Police in Ghost Chase



North Wales police has defended spending £20,000 investigating a man's death after his ghost was said to have told psychics that gangsters had forced him to drink petrol and bleach.

Carlos Assaf, 32, a baker was found dead at his flat in Lampeter, after a row with his girlfriend, on 30 March.

An inquest this week recorded a verdict of suicide after hearing there was no evidence of foul play. However the coroner queried the murder inquiry held after mediums tipped off police, suggesting that the words "lion, a horse and a man called Tony Fox" were significant.

"There was a great deal of communication between the mediums and the police," he said. "A great deal of effort was expended in following these leads up."

Detectives had the harrowing and sometimes down right life threatening job of visiting a dozen pubs called the Red Lion and Black Horse from Burry Port to Tregaron. They even visited the Feathers hotel in Aberaeron because there is a statue of a horse outside.

The investigation involved not one but two postmortems because the west Wales police obviously had no faith in the initial findings.

If you really need to know more details you will find them here.

Maybe it was the spirits in the pubs that were talking to them?

Why are is the information from mediums always so cryptic? Why can't they say; "It was murder, the perpetrator is Charlie Bloggs aged 49 of 1a McTavish Lane, and if you go around there now you'll get him as he's at home watching 'X-Factor". Then I'd start to believe in the paranormal.

As it is, the information is useless. Doubly so to the police - how the hell do you beat a confession out of a ghost?
