Ten-month-old Lisa Irwin went missing October 4 from her home in Kansas City, Missouri, and is presumed to have been kidnapped. The case attracted nationwide attention, sparking an Amber Alert and several massive searches including of the neighborhood and a nearby Kansas landfill -- twice.
Weeks came and went without an arrest, clue, or even a suspect. Enter Stephanie Almaguer, a woman in Dallas, Texas, who claims to be psychic. Almaguer said that information about Baby Lisa's death came to her in a vision, and she sketched the area she saw. That sketch was later circulated to the family, police, and volunteer searchers. About a week ago dozens of volunteers searched for Baby Lisa in an area roughly described by Almaguer, in some woods near a closed casino about two miles from her parent's home. They found nothing. Almaguer appeared in many media outlets including Fox News. Doug Magditch of KDAF-TV described Almaguer’s involvement in the case—and a strange twist:......
Despite claims to the contrary, there is not a single documented case of a missing person being found or recovered due to psychic information.
Says it all really If even a portion of what "psychics" claim were true, most missing children would be found, murders would be solved earlier and life-threatening events would be avoided.
