ANTIDEPRESSANTS: Young Man Missing – Voices said “eat sugar”: Iowa

NOTE FROM Ann Blake-Tracy (www.drugawareness.org):

How bright of this prescribing physician! You have someone who
is disoriented so you give them a drug that
causes “disorientation”! So why would anyone wonder why this
young man got worse and then disappeared into the freezing weather with no
shoes or coat?
It does appear clear to me that the
antidepressant affected his blood sugar rapidly and strongly with the
heart palpitations and the cravings for sugar – both symptoms of a drop in blood

sugar levels. The brain cannot function without normal sugar levels and
immediately begins losing brain cells when the sugar level drops. And the body
pumps adrenalin – the fight or flight hormone – in an attempt to normalize the
sugar levels when they drop.

Moncada’s mother, Ana Moncada, said he went to work on
Thanksgiving night; and, when he returned home on the morning of Nov. 27, he
seemed disoriented. She took him to see a doctor, who prescribed an
anti-depressant. He continued to feel disoriented and began to hear voices, she
said.”

“ ‘He was hearing voices that saideat sugar,

said Maria Stockton, a friend who served as translator for his mother.  ‘He
felt his heart was beating too hard and thought if he ate sugar, his heart
would not beat so hard’.”

Bluffs man reported missing

A young
Hispanic man from Council Bluffs has been reported missing.

Larry Ely
Murillo Moncada, 25, was last seen Saturday, Nov. 28, at 6:15 p.m. at his
residence at 719 N. 14th St., according to his family. He was wearing a Navy
blue hooded sweatshirt and light blue seat pants. He was described as 5-feet,
5-inches tall and 140 pounds, with brown eyes.

Moncada’s mother, Ana
Moncada, said he went to work on Thanksgiving night; and, when he returned home
on the morning of Nov. 27, he seemed disoriented. She took him to see a doctor,
who prescribed an anti-depressant. He continued to feel disoriented and began to
hear voices, she said.

“He was hearing voices that saideat sugar,’”

said Maria Stockton, a friend who served as translator for his mother. “He felt
his heart was beating too hard and thought if he ate sugar, his heart would not
beat so hard.”

He did not eat very much sugar, she said, but by Saturday,
he was hallucinating.

“He said somebody was following him, and he was
scared,” she said.

It was apparently this fear that led Murillo Moncada
to run out the door that evening without any shoes on, Stockton said.

The
family has checked with acquaintances and posted flyers at businesses they
frequent, but have heard nothing so far.

Anyone with information on his
whereabouts should contact Detective Shawn Landon of the Council Bluffs Police
Department at (712) 326-2508 or Crime Stoppers at (712)
328-STOP.

Update: America’s Most Wanted Man: Shot 4 Relatives Dead at Thanksgiving Dinner

Paragraph six reads:  “Merhige has a history of mental
instability and took medication for depression and anxiety.
A law enforcement source has told CBS4 News the suspect had previously attempted
suicide, but U.S. Marshal’s appear convinced Merhige is still alive and on the
run.”

The crime-fighting show
America’s Most Wanted” will once again profile the Thanksgiving night massacre
in Jupiter that left four family members dead and one of their relatives on the
run.

The show will focus on the international manhunt for Paul Mehrige,
in partnership with the Jupiter Police and the US Marshals Service.

Host
John Walsh has a news conference scheduled for Tuesday afternoon on Miami Beach
where he’ll be joined by Jim Sitton, the father of the 6-year-old girl who was
killed in the shootings. Officials from the Jupiter Police Dept. and US
Marshal’s Office will also be there.

Federal authorities have already
unveiled billboards with a picture of Merhige in South Florida — one on
southbound Interstate 95 in the Delray Beach area and the second in the
Hallandale Beach area, just north of the Miami-Dade County line.

Merhige, 35, is wanted on four counts of first-degree murder charges in
the deaths of his 6-year-old cousin, 79-year-old aunt and twin sisters after
Thanksgiving dinner in Jupiter.

Merhige has a history of mental
instability and took medication for depression and anxiety. A law enforcement
source has told CBS4 News the suspect had previously attempted suicide, but U.S.
Marshal’s appear convinced Merhige is still alive and on the run.

Investigators have previously released ATM photos of Merhige withdrawing
large amounts of cash before the murders, part of what they believe was a
pre-conceived plan to be able to maneuver without leaving a trail of electronic
transactions.

He may be driving a royal blue 4-door Toyota Camry. There
is a $100,000 reward for information leading to his capture.

If  anyone has information about Paul Michael Merhige, contact the Jupiter Police
Department at (561) 746-6201, their local law enforcement agency or Crime
Stoppers’ anonymous “TIP” phone number, 1-800-458-TIPS (8477).
