Background

A description of the experience

Near-Death Studies magazine [2002 ]"Changes in Heart Transplant Recipients That Parallel the Personalities of Their Donors" [extract from Dr Paul Peasall's questioning of 150 heart transplant patients]

The most stunning example …. was found in an eight year old girl who received the heart of a ten year old girl. The recipient was plagued after surgery with vivid nightmares about an attacker and a girl being murdered. After being brought to a psychiatrist her nightmares proved to be so vivid and real that the psychiatrist believed them to be genuine memories. As it turns out the ten year old whose heart she had just received was murdered and due to the recipients violent reoccurring dreams she was able to describe the events of that horrible encounter and the murderer so well that police soon apprehended, arrested, and convicted the killer.
