A Hand in Crime


In the late 70s I often appeared on UK television, in one instance on a program called Tomorrow’s World a short ten-minute segment featured me analyzing police hand and fingerprints. I said then that one day this would be an accepted process where palmists
would help police with crimes.

In the UK, Graphologists testimonies are regularly used in courts up and down the country
for analyzing writings and signatures, but the use of palmists for finger and handprints is
only used as back up as palmistry is not seen as evidential. Becoming a regular figure on TV gave me quite a following among the public but a certain amount of jealousy among a few novice palmists.

I received an invite to visit a London police station where they said they wanted to put me to the test. But what I saw on my arrival was not what I expected. A senior policeman had his trouser legs rolled up, and was dancing about flicking me with a wet washing up brush, saying read your tea leaves ducky and “cross my palm with silver” to loud guffaws of laughter from other policemen.

However, although rather embarrassed. I took the challenge to see if i could tell anything
from the hand print they passed to me. First thing to notice is this is a pick-pockets hand,
children are taught every day to pull the first two fingers to lengthen them and get them
the same size,

London Metro Police Department palm print(1) This then can act like a pair of scissors into some one’s pocket as pushing in the whole hand may alert the person. Second is the hand itself will be squeezed and pressured every day to slim the palm. In my talks to the various palmistry societies in the 70s, anything unusual I named a “Cuckoo Marking” as it should not be there, and the shape of the hand and fingers here are unnatural.

(2) The headline is forked, this can show a split personality, someone dual in nature often seen with career criminals, although one branch does end in a square,

(3) The most positive palmar marking as it shows protection as it were, safe in a box. From the bone category we can guess the blood type – and this is probably Group O, there are 4 types of bone structure, this hand is a sub-division known as Mediterranean or Ibero-insular, found in Spain and France but is rare in eastern and northwestern Europe, but is said to be Albanian and Romanian origin. The face and skull give the most bone info on nationality, but hands can also give some info.

The Police Gazette claimed that criminal gangs from these areas are coming to the UK to rob and steal, the Roma Gypsy word for hand is “mandi” they claim that as Christ was about to be crucified a Roma gypsy stole the iron nails, and ever since God has given them permission to steal.

(4) The heart line is ragged and broken and the marks above known as the Girdle of Venus
which give a sensual moody and changeable emotional nature.

(5) Small squares just inside the Lifeline show some kind of imprisonment either a hospital
prison or similar, and from here a small travel line journeys down. The square is at age 28 – 30 so after this we can assume they came to the UK to continue their craft. The many lined hand is known as a full hand, these folk are always on edge suffer anxiety and stomach problems, leading this kind of life is stress producing, and this shows both in the cardio-vascular sector and the digestive network, I estimated that this would require hospitalization in the near future.

The palmar area concerning the lungs shows a respiratory disease which has taken hold over a long period of time, this would give them a kind of tubercular-sounding cough. The police seemed stunned and went very quiet.
