This is where I send the newcomers back to Part One and Part Two. Oh! there is also Part Three. It’s a long story, okay? Back off. Don’t make me hurt you. So scraping from my last installment…

There are complications because these two policemen have me in a secret file that their superior officers will not ever see. They aren’t going to be able to get their search warrant on my say-so, because their superiors do not know about me. Even though I feel cheapened by this, I agree to meet them at the actual crime scene later for several reasons. I will go into these later.

First, I am still young enough then not to be uppity with the police, and also used to being treated with secrecy, like the mistress to a married man would be.

Second, I really want to help. Duh.

Third, and most compelling. I had never before physically visited a site that I had visited via remote viewing. I was pretty excited about that.

When I got to the farm, it was indeed what I had seen in my remote visit.

How cool is that?

The two policemen, lets call them Simon and Judas, wanted me to enter into the psyche of the shooters. Okay. I had done this before. It isn’t always pretty, but then, neither was the dirty old bugger.

If I hadn’t made it clear before, the dirty old bugger had molested the younger of the two shooters. When I went inside the shooter’s emotions, I found only elation and exhiliaration. “I did it! And I’m glad I did!” In fact, he didn’t leave immediately afterwards. he stuck around a bit to gloat.

I pointed out the places he wandered because they may have held potential evidence. He didn’t have to step over the body of the dirty old bugger, so there were no bloody footprints. The only evidence recovered were shells from a 22 rifle. (A rabbit gun)

A search warrant had been served and executed on the hiding place of the weapon, but the older guy had gotten antsy, and had re-hidden it.

After the visit to the crime scene, there was a lengthy session at the police detachment. This is the part where I was starved all day and became cranky and tired. I produced sketches of the weapon’s new hiding place, sketches of the two, and the accomplice who owned the antique truck they arrived in. I traced the route the two had travelled in the truck, because I recognized the landmarks.

It was during this session that Judas looked me straight in the eye and barefaced lied to me: “We’re going to make sure that you will get paid for all of your time and talent.” Up to that point, I was somewhat naive about police trickery. It was before all the good cop shows on tv heh-heh.

To me, that was the last straw. I know when I’m being lied to, and the worst thing about it is that a liar will never own up to it. What do you say when someone lies to your face? Sheesh. I never brought up money at all. He did. With a big fat lie. While I was hungry and tired. And cranky. Did I mention cranky?

They couldn’t serve the second search warrant for the weapon because they were threatened with a harrassment suit.

The weapon was never recovered. The two got off scot-free because they couldn’t get any evidence to convict.

Serves them right, the big fat liars.
They totally ignored my information about the antique truck, even though I gave the licence number. They could have questioned the owner, at the very least.

I provided the best I had to offer, was exhausted in the process, and my information was selectively used. I wonder how many other dirty old buggers got theirs at the end of this guy’s arm. Because I do know that the shooter felt no remorse, only exhiliaration. I think he got a taste for it.

I thought of him a while back when a young man from my area went on a rampage. He had a list of pedophiles and he was killing them. I bet Simon and Judas thought about him, too.

It’s frustrating to know that the police didn’t use information I felt strongly about. That’s why this is the final installment of Working with the Police. Psychics have huge egos when it comes to their information. It’s a housewife’s dream to hear “You’re right” time after time, and then get paid for it. I hear it all the time. With the police? Not so much.

When I do a reading, and see trauma in the client’s past, I really have to judge whether or not to go into it. One, is the client ready? Two, do I want to go there myself? If we go into the trauma, we can effect a healing. Working with the police is like experiencing the trauma without the benefit of the healing. It’s just not for me.

This is where I send the newcomers back to Part One and Part Two Those of you with good memories, just rip this puppy up with your bad selves reading.

Now where was I? Oh, yes, the soon-to-be-deceased is down on the lower level of the barn, when he hears a noise on the upper level. What he hears is the opening noises of the huge door that is on the road level.

He goes up the stairs, they are rough hewn stairs. It’s cold, and the wind blows through the very large barn . I see through his eyes two men just inside the double doors. It is dark just outside the door.

The dirty old bugger recognizes the two men. He is enraged that they have come to his barn. They have parted on bad terms. The elder of the intruders was fired from the farm. The younger, a hanger-on, helped himself to some tools belonging to the old man, and the old man shakes his fist at the youngster, demanding his tools.

The younger man says he has a right to those tools after what the dirty old bugger did to him. The old man turns purple with rage, then he sees the gun in the kid’s hands. It is a 22 rifle, what I called a rabbit gun. He immediately turns and runs toward the lower level, and in fact, makes it down the stairs.

I break it off at this point. I know in my mind that I, myself, won’t get shot, but the emotional intensity is well, intense. That tends to ruin the detached observation in remote viewing.

I pick up later to follow the two, and am very puzzled that it is light outside. I can see the truck they pile into. It is an old, navy blue Ford pickup. It’s in pretty good shape, all shiny. I sketch it for the police. They say that the licence plate makes it impossible, because the initial letter “U” on the plate is the designation for antique vehicles. Neither of these two own such a vehicle. I say they must have use of one, because this is what they drive away in. I recognize the back roads they drive down, and the community they are going to. The police discount this entirely, because it does not fit into their understanding of the people involved.

They also tell me the reason it is daylight is not so much the amount of time lapsed, but rather that the dirty old bugger was shot just before dawn. That helped, because I was beginning to doubt myself for a bit.

I show the police the sketch I had made of the barn layout. They ask me if I would recognize it if I were to visit the scene. I absolutely would.

Now that the police have some confidence that I actually can see something, they reveal what it is they really want of me. They want me to pinpoint the location of the murder weapon. I’ve never done this, but I do explain that I need someone who would recognize the place I will describe, because it isn’t anywhere I have been before.

I describe the place, and am drawn to an outbuilding. There is a space under the floorboards, but it is accessed from the wall. The policemen are very excited. They already have information that this is the older guy’s hiding place, where he stashes his liquor so his mother won’t find it.

I tell them that it is imperative that they act very quickly, because he is antsy, and considering moving the weapon.

There are complications because these two policemen have me in a secret file that their superior officers will not ever see. They aren’t going to be able to get their search warrant on my say-so, because their superiors do not know about me. Even though I feel cheapened by this, I agree to meet them at the actual crime scene later for several reasons. I will go into these later.

Yes, there will be a part four. Don’t hate me. I told you that this is a long story.

If you haven’t done so yet, you might want to read Part One

It’s okay, I’ll go start supper and come back when you do.

The second time I worked with the police was a murder investigation. I got the officers very interested when I looked at the victim’s photograph (taken during his life, not in his death because that would be creepy, even for me) and I muttered “That dirty old bugger.”

What I saw was a pedophile. What his wife and the rest of his community saw was a very nice man.

I next described the shooters. I kind of did it by “feeling them” or “visiting” them. I knew the older was flabby, soft, and fair-complected. The other was younger, more fit, and dark-haired.

The officers asked me if I could identify them from photos. I could and did. They were getting more excited. They had an idea who did it. They were asking me to describe everything I could about the case before they revealed exactly what they wanted me to pinpoint. I guess they wanted to see if I was any good.

I was asked to tune into the victim around the time of the shooting. I described a dark house, him having a pee, putting wood in the stove, down to the pattern on the linoleum. (That’s old people talk for a particular kind of hard wearing flooring, and this was so not pretty) They were all yeah, yeah, skip all that, what happens next?

I describe a barn he goes to, and later I sketch this barn. There were birthing pens that I sketched, and I put them on the wrong level, but precisely above where they actually were. (Note: I have been looking through my stuff to find my sketches. I’m hoping I didn’t throw them out in the big clean I did recently.)

He is doing something on the lower level, washing something, and he hears something on the upper.

To be continued…

I have worked with the police exactly twice. I will not do so again. I now know why criminals confess. Police officers have major stamina, work very long hours, and do not offer any nourishment or breaks to those who are helping them for twelve hour stretches. Criminals, I’m sure, just get tired and want the police to leave them alone, so they confess.

Both occasions called for my clairvoyant abilities.

The first was to locate a dangerous offender who was unlawfully at large. I was shown a photo of the subject, and “visited” him.

What that really means is that I got a real sense of who he was. I felt him as a four year old child, who was locked in a dark closet. That was the time that he resolved not to fear, not to feel at all. Four years old. I volunteered that he most likely imprisoned his victims in a small, dark space. I was told that at least one was held in a trunk.

There was no prior knowledge by me of his background. I prefer to work cold. I then switched to looking through his eyes at the present time. I have no clue how I switch like that, except by intent. I said that I would need someone who had visited his house, to confirm that it was what I was describing.

I should note that I have occasionally gone outside and looked around when remote viewing, but it gives me a level of excitement and anxiety that is counter productive to the task at hand. One needs to be relaxed and somewhat detached.

So, I’m looking through the eyes of a young predator, and I describe his surroundings. I then sketch everything while it is still fresh in my tiny little brain. I describe exactly where in the house he is hiding, and draw an “X” to mark the spot.

I get the call from someone who lives nearby that a raid is imminent. They are also working with the police, in an observer capacity. I have practically a front row seat for the takedown.

One of the officers is a real hot dog. He reminds me of a hyperactive puppy, with big, dirty paws. A real keener. He didn’t instill a lot of confidence in me. I was nervous that his eagerness might blow everything, but he was fine.

The dogs are brought in, and the offender is ordered to come out if he doesn’t want the dog to hurt him. I believe the hot dog fondly referred to the attack dog as “Chewy” because he said that Chewy chews.

The offender, in cuffs, is brought out by the triumphant hot dog. Case closed.

Note: This was tricky for me to write. I wanted to make sure there were no identifying details because of people who were involved in the surveillance, and of course, for the safety of my own family members.

The second case will be more straight forward. There is nobody to protect in the second case.
