TV psychic’s ‘Maddie dead’ claim - Derek Acorah

Post by jd on 15.05.12 1:18

Here's another one in todays sun!! yawn yawn.....snooze notlistening

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/4316621/TV-psychic-Derek-Acorah-in-sick-Maddie-dead-claim.html

PSYCHIC Derek Acorah has outraged Kate and Gerry McCann by insisting daughter Madeleine is dead.

TV psychic’s sick ‘Maddie dead’ claim - Spirit told me she’s gone, says Acorah

The TV medium, who claims a messenger from the spirit world gave him the information, said: “She’s not on this earth any more.”

A source close to the McCanns said: “They are sickened by this.”

Acorah, 62, has added to Kate and Gerry’s anguish by claiming Madeleine died years ago — and will soon be reincarnated.

He said: “I know her parents are convinced Maddie is alive and I’m really sorry - but the little one has been over in the spirit world for some time.

“I don’t think she’ll be there long before she reincarnates.

“When children pass over who haven’t had full lives I believe they choose the time to come back in the same form again — as another little girl.”

The McCanns are said to be disgusted by Acorah’s claims. A source said: “Kate and Gerry are sickened. This character Derek Acorah is nothing but a self-publicist. It’s incredibly distasteful and insensitive

Millionaire medium Acorah, ex-host of TV’s Most Haunted, claimed a messenger from the spirit world named Sam told him Madeleine was dead — shortly after she vanished in Praia da Luz, Portugal, five years ago.

He said: “I got asked to go over there at the very beginning and I said to my wife that I was going to go. But then she showed me some emails from a number of psychics who were already there.

“There were four of them and they were coming to a blank.”

Acorah claimed he sought guidance by contacting Sam — his spirit “guide”. He said: “I sat in my meditation room and I asked the spirit world and Sam confirmed she was dead. It is horrible but he said there was no purpose for me to go there.

“He said the reason the others cannot get a link is because the little one had already come over. She’s not on this earth any more.”

Acorah said he decided not to go to Portugal to spare the McCanns unnecessary suffering.

He added: “I wasn’t going to bring extra misery to them. I do know that they will find out what happened to Maddie one day.” Acorah made his claims days after the McCanns marked the fifth anniversary of three-year-old Madeleine’s disappearance from the holiday resort. He was speaking while promoting his latest tour.

Detectives are following more than 100 leads — many of which suggest Madeleine is still alive.

A spokesman for the McCanns said: “Kate and Gerry believe their daughter is alive and the Metropolitan Police are currently pursuing an investigation to that effect.

“If anyone credible has any credible evidence that she is alive they should come forward.”


Acorah last night said he was surprised that his comments had upset the McCanns.

He added: “I was only making those statements to explain why I didn’t go to Portugal.

“I would hate to offend or upset the McCanns as a parent myself.”

Acorah caused offence in 2009 by claiming Michael Jackson’s ghost contacted him at a seance.

And in 2005 George Best’s friends accused him of cashing in after he claimed he would speak with the dead football legend.

Kate, 44, and Gerry, 43, are still raising cash to support their continuing hunt for Madeleine.

Scotland Yard are analysing 40,000 pieces of information.

They believe Madeleine may still be alive — but have been unable to get Portuguese police to reopen their failed investigation.

I am wondering what is the real reason behind all these physic sightings that have been coming out in the Sun recently. What are they building up to? Together with martin brunt/SY trying to convince everyone to take them seriously and credible 'evidence'....Somethings not quite right, its strange

Its interesting that Acorah says he 'was asked' to go to PDL, just like Diane Lazarus and Amanda Hart were, and then their amazing visions on the harbour. Its seems in the initial days the mccanns were asking all the physics/mediums they could think off, as well as asking all wealthy financiers to back them and donate to the fund...mmmmmmm....Little Maddie seems to have been lost through all this

I thought they wanted all the 195 leads following up. This is surely just one of them.
Probably fairly accurate as well ! (Well a 50% chance at least !)

One has to wonder if Acorah is batting for TM or for us sceptics.

His comments are carefully worded - the parents will find out what happened to her. No mention of swarthy abductors etc.

Very risky move for him - he's been exposed cheating a couple of times in the past so I hope he's been keepin it real recently otherwise TM might bare their fangs.

"It’s incredibly distasteful and insensitive"
My thoughts exactly, on the whole sorry thing!
Either they are listening to pschics or not. Anyone with half a brain must realise that in all probability MBM is no longer with us.
As a sane and reasonable parent, I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that after 5 years I would rather belive that my daughter had passed and could rest in peace, than continuing to torture myself with what-ifs..........................

I agree. It is clear they wont be following up on the leads that indicates she is dead. If they want to use Psychics all Psychics should be counted in. #McCanns can't stand to hear the truth.

I knew that Derek Acorah knew Maddie was dead years back, it was publicized! BUT has he re-iterated it or have The Scum purely re-cycled it?
Personally, I don't see anything 'sick' in Derek's so 'rant' - indeed they sound like comforting words.
To the poster who asked if he's batting for Team McCann, I believe the answer to be 'no'.
I shall not, for obvious reasons (jatyk2 loony word-twisting weirdo's etc) fully state my view on spirit etc. Just to say I'm fully 'open'. Anyone like-minded will know what I mean.

So we have:
Gonçalo Amaral
Eddie and Keela
Derek Acorah all telling us Maddie is dead.

On the other hand, we have;
The McCanns who 'truly believe she is out there' (of course - though is that alive or...?)
Andy Redwood: "She may be alive, or sadly, she may be dead"

I know which side I sit Sad

Just had another thought (yes, it did hurt Wink)
If Derek is all about 'self-publicizing' and not truth, he would jump on the McCann-Maddie-IS-alive-and-findable bandwagon?
He would've been guranteed a double page spread.
What a load of f*****g t*s***s...

I have respect for Derek Acorah in that he hasn't gone along with "no evidence she's been harmed" mantra as, if he had, he would have endeared himself both to Team McCann and Sun readers.

Can someone please post the photo of Kate and Gerry (holding the age-enhanced image) directly onto the forum? It looks as if Gerry is having difficulty not smirking!

OMG!!

3 reasons why this report is complete cob*****!

1. quote ' The reason why the other psychics can't get a link is because the little one had already come over, she's not on this earth any more' - I thought that's what psychics did - pick up on dead peoples thoughts, vibes etc!! So what a ridiculous comment by DA, does he believe he is the only psychic able to do this?

2. quote 'Whilst promoting his latest tour' - ticket sales must be bad then.

3. quote ' The MC are still raising cash to support their continuing hunt for Madeleine'

So all in all this article is a winner for two people DA who wants to sell more tickets for his latest tour and the MCs who are still raising cash!!

So utterly boring on both counts!

'They believe Madeleine may still be alive — but have been unable to get Portuguese police to reopen their failed investigation'.
From the Sun article.

I'm getting fed up with this. Isn't it time we started a campaign to get:

a piece of paper
an enveloppe
a stamp

I'm quite willing to write the letter to the PJ and type it out and pay for international recorded delivery. All they'd have to do is sign it. I'll even lick the stamp!

Draft:
From: Gerald and Kate McCann, Rothley. Leicestershire ( fill in full titles and address)

Dear Sirs,

Hereby we would respectfully ask your cooperation in re-opening the investigation into the disappearance of our daughter Madeleine McCann.

We hereby agree to any actions you think necessary to accomplish this and we will do our utmost to help you discover what happened to our beloved child.

Yours faithfully,

(Signed by both parents)

HAHAHAHA big grin

Me thinks this letter might get abducted (sorry!)

Seriously though I totally agree with you, they bleat on and on about the failed investigation so why not allow a reopening of the case? Perhaps they know this will be the beginning of the end of their 'fairy tale'.

I'll wager that's one psychic prediction the Yard won't be investigating! Only pro mediums ergo not very good ones and fluffy bunny dreamers need apply.

I like Tigger's letter. We could probably turn it into a petition and get the whole nation to sign it ..... all bar two that is big grin big grin

Kate, 44, and Gerry, 43, are still raising cash to support their continuing hunt for Madeleine.

I suppose the next thing we`ll be hearing is that some child is a reincarnation of Maddie - imagine the lolly that could be made out of that !

Or, Maddie surprisingly turns up somewhere and is turned into a miracle like Lazarus rising from the dead. All good money making stuff.

Different take from Daily Mail, he's now flying to Portugal........

Now psychic hunts for missing Madeleine: TV medium Derek Acorah vows to fly to Portugal to search for missing child 'and turn findings over to police'

Psychic says he will visit apartment where she vanished from to pick up what spirits say
TV medium, 62, says if she is dead she will be reincarnated as 'another little girl'

By Rob Cooper
PUBLISHED: 11:29, 15 May 2012 | UPDATED: 11:44, 15 May 2012

Psychic Derek Acorah has today vowed to fly to Portugal join the hunt for missing Madeleine McCann and turn his findings over to police.
After a £2million Scotland Yard review and a five-year long worldwide search the television medium says he hopes he can solve the mystery - as he promotes his theatre tour.

Mr Acorah, 62, said he would fly to Praia da Luz to see if 'the spirits' can solve the mystery of what happened.
'In the spirit world': Derek Acorah, right, is joining the search for Madeleine McCann and claims she will be reincarnated as another little girl

Kate and Gerry McCann have always insisted that their missing daughter may still be alive. They recently marked the fifth anniversary of their daughter's disappearance.

Mr Acorah said that if Madeleine is dead she may well be reincarnated as another little girl.
More...'That wasn't Maddie... it was my daughter': Swiss father says he was mystery man seen driving blonde girl identical to Madeleine days after she vanished

'No one knows whether she has died but with children if they didn't have full lives they are reincarnated quite quickly,' he said.
'I am willing to go over to Portugal to help search for Madeleine. I will go to the place where she went missing and see what I can pick up.
Anguish: Madeleine's parents Kate and Gerry McCann with a picture of their daughter as she would appear aged nine. They have never given up hope that she is still alive
'I would ask the world of spirits in the area what happened and anything I found out I would pass over to police to help with their investigation.'
Psychic: Derek Acorah said today he is willing to go to Portugal to help with the police investigation
He added that 'no one' knew if Madeleine was dead.
Critics have questioned why the television psychic has waited until now to join the search for the missing child - as he promotes a tour.
Psychic Derek - who used to host TV's Most Haunted - was allegedly exposed as a faker by psychologist Dr Ciaran O'Keeffe.
While filming at Bodmin gaol in Cornwall he said he was being possessed by Kreed Kafer - an anagram of Derek Faker - which Dr O'Keeffe had invented and mentioned when he was within earshot.
Mr Acorah said there were four mediums in Portugal at the time and he 'didn't want to get in their way'.
'It was in my mind to go over and search for Madeleine when she first disappeared but there were already four mediums over there,' he added.

'I was surplus to requirements and I'm not going to be getting in another medium's ground.'
The £2million police review of the Madeleine McCann case will examine calls from psychics which were previously ignored, it has been revealed.
Detectives are studying around 100 logs of calls that were discounted because the callers said they were psychics or had dreamt about the high-profile investigation.

Critics said the decision to include information from ‘supernatural’ sources was a waste of resources.
Scotland Yard officers who have been called in to review the case last month released a new picture of how Madeleine would look now as a nine-year-old.
A team of 35 Metropolitan Police officers are examining more than 100 leads as they renew the hunt for the missing child.
Mr Acorah said today he never went over to Portugal to join in the search because other psychics were already there.

I'm actually really angry about this.
I have just been into Tesco's to get my stir and serve soup (stop sniggering there at the back, jd! Wink) - I didn't realise it was front bloody page!

As I stated earlier, Mr Acorah mentioned this not long after the 'event' so WHY all the bru haha NOW?

Could it be I wonder because Snr Amaral's book hits the shelves in PT again today?
Makes you think...
