Families of Victims of Violent Crimes come in all sizes shapes colors and cultures. Little Children being the victims of kidnap murder and other heinous acts is one of the most darkest deeds.  Children are to be loved protected and have the right to live a safe and happy life. 

Elaina Proffitt 

Consulting for Law Enforcement since 1984  (currently retired) 
Principal's of Investigation  
"Psychics as a Forensic Tool"
"Profiling Methodology "
Available for Seminars 

In 1984 was trained by respected homicide investigator , Rod Englert Multnomah County Sheriff’s Department to become a psychic detective and forensic tool in the world of murder. 

Discovering she had an uncanny ability to profile a suspect and to work crime scenes keeping a low profile, confidentiality and strong ethics of never compromising a case there would come a time when she would find the victims’ families being referred to her to give them comfort. 

To this day she works with mothers of violent loss. Speaking to various agencies throughout the years; how to use psychics as a forensic tool, psychic fraud and more. Elaina is a strong supporter of Law Enforcement seeing first hand since 1984 what they endure daily, walking into the line-of-fire each day. The unspeakable horror they see. 

They have become extended family to this day “They are a closed club and it is an honor for me to be welcomed into not only consulting for them but to be part of their families” She also has counseled the wives of fallen officers. All cases in the book have been cleared before included in this fascinating book. Throughout the years, she had a 100% accuracy when a police officer would be in the line-of-fire and all lived.

When asked how can I do this dangerous horrific type of work, my heart replies swiftly…How could I not?”

Congratulations -Tori and baby Dean are so proud of You... 


Daynas Herroz's  22 year old daughter Tori Vienneau and Tori's son Dean, were found strangled inside their Southcrest apartment

 Tori and Dean 7/23/06 (3 days before the murders) and the last photo ever taken of them.

In July 2006,  Baby Dean was found in his crib with a cord on the same day that he turned ten months old.

"You wake up every morning and know that your family has been murdered," Herroz said.

After 18 months San Diego Police homicide detectives finally had enough evidence to arrest Vienneau's ex-boyfriend and father of her son, Bonita resident Dennis Potts.

Prosecutors said Potts killed Vienneau and son because he didn't want to pay child support.  He even used a friend's DNA to fake a paternity test.

"He thought he could get away with this, and he ruined his own life," Herroz said.

Herroz agreed to participate in a special "Dateline" on the crime because she wants to raise awareness about domestic violence.

Potts is now serving two life sentences in prison and Herroz said the judge granted her an unusual request.

In his prison cell, there is a large picture of the bodies of Vienneau and Dean in their casket on the day they were buried together.

"I want him to live with it everyday,"Dayna said.  "It's laminated, so he can't cut it up, he can't draw on it."

Grieving for a loved one lost to violence is a deep pain that brings sudden shock and also then having the killer in the shadows of their lives for life.

Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glint on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,

I am the swift uplifting rush,

Of quiet birds in circling flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,

I am not there, I did not die.
