Noreen Renier wore a dark outfit and stood in front of a white backdrop, then asked the crowd she was standing in front of to focus on a spot in between her eyes, on her forehead. She asked them to focus there intensely and the crowd did as they were asked. Renier then stepped out of the area she had been standing in and a negative image of her remained in that spot; how was this possible?
Could it be that the crowd was able to “see” her energy? 77-year-old Renier is a semi-retired psychic who had been invited to give a lecture about her history and her psychic gifts. She told the crowd about how she worked as a psychic detective for over 40 years and assisted the authorities in locating missing people.
She made it very clear that although she was a detective, she did not solve crimes, she simply helped them out whenever she could. She was helpful to the police because they use the logical part of their minds, and Renier does not. She told the crowd

Renier’s lecture was held at the Cocoa Beach Public Library, and had an attendance of about 40 people. They learned a lot about her as a person, and about her psychic abilities, which include predicting the future, remote viewing, and channeling.
She told the audience about a time when she helped investigate the death of a horse. She said that she was given a piece of the bullet that was taken from the horses’ body to study it and she held the piece and reflected on it.
Within seconds, she got a vision of the horse owners’ ex-wife. She discerned that the ex-wife shot his prized racehorse as a way to get back at him for marrying a woman who was much younger than her.
The audience gave a collective “Oh”. One woman asked, “She didn’t put the horse’s head in his bed like in ‘The Godfather’?”
Renier does not take on many cases now that she is semi-retired. She said that the last case she had helped with was the Laci Peterson case. This was a high profile murder that happened in Modesto, California in 2002. She assisted her family in figuring out exactly what happened to Laci.
Unfortunately, Renier does not always get feedback from her work, and doesn’t have an actual number as to how many cases were solved thanks to her. There are letters of recommendation and testimonials on her website, but there are also websites that criticize her work.
“We use what resources are available,” said Michael Hunt, Assistant State Attorney. Even though a psychic’s testimony is not enough to be granted a search warrant, and cannot be used as evidence in the court room, authorities find that they can be a very helpful investigative tool.
One of the attendees was a 75-year-old woman named Martha Masiello who states that she was very impressed by Renier. She acknowledges that even though there are a large number of psychic “entertainers” and imposters, there are also some who truly do have a gift and feels that Renier is one of them.
“Do I have some doubt that 100 percent of what she says is true? Yes, I do have some doubts, which is normal”Martha Masiello
Renier told the crowd of how she had a skeptic follow and stalk her one day while she was out enjoying a meal. “Enjoy your life, but leave me alone,” she said, referring to the skeptics. The audience had many questions to ask her and she left the lecture feeling exhausted. She said that when her work gets too intense, she relaxes by enjoying a glass or two of wine.
She also smoked for several years and had lung cancer that she had to have surgery for years ago. Just recently doctors found a different spot, which causes them concern. She says that if it is cancerous, she is more than likely just going to leave it alone and not do anything about it. “I’m just going to die,” she says.
Jim McCormick was also an attendee at her recent lecture and says that he had previously met Renier in Florida at a class she gave a demonstration to at the Sante Fe Community College. McCormick says that Renier took half of the class aside and showed them a picture of Tina Turner, then asked them to join the other half of the class that had not seen the image and mentally project that image to them.
McCormick was in the half that had not seen the picture and says that when they began mentally projecting the image, he was able to see shapes, including the edge of the frame in which the picture was in and a little bit of the outfit Turner was wearing in the image.
“It was amazing, as a group, how we could get pieces, parts of this picture,” says McCormick.
