Pillar of Fire Deemed Supernatural by the FBI
John Collins3/7/2012 7:39:00 PMGeorge J. Lacy, who Branham claimed to be the "head of the FBI fingerprint and documents for the United States Government" was proof by science (according to Branham) that he had a supernatural halo. The actual report from Mr. Lacy simply stated that:
Based upon the above described examination and study I am of the definite opinion that the negative submitted for examination, was not retouched nor was it a composite or double exposed negative.
Further, I am of the definite opinion that the light streak appearing above the head in a halo position was caused by the light striking the negative.
George J. Lacy, Report and Opinion
George J. Lacy was never the "Head of the FBI Fingerprint and Documents" division, if such a position even existed, and he never claimed the photograph to be supernatural according to written statements.
He held a private consulting firm that specialized in document investigation in Houston, TX, and accepted document investigation projects for paid service.
During Mr. Lacy's early work in law enforcement he arrested Charles Ponzi, the namesake of the Ponzi Scheme. He began his career in forensic science as a general criminalist and ballistics expert. As a ballistics expert, he worked on the Bonnie and Clyde case. He later specialized in questioned document examination. He was responsible for establishing the Houston Police Crime Laboratory. Mr. Lacy maintained a private practice in Houston, Texas for many years.
George Lacy was the author of number of articles and professional papers, such as "Handwriting and Forgery Under Hypnosis," published in the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology and "Magnification versus Enlargement," published in the Canadian Society of Forensic Science Journal. Mr. Lacy passed away in 1962.
