An A*shole & a Psychic Vision

Episode 254,   May 10, 2023, 11:30 AM

Brian Eftenoff was a bit of a douche. He was arrogant. Self centered. Controlling. But when he met a young Judi Harding at a bar in Phoenix, he laid on the charm. Judi was smitten. Soon, Brian and Judi moved in together. They got married. They had two children. Judi confided in her friends and family that Brian was abusive. So, when Brian discovered her dead one morning, he became a prime suspect.

Then Brandi tells us about a woman whose psychic vision helped solve a crime. Etta Smith didn’t know Melanie Uribe, but when she heard about the young mother’s disappearance, Etta had an unexpected vision. She saw that Melanie was in a canyon, surrounded by shrubbery. Etta worried that police wouldn’t take her seriously, but she went to the police station anyway. She couldn’t shake the possibility that perhaps Melanie was still alive, and in desperate need of help.

And now for a note about our process. For each episode, Kristin reads a bunch of articles, then spits them back out in her very limited vocabulary. Brandi copies and pastes from the best sources on the web. And sometimes Wikipedia. (No shade, Wikipedia. We love you.) We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the real experts who covered these cases.
