Update on Cori Desmond

Just wanted everyone to know that the young woman Cori Desmond who was murdered back at the start of this year has been tirelessly working on the other side to catch her killer. It may sound strange, but she is a very strong spirit and I am convinced she made it her mission to make sure her killer was caught.

A friend of mine who works at a news outlet in the Inland Empire sent me the press release. They have arrested the man suspected of murdering her. Here is the release:

DATE/TIME: February 16, 2009 / 2:24 p.m. UPDATE October 9, 2009

INCIDENT: Murder Investigation

LOCATION: Highway 330 near mile marker 38, lower Running Springs

SUSPECT: Tony Lopez Perez, 35 (D.O.B:08/11/74), Redondo Beach

VICTIM(S): Cori Daye Desmond, 28 years of age (D.O.B:03/18/80), resident of Torrance



Cori Daye Desmond was last seen in the early morning hours of February 16, 2009 near Artesia Bl. and Slauson (Bogey’s Bar) in Redondo Beach.  Cori’s body was discovered in the afternoon of February 16th in a remote area of the San Bernardino mountains.

Since then, Sheriff’s Homicide Investigators have interviewed hundreds of people and served several search warrants, including 50 tips from anonymous sources through WeTip.  One of the anonymous sources gave Investigators the name of Tony Lopez Perez.  The information was vague and then the caller contacted the Investigators again and provided additional information.  Investigators identified Perez’s vehicle and determined that he sold his Dodge Durango and purchased a new vehicle.  They located the Dodge Durango and obtained a search warrant to look for any possible evidence.  Physical evidence was recovered and processed at the Sheriff’s Scientific Investigation Division.

On Thursday, October 8, 2009 Investigators contacted Perez at his home.  Perez agreed to meet with Investigators at Sheriff’s Headquarters that morning.  Perez was interviewed and at the conclusion of the interview he was arrested and booked at Central Detention Center for Murder.  He is being held without bail.

Investigators believe that this case would have likely remained unsolved if not for the assistance from the media and the public.


Case Summary:

On February 16, 2009, at about 2:24 p.m., the reporting party pulled into a turn out located on the west side of Highway 330 near mile marker 38.  The turn out is about the 5000’ elevation and is considered to be the lower area of Running Springs.  The reporting party looked over a mound of dirt and saw what he believed to be a human foot protruding from a bag.

The reporting party contacted a Cal Trans employee and a California Highway Patrol Officer who was in the area checking vehicles for snow chains.  The CHP Officer verified the remains were in fact human and contacted the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Twin Peaks Station.

The Homicide Detail was requested by the Twin Peaks Station to assist in the investigation.   The body was determined to be a female and was transported to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Coroner Division.  Positive identification has been made, although the next of kin has not been contacted at this time.  An Autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

The victim has been identified as Cori Daye Desmond, 28 years of age a resident of Torrance.  The victim’s vehicle a 1998 Jeep Wrangler Ca. license 4AQM779 was located in Redondo Beach.

There are currently no suspects in custody and investigators are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the person or persons responsible for Desmond’s death.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Sergeant Tony De Cecio or Detective Trevis Newport at 909-387-3589.  Those wishing to remain anonymous may contact We Tip at 1-800-78- CRIME (27463).

I just want to extend my thanks to the police for their great work and my sympathy to the Desmond family. I personally feel a huge burden off my shoulders. I am so happy they have made an arrest.

Best wishes to all you kind people,

Answering Readers…

Hey everyone,

I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging as much as I should. Marlene had a question about a case and I want to answer that but I don’t have time to look into it right now but will tomorrow.

I wanted to say that Cori Desmond’s killer has still not been found. And as I said to police and her family, I felt it was a stranger, a serial rapist/killer who was responsible. There have now been another 2 attempts to kidnap women from the area where Cori was taken. One of the victims I believe had a run in with Cori’s killer. From the composite police sketch the guy looked almost exactly how I pictured him. I feel her killer has a long criminal history. I am getting worried that the killer knows the system well enough to use it against the police. That’s all I’m going to say about this for  now. But again if you live in the area of Redondo/Hermosa Beach don’t take anything for granted. If you have a strange encounter with a stocky middle aged guy with blondish brown hair, report it. Even if it seems stupid to do so. Trust your instincts. I have a feeling this guy wanders a lot, perhaps he might live in his car or have been homeless off and on. He also has the ability to blend in, almost become invisible. He’s a serious predator and the police really need to start putting Cori’s case together with some other things they are working on, and they will find patterns. I have  the feeling they don’t want to think of this as a serial situation because it makes things a lot more complicated, will cost more, take more resources and put a lot of public pressure on them to catch the guy. 

Also anyone who was friends with Cori or knew Cori, you may have seen this guy around the bar she worked at or had some cursory exchange with him. Rack your brains. He’s not the kind of guy who any of you would be friends with and didn’t know Cori other than seeing her at work. I think the guy left the area for awhile but I feel he’s back near the beach and has been for awhile now. So keep an eye out.

Best wishes to all you good people out there,


P.S. I know Cori’s situation was different in terms of her death then most of this man’s victims. He probably started as a serial rapist. But I don’t think he had the chance to do that to Cori. This maybe one of the reasons the police are having trouble figuring out motive. I’d be happy to try and help them if they want to contact me.

It’s my feeling that the group of Hispanic guys in the white van are not related to the Cori Desmond case but the other dude is.

Cori Desmond

It’s very interesting that so many people are picking things up about her and the case and seem to feel an intense need to help in this way. I have had postings about other missing people on occasion, but the response to Cori has been really amazing.

I want to thank all of you out there for trying to help and for being open to the possibility of touching her spirit. I’m trying not to read all of it or rather take it in, as I want to be clear in case my services are needed by her family.

Keep her in your thoughts and prayers and visualize her killer being caught. You would be surprised how much visualization can help.

Questions and comments from readers and also some other stuff as you will see! First comes from Juno:


Hi Denise-

Just a suggestion — are there any L.A.-based papers that would run a regular column on info like this, concerning the Obama presidency and the new economy? Sending then a sample like this as a pitch would work; it would be great to reach a wider audience and to help others out there, and I think people are freaked out enough now that they are either going to shut down further or open up to new ways of looking at info.

Hi Juno,

Interestingly I’m talking to a much bigger local based website about doing this sort of political astrology for them instead of a regular old astrology column. You must be psychic!

And from Sparker:


Hi Denise,
The other night I saw four, what I believe, are UFO’s over the city of LS Vegas the other night. Apparently, there is a huge surge in these blatant sightings. Whatever they are they apparently want to be seen.
I have also seen a lot of chem trails over Las Vegas the last few days. I saw them a lot in the Fall when I was in Central PA. It’s amazing to me that these things in the sky are going completely unnoticed by people.
Do you have any insight into why these things are taking place? I suspect the chem trails have something to do with reflecting light in the hopes of preventing global warming.

Hi Sparker,

I’ve  been doing a lot of research about this topic because I’m writing a piece about it. There have been a lot, A LOT, of mass UFO sightings in the past few years. And interestingly there have been a lot of UFO incursions at major commercial airports. These crafts have been spotted by airport staff, pilots and mechanics.

There have been a record number of air disasters lately which reminded me of one readers’ questions about the specific airline Quantas nearly getting hit a few times last year. I have started wondering about all the ariel phenomena it’s getting a bit nutty. I saw some footage of an airplane almost being hit by a UFO but according to the videographer the object could not be seen with the naked eye, making me wonder if perhaps there is something weird going on with all the recent crashes, especially since there has been such an increase in UFO sightings.

You should report what you saw to the local chapter of MUFON so they can investigate. Your sighting information will help them figure out how big, where, what time, and what the span of the object was.

There is definitely something going on. I have several theories about why there seems to have been so much contact from alien beings since our recorded history and why it escalates at different points. It seems to rise during major historical turning points, before WWI, at the turn of the 19th century right before the invention of the aircraft, during and before WWII and then in 1950s during the height of the cold war scare and again during the 1980s onward.

I do think you are right about global warming being a key. I believe the escalation is because we are dangerously perched on extinction. You could be right about the chem trails being some sort of way to shift the warming trend but I don’t know just yet. Maybe now the UFO occupants not only don’t care if we notice them, but are too busy trying to gather what they can before things dramatically shift or perhaps some are also invested in helping us avoid this, sort of like us going into the arctic and trying to save the animals there. A part of me wonders if we aren’t some crazy science experiment where our world is some kind of zoo and we are being watched by a bunch of different types of beings to see what happens. Let’s hope not. That seems very cold and creepy. 

All I know is there have been way too many credible witnesses and far too much evidence to dismiss the phenomena. I wish more people in the conventional sciences would investigate these sightings. I think they do science a great disservice by being closed minded and arrogant. Whatever is actually happening is really not important, what is important is that so many people of seen things and if it is a mass delusion (which I truly don’t believe it is) than isn’t this worth a scientific study in and of itself?

And another offer to cut my rates down during this uncertain time.

There are a lot of people going through scary things, people who need a little perspective and I don’t want my services to be for just rich people. So the Yule Tide offer is back for those who need it and for those who are really in a desperate place, but have virtually no money, then I can work something out, perhaps answering a few questions via e-mail for a minimal amount of money. I have had a lot of people needing help and many of them don’t have the means to pay my fees which is understandable in this economy. 

For those of you who don’t remember the Yule Tide rates they were: 50 for 15/20 minutes and 100 for 30/35 minutes and 150 for 45/50 minutes and so forth. If money is tight go for the 15/20 and prioritize what you really need to know and we can focus on that. Then in a few months if another area of your life is in need of help, we can work on just that in another short reading.

And lastly I’m asking a favor from the army of psychics who read this blog. Please visualize the capture of Cori Desmond’s murderer. You don’t have to have an exact picture just imagine the words Cori Desmond’s killer and the words Imprisoned, Captured, Found, anything of that nature next to it, or on it, whatever. However you want to do it. But please help, this is a very good hearted family who is really suffering.

Many blessings to all of you good people,

The Economic Stimulus Plan & Cori Desmond

First I want to say that I am so sorry for the loss of Cori. I feel very badly for all of her family and friends and want to let them know I have given the police all the information I received. I also talked to some of Cori’s friends which confirmed some of what I had told the police and had e-mail correspondence with her father whom I will be more than happy to help if he wants me to.  I’ve gotten a flood of e-mails from her friends. She was obviously a very powerful presence and touched many people’s lives. I’m sorry if you have e-mailed me and I haven’t gotten back to you. I haven’t had a lot of time recently. 

Now onto the Stimulus Package which upon further reflection and after seeing the Governor of Louisiana on Meet the Press tonight, brought to light one of the aspects in the Stimulus Package chart. That is the Uranus Saturn opposition which is the ideological tug between the conservative status quo way we have been dealing with the economy since Reagan’s “Trickle Down Economics” and “no new taxes,” mantra. Both of which were falacies even then as wealth never ended up trickling down and we went into a recession in the early 90s because of the overspending hole Reagan put us in, as it turned out Reagan did also raise taxes. He actually invented or re-applied new ones like the Capital Gains tax so when you sold your home that you had already paid taxes for every year, not to mention the income tax you had to pay before you bought the home, but you were then taxed on any profit you may have made on your home. The only way to avoid this was by buying a home of equal or greater value.

So all those people who were middle class wanting to scale down, use their equity to retire on, screw them! They had to pay this extra ridiculous double tax. Again, this was a slimy way to tax the middle class and allow the wealthy to weasel out of their fair share.

This broken ideology is the cornerstone of the Republican party. Yet until Bush “broke the world,” as Seth Meyers joked on Saturday Night Live a couple weeks back, they were getting away with the bait and switch, doing what they accused the Democrats of doing (which they actually weren’t) like creating huge deficit spending (remember that surplus at the end of the Clinton era, seems like a thousand years ago now), they were selling their party as fiscally conservative — read help the wealthy save their money so they can buy more yachts while the schizophrenic guy gets dumped onto the streets from a half-way house because, damn it, he should “pull himself up by his own bootstraps,” theory.

They went after unions under the guise of their outdated uselessness and once they were destroyed the jobs with health care benefits and 401Ks and all those extra perks began slipping away. Until they were finally shipped overseas. And interestingly the border from Mexico became very porous while Reagan was in office. One needs desperate people to work for nothing if your desire is to exploit them.

I always said they were trying to turn this country into a third world nation, a country of very rich and very poor, nothing in-between. But even I couldn’t entirely believe it. It seemed too disgusting, greedy, evil and vile to really be true. Surely, there was something I was missing, perhaps a different ideology about economics that I didn’t get. Not that old timey way of doing things like indentured servitude and slavery, and people working for nothing so that their bosses could live like kings. No. Who would want to walk down a street and see people starving, who could do that and feel nothing? Oh, yeah, I think we had that answer, the people who were in charge the last 8 years. And the people who supported them, often not knowing what they were really supporting, thinking they were for “family values” and gun rights and the right to life and even Christianity. When in reality these people were really for greed, selfishness, and whoever has the most stuff wins. Not very Christian, not very “family values,” to let your grand kids pay for your spending sprees and live in a contaminated world so you could make a few extra bucks off that oil well.

Now the new Republican face is supposedly Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana and he’s saying he won’t take the Stimulus Package money to help the people of his state, most of whom live in poverty, many still are not settled due to Katrina, because of “ideological” discrepancies with the plan. Meaning he wants more, “read my lips, NO NEW TAXES,” for the rich and is willing to commit political Harri Kari to carry the broken down smoldering torch of Reaganomics. Is he kidding? What are these idiotic Republicans thinking? Really? Really? I mean REALLY?

We are about to plunge headlong into a world wide depression because of their ideology. America voted them out of power in every branch of the government and they actually have the gall to criticize this bill. Really? Seriously, they actually tried to get in the way of it. And this Bobby Jindal is going to turn down relief for the starving people of Louisiana because it’s going to make the deficit worse? That’s his supposed excuse. Where was he when we invaded Iraq with now hundreds of thousands of dead innocent Iraqi people, thousands of our soldiers and a trillion, bazillion majillion dollar deficit from what was a bungled mess and total violation of the Geneva convention. 

So back to the astrology of this. This idiotic commitment to a failed economic ideology that the Republicans are still in love with will end up pushing this stimulus package into a more and more radical stance. As things worsen, the reaction will have to be more extreme, more radical and dare I say it, more about spreading the wealth. I know these guys hate that idea. I mean only they deserve to be wealthy. But lets face it, if they are the only ones with money, then its kind of hard to have an economy.

The best metaphor I heard about what has happened is this: Imagine you are playing a poker game and one guy keeps winning and winning until he’s taken all the money from all the players. Well, the game’s over. That’s a major ideological hole in Trickle Down economics.

And what happens when the rich just get richer? They literally clog the economic colon of the country. They can’t possibly move around enough money to sustain everyone. When the wealth is spread around, and there are a lot of middle class people spending money, we actually have more jobs, more productivity, more to go around. This was the basic theory behind Clinton’s economic ideology  and it worked very well. Actually, incredibly well.

So if anyone implies spreading the wealth around is a bad thing tell them to go back in their time machine to the 1950s when McCarthy and the Red scare was happening, and leave the rest of us alone — those of us who live in the 21st century and know that some of the most productive and wealthiest nations in the world are actually social democracies, like Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

Countries where they have the highest standard of living and where the people are statistically proven to be the most content of anywhere in the world. Lands where no one starves on the street, the mentally ill are treated, and you not only have free health care, but if you apply yourself academically you can get a free higher education.

Now those don’t sound like such bad ideas to me.  

A land where both parents get something like six months paid maternity/paternity leave. Where the kids are brought to work, and put in company daycare where the parents work. You know all those family values we like to talk about, but don’t actually like to do anything about.

It actually sounds surprisingly evolved and civilized. Hope we can drop that weird anti-pinko, left over cold war brainwashing that makes it impossible for us to see things clearly.

Best wishes and many blessings,

First Hopeandaplan:


I wanted to thank you for creating the dream journal. For many years I have had hazy but sometimes precognitive dreams and was always frustrated that I couldnt share them with people whom they might actually impact. Most of the time I didnt believe they were precognitive… I had a lot of dreams about Australia in late January and felt their surge in shark attacks further signalled trouble there. I am sorry the dreams werent more definitive. Also, about a week ago I got a lot of flashes about Suge Knight. I dont even listen to rap??? I guess he was in a brawl earlier this week. I didnt post about Suge because I am so out of the loop I thought he had passed away. I’m grateful you’ve generously encouraged us to believe enough in our intuitions to share them here because as a community we’re all picking up on one another’s stuff. I also enjoy your welcoming other writer’s thougths about ethics. Just of a fan of all the humanity expressed here on your blog!

Hi Hopeandaplan,

I’m so glad you are making use of the dream journal and I really hope people continue to use it and exchange information and patterns. This is a really interesting experiment in my opinion and already I’ve seen odd coincidences and patterns which I’m sure you have, too. I think this sort of thing could be key to pointing out major events that are going to manifest out of the Collective Unconscious, hopefully, we will each receive some piece of vital information and be able to stop potential terrorist attacks or other major disasters in the future (if this sort of research continues and evolves.)

If nothing else it can only help us better understand how the unconscious works and what dream symbolism means for each of us. I do wonder if before major events that touch many people, if we won’t see some common themes. I’m hopeful that we will.

Thanks so much for participating in this and I hope more people take advantage of this opportunity to share their souls and inner most psyche’s with others of like mind.

And from Nic and Noe:


cori was my friends sister. what you’ve heard on the news is all anybody knows, if that helps.


Very sad… she use to work at my bf’s work. I’m in shock, there has been a lot more crime in the beach communities lately, has me a bit worried. I feel awful that this young girls life was taken.

I can’t tell you how heartbreaking this story is, as are the stories of all people who undergo the disgusting, vile, evil monstrous behavior of that these anti-social personality disorder types propagate onto others.

But this story in particular really hit me hard and her father’s pain was palpable.

I am wishing all of her family, friends and loved one much support, kindness and love throughout this incredibly tragic and horrifying situation. I’m sure medical science will discover (at some future time) that the one thing all murders have in common is some serious frontal lobe damage or crazy hard wiring. One can try to chalk it up to bad childhoods, but let’s face it, a lot of people have horrible childhoods and don’t do things like this. There is something wrong with their brains and I perhaps their very souls.

I will answer these questions tomorrow at some point, once I run the charts and look at them.

Best wishes and many blessings to all the kind and good hearted people out there reading this blog,

Dear Denise,

On February 17, 2009 Obama sign the stimulus package at 1:34 Mountain Time in Denver, Colorado as seen on CNN. Now, what do you perceive about the stimulus package? Thanks!

I got this information from the website,http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PoliticalAstrology/message/103237. Note: one can only read entries if one provides their password and name.



Dear Denise, Thanks so much for your efforts here! There’s so much panic out there now – do you see major US banks like Bank Of America (BAC) and Citigroup (C) being nationalized by the government? Also, do you see a recovery of American International Group, Inc. (AIG)? THANK YOU SO MUCH! Peace and blessings, Carl

Cori Desmond

Recently a young woman from Redondo Beach was murdered here in Southern California, her body was found about 100 miles away in the mountains. That was a small miracle as she could have ended up being one of those people who just disappear, something I believe her murderer counted on.

Her name was Cori Desmond and her father’s appeal was heart wrenching. Having a daughter myself and knowing the intense grief and anger he must be feeling overwhelmed by. I did have some strong feelings when the first part of the story was reported and nothing was disclosed about the gender or situation. And then again when more information came out today about the case.

The second bit of information confirmed what I picked up about the situation from the first report. Again when the next bit of info came out I had a picture of the murderer and some feelings about where he was originally from, how he got her into his car and the cause of her death.

I don’t want to give out any details (I have reported those to the police) but since I’m just going off of stuff from TV, it may not be as accurate as I would be if I was more directly in contact with either the family or with the detectives. I do want to put it out there to her family and the police that I would be more than happy to help them in any way possible for free. I have a feeling they don’t have much of anything to go on but Cori’s spirit is strong and I feel she is very angry and wants very much for this man to be caught, not just for her own reasons. I can be e-mailed at: happypeopleusa@aol.com

Best wishes and many blessings,

Cori Desmond
