R. of Ramat Gan, who defines herself as "spiritual communicator", called the police on Friday claiming that she knew where the body of 4-year old Rose Pizem had been buried by her grandfather, the police's main suspect in the case of the girl's disappearance.
In her appeal to the authorities the communicator said she had seen a vision of Rose being murdered and buried. "I communicate using photos. When I saw the pictures of Rose Pizem, her mother, Marie, and the Yarkon River, I touched them and then everything was revealed to me," she said.

R. told police, "In the vision I see Marie and Ron arrive at the beach, where they fight. During the fight he hits Marie and Rose. Rose took a heavy blow and fainted. Then Ron dragged her from the sand, which retained signs of the dragging of her feet. He took her to a hill between a restaurant and a cliff, where he buried her alive."
After R. had her vision she checked pictures of beaches online until she came across the one she had "seen", Argeman Beach in Netanya. According to R, she even recognized the restaurant.
The 33-year old communicator claimed she was not familiar with Netanya's shoreline, and did not know of the beach with the restaurant before the vision. She also denied knowledge of the beach's close proximity to the location in which Rose's grandfather, Ronny Ron, claims to have attacked her.
A police statement said in response that all information relevant to the case is being investigated. "Since publication of Rose's disappearance we have received around 600 calls. Some of them were by citizens offering to help with the search, others provided information we already had," said police spokesman, Chief Superintendant Shlomi Sagi.
"Among the callers were also a number of various communicators. We are investigating all information. One communicator claimed Rose was in the Banias River, so we checked there as well."
