Straight A Student Kills Two in Moscow School Before Surrendering

Russian school

Russian student being escorted from school after shooting

In Moscow today a high achieving student walked into his school with a rifle and gunned down a teacher and a police officer before his own father was able to persuade him to surrender the gun. The father first spoke with his son over the phone and then in person after he raced to the school. Now the boy will undergo a mental evaluation.

In the fall of 2007 a camera crew from a Russian news station came to my home in Des Moines, IA to interview me, film me giving a lecture to a group, and follow me around for a day. Their goal was to prevent what they saw here in America from happening in Russia by getting the truth about antidepressants and violence to the people of Russia.

The news crew even went to Israel to interview a young Russian woman who was one of the early cases I worked on. She and her Israeli fiancé had been attending school at the University of Utah when he first contacted me. She had started on birth control pills which caused her some very serious psychiatric side effects. So she was put on what was thought to be the “cure all” at the time, Prozac.

After being put on Prozac she became psychotic/manic so she was hospitalized at that point and they dropped her off Prozac to put her on Paxil! Of course that only made matters far worse and she became so suicidal that her fiancé could not allow her out of his sight even for a minute to go to the bathroom alone or she would attempt suicide again. So her fiancé, a brain chemist who felt he should have recognized this sooner, handcuffed her to him in order to save her life.

His plan worked and she filed suit against the drug makers and was given a gag order after settling like so many others who have sued and settled. But she lived because of her fiancé’s determination to save her any way possible even though he told me he was still frightened because she still had her teeth she could use as a weapon! 🙂

One interesting thing they told me is that even though they were atheists the only way they could describe her was as if she were possessed. She would even speak in a man’s voice.

They are doing very well. Both have graduated in their fields and have a family of their own now and they know to NEVER EVER take an antidepressant! She even traveled with me to Denver to testify to the Colorado congressmen looking into the cause of the shooting at Columbine.

So if you are thinking any country is safe and protected from this Serotonin Nightmare in which we all find ourselves, THINK AGAIN! Now we wait to see if this young man is among the 97% of school shooters on antidepressants or among the 3% who are not. Find a database of those shootings here:

Additional Critical Information on School Shootings

Prophetic statement to me by a pharmacist on school shootings (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.

WITHDRAWAL 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. 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!

DEPRESSION MED: Postpartum: Woman Drowns Two Month Old Baby: Texas

Mom Charged With Capital Murder

Narjes Modarresi First Reported Her Baby Son Kidnapped
POSTED: Friday, April 23, 2010
UPDATED: 11:58 am CDT April 23, 2010

HOUSTON — A mother who first said her 2-month-old son was kidnapped and
then led investigators to his body has been charged with his death, police
told KPRC Local 2 Friday.

Narjes Modarresi, 28, was charged with capital murder in the death of
Masih Golabbakhsh.

Court documents said she “knowingly caused the death by placing the baby’s
face down in mud and water.”

“The doctor performing the autopsy noted water and mud in the (baby’s)
lung, stomach and airway, concluding that (the baby) was alive prior to being
placed face down in the muddy water and buried,” a court official read in

The Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the baby’s cause of death as

Houston police issued an Amber Alert for Masih Wednesday after his mother
reported that he was snatched from his stroller in the 8000 block of
Woodway Drive, near Briar Bend Park, at about 5:30 p.m.

Detectives said they questioned the mother and her story was inconsistent.

Her family said Modarresi was depressed and on medication.

George Parnham was hired as Modarresi’s attorney. Parnham is best known
for defending Andrea Yates, 45, who drowned her five children on June 20,
2001, while she suffered from postpartum depression.

Dr. Richard Pesikoff, with the Baylor College of Medicine, said there are
three levels of depression — the third level being most severe —
postpartum depression with psychotic features.

“Not only are you severely depressed, but your ability to tell the
difference between what’s real and what’s not real is lost. At this point, you
hear stories about mothers who kill their children,” Pesikoff said.

Pesikoff is not treating Modarresi.

DEPRESSION MED: Woman Turns Into a “Botox Bandit” Florida

Paragraph 19 reads: “In April, Tampa police reported they took Merk into protective custody for mental evaluation after she sent her ex-boyfriend a text message indicating she was suicidal. Police noted she was taking medication for depression.”

Spa manager believes she is a victim of the Botox Bandit
By Justin George, Times Staff Writer

TAMPA ­ The woman came in looking to peel off her past.

Blond hair, blue eyes, gym shorts. Like the girl next door, thought the manager of Skin NV, a med spa that opened in May.

The client said her 10-year high school reunion was around the corner and she wanted to be the envy of everyone else.

The spa obliged.

Chemical peel: $50. Laser treatment: $348. A protein-rich recovery cream: $155. Clarisonic Skin Care Brush: $195. Prescription-grade Vitamin A: $74.

Then came the bill: $851.68, not uncommon in South Tampa, where looks matter and women have the means, said Anne Nelson, Skin NV’s manager.

The client wrote a check and signed it Jaimie Merk.

Five days later, on June 15, the check bounced. It bounced again on repeat tries. Nelson has the bank paperwork to prove it.

That’s when she learned the story of the Botox Bandit.

“What kind of girl does this?” she asks now. “I just don’t understand.”

• • •

On Jaimie Merk’s Facebook page, her profile photo flashes an even, bright white smile.

She’s single, 32, and says she works as a weight-loss clinic director.

She majored in psychology at the University of North Florida.

Yoga is her new obsession, she notes on Facebook. She loves lying in the sun, hearing a baby laugh and getting facials.

She has nearly 400 friends. Some write her daily.

She doesn’t like to be called “ma’am.”

Elsewhere, a different picture of Merk appears.

Once, in a courtroom, a doctor testified that her self-esteem was so low that she resorts to stealing Botox to feel better, according to an attorney who was part of the proceedings.

In April, Tampa police reported they took Merk into protective custody for mental evaluation after she sent her ex-boyfriend a text message indicating she was suicidal. Police noted she was taking medication for depression.

People victimized by Merk do not have much sympathy.

Their names show up in lawsuits and court judgments.

In August 2007, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office asked the public for help catching the “Botox Bandit.”

A woman had shown up at Rejuva Plastic Surgery Center and Medi-Spa, received a facial and cosmetic procedures, and then disappeared leaving an $850 bill. She used an alias.

The Sheriff’s Office had a picture of the suspect ­ made possible because the plastic surgeon had taken a “before” photo.

A tip led deputies to Jaimie Merk, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s officials said at the time.

It was just one of several cases that landed her on probation until 2012 for several convictions of grand theft and worthless checks in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, according to the state Department of Corrections.

Her civil court and probation files contain claims from pet supply stores, renters and even an adoption agency saying she owes them money.

Those who have dealt with Merk wonder whether there are other victims.

• • •

Pregnant in 2004, Merk agreed to turn over her unborn child to adoptive parents through Heart of Adoptions of Tampa, according to a lawsuit the agency filed.

She told the adoption agency that she had no idea who the father was, the lawsuit stated. She said she met him at a bar.

Medical records stated that Joshua Sean Squires was the father. But Merk signed a notarized statement disputing that, the lawsuit said.

The adoptive parents and the agency paid her more than $5,000 for living expenses, attorney fees and other costs.

A few weeks later, the agency heard from Squires.

In an interview with the Times, he said he was in a weeks-­long relationship with Merk when she became pregnant.

“She knew she was pregnant with my child,” he said. “There was no one-night stand with anyone, and I was in the delivery room on Dec. 23, 2004.”

Squires, 30, now has custody of the 4½-year-old girl.

In 2006, a judge ordered Merk to pay the agency $6,113, court records show.

The agency’s executive director, Brigette Barno, said Monday that Merk has paid nothing.

In January 2008, prospective renters responded to an ad on Craigslist advertising a Seminole Heights house that belongs to Merk’s mother, according to Hillsborough property records.

Two of them, Angela Hart and Eric Younghans, wound up suing Merk in small claims court. Hart also sued Merk’s mother.

They say Jaimie Merk showed them a house and collected $1,900 from each of them.

Hart, suspicious after Merk delayed the move-in date, looked her up on Google and learned of her Botox Bandit past. She asked for her money back. In a court document, she said Merk agreed.

Younghans, meanwhile, learned from Merk that the house wouldn’t be available. Merk told him she would refund his money, he said.

Neither got a refund. Merk made excuses, they said. Sometimes she didn’t return calls.

In 2008, a judge ordered her to pay each $2,075. In Hart’s case, Merk’s mother was also held responsible, according to the final judgment.

So far, Hart, 30, has received $150, she said.

“She’s never going to learn her lesson,” Hart said of Merk. “People say people change. They don’t.”

Younghans, 56, has received $150, he said.

“She seemed very believable,” he said. “She’s very good at it.”

Merk did not respond to a voice mail message from the Times for this story. A note was left at her door seeking comment. An attorney who represented her did not call back.

“I’m not giving any comments,” said her mother, Debra Merk, who owns a $1.1 million waterfront house in Clearwater Beach. “As far as I know, what you’re saying is not true.”

• • •

In hindsight, the Skin NV manager said she felt a little wary about Merk’s June 10 check when she noticed the address in a neighborhood of rentals.

After the check bounced, she tried to call Merk. The phone numbers Merk left didn’t work.

Nelson sent her business partner to Merk’s stated address, a pink apartment building. The partner left a note.

No one called back.

Nelson contacted the Hillsborough County Victims Assistance program. A counselor helped her start the process of filing a bad check complaint. That process is now under way. No charges have been filed.

Nelson even tried to connect with Merk by inviting her to be a “friend” on Facebook.

Merk didn’t respond.

On June 25, after a Times reporter left messages for Merk, she sent an e-mail to the spa.

“I’m very sorry I did not contact you sooner,” she wrote. “I have not had a phone since you left that letter at my apartment, and I just received another letter in the mail today.

“I just want you to know that I am very sorry for this, and of course I’m going to pay for the services I received,” she wrote. “I am just not sure why you have chosen to take this further without even giving me the opportunity to rectify the situation.”

Merk said she would bring the money in this week.

Nelson told her the spa would be closed Friday.

By the end of the day Thursday, Merk hadn’t paid.

On a Facebook quiz, Merk writes that she loves the smell of flowers and wants to meet the man of her dreams.

Two things she is proud of? Her daughter and family.

Two things she is not proud of? “Let’s keep those in the closet,” she wrote.
