The Two Generations Of Real-Life Psychics Who Helped Police Solve Murders

Kym Durham makes up one-half of a generational lineage of psychics along with her mom, Joan Friel Durham. Joan Friel Durham’s obituary states that she was a “noted psychic” who “often used her skills to assist law enforcement and she consulted with business and industry in the US [sic.] and abroad,” per Smith Funeral Home. Kym Durham’s website states that she “inherited her extrasensory gifts from her mother,” who died in 2010. Growing up, “I thought all moms talked to dead people,” Kym told Philly Voice. “Mom didn’t make it scary; she was matter of fact,” she continued, citing her first experience seeing a spirit at age four.

And yet Kym didn’t originally follow in her mother’s footsteps. She went into nursing and worked at the “intersections of science, medicine and communications with the dead,” but “kept her abilities to herself.” Following an accident in 2007, she pivoted to mediumship and opened an office in Collingswood, New Jersey. Her abilities, she states, amount to clairaudience (extrasensory hearing), clairvoyance (extrasensory knowledge), and clairsentience (extrasensory intuition). By and large, she uses these abilities to pass along messages between the living and those who “earned their wings,” as her website explains. In addition to consultations, private and group readings, live events, and whatnot, she also aids police in missing person cases, robberies, murders, and works with a grief support group as a resident medium.
