Psychics on Iowa State Payroll?

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The Iowa Department of Public Safety wants to make it clear: it doesn't pay psychics to help solve cases.

Spokesman Rob Hansen said Thursday that Commissioner Brian London did ask investigators whether they'd tracked down any tips from psychics related to the kidnapping and slaying of two cousins.

Hansen said London made the inquiry in December, the day the bodies of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins were found in a wooded area in northeast Iowa. Since then, he says London's faced questions at one meeting about whether the department pays for psychics and "corrected the record" that it does not.

Hansen said investigators should follow every lead, including those from psychics, particularly when other leads dry up. But he says the department isn't using psychics "as some sort of philosophy."
