The Investigation Discovery show “Six Degrees of Murder” is going to feature the psychic sisters who helped police solve the murder of Christine Sheddy.
The show will be dedicated to Sheddy’s death and the Pennsylvania-based “Psychic Sisters” Jean Vincent and Suzanne will be included in the list of guests who will make an appearance. The duo helped the police using their psychic intuition and premonition.
“When I do this, I volunteer, which means I don’t charge anyone, family or police, for my time,” said Suzanne Vincent.
Vincent tells about how Lynn Dodenhoff, Sheddy’s mother, reached out to her after some of her family members told her about how she assisted the police in the murder case of dentist John Yelenic back in 2006.
“When she had reached out to me, I knew she was gone,” said Vincent. “But I also kept getting of two names; ‘Tia’ and a second with a ‘J’, Junior or Justin.”
Sheddy, 26-years-old at the time, was living with three other people in a farmhouse in Pocomoke City in late 2007. The names of these three other people are Clarence Butch Jackson- 33, Justin Hadel- 17, and Tia Lynn Johnson-26.
Jackson and Johnson were a couple, but Jackson was also having sexual relations with Sheddy. Sheddy wanted more from the relationship and proposed to Jackson that they become exclusive but Jackson refused her proposition, which then angered Sheddy. In her anger, she allegedly threatened to tell Johnson of their sexual relationship. It is believed that at this point Jackson told Hadel to “finish her off.”
Hadel killed Sheddy by hitting her with a two-by-four board three times, breaking every single bone in her face below her forehead. Jackson and Hadel then buried her body in a shallow grave near the farmhouse in the woods. The three roommates moved Sheddy’s body later to Snow Hill. They buried her between a guesthouse and the fence line at the River House Inn, a place Johnson and Jackson had worked at before.
“When I tried to get an image of Sheddy’s body, I kept seeing an image of bungalows, and I knew her body was buried somewhere by them,” says Vincent.
Jackson and Johnson later moved to Tennessee and Hadel to Texas.
“I kept feeling a connection to Texas, that someone involved in the case had a relationship to Texas. Police told me that there was a suspect who did have a Texas connection.”
Jackson was arrested in 2010 for his connection with an arson in Hamilton County, Tennessee and it was then that he reached out to Sheddy’s mother. He offered to give her information as to the location of Sheddy’s remains if they let him out of jail. Dodenhoff accepted and Jackson and Johnson would later be tried in 2012 for after-the-fact involvement in the murder. Jackson stated that he was the ringleader of the murder and accepted a 30-year sentence plea deal.
The psychic sister claims that police had originally chalked Sheddy’s disappearance as a runaway and would have probably remained that way if it wouldn’t have been for her efforts and those of her sister and Sheddy’s mother.
“I knew, from the moment I began receiving messages about Christine, that she was no longer in this world,” said Vincent.
