A few days later, her sister got a call from Barthelemy's cell phone. An unidentified man on the other end said: You won't, because I killed her.
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. 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 themand 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? Because if that's not a face you can trustwhat is?

Via Wikimedia Yes, an island. Suck on it, peninsulas.
As for the bit about "a sign with a G nearby" Any sign referencing the area in any way would've had a "G" in it, not to mention the thousands of other "G"-bedazzled signs you would find in a big city as in the case of the "Gilgo Beach" sign -- it contains a "G" along with eight other letters the psychic could have guessed.

You don't have to take our word for it; there have been several scientific studies to test the so-called abilities of psychic detectives over the years, generally by having a group of regular people compete against them.
To the surprise of no one but people who believe in psychics, regular Joes and supernatural seers perform the same -- almost as if they were all just making guesses based on the information given to them.
