Snow Hill, MA: Karen Hurley didn’t hesitate to reach out to two psychic sisters when her niece Christine Sheddy disappeared in November of 2007.
Hurley heard about the psychic sisters through someone in her family who had previously worked with them on a different case. After six weeks of searching for 26-year-old Sheddy and coming up with nothing, Hurley decided to call the psychics.
“Right off the bat, they started telling me things that had happened. I didn’t even have to say a word. Christine was coming through and talking to them, guiding them. They described her tattoo to me and told me what had happened. It was eerie because of how much they knew,” said Hurley.
The first sister Hurley talked to, Suzanne Vincent says that she began getting a read of Sheddy’s situation from the very first phone call. She could tell that Sheddy was a blonde with a thin build and that something terrible had happened during a struggle between a woman and two men.
“Then I heard the name Tia shouted as vividly as could be from my spirit guides,” she said. “I said, ‘Tia has dark hair, and she has a connection with the short male. They’re cousins, and he’s the meanest.’”
Over two years after that phone call, detectives would track down a woman by the name of Tia Johnson, her boyfriend Clarence “Jr” Jackson, her cousin Justin Hadel.
Johnson’s cousin and boyfriend were later found guilty of Sheddy’s murder in the first degree. Police arrested Johnson on accessory charges. The investigation revealed that the two men had fatally beaten Sheddy.
Suzanne Vincent described the feeling she got from those two men; “I was actually fearful of them. Their energy was the worst I’ve ever felt. They were some pretty dangerous people.”
The Psychic Sisters Shared What They Picked Up
Suzanne and Jean McKenzie Vincent shared their visions with Sheddy’s family. This valuable information assisted the authorities in solving the case and convicting her murderers.
Sheddy’s mother, Lynn Dodenhoff, feels that the sisters’ visions helped uncover the truth of what happened. Dodenhoff believed in the sisters, even when prosecutors and police were uncertain about the information they were giving the family.
“As far as the information they gave me, a lot of it was spot-on, especially as far as where they found her body. Two males, Hispanic, one of them having light eyes? You don’t just pull that out of a hat. I believe they have a gift; I really do,” she said.
When people approach the sisters for assistance in missing person cases, they do it of their own free will. They don’t accept payment at all.
“I know there are people out there that take advantage of the families of missing people. They give them false hope. But these ladies never asked for a dime, ever, and that really means a lot. They genuinely just want to help,” said Dodenhoff.
For those that doubt them, the sisters keep proof that their unique abilities provided important information about the Sheddy case. They have email correspondences sent to each other early on in the case before police started to assemble their investigation. The emails contain important clues that came to them while using their remote viewing and clairvoyant skills.
Suzanne and Jean McKenzie Vincent live in Butler County, Pa, and are in their early fifties. They state that their gifts are with them around the clock, and they constantly capture auras around them. The sisters work as a team, with Suzanne being the one who hears things and Jean receiving visions, as clear as if she is watching a movie.
Anyone Can Be Psychic, Say The Sisters
Jean compares their gifts to that of a musician; while some have incredible natural skills, others become professionals by constantly practicing. She doesn’t think their gifts are rare and believes many people have them. They just don’t know or haven’t mastered them.
“What we’re doing, it’s working,” says Jean. “We’ve been told by police many times, ‘what you just told me was privy to only the killer and us.’”
Prosecutors discovered the motive behind Sheddy’s murder. Sheddy was sleeping with Tia Johnson’s boyfriend, Jackson. She started wanting more of a relationship and when she told him this, he rejected her. Sheddy threatened to tell Tia what had happened between them. Authorities believe that Jackson killed Sheddy to keep Tia from about the affair.
Hurley received valuable information from the Vincent’s from her very first phone conversation with them. She states that the sisters were able to describe Sheddy correctly and that they were able to tell that she had two sons. They also told her they had a vision of Sheddy getting stabbed with a knife and then rolled into a rug.
In a different reading three days after the first, the sisters gave Hurley even more valuable information. They told her that Sheddy was buried in a shallow grave located near a group of bungalows. They also said the grave was near a body of water with a boat dock and a sign.
Suzanne Vincent states that in the beginning, investigators ignored the information they gave them. They believed Sheddy had decided to run away and pursued that possibility instead.
“If the police had done their job with the notes we gave Lynn, they could have found the suspects,” Jean McKenzie Vincent states. Suzanne Vincent adds, “you still need law enforcement to get the suspect. We’re just another tool.”
The Sisters Had A Hard Time Getting Police To Listen To Them
Police finally found Sheddy’s severely beaten body in a hole only 18 inches deep in February of 2010. It was on the grounds of a bed and breakfast called River House Inn. Police believe that Jackson picked this location to bury her body because he had previously worked there on a landscaping job.
The first member of law enforcement that Suzanne Vincent ever talked to and that listened to her instead of dismissing her was Detective Alex Kagan of the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation.
Even though Kagan was only given general information about Sheddy’s body by the sisters, he still wanted to keep an open mind about what they were telling him. However, he feels that they were never really able to specify precisely where her body was. They only knew things like her body being buried near water by an A-frame house.
Kagan doesn’t believe that the sisters’ information provided any direct assistance to the case.
“I don’t want to make it seem as if it’s some scam- they’re sincere in what they believe,” says Kagan.
“It feels like having a weight lifted off my shoulders,” says Dodenhoff about her daughter’s killers being caught and convicted.
“They didn’t solve the case, I mean, I know that,” she says, “but if law enforcement had just sat down to listen to them, maybe they would have found her earlier.”
