Earlier this week, I wrote about a psychic named Pam Ragland. She has played crucial roles in criminal investigations. The most recent one was when she led the authorities directly to the body of Terry Smith, a child who had been missing for several weeks.
Ragland’s story became an instant sensation. It had a lot of people wondering about her. Who she is, and how she discovered his body and gave his family some closure. Although this was an amazing feat, the truth is that Ragland isn’t the first psychic that’s successfully assisted the police find a missing or murdered person.
Nor will she be the last. Unfortunately, supposed psychics start pouring in when a missing person’s case becomes high-profile. They all claim to get information by “dowsing” or “speaking with spirits.” More often than not, however, they aren’t helpful in any way, and their claims are entirely untrue. They’re just regular people looking for media attention.
These people drive the police and media not to believe psychics and write them off as liars. However, not all of them are fake psychics doing it for attention. Some have genuine gifts and psychic abilities with highly tuned intuitions and can provide valuable information. Take these cases, for example.
Not All Psychics Are In It For The Attention
Aside from the psychics whose visions helped investigators directly, many have also made significant contributions from the sidelines. Psychic Carla Baron is one of the psychics who’s assisted on high-profile missing persons and homicide cases. Even though she’s significantly helped in Terry Smith’s case, Ragland’s kept pretty quiet about the whole thing. She never wanted to make the case about her, and she was just happy that the police found his body.
It’s almost certain that Ragland will assist authorities with other criminal cases in the future. Despite the skeptics and naysayers, she has proven that consulting psychics for similar issues is a good idea and useful. She’s shown us that we might find what we’re looking for if we’re willing to give psychics a chance and listen to them. Sure, skeptics could argue that she just happened to get lucky in the Terry Smith case.
Even if that was true, what matters is that she was willing to help. It’s also important that the police were willing to listen to her, which led them to locate the young boy’s body. The police didn’t dismiss the information she gave them because she was a psychic. They didn’t question that she got the information thanks to her psychic visions.
Thanks to Ragland and the authorities that listened to her, Smith’s alleged killer will have his day in court. Because of the evidence found on Smiths’ body, prosecutors have a higher chance of finding him guilty. His trial brings justice and closure one step closer for Smith’s family. Even if nine out of the ten psychics police listen to turn out to be of no help, it’s worth it if that one can help them solve the case or at least provide information that helps them.
