So many of these tales come from places like Haiti and the other islands. Could there actually be something to them?
Felicia Felix-Mentor reportedly died in 1907, after a sudden illness of the type that Haitian belief finds to be characteristic of a person marked to be made into a zombie. In 1936, a woman (either nude or in ragged clothing, depending on the source) was found wandering the streets, and made her way to a farm which she claimed belonged to her father. The owners identified the woman as Felicia Felix-Mentor, long thought dead, and Felix-Mentor’s husband also confirmed this. Due to her poor health, she was sent to a government hospital. A doctor who interviewed her described her behavior:
Her occasional outbursts of laughter were devoid of emotion, and very frequently she spoke of herself in either the first or the third person without any sense of discrimination. She had lost all sense of time and was quite indifferent to the world of things around her.
Now what I understand about these Zombies is that they are not the flesh eating kind that we see in the movies now days. Just some very sick folks that suffer from a unknown illness of some kind. What ever the cause, I want no part of it, ya know?
Coffee out on the patio this morning. It's declared Zombie free!
