I Know Where Lizzie Is LMN Movie Synopsis
Lizzie Holden is a typical 15-year-old teen who lives in a beautiful home with her mother, Judith Holden. Though her parents are divorced, they have a good relationship and constantly look out for each other.
On what seems like any normal day, Lizzie disappears into thin air after a fight with her mother. Now, Judith and her ex-husband Martin Holden are in full panic mode as they try to find out who took Lizzie.
It appears that Lizzie was snatched by a masked kidnapper, and after 36 hours, the police holds a press conference, hoping that someone will come forward with information.
During the press conference, Martin stuns the crowd when he says that he is willing to pay $2 million dollars to find his daughter. Then, Tracy Spencer, a renowned psychic, boasts that she knows that Lizzie is alive. Though the police quickly usher her away from the crowd, Judith wants to speak with her to find out what she knows.
By now, The Martins are desperate to find any trace of Lizzie, and they hang on to psychic Tracy’s every word. However, the police believe that something is off about Tracy, causing them to launch a search of her home. Plus, the police are finding new clues that were not there during the first search.
Meanwhile, Tracy continues saying that Lizzie is alive but is being held against her will, causing Martin Holden to almost blow his top as he demands that Tracy give them an exact location. Now, Martin believes that the psychic is doing nothing more than exploiting them. But one tenacious reporter believes that Lizzie’s stepmother and the psychic may have a hidden agenda.
True-Story Cases Involving The Paranormal
As for being inspired by a true story, that’s always possible when you consider the many psychics who have been arrested for exploiting needy families who are desperate for some sort of information. In many of these cases, the psychics do not have true facts and often want money. However, in past investigations, there have been psychics who have provided information that have led to solving a case.
One that comes to mind is someone you wouldn’t call a psychic per se but, some years ago, a woman named Shay Nohr found the location of a missing teen named Laura Hatch, according to The Telegraph. Shay Nohr could actually see the location in a dream or a vision that she had about Laura Hatch’s disappearance. Hatch was eventually returned to her mother unharmed. The Lifetime movie based on the case was called Seventeen And Missing.
In reflecting on psychics and their ability to help solve cases, consider the case of Vivian King, an African American mother who wanted desperately to find out who killed her teen daughter, Shilie Turner. Shilie was a 17-year-old track star and an Olympic hopeful who vanished in Philadelphia on her way home. She had been missing for weeks before police brought in psychic Valerie Morrison, who went to Shilie Turner’s home and spoke with her mother Vivian. While there, Valerie Morrison touched several objects in the home and began to take on the spirit of Shilie. Vivian and Valerie were in an upstairs bedroom when police heard a horrible scream followed by Vivian frantically running down the stairs, insisting that they all get out.
After leaving the residence, the detectives asked Valerie what had prompted such a strong reaction in Shilie’s mother. The psychic later revealed that as she spoke in the voice of Shilie, she turned to the mother and asked “Where did you put me?”
According to Victor Zammit. Not long after, Shilie’s frozen body was found by a passerby, Vivian King ended up confessing to murdering her own daughter after they had a fight about her coming home late. In that same case, a radio journalist who had become very close with Vivian King also became suspicious and asked her if she had anything to do with her daughter’s death. A photo of Shilie Turner and her mother, Vivian King, can be seen in this Jet magazine article.
