A palm reader is accused of stealing roughly $71,000 from a client after convincing the woman that her daughter was possessed by a demon, Somerset Police say. 37-year-old Tracey Milanovich was charged with six counts of obtaining property over $250 by trick, larceny over $1,200 and intimidation of a witness.
On December 17, Somerset Police launched an investigation into Milanovich after a resident reported that she tricked the resident into giving her large sums of money. The investigation led police to believe that Milanovich convinced the victim that her daughter was possessed by a demon, and that cash and household items were needed in order to banish the spirit from her daughter.
Police say Milanovich was found to have stolen approximately $71,000 from the victim and the victim additionally purchased multiple household items for her, such as towels and bedding. She was arrested on December 27 and arraigned Monday at Fall River District Court.
Milanovich operated Tracy’s Psychic Palm Reader on County Street. Anyone who believes they have been victimized by Milanovich is asked to contact Somerset Police Officer Donald Cormier at 508-679-2138.
