Opal Jo Jennings
Six-year-old Opal Jo Jennings was the victim of a terrible crime in 1999 when she was abducted outside of her grandparents’ home in Saginaw, Texas. For four years, Opal Jo’s remains were left unfound, but well-known psychic Sylvia Browne remained optimistic, especially during a reading she performed for Jennings’ grandmother shortly after the abduction. “She’s not dead”, Browne told Jenning’s grandmother on an episode of Montel, claiming that the young girl had been placed into slavery. Whatever consolation Browne’s reading gave Jennings’ family dissipated when, just months after the disappearance, child molester Richard Lee Franks was charged with the kidnapping. Opal Jo’s remains were found in 2003, with medical examiners stating she had died within hours of Franks abducting her.
