Training for law enforcement in Interviewing and Interrogation
New Jersey State
April 2003

I retired after 25 years of service with the New Jersey State Police. After being a road trooper for five years, I became a detective and was assigned to the Polygraph Unit. For the next 20 years I conducted polygraph tests on suspects and informants for all law enforcement agencies throughout the state. During that time, I assisted in many major investigations including the Iceman case (3 HBO specials have aired) and the Megan Kanka homicide (Megan's Law).

From time to time I would hear that a psychic had been consulted on a case. In general, detectives were very cautious in accepting their opinions. Often the information was seen as being too general to be of any assistance.

In 1995 I obtained a copy of Psychic Detective written by Nancy Orlen Weber. I was amazed to read about her involvement in many cases I had worked. I was even more impressed by her accuracy. She gave police specific, relevant, and concrete information early on in investigations that proved to be absolutely correct! I wondered why I had not heard of her impressions while I was involved in testing suspects in the case. But I realized that often her conclusions did not mesh with police theories. She did all she could but she could not make people believe her. However, in each case, her information proved to be entirely correct. Since I had worked on these cases I knew all of the police officers mentioned in her book. So I began calling them to see if this was all true. Not only did all of the officers vouch for the information in the book, they told me that Nancy actually did more in some cases than she had related.

But I did not really need their endorsement, as I had lived the cases. In her chapter "Murder Close to Home", Nancy writes about a woman who was murdered in her home. Police focused on her daughter and some male friends of the victim because there did not appear to be any forced entry into the apartment. In addition, the murder weapon was from her kitchen. Their conclusions were sound based on the evidence at hand. Nancy told them early on that it was a stranger – a male stalker who lived in Netcong. She told them that he had watched her and had committed other crimes. She said that he had entered through the kitchen window. Investigators did not think that anyone had come through that window. We ended up polygraphing twelve potential suspects – friends and acquaintances who the victim may have let in. I remember one day that a detective told me they had talked to a psychic and she had given the initials of the murderer; "NM". I remember going through the list of people we were testing to see if any of them matched. We cleared everyone we tested. About nine months after the murder, police in Netcong conducted a search warrant on a burglary suspect and found a stack of newspaper articles about the murder in Mt. Olive. They checked the man's fingerprints and matched them to an unidentified fingerprint that had been lifted from the victim's kitchen window. His name was Nicholas Muscio and he was found guilty of the murders. He had not known the victim. As I read further into Nancy's story she wrote about the victim's daughter and how much she had suffered emotionally at being considered a suspect in her mother's death. I knew about the daughter's feelings because we had polygraphed her and cleared her as a suspect about 5-6 months after the murder.

I then read "Serial Killer" about the murders of Amy Hoffman and Deidre O'Brien. I kept close tabs on that case as I worked with the investigating detectives. We later polygraphed the killer, James Koedatich, and found out what a sadistic psychopath he was. Even though he was on death row, he bragged that he would kill again before he was ever put to death. Then the chapter titled "Unsolved Murder" about Princess Doe. Another case I had worked on through the years. It is still ongoing but there are some interesting points that may yet be verified. In "Is He a Serial Killer", Nancy discussed the murder of a woman in Belvedere. I had been brought in to polygraph two suspects. They both passed their polygraph tests and I cleared them. But a few days later I received a phone call that the second person, John Reese, had been brought back in for questioning and confessed to the murder! In my entire career running the polygraph, this is the only known error that I made. Imagine my surprise when I read in Nancy's book that the detective was quoted as saying that it was her identification of Reese that directly led to him being brought back in! Thank God for Nancy. Because of her, Reese was caught. Even though I am retired from the New Jersey State Police, I still conduct polygraph examinations and consult on open cases. I do not hesitate to recommend that investigators contact Nancy for help on their cases. In fact, I feel I would be remiss if I did not. She is a valuable resource for law enforcement.

Co-Founder and Partner, the E and K Investigations Group, LLC
Founder and President, English Investigations, Inc.

Ross English is credited with 25 years of law enforcement in New Jersey and 12 years of Criminal Defense Investigations in North Carolina and then becoming a Partner of the E and K Investigations Group, LLC.

Prior to becoming a partner of the E and K Investigations Group, Mr. English retired after 25 years from the Mt. Olive Township Police Department in New Jersey as a Detective Lieutenant in command of the department's detective bureau.

Ross English writes:
I first met Nancy in 1980 when one of my female police officers introduced her to me when I had reached a dead end on a rape murder case. The victim was found floating in the local lake and the cause of death was drowning and an injury to the head. Nancy was able to describe the suspected crime scene and basically what took place and the physical features of our suspect. That information was locked in my desk for almost a year in a file at the police station. I followed up on the information received and reinterviewed the suspect and was able to get a confession.

Nancy continued to work with me on several more cases after that. One was a burglary at their home where a rifle and other items were taken. She was able to point out where I could find a laten print left by a perpetrator which I developed and lifted. She was also able to describe 2 juveniles, where they lived and where they hid the rifle. I investigated further, obtained a search warrant and found the gun. I arrested the 2 juveniles who confessed.

On another case I needed help to find an officer in my Police department who was suspected of wrong doing. I was the Internal Affairs Officer at the time. After showing her every photograph of every police officer she chose one. She could not tell me if that officer was responsible for the specific thing I was looking into but did tell me he was "ruthless, dangerous and responsible for other wrong doings". Within 2 years an investigation conducted by myself, County, State and Federal authorities netted the police officer with over 100 indictments.

Another case that stood out in my mind was the murder of a police officer. Other police investigators and myself were working on the case and I called Nancy for her input. After speaking to her she described a farm house across the state line and some vehicles. The other officers would not listen to her and her information was scrapped. Months later it was discovered that the perpetrators had been staying in a farm house across the state line using it as a Safe House where they eventually moved on.

There were other numerous cases which I feel were worthy of her assistance and are memorialized in my mind. In 1989 I retired from my Police Department and migrated to North Carolina. Nancy visited me in 1993 and helped me through a bout of prostate cancer. In addition I was a criminal investigator for the North Carolina Public Defenders Office at that time and she assisted me on a murder case where I knew the defendant was not guilty. She was able to go to the crime scene, describe evidence and pick out the suspect from a photo line-up. Subsequently the suspect was arrested in south Carolina for another murder and is doing a life sentence awaiting trial in the North Carolina murder.

Nancy and I have kept in touch over the years and consult from time to time over the telephone.
