Brother of murder victim continues to berate paranormal sleuths
Once again, paranormal group is slammed as being unethical in their pronouncements and promises.
The brother of Moors Murder victim Keith Bennett (above) has slammed paranormal sleuths for claiming they know where he is buried.
Alan, 58, accused them of being “immoral” after using EVP, electronic voice phenomena, to “locate” the 12-year-old’s grave.
Alan said: “It is nonsense based on psychic messages.
“We have been plagued by this type for as long as I can remember. They gave false hope but have no answer.
“They never will be of any use in the search for Keith.”
Indeed, he is correct. Psychic and paranormal investigators do no better than chance in guessing or come up with information that someone else without any special powers could also uncover. This is not the first time we have covered stories of family members appalled by the callous self-serving behavior of people who claim to possess occult information. To present this info to the public is disgusting because psychic knowledge, EVPs or any other ghost technique has never been shown to be reliable or even worthwhile at all. Police and families should steer clear of the empty promises of deluded “paranormal” people. The paranormal group is not named but back in 2012, Alan Bennett had previously named Worsley Paranormal Group as the offenders.
On its website, the members identify themselves as “one of the North West’s most respected paranormal investigators.” How many are there and who decided that?

I don't know a lot about these murders because it's been a long time since I read about them and I think that there has been new information discovered since then. Maybe Lee will do one of her "This Day in History" articles about them if the date is ever right.
