Psy­chics lend weight to real life mys­ter­ies in screen fi­nale

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

CHAN­NEL 7’s search for Aus­tralia’s best psy­chic, The One ends when three psy­chics go head to head in their fi­nal stu­dio chal­lenge this week.

The trio each use their psy­chic abil­i­ties to de­cide which of seven boxes on a podium con­tain gold bars. Given only five min­utes, they must nom­i­nate which boxes con­tain the gold bars and which boxes are empty. The trio will then at­tempt to solve a real-life po­lice case. Their task: to find the re­mains of Kerry Whe­lan, a 39-yearold mother of three, who was kidnapped for ran­som on May 6, 1997. Cir­cum­stan­tial ev­i­dence led to the con­vic­tion and im­pris­on­ment of a fam­ily friend Bruce Bur­rell, who is be­lieved to have mur­dered Whe­lan and dis­posed of her body on his prop­erty at Bun­go­nia, near Goul­burn. De­spite ex­ten­sive po­lice searches, Mrs Whe­lan’s re­mains have never been found.

The psy­chics are briefed by a former po­lice of­fi­cer and have a helicopter and 4WD to as­sist them in the search. Any in­for­ma­tion will be passed on to po­lice.
