Friends and family of the late Sara Niethe are outraged by a psychic’s claim she solved the case of her murder.
The case featured on TV programme Sensing Murder in 2008 and on the weekend one of the show’s psychics, Sue Nicholson, told 3 News it was the one case she solved.
Ms Niethe’s friend Rachel Mains says family and friends were astounded by the claim.
“We were really shocked and horrified,” she says. “The case isn’t solved and really Sue didn’t do anything to help.”
The psychic didn’t respond to requests for a second interview with this news outlet but stated she had been “misrepresented through editing”. In the interview with 3 News she was asked: “How many cases did you solve?” She replied: “Well, there’s one been solved – Sarah Neish.” Sneaky. Editing or wishful thinking? Regardless, it’s an ugly business.
