Barthelemy's sister received several more creepy calls from this man, who turned out to be a goddamned serial killer, playing horrific mind games by detailing his abuse of Barthelemy. Police tried to trace down the location where the calls were coming from, but couldn't because the killer had seen the same movies as the rest of us and would hang up too quickly. Desperate, Barthelemy's family hired a psychic to help find her body. The psychic said that she was buried in a shallow grave overlooking a body of water, with a "G" in a sign nearby.

The real letters involved with this are "B" and "S".
Nine months later, cops dug up Barthelemy's body wrapped in plastic bags on Long Island's Gilgo Beach. Holy shit! A "G" in the sign and everything! And this is not an isolated incident. Some police departments actually use self-proclaimed psychic detectives (or at least allow the desperate families of victims to use them), and there's case after case after case after case after case of psychics using their paranormal abilities to solve crimes.
Does that mean all those goofy mind detectives from bullshit shows such as Long Island Medium and whatnot actually have powers?
