Vale: Skeptic and psychic debunker Robert Lancaster

Robert Lancaster, noted American skeptical activist who created the website Stop Sylvia Browne, died on September 7 following a long illness from a stroke in 2008 and heart attack in 2011.

In 2008, Lancaster launched the website devoted to debunking clams made by 'psychic' Sylvia Browne. His investigations revealed many instances of Browne's psychic 'visions' being entirely wrong.
