Psychics claim their tips would have solved a murder before police but police didn’t listen. The police say otherwise.
Suzanne Vincent said at first investigators dismissed their findings and instead pursued a scenario where Sheddy had simply run away.
“If the police would have done their job with the notes we gave Lynn, they could have found the suspects; if they’d just done a little background research,” said Jean McKenize Vincent.
“You still need law enforcement to get the suspect,” Suzanne Vincent said. “We’re just another tool.”
Kagan wanted to be open-minded to what the psychics had to say, but they offered nothing specific, only generalities — “she’s near water, she’s near an A-frame house” — when it came to pinpointing where Sheddy’s remains had been buried.
Ultimately, according to Kagan, the sisters provided no information that directly assisted with the case.
“I don’t want to make it seem as if it’s some kind of scam — they’re sincere in what they believe,” Kagan said.
“They didn’t solve the case, I mean, I know that,” Dodenhoff said. “ But if law enforcement had just sat down to listen to them, maybe they would have found her earlier.”
The Vincent sisters work as a team — Suzanne hears things, and Jean gets visions – using clairvoyance or remote viewing. They say their special senses are always on. “Auras are all around them at all times.” (Whatever that means.)
They also say they’ve kept early email correspondences containing “markers” that prove they had key information before police.
The emails may be useful but after the fact, they can be interpreted in a more favorable light. That post hoc reasoning is too subjective to be certain. Also, there is good reason to believe the detective who said they were not specific enough to actually follow up on.
However, the sisters appear to be a good candidate for testing since their powers are always “on”, to see if they can perform their skills above chance.
