Real Name: David Elliot
Case: Unusual Phenomenon
Location: Rochester, New York
Details: In 1988, seventeen-year-old David Elliot died in a snow skiing accident in Rochester, New York. A few weeks later, his father John bought a book by psychic George Anderson called "We Don't Die" about another man who died in 1982 named David Licata. One night, John had a dream that he had a session with George. In the dream, George said that he saw his son and David Licata standing next to each other.
John then decided to go with his two other sons to a reading with George, and John sat in the back of the room, while his sons sat in the front. George said that John had lost a son, but then lightning struck and he lost his signal. George later said that John had lost a son that was seventeen.
He then went to David's brothers and said that the spirits of their grandparents were with them. He accurately noted that their names were Madeline and Donald. He then said that David's brother Mark played soccer, which was correct, and then connected him to David Licata. He finally said that John was the father of the two boys even though they sat on opposite sides of the room, and said that John lost a son named David. John, who was originally a skeptic, was convinced then that George was genuine and he became a believer.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the November 18, 1992 episode about psychic George Anderson.
