Hurkos was accurate regarding several other points – the murders were committed by a cult gang whose members included both men and women – heavily involved with drugs and eccentric sexual behavior.
Hurkos’s revelations and professionalism paved the way for other psychics to work with law enforcement agencies.
To date, probably the longest lasting relationship with police authorities can be claimed by Irene Hughes of Chicago. A plaque is displayed in her office signed by three Chicago policemen expressing their appreciation for leads she provide them. The police of Illinois credit Hughes with helping to solve over 15 murder cases. In one particular homicide case, she provided the exact name and address of the murderer, adding that the case would take a long time to solve. Indeed, it took three years to capture the fugitive.
Typically, psychics who are working with unsolved cases make use of names, photographs or physical objects associated with the crime. They may use psychometry on the murder weapon, such as a gun or knife, or on the cherished toy of a child kidnap victim, to gain information.
Police investigation is one area in which the ratio of psychic hits-to-misses is less important. Psychics may come up with little information in one out of five cases. Yet, on the fifth case, they may provide very specific information that leads to a capture or a solution. Then the wait is worth the time and/or monetary investment. Producing a “low score” overall must be viewed in a different perspective. The police department’s own ratio of significant to dead-end leads are sometimes not any better than a psychic’s. But, it only takes one good lead to break a case.
Nevertheless, one should always proceed with an open mind, and realize that psychic is infallible. Psychic ability may soon prove to be the most valuable instrument for ferreting out hidden information and obscure facts.
