The Logan Tucker Case: Not Solved by Psychics

I received an email about Robbie Thomas being on a recent "radio" show (December 15 or 16) and though I haven't had a chance to listen to the program yet (I have to put all my forks away or the "radio" show will drive me to poke my eyes out - Robbie is a consistent liar and an abuser of the English language.  Listening to his radio programs involves a re-write of the dictionary to make his statements even close to sensible - but enough with the ad hominem attack), but I followed some of the links they included in the email.

First, let me point you to further proof that Robbie Thomas is a scumbag - on the following site, Danielle Egnew advertises her upcoming (at the time) participation in the Psychic Justice Tour (which failed miserably because of supposed anthrax attacks (though I suspect the more likely reason being that he is such a horrible liar)).  The advertisement that is placed on the site is almost verbatim what Robbie had initially used when promoting his tour - so Danielle Egnew can really only be guilty of failing to even do a cursory search of Robbie's (false) claims.  Robbie Thomas continues to use and abuse already victimized families by claiming to have been involved in solving their cases - even when the cases haven't been solved.  That's what a scumbag does.

Danielle will be the featured guest speaker during the Los Angeles leg of renowned criminal Psychic Profiler Robbie Thomas' Psychic Justice Tour dedicated to the families and victims of unsolved crimes, hitting 30+ cities in two countries thus far. The Los Angeles event is tentatively scheduled for July / August of 2010, times and venue TBA.

The tour showcases Robbie Thomas, whose TV pilot "Psychic Justice" has already been shot, discussing his 18 years as a psychic criminal profiler while presenting his involvement with sensitive high profile cases such as Victoria Stafford (Woodstock, ON), Elisha McMaster (Toronto, ON), Cesar Ivan Aguilar-Cano (Louisville, KY) , Logan Tucker (Oklahoma City, Ok) Natalie Holloway (Birmingham, AL), Karen Caughlin (Sarnia, Ontario), Marc Campbell (Sarnia, Ontario) and many others.


I suspect that I needn't point out that the Natalee Holloway case has not been solved (notice the misspelling - I suspect it is to limit people finding out that he is abusing her name but it could simply be that Robbie is that stupid.)  But, for those that don't know, the Elisha McMaster case is not solved (Elisha's mother, Jane, is still searching for help and, unfortunately, from other 'psychics'), the Karen Caughlin case is not solved (follow the link above for more information) and the Logan Tucker case is one that was not solved by Robbie Thomas.

The Logan Tucker story is available online and it clearly does not involve a psychic solving the crime.  Other psychics who attempted to get involved were outed as failures (see Oklahoma is not "OK" for psychic) and as the body of the missing boy has still not been found, Robbie is obviously lying about his involvement in the case.

The Marc Campbell story will be for another entry - but, rest assured, Robbie Thomas did not solve the crime and definitely didn't do so with his so-called psychic powers.

Robbie Thomas is a liar and a fraud - these are not merely opinions but statements of fact.  We've made these claims for a number of years and if they were not true, they would be actionable.  As always, if Robbie Thomas wishes to sue me, I will happily identify myself to his lawyers and I would be overjoyed to expose his lies, further, in a court of law.

The Only Ones Who Didn't See it Coming? The Psychics

Simple questions can show the absurdity of psychic claims.  Why are there still missing children? Why are there unsolved crimes?  Why do you never see "Psychic wins lottery"?  And, added to the list, If everyone else figured that Robbie Thomas' 'Paranormal Convention' was going to fail, why couldn't the 'Psychic' himself, see it coming?

Robbie Thomas (who is clearly not psychic) had scheduled his "Can-Am Parafest" for this coming weekend but, as we all suspected, it has been canceled.  This is the third time that Robbie Thomas (who is not psychic) had attempted to put on a "convention" or "fest" and the first two had such dismal numbers that when SarniaSkeptic attended he increased (by percentage) the number of attendees by double digits. 

Sadly, for believers, self-styled Psychic Robbie Thomas will continue on pretending like he has never had a failure and encourage people to hand over their hard-earned money for some lame party tricks and false hope. 

In more than 18 years, Robbie Thomas has never solved a crime using his claimed 'psychic' powers because Robbie Thomas, like everyone else, is not 'psychic'.  In the words of Tim Minchin, Robbie Thomas is either lying or he's mentally ill.  So, if you meet Robbie Thomas and you think he's sincere - the latter might just be the only possibility.

Psychics Don't Exist: Another One Exposed

Psychic Sally Morgan hears voices from the other side (via a hidden earpiece)

Evidence 'Britain's best-loved psychic' Sally Morgan may not be all she seems is unlikely to deter her fans, writes Chris French

According to her website, Sally Morgan is "Britain's best-loved psychic". She is certainly a very successful psychic – she has just released her third book and is currently filming the third series of Psychic Sally on the Road for Sky LIVING. But an incident that took place a few days ago may cause a few of her fans to wonder whether Morgan is deserving of their adoration. Could it be that, like so many self-professed psychic superstars in the past, Morgan is nothing more than a self-serving con artist?

Let me describe what happened so that you can make up your own mind. On Monday 12 September, a caller named Sue phoned the Liveline show on RTÉ Radio 1, an Irish radio station. Sue said that she had attended Morgan's show the previous night at the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin and had been impressed by the accuracy of the readings she made in the first half of the show.

But then something odd happened. Sue was sitting in the back row on the fourth level of the theatre and there was a small room behind her ("like a projection room") with a window open. Sue and her companions became aware of a man's voice and "everything that the man was saying, the psychic was saying it 10 seconds later."

Sue believes, not unreasonably, that the man was feeding information to Sally through an earpiece attached to her microphone. For example, the voice would say something like "David, pain in the back, passed quickly" and a few seconds later Sally would claim to have the spirit of a "David" on stage who – you'll never guess – suffered from back pain and passed quickly.

A member of staff realised that several people near the back of the theatre were aware of the mystery voice and the window was gently closed. The voice was not heard again.

Unsolved crimes are about to be a thing of the past.. not quite

We've blogged regularly about Robbie Thomas falsely claiming to support charities and non-profit organizations but this one is a little different.  Robbie actually has found a person who will allow him to use her non-profit organization to suggest legitimacy of his con game.

Jennifer Romero is the founder of an organization called "Mothers of Murdered Youth" and is the mother of a murder victim.  Her 13 year old child was killed in a drive-by shooting.  My heart goes out to her.  This site is about protecting victims from further abuse by psychics - not about faulting people who accept the assistance of the liars and cheats.  We can completely understand why it is that families of lost loved ones will reach out for help - any kind of help.  For some, hope, it seems, is all they have.  Many families feel that not enough is being done to solve their cases and accept any offers of help. 

The problem here is that Jennifer is not about to get help.  She is about to be (and currently is being) abused.  Robbie Thomas is not psychic and has absolutely no legitimate skills that will provide any relevant information that may assist in solving crimes. 

If Robbie Thomas was truly a "supporter" of Mothers of Murdered Youth and he can solve crimes, why doesn't he simply solve the crimes?  That'd be real support.  He can't - that's why he doesn't.  He isn't psychic - he's lying.

And, doesn't it seem odd that Robbie Thomas of Sarnia, Ontario would be supporting a small-time non-profit in Colorado and not a local organization?  It isn't odd when you consider that Robbie's previous attempts to abuse (err... use) local groups, to provide himself an appearance of legitimacy, has resulted in emails and letters demanding that he remove their names and logos from his site.  Legitimate organizations distance themselves from outright liars and frauds or they stop being legitimate organizations.

SarniaSkeptic: Of Course Psychics Aren't Self Serving

As some of you may be aware, SarniaSkeptic is a regular contributor to the http://www.stoprobbie.com/ site.  He was one of the driving forces that lead to the creation of this site.  Recently he posted an entry that I think is fitting for the http://www.stoprobbie.com/ site (but since he didn't crosspost it, I'm not going to copy it here and add a few other links) - take a look at:

SarniaSkeptic: Of course psychics aren't self serving, that's why I love them

It is important to remember that Robbie Thomas isn't the only 'psychic' who purports to have abilities that can be used to solve crimes and other miraculous things - he's not even the only one in Sarnia.  In Sarnia, they are lucky to have another 'psychic' that has preyed on families that have been victimized by violent crimes.  Darin James (Darin Scheiding) (http://www.darinjamesonline.com/) / d_scheiding@hotmail.com is another non-psychic that needs to adjust his ways.

Other entries that SarniaSkeptic has written about Darin James in the past:

And the other 'psychic' listed in the first link, is Mary Demitro/Mary Young

Robbie Thomas is about to be $2000 richer

If you believe that Robbie Thomas has psychic powers, the title of this blog just has to be true. Remember that case that Robbie Thomas advertised at all his shows, spoke about on all the radio programs and featured in a number of his newspaper interviews? The one that many people suspected was solved - after all why would he be bragging about solving crimes with psychic powers and be featuring a case that he didn't solve? Yes, the Karen Caughlin case.

Suppose you believe psychic powers exist.
Suppose you believe that psychics can solve missing persons and murder cases.
Suppose that you believe Robbie Thomas' claims that he is successful in his supposed business of psychic criminal profiling.
Now, explain to me why a psychic who is supposedly successful would pick and promote, as his primary example of his skills, a case that is still not solved.

In case you haven't seen it, the Caughlin family has spoken out about Robbie's abuses and lies. The link also has some images showing Robbie's countless claims of involvement in the case.

Robbie Thomas is a liar and he is not psychic. His actions towards the Caughlin family and others shows that he is also a heartless asshole - and I say that with more respect than he is due.

Send email an email to robbiethomas@cogeco.ca and ask him what he's going to do with the $2,000. Let him know that we sent you. You might, also, want to ask him what happened to the CrimeStoppers logos on his websites (Hint: He lied about being a sponsor of two different CrimeStoppers organizations and he was required to remove their logos. His rewording on his site is his attempt to pretend that he isn't the big lying piece of shit that we know him to be.)
