Joe Power has been asked to work on many missing persons and murder cases over the years, each one has been interesting to work on and an emotional experience. Here are just a few of the cases.
Case file 1 Shannon Matthews
The case of Shannon Matthews was headline news all over the country in March of 2008. The nine-year-old Dewsbury girl vanished while walking home from a school trip which launched the largest missing person search in Britain's history. Shannon's mother Karen made numerous tearful appeals in the media for her daughter's safe return.
I got involved with the case when The People Newspaper asked me to accompany them to the area where Shannon went missing and they would document what I psychically perceived.
I sensed that Shannon got into a car with someone she knew. I had a strong vision that she was with her abductor at a recent funeral and sat on his lap. I met with Karen and her boyfriend Craig Meehan at their house and held some of Shannon's clothing. I told them the abductor was connected with Craig and was named Mick or Michael. Craig squirmed at this insight and left the room. I heard the name Paul and the town of Batley. When I relayed this to Karen, she nervously rose and went to talk with Craig in the kitchen.
The information obviously hit too close to home. Six days later, police busted down the door at a home in Batley and found Shannon hidden under a bed. Craig's uncle Mick Donovan who also went by the name of Paul Drake was arrested and charged with kidnapping and imprisonment.
With the perpetrator behind bars, the story unfolded. Shannon did indeed sit on Mick Donovan's lap at a recent funeral and shockingly, Karen knew where Shannon was all along. Craig Meehan was arrested for harbouring child pornography on his computer and later police arrested Karen, the trial continues.
The British media interviewed me extensively about the Shannon Matthews case. It truly shows how accurate my guides are when I work with them on criminal cases. I trust what is presented to me and continue my adamant participation in crime mysteries.
Case file 2 - Shannon Cunningham
Precious Shannon Cunningham was only three months old when she was savagely murdered by her own father. A criminal justice firm hired me to help find her killer and it became one of my most emotionally difficult cases. The private detective brought me to the home of Colin Cunningham, the uncle of baby Shannon's father Scott. Scott and Shannon's mother Shelley Wright were living at Colin's house when Shannon was found with horrific injuries.
Although Scott was already behind bars for the murder, he maintained he was innocent. Yet with the vibes in that house and visions from baby Shannon's spirit, I picked up he was very much guilty. The Criminal Justice Firm asked if I would meet Scott in Parkhurst prison on the Isle of Wight. I did in deed Visit him with one of the detectives and his aura showed me the gruesome reality that played out the night of her death. I saw Scott slamming his infant daughter on the floor cracking her skull. He continued his rough treatment until the final blow came in the kitchen. I was actually shown a candlestick with blood on it which was eventually found.
I feel the right man is in prison and know Shannon is still very much alive on the other side.
Case file 3 - Lynsey Quy
My first murder mystery actually came to me in a strange dream. In my sleep I heard a phone ring and suddenly a woman with long dark hair appeared. She pleaded with me to help police find her body and killer. I was stunned when I realized this spirit visitor was twenty-one year old Lynsey Quy who at that time in 1999 had been missing for more than a year. Her story was in all the media and became one of the biggest searches in England during the late ‘90s.
Lynsey came to me in a series of visions and showed me her body was "carnaged" during her murder. She showed me two locations which puzzled me, but made sense later. I followed her trail of clues and wound up right outside the house where Lynsey lived with her husband and two children.
Over several months, I continued to physically follow up with information fed to me by Lynsey Quy's spirit. She told me her husband killed her and his brother helped chop up her body and bury her torso at the fairground and her arms and legs by the railway line.
I took this information to police and still have the receipt for my statement. I was frustrated police did not follow up on my meticulous information, so I wrote a letter to the chief inspector Bob Marsden and took it to the police station in person. I never heard from him.
Five months later, Marsden was replaced with a new chief inspector named Jeff Sloane who never saw my information. Police eventually pressured Lynsey's husband Mitchell into a confession and indeed they located her body parts at the fairground and near the railway tracks.
My information was stunningly correct and it was a valuable start to my crime detective work. I later talked about my experience with Lynsey Quy in a television episode of Psychic Investigators which aired on Living TV and The Biography Channel.
