A woman who told them she'd had visions led authorities to a body in the search for a missing Southern California boy, a detective in the case said Thursday.

Riverside County Sheriff's Detective John Powers told KFI-AM radio that Pam Ragland found the body matching the description of 11-year-old Terry Smith. A 16-year-old family member was later arrested on suspicion of murder.

Powers said Ragland called a tip line to say she was envisioning a location, and was invited to join the search.

Ragland and her children came to the house without knowing it was the boy's, walked on to the property and right to the partially buried body, according to the detective.

Powers said he searched the area previously without seeing it. He said the situation is "extremely bizarre" and he's "blown away." :happy:

The suspect's name has not been released. He has the same mother as the victim, but a different father.

On Thursday, the bereaved father said he had been expecting his son to fly home this summer to live with him in West Virginia after two years with his mom in Southern California.

"All I want to do is get Terry Jr. back here because that was the last thing he told me on the phone," said Smith Sr., a 62-year-old retired truck driver. "He wanted to come home."

Initial reports from the mother, relayed by law enforcement, described Terry Jr. as an autistic boy who took special medication and answered only to his nickname, "JuJu." His father, however, insisted that his son was not autistic.

The boy lived with him until 2011, when he went to live with his mother, and was a normal kid who loved video games and baseball, he said.

"He was a very bright, well-adjusted child, at least he was when he left here," said Smith Sr. "He pushed buttons and would aggravate you. But, other than that, it was just the typical way ... of a typical boy trying to get his way."

Smith Sr. also helped raise the half brother accused in the case, he said. The teen moved from West Virginia to California after his mother abruptly pulled him out of school, he said.

"I taught him how to walk. I helped him when he was on the baseball team here," he said, recalling that he called the half brother "little Spider-Man."

Investigators told Smith Sr. that Terry Jr. died after a hit to the head but declined to say more, citing a request from police who are still working the case.

OK. Get her onto some other unsolved cases. See how she does with those.

She killed him. Someone she knew killed him. Someone told her they had killed him. She came across the body at an earlier time. Someone came across the body and told her.etc.

 

Plenty of non-supernatural explanations. As I said, have her repeat finding missing people, who are chosen at random, and I would sit-up and pay attention.

 

 

But let me guess: "psychic powers don't work like that" or "you can't make visions happen" etc.

I agree conpl3x, physic powers are bullcrap. It's likely the killer confessed to her or her children who then told her

^ You have much to learn, grasshopper.

 

Genuine psychics have helped in solving crimes, for many decades.

 

Peter Hurkos was one of the most famous, in the 1970's.

^ You obviously do little to no research. Hurkos was a fraud, just like the rest:
