Well, Ed Walters certainly did.

Outside of the article which talks about UM and the UM segment, I don't see any signs that this woman was seeking publicity or financial gain. And I don't know why she would decide to fake the story while she was seeing a shrink for weight loss.
This is a fair point. It could very well be this woman truly believed the spirit of a deceased sailor rested in her. It's a little more difficult for me to envision the therapist also truly believing the spirit of a deceased sailor rests in his client, but I surmise it's possible. I'm not sure if I think it's as likely as one or both seeking publicity or financial gain, however.

The only logical theory I can come up with is that she had a recurring nightmare as a kid about drowning (possibly a movie she saw about Pearl Harbor as a kid), and the hypnosis session brought this out. I can't explain the naming of John Gillespie though.
If I'm understanding it correctly, Sharon didn't mention that name until she was at the Arizona memorial, right?

Go Vols!
