Noreen Renier, psychic: Faked finding plane & survivors. Part 1

www.globalnetresearch.com [cached]

In June 2006, Renier's critic, John Merrell located two people who knew about the crash.
Mr. Wilber told Merrell after reviewing A Mind for Murder (co-written by Naomi Lucks), that psychic investigator Noreen Renier "doesn't know what she's talking about. . . . I don't think she's got anything right. . . . My daughter and I found the plane ourselves. . . . We never heard of her. . . . She's lying". After providing Merrell with a tour of the airport and showing him maps and aerial photography of the area, he told Merrell, "We knew for a fact [the crash site] wasn't in New Hampshire. Researcher John Merrell smiles and notes this bigger issue. In late 2013 Merrell noted, "There are more than 350 towns and cities in Massachusetts. Over dinner with Merrell they ran through everyone in the last 40 years --- not just 23 years --- in the crash area who could possibly have matched the hunting dog owner Renier described.


Psychic Noreen Renier: Falsehoods of events and claims of a missing plane

Why in particular had Merrell not unmasked her deceptions about the airplane crash in 1986 before the six jury members in Oregon who found him guilty of libel?
That legal breach by Noreen Renier allowed Merrell an ability after 14 years to explore and investigate once again. Even in early 1986 --- 24 months after the crash --- Merrell could not find any crash across the United States that matched the claims being made by Mrs. Renier. Merrell stated "I can hear Renier's defenders now. Just a few months earlier, prior to Renier filing her lawsuit against Merrell, Renier told Merrell that the plane was in Virginia, Massachusetts, or New York. Just a few months earlier, prior to Renier filing her lawsuit against Merrell, Renier told Merrell that the plane was in Virginia, Massachusetts, or New York. But as Merrell became increasingly tied up in Renier's litigation rather than investigating Noreen Renier's claims Noreen Renier unveiled her ultimate air crash fantasy before millions. Jessica Herbert, having never spoken with Merrell, and after testifying on Renier's behalf, stated Renier "really came through" during a difficult period. Merrell asks, "How could a headless woman have survived? According to Merrell two of the six jury members teared up when the heard Arthur Herbert had carried a dying Carolyn Porter in his arms before dying. Twenty years after the crash a Noreen Renier supporter, the late Professor Robert Van de Castle of the University of Virginia noted, "The author, Noreen Renier. . . won libel damages in court from a critical skeptic [Merrell] who publicly said she was making fraudulent claims. Carl Wilber gazed down at a copy of A Mind for Murder handed to him by John Merrell in 2006. But unlike some exaggerations this one also carried over to a courtroom where Renier's fantasy visions helped defeat John Merrell before a 6-member jury in 1986. From 2006 to 2012 Merrell turned the tables and won judgments against Noreen Renier across four different U.S. federal courts. That testimony by Jessica Herbert helped Renier defeat Merrell in the small county courtroom in Oregon in 1986. But the same Robert Ressler, when contacted by Merrell in 1985 --- just months before court depositions were taken --- passed along erroneous information. In early June 2008 Cricket Frost (now known as Cricket Johnson) who once worked for the Department of Corrections agreed to add some additional new information for Noreen Renier's critic John Merrell. At that time she had worked for the Health and Human Services in New Hampshire for over a decade. Interviewed by Merrell she feels the Gardner crash never got real a completely thorough and open investigation. Indeed between Renier's testimony and the support comments from Jessica Herbert it appeared Merrell was attempting to silence someone with amazing psychic powers. And if Massachusetts realtor Jessica Herbert backed up psychic Noreen Renier how could Merrell be right about Noreen Renier being a fraud? For more than 30 years, television reporters and newspapers have repeatedly noted that Renier was vindicated by a jury after being libeled by a skeptic (Merrell). Renier's attorney in her lawsuit against Merrell in 1986 took almost 30 minutes in his closing arguments to the jury.

John Merrell Skeptic
(This is a segment of a multi-screen web site. You may wish to see HOME or the index at the bottom of this page) Renier critic John Merrell: His battle against pseudoscience and for child safety Among the critics of police psychics and particularly psychics who are paid public funds to provide paranormal testimony is John Merrell. Dr. Gary Posner, M.D., a collegue for more than 20 years with Merrell in critically examining many of the claims of psychics is also profiled with a link on this site. John Merrell has over the past 25 years investigated an assortment of quackery schemes and deceptions such as recent psychic stock picks for investors tied to non-existent funds. He has been honored on several occasions both at the federal and state level for his work. In late 2006 Merrell noted that "there are dozens of psychics who claim to be able summon the dead and have psychic powers of a God. According to Merrell some law enforcement personnel have knowingly sent journalists towards a fantasized psychic story --- always a easy story for TV and media drama --- as an apparent cover for flawed investigations or to 'play' a naive suspect. He has noted several times law enforcement personnel in so doing have managed to cover real issues they preferred the media to initially miss. Merrell has for more than 20 years also been a member of CHILD (Children's Healthcare Is A Legal Duty) a nonprofit US organization fighting religion-based medical neglect. In his efforts against pseudoscience claims he believes both law enforcement officials and the media share a responsibility for making sure claims are reported carefully and accurately.
