It's the stories like these that have made me a skeptic who can be outspoken against fraudulent claims. The "facilitator" was obviously trying to gain fame and notoriety from an extremely unwell individual. Damn shame.

Agreed. Con men are everywhere and take advantage of every single situation that suits their fancy.

I remembered hearing about the story, but did not read about it at the time. When I went back and learned that this was not the person communicating, but the person through a facilitator then I realized that this was a con that worked on all of the reporters.

to be honest
the first time i heard about this story
i thought about Randall Brown and Irving Bishop.. awesome mentalists from the end of the XIX..
Brown and Irving were capable of locating any object thought by an espectator, by doing what banachek calls Psychophysiological Thought reading: by touching the arm of the spectator, the spectator would conduce him (without knowing?) to the object...
is the same ideomotor response used by Dowsers, Ouija believers and Pendulum users.
So when i read about this story, i thought... hey.. maybe there are people out there that managed to master this practically lost technique...
it end up being another scam...
i wonder if the ¨helper¨ actually has deceived himself that he is actually interpreting what the guy is saying or is just a real jerk and knows precisely what he is doing (or not doing in this case).
sad story indeed..
