http://www.abc.net.au/religion/watch/compass/shepherd-one/10142766It's been curious, taking an interest in the Claremont Serial Killer investigation over the years why psychics and theories of the supernatural get so much cred and press. WA police, that's the cops - seem more willing to entertain even embrace the paranormal to the point where it was suggested a raid was executed on a psychic's reading.
Part of the answer may be in that a very well respected former police officer was appointed Chaplain for WA police in 1992, the first employed full time to provide religious and spiritual support within the force. Barry May performed this duty for fifteen years.
He also believed in possession and performed more than twenty exorcisms, blessed houses and cast out demons. So, there ya go. He was a ghost buster.
I've attached a PDF of the transcript of the show, as it appears that the original media is no longer available. Here's an extract of Police Chaplain Barry May talking about the Claremont Serial Killings.
"There have been many occasions in the ministries of police where I've been approached by members of the public, who've said to me I've had visions and dreams. I have taken them to the police artists and as a result of that I have many pictures of people who are supposedly murders, rapists and so on who in fact I have then passed on to macro task force, because they have an outside interest in these sorts of things."
