Real Name: Jeanine Price
Case: Unusual Phenomenon
Location: Long Beach, California
Date: September 1994
Details: Jeanine Price of Long Beach, California, has endured several psychic episodes since she was a child. She has been able to read minds and predict the future as well. Jeanine claims it started when she was about ten years old. She had a strange and overwhelming feeling that she had a sister who she never met, which her mother denied. One day, she found a book of pictures in her attic including one of a girl whom she was certain was her sister. Her mother finally admitted that she had a half-sister named Judy from her father's previous marriage. She had a frightening premonition that once she met Judy, she would die and it would have something to do with blood in her head. In April 1980, Jeanine finally met her. Less than a year later, she was admitted to the hospital with severe headaches. When Jeanine got there, she realized that her childhood prediction was going to happen and Judy was going to die, but the doctor did not believe her. On August 8, 1980, Judy died from a brain aneurysm and Jeanine became depressed. In September 1994, Jeanine met with Dr. Michael Persinger, an expert in psychic phenomenon. He has tested thousands of psychic patients, including her, and believes that electric pulses from the brain cause predictions and other phenomena.
Several incidents related to electric pulses have occurred since Jeanine was a teenager. Once she was holding a coffee pot and it suddenly exploded in her hands. Dr. William Roll believes that the stress from her life builds up with the electricity and causes these strange things to happen. Another incident occurred due to stress of a divorce and raising two children at her mother's house. Pictures flew off the wall during an upsetting phone conversation, an electric shock and sparks went from her keys to the car when she tried to open it, and when she asked her son to heat her baby daughter's bottle in the microwave, he put in on the wrong setting, so she reset it and the microwave soon exploded. She called a repairman but he could not find any cause. Then, she was planning on ironing a shirt, but was continually distracted and became angry, and started doing so even though the iron wasn't even plugged in. This energy is called "psychokinesis" and nobody can explain why this happens to certain people, like Jeanine.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the February 3, 1995 episode.
