US woman’s ‘nightmarish’ mugshot scares social media

/ 07:49 AM May 09, 2017

A police mugshot of a woman in South Carolina has petrified social media with her bizarre black eyeballs.


After inviting a friend only to rob him of his money and cell phone, 24-year-old Morgan Joyce Varn was arrested by authorities on April 24. Varn, together with her companion Jonathan Mikael Robinson, was charged with kidnapping, armed robbery and damage to property.

In an eerie mugshot uploaded on Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page, Varn’s eyes and lips were dyed black while her face and neck were embellished with dark tattoos. It was unknown if she had undergone a tattoo procedure for her eyeballs or if she was wearing contact lenses. Her photo drew daunting remarks from social media users recently, with some urging exorcists to “help” Varn before it was too late.


“That’s cute, her eyes match her soul,” one user hushed.

Herald Online reported that Varn made headlines in 2015 after South Carolina firemen helped her give birth to her daughter.

Apparently, not all mugshots that had circulated online frightened people. Capturing hearts with his attractive then-viral mugshot in 2014, former bandit Jeremy Meeks anchored his way from prison to a promising modeling career.  Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
