The Water Turned To Blood
Background Text: Howl by Allen Ginsberg
The website contains a warning at the top informing the viewer that it was created by a mental patient, and the only content otherwise is an image with text in the top left and bottom right.
"FRANCESCA" is written in the capital letters in the text in the top left:
- being the witness of john of boston, who Found this Revelation on that time when the lord As a warning chose to turN the waters of the sea to blood when he Came upon the hand of god and the voicE of god which iS as the voiCe of rushing wAters, of mighty thunders
as well as in lower case twice in the text at the bottom right:
- fOr THE LORD SaID UnTO ME, THE cLOUDS SHALL WeEEP TEARs OF BLOOD AND THE SEAS TURN TO cRIMSON FOR OF MaNKIND HAVE I fASHIONED A BrIDGE BETWEEN HEaVEn AND HELL, BUT cAN YOU SeE THE BRIDGE Is cRaCKED AND THE END IS AT HAND.
Clicking the thumb of the presence opens up a password prompt. The password was obtained by finding the source of a bible passage (King James translation) quoted by John Ferminger in Appendix 3 of his psychological report in the Judson Ogram Correctional Facility case files. The passage is from Ephesians 6:12, and when the reference is entered as the password it leads to this page.
The author of the website calls himself "John of Boston". He was with his daughter on the Zakim Bridge at the time the river water turned red. There was an accident on the bridge that pushed his car into the water. He could not save his daughter and had a religious experience while in the water, claiming to have seen The Presence. John then started preaching to people about his experience and began to get a pretty big following. He was arrested and was released on bail for conducting an unapproved crowd of more than 20 people. While out on bail, he was arrested again for the same crime. The officers allowed him to finish preaching for fear of a riot. He was put into Judson Ogram Correctional Facility for his crime. Dr. Gantry seems to be a possible follower of John as he tries to tell him that if John doesn't publicly repent on his preachings, he will be killed. He showed some sort of interest in Dr. Gantry's partner, Francesca, and it is suggested he is projecting her as a surrogate for his daughter.
John is prescribed Flupentixol, an antipsychotic that lasts up to 4 weeks from a single injection. His prescribed dosage, however, is 20mg every 10 days.
The bridge in the picture is just outside of Edinburgh in Scotland(U.K.). It is the Forth Rail bridge.
