I like playing detective and often wish I could follow leads in a more formal way, like an investigative journalist or PI (private investigator). One example, I talked to a person who I found to be credible a few years ago about a doctor who practiced in Kalispell in the 70’s. This doctor allegedly used hypnosis and possibly other techniques on female patients to gratify himself sexually. There was a trial at one point that made headlines. I have since forgotten the doctor’s name, but at the time looked it up and did confirm he existed. He was even the head of some national medical association.
If you are interested in true crime and want to hear incredibly interesting stories from people connected to some pretty big cases, you should check out Ed Opperman. I’ve been borderline obsessed with the Opperman Report for months as he brings his PI/Christian perspective and personal experience to the topics he covers.
That Ed Opperman identifies as a Christian may turn some people off, but I don’t really care. I deeply identify with Opperman because I am researching the same topics he covers–topics I don’t share much on this blog–and because of that have reinvested some attention into the spiritual power of what Jesus represents.
