During high-profile criminal investigations, it very often happens that investigators receive solicitations from mediums claiming to be able to help them in their research thanks to their dreams, visions or their “sixth sense”.
Although the effectiveness of psychics in legal cases is often questioned, sometimes these visions are verified and unofficial collaborations arise between psychics and investigators, often at an impasse. Disappearances, kidnappings, murders… many of them have actually been elucidated by mediums, with extraordinary gifts of clairvoyance.
France Dimanche thus invites you to come back to 5 legal cases which were resolved by psychic detectives.
Did you know ? Information generated by psychics is inadmissible in court.
