    Hi, I used to know Angela Blackmoore. I read what you had to say about the sensing murder episode about her. I picked more holes in the story telling than even you did...lol. But, I knew Angie very well whereas you did not.
    Anyway, I'm really only letting you know that 31st January was Angela's birthday, not the day she died, as you state. She was murdered on the night of Thursday 17 August 1995.
    I watched that sensing murder episode and had watched others prior to it. I have never watched the program since.
    Wish I could tell you more, but for the sake of Angela's family who have suffered enough for too long with it remaining unsolved, I will leave it here.

    Thanks for that correction. You are quite right, the date we had for the murder was wrong. As you say, the 31st Jan was Angela's birthday. I've had a very quick review of the episode to see where we might have picked up the wrong date and I think they only mention the "17th of August 1995" as the date of the murder once, and her birthday not at all. There is one quick shot of the 'headstone' at the cemetery and you can just make out the date of birth on it. I suspect the place we got the false date is from the following summaries of Sensing Murder episodes at 'www.tv.com' which gives 31st Jan as the date of the murder.

    We've changed our article to reflect the correct date. Thanks again for pointing out our error. Like you I don't watch the program anymore either.

    I was up early reading your website, I fully believe also with what you state.

    I just wanted to absolutely confirm (because I know Laurie) to you that Laurie (Her finance) DEFINITELY still has a "family" portrait on the lounge wall at his address, I have no doubt that they would have seen it, you know one of those large framed professionally done photos.

    The Photo is of Laurie Anderson, Angela Blackmore & Son.

    Laurie is always modifying that Aranui Home.

    Sensing Murder, what a crock of ...

    I lived with Angela in a foster home and went to the same high school as her. We lost touch when I moved to Australia. Just hope they find her killer

    I was married to Angela's Half sister. Not that I'm sure how many people even know this. Regardless of the show I can say her mum and step-dad never recovered from losing their daughter and both died before they were able to bring their daughters killer to justice. Their daughter vowed to never give up the quest to find the truth.

    I can only imagine the heartbreak that family and friends go through when an event like this happens, and worse still when there is no resolution. That's why it annoys me when their grief is needlessly compounded by having their hopes raised and then dashed when these silly psychics fail (and they always fail) to expose the killer.

    I noticed that, although all the psychics seemed to pick up very specific info like Angela's name and other things, when it came to finding physical evidence (the knife, very specific map drawn by Kevin and metal detector used) frustratingly, as was the case with another episode where a psychic led investigators and was adamant that a body would be found, nothing was in either case.

    I've only seen a few episodes of Sensing Murder, but am guessing that this pattern of being specific about stuff that might have been gleaned from things that are already known by research, the "unknowns", like finding a knife or a body, will be frustratingly unsolved. Makes you wonder about how psychic these people are.

    Well, of course the answer is that these morons are not psychic at all. Like parents talking to their young kids about Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, they're telling lies to people gullible enough to believe them. And contrary to what you think happened in the show, the reality is that none of the psychics were able to name Angela. No psychic is ever able to even reveal a murdered person's first name, let alone their full name, or their occupation, address etc, and certainly never the name of their murderer or the location of evidence, even though they claim to be communicating with them. As you say, they can only ever appear to hint about things that are already well known, never about things that are unknown. That's why worldwide, no psychic has ever solved a murder case. Or even the case of the missing car keys.

    That's what TV is still about, as people in the production of ANY program will tell you.

    Your comment is a little vague, but would I be right in thinking that you're suggesting that TV programs like 'Sensing Murder' are made to entertain rather than inform, and thus will always be short on the truth? By which I mean the production team will lie and cheat and falsify to cater for the gullible viewers that childishly believe the mediums are really talking to dead people. Depressingly there are millions of people in the world that can't grasp that they are being lied to, and they continue to hand over vast sums to these fraudsters, just to be reassured that their dead granny still loves them, even though granny can't remember her name or theirs.

    It's interesting to note that last week (Oct 25, 2019) the police arrested and charged a 45-year-old man and 47-year-old woman with Angela Blackmoore's unsolved murder in 1995. Blackmoore was 21 at the time of her death, and the accused would have been around 21 and 23 respectively. Apparently this breakthrough came about due to the police offering a $100,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction. It's depressing that some people will only do the right thing when you bribe them with lots of money.

    Assuming of course the police have arrested the real guilty party, and new information is forthcoming about the crime, it will be interesting to compare the facts with the conflicting stories the silly mediums bandied about on 'Sensing Murder'. I predict that the lying scumbags won't be held accountable for the bullshit they got paid for. And I wonder why Angela Blackmoore's ghost didn't give any of the three mediums advance warning of this new development in the case? Wouldn't it have been impressive if the mediums had revealed to the public that the police were about to arrest her murderers, before they told us, rather than the mediums just hearing about it in the news like the rest of us folk that don't have magic powers?
