Background: As a young girl, Etta Smith claimed to have odd feelings about future events, but it wasn't until she was thirty-two that Etta realized she had psychic powers. She had a psychic experience while working at an aerospace facility on December 17, 1980. She heard a news bulletin about the disappearance of a nurse named Melanie Uribe, and Etta had a psychic vision of where Melanie's body would be found. A few days later, Etta and her daughter located Melanie's body.
Detectives thought she was involved and she was arrested for Melanie's murder. However, the real killers later confessed, and Etta was released soon after. She continues to help police departments solve cases with her psychic abilities to this day.
