Skeleton Key to the Conspiracy: The Eriksson Twins

Within six hours of being released, Sabina approaches two men on the street, Glenn Hollinshead and Peter Molloy, asking if they know where to find a bed and breakfast.  She goes with them to Hollinshead’s home, where they spend the evening drinking together.

Molloy would later describe Sabina’s strange behavior throughout the night.  According to him, she seemed anxious, and went to the window multiple times to look nervously outside.  At one point, she offers the two men a cigarette, but quickly snatches them back, saying they might be poisoned.

Molloy leaves late in the evening, with Sabina apparently spending the night with Hollinshead.

The next day, as he washes his car in the front lawn, a neighbor is met by a bloody Hollinshead who is saying, “She’s stabbed me.”

Eriksson TwinsOn their way to the scene, paramedics find Sabina in the street, hitting herself in the head with a hammer.  When she sees them rushing toward her, she runs to the nearby A50 overpass, climbs the railing, and drops forty feet to the motorway below (self-destruct programming triggered by their uniforms, obviously).

Three months later, on September 11, Sabina is officially arrested for the murder of Glenn Hollinshead.  Within a year, she will plead guilty of manslaughter with diminished responsibility (an insanity plea, basically), and sentenced to five years in prison.

During the trial, the defense council introduced the possibility that Sabina had suffered an instance of “folie à deux,” or “shared psychosis,” a rare syndrome in which the delusions of a stronger personality, the “primary” individual, can be transferred to a weaker personality.  In this case, Ursula, whom the defense claimed had a history of mental illness, somehow passed her psychosis onto Sabina.

An alternative theory put forth by the defense was that Sabina had suffered from a case of bouffé délirante, or “puff of madness,” an even rarer syndrome where a perfectly sane person will suddenly lose their mind for a small time and then return to normal.

Either way, it landed her in prison, with a projected release date in 2011.

This is the last we hear from the Eriksson twins: We know that Sabina has been released from prison, but her current whereabouts are unknown.

As for Ursula, the only bit of news I’ve found was a comment by David McCann that she was still in America, possibly looking after Sabina’s two children. He says that she has undergone an exorcism at her local church to help drive away the demons that forced her onto the motorway in 2008.

(One popular possibility that I haven’t mentioned, yet: that the sisters were possessed by demons.  Those touting this claim believe that the sisters’ display of super-human strength, unnatural ability to sustain damage, and overall shitty attitude are proof of the involvement of demonic forces.)

And there you are.  A perfect weapon in the War of Truth. Whatever Truth yours happens to be.

I’d love it if I could just turn this whole thing into a lesson about confirmation bias and selective attention.  Point out that even though most of these theories can easily use the Eriksson story as evidence, they also happen to be mutually exclusive for the most part.

But this video still bugs the hell out of me.  I keep trying to trust the official story (whatever that means), and admit that although instances of folie à deux and bouffé délirante are uncommon, they do happen.

But dag nab, does it seem like a stretch.

The question remains: is it any more of a stretch than Russian Brain-Washed Super-Soldiers?

  1. “No! NO, BITCH!” … This kills me! Excellent post. Thanks.

    Some may also find this interesting, considering your mention.

      Me, too! They try to cut it out of most of the video, but I heard it! Hahaha

        oh, it’s so funny, and I don’t know why

        • I can see it in my mind: Sensitivity training for roadside cop after experiencing strange encounter with the uber soldat twins.

      John Lennon is still alive……….just hated being asked “When are the Beatles getting back together?”

  2. Folie à deux is rare? I see folie des millions every day.

    This is fucking cool. Modern day unexplained mystery type stuff. Fascinating.

    This looks more like some form of “capgras delusion” along with some other mental issues.

  5. According to the book A Madness Shared by Two – Sabina didn’t kill anyone, thus the real killer/s are still out there!

    Whats the most crazy incident in this case? throwing off the bus from liverpool to london owing to paranoid staff? or cash in on Glenn Hollinsheads dead, like his brother do?

  7. @jacob Use yr common sense! Why should the privacy of innocent children (who could be subjected to bullying) and other family members suffer? In cases where their details (names, locations) are involved in the news, it is in agreement with all parties with precautions taken to safe guard the children. A lot of times this can’t always be done for various reasons.

    • Common sense, reality, and the truth tell us that if this story were what the video claimed, the news media would have been all over it, pumping out and dumping out facts, interviewing everyone, including the neighborhood dog. Since when has the media ever cared about anyones privacy. No, my friend, you need to consider this story with a common sense that is based in reality. I understand your point, but it does not hold up under todays media scrutiny where every iota of information, every scrap of scandle, and even every non-essential tidbit is sensationalized. No, something is wrong with this story.

    Have the Eriksson twins keep out of the public eye since the release of Sabina?No stories from other inmates?No nothing?Very strange………..
