In April 1983, Mary Cousett from Alton, Illinois disappeared after leaving her home with her boyfriend Stanley Holiday Jr. Holiday was arrested and would confess to her murder. The only problem? Investigators could not find the 27-year-old’s body. After seven months of searching, police took an unusual route. They called Greta Alexander, a woman with psychic abilities. Alexander was known locally for her talents and for greatly helping the needy, and she did just that. She located the body which ultimately led to the conviction of Stanley Holiday Jr. Psychics helping the police is a very old story. Where did it start? Can these incredible cases be believed? We don’t know either, but we’re going to talk about it! Enjoy!
