NYPD occult specialist inspires TV movie

A New York police officer specializing in occult cases for most of his 22-year career is the inspiration behind a TV movie from horror filmmaker Wes Craven.

The untitled film for cable’s TNT network will center on a fictional detective investigating crimes and events tied to supernatural forces, similar to what Marcos Quinones has done during much of time with the New York Police Department, the New York Post reported Monday.

Sometimes, there are logical explanations, and sometimes, there are not, Quinones said. At a certain point, it behooves you to know about both worlds, the worlds of physics, or science, and the other world of spirits.

As the NYPD’s only officer dealing with the occult, he is a much-sought after specialist and witness on cases dealing with the supernatural and has worked with more than 200 different law enforcement groups.
