OKAY.

LET'S GO, EVERYBODY.

COME ON.

DAD'S GONNA BE HOME SOON.
I STILL HAVE TO MAKE DINNER.

OKAY.
COME ON, MISS ABBY.

COME ON.

MOM, CAN I WATCH TV
AFTER DINNER TONIGHT?

WELL, WE WILL SEE, ABBY.

IF ABBY GETS TO WATCH,
I WANT TO WATCH TOO.

I WANT TO WATCH THE SHOW
ABOUT THE BASEBALL PLAYER

AND THE SINGER
WHO LIVE TOGETHER.



OKAY.

PEPPERELL, MASSACHUSETTS...

IT'S A SMALL TOWN ABOUT
30 MINUTES OUTSIDE OF BOSTON.

IT'S KNOWN
MORE FOR ITS PAPER MILLS

THAN ANY TYPE OF MAYHEM...

...THAT IS,
UNTIL THE FALL OF 1986.

THE ANDREWS FAMILY

IS GRIEVING THE LOSS
OF THEIR MOTHER AND WIFE...

GO AHEAD, GIRLS.

...AFTER A LONG BATTLE
WITH CANCER.

ANNIE AND JESSICA WERE
BOTH VERY CLOSE TO THEIR MOTHER.

PROBABLY AT ANY AGE, IT'S HARD.

BUT ESPECIALLY, YOU KNOW,
TWO YOUNG TEENAGE GIRLS

LOSING THEIR MOTHER
WAS VERY DIFFICULT FOR THEM.



WE MISS YOU, MOM.

I'M SURE YOU KNOW THAT.
I TELL YOU EVERY DAY.

I WISH YOU COULD BE WITH US
AGAIN.

WE ALL DO.
BUT YOU KNOW THAT, TOO.

I WON'T
EVER FORGET YOU, MOM.

GIRLS THAT YOUNG STILL
NEED A MOM TO GUIDE THEM.

THEIR MOTHER'S DEATH
WAS SHATTERING FOR THEM.

JESSIE, HONEY, IS THERE
SOMETHING YOU WANNA SAY TO MOM?

OKAY, GIRLS.

WE GOTTA GO.
I GOTTA WORK TONIGHT.

FRANK WAS A BUS DRIVER.

WE'LL BE BACK
NEXT WEEK, MOM.

HE WAS A SINGLE PARENT,

WORKING, TRYING TO TAKE CARE
OF THE FAMILY.

HE WAS SPENDING A LOT
OF TIME AT WORK.

AND HIS DAUGHTERS
WERE HOME ALONE.

THE GIRLS ARE DOING
THE BEST THEY CAN

TO PICK UP THE PIECES
OF THEIR TEENAGE LIVES.

ANDREWS RESIDENCE.

HEY, DANNY.

NO, NOT MUCH.

15-YEAR-OLD ANNIE HAS
EVEN STRUCK UP A FLIRTATION

WITH A LOCAL BOY,
DANNY LaPLANTE.

NO, YOU GO FIRST.

DANNY RECEIVED HER PHONE NUMBER
FROM ANOTHER FRIEND.

HE SAID HE WENT
TO ANOTHER HIGH SCHOOL.

HE WAS THE CAPTAIN
OF THE FOOTBALL TEAM.

AND IT LED TO A SERIES
OF CONVERSATIONS

OVER SEVERAL WEEKS,
WHERE THEY TALKED ALMOST DAILY.

NO. HOW 'BOUT YOU?

AND SHE THOUGHT HE SOUNDED
LIKE A CARING PERSON.

HE SOUNDED LIKE HE
WAS SUCCESSFUL IN SCHOOL.

SHE LIKED THE WAY
HE DESCRIBED HIMSELF.

SO SHE WAS ENTHUSIASTIC
ABOUT MEETING HIM.

DANNY, HEY,
I GOTTA FINISH SOME HOMEWORK.

YOU CAN CALL ME LATER
IF YOU WANT.

HOW'S DANNY?

SHUT UP.

HE ASKED ME TO GO GET ICE CREAM
WITH HIM THIS WEEKEND.

I KNOW WHY HE ASKED YOU
TO GET ICE CREAM.

WHY?

BECAUSE
IF YOU HAD SAID NO,

HE'D KNOW RIGHT AWAY
THAT YOU DIDN'T LIKE HIM

BECAUSE
EVERYONE LIKES ICE CREAM.

HA HA.

HEY, ANNIE.

IT'S NICE TO FINALLY
MEET YOU IN - - IN PERSON.

YOU TOO, DANNY.

SHE WAS SURPRISED
THAT HE WASN'T THE WAY

HE DESCRIBED HIMSELF AT ALL.

THE PERSON
SHE MET WAS NOT THE PERSON

SHE FELT SHE'D BEEN
TALKING TO ON THE PHONE.

SO IS IT HARD,
WITH YOUR MOM AND ALL?

YOU CAN SAY IT.
SHE'S DEAD.

OF COURSE IT'S HARD.

I MISS HER, AND I THINK
ABOUT HER EVERY DAY.

SOMETIMES
I TALK TO HER AT NIGHT.

I CAN ALMOST FEEL HER,
LIKE A PRESENCE.

WELL, DOES SHE EVER
TALK BACK?

I THINK I SHOULD GET GOING.

COME ON.
IT WAS JUST A JOKE.

I KNOW, BUT IT'S GETTING LATE.
I SHOULD GO.

WELL, LET ME AT LEAST
WALK YOU HOME FIRST.

NO. I'LL BE OKAY.

I'D RATHER GO ALONE.

ANNIE WAS VERY DISILLUSIONED.

SHE DIDN'T LIKE THE PERSON
THAT SHE MET.

AND SO SHE
DIDN'T WANT TO SEE HIM AGAIN.

AFTER THAT LONE,
DISAPPOINTING DATE,

ANNIE ASSUMES SHE'LL NEVER
SEE DANNY LaPLANTE AGAIN.

IN FACT, HE'S THE FURTHEST THING
FROM HER MIND.

IN THE FOREFRONT, AS ALWAYS,
IS HER ABSENT MOTHER.

THE GIRLS WOULD DO ANYTHING
TO HAVE HER BACK.

AND ONE NIGHT, IN JUNE OF 1987,

ANNIE AND JESSIE TRY SOMETHING
THEY'VE NEVER TRIED BEFORE - -

TO CONJURE UP THE SPIRIT
OF THEIR MOTHER.

REMEMBER,
JUST YES OR NO QUESTIONS.

IF IT MOVES THIS WAY,
IT'S NO.

IF IT MOVES THIS WAY,
IT'S YES.

LET'S START.

YOU WHO LIVED YESTERDAY,

COME BACK FROM THE SHADOWS,
INTO THE LIGHT,

AND SHOW YOURSELF HERE.

JESSIE, SAY IT WITH ME.

COME BACK FROM
THE SHADOWS, INTO THE LIGHT,

AND SHOW YOURSELF HERE.

MOM?

IS THAT YOU?

ANNIE, SHE CAN HEAR US?

MOM, DO YOU MISS US, TOO?

MOM... WHERE ARE YOU?

JESSIE,
ONLY YES OR NO QUESTIONS.

MOM... ARE YOU IN HEAVEN?

GIRLS, WHAT THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING DOWN HERE?

NOTHING, DAD,
JUST... NOTHING.

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE
NOTHING.

WRAP IT UP, WHATEVER IT IS.

HOMEWORK.

AFTER THE SEANCE,

THINGS ARE NEVER QUITE THE SAME
IN THE ANDREWS HOUSE.

ODD THINGS START HAPPENING
ALMOST IMMEDIATELY.

YOU WANT TO WATCH
"HEY NEIGHBOR"?

I GUESS.

ANNIE, WHAT WAS THAT?

IS IT MOM?

IS SHE TRYING
TO TELL US SOMETHING?

THE TWO GIRLS BELIEVE
THEY HAD CONTACTED THEIR MOTHER.

THEY THOUGHT THEIR MOTHER'S
GHOST WAS DOING THESE THINGS

TO SOMEHOW COMMUNICATE
WITH THEM.

AND THE STRANGE NOISES
DON'T STOP THERE.

WHOEVER YOU ARE,
I DARE YOU TO TAP AGAIN.

MOM?

MOM?

STOP!

AFTER CONDUCTING A SEANCE

IN THE BASEMENT
OF THEIR MASSACHUSETTS HOME...

COME BACK FROM
THE SHADOWS, INTO THE LIGHT,

AND SHOW YOURSELF HERE.

...TEENAGE SISTERS
ANNIE AND JESSIE ANDREWS

BELIEVE THEY'VE CONJURED UP

THE SPIRIT OF THEIR RECENTLY
DECEASED MOTHER.

STOP!

PROBLEM IS,
NO ONE ELSE BELIEVES THEM.

DAD, IT WAS HER.
SH-- SHE ANSWERED US.

IT WAS LIKE
A TAP, TAP, TAP.

LISTEN...

I KNOW.

I KNOW IT'S BEEN HARD
WITHOUT YOUR MOTHER.

IT'S BEEN HARD ON YOU.
IT'S BEEN HARD FOR ME, TOO.

BUT YOU HAVE TO STOP THIS.

THERE'S NO SUCH THING
AS A REAL SEANCE.

THERE'S NO SUCH THING
AS TALKING TO DEAD PEOPLE.

AND YOUR MOTHER'S GHOST
IS NOT...

KNOCKING ON WALLS

OR TAPPING ON THE WINDOWS
AT NIGHT.

IT - - IT'S NOT REAL.

THEN WHAT IS IT, DAD?
WHAT'S MAKING ALL THAT NOISE?

SOMETHING IS DOING IT.

I DON'T KNOW.

THEIR FATHER, FRANK,
NEVER HEARD ANY OF THE TAPS.

BUT HE WAS WORKING ALL THE TIME.

HE JUST THOUGHT THESE ARE
TWO TEENAGE GIRLS

WHO ARE
REACHING OUT DESPERATELY,

TRYING TO CONTACT THEIR MOTHER,

AND THEIR IMAGINATIONS
ARE GETTING THE BEST OF THEM.

WHO KNOWS?

IT'S AN OLD HOUSE.

IT CREAKS. IT GROANS.

DAD, THIS WASN'T
OLD-HOUSE SOUNDS.

WE'RE NOT LYING, DAD.

I DON'T WANT
TO HEAR ANY MORE.

I JUST WANT IT
TO STOP, PLEASE.

BUT IT DOESN'T STOP.

THE NOISES KEEP COMING,

AND ONLY WHEN ANNIE AND JESSIE
ARE HOME ALONE.

THEY'RE SEEING THINGS
LIKE LIGHTS

THAT WERE ON WOULD BE OFF.

LIGHTS WOULD FLICK ON AND OFF.

THERE'D BE KNOCKS ON THE WALLS
IN RESPONSE TO THEIR QUESTIONS.

THEY'D FIND THINGS
THAT HAD BEEN MOVED IN ROOMS

WHERE THEY KNEW
THEY HAD CHANGED POSITION

SINCE THEY'D LAST SEEN THEM.

THE DOORBELL WOULD RING,
AND THEY'D GO TO THE DOOR,

AND NOBODY'D BE THERE.

AND IF IT'S NOT
THEIR MOTHER'S SPIRIT

TRYING TO SPEAK TO THEM...

...THEN WHAT OR WHO IS IT?

IT'S IN THE BASEMENT.

WE HAVE TO SEE
WHAT IT IS.

ANNIE, NO.

LET'S GO.

WHO'S THERE?

MOM, IS THAT YOU?

JESSIE, IT'S NOT MOM.

WHO'S THERE?

ANNIE!

JESSIE, GO. GO!

ANNIE AND JESSIE
CALL THEIR FATHER

AND SHOW HIM WHAT THEY FOUND.

THIS TIME, HE CALLS THE POLICE.

THEY SAID THEY HEARD SOMETHING
BANGIN' ON THE PIPES

DOWN HERE, TOO.

IS THAT BLOOD?

IT'S KETCHUP.

GIRLS, THERE'S NO ONE
IN THE BASEMENT

AND NO ONE IN YOUR ROOMS.

THE WHOLE HOUSE
IS EMPTY EXCEPT FOR YOU TWO.

DAD!

YOU DON'T THINK
WE DID THIS, DO YOU?

WHO ELSE?

GIRLS, I CAN'T HAVE
THIS ANYMORE.

YOU BOTH NEED A THERAPIST.

YOU'RE BOTH GONNA SEE SOMEONE.
THAT'S NOT A DEBATE.

DAD, WE DIDN'T DO IT.
I SWEAR.

THERE IS SOMETHING IN THIS HOUSE
THAT'S DOING IT.

IT'S SOMETHING
IN THE HOUSE!

THE POLICE WOULDN'T
LISTEN TO THEM.

THEIR OWN FATHER
WOULDN'T LISTEN TO 'EM.

BUT THEY DID NOT THINK
THEY WERE IMAGINING THIS.

SO IT WAS VERY FRUSTRATING
FOR THEM.

LISTEN, FRANK. I'VE SEEN
WHAT HAPPENS WITH KIDS THESE AGE

WHEN THEY LOSE A PARENT

OR THERE'S A DIVORCE
OR WHATEVER.

AND, TRUST ME,
IT COULD BE A LOT WORSE.

I MEAN,
MAYBE IT'S JUST A PHASE.

KEEP A GOOD THOUGHT.

THANKS.

BUT IT'S NOT JUST A PHASE.

A FEW WEEKS AFTER SEEING THE
TAUNTING MESSAGE ON THE WALL,

THE NIGHTMARE
STARTS ALL OVER AGAIN.

WHAT ABOUT "THEY SAY
I'M IN LOVE"?

JESSIE, TURN IT DOWN.

WHAT?

SHH.

ANNIE, WAIT.

I DON'T WANT TO GO
UP THERE.

WE HAVE TO.

IT'S BACK.

JESSIE.

GO, GO!

NO!

AAAAH!

FOR MONTHS, AN UNKNOWN PRESENCE

HAS BEEN TORMENTING THE ANDREWS
SISTERS IN THEIR OWN HOME...

GO, GO!

...WITH MYSTERIOUS NOISES...

ANNIE.

...AND THREATENING MESSAGES.

BUT NO ONE ELSE SEEMS TO BELIEVE
THAT THE DANGER IS REAL.

THE FATHER THOUGHT THAT THEY
WERE JUST MAKING THINGS UP

AND TRYING TO COPE WITH
THE TRAGEDY IN THEIR OWN WAY.

HEY, FRANK.

I WANTED TO WAIT
TILL YOU GOT HERE TO GO IN.

I, THOUGHT IT'D BE BETTER
TO STAY WITH THE GIRLS

TILL YOU GOT HERE.

THEY SHOWED UP 30 MINUTES AGO,
SCARED OUT OF THEIR MINDS.

THEY'VE BEEN
LIKE THIS EVER SINCE.

THEY'RE SAYIN'
SOME REALLY WEIRD STUFF.

FRANK ANDREWS IS
DETERMINED TO PUT AN END

TO HIS DAUGHTERS' HYSTERICS.

HE HAS NO IDEA
WHAT AWAITS HIM INSIDE.

DON'T GO IN THERE, DAD.

STAY RIGHT HERE.
I'M GONNA CHECK THINGS OUT.

IT'LL BE OKAY.
I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

THE ACTUAL CAUSE
OF ALL THESE DISTURBANCES

WAS FAR MORE TERRIFYING

THAN ANYTHING
THEY COULD HAVE IMAGINED.

SO THE FATHER
CAME BACK TO THE HOUSE.

THE TVs WERE ON.
THE TVs WERE BLARING.

WAS THAT ON WHEN YOU LEFT?

SO NOW, FOR THE FIRST TIME,

HE REALIZED SOMETHING
MIGHT BE WRONG.

WHAT THE HELL?

HELLO?

SWEETIE?

AAAAH!

DAD?

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

GO, GO, GO, GO!

THEN... NO ONE
WAS SKEPTICAL ANYMORE.

THEIR FATHER WAS
CONFRONTED BY A MAN

WEARING HIS DEAD WIFE'S DRESS,

BRANDISHING A HATCHET
WITH WAR PAINT ON HIS FACE.

I WOULD THINK IT'S FAIR TO SAY,
AT THIS POINT,

HE REALIZED
THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING

MORE THAN HIS DAUGHTERS'
IMAGINATIONS AT PLAY HERE.

HE DIDN'T SAY ONE WORD
THE WHOLE TIME HE WAS HERE?

WELL, EVEN WITH
THE FACE PAINT,

WAS THERE ANYTHING
THAT YOU RECOGNIZED?

NO.

AND WHAT ABOUT YOU?

YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS,
MAYBE SOMEBODY YOU KNOW?

NO.

WELL, DON'T WORRY.

IF HE'S IN THERE,
WE'LL FIND HIM.

ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS?

HA. HA HA.

ALL RIGHT.

WHAT THE HELL?

HEY.

YOU COME OUT OF THERE
WITH YOUR HANDS UP.

AND YOU DO EVERYTHING
I TELL YOU, OR I WILL SHOOT.

AFTER MONTHS OF BEING
HAUNTED BY A MYSTERIOUS PRESENCE,

THE ANDREWS FAMILY
HAS JUST BEEN CONFRONTED

BY A VERY REAL,
AXE-WIELDING INTRUDER.

GO, GO, GO, GO!

NOW THE COPS THINK
THEY MAY HAVE CORNERED HIM

IN A CRAWL SPACE.

YOU DO EVERYTHING I TELL YOU,
OR I WILL SHOOT.

LET ME SEE
BOTH OF YOUR HANDS.

SLOW.

STAND UP.

NOW, YOU TURN AROUND.

YOU PUT YOUR HANDS
UP ON THE WALL.

NOW!

DOWN, DOWN.

HEY, HEY.

KEEP MOVIN'.

YOU WANT TO TELL ME
WHAT YOU'RE DOIN' HERE?

ASK ANNIE.

SHE KNOWS
WHAT I'M DOING HERE.

THE TEENAGER LIVING IN
THE WALLS OF THE ANDREWS FAMILY HOME

IS NONE OTHER
THAN DANNY LaPLANTE...

HEY, ANNIE.

...THE BOY THAT ANNIE
HAD ONLY GONE OUT WITH ONCE.

MY GOD.

HE WAS COMIN' AND GOIN'
THROUGH THERE.

SO IN THIS VOID
THAT WAS BETWEEN THE WALLS,

LaPLANTE WOULD HIDE
WHILE THE FAMILY SLEPT AT NIGHT

OR WHILE THEY WERE IN THE HOUSE.

WELL, THEY DID
A THOROUGH SEARCH OF THE HOUSE.

AND THEY WENT INTO THE BASEMENT.

AND BEHIND THE DRYER,
IN A HOLE IN THE WALL,

THEY FOUND WRAPPERS.

THEY FOUND LIGHTS.

SO IT APPEARED HE'D ACTUALLY
BEEN LIVING

INSIDE THE WALLS OF THE HOUSE.

SO HE WAS LIVING BACK THERE,
IN THE CRAWL SPACES?

IT LOOKS LIKE IT, YEAH.

FOR HOW LONG?

BY THE LOOKS OF IT, IT COULD'VE
BEEN GOIN' ON FOR MONTHS.

HE WAS, IN A SENSE,
HOLDING THOSE PEOPLE HOSTAGE.

NOBODY WOULD HAVE THOUGHT
THAT SOME GUY

WOULD BE LIVING IN THEIR WALLS.

I WOULD BE MORE APT
TO BELIEVE THE SEANCE.

YOUR HOME IS THE ONE PLACE
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO FEEL SAFE.

TO FIND OUT A DANGEROUS PERSON

HAD BEEN LIVING
INSIDE YOUR HOUSE,

I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW TERRIFYING
THAT MUST HAVE BEEN.

YOU SEE, FRANK,
THAT'S WHY NOTHING

HAPPENED
WHEN YOU'D COME DOWN.

HE COULD SEE YOU COMIN'
AND GOIN'

THROUGH THE VENTS
UNDER THE STAIRS.

UNBELIEVABLE.

BUT DON'T WORRY ABOUT
A THING.

HE'S NOT GONNA BOTHER YOU GUYS
ANYMORE.

THANKS, DETECTIVE.
I'M GONNA GO FIND MY DAUGHTERS.

YEAH, ALL RIGHT.

16-YEAR-OLD DANNY LaPLANTE

IS HIT WITH A LIST OF CHARGES - -

ARMED ASSAULT IN A DWELLING,

BREAKING AND ENTERING,

MALICIOUS INJURY TO A PROPERTY,
AND ARMED BURGLARY.

LaPLANTE INITIALLY WENT
TO BRIDGEWATER HOSPITAL,

WHERE HE WAS GIVEN
AN EVALUATION.

THEN HE WENT INTO
A JUVENILE DETENTION FACILITY.

AND DESPITE THE FACT

THAT DANNY LaPLANTE
IS NOW SAFELY BEHIND BARS,

THE ANDREWS DECIDE TO START
FRESH AND MOVE TO NEW HAMPSHIRE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU
COULD EVER FEEL SAFE IN A HOUSE

WHERE YOU HAD AN INTRUDER LIVING
WITH YOU INSIDE THE WALLS

FOR MANY, MANY MONTHS.

IT'S VERY CREEPY.

DO YOU THINK THEY GET
THE SAME CHANNELS THERE ON TV?

I DON'T KNOW.
WE HAVE TO SEE, I GUESS.

HI, GIRLS.

HEY, DAD.

ANNIE, HAVE A SEAT.

I WANT TO TALK
TO YOU AND YOUR SISTER.

I NEED TO SAY SOMETHING.

WHEN ALL THIS STARTED,

I DOUBTED YOU.

I EVEN BLAMED YOU.

I WAS WRONG, AND I'M SORRY.

I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT,
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS,

I'LL NEVER DOUBT YOUR WORD
AGAIN, EITHER ONE OF YOU.

IT'S OKAY, DAD.

I MIGHT NOT HAVE BELIEVED
US EITHER.

THE ANDREWS FAMILY
TRIES TO FORGET ABOUT THE HORROR

THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH.

THEY HAVE NO WAY
OF KNOWING THAT THE NIGHTMARE

THAT IS DANNY LaPLANTE
IS FAR FROM OVER.

IN OCTOBER OF 1987,
THE COURT DETERMINED

DANIEL LaPLANTE SHOULD BE TRIED
AS AN ADULT FOR HIS CRIMES

INSTEAD OF REMAINING
IN A JUVENILE FACILITY.

AND AT THAT POINT, HIS MOTHER
WAS ABLE TO POST BOND FOR HIM.

SO SHE POSTED A $10,000 BOND,

AND HE WAS ABLE TO COME OUT
AND LIVE WITH HIS MOTHER

AND WITH HIS STEPFATHER.

RELEASING DANNY LaPLANTE
TURNS OUT TO BE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE...

COME ON.

...BECAUSE
WITHIN JUST A FEW WEEKS,

DANNY TARGETS A YOUNG FAMILY
LIVING IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

I WANT TO WATCH THE SHOW
ABOUT THE BASEBALL PLAYER

AND THE SINGER
WHO LIVE TOGETHER.

OKAY.

A WOMAN IN TOWN,
MRS. ANDREW GUSTAFSON,

WHO WAS PREGNANT AT THE TIME,

AND HER TWO CHILDREN,
AGES 5 AND 8,

WERE ALL MURDERED
IN THEIR OWN HOME.

HE KILLED HER FIRST,
WE THINK, SIR.

SHOT TWICE IN THE HEAD.

BEST WE CAN TELL,
HE WAS ROBBING THE PLACE.

THE LADY CAME HOME,
FOUND HIM DOING IT.

THE KIDS
ARE IN THE OTHER ROOM.

HE...

HE DROWNED THEM, SIR.

I THINK, WHEN THE POLICE
SAW THE BLOOD ON THE WALL,

COUPLED WITH THE DRINK
THAT WAS ON THE TABLE,

THEY RECALLED THE SAME PATTERN
AT THE ANDREWS HOME.

THERE CERTAINLY WERE SOME
PARALLELS IN THOSE CRIME SCENES.

AFTER ALL THIS,

I THINK WE SHOULD DROP IN
ON LaPLANTE UNANNOUNCED.

LET'S GO KNOCK
ON HIS DOOR.

HE LIVED ALMOST DIRECTLY
BEHIND THE GUSTAFSON HOUSE.

IT WAS A THROUGH
A THICK AREA OF WOODS,

PROBABLY LESS THAN A MILE
FROM THEM.

BUT THERE WAS NO OTHER HOUSES
BETWEEN THEM.

- ELAINE MOORE?
- YEAH?

I'M DETECTIVE KAY,
PEPPERELL POLICE DEPARTMENT.

BEFORE YOU SAY ANYTHING, I KNOW.
OKAY? I KNOW.

I KNOW HE MISSED A MEETING
WITH HIS LAWYER.

HE SAID HE WAS GONNA
GET A RIDE WITH SOMEONE,

AND THE GUY
NEVER SHOWED UP.

THAT'S NOT WHY WE'RE HERE.
WE NEED TO CLEAN SOME THINGS UP.

AND I NEED TO KNOW NOW,
IS DANNY HERE?

WHAT IS THIS ABOUT?

I NEED TO KNOW NOW,
IS DANNY HERE?

DANNY!

CAN YOU COME OUT HERE,
PLEASE?

DANNY!

NOW, PLEASE!

DANNY!

DANNY, STOP!

DANNY, STOP!
PEPPERELL POLICE!

DANNY!

DANNY!

DANNY, STOP!
PEPPERELL POLICE!

DANNY, STOP!

HE HAD WATCHED THE NEWS REPORTS.

HE HAD SEEN THE ACTIVITY.

HE KNEW THE POLICE
WERE IN TOWNSEND.

AND HE DID NOT WANT
TO BE CAPTURED.

DANNY, STOP!

16-YEAR-OLD DANIEL LaPLANTE,

WHO TERRORIZED
THE ANDREWS FAMILY FOR MONTHS

IN PEPPERELL, MASSACHUSETTS,
IS NOW THE PRIME SUSPECT

IN THE TRIPLE MURDER
OF ANOTHER FAMILY.

THIS MURDERER WAS ON THE LOOSE.

AND WE DIDN'T KNOW
WHAT HE WAS CAPABLE OF DOING.

WE WERE DESPERATE
TO FIND DANIEL LaPLANTE.

COULD THE ANDREWS FAMILY,

ALMOST FINISHED PACKING FOR
THEIR MOVE TO NEW HAMPSHIRE...

...BE NEXT IN DANNY'S SIGHTS?

HELLO?

HOW'D THIS HAPPEN?

DAD?

WELL,
THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW.

DAD, WHAT'S WRONG?

BED TIME. LET'S GO.

SERIOUSLY, COME ON.
LET'S GO TO BED.

WHEN FRANK ANDREWS
GETS THE STUNNING NEWS,

HE CAN'T BRING HIMSELF TO TELL
HIS DAUGHTERS RIGHT AWAY.

FOR 2 DAYS,
POLICE ARE FLOODED WITH TIPS.

BUT DANNY LaPLANTE
IS IN THE WIND.

COMMUNITY WAS ON EDGE.

THREE UPSTANDING CITIZENS
OF THEIR COMMUNITY

WERE JUST VICIOUSLY MURDERED.

SO THE TOWN WAS LOCKED DOWN.

WE HAD A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT
OF LAW ENFORCEMENT PRESENCE

LOOKING FOR DANNY LaPLANTE.

EVERYONE'S OUT
TO CATCH THIS KID.

WE HAD OFFICERS
THAT WERE REPORTING FOR DUTY

THAT WERE OFF DUTY
WHO WANTED TO COME IN

AND PARTICIPATE IN THAT SEARCH.

THAT'S HOW DESPERATE EVERYONE
WAS TO FIND THIS KID.

AND THEN, SUDDENLY,

A WITNESS REPORTS A POSSIBLE
SIGHTING OF LaPLANTE...

ALL RIGHT, GUYS.
LET'S GET READY.

...IN A LUMBERYARD 8 MILES
OUTSIDE OF PEPPERELL.

THE POLICE HAD
THE LUMBERYARD SURROUNDED.

THEY HAD HELICOPTERS UP TO MAKE
SURE HE COULDN'T ESCAPE.

LOST HIM.

LEFT.

READY?

Sergeant, over here.

HEY, SULLIVAN.

COULD YOU CALL RADIO,
LET 'EM KNOW THIS AREA'S CLEAR?

THE POLICE USED A RUSE.

THEY HAD THE HELICOPTERS
PULL BACK.

THEY HAD ALL THE POLICE OFFICERS
APPEAR TO PULL BACK.

BUT TWO POLICE OFFICERS
STAYED CLOSE BY.

DANNY, WE KNOW
YOU'RE IN THERE.

COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP,
SLOWLY.

DON'T DO ANYTHING
TO MAKE ME SHOOT YOU

'CAUSE I DO WANT TO
SHOOT YOU.

DON'T SHOOT.

GET ON THE GROUND.

GET ON THE GROUND!

ALL THE WAY DOWN.

DON'T SHOOT.
DON'T SHOOT.

ON YOUR FACE.

HANDS OUT TO THE SIDES.
DO IT NOW.

WHEN HE WAS ARRESTED,
HE WAS ACTUALLY LAUGHING.

THAT REALLY SHOWS SOME KIND
OF SICK, TWISTED MIND.

GIMME YOUR OTHER HAND.

HE WAS REMOVED,
PLACED UNDER ARREST,

AND WAS TAKEN
TO THE STATE POLICE BARRACKS

IN CONCORD, MASS.

DANNY LaPLANTE'S REIGN OF TERROR

OVER THIS SMALL MASSACHUSETTS
TOWN IS FINALLY OVER.

HELLO?

YEAH.

OKAY.

GOOD.

THAT'S, -
THAT'S GOOD TO HEAR.

AND - - AND,
DETECTIVE, THANK YOU.

PEOPLE WERE INCREDIBLY RELIEVED
ONCE WE WAS APPREHENDED.

HEY, GIRLS.
I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS.

THEY CAUGHT DANNY LaPLANTE.

HE'S IN JAIL.

WE DON'T HAVE TO MOVE,
UNLESS YOU WANT TO.

I MEAN,
DO YOU STILL WANT TO LEAVE?

YEAH.

YEAH, DEFINITELY.

YEAH.

LET'S GET OUTTA HERE.

LaPLANTE IS FOUND
GUILTY OF THE MURDERS

OF PATRICIA GUSTAFSON
AND HER TWO CHILDREN,

7- YEAR-OLD ABIGAIL
AND 5-YEAR-OLD WILLIAM.

HE RECEIVES A SENTENCE OF LIFE
IN PRISON WITHOUT PAROLE.

DANNY LaPLANTE WAS A
LIVING NIGHTMARE FOR EVERYONE

WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THIS CASE.

AND WE WERE ABLE
TO PUT THAT NIGHTMARE TO BED

ONCE LaPLANTE WAS PUT
BEHIND BARS

FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.

DANIEL LaPLANTE
NEVER SHOWED ANY REMORSE.

EVEN DURING THE TRIAL,

THERE WAS NOT A SHRED OF EMOTION
ON DANIEL LaPLANTE'S FACE.

HE IS A SOCIOPATH.

IF THEY HADN'T APPREHENDED HIM,

I'M CERTAIN
HE WOULD HAVE KILLED AGAIN.
