age group (under 25) who the FDA has warned has double the chance of suicide if they take an antidepressant. They are dying in their sleep due to interactions between antidepressants & pain killers, or becoming alcoholic as antidepressants produce overwhelming cravings for alcohol. We have been seeing far too many veterans come home & commit murder/suicide on these drugs, or commit mass murders. Many remain unaware that antidepressants have not just suicidal ideation as an increased side effect, but also homicidal ideation. Ideation is constant ruminating thoughts or almost a compulsion … so these are increased compulsions or thoughts that will not be quieted about either killing themselves or others or both. They are even more dangerous for veterans because of the fact that 86% of those diagnosed with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder, where you act out nightmares in a sleepwalk state – some driving many miles to kill others, are those taking antidepressants. Anyone knows that someone recently returning from war is going to have nightmares worse than most. The problems due to meds are absolutely staggering.

Eric Harris unqualified for military service due to antidepressant use

All of this is absolutely insane when you see the changes in policy from just over a decade ago when anyone on one of these drugs would be turned away from the military because they did not want someone on a mind altering drug (especially those that can produce suicide, homicide & paranoia) carrying a gun in a war situation. The use of an antidepressant is why Eric Harris, one of the Columbine shooters, was turned down by the military in 1999. Seeing the extreme dangers can be made obvious in the case of Sgt. John Michael Russel of Sherman while having a toxic reaction to his antidepressant opened fire at a mental health clinic in Iraq killing 5 fellow soldiers. And as more comes out in similar cases we will see these drugs were involved in them as well.

Stan White, a father with a mission

Stan White is a father who has been fighting to get the truth out about what these drugs are doing to our troops. He lost one son in combat & the other to a medication interaction after he returned home. I would hope that families contact him & join together to put an end to this nightmare. You are welcome to find him as one of my friends on Facebook if you cannot find him otherwise.

“VERY BOLD AND INFORMATIVE”

“PRICELESS INFORMATION THAT IS GIVING ME BACK TO ME”

“THE ABSOLUTE BEST REFERENCE FOR ANTIDEPRESSANT DRUGS”

“WELL DOCUMENTED & SCIENTIFICALLY RESEARCHED”

“I was stunned at the amount of research Ann Blake-Tracy has done on this subject. Few researchers go to as much trouble aggressively gathering information on the adverse reactions of Prozac, Zoloft and other SSRIs.”

WITHDRAWAL HELP CD TESTIMONIALS:

“Ann, I just wanted to let you know from the bottom of my heart how grateful I am God placed you in my life. I am now down to less than 2 mg on my Cymbalta and I have never felt better. I am finally getting my life back. I can feel again and colors have never been brighter. Thanks for all that you do!!” … Amber Weber

“Used your method of weaning off of SSRI’s and applied it to Ambien. Took 6 months but had been on 15 mg for years so what was another 6 months. I have been sleeping without it for 2 weeks and it is the first time I have been able to sleep drug free for 15 years. What a relief to be able to lay down and sleep when I need or want to. Ambien may be necessary for people at times but doctors giving a months worth of it at a time with unlimited refills is a prescription for disaster. It is so damn easy to become dependent on. Thanks for your council Ann.”… Mark Hill

“I’m so thankful for Ann Blake-Tracy and all her work. Also for taking the time out to talk to me and educate everyone! She has been a blessing to me during this awful time of antidepressant hell!” … Antoinette Beck
