Was NYT Reporter Researching Psychotronic Weapons Murdered?
In February this year, reports emerged that the former New York Times reporter Sarah Kershaw had been found dead in the Dominican Republic. Police initially said that the 49-year-old had died from asphyxiation. Officials had investigated Kershaw’s husband, William Norton, for causing the death of his wife by strangulation.

Kershaw had been a reporter for the New York Times from 2000 to 2011. She had also reported for the Newsday publication and, at the time of her death, was a freelance writer. Kershaw’s body was found at her apartment in Sosua, where she had moved with her husband in 2014.

Sarah Kershaw first came to prominence when she wrote (1) an article for the New York Times in 2008, titled: ‘Sharing Their Demons on the Web’. The article is centered on mind-control techniques and the devastating impact they can have. In the article, Kershaw made some bold statements about the act of mind-control and those involved in it, writing:

“For people who regularly visit and write message boards on the mind-control sites, the idea that others would describe the sites as promoting delusional and psychotic thinking is simply evidence of a cover-up of the truth.”

Ms. Kershaw had exposed MKUltra (2), often referred to as the CIA’s mind-control program, which was an illegal program involving humans being subjected to experiments, designed and carried out by the CIA.

Could it be that Kershaw’s attempt to uncover the truth about psychotronic warfare and mind-control techniques was what instigated her death?

Psychotronic Weapons

At the time Sarah Kershaw wrote the article for the New York Times, the use of psychotronic warfare, the process of using non-lethal weapons which emit electromagnetic frequencies and target the central nervous system, leading to disruptions in the normal activity of the brain, was illegal against US citizens.

According to a report in the Abreu Report (3), in 2013 the legality involving mind-control weapons and techniques in America changed when the National Defense Authorization Act 2013 was passed. The report refers a document obtained by, which describes a program established by the US government involving the hiring of what is known as a ‘Behavioral Insights Team’.

The document was emailed by White House senior adviser on social and behavioral sciences, Maya Shankar, to a university professor with a request that the paper was sent to those interested in joining the team.

The essence of the ‘Behavioral Insights Team’ was that it was designed to “Subtly influence people’s behavior” by experimenting with various techniques. Such mind-control techniques would tweak the behavior of humans.

The news about the federal government’s ‘Behavioral Insights Team’, created opposition, with (4) critics warning unintended consequences of such policies could arise.

As well as speaking out about controversial practices involving mind-control techniques, the suggestion has been made that Sarah Kershaw may have been investigating a secret new power plant in the Dominican Republic.

The Abreu Report wrote that “speculation was rife” as to what the former New York Times reporter Sarah Kershaw had been investigating in the Dominican Republic.

The report talks of the construction of two power plants in the Dominican Republic and how it has been suggested that the building of the two plants are a cover for the development of a “secretive third facility”. According to the Abreu Report, details of the third facility were “negotiated in secret” between the Dominican government and the Pinergy Commercial Group.


Hidden Contract

Dominican Today (5) describes the Pinergy Commercial Group as jumping from an unknown plastics company to the subject of another Dominican government scandal with a “hidden contract.”

Major equipment from New York which had been built by General Electric, the defense contractor of the Pentagon, had arrived at the Punta Catalina facility, states the Abreu Report. Furthermore, the documents involving the equipment sent by General Electric to the secretive third plant had been “heavily classified” by the Dominican government.

An anonymous source, who claimed to be affiliated with INFOTEP, the Dominican government’s militarized technician-training division, told the Abreu Report that Sarah Kershaw had inquired about the exact nature of the equipment sent to the Dominican Republican plant by General Electric’s research factories in New York. Ms. Kershaw, had apparently inquired as to whether the equipment and facility were related to psychotronic warfare.

There is speculation among some Dominican groups that the equipment did not actually come from New York, but was sent from a secret Pentagon research center,” writes the Abreu Report.

Could it be that the investigative journalist had found something out about the secretive Dominican facility? Government Slaves certainly thinks that is a viable possibility, writing:

Is it possible that Ms Kershaw stumbled upon some new information that made her dangerous? Considering the speed at which the capabilities of psychotronic weapons have improved, the possibility is extremely high” (6).
