A man who helped locate missing Nicola Bulley’s body is a self-described ‘spiritual medium, psychic and tarot reader’.
Jason Dean Rothwell found the mum’s body a mile from a river bench where her phone was found.
Mr Rothwell and a friend were seen alongside the River Wyre at the weekend, appearing to assist police with the location and recovery of a body – now confirmed as the missing 45-year-old mum.
Along with a friend, Mr Rothwell tonight said they “assisted police”, however stressed he was not asked by Lancashire police or Nicola’s family to offer his “spiritualists or medium” services.
In a statement posted to Facebook, he writes: “Yes it is myself in the images in the media currently circulating relating to the case of Nicola Bulley and yes yesterday morning it was myself and a friend who reported and assisted the police in the recovery of a body from the river Wyre.
“Such as it is it would be inappropriate of me to discuss in any further detail anything we may know about that body at this time, considering a formal identification of that body has yet to be confirmed.
“I would also like to just say a huge thank you to Lancashire police for their help, support and the open mindedness with which they dealt with us, following our call, spiritualists or mediums are obviously not something the police come across every day and I appreciate the respect given to us both.
