I spotted a brief report of this in the Observer yesterday, and after a bit of Googling had to post it here because it appears to be the perfect UK Skeptics' Forum story, involving, as it does, communication with the dead, a psychic "former policewoman", reincarnation, UFOs, Greys, the West Wickham Spiritualist Church, orgasms and, er, Emlyn Hughes!
Liverpool, alien orgasms and dead footy stars... Kop that!
The earlier story about Ms. Cohen and the Greys, which also said that she and her partner attend West Wickham Spiritual Church, provoked a letter from the church:DEAD football star Emlyn Hughes is using a former policewoman to contact Liverpool FC manager Rafa Benitez.
Stephany Cohen says she has been contacted by the spirit of the former England and Liverpool captain. She says he is desperate to speak to the European Cup-winning manager and wants her to set up a meeting.
Three years ago the 45-year-old featured in News Shopper, sister newspaper of This Is Local London, when she revealed aliens called "Grays" were giving her orgasms.
Miss Cohen, of Lancaster Close, Bromley, is also expecting Grays from the planet Sirrus D to use her body to tell humans things.
Miss Cohen believes the Grays have been her spiritual guides for many lifetimes, including when she was Joan of Arc in the 1400s.
Liverpool FC declined to comment on the matter.A Google search for "Stephany Cohen" also found an interview with her from ufology.org.uk. The site seems to be down at the moment, but it was still in Google's cache which reveals that although she claims to have passed "the training down at Hendon to become a police officer", she was in fact working for them as a typist.It was with some dismay some of the members of West Wickham Spiritualist Church read about Stephany Cohens’ encounter with “Grays” from a planet called Cirus D (News Shopper, August 13). We would like to inform News Shopper readers neither Stephany Cohen nor Michael Williams are members of West Wickham Spiritualist Church nor do they attend our church services. They are not involved in any healing which takes place at the church. As Spiritualists, we uphold the right of every individual to believe in whatever they choose to, however bizarre those beliefs may appear to be. We do feel though we have to point out encounters with extraterrestrials such as Miss Cohen described are not in any way connected with Spiritualism.
