A psychic and an investigator walk into Texas…

Psychic, investigator to join search for Hailey Dunn » Abilene Reporter-News.

A psychic who has appeared on television programs and an investigator with decades of experience will join the search for missing Colorado City teen Hailey Dunn.

On June 1, psychic Gale St. John and investigator Gary Peterson will arrive in Mitchell County and spend five days searching for the girl, who was last seen in December 2010.

“We’ve been trying to get them out here for a while now,” said Holly Jenkins, a volunteer searcher from Midland. “We’re very excited that some private donations have made their trip possible.”

So, let me get this straight… An actual investigator AND a TV psychic are called in to help with this case. WHO do you think will really help? The person looking for clues or the person claiming they get visions?

Every time one of these stories comes up, and it IS often, the psychic gets major publicity when she hasn’t done a thing. Since no psychic ever has provided information that directly led to solving such a case, I suspect it was a good idea to get the investigator to come with her.

    I believe I have read that no criminal case has ever been solved by or with the assistance of psychics. I find it amazing that people in positions of power and trust still use these methods. It wasn’t all that long ago that someone commented on Sharon’s site about the effectiveness of dowsing/waterwitching in, I think, Virginia. Psychics and dowsers seem like the same sort of people to me and I wonder why these things persist. Even the percieved(mistakenly) perception of success must be low to non-existant.

        No, there has not been ONE case in which the psychic (psycho rather) has actually solved a case. The one you are referring to did not solve the case.

    “Volunteer searcher” Holly Jenkins has her priorities twisted. She should be getting paid and not some con artist.

    Why is it that psychics don’t win the state or regional lottery? It should be a piece of cake for them; it’s not like life or death or anything.

      Psychics say they are forbidden to use their gifts to make money. Just ask Sylvia Brown, she’ll tell you. Of course, it will cost you $850 for 30 minutes.

    There have been NO DOCUMENTED CASES in which the psycho’s “visions” or other babble has directly solved ANY criminal or missing persons case. NONE. Why on earth any law enforcement agency would take the word of a psycho and bring along the press is absolutely inconceivable. I hope the sue the pants off all involved. Unfortunately, there probably is no recourse against the psycho in this case. It would be paramount to suing a child who gave the same information. No, it’s the law enforcement agencies who acted upon this information that are culpable.
