Default Dannion Brinkley---What do you think?

I have the TV movie "Saved By the Light" The Dannion Brinkley story and I have seen Dannion on Unsolved Mysteries. He led authorities to the killer of a young couple. I guess the kiler lived in the same building as the couple and was away at college when they caught him. But does anyone think Dannion is legit? If so, he could solve alot of mysteries.

The case you're referring to is pretty near and dear to my history-- it happened very close to where I grew up. The convicted killer didn't live in the same building as the couple-- he lived in the home previously. The couple purchased the home from the killer's parents less than a year prior to the murders. The motive for the killing is still unknown.

I've been pretty skeptical of psychics, but this is ONE instance where I was pretty impressed wtih what Dannion did. He described the killer as slight with dark hair who was attending school in the Northwest.

All of those were true. The convicted killer, I don't believe, was even ON police's radar at the time. However, it wasn't Dannion who led the police to the killer. The killer confessed his crime to a college classmate, who called the police.

Initially, I thought Dannion was legit, but I have read things since then that make me believe he is a master at "cold" readings, like other psychics we lambast on these boards. I think he was incredibly lucky with the description of the Bosco murders, but I don't think he's got "the gift," so to speak.

I guess it depends on how you look at it. Whatever happened to him changed his life dramatically, so I believe that part of his story is legit. But I understand your feelings about cold readings and I tend not to believe most of them. I couldn't stand Sylvia Brown. But I do think some are legit, and it bugs me when people dismiss psychics simply because they cannot tell you lottery numbers. Psychic intuition is not an exact science and we are only human. Mistakes will be made. It is a gift for the use of helping others, not for the gain of wealth.

The guy is the usual egomaniac conning people for money-he has lied about his NDE details to make money from books etc & in this case the person had lived there previously with his own family, but had broken in to kill them, he provided no name & no college name. In the end it was him blabbing to people at the college that saw him caught. So he basically gave a vague physical description that would apply to millions of Americans & that he went to college somewhere in the Western US-which considering the murders happened in the Western US is not exactly mind shattering stuff. Obviously he considers it a hit, I would think the cops there & most people would consider it guessing with no real detail given-the only way he could be proven wrong is if it turned out to be somebody middle aged or older.
