    Texas Psychic Is Suing New York State for $100,000 Reward


    A Texas based psychic claims to be possessing “spiritual gifts from the almighty” has filed a lawsuit against New York state for not awarding him the prize money meant for anyone who provided valuable information regarding the whereabouts of escaped prisoners David Sweat and Richard Matt.

    The three-week prison escape of the convicts garnered a lot of media attention. New York state governor, Andrew Cuomo, announced that the state would pay a handsome bounty of $100,000 to anyone who had information regarding the escapees.

    Self-proclaimed psychic, Eric Drakes, claims to have called the governor's office to provide information regarding the prisoners. Drake says that he foresaw that the two prisoners had gotten separated because of some reason. He also saw that the cops were constantly passing by them without being able to recognize or capture them.

    Drake also says that he saw one of the prisoners heading towards the rivers and mountains. In his lawsuit, Drake claims that all this information turned out to be “right on point.” He says that it was because of this that the police managed to capture Sweat and shoot down Matt.

    Drake allegedly called the governor's office to claim the prize money, but no one provided him any information regarding the filing process to receive the reward. He is now suing Cuomo and the state of New York for breaking the promise for a reward.

    In his lawsuit, Drake writes, “The odds of someone without the gifts of the Spirit of God, guessing on the information that the Plaintiff provided to the authorities is probably less than one out of 25 billion.”

    Drake claims to have possessed these special psychic hotline powers since childhood. He apparently foresaw the death of president Obama's grandmother right before election night in 2008.

    According to Drake, there is another “deeper sorrow” awaiting the president’s family. He is not willing to reveal the details of his prophecy to anyone but the president and his wife alone.

    Drake has prophesied that amongst the trio of Biden, Clinton and Trump neither one will become the next president.


    If Drake manages to receive the prize money, he plans to use it to write his book of prophecies.
