Police investigate psychic vision, no body found | Crime
FINDALY, OH (The Courier) - A Xenia man reported having psychic visions of a homicide in Findlay's Rawson Park, leading several city police officers to investigate early Monday.
The man called police at 4:22 a.m. to report a dead body may be near the corner of River Street and Broad Avenue, said Lt. John Dunbar.
Four officers checked the intersection and adjacent park before determining the man was mistaken, Dunbar said.
"We still take it seriously when someone calls in a dead body," Dunbar said.
Regardless of who the caller is, officers investigate crime reports because the claims could be accurate, he said. But false reports can tie up police, Dunbar said.
"It unfortunately goes with the job. There's no doubt it takes up resources," Dunbar said.
Officers later learned the man has made similar reports to Xenia police. Findlay police will not likely pursue charges, unless the man becomes a recurring problem, Dunbar said.
