Theresa Caputo helped a young woman deal with the loss of her father during the 9/11 tragedies in New York on the latest "Long Island Medium" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on TLC). Theresa told the young woman that she kept seeing the word "MISSING" on a newspaper, leading the client to make the connection to her father.
When Theresa suggested that he'd left behind a piece of himself for his wife and daughter, the client realized she was referring to his wedding ring. On a fluke, he'd left his wedding ring behind on September 11, 2001, and opted not to go back for it. So when they learned that he was gone, there was indeed a very intimate piece of himself left behind.
"I don’t tell anybody that story," the woman said in incredulous shock. It is her belief and conviction that exemplifies why the show works, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It doesn't matter if viewers believe in Theresa. The power power of the show lies in that her clients do.
New episodes of "Long Island Medium" continue on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
