In what is very likely the first instance of such an excuse, a local Calgary woman has claimed that a visit by the deceased victim in a murder trial has compromised her objectivity as a juror. The Canadian juror, who self-identifies as a psychic medium, stated that the deceased "presented himself to me and made me feel what he went through as he was being killed, the intensity of his injuries, and the location of his wounds." Justice Glen Poelman, the judge presiding over the trial, has agreed to excuse the woman from further service.
Personally, I'd be interested to know if there is any way to corroborate what she says the ghost told her with elements of the case that have yet to be revealed to the jury. What do you think? Is this a convenient excuse to get out of jury duty, or haunting evidence of the paranormal?
Yours in Impossibility,
