Dimitry Sheinman, a self-described clairvoyant, is shopping a book that he has written about the 2004 murder of Sarah Fox, a killing that occurred in a New York City park where Sheinman used to walk his dog.
In the book, Is He Friendly?!, part of which is posted on his website, Sheinman details his visions. But his revelations have turned him into a prime suspect in the case.
The New York Observer reports: “Indeed, Mr. Sheinman’s claims do sound disturbing to some. According to Mr. Sheinman, detectives began suspecting him in the Fox case after his first psychic vision, which occurred while he was being questioned in the police precinct. He details the experience in the third chapter of his manuscript.”
Sheinman claims that by using his special skill, he can help the police investigate the case. On his website, he is even asking other clairvoyants to help.
Here is an excerpt from the book (in which he refers to himself as Victor):
Before exiting Inwood Hill Park, in the middle of the path Victor found a young woman lying with one arm under her head and the other outstretched, clasping the ground. For a second, Victor’s brain refused to perceive the woman’s horizontal placement, conditioned to joggers jogging, not laying dramatically sprawled on the park’s path … After an instant of disbelief dissolved into reality, he flipped open his cell and dialed 911.
