A film crew taped the reenactment at a murder scene in Philadelphia, where Valerie had used her psychic power in finding the buried victim's murdered body in Fairmount Park. It made the front pages of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News and headlines across the U.S.
Morrison's episode, "A Moth-er's Plea" was seen nationwide on TV on "Psychic Detectives." The show tells the true stories of real cases where psychics help detectives solve law enforce-ment's most baffling cases. It turns many skeptics into believers and got Morrison many accolades from the Philadelphia establishment and the country.
It was the winder of 2006 in a quiet section of northwest Philadelphia, where a mother, Vivian King, called 9-1-1 to report her 17-year-old daughter, Shallie Turner, missing.
Detectives went to King's home where they met Shallie Turner's mother and her stepfather. At first glance, the police felt that it was unlikely that the high school track star, an Olympic hopeful, would be a runaway teenager.
The mother showed the detectives photos of Shallie, as she was a very popular athlete at her high school and they saw that she had a bright future ahead of her. The mother told police that her daughter went out the night before and never came home, that she had been missing for 24 yours. The mother said her daughter was supposed to go to a school dance at the Franklin Hotel.
Detectives are aware that anytime there is an investigation of a missing person, every lead counts and when a juvenile is missing, there are two common themes of runaways. First, there are problems at home, and, second, there's a boyfriend or girlfriend involved.
So, with old-fashioned police work, detectives went to Turner's school to talk to friends, associates and classmates and found she had an existing boyfriend. They learned that Turner was supposed to be at a dance at the Franklin Hotel in center city Philadelphia with her boyfriend, but no one saw them there and no one knew the boyfriend, his name, or where to find him.
With no time to waste, Detective Frank Martin was put on the case. He wanted to work on the case as fast as he could, so as not to lose any ground in finding the missing athlete.
The FBI suggested he contact a world-known psychic, Valerie Morrison, who lived in the area. She was approached by Martin and asked if she was interested in working the missing girl case.
Morrison agreed and Martin gave her pictures of Shallie Turner. Morrison sat in deep thought then told the detective that she was feeling fear. That she was feeling fear for her, then said she sensed the weather was changing, that her feet were cold and the girl wanted Valerie to help her.
Morrison asked detective Martin how long Shallie was missing. He answered, "One week." Morrison then sensed and saw pictures that were flashing and moving very fast. "I am picking up a bus," she said. "I see a boy, but not with her. I see her on a bus. I see the male friend, someone like a boyfriend. It's funny that I see her alone," Morrison continued. "I feel that Shallie was put on the bus by a male or a boyfriend perhaps."
Morrison seemed to connect with the missing girl but no leads were found until one of Shallie's school friends came forward with information on her boyfriend.
Detectives said they didn't know anything about the boyfriend at first, but got his address and got him to come in for questioning. They spoke to him for several hours and advised him to let them know everything he knew.
The boy stated he was with Shallie the night of the dance, but they went to his house instead, watched TV and played video games on the VCR. About 11 p.m. he walked Shallie to the bus stop and waited with her until the bus came, then watched her go toward where she lived. That was the last time he saw her, he said.
The detective was stunned. The boyfriend's statements were exactly mirrored in Valerie Morrison's psychic vision. But in order to clear the boyfriend, the investigation needed proof. They tried to pick up Shallie's trail on the bus line.
The detectives talked to two bus drivers and one remembered her getting on alone at around 11 p.m. that Sunday night and he drove her to 16th and Girard, where she got off by herself.
The boyfriend and the psychic prediction were confirmed. The place where Shallie got off was only three blocks from her home and the police were sure that Shallie's boyfriend was not involved in her disappearance.
Encouraged by Morrison's accounts, Martin pressed her for more clues. As they sat down, Morrison sensed that Shallie did go into her house, but also saw that she had gone home with sneakers and a jacket. Valerie then saw trees and bushes and asked the detective if Shallie lived around water or trees or the park. Martin said yes, she lived a couple of blocks from a park.
"I also see that she is very cold," Morrison said. "Her feet are very cold, like ice cold. I see that Shallie was shivering, holding her body," as Morrison demonstrated to the detective. "She was shaking and seemed to be begging and pleading." Morrison then said she saw Shallie going into her house and going back out again.
"I see water, holy water, something spiritual, something of a religious nature. I see her in the woods in a secluded area. I don't know why she would be there," Morrison said to the detective. "But I also see white lines across her head. That indicates trauma. I think this is a homicide," Morrison told the detective.
Martin then told Morrison they didn't yet know if Shallie was dead or just a runaway. Morrison said, "No! I feel her. Someone killed her and that someone knows her well. I am convinced she was murdered and not missing," the psychic said. "She is somewhere close to her home."
The detective then asked Morrison if there was anyone else she saw that was close to her to center their attention on for any other leads. Morrison replied that a person who is murdered is much more able to speak because they're not yet into the light because they don't believe they are dead. "Shallie would come to me in dreams. I know she is trying to speak to me, saying 'This is where I am, fine me please!'"
Morrison asked to go to where Shallie lived and go into her house. They arrived at the house and were greeted by her mother, Vivian Turner.
"I can see that Shallie had taken off her sneakers and had taken off her coat," Morrison said, "once inside the house. I can sense an argument and upsetment that was going on. I am feeling her fear." Morrison continued to say to the detective that something happened in this house.
They both then agreed that something did happen inside Shallie's house, not outside. And that maybe Shallie's stepfather was involved.
Until next time, Ciao, Joe D'Angelo P.S. Besides predicting the cancellation of the Presidential Inaugural Parade of President Ronald Regan (the first ever in U.S. history), Valerie Morrison also had the accurate profile account of The Son of Sam, who in the 70s was New York's most feared murderer who killed six young people and wounded seven others.
New York was paralyzed with fear and the streets were empty at night. Police unleashed the largest manhunt in city history to try and stop the killer.
Morrison predicted many details pertaining to the capture of the Son of Sam, she said. "Son of Sam will be captured by mid-August, has a police background or worked in the U.S. government. His initials came in as D and F. After a year-long hunt, the murderer, Dave Berkowitz, was captured and was accused of being Son of Sam. The F predicted in his name was Falco, the name he was born with before he was adopted, and he worked for the U.S. government in the Post Office.
David Berkowitz confessed to his year-long killing, pleaded guilty, never going to trial, and was sentenced to life. Morrison made the prediction on August 3 and he was captured on August 18, as predicted.
