Is it true that Geraldine Edwards Robert Palmers partner was the County Psychic working with the San Diego Police Dept in the nineties?
Yes she was. According to Dennis Mallins of the S.D.P.D., Geraldine Edwards was the lead County Psychic for the County of San Diego for a three year time period. In her capacity as the County Psychic, she was taken to crime scenes, conducted investigations and was given the title of Special Investigator. She was paired with a police detective who was assigned as her partner named James Sundvold for safety reasons. The position carried a substanstial amount of risk as witnesses that sometimes were recalcitant to remember or give testimony would provide information to Edwards which would then be used in investigations. Those who were arrested in part because of these testimonies took umbrage with Edwards. The job was not for the faint of heart, but as Mallins said "Geraldine was tough and she could handle it." The S.D.P.D. and other major cities stopped using County Psychics when George P. Bush made it illegal for their input to be used in ongoing investigations. Prior to that they were extremely useful in certain types of police investigations. In the early nineties, Geraldine Edwards had a five minute segment on a local news station called "The Psychic's Corner" where she warned consumers about scams that were attached to Psychic, Metaphysical or Paranormal matters. There has been more than one unscrupulous practictioner of these disiplines who has sought to con or hustle potential victims for financial gain to themselves. She also advised interested individuals on how to reasonably and safely use these services. Her show was considered a community service and she was introduced as the County Psychic of San Diego County.

Is it true that geraldine Edwards the late Robert palmers girlfriend and the woman almost famous was written about helped mix the sound on the winter bros Frankenstein live?
According to Rodney Bingenheimer's interview with Geraldine Edwards which took place in 1975, that is true. Geraldine Edwards met the legendary Shelley Yakus, who is hands dow…n the must famous record producer in the world, and who owned the Record Plant at the time, in 1974, backstage at the San Diego Sports Arena. She was seventeen years old at the time. Shelley Yakus took a shine to her, and told her that he was going to be recording "Frankenstein Live" that night for the Winters Brothers and that Rick Derringer was going to be onstage helping them out. He asked her if she would like to help him in doing this, and she said yes. What she actually did on the recording was monitor Danny Hartman's base levels and label the tape boxes, but she enjoyed the experience, saying that she now had a "new respect for sound men who worked at live performances. Mixing a live show requires serious skill and talent." Geraldine and Shelley Yakus, who was John Lennon's sound producer and worked with a who's who of superstars, remained friends. Geraldine Edwards was given credit on the first thousand copies of Frankenstien Live released in 1975, listed as a "production assistant" as a gift from Shelley Yakus.
The website you are referring to is not the official website of Robert Palmer, in other words it is not mandated by his family or friends. The Palmer family took down their of…ficial website in 2006. The reason that Geraldine Edwards name does not appear as Robert Palmer's girlfriend is that she has not given the site permission to use her name or to post any pictures of her. She has deferred to the Palmer family in this matter, in addition to which the woman has moved on with her life and is now happily married and has been so for years. The only member of the Palmer family who participated on this site in any way was Robert Palmer's brother, Mark Palmer, and he only did so in a peripheral way, by leaving a commerative blog on the site remembering his brother. Beyond that he does not endorse the site. By all accounts Geraldine Edwards is a very private person and does not court publicity for herself. She would prefer not to be listed on any site about Robert Palmer not approved of by the Palmer family. She was also the woman Almost Famous was written about and turned down offers to have a website created for her. She prefers to remain annonymous.

Both felt the Estate should go to Palmer's five children and UNICEF, and paid a visit to Palmer's Estate Attorney Paul Bernard at his offices in Paris, France. At that time the final Will was enacted and lodged with the Paris Probate Court as is procedure. Although the Will was challenged in 2004 it turned out to be airtight. The Will stood as lastly written in July of 2003. A case was brought against the French Probate Court via the Hague Convention in 2007 by Mick Carter, Robert Palmer's manager and Mary Ambrose questioning the legality of the assignment of James Palmer as Trustee of the Estate and questioning the actions of the French Probate Court citing Conflict of Interest. If the two had prevailed they would have been able to file a third lawsuit against the Estate, however, the matter was dismissed by the Hague Convention, and the matter was finally laid to rest.

There have been many exceptional marksman at the San Diego Police Department throughout the years. There have however been SDPD Officers who have excelled to the highest level… of weapons skills. In 1984 the officer who won the best marksmanship award was Police Officer Craig Goodwin who shot a perfect score, and, left his signature on his target with all bullet holes in the center ring cutting out a US Quarter size hole. That is exceptional shooting in any ones book.
