Montel Williams' psychic pal Sylvia Browne told the family of missing Shawn Hornbeck he was dead shortly after the Missouri boy vanished - and later allegedly offered to help locate his body for $700 per half hour.
The popular TV clairvoyant appeared on the "Montel Williams Show" in February 2003, four months after Shawn disappeared, and told Pam and Craig Akers she believed their son was "no longer with us."
She also advised that his body could be found in a wooded area 20 miles from their Richwoods, Mo., home, near two large jagged boulders.
Shawn, now 15, was found alive and well last Friday, living just miles away with a man now charged with snatching the boy when he was 11.
I AM SO SICK OF THESE PHONEY PSYCHICS!! $700 PER HALF HOUR!!?? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

GWAR is a satirical thrash metal/punk band formed in 1985-1986 by a group of artists and musicians at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. The band is perhaps best known for their elaborate sci-fi/horror film-inspired costumes, raunchy lyrics, and graphic stage performances.
Teen pregnancy rates are on the decline because more kids are using effective contraception - not because they're refraining from sex, researchers said yesterday.
The researchers, from Columbia University and the Alan Guttmacher Institute, said their study casts doubt on federal funding of programs that promote abstinence until marriage without discussing contraception options.
Using data from the National Survey of Family Growth, investigators examined sexual behavior and contraceptive use among young women ages 15 to 19 and found their pregnancy risk declined 38% between 1995 and 2002.
