Madeleine McCann And The Psychic Mass Murderer Of Liberty Texas

by | 9th, June 2011

LEO Hickman wants to know the answer to this question: “Do the police use psychics to help them?”

He asks in light of a psychic who told police in Liberty, Texas, that 30 bodies men, woman and oh, dear god children were buried in a pit.

The media went nuts. The AFP even spotted the actual blood and guts:

Texas police, acting on a tip-off, Tuesday found a mass grave containing “a lot of bodies,” including the corpses of children, US media reported.

The Liberty County sheriff’s office was combing the area after being told 25 to 30 dismembered bodies, many of them possibly children, were buried outside a house at the intersection of two roads, the Houston Chronicle said. “A lot of bodies” had been found on a property in Hardin, Texas about 50 miles (31 kilometers) northeast of Houston, a law enforcement source told CBS television.

Only, there were not bodies.

You could hear the wails of disappointment at the world’s news desks. Texas plus bodies equals news lovely blood-soaked news.

Back to Hickman:

The story poses a question that has long hung over the police: do they ever use psychics to assist them? The routine answer has always been “no” and there seems to be little evidence that they do. But, as this week’s case shows, the police are routinely contacted by psychics offering leads, especially during high-profile cases, and sometimes act on the information.

We know. Can you think of one such case..?

In 2007, for example, Portuguese police said they were following up on leads offered by local psychics in the hunt for Madeleine McCann and had two dossiers of apparent visions and sightings of Madeleine.

Apparent visions… Take Brian’s Predictions.
