Welcome. This website focuses on the Carol Felstead case, the Satanic Ritual Abuse Panic, false memory, and other issues that are of interest to me. The Satanic Panic has never gone away, and has simply reshaped itself into different forms to deceive the unwary and to trap the gullible. I’m co-author of Justice for Carol – The True Story of Carol Felstead: The Creation of a Satanic Myth in the United Kingdom. If you are unaware, it is more or less certain now that Carol Felstead’s was the first major fictitious case of Satanic Ritual Abuse, and started off the Satanic Panic in this country. Carol was my sister, and the story of the book is about how a normal person went for medical treatment, was brainwashed, drugged, and maltreated until her early death at the age of 41 in 2005. We began our quest for the truth in the same year, and encountered corruption, lies, mythmaking and obstruction at every point of our journey.
Wild claims apparently generated under therapy investigated by the police and found groundless. Funding removed. Clear links to the kind of treatment Carol Felstead received.
Some remarks on the second inquest, and where we stand in relation to the Justice for Carol Campaign.
The pre-inquest took place on Thursday, 26 March, as planned in the Royal Courts of Justice, London.
A comprehensive insight into the recent judgement on what has become known as the ‘Hampstead Satanic cult’ case. As usual, there was no Satanic cult. However, the case is such a typical example of the Satanic Panic I think anyone who wants to understand the subject needs to be acquainted with it – not least because of the devastating nature of the actual judgement itself.
Details of the upcoming pre-inquest hearing into Carol’s death, the forerunner to the actual inquest in June.
In London’s Royal Courts of Justice, yesterday, the previous inquest of 12 August 2005, into the death of Carole Myers, was quashed and new grounds for the enactment of a new inquest were accepted.
