The "Suicide Squad"Image: warner bros Everyone’s still talking about the craziest thing that happened at the Oscars on Sunday: Suicide Squad winning one.

Records show he was using sodium amytal and may have been employing “narcoanalysis” – a military method for treating servicemen with repressed traumatic experiences, which was largely abandoned after World War Two. This evidence, combined with a lack of published research and few medical records, have led to Dr Milner’s methods being called into question. Many former patients have spoken of the trauma of the process, with some claiming to have had false memories of abuse suggested to them and even been sexually abused by Dr Milner. But new research has shown there was a system for bringing children, particularly girls, to Aston Hall. Image caption Former
