Joe McCarthy

Real Name: Joseph McCarthy
Case: Psychic Phenomenon
Location: Wausau, Wisconsin
Date: June 1987


Details: Eighteen-year-old college student Joe McCarthy returned from college in June 1987, to his Wausau, Wisconsin, home when he was killed in a car accident. His parents wondered if they would ever learn if he was okay. Three days after the funeral, Joe's father was in the garage when he found the angel that topped the Christmas tree, which was odd since the tree was in the attic and it was June. While Joe's mother was vacuuming, she found another Christmas ornament on the floor. They found that Joseph was written on the ornament, and they felt that it was a sign that he was okay.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the November 13, 1997 episode, along with Herman Stegos and Michael Landon.
