ODESSA, Texas (AP) - A man accused of killing his wife says he was trying to exorcise a demon from her when the devil entered his body and caused her to die, according to a police probable cause statement.
Jan David Clark, 60, was arrested Friday after authorities went to his home and found Susan Kay Clark's body wrapped in a bed sheet with a cross and sword on top of it.
Officers had gone to the home after being told that Clark had called a friend and said his 59-year-old wife was dead, said Sgt. Gary Duesler said the Ector County Sheriff's Office.
Clark told investigators he had his wife pinned face down on a carpeted floor when she died.
Clark was charged with murder and remained in the Ector County jail on Sunday in lieu of $300,000 bail.
He had declined to comment at the jail and it was unclear whether he had an attorney to speak for him.
The woman's body was taken to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
Taryn Beck said the couple had seemed to be close.
"They were like an old married couple," said Beck, 29, whose late grandfather was married to Susan Clark. "They would just roll their eyes at each other, but I never thought something like this would've happened."
Hate when that happens ping
More of that likely to be happening with the increase in lawlessness and the increase in demon/satan worship and associations.
Scripture says that when the evil are in power, the good hide themselves.
Satan worshippers literally—have been in charge of the globalist efforts for decades.
The fruit of such is surfacing more and more.
They should have went jogging instead to exercise that demon out. Probably was a misprint in the Things To Do When You Have A Demon manual.
‘Satan worshippers literallyhave been in charge of the globalist efforts for decades’...that’s pretty good.
They'd be better off sticking with "Demons for Dummies."
The worst part of the movie “The Exorcist” was the part where the priest said, “Take me” to the devil, then jumps out the window. Like that does the job!
Maybe this poor guy saw the wrong movie.
Not very new information.
“pretty good” ???
Only if one has a very twisted notion of “good.”
I was commenting on your verbage. I don’t happen to agree.
Time will tell.
Quite a lot of evidence—e.g. reports of folks who’ve been close enough to know—has come out in the last year affirming my convictions on the matter.
I would guesstimate that in the last 45 years plus . . . I’ve read more than 25 different reports to that effect.
Besides that, it’s congruent with Scripture’s assertions as to who’s going to head up the world government.
So, for me, it’s a no-brainer.
"The Exorcist" was loosely based on a true story. That particular part of "The Exorcist" was 100% fiction, however.
“A man accused of killing his wife says he was trying to exorcise a demon from her when the devil entered his body and caused her to die...”
So he killed her for whatever reason, staged the body, and is giving the police an religious excuse. ~Like that will work to mitigate the charge.
This isn’t the first time that one’s been used.
I guess our brains are different.
I also doubt you’ve studied the topic for 45+ years.
Yup, that sort of stuff should be left to experienced practitioners....:)
AT THE VERY LEAST
someone who is absolutely confessed up; repented up; prayed up and CERTAIN of their authority in Christ’s Name and Blood.
You are correct. If I had, then I would probably be a believer...or it would have been a huge waste of time.
Time will tell.
Has a lot of pros and cons on it . . . and a wealth of evidence, as well.
Yes, time will tell. That’s always good to say...but I doubt it will tell within our lifetimes.
Actually, to see 80% or more of the globalists’ goals I read about in their own words in my library job in 1965 . . . come true in the years since . . .
has been . . . a lot better than wasted.
Does that include exorcisms?
The globalists are not interested in exorcisms.
They are interested in INFECTING folks . . . demonically and otherwise.
My experiences with exorcisms was in a congregation in San Diego more or less specializing in such. Folks mental hospitals and pastors had given up on all over Southern California sent their human refuse to our congregation. There were some amazing turn-arounds for folks no one else had been able to help.
Sounds like you’ve not knowingly been face to face with obviously overt evil of an obviously demonic/other worldly sort.
How fortunate for you. I hope you can keep it that way.
You’re right, and neither has anyone I know. I don’t really think we have had anything to do with keeping demonically evil forces away.
Speaking of the which . . . not per se demonic forces but critters in cahoots with demons’ BOSS . . .
You might find
interesting . . . Guy Malone, founder and former abductee . . . has helped probably 100’s of individuals and families stop such goings on cold . . . even when families had endured such for many generations prior to connecting up with him.
It turns out that whether it’s
demons of WATCHERS/NEPHILIUM/FALLEN ANGELS/ET’s
the spiritual warfare strategies are effective against both.
Jesus’ Name and Blood Avail fully.
Of course, at some point, one may have to authentically demonstrate a RELATIONSHIP with Jesus for continued effectiveness.
But many folks just suddenly remembering a brief Sunday School lesson experience have stopped abductions in progress by yelling or even thinking when they couldn’t yell: “In the Name of Jesus—STOP—LEAVE ME ALONE—GO!”
I’ve never been abducted and I don’t know anyone that has told me they were.
When you meet such an individual or family . . . query them at length. You might find it at least a little interesting.
I think that sooner or later you will meet such. You probably already have. Folks are usually loathe to disclose such given the successful disinformation stuff afoot about those goings on.
I forget the stats . . . every day . . . how many . . . but at least 3 MILLION have been abducted.
Now whether those were abducted totally by human teams or “ET” teams or joint teams is a whole ‘nother issue! LOL.
Such abductees are quite sane and normal, and often slightly above average in IQ. They do have some evidence of Post Traumatic Stress Snydrome, however. Quite understandably.
This isnt the first time that ones been used.
That was my first thought too -- not unlike the teenager a while back who killed a younger kid with his bare hands while "practicing wrestling moves."
I see these people daily, why would I query them at length about something they’ve never mentioned before? People will think I’m nuts.
How do you know if someone has really been abducted or they are just making it up?
There are some standard things that reserarchers in the field do not disclose publically but which are virtually always part of the process. Folks who are just making it up don’t fit the pattern in disclosing such ‘secret’ markers of authentic experiences.
But, most counselors and even a lot of experienced lay researchers can get a ‘feel’ for authenticity, as well. Folks who make such things up are just a different breed of cat in some nuance sorts of telling ways.
Yeah, folks ascribe “nuts” quite freely . . . usually without much examination of the contingencies, issues, facts. I think it’s most often a kind of catch-all rationalization in dealing with uncomfortable topics that they have no real explanation for and are too nervous about truly facing and investigating.
And, in the case of abductions . . . what if it’s real? What if they are next? Frightful considerations, for sure—especially when they can imagine no defense.
Not being a researcher, I wouldn’t know if they were authentic or not.
I’m still not going to go around querying anyone. If it ever comes up though, I’ll forward them to you.
A demon cannot enter the body of a person who has been saved, as that individual is indwelt by the Holy Spirit. An unsaved person has no ability to cast a demon out of anyone. This guy was in trouble from the beginning.
Please do be careful . . . and watch out for who offers you a ride.
“That was my first thought too — not unlike the teenager a while back who killed a younger kid with his bare hands while “practicing wrestling moves.””
I’ve seen them come up with some doozies.
The one that got me was the Alzheimer’s guy who killed his wife, chopped her up and stored her a freezer.
It seemed like a good idea at the time to him.
Now calm down, folks. No need to get all exorcised about this.
OUT OF HERE! AWAY FROM ME! IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
That’s a pip! LOL!
Jesus I know and Paul I know but who the *%^$^@&%$(&*^(&*^
No, they haven't been. Please see: http://skepdic.com/aliens.html
There is, of course, the remotest chance that I'm wrong, in which case I recommend going to http://www.aliensurvivalguide.net/. I particularly like the fact they advise going for a head shot with an AK-47...the best defense is a good offense!
With weary-some old rationalizations and half truths. John Mack was a top flight psychiatrist—head of the Harvard Med School clinic or some such.
And the skeptic’s description of abductees etc. is askew of solid research to the contrary.
imho, most skeptics are paid shills for the government or folks who’s religion of science would crash and burn if they admitted something so strange. I have little use for any of them.
The estimate of 3-4 million doesn’t rest only on the survey.
There are reports from folks involved in . . . the taking . . . side of things . . . who have asserted XXX numbers a day. I forget the specifics.
This has been going on for many decades, BTW.
There’s tons of disinformation and deception involved, to be sure. But the existence of such goings on, is no longer a doubt, to me.
I know. In my book, it’s a classic. But the jumping out the window thing was an obvious departure (jump) from the real and amazing story.
(Winston Zeddemore) Ah, if there's a steady paycheck in it, I'll believe anything you say.
The people making money off this sort of thing aren't the skeptics...it's those who promulgate the claptrap. For a light-hearted but insightful look at this sort of thing, check out Penn & Teller's show Bullsh*t on Showtime. I can't recommend it highly enough.
