Three Missing Children In Indonesia Abducted By ‘Bunian’?



The disappearance of three children in North Sumatra, which is controversial in Indonesia, sparked a clash between police and shamans until authorities banned all paranormal activities in the district to restore peace.

Police Sub-Inspector Sukadi, the head of the intelligence team that coordinated the search for the three children, said that many paranormal investigators across Indonesia visited the village of Naman Jahe in Langkat to assist in the search.

“We had three weeks of rituals, none of which produced results. The parents of the children were at risk of further psychological trauma as the shamans often recorded the events and uploaded them to their YouTube channels,” he said.

The three missing children are Alfisah Zahra, and Nizam Aufar Reza who are both seven years old, and Yoghi Tri Herlambang who is 8 years old. They have been reported missing after playing near their home since October 18.

“I went to get them so that they could come home and have a bath before lunch,” said Masdiani, Zahra’s mother.

When her daughter and the two boys were not found, she considered them to go to the lake where the children used to swim but were not found.

The three families and neighbors continued searching and called the police late that afternoon.

As soon as the news of the incident spread, a number of shamans from the district appeared to perform various rituals at the last location where the three children were seen including in oil palm plantations and lakes.

“They said that the children were taken by a bunian into the forest and hidden there,” said Susilawati, the mother of Yoghi.

“We believe that they may have been kidnapped, but we believe more in the bunian theory,” she added.

Initially, only local shamans or better known as dukun were involved in search activities.

However, as soon as the news of their disappearance was published in the mainstream media, many shamans from all over the country began to arrive in the village.

The village head, Jumaan said, too many shamans were in the area causing the locals to be uncomfortable.

“Every time they performed a ritual, the paranormal investigators asked for the children’s clothes so they could channel their spirits and find their whereabouts. In the end, the parents did not have any clothes left because of the rituals,” he said.

One shaman from the village, Supeno said that the rituals performed did not bring results because most of the shamans were not united, causing the local ‘spirit’ to be angry.

He said he also believed that the local creatures who ‘took care’ of the area, including bunian and other spirits, refused to cooperate because they were not happy when there was an increase in paranormal activity.

Sukadi said the authorities did not rule out the possibility that the three children were abducted or had an accident around the village which was covered by oil palm plantations and thick forests.

Another possibility, he said, was that they might drown in a nearby lake. However, the search in the lake has been done three times by divers from the Basarnas team and found no clues.

“Bodies usually float to the surface after a few days if people have drowned, so we would have expected to have found the children by now if they were in the lake,” Sukadi said.

“We are surprised that we have so few leads in this case,” he added.

The search for the three children is still ongoing and all parents also believe their children are still alive.

GTA 6 Rumored To Have A Female Protagonist, First Time Ever For GTA Franchise




GTA 6 reportedly would have a female protagonist, a first for the Grand Theft Auto franchise. GTA 6 has yet to be confirmed by Rockstar Games or to confirm that a new game in the series is in progress. However, according to a plethora of sources, for the PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and probably the PC as well, GTA 6 is already deep in development.

GTA 6 is closer to release than you thought or still very far away from release, depending on what article or rumor you’re hearing. Unfortunately, no further information on the release of the game has surfaced right now, but we do have a new update on the protagonist of the game, courtesy of Tom Henderson, a leaker and industry insider well known for his Call of Duty scoops.

Henderson recently announced on Twitter that, alongside a playable male protagonist, GTA 6 will have a playable female protagonist. This is, unfortunately, where the scoop ends.

In other words, it is unclear if the game would turn between two protagonists that players can switch between or if it is a situation for Cyberpunk 2077, i.e. one playable protagonist who can be male or female.

You’d think it’s former in the light of previous releases, but if Rockstar Games is going to break convention and eventually have a female protagonist, it might be ready to break additional conventions.

It’s important to remember that Henderson did not disclose his source. That said, in the past, he has proved reliable on numerous occasions, although it has usually been with Call of Duty details.

Although the reporting of Henderson has never been limited to Call of Duty, it’s what he’s known for, so take this with an extra grain of salt because it’s not only unofficial but out of the wheelhouse of Henderson. And, of course, even though the report is 100% correct, it is subject to change as well.

This isn’t the first time we’ve learned the game is going to have a playable female protagonist for what it’s worth, however, so far, this has been the most reliable source for making this argument.

At the moment of publication, Rockstar Games has not commented on this story in almost any capacity, and it’s uncertain this will change. Like many developers, when it comes to rumors, news, leaks, or any knowledge of this variety, Rockstar maintains a rather strict “no comment” policy.

Lady Gaga And Jennifer Lopez To Perform At Joe Biden’s Inauguration Ceremony




Jennifer Lopez and Lady Gaga will take the stage in the U.S. The inaugural ceremony in Washington next week by President-elect Joe Biden alongside others in what his transition team said would showcase a diverse America.

The two will perform for the new 46th U.S. president at the Jan. 20 gathering, which will also include comments from a Georgian black firefighter, a former Youth Poet Laureate, a Catholic priest, and a pastor from Wilmington, Delaware, Biden’s hometown.

The national anthem will be sung by Lady Gaga and a musical performance will be given by Lopez.

“They represent one clear picture of the grand diversity of our great nation,” his team said in a statement on Thursday.

The presenters reflect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’s “steadfast vision of a new chapter in our American story in which we are an America united in overcoming the deep divisions and challenges facing our people, unifying the country, and restoring the soul of our nation,” it added.

Their positions come as the Democrat takes over the White House from Republican Donald Trump in a scaled-down event after a mob of Trump supporters threatened the United States in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rising of security concerns. Capitol to thwart the certification of Biden’s victory by lawmakers.

On the West Front of the Capitol building, now fortified by fencing, barriers, and thousands of National Guard soldiers, the public would not be on hand to witness the swearing-in.

Biden’s transition team cited Lady Gaga’s advocacy of LGBTQ rights and health concerns in announcing the inauguration speakers, and Lopez’s work raising awareness about the adverse effects on Latinos of coronavirus.

Many representatives include Fulton County, Georgia, career firefighter Andrea Hall and 2017 National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, a resident of Los Angeles. Father Leo O’Donovan, former President of Georgetown University, and Reverend Dr. Silvester Beaman of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, both close to the Biden family, will talk as well.
