Sylvia Browne

World Famous Psychic DEAD

11/20/2013 6:13 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

World famous psychic Sylvia Browne -- who appeared on all sorts of TV shows including "Montel" "Larry King Live" and "Unsolved Mysteries" -- has passed away .. TMZ has learned.

Browne specialized in psychic detective work, and attempted to help on several missing person cases ... with varying results. 

Browne's son, Chris, tells TMZ ... Sylvia passed away this morning in San Jose, surrounded by family and friends.  She was 77.

Browne most recently took heat after famously announcing that Amanda Berry had died after she went missing in 2003 ... because, as we all know now, she wasn't dead.  Sylvia chalked up the misinformation as a simple mistake.

The following message was just posted on Sylvia's Facebook page, "Sylvia graduated today. She was surrounded by family and friends. What a legacy. She shared so much. We will carry on her knowledge with hypnosis and Journey of the Soul and her many books. What a great party they must be having on the Other Side. Bless everyone."

First of all I just want to say that I am tired of people calling sylvia brown a fake. If people know anything about psychics , they would know that they are never 100% they can be 10% or 20% or 50% maybe even 85% accurate! But never 100%.. Just because was wrong about a couple cases shes been called a fake! I am sick of this negative world no one has spoken much about how much this lady has helped a lot of people and solved a lot of crimminal cases ...including writing books to help people...she even built her own church! My guess is that people only derive on what is negative it's like if you do something wrong in this world the world holds a gun up to you but when you do good its like no one notices you! So sad! Well regardless of what people think she is no longer in this wicked world!

The fact that there are psychics is a reality. Another reality is that some psychics are more accurate than other psychics. I do believe Sylvia Browne was a genuine psychic. What makes me believe this? Because I watched a couple of psychic shows where Sylvia help aid police in solving murders. She did make some big (televised) mistakes unfortunately but she was a genuine psychic.

Sylvia Browne even admitted herself on a Montel Williams show that she is only about 80% accurate. No psychic is 100% accurate. Other psychics have said that as well.
