Cutting edge investigative technique

Peel Police try out a little of that "old black magic"...
One of three men accused in a gang-related slaying led an undercover police officer posing as a black magic practitioner to the murder scene, court heard yesterday.

Once there, Peel police Const. Andrew Cooper, a.k.a. Leon the Obeah Man, broke an egg that spilled blood to show off his powers.
I wonder if I could nominate Constable Cooper for a Juno Award... he sounds way more talented than most of the pretenders you usually see on the CBC.
Cooper pretended to be an Obeah Man -- a practitioner of witchcraft and voodoo in Caribbean culture -- to get Collette Robinson and her son Evol to reveal their knowledge of the Oct. 9, 2004 slaying of Youhan Oraha, 22.

Robinson, 22, Ruben Pinnock, 24, and Jahmar Welsh, 24, have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of Oraha, who was shot 14 times, mostly in his back.
Maybe they should have stuck with a curse.
