Real Name: Joseph O'Brien
Case: Psychic Dreams
Location: Southern California
Date: January 1991
Details: In January of 1991, a Southern California man named Joe O'Brien was worried about his friend, Kuwati jet pilot Mohammed "Sammy" Mubarak, as the Operation Desert Storm began. He then saw Sammy on the television, and learned that he had been captured and was being held prisoner. One night, Joe had a strange and shocking dream. In his dream, he dreamt was actually Sammy, and that he was in a cold prison cell, and that all he had was a small blanket with an intricate pattern, and he realized that his wrists were sore. Shortly afterwards, Joe woke up and found that his wrists were sore, just like in his dream, and that the sore wrists lasted for over five days. A few weeks later, Iraq surrendered, and Sammy was released.
The following Christmas, Joe was reunited with Sammy, and told him about his strange dream. Surprisingly, everything that happened in Joe's dream was what actually happened to Sammy, down to and including the pattern on the blanket, as well as the very sore wrists, which happened because of tight handcuffs. Joe and Sammy believe that their friendship is what connected them together.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the October 20, 1995 episode.
