As of February 1988, the Helen Wilson murder investigation was in need of a fresh set of eyes – like a psychic, perhaps?
By 1988, more than a hundred potential suspects had been interviewed, examined and excluded. Mostly these were southeastern Nebraska residents, but some were out of state serial rapists from the likes of Kansas and Colorado as well.
It didn’t matter. Wherever the Beatrice Police Department seemed to go looking, inevitably, the lead detectives smacked into a brick wall.
The mystery rapist-murderer of Feb. 5-6, 1985 got away with his deep, dark secret, baffling the authorities for three full years. No arrest was imminent.
Figuring he had nothing left to lose, Beatrice detective Sam Stevens placed a phone call to Denver, Colorado. He enlisted the services of psychic who worked with her husband to help various police departments solve violent crimes.
The detective and the psychic spoke on the phone. She sought permission to review a number of crime scene clues including the murder victim’s clothing. The psychic thought that having an opportunity to see and smell the victim’s clothing might help her conjure up a vision as to how this horrendous crime transpired and who was the culprit.
Many months passed.
Finally, the psychic, Dar Emme, did a lengthy phone interview with Beatrice Detective Sam Stevens. The opportunity to let her review a number of the crime scene clues, plus some of the victim’s jewelry, had a profound impact.
The psychic was confident that she knew the motive of the crime, the number of people who were involved and the first name of one of the perpetrators.
Psychic Dar Emme’s assistance in the Helen Wilson murder investigation is detailed in part of my new book. Ultimately, you can assess whether Emme’s psychic abilities led the small-town authorities closer to finding the killer or killers still roaming at large.
