New York Post article credits a psychic; anyone want to add a skeptical comment to the article’s reader feedback?

Psychic nailed it

A psychic eerily predicted where the victim of a suspected serial killer could be found—nine months before cops dug up the corpse and that of three other young women on a Long Island beach, police sources said.

In April, the clairvoyant, hired by the desperate family of Melissa Barthelemy, 24, of Buffalo, chillingly saw “her body buried in a shallow grave overlooking a body of water,” the police source said. The psychic also said “there was a ‘G’ in a sign nearby.”

Last month, cops unearthed the skeletons of the victims, missing call girls, each wrapped in burlap bags on Long Island’s Gilgo Beach. . . .

My psychic abilities tell me who the cops are now going to suddenly take an interest in regarding this case.

Oh wait!  I thought the psychic was dead-on accurate, and thus truly knew about the case.  Now I see it was the usual “near water” (try NOT being near water in our civilization!), one single letter here and there, shallow grave (as opposed to a 50-foot deep grave!) and other shotgun style guesses.

I’d be more impressed if she’d nailed the perpetrator.
