Brookelyn Farthing

Stepfather Says Missing Teen Texted Friend: 'I'm scared'

From The Huffington Post:

A Kentucky teenager who vanished after a suspicious house fire sent a string of texts to friends just before she disappeared, her stepfather told The Huffington Post on Tuesday.

Brookelyn Farthing, 18, was last seen June 22 at a home in Berea, a small city located about 40 miles south of Lexington. The morning Farthing disappeared, the home she was visiting was damaged by a small fire.

Prior to the fire, Farthing sent several text messages, including one that said, "I'm scared," according to her stepfather, Randall Walker.

"She started texting people to pick her up and give her a ride home," Walker told HuffPost. "She was texting her ex-fiance -- they were separated but still friends. He was at work and she texted him that he needed to come get her when he got off work. At 4:26 that morning, she texted him to hurry 'because I'm scared.'"

According to Walker, investigators told him that hours before the text message was sent, Farthing attended a party with a friend. She was supposed to ride home with that friend after the party, but the two got into an argument and the girl left without her.

"Another friend of hers was drunk and needed to get home," Walker said. "A gentleman known to Brookelyn's ex-fiance was at the party and he offered her his vehicle to give the boy a ride home."

From what information Walker has been able to gather from investigators, Farthing purportedly drove her friend home in the man's vehicle and then had to bring the vehicle back to the man's house -- a home with no electricity that was in foreclosure.

It was not long after Farthing arrived at the man's home that she started to text friends about needing a ride.

"There was another text was sent from Brookelyn's phone at 5:30 a.m., an hour before her ex-fiance was to get off work and come pick her up. The text said, 'Never mind, I'm okay. I'm going to a party in Rockcastle County,'" Walker said.

"I do not believe that was a text from Brookelyn," he continued. "I think something had already happened between the time she sent the text [in which she said] that she was afraid and that text. She had plans for the next day and would not have gone off to another party," Walker said.

At about 7 a.m., the owner of the home Farthing was visiting called the fire department and reported a blaze inside the home. The fire was extinguished before it got out of control, leaving a burned couch and a hole in the floor, police said.

Farthing was not inside the home when firefighters arrived on the scene. The homeowner allegedly told police that he had to leave and take care of a horse that morning. According to police, he said that, when he left, Farthing was sitting on the couch smoking. When he returned, she was gone and the couch was on fire.

Walker said something about the fire doesn't add up. "I don't believe Brookelyn set that fire," he said. "I think the fire was set to throw people off."

Trooper Robert Purdy, a Kentucky State Police spokesperson, said the fire plays a key role in the investigation into Farthing's disappearance, but did not elaborate. "The fire is a pretty integral detail in that investigation," he told HuffPost.

Aside from the texts and the fire, Walker said he finds it disturbing that some of his stepdaughter's belongings were found inside the home.

"She would dress up and she always made sure she had everything with her. She wanted to look good at all times," he said. "When Brookelyn went missing from that house, all her stuff -- her cowboy boots and her dress clothes -- was still there. Everything except her phone and the clothes she had on. She would not have left her clothes behind, so I know something happened there at that house."

The owner of the home where Farthing was last seen did not respond to a request for comment from HuffPost.

Authorities contacted Farthing's cell phone carrier and determined it last pinged on a tower in nearby Blue Lick, about 30 miles from where Farthing was last seen. The phone has not been turned on since.

According to the state police, authorities have searched more than 16,000 acres in three counties for the missing teen. They have scoured the land with cadaver dogs and searched bodies of water. Investigators have not said what, if anything, they have found during the searches.

"What we're doing is, we're following up on any and all possible leads," Purdy said. "Things are coming in every single day. It's a widespread search. Everywhere that we had information she could be has been searched already."

Authorities have not named any suspects or persons of interest in Farthing's disappearance.

"I can't release [the names of] any particular suspect or individual," Purdy said. "We've followed up on any and all individuals that could have been involved."

Walker, who Farthing has known since she was 4, said her family had to mark the first milestone without her Monday -- her 19th birthday.

"It's hard for the whole family," he said. "She is an outgoing girl -- an outdoors[y] girl and a tomboy in a way. She goes fishing and hunting, but when she wants to be a girlie girl, she is."

"We have no idea what has happened at all. I just know [authorities] are chasing leads and have an idea of what happened, but will not tell the family. I perceive that as something bad."

Brookelyn Farthing is described as a white female, between 5 feet 1 inch and 5 feet 3 inches tall, with blonde hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a gray Madison County FFA T-shirt and denim shorts.

"We hold out hope that she's coming back and we're going to continue to hold out hope until we find out otherwise. Please keep us in your prayers," said Walker.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police at (859) 623-2404.


I saw this online and wondered why the media wasn't talking about it on national news. After all, this is a beautiful white girl with a beautiful name, who went missing after texting her boyfriend, "I'm scared". It has all the properties of a great horror movie so you would think the media would be stumbling all over it. But apparently not because the first I heard of it was on the Huff Post. Above, you can read the post they published.

I found the story rather creepy and compelling so I wanted to go ahead and chart it. And when I did, I found a familiar pattern.

I drew up the first chart for the time of her earlier text to her boyfriend. It is assumed that this text actually came from her but not so much for the later text, which I will discuss farther into the analysis. The charts for 4:26 am show the first house ruler, Mercury, in the third house of communication. This placement often shows phone calls and messages as well as movement in vehicles or on local streets. Mercury is disposed of by the Moon in the seventh house. Dispositions show the purpose or intent of the subject and the seventh house shows partners, such as boyfriends. We know she is texting (third house) her boyfriend (seventh house) so the charts do dovetail with the known facts. This is important in determining viability. The person she is talking to or engaging with is her boyfriend, indicated by Jupiter in Gemini but you should also note that Jupiter is in the last degree of Gemini and that the seventh house cusp is late in Sagittarius and that both positions are about to change. What this tells us is that she may be talking to her boyfriend at that moment but that was about to change. Someone else was about to enter the picture. We will see who that person is shortly when the house cusps shift.

There are some creepy omens in this chart that portend what was coming. She is in someone else's home, a home that was dark and empty and foreclosed on, according to reports. Notice Neptune in the tenth house. The tenth house shows us the homes we are in when they belong to someone else (fourth from the seventh) and Neptune is a secret, something dark and mysterious. It seems to be a fact that little is known about this house even now. Uranus rules the tenth house as well and it is placed in the eleventh house in the sign Aries. Aries is a fire sign and we know the house was set on fire. I will discuss more about the eleventh house position later in the analysis. But the most important omen, for me, in this chart is the placement of Mars in the first house. This indicates an attack on this girl, somehow she is struck or assaulted. This is described even more clearly in the next chart.

The Moon is always the co ruler of the subject and in this chart you can see it right at the descendant. At the same time, Mars is crossing the ascendant and is in close opposition (8 minutes) to the Moon. She is attacked out of the blue and she resists (the opposition), possibly even fighting him off. Mercury rules the first, showing her to be young and probably younger than her assailant. His marker, Jupiter, describes somebody larger and possibly athletic or, at least, physically fit or strong. Mars is also conjoined to Jupiter in the first house, showing us that she was attacked by one person and definitely the person defined by the seventh house. The seventh house shows us the resident or owner of the home in question (the tenth is the fourth from the seventh) so the police should be looking for the owner or a squatter. Notice that Pluto is in the eighth house, often a marker for murder, but, in this chart, it has no power. In fact, over the next few charts I do not find a single marker for death and no death pattern. There is a very good possibility that Brookelyn is still alive.

The most interesting aspect I see in this chart for 5 am is the placement of Jupiter under the Sun's beams with the Sun ruling the fourth. This makes me think that this person who assaulted Brookelyn as also in some sort of danger.. the least of which might be the leading of a dangerous lifestyle or fraternizing with criminals. Another thought that comes to mind is that this person was in danger from the police and was hiding in this abandoned home to keep from going to jail.

This is the chart for the second text she supposedly sent but that no one believes she did. In other words, it is believed that someone else sent the text. We can assume her assailant used her phone and went through her phone book and then sent the text to her father to throw everyone off. Mars is just past the ascendant in the twelfth house which often reads as a head blow to me, somebody is assaulted and then they are knocked out. Seventh house ruler Jupiter in the first shows that some one was, indeed, "in her face" and the opposition from Jupiter to the co ruler Moon in the sixth shows us that the intention was for Brookelyn to disappear. She was to "never be found" in this agenda. The sixth house also shows sickness of some sort and can imply mental illness. In considering the source of the second text, please notice that Jupiter is closely conjoined the Sun and the Sun is ruling the third house of communication. The Sun also rules the fourth house and is disposed of by the Moon in the sixth. I am thinking now that the house was chosen for a reason, a place where she could "disappear" and that this was her assailants choice. And in this same chart we see Pluto suddenly becoming angular in the seventh house and disposed of by Saturn, which is now moving into the fifth. This looks like a sexual assault. At the very least, there was sexual attraction and at the best, romantic intentions. But I do not like Saturn ruling the eighth and moving into the fifth. Too many energies here imply sexual assault and death.

I think the girl was raped on the couch and the couch was torched to hide evidence. She was then removed from the house but I believe she was still alive. That is, if the charts are to be believed.

And the whole time, in every chart, the first house ruler remains in the second house of money and personal property. Mercury is conjoined Venus in Cancer so I am asking if there was something she was given that had romantic overtones and that involved family history? Such as a ring belonging to someone's mother. It is very likely that she was in possession of something sentimental that had value for her assaulter, who was a man who either found her attractive or chose her for some purpose. Node in the sixth house disposed of by Mars shows planning that involved this girls disappearance. In this chart, the node is also disposed of by Pluto, showing perhaps that the sexual assault was a part of the plan as well.

The fire was reported at 7 am. The chart for 7 am shows Uranus in Aries now in the tenth house. Nothing describes a fire more clearly than Uranus in Aries. The seventh house ruler is now Saturn with Saturn in the fifth. Pluto is right at the descendant. He not only believes that he loves this girl but he is going to take control over her and make her love him back. Seriously. Even if it involves physical violence or confinement (Pluto in Capricorn). Node in the fifth shows us long term romantic planning and with the Moon in the sixth, he would make sure she will never be found. Sagittarius implies long distance travel, in particular airplanes and trucks that travel over interstates. Saturn and the node are also disposed of by Mars in the twelfth house, which tells us again that he will carry all of this on in secret, he will do whatever he has to in order to keep this girl in hiding. He will even hide himself and give up whatever life he had. The twelfth house also implies that he has been confined himself in the past, either for mental illness or in a prison. The planets in Gemini are ruled by Mercury so it may well be that this person is mentally ill. Neptune in Pisces in the ninth house also indicates water and water vehicles such as boats. It is very likely that this person either owned or lived on a boat, had access to a boat, stole or commandeered someone's boat and took this girl off in the boat for a part of the trip. If there are open waterways with legs that go to other waterways, such as a river that crosses several states, then this passageway should be considered. Neptune indicates it would be easy for them to hide and not be seen if they traveled on a boat.

The chart for 7 am clearly tells us that by the time the fire was reported Brookelyn was long gone and would not be found. This chart tells us that she was taken on a highway or large waterway (Neptune rules the tenth from the ninth) to the northwest of the area (Pisces on the tenth) and in either a truck (Moon in Sagittarius) or a boat (Neptune in Pisces). Uranus in the tenth also describes a place of confinement such as a prison or mental institution, a work camp, a hideout and/or some place unusual and unexpected. He is no doubt confining her in some manner and possibly has an understanding of confinement from a personal history (in an institution). If there is a prison or mental institution in the area or a nearby area, northwest of the city perhaps, that is currently under construction or renovation, then look for marinas or truckstops in that area. Mercury rules the fourth and this would describe the subjects home. Mercury is in Cancer so this takes us back to water, waterways, boats and homes near the water. Movable homes most likely so more like trailers and RVs rather than brick and mortar homes which would include campgrounds and parks along the water as well. With the Moon in Sagittarius I would tend to think of campgrounds and parks as possible. Any place near the water (established Cancer and Pisces) where people may go to hunt game (Sagittarius). A lot of these charts end up in the woods and in wooded areas and many describe parks and campgrounds, which makes sense really. Most criminals who would abduct or kidnap someone would probably prefer to remain on the move.

Sometime between 8 and 9 am Uranus leaves the tenth house. I understand the fire was small and was put out within that hour. In this chart Uranus now rules the eighth house and Neptune resides in the eighth, showing that the fire was set to hide some sort of criminal activity, such as sex or death. There is no death pattern or other marker for death and the Moon is in the fifth house so my guess is still what I surmised a while back, that the fire was set to cover up the evidence of rape. There may have been body fluids on that couch that went up in smoke. If this man had been arrested and incarcerated in the past for rape he would know all too well that semen makes great DNA. But in the chart for 8 am the fire is almost out and the assailant is long gone with his victim. In fact, the seventh house ruler at 8 am is Saturn and it is in the fourth house. This, along with the Moon in the fifth, tells me that they have gone to some residence. Libra on the fourth house cusp is an air sign and indicates movable housing, such as mobile homes, trailers, boats or RVs and the like. Venus, which rules the fourth, is in Cancer, again leading me towards a boat. Saturn in the fourth house is in Scorpio and is disposed of by Mars, now in the eleventh. Mars is directly opposite the Moon in the fifth so it looks like forced sex is still going on; she is resisting but he is persistent. The eleventh - fifth house axis defines close relationships and mostly those that involve sexual relations. Mercury and Venus are in the first house so other young girls are in this same place, keeping company with Brookelyn.

Unlike many other sexual assault charts I have seen, this one no longer contains any references to money. Most often, it seems, that girls are taken for sexual slavery or for porn. These markers are not in this chart. I would expect them to be, I suppose, upon seeing markers for other girls in the same place. Men usually keep a stable of abducted girls for that purpose but this chart is somewhat different. This chart appears to define a pedophile or pervert who lives in a fantasy about romance and love. He imagines himself involved with the girls and that love is shared among them. I saw this in an earlier chart, where it seemed he would force the relationship if he had to and brow beat Brookelyn into "loving" him. I think this is the case. All of the charts seem to point to sex with romance rather than sex for money.

I will say this much. If I were searching for Brookelyn, I would start by following major highways in the first search, traveling northwest and looking for trailer parks, campgrounds, fish camps, RV parks, public parks and areas where people hunt and fish and I would pass around pictures of the girl. On the second search, I would follow major waterways traveling northeast and look for the same sorts of places and distribute her picture. It might be a lot of work for someone but I would make every effort to do this if it were me. I'm just saying.

The man who took Brookelyn is somehow connected with the man who owned the home. It was either the same person or the abductor was someone who knew the homeowner. The home may have been abandoned but this was either the owner or someone who knew about the home because he was either squatting there at that time or had access to the home. Because of this, the man who loaned her the car should be investigated. If he is cleared, then anyone he knew who either knew about the empty home or had access to it should also be investigated. I am going to say right now that I trust the police and I am sure that they have considered these leads. If not, then someone should prod them to do so.

The man here is defined by the markers present in the 8 am chart. This chart shows the abduction of Brookelyn and the taking of her to a remote location. This man is defined then by Saturn in Scorpio. He is older than Brookelyn and obsessive, possessive and jealous in nature. The exact trine from Saturn to Neptune shows someone who lives in a fantasy world, where women fall in love with him because of sex. His sexual prowess, in his own mind, is so great they eventually cannot resist him. He surrounds himself with younger girls (Mars in Gemini) and likes to act like their father and teacher (Pluto in Capricorn). He imagines himself as a guide and guru, a man who molds women into romantic ideals. Sex is powerful in this man's motivations. He imagines sex as the vehicle by which he captures and controls these young girls.

In appearance, he is very serious and dark. He always seems to be immersed in his own thoughts. He rarely smiles. He is secretive and shadowy in nature, his personality is hard to penetrate. When he does speak, he does so with gravitas, as if everything he might say would have tremendous meaning and importance. He is inwardly conceited and egotistical, believing himself to have a private superiority over almost everybody, mostly because he fancies himself a sexual powerhouse. But this is his private life and he does not share his feelings so this would go unspoken. In fact, most people would never imagine that he was a sex addict; he seems cold and distant and unflappable.

His features might be dark, in hair and eyebrows, but the eyes might be blue. Dark blue, perhaps. He would have pale, light skin with freckling and translucence. He would be thin and craggy to some degree, there will not be anything soft or plump about him. His work might be the kind that most people would not do, such as working in the sewer, with underground pipes, drainage and other plumbing work or the kind of work that involves cracking up rocks and stones, digging into dry and cracked earth, mortar blasting or chopping wood. I think a perfect blend of the energies would be something like installing sewer pipes in new construction, where digging has to go on but the work also involves sewage and water. These same energies may incline this man to bury the girls when he is done with them and there may be a graveyard somewhere with these girls. He has no doubt been doing this for years and has many victims. But I see nothing in these charts to indicate that Brookelyn is dead, at least not within the first 24 hours after she was taken.

  1. Hi Caroline,
    have you looked at the Novy Chandon case in Australia?
    It would be interesting to get your thoughts when you have time. Aileen
