Witnesses to the Unsolved: Prominent Psychic Detectives and Mediums Explore Our Most Haunting Mysteries ~ Paperback ~ Edward Olshaker
A cross between "Medium" and "Unsolved Mysteries," this award-winning book is now available in paperback for the first time...In WITNESSES TO THE UNSOLVED, author Edward Olshaker turns to some of the world's most accomplished psychic detectives and mediums in a quest for the missing pieces to some of our most puzzling mysteries, including the cases of: -- Martin Luther King, Jr., whose assassination is still an open case after a Memphis trial and a federal investigation reached opposite conclusions in 1999 and 2000. -- Vincent Foster, the White House deputy counsel found shot to death in 1993. Three-quarters of Americans polled in 2000 did not believe the official ruling of suicide. -- Kurt Cobain, the voice of his generation whose death by shotgun triggered scores of "copycat suicides" worldwide, even though America's leading forensic pathologist maintains that the rock icon, with triple the lethal dose of heroin in his body, could not have shot himself. Also explored are the mysteries surrounding the death of Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown, the bizarre fate of former CIA chief William Colby, and much more. The highly regarded cast of police psychics includes Nancy Myer, investigator of hundreds of homicides in North America and overseas; Robert Cracknell, who was labeled "Britain's number one psychic detective" when he provided accurate information to investigators of the Yorkshire Ripper serial murders and other high-profile crimes; and Bertie Catchings, named "best psychic in Texas" in The Book of Texas Bests. Prominent mediums Betty Muench, Janet Cyford, and Philip Solomon provide further illumination, along with dramatic evidence of life after death.
