Here is the latest on the RSE student Vanda Boone murder

The Buffoon tells everyone that they should move to Yelm or his surrounding so they can be protected.

Man pleads guilty to Yelm woman’s murder
By Megan Hansen
Nisqually Valley News
Published: Friday, March 25, 2011 4:15 PM PDT
A Tenino man pleaded guilty last week to last summer’s murder of a Yelm woman on the Yelm-Tenino Trail.

Bernard “Keith” Howell III, 27, was convicted of first-degree murder in Thurston County Superior Court.

Howell faces more than 26 years in prison for the death of Vanda Boone, 60.

Howell was found Aug. 8, 2010 with Boone’s body in his truck.

A Thurston County Sheriff’s deputy pulled Howell over in front of Parkside Elementary School in Tenino after being flagged down by a man saying Howell had asked him to help move a body.

Boone was found wrapped in plastic and a sleeping bag in the passenger seat.

Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock said Boone’s throat was slit and she had blunt force trauma to her head and neck.

Other contributing factors to her death include asphyxia due to strangulation or smothering.

Police believe Boone was attacked by Howell while she was near Churchhill Road on the Yelm-Tenino Trail.

Howell was arrested and booked into Thurston County Jail on suspicion of murder and first-degree theft.

He told police “he wanted to give her a free funeral and not have the family pay any money.” He reportedly left the scene in Boone’s vehicle to gather supplies including a sleeping bag, plastic and a 10-pound weight.

In a later interview, Howell changed his story and told police he didn’t murder Boone, but found her body, became aroused and had sex with the corpse.

During initial interviews, Howell claimed to hear voices. He was evaluated at Western State Hospital and initially deemed incompetent to stand trial.

Howell was admitted to Western State Hospital until he was deemed competent to stand trial.

A trial was set for this month prior to Howell changing his plea. ... 593547.txt

:?: Reaction from the students I spoke with was that she attracted this to her by her thoughts.

And to prove it, they said a year previous, her mobile home caught on fire! Must be thoughts. You create reality.

Oh my gawd, no! I haven't been to this site for a very long time. I knew Vanda! I met her and her then husband at my first event. Is this the same Vanda Boone who was a very good massage therapist in Manhattan? I knew that she and her husband split up. I am heartbroken to hear this. Vanda was a very, very sweet woman. I had no idea she even moved to Yelm, but was aware her lovely business studio in Manhattan was no longer occupied by her. Oh, Vanda. I am so sorry you bought it all. :cry:

tragic story, indeed, G2G. Vanda in no way deserved this, no more than John Lennon deserved to be shot by that nut Mark Chapman.
Mentally ill/psychotic folk do not follow any rule but that from "within" when they commit such horrendous acts. Having Schizophrenia means to be "split" or cut off from reality testing with the real world of social moderation, shared moral and factual principles, and human decency.
CUT and Liz Prophet used the same old double bind on their devotees: "it is your Karma, it was meant to be, you attracted this to you"
"we have the most powerful techniques [decrees in CUT]known to mankind to protect you from anything."

The talk around the cult reinforced fanciful stuff like this: 'Mark Prophet had such a strong forcefield in his aura that it stopped a bus in its tracks from hitting him once'

Cults like CUT and RSE tend to envelope members in a schizophrenic world view.
A double tragedy for Vanda. I pray her reward is double--she deserves it.

I am still in tears after reading about this here just yesterday. My adult children used Vanda as their massage specialist in Manhattan. I've been there and so has my husband. It was a lovely studio and she had a business partner. Once I really left RSE and lost my sister, I stopped returning Vanda's calls. I am with an "if only." I should have told her I left and why. They say no family? What about her ex-husband? They were not on bad terms. What about all of her former clients and business partner in NYC? We wondered why we couldn't locate Vanda for an appointment! I had no idea she really moved to Yelm. Have there been any articles in the NYC papers about her? She was in the middle of Union Square in Manhattan.....a very visible area. In her studio, she kept a picture of the blue body, and an RSE water bottle which she would use to bring back a bit of water from RSE, and then mix more with it to keep it, I guess, "holy." Vanda was beautiful, bright, energetic, caring and loving. RSE ruined her! And her ex? The newspaper article claims she has no known relatives, but does her ex even know? I remember hugging her during my last event. She was my friend, and we would sit near one another. She also had another friend who would travel with her, as well as her then husband. I knew there was some problem there, but he was a nice guy. He was a student as well, but I don't know if he was as into it as Vanda. I feel like printing this all up and posting it on the door of Vanda's old studio in Manhattan......her old friends and clients have a right to know how RSE affected Vanda as well as their lives. Vanda did NOT deserve this. I love you, Vanda, my dear friend.

Blessings to you G2G - before you add more to your compassionate suffering, know, please know, Vanda wouldn't have 'heard' you if you had initiated a conversation re why you left RSE.... You couldn't have directly prevented this tragedy.

you may or may not have seen in the info posted here, that Vanda had a fire in her vehicle on the way here - or some such tragedy in which she lost everything.....

So glad to see you back on the EMF board G2G, although the circumstances of your learning of your friend's death are tragic. From time to time I have read your wise and compassionate posts here and wondered what became of you. Sounds like you are doing fine, and perhaps you have moved beyond recovery from RSE to just having a regular life in freedom of spirit.
I have to say that Vanda was equally likely to have been killed in Manhattan; the sick person who murdered her could equally likely have moved to New York. And what was posted here makes me believe that she was building a decent life for herself in Yelm; working as a massage therapist. She must have felt she had made a fresh start. She may have wanted to be near fellow students. I agree with AD60 that probably anything you said to her would not have made a difference to her relocating there; please stop reproaching yourself.
All the best,
Lost in Space

Although I agree that Vanda was happy to be in Yelm, I can tell you that she left many things behind. I knew Vanda and some of the other people she associated with, and had dinner with them on a couple of occasions. Vanda moved to Yelm because of what JZ Knight has told anyone willing to listen. "Yelm is a protected area, in the days to come, if you live in Yelm, you will be protected from the floods, the earthquakes and the tsunamis that will destroy the planet as we know it." Had JZ Knight not filled Vanda with fear over staying in New York, and had JZ not convinced her that she would be safe in Yelm, she would not have come here, and she would probably be alive today. JZ Knight, as far as I'm concerned, has as much responsibility for Vanda's death as the monster that killed her. I just wanted to make it clear why Vanda decided to move to Yelm, so there was no misconception as to what would encourage a successful, happy, lovely and carefree woman to leave a very successful business in New York, to literally start all over again in Yelm. I can tell you that it had nothing to do with wanting to be near her friends, but everything to do with the fear JZ created in Vanda. I know for a fact that had JZ Knight told her that she was perfectly safe in New York, and that Manhattan was within a 30 mile protected barrier of the days to come, Vanda would have stayed in New York, and felt confident in her safety.

I am sorry for your loss G2G.

Truly sorry for people all over the world who have bought into jz's bs
It is perfectly possible for a man to be out of prison, and yet not free - to be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national state, or of some private interest within the nation, wants him to think, feel and act. - The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective.‖

You know, it's hard to keep track of all the murders, mysterious deaths, molestations, rapes, assaults, suicides, abuses, violations, thefts, scandals, scams, etc., which have all occurred under Ramtha's "protection." No wonder JZK, Inc. lawyers need clarification on which atrocities people are talking about. Even they may have a hard time separating it all out.
