  Psychic detective - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There is a long histoy of psychic detectives in horror and crime fiction, and in other genres as well.
No psychic detective has ever been praised or given official recognition by the F.B.I. or US national news for solving a crime, preventing a crime, or finding a kidnap victim or corpse.
Abilities of psychic detectives are frequently alleged include postcognition (the supernatural perception of the past), psychometry (the paranormal divination of information based on reading the 'aura' of a place or object), and telepathy.

 Introduction to Truth
The reader of the JSPR report is left with an impression, apparently shared at the time by West and Stemman, that all three psychics had made this demand to handle the objects in the boxes, and that consequently Wiseman had to change the proposed procedure.
The mere opening of boxes containing, respectively, a woman's shoe, a spent bullet and a headscarf, plus the prior revelation that each was connected to a crime, would clearly have the effect of depriving his predictive dreams of much of their evidential value.

 Psychic detective - [Sunday Herald]
The paranormal business is booming, from mediums charging up to £100 a session, to psychic fairs to the proliferation of supernatural programmes which have even reversed the fortunes of some lagging TV channels.

The Independent Investigations Group has been examining the public claims of Carla Baron – a self-proclaimed “psychic detective” who has solved fifty cases in the past twenty years, or has solved no cases in the past three years, depending on whether you believe her or us.
However, Detective Etter specifically said that Baron’s conversation with Susan Tusing was not a “cold reading.” Without a transcript, we cannot say for sure.
From the 14 cases that Carla Baron promotes as her best work, we can positively conclude that her claims of being a psychic detective are unsubstantiated.
