I thought it time we spoke publicly regarding the topic of psychic Robbie Thomas. Many concerned friends have contacted me regarding the publicity forum Mr. Thomas is using to promote his upcoming Psychic Justice Tour, which contains information relating to his phantom involvement with Karen’s homicide investigation. I think Psychic Predator best describes how my family feels about Robbie Thomas. For the record, my sisters and I met with Robbie Thomas ONCE five years ago. It was after this one time visit that we decided, in the best interest of Karen, we would never again have anything to do with this man. Mr. Thomas asked if we would sign forms, so he could USE Karen in one of his books as he carefully outlined the matter of book proceeds. My sisters and I immediately made the watchful decision, that no one would ever use Karen to make money. As a result of this meeting, we have had nothing to do with Mr. Thomas, except when he took it upon himself to phone and harass a member of our family because of our decision. We want this man to stop exploiting our dead sister and the horrific manner in which her life was ended.
We know it is hard for people to understand why a family like ours would even consider going to a psychic. I can tell you, the degree of pain and suffering a family endures over an unsolved homicide has everything to do with why families seek this kind of unrealistic help. A family’s life-long torment can be blinding. We have learned there will always be psychic predators waiting in the wings ready to use our desperate situation for their own self-interests. My family takes full responsibility for seeking out Robbie Thomas but we had no idea at the time this would be Robbie Thomas’s ticket to maintain control over this aspect of our lives, as he continues to manipulate our situation to gain credibility with the public. He chooses not to question why our family has had no contact with him since 2005, as he continues to cling to a one-time meeting to justify his right to continue to use our sister’s murder for self-promotion. From our position, there is nothing lower in life than what this man is doing. We have proceeded in contacting the people who are sponsoring his tour and informed them that our family is disgusted, appalled and very distraught over the statements being made by Robbie Thomas regarding Karen’s murder, which he is using as advertisement on his various different websites, in attempts to draw in ticket buyers. I was advised that Robbie Thomas assured his sponsors, all families were notified and he gained permission from the relatives of the numerous victims, which Robbie Thomas is targeting and exploiting. My family never received a phone call from Mr. Thomas, so we can only assume Mr. Thomas lied to his sponsors. The only psychic ability Robbie Thomas obtains stems from his real abilities to manipulate the truth, to be able to attract society’s natural morbid curiosity while preying on the dark desperation of homicide families and families of missing children. He claims his psychic justice tour will donate $5.00 of every ticket sold to organizations like Missing and Exploited Children but where does Robbie Thomas get off thinking he has the right to exploit murdered children in order to achieve this? Robbie Thomas also wastes the very valuable time of police investigators. Their time should be spent seeking answers for homicide victims not being harassed by him, so he in-turn can cease the opportunity to manipulate their words to gain false credibility with the public.
He covers his legal ass by adding in small print that his services are for entertainment purposes only…yet there is nothing entertaining about using unsolved child murders and missing children. We as Karen’s family have been relentless in seeking the predators that murdered our sister and today we are forced to deal with a different kind of predator, the kind that hopes to make money off her murder, the kind that lurks in the shadows hoping to one-day benefit off the resolve of her murder through his self-proclaimed false predictions? There should be laws enforced in Canada, to protect victims and their families from people like Robbie Thomas. This fellow human being doesn’t seem to comprehend missing and murdered children are not commodities; they are not up for his taking for the purpose of improving ticket sales or to enhance one’s annual income. He did not have enough respect for the very grave conditions we continue to live under, to seek our permission first, before we distraughtly began reading his fraudulent statements pertaining to Karen’s unsolved murder on his numerous promotional websites. Mr. Thomas also has a Crime Stoppers poster of Karen hanging in his home, which he continues to use as he is advising people he is working with the police on Karen’s unsolved murder. This would certainly instill credibility with people who are not aware of the TRUTH. We would like Mr. Thomas to put the poster back on whichever telephone pole he removed it from. My family hung the posters for the purpose of generating public TIP information, not for Mr. Thomas to USE to mislead people while promoting himself as a psychic. He has done nothing for my family but contribute to the turmoil we continue to live with over Karen’s unsolved murder. I’m certain of one thing regarding Mr. Thomas; if the day should arrive when Karen’s killers are arrested, he will be skulking in the wings attempting to make such a glorious day about him…because this is what Robbie Thomas is really all about.
The Caughlin Family/Karen’s Voice
Note: This letter was provided to me by the Caughlin family with permission to post it. I have expressed concern about the actions of Robbie Thomas (and others) and it is hard, after reading a posting as above, to feel anything but the utmost contempt for anyone trying to further abuse a family as Robbie has done.
Note: March 3, 2010 - Since people are ignorant to some of the facts, I feel I need to add the following screen captures. Robbie Thomas WAS actively advertising "involvement" in the Karen Caughlin case. I have newspaper articles and countless websites. Here are two screen captures of sites that were (are?) promoting his most recent "tour" - one has been updated to remove Karen's name but the other has not (as of 10:30 AM, EST, March 3, 2010). The updated one can still be viewed in Google cache. (Click on the images for larger views)
The following was sent to me be a visitor to this blog. Robbie is still using the Caughlin case for promotion. (Click for a larger image)
Since people asked nicely, here are the links for the three above files:
