Psychic Leads Police To Spot in Murder Vision in a Missing Child Case Only To Discover Another Body

Question: if you hire a psychic to find a body and she directs you to a different body, are you still obligated to pay a finder fee? Psychic Cheryl Carroll-Lagerwey is being given credit for directing police to a spot in a park in Australia in the search of a missing child. Instead, the police found the headless torso of an adult woman.

Carroll-Lagerwey is described as an “aboriginal elder” who told police: “I had a dream about a little girl being murdered and that her body was about here.”
Police believe the body is missing mother Kristi McDougall, 31.

  1. Lottakatz,
    Sheila’s Aussie slang for female. In the old time tradition, they’re of lesser value than real guys. I’m guessing about 30%.

  2. Mr. Ed, Body’s a Shelia 30% off… as opposed to what, a child (also female) or a male? Did I miss the joke or what?

  3. As I understand it, no money is involved when a psychic helps law enforcement. A reputable psychic won’t require money from anyone.

    Perhaps it’s been mentioned before, but profiling and psychic channelling seem to have some things in common. It would be interesting to see the statistics on the accuracy (or lack thereof) of both.

    If there is no psychic ability in anyone, Duke University has wasted a lot of time and money.

  4. I figure the fee as follows:
    Wrong body: 50% off
    Body’s a Sheila: 30% off
    Head missing: 10% off
    Fee is 10% of original.
    Take it or leave it.

  5. Can somebody help me with this:

    When you find a body here why is it not there instead of here or their? Did somebody need justification for a grammatical mistake and then they rationalized it this way?

    Or am I here instead of there but does that make a difference when I am there instead of here?

  6. Calling the psychic a charlatan is kind of harsh, there was a body there after all.

  7. *SIGH* – thank you all for point out my obvious blindness to how willing we, as a species, are to swallow BS whole 🙂

    I’m with Professor Hugo Farnsworth “I want to live on a different planet!”

    And yet police department all over the world use these charlatans who never provide any reliable advice and only rarely, and then totally by accident, lead to any actual conclusion. You would think that with a record of 1000′s of attempts & 0 success they would have abandoned this stupid ignorance by now.

    Come on, frankdawg, for centuries religions have been taking the funds of gullible believers and promising them life after death and thus far only one guy, the Dali Lama, keeps returning.

    In this country political parties have been taking the money of gullible followers promising them good government and giving the exact opposite in return.

    Scientology has received the blessing of the courts to hold slaves.

    And you would deny a few pagan psychics the right to scam the police? 😉

  9. millsapian87,

    Well may be in practicality it was Georgia that ended up that way and you are correct. But R.I. was the sewer state that took all of the banished folks from Massachusetts.

    Here is a tidbit about Australia,

    Van Diemen’s Land was the original name used by most Europeans for the island of Tasmania, now part of Australia. The Dutch explorer Abel Tasman was the first European to land on the shores of Tasmania. Landing at Blackman’s Bay and later having the Dutch flag flown at North Bay, Tasman named the island Anthoonij van Diemenslandt in honour of Anthony van Diemen, the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies who had sent Tasman on his voyage of discovery in 1642. Between 1772 and 1798 only the South East of the island was visited. Tasmania was not known to be an island until Matthew Flinders and George Bass circumnavigated it in the Norfolk in 1798-99.

    In 1803, the island was colonised by the British as a penal colony with the name Van Diemen’s Land, and became part of the British colony of New South Wales. In 1824, Van Diemen’s Land became a colony in its own right.

    The Stargate Project was the code name for a top secret US military operation that used remote viewing to gather intelligence on its enemies. …
    … military research into ESP was eventually shut down in 1995 – after 23 years and $20 million of US Government funding.

    don’t be silly frankdawg, where there’s smoke there’s fyre…;)

  11. GB,

    Not bad for a Penal Colony huh. Well the Catholic Church has a History there as well. They stole kids and took them to Australia to build the cache. When a missing persons report was filed with someone in the UK. It was investigated and then the parents et al, were told that the child was dead. All while knowing that the child had been kidnapped and taken to Australia.

    I believe that at one time Rhodes Island was a penal colony for the US. But then again, who knows, maybe the last person living wrote that….

  13. Evidently you can’t throw a cat in Australia without hitting a corpse.

    Not surprising when you consider how that sun-baked cauldron of heat is overrun with horribly befanged snakes, spiders ad scorpions. Not to mention the huge crocs and scimitar-teethed sharks constantly patrolling every inch of shoreline, both fresh water and salt.

    I won’t even mention that the place was founded by felons.
