Amber Berbiglia

Young Woman Murdered In Broad Daylight

From Court Junkie :

23-year-old Amber Berbiglia had just finished her college exams and was planning on getting married, when her life was taken from her in May 2013.

Amber’s body was found lying underneath the Robert Edge Parkway bridge in South Carolina a little after 4 PM on May 3, 2013. Her car was found nearby, still running, with her cell phone inside. The cause of death was ruled blunt force trauma to the head.

Eight months later, police are still searching for answers.

Amber’s last known whereabouts were at a Time Warner office on Main Street at around 1 PM on May 3. She was there to pay her cable bill. Before that, she had stopped at a gas station to fill up her gas tank.

WMBF News has uncovered surveillance video of Amber at that gas station from just hours before her death.

Amber was engaged to a man named Jose Tolsa Soler, who she had met while she was studying abroad in London in 2012. Jose was still in London working at a hotel when Amber was killed.

Could Amber’s case be related at all to the disappearances of Brittanee Drexel or Heather Elvis? Both girls have been missing from the same area as Amber was found. Could there be a connection between them? Or did Amber have an enemy who would have wanted her dead?


NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Eight weeks after 23-year-old Amber Berbiglia was found murdered, no arrests have been made. But police still consider this an active investigation.

Amber Berbiglia was last seen alive on May 3. Around 1:30 that afternoon, her friends say she was seen near the Time Warner Cable store on Main Street.

Hours later, her body was found less than two miles away under the Robert Edge Pkwy overpass.

Police rushed to the scene after getting 911 calls from a passerby and worked quickly to preserve what soon became the scene of a murder.

"When we arrived, we set a perimeter, so nothing is moved before Crime Scene has photos or video," explained Detective Jonathon Martin, the lead detective on this case.

As police worked to gather evidence, detectives arrived to inspect the area around Amber's body.

But what exactly were they looking for?

"Evidence. We were looking for evidence on how someone left the scene. It's pretty muddy around here, all the time. So, we looked for foot traffic," said Detective Martin.

While documenting the entire scene, they also looked for any trail leading to Amber's killer. Things like footprints in the mud, or if any objects were dropped as the suspect was fleeing the scene.

"People think DNA is everywhere, but sometimes it is not. In this case, we looked for it. We took DNA samples from around the area, from around the victim. We also looked around her car, and inside of it," shared Detective Martin.

But solving a crime isn't as easy as it looks on TV shows. It takes a lot more work, and a lot more time.


One of my readers sent me this case and I want to thank all of you who take the time to advocate for these victims. My blog has yet to make a big difference in solving cases but it has the positive effect of opening minds and motivating people to continue this work. There is hope here. I must say that most of these cases make me really sad. I can't do one a day or even more than one a week because they are so dark and heartbreaking. This case is a stand out, in my opinion, because she died so brutally in such a short period of time... it seems unbelievable and really scary. I did the charts on this and they are also unbelievable and really scary. I hope they help shed light on what happened to this precious girl and what can happen to anyone at any time, it seems. I am curious about the possible link between this girl's murder and the loss of Heather Elvis and Brittannee Drexel. I have profiled each of these other cases and found that their murders were personal. Elvis was killed by her lover and Drexel was pregnant. Drexel was killed to keep her from having the baby. At least, that's what the charts revealed to me at the time and I still stand by those findings. So I have to say I did not find a link.

This first chart just spilled out in front of me and I felt the sadness creeping in again. You can see the seventh house ruler in the eighth house right away, a proven marker for a criminal. This person is sleazy, dangerous and aggressive. Uranus in Aries, right away, describes a highly unusual person who does not live by convention. Rules do not apply and there is a good chance the cops are already aware of this man because he cannot keep his head down. He is always creating chaos. Uranus is disposed of by Mars, so you can see the aggression here. Now couple this with the first house ruler, the Sun, right near by in the ninth house. This is the time when this criminal crosses her path. It is obvious. Now, both her ruler, the Sun and Mars are disposed of by the tenth house ruler, Venus. This is what brings them together; they are in the same place at the same time. Venus is closely aligned with the most violent fixed star in the heavens, Caput Algol. This always describes brutality and bloodshed and has been prominent in many famous murder cases, mostly those that became famous due to their brutality. I understand this girl was beaten to death. Pluto rules the fourth house and is placed in the fifth; I am surprised she was not raped as well.

She came across this criminal not far from where she was last seen, at the cable company office. He may have been panhandling or otherwise begging, perhaps asking for cigarettes. This caused her to stop long enough for him to commandeer her and her car. There is no doubt she was carjacked. The ninth house, where they came together, describes a parking area near a highway. Mercury in Taurus describes cars but it might be that hers was the only one parked there; there were no other people. The Moon in the seventh shows Amber in this persons' company, for whatever reason. However, Neptune being present also indicates that there was illusion at play and she had no idea who she was dealing with. There is a probability that he was a con artist as well as a dangerous violent criminal.

I jump ahead to the time of the discovery to see how it ties together. I will run charts for the between time but I do believe these will be the most revealing. In this chart you see the first house ruler, Mercury, in the eighth house of death. This shows her dead. Saturn shows us her dead body and it is in the second house, close to the node. Saturn is in Scorpio. This bridge crosses the intracoastal waterway and Scorpio is a water sign. It usually describes deep water with big fish. But she was found on land, under the bridge, which is described by the second house. Since it is near the node, we can assume he planned it this way and chose this spot in advance. But I do not think he knew this girl. I think he has killed before and grabs opportunities when they arise, leaving bodies in certain places he considers special for some reason.

In this chart you also see the tenth house ruler is Mercury. This describes more of the scene; the tenth house rules the authorities and here the ruler is conjoined her ruler, showing the authorities with her body. They have come together on discovery. But also Mercury rules cars and underpasses and highways... etc.. and this is how and where she was found. She was beaten to death instead of being shot or strangled because Mars is in Taurus, the sign of the pugilist and is trine to Pluto in Capricorn, a marker for being beaten, mostly by tools. Pluto is a violent marker in forensic charts and the sign Capricorn rules wood, rock and other natural elements. He may have used a bat or other large stick.

Neptune on the seventh cusp while conjoined the Moon in the sixth tells me he was nearby when the cops arrived. He was actually watching all of it from a hidden place. The fourth house ruler (the current location) is Jupiter, the planet of joy. Jupiter is disposed of by the first house ruler, Mercury, in the eighth house, telling us that he enjoys / enjoyed killing. He got a real kick out of beating this innocent girl to death. It's hard for those of us who find joy and solace in love and compassion to fathom that there are those who find joy and solace in murder. But this man does. It is because of this that I believe he is likely a serial killer or, at the least, a repeat violent offender. He actually wasn't far from where her body was found (Moon within a few degrees of the seventh house ruler) but he was well hidden from view (Neptune).

This is the chart where the first house ruler, Mercury, first enters the eighth house of death. Still disposed of by Venus, with Venus close to Algol. Mercury opposes Saturn in Scorpio in the third house. She was beaten to death right there near the overpass after being driven (or forced to drive) around the area for awhile. I don't know if he was looking for a place to leave her or what, but at 3 pm, they arrived there at the underpass and he beat her to death and left her. Perhaps she thought he wanted to go there or be taken there for some reason. Perhaps she thought he was homeless and slept under the bridge. I wish I had been a fly on the window of that car. But you can see Mercury entering the eighth, the first sign of impending death, and opposing Saturn, a marker for her body, in the third house (the car). Saturn is retrograde so she did not die easily; with all the planets in physical Taurus it is probable that she fought back. The node in the third shows planning; he needed a car to pull this off and he waited for the right victim. Saturn is disposed of by Pluto in Capricorn just entering the fourth house. All the markers point to a brutal beating death that happened right there where he left her.

Now, how do we determine clues to his identity? We have already discovered that he was / is a criminal and that he is dangerous and has done this before. Similar crimes, I'm sure, have been investigated. There is something unusual about his appearance, most especially on the face and head. An unusual shape to the head, perhaps or marks on the face. He has a fighter's body, medium height, stocky build, thick hands. Uranus square Pluto describes someone with a chip on his shoulder, that would explode in anger easily for unexpected reasons. He is a hot head and has a rebellious personality.

This girl was murdered for no reason other than being in the same place as a dangerous killer. The police need to get this guy or other women are going to die.

Young Man Disappears From Back Yard

From Branson Perry :

Missing Since: 04/11/01
Missing from: Skidmore, Missouri
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: 02/24/81
Age at disappearance: 20
Height: 5’9″-5’10″
Weight: 140-155 lbs.
Hair Color: Blonde
Eye Color: Blue
Race: White
Gender: Male

Distinguishing Characteristics: Small faint scar on upper right cheek. Small scar on left knee. Normal teeth; wisdom teeth have been pulled. Right handed. Black belt in Hopkido, lifted weights. Medical Conditions: Racing heart condition. Allergic to Penicillin.

Clothing: Shorts (size 32) and a T-shirt (size medium to large).

Jewelry: Possibly wearing necklaces and leather trinkets or chains with arrowheads on them.


Perry was last seen in his home in the 300 block of west Oak Street in Skidmore, Missouri at 3:00 p.m. on April 11, 2001. He went outside to put some jumper cables in a shed. He was expected to be right back, but never returned and has never been heard from again. His family says it is extremely uncharacteristic of Perry to be out of touch with his family and friends for more than a few days. He was reported missing on April 17, six days after he disappeared. Perry left his van and all of his belongings behind when he disappeared. The jumper cables were not in the shed the first time police checked it, but two weeks later they were located in the shed just inside the door.

At the time of his disappearance, Perry lived with his father. His parents are divorced. His father was hospitalized on the day Perry disappeared, but due to come home shortly. Perry had wanted to make the sure the house was cleaned up before his father’s return, and had asked a friend to help him with that. Two men were also at the residence repairing Perry’s father’s car, which had a broken alternator.

Perry graduated Nodaway-Holt High School in 1999, and has been employed by a roofing company and a traveling petting zoo. He was unemployed at the time of his disappearance. Perry is a non-smoker and a weightlifter, and has a black belt in hopkido. No one has been charged in his disappearance, which remains unresolved. His father died in 2004, but his mother is still searching for him. Foul play is suspected in Perry’s case due to the circumstances involved.


I have been trying to analyze this case for years. The charts were cryptic at first, for some reason, and a lot of what they were saying was hard to align with the known facts. This is usually because of some rock that gets stuck in my head at some point. I got tangled up in the facts, which I try not to do, and unfortunately got trapped by assumptions. I started over several times over the past year and just kept getting lost. I blame myself for these meanderings because, in my experience, the charts are always concise and logical and it is my mind that just can't see it. Sometimes, when I go back months later, it all just stands out and makes sense but that is not always the case. There are lost items in my own home that I still cannot find, even as the charts appear to be clear. Of those items I have found after fumbling around for months, it is so obvious what the charts were saying that I am actually embarrassed. So please realize that even I, who do this all the time, can simply get lost in the details. I often make more of it than need be and this causes confusion.

To make a long story short, I went back at these charts and ignored what I thought I knew about this case. What I found this time was clearer to me and I hope it helps somebody out there to rest in their heart and sleep better at night, although the outcome in this case does not appear to be desireable.

This first chart was drawn for the time he was last seen, leaving the house for the shed outside to replace some jumper cables. Now, these cables were not returned that day but were actually returned days later. Branson disappeared after he left his home that day, presumably from his own back yard. My first suspicions where directed at the men who were there fixing the car. I mean, no one says who they were, who asked them to be there, what they say happened other than that they "never saw Branson". That just seems far fetched to me. He was supposedly walking to the shed, which was directly between the home and the place were they were working. How could they miss it? But on looking at these charts, I see that the men working on the car are shown by the seventh house ruler, Uranus, which is in the sixth house of work and service. There are no harsh aspects between the first house ruler and the seventh house ruler. In fact, there is a sextile between Uranus and the Sun. Uranus is in dignity and appears to have no other purpose in action other than to describe the work being done. Uranus rules electrical machinery, tools and wiring that is used in electrical work and this man was there fixing an alternator, an electrical component in a car. So this placement describes him perfectly and since I see no contact between Uranus and the Sun, I am daring to say this man had no contact with Branson, just as he claimed. But there are some other omens in this chart that make me quake. Look at Saturn, rising in the tenth, the highest planet in the chart, in fact. It is in 28 degrees of the sign Taurus, very close to the Pleiades and Caput Algol, some of the most violent fixed stars in the heavens, the Pleaides or "weeping sisters" being among the saddest. Saturn is also disposed of by Venus, which is placed in the eighth house of death. The first house ruler, the Sun, is in the sign Aries and is disposed of by Mars in the fifth. I find this disturbing because there was a serial killer who came forward late in this case and claimed to have raped and murdered a blonde man from Skidmore. He later claimed this was not Branson. But the markers in this chart describe just such an event. Mars in the fifth is often a marker for sexual assault and Saturn in Taurus describes a brutal death. Venus in the eighth also describes sexual contact and even more so because it is also disposed of by Mars in the fifth. I am now thinking that it is possible that Branson was kidnapped, raped and murdered after all.

I want to present some other aspects that stand out for me in this chart. We know that there were two men working on the car that day and one of them is described by Uranus in Aquarius. But there is another planet in the sixth house, not from the seventh house ruler, and that is Neptune. Neptune is disposed of by Uranus, showing us that this other man was there in the company of the first man. Neptune is closely trine to Jupiter, in the tenth house, and Jupiter disposes of Mars. Could this second man have been the abductor? It is highly possible that no one, even the first man who came to work on the car, knew anything at all about this second man, who I consider the "shadow man". Could this be the same man who claimed to kidnap, rape and murder a blonde man from Skidmore? Could he have taken off that day without anyone's knowledge and grabbed Branson on the way out? Everyone claims to have seen nothing and no one can account for the activity of the men who were working on that car. These charts are giving me a very real reason to consider this a possbility. That "shadow man" may have returned the jumper cables later to defer suspicion and to make people think Branson was still alive.

In this next chart I drew up, for an hour later, I see that Branson's marker, the first house ruler, is Mercury and it is in the eighth house of death. This is bad news. The ominous Saturn in Taurus is disposed of by Venus, still in the eighth and conjoined to Mercury. The twelfth house ruler (endings) is also in the eighth house. This type of planetary focus is a part of what I call a "death pattern". In this same chart, you can see the cluster of planets in the fourth house. Moon, Pluto and Mars. The Moon is the chart co ruler (a secondary marker for our subject) and with Pluto and Mars, there appears to be violence. The fourth house is ruled by Jupiter, which is in the sign Gemini, in the tenth house. This is a motel. Gemini implies temporary housing and can often mean a trailer or an RV or campsite. But in the tenth house, which implies a business, it is most often a motel. Not a fancy one, mind you, but a quick stop with few amenities. Gemini rules the tenth house and this house usually shows us the current location. The fourth house is a residence. I am thinking that this creep that took this young man was living in the motel. Pluto and Mars together like this can describe a violent altercation, one where someone is hurt badly. With these planets in Sagittarius and the fact that we know Branson was athletic and strong, was a black belt in martial arts, then we can imagine the fight that occurred in that motel room. Saturn in Taurus at the tenth house cusp with Saturn ruling the fifth, there was a plan to molest this man from the start. The node was in the eleventh so the plan was to friend him and then lure him. Perhaps the earlier exchange, with Branson hiding something in the kitchen and one of the men trying to find it later, was a part of their interaction that led to friending. But the presence of the node in the eleventh house of friends and disposed of by the Moon in that fourth house grouping, indicates that Branson was targeted.

The good news, I suppose, is that he did not live long. He was not held captive, tortured or used in porn. He was not sold into slavery. This young man was raped and murdered on the same day that he disappeared.

Now, the question still at hand is where to find his body. I am going to try to track the motions of the killer to determine what he did with Branson.

We noticed in the chart for 4 pm that Saturn was moving into the ninth house. This is usually the placement of the body in the perps car. Ninth house is the third from the seventh. In this chart, we see the Moon, Mars and Pluto now in the third. This also indicates a vehicle so I am pretty sure he put Branson's body into a car. The body appears to be in peices, as Pluto and Mars are with the Moon and they are all disposed of by Jupiter in Gemini. This looks like the body was in more than one peice and probably put in containers or bags. The first house ruler is moving from Mercury to Venus but it does not matter. Both of these planets are in the seventh, which tells us Branson is with his attacker and will remain in his possession. All of the seventh house planets are in Aries, disposed of by Mars, again showing the body is damaged by violence. All of the angles are changing rulers, which makes sense because the killer is preparing to get rid of the body and this will change everything.

Since April is late spring, almost summer, the time has changed and it is getting darker later. Not as late as in the summer but he would have to wait until at least 8 pm to be hidden in darkness. So I ran the charts for around that time and saw that they are showing movement at 8 pm.

In this chart you can see that the body, marked by Saturn, is now in the eighth house. We know he's dead but this also tells us that he is being "laid to rest" so to speak. Saturn is also disposed of by Venus, which is now the first house ruler, another descriptor that tells us this is our victim. Another marker for removal is the movement of the Moon from the third to the second house. In most cases I have seen the second house as a small area alongside the road, populated with small, slow moving, terrestial animals like reptiles, snakes, turtles and lizards. The Moon here is disposed of by Jupiter in Gemini so there may be other animals as well, those with hands and dexterity, such as squirrels, opossum, raccoons and similar fast moving critters. Gemini also describes birds. But all these planets in Sagittarius point to an area with high, sloping ground and some mountains but not the huge kind, just a smaller range. There may be camping areas, places where people hunt and fish and a shooting range nearby. There might also be a military base, a place where weapons and ammunition are stored, and local businesses specializing in weapons and taxidermy. There is a good chance that he burned the body, or at least some of the body, over a grill or in a fire pit. With the trine between the Moon and Pluto with Venus and Mercury in fire signs, there is a good chance the body was completely reduced to ashes. Jupiter in Gemini in the eighth may also mean that the body parts are scattered.

With both Uranus and Neptune in Aquarius in the angular fourth house, I would guess the body was dumped up high on a ridge or on the highest sloping ground in that area. Neptune also means it will be hard to find. Mars rules the seventh and is still in the third at the time of disposal so I would think he just tossed the parts out of the car as he went along. He drove off quickly. He did not spend any time at the dump site or having remorse or concern for the remains.

Now, here's the thing. The man who did this was someone who targeted Branson. I believe Branson went along with him or, at the least, was coerced. He may have been promised something and then was treated to a beating. This may have been a homosexual contact of some sort but I cannot say that for sure. But it does seem as if Branson knew the man who took him (however slightly) and went along with him at first. I think there was some degree of enticement that went on. This man may or may not have been one of the men working on the car that day. No matter what, Neptune marks him and this creates a "shadow" effect where it's hard to see the person in question. There was something deceitful and scheming about this man and Branson was fooled. Branson may have known him better than people suspect and this man may have come along while Branson was in the yard and called him over without anyone knowing. Neptune is highly deceptive and can mean almost anything. Neptune in Aquarius is one of the hardest placements to make sense of as this combines the rogue or eccentric elements of Uranus with the sneaky, conniving ones attributed to Neptune. This man was probably very unique in some manner and not like most other people. This would have been obvious when watching his behavior. His lifestyle was outside the norm. I do not see criminal activity with these placements so it's not like that but this guy was an odd personality with possible perverse desires. He could very well have had sexual abnormalities or even be of some other unexpected orientation. People would not know this about him; it would be a surprise. In fact, most things about this man would be surprising.

The placements by traditional reading would have him tall and thin with a long nose and spindly fingers. He would have translucent skin and appear amorphous at times, many people who know him would have a hard time describing him. He could be artistic or musical and might be in a fine arts occupation. Photography was probably a hobby as well as working on electronics. He would especially love video, music and other graphic arts, especially those that use electronic instruments or are played on a computer. This person would have little or no business sense and would not have a lot of money. Money would not be his motivation in life. He would dress in some manner that makes him stand out, either very modern and in vogue or very retro antique and out of date. He might have blue eyes. I hope this helps.
