    Lebanon County detectives thought they knew who killed Mark Arnold in 1993, but they didn't know where to find the perpetrator.

    Jan Helen McGee told them the killer was at a beach, probably Ocean City, Md., or Rehoboth Beach, Del. Detective Paul Zechman called the police departments there and, sure enough, they found Robert Wise living in Arnold's stolen car at a shopping mall near Rehoboth.

    Wise is serving a life sentence in state prison for the murder.

    She said she is going public now because she wants to teach police officers how to use psychics properly and avoid scams. She never seeks money for her insights, she said.

    On the night that Arnold, 61, was shot to death in the small building that he occupied in South Lebanon Twp., McGee had a nightmare about the murder, she said. The next morning, she read about it in the newspaper.

    She said she knew details of the case that surprised investigators, such as that Arnold had a collection of black rotary phones in his home.

    According to Eshleman, who prosecuted the case, Zechman didn't admit to her for several years that McGee had pointed him in the right direction. He told her only that "an anonymous source" had helped.

    Zechman said this week it wasn't that he was embarrassed, but at the time, "you didn't go around bragging about it."

    Eshleman said the motive for the murder was robbery.

    McGee said she thinks it was something more. She said she thinks Wise, who knew Arnold, envied him and wanted to be him. That is why he stole Arnold's car, wallet and other personal items and was wearing Arnold's boots when he was found, she contends.

    "What is creepy is that I can see the motivations of killers," McGee said.

    That is creep about how they can see the motivation of the killers, but great!! I guess all the psychics arent as bad as they seem :)

    When I was visiting Boulder, Colorado a couple of years ago( I am very interested in the Ramsey Murder) there was a psychic by Pearl Street Mall. She seemed very accurate and very nice. We ran overtime(she pays by every five mintues) and I didnt bring enough money with me at the time to pay her for the extra time, she said it was fine.

    Rehoboth Beach is known for it's gay friendly atmosphere. I think there are still
    "Bath houses" there. Sounds like the attraction to me....:twocents:
