Noreen Renier badly distorts her results as an unsolved mystery and missing person psychic detective. Noreen Renier's credibility as a paranormal police psychic investigator isn't just awful --- her whole pretense of being a credible TV "super psychic" & FBI sleuth is a complete and utter sham. Six out of six federal judges from late 2005 to April 2012 ordered major judgments against Noreen Renier.
As of January 2013 there is more solid evidence to show that missing person psychic Noreen Renier boldly lies to the public.
In the past 40 years she has never walked
Recently authentic investigations supported with federal court subpoena's determined
psychic detective actress Noreen Renier
falsified "hundreds" of direct police agency hiring's. That's hundreds of police case direct hiring's
which never existed!
In 1989 "unsolved crime and missing person psychic detective" Noreen Renier falsely aroused the media and told reporter Jack Alexander that "I have very good vibes about this case . . . I know I can find the young lady."
Noreen Renier was talking about missing Gainesville Florida student Tiffany Sessions --- yet 23 years later the case remains unsolved and Renier's "good vibes" apparently were only to splash herself with plenty of media attention and leave another unsolved missing person case behind.
On January 16, 2013 Noreen Renier turned 76 years old and has for decades charged many grieving families with a lost child or adult $450 to $1000 to provide typically 45-60 minutes of "super-psychic" visions by telephone. Or on occasions when she reduced her now "normal" $1000 fees she's promoted herself and visions before cameras and the media. This is one woman who loves photos, TV cameras, and You Tube and Facebook postings. She appears to crave attention.
Except for when it involves her many losses in federal court rooms and judgments against her ordered by U.S. judges such as those in 2006, 2007, twice in 2011, and again in April 2012.
"Worse than worthless" was how one family member described missing person psychic Noreen Renier's $1000 paranormal detective images of locating the missing.
Even her former local Charlottesville Virginia Police Department rejected Noreen Renier's psychic investigative consultant offers to assist directly on their homicide, missing person, and criminal cases.
Author and psychic detective actress Noreen Renier has never been able to pinpoint the specific location of a missing child, missing girl, missing woman, or any missing person immediately in real time and then lead law enforcement officers directly to that victim. Instead Renier babbles a froth of nouns that usually months or years after-the-fact she attempts to match and blend with the circumstances of how others located and found the person.
Hundreds of her claims have been shown as distorted nonsense, and her horrible inaccuracies in describing one missing person scene have earned her a reputation for deceptions. One family member after learning from eye-witnesses about what actually happened described Noreen Renier's bogus visions as "hateful fantasy before the TV cameras. She apparently has no shame about lying about the victims. She even lied about the people who actually helped find him lying there and said she found him instead. That's just evil. Her's are monstrous lies."
Noreen Renier doesn't like to be asked specifics by investigators or critics. On her own web site as of April 6, 2011 she states "Leading questions are unproductive; ones such as "Is his hair black?" "Was he driving a blue Ford?" Instead, let me describe him/her to you, as well as any other pertinent information. Questions should have directions and not merely need a "yes" or "no" answer."
In other words the more vague the questions the more vague she can be --- while still claiming to be right. The odds of being right or wrong on "yes" and "no" questions is too great for her to risk answering.
She doesn't like being seen as wrong. So she only accepts and deals in vague visions and disconnects. And her portrayals before TV cameras for series like "Psychic Detectives" have been labeled talent entertainment not realism. Indeed a check signed by a Story House Productions officer (which produces the TV series) referenced on the check "talent" payment for Noreen Renier and was just one of many that went thousands of dollars beyond the initial payments to Renier of more than $20,000.
Both on TV and before clients she makes bold statements. Like claiming "I can find Tiffany Sessions --- dead or alive." Noreen Renier even claimed that after feeling a toothbrush of Tiffany's that "it gave off enough energy for a psychic reading." Do you believe Noreen Renier has supernatural powers to talk to the dead and read paranormal energy off a toothbrush?
If so, she certainly lacks credibility when authentic and trained investigators --- not TV entertainment series producers --- actually do the checking of her claims and skip over the two or three poorly trained township "police detectives" often used before cameras.
Renier's public detective partners apparently can't even solve their own local cases but turn to Noreen Renier to speak with the dead through toothbrushes and attempt to locate persons by hanging pendulums over maps.
One State Police forensic lab officer called such low-level parish and township law enforcement personnel "about as likely as a head of lettuce to solve a missing person case or understand a real crime scene. They wouldn't last 30 seconds as employees in any law enforcement agency with forensic training. They are traffic cops well out of their league."
Not surprisingly Renier's "super psychic" efforts failed to locate Tiffany Sessions as weeks went on. And her media interplay changed.
On March 23, 1989 psychic actress Noreen Renier told reporter Luisa Yanez with the [Florida] Sun Sentinel in Miami that she sensed Tiffany Session was dead. It was a reasonable guess as the college student had by then been missing for over 40 days with no word to friends and family, and police already suspected foul play.
Renier also admitted to reporter Yanes that “I don`t like to make statements that someone is dead [because] in another case, I said the body would be found and it was, but the girl was still alive, so I don`t like to make predictions.”
Yet initially Renier had said she had "good vibes" and would find the girl. "Dead or alive" --- so she clearly didn't want to be pinned down. Then as time went on she felt the girl was dead. Then she said she didn't like to make predictions even though she had and had already been wrong on two and agreeing with the police on the third.
One has to wonder if she charged the parents of the other girl who was found alive after first saying that girl was dead.
What is clear is that "FBI investigator" Noreen Renier likes being the center of attention and standing before cameras and reporters and pretending she has special abilities. Or falsely claiming that she worked on "several" investigations for the FBI --- another one of her exaggerations. Renier has never been used in FBI investigations and her claims of directly being hired by state police agencies are also untrue.
But more than twenty years later the Tiffany Sessions case remains unsolved and Noreen Renier hasn't been able to move the Florida case forward. And she's failed to document now --- before Tiffany is found --- exactly and specifically where, when, and how this case will end. Apparently psychic actress Noreen Renier prefers to wait for cases to be solved by others and then announce that she foresaw the same results beforehand even as she quickly creates some after-the-fact visionary match-ups.
For years Noreen Renier has claimed connections with vast law enforcement agencies across more than 150 cities but where's her public list of those agencies? Why has she falsely claimed to have been involved with "several" FBI investigations and a book authored by Renier and published in June 2011 claims she is an "investigator for the FBI" when she is not?
Public law enforcement agencies are required to name their paid consultants --- so why won't Noreen Renier provide such a dated agency list showing herself as a directly sanctioned and paid consultant like she claims? It is now extremely likely that she has been peddling decades of non-existent or exaggerated police agency interaction claims. Just like claiming to have been a "super psychic" crime and missing person investigator.
It's a bit like claiming to have won medals and awards but not willing to say where and from whom.
And as noted elsewhere on this site TV producers have paid her thousands of dollars as "talent" to entertain during psychic re-enactments but the productions are lacking in credibility. Indeed they often duplicate many of the known charades which populate her biography A Mind For Murder and her 2011 book A Practical Psychic.
Additionally her increasingly fantastic claims of having paranormal and supernatural powers including regularly communicating back and forth with animals and trees --- and in her own court testimony claiming she talks with both ghostly entities and the dead --- have also raised questions even among former psychic supporters.
After 30 years federal and state police agencies recognize that Noreen Renier's paranormal investigative claims are both troublesome and offer no consistent accuracy beyond random chance --- and during actual research testing in front of dozens of Southern Oregon College participants she "completely self-imploded" scoring an immediate zero rating from among 49 selected performance scenarios!
The small handful of law enforcement officers who have provided public assessments or support for using crime soothsayers and psychic mediums like Renier are often small township and county personnel with no training or experience in how paranormal proponents use exaggeration and "after the fact" connective targeting.
Renier's own publisher of her 2005 book titled A Mind For Murder told a judge in 2007 that they had immediately halted the publication of her book. Dozens of pages were later withdrawn from publication and more than 50 references to her critics scattered throughout her book were eliminated by her publisher.
And on March 21, 2011 a federal judge noted that Noreen Renier was not "a credible witness" and that she "misled the court." And on July 22, 2011 after examining her 42-page appeal of that decision a U.S. District court rejected her entire appeal and ruled in agreement with the first court. That was followed by a rejection of an even longer 69-page appeal by Renier on April 18, 2012 by the second highest appeal's court.
Noreen Renier has now had six federal judges rule against her since 2006. Noreen Renier is not credible. Noreen Renier's public deceptions surrounding her hundreds of "directly hired" cases from police agencies are constructed from lies. Various Noreen Renier email and Facebook posting recipients agree she massively misleads and deceives.
Likely relatives and friends of Tiffany Sessions would agree if asked about "psychic detective" Noreen Renier's pathetic promise. For more details link to the Noreen Renier profile page below.
