Cold Hollow Husks...

...that appear to be human and prey like lampreys upon those of us with souls are more common than is generally assumed.

This is an extreme example

I must say though that this story really is a perfect storm of crazy.
In my (admittedly limited experience) fandom in particular seems rife with this sort of thing.

NIGHTS TEMPLAR NOT HERITICS!!!

DATELINE VATICAN CITY:

The order of the Knights Templar has been absolved of heresey!

It now appears that most of the acusations against the Knights Templar were part of an elaborate scam perpetrated by a French King (Phillip the Fair) who owed them money (and later went on to persecute French Jews).

Fortunately the Vatican has gotten to the bottom of this scandal and cleared their names (of that charge at least).

It only took them....700 years.

More here here and here.
