GOD.

WHAT THE HELL?

FRANKIE!

FRANKIE, YOU IN THERE?

MY GOD.

PLEASE.

TWO HOURS OUTSIDE OF SEATTLE

LIES THE SMALL COUNTY
OF GRAYS HARBOR, WASHINGTON.

GRAYS HARBOR
IS A RURAL COMMUNITY.

ITS PRINCIPLE CITY IS ABERDEEN.

IN THE EASTERN PORTION
OF THE COUNTY,



IT'S MOSTLY FARMLAND
AND WHAT WE CALL "THE VALLEY,"

THE CHEHALIS RIVER VALLEY,

WHICH RUNS UP
THROUGH GRAYS HARBOR

AND OUT TO THE SEA
PAST ABERDEEN.

THE SERENE LANDSCAPE
AND SMALL-TOWN CHARM

ARE WHAT'S BROUGHT 31-YEAR-OLD
FRANKIE COCHRAN

BACK TO ABERDEEN
AFTER SEVERAL YEARS AWAY.

I WAS WORKING
AT THE LITTLE RED BARN.

IT'S JUST A LITTLE FAMILY DINER

I'VE BEEN IN AND OUT OF
SINCE I WAS A LITTLE,

TINY GIRL, BASICALLY.

AND IT WAS MY COMFORT ZONE.

ALL RIGHT, FELLAS,
THIS SHOULD FILL YOU UP.

- THANK YOU.
- LOOKING GOOD.



YEAH, DIG IN.

- GOT SOME FRESH COFFEE FOR YOU.
- JUST WHAT I NEED.

YOUR COFFEE IS STRONG.

WELL, IT'S LIKE
AN ALARM CLOCK IN A CUP.

KEEP YOU BUZZING
ALL MORNING.

AND, HONEY, AT MY AGE,
THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I NEED.

ME TOO, BILL. ME TOO.

FRANKIE'S VERY OUTGOING,
VERY FRIENDLY.

SHE'S LIVELY.
SHE'S SOCIAL.

I LOVE TO HAVE FUN.
I LOVE TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH.

I LOVE PEOPLE, YOU KNOW?

HEY, LISTEN, FRANKIE,

ONE OF MY BUDDIES, CLIFF,
HE JUST MOVED TO TOWN.

WE'RE GOING OUT
TO THE POOL HALL TONIGHT.

YOU SHOULD TOTALLY COME WITH US.
YEAH.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE
A SETUP TO ME.

YOU THINK?

LOOK, HE'S A REAL GOOD GUY,

I'VE KNOWN HIM A LONG TIME,
AND I THINK YOU MIGHT LIKE HIM.

I APPRECIATE IT, SAM.
REALLY, I DO.

BUT I TOLD YOU,
I AM DONE WITH ALL OF THAT.

COME ON.

HONEY, IF I WERE
30 YEARS YOUNGER,

I WOULD TRY
TO CATCH YOU MYSELF.

NO MORE NETS FOR ME,
BILL.

I CAN'T BE CAUGHT.

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

WELCOME TO LITTLE RED BARN.
WHAT CAN I GET YOU TODAY?

UM...

THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION.

I CAN'T SEEM TO MAKE UP MY MIND.
WHY DON'T YOU SURPRISE ME?

YOU WANT ME
TO CHOOSE FOR YOU?

WOMAN ALWAYS KNOWS BEST,
RIGHT?

UM... OKAY.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

I'M SIZING UP
YOUR STOMACH.

ALL RIGHT,
I THINK I GOT IT.

NOW, SPEAK NOW
OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE.

GO AHEAD. I HAVE A FEELING
I'M IN GOOD HANDS.

OKAY.

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

DAVID GERARD WAS CHARMING.

HE FLIRTED HER UP,
CHATTED HER UP,

AND SHE THOUGHT
HIS HAIR LOOKED NICE.

GOD.

OKAY.

SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

DO YOU - - DO YOU LIKE IT?

SO, HOW DID I DO?

IS THIS IT?

HOW DID I DO?

WELL?

DELICIOUS.

COULDN'T HAVE PICKED
A BETTER CHOICE MYSELF.

GOOD.
I'M GLAD YOU LIKE IT.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE
I CAN GET YOU?

JUST ONE MORE THING.

YOUR NUMBER?

UM...

LET ME GUESS,
YOU'RE MARRIED.

NO. NO,
I'M NOT MARRIED.

UM...
BOYFRIEND?

NO.
UNDERCOVER SPY?

NO. BUT IF I WAS, I WOULDN'T
TELL YOU, NOW, WOULD I?

PROBABLY NOT A GOOD IDEA.
UNH-UNH.

PBHT.

I CAN'T BELIEVE
I'M DOING THIS.

I NEVER
GIVE OUT MY NUMBER.

OF COURSE NOT.

UM, MAKE SURE YOU MIX
THAT GRAVY IN WITH IT.

OKAY.

IN SPITE OF HERSELF,
FRANKIE FALLS FAST FOR DAVID.

SOON ENOUGH, THEY'RE CELEBRATING
ONE MONTH TOGETHER.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

CLOSE YOUR EYES.

WHY?

JUST TRUST ME
AND CLOSE THEM.

OKAY.

OKAY, OPEN THEM.

DAVID.

OPEN IT.

MY GOD.
YOU LIKE IT?

YES, THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL.

GOOD. GO AHEAD.
PUT THEM ON.

WOW.

THAT WAS VERY EXCITING.

I'VE NEVER HAD ANYBODY
BUY ME ANYTHING.

I WAS VERY IMPRESSED.

"MAYBE HE REALLY
DOES CARE ABOUT ME."

HOW DO I LOOK?

PERFECT.

THANK YOU.

I LOVE YOU.

DAVID AND FRANKIE'S
RELATIONSHIP CONTINUES TO GROW.

THE FOLLOWING JULY,
THE COUPLE MOVES IN TOGETHER.

DAVID PROMISED
FRANKIE THE MOON,

WHAT WAS FOR HER THE MOON - -
A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE,

SOMEBODY WHO WOULD HELP HER
WITH THE BILLS.

SHE THOUGHT THAT WAS WONDERFUL.

- WOW.
- LOOK AT YOU.

THAT WAS FAST.

YES.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

IT LOOKS GREAT.

I'LL GET STARTED
ON THE BED FRAME NEXT.

WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.
LET'S TAKE A BREAK. COME ON.

GOOD IDEA.

YOU WANT SOME OF THIS?

YEAH, SURE. THANKS.

I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE
THIS IS ALL OURS.

WELL, IT'S NO CASTLE.
BUT...

I DON'T NEED A CASTLE.
I JUST NEED YOU.

I JUST
WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY.

I AM HAPPY.

WELL, THAT'S ALL
THAT MATTERS.

I WANT TO TAKE CARE
OF YOU, MARRY YOU,

FILL THIS HOME
WITH OUR KIDS.

IS SOMETHING WRONG?
DID I SAY SOMETHING WRONG?

NO, IT'S JUST THAT - - I MEAN,
MARRIAGE AND KIDS IS A LOT.

I WASN'T IN NO WAY FRAME OF MIND

TO THINK ABOUT MARRIAGE
AT THE TIME.

ALL I WANTED WAS A JOB
AND A HOME.

IT WAS JUST VERY FAST.

I'M NOT SAYING "NO."
I JUST - -

WE JUST MOVED IN
TOGETHER.

LET'S JUST TAKE IT
ONE STEP AT A TIME, OKAY?

IF I LOST YOU, I...

HEY, YOU'RE NOT
GONNA LOSE ME.

I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
OKAY?

OKAY?
ALL RIGHT.

BUT AS THEY SETTLE
INTO THEIR NEW LIFE TOGETHER,

FRANKIE STARTS TO SEE CRACKS
IN DAVID'S SHINING ARMOR.

DAVID COULD NOT HOLD JOBS

BECAUSE HE COULDN'T
GET ALONG WITH PEOPLE.

AND SO FRANKIE FELT
THAT SHE HAD TO WORK.

DAVID IS VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT IT.

HE WANTED HER TO BE
AT HOME ALL THE TIME.

IT'S BUSY.

I TALKED TO A BUDDY
OF MINE TODAY.

YEAH?

YEAH, HE SAID HE'S GONNA
PUT A GOOD WORD IN

FOR ME WITH HIS BOSS.

HONEY, THAT'S GREAT.
YEAH, YEAH, HE THINKS

THEY MIGHT NEED SOME HELP
WITH A FEW IN-STATE ROUTES.

SO...

WELL, YOU'VE GOT
THE EXPERIENCE, FOR SURE.

YEAH, FINGERS CROSSED.

I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

SAM?
SAMMY?

FRANKIE.
IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU.

YOU ARE A SIGHT
FOR SORE EYES.

GIRL, HOW ARE YOU?
I'M GOOD.

- I'M GOOD. HOW ARE YOU?
- I'M GOOD.

ARE YOU STILL
WORKING WITH CAPTAIN BILL?

YEP, STILL WORKING
FOR OLD CAPTAIN BILL.

HEY, GUESS WHAT.

ME AND CARLY GOT ENGAGED.

THAT IS SO WONDERFUL.
CONGRATULATIONS.

I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE SAID "YES."
HOW ABOUT YOU?

HOW YOU BEEN?
HOW'S LIFE HERE TREATING YOU?

LET'S GO.

HEY, I WANT YOU
TO MEET SOMEBODY.

SAM, DAVID.
DAVID, SAM.

HEY, BUDDY, HOW YOU DOING?
NICE TO MEET YOU.

UM, SAM USED TO COME IN HERE
EVERY MORNING TO GET BRE...

LET'S GO.
EXCUSE ME?

LET'S GO.

I'M NOT FINISHED
WITH MY SHIFT YET.

I SAID WE'RE LEAVING NOW.
WHAT? DAVID, HE'S MY FRIEND.

HEY, BUDDY, I DON'T KNOW
WHAT YOU THINK IS GOING ON - -

LET'S GO!

DAVID GERARD HELD HER HOSTAGE,
IN A SENSE.

WHAT THE HELL?

I'M SORRY, I - - I GOT TO GO.
TELL BILL I SAID "HI."

JAN, COVER ME.

HE BEGAN TO CONTROL HER.

WHO WAS SHE ALLOWED TO TALK TO,
WHAT SHE WAS ALLOWED TO WEAR,

WHERE SHE WAS
ALLOWED TO WORK.

HE WANTED HER
TO HAVE NO ESCAPE.

FOR THE LAST THREE MONTHS,

31-YEAR-OLD FRANKIE COCHRAN
HAS LOVED SHARING LIFE

WITH BOYFRIEND DAVID GERARD.

YEAH, THAT SOUNDS GOOD.

DO YOU WANT TO DO
MAYBE AROUND NOON?

WE CAN GO TO LUNCH.

BUT LATELY,
THINGS HAVE CHANGED.

OKAY. THAT'S FINE.

AND THEN MAYBE WE CAN
RUN DOWN THE STREET

SO I CAN GET
SOME STUFF WORKED ON.

OKAY, YEAH, SOUNDS GOOD.

WHAT IS WRONG
WITH YOU?

WHO IS HE?

DAMN IT,
THAT WAS MY MOM.

SHE WANTED TO KNOW
IF I WANTED TO GO SHOPPING.

YOU'D BETTER NOT
BE MESSING WITH ME...

...OR THERE'S
GONNA BE TROUBLE.

JEALOUSY STARTED POPPING UP.

I WASN'T ALLOWED TO TALK
TO ANYBODY - - GIRLS, NOBODY.

I COULDN'T HAVE A LIFE.

SOON, FRANKIE CAN'T DENY

THAT THERE'S A SIDE
OF DAVID SHE DOESN'T KNOW.

HEY, SAVE SOME
HOT WATER FOR ME.

FRANKIE FOUND
A NEWSPAPER CLIPPING

ABOUT A HOUSE FIRE, IN WHICH
A WOMAN NAMED PATTY RODRIGUEZ

AND HER SMALL CHILDREN
WERE KILLED IN 1995.

I HAVE NEVER RAN ACROSS
SOMETHING LIKE THAT BEFORE.

YOU KNOW, IT - -
IT WAS WEIRD TO ME.

"WHY WOULD YOU HAVE THIS?"

HEY.

HEY.

HEAR ANYTHING FROM YOUR FRIEND
ABOUT THAT JOB?

YEAH, YEAH,
SAID THEY'D LET ME KNOW

AT THE END OF THIS WEEK.

IT'LL ONLY BE
PART-TIME FOR NOW,

BUT COULD EVENTUALLY
TURN INTO FULL-TIME.

THAT'S GOOD.

DAVID, CAN I TALK
TO YOU ABOUT SOMETHING?

YEAH, YEAH, SURE.
WHAT'S UP?

FOUND THAT WHILE
I WAS DOING LAUNDRY.

WHAT IS IT?

IT WAS IN YOUR WALLET.

IT FELL OUT OF YOUR PANTS
WHEN I WENT TO WASH THEM.

YOU WENT THROUGH
MY WALLET?

WHY ARE YOU CARRYING AROUND A PICTURE
OF SOME PEOPLE WHO DIED IN A FIRE?

AND WHY ARE YOU
GOING THROUGH MY WALLET?

WHO ARE THEY?
I MEAN, DO YOU KNOW THEM?

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT
IF I WENT THROUGH YOUR WALLET?

THAT'S FINE. BE MY GUEST.
YOU CAN GO THROUGH - -

DAVID? DAVID?

DAVID,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

DAVID?

PATTY WAS
MY GIRLFRIEND.

BY THE TIME I GOT TO HER HOUSE,
IT WAS TOO LATE.

SHE AND THE BOYS...
I COULDN'T SAVE THEM.

MY GOD.

DAVID,
WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?

I DON'T KNOW.

THAT'S A LOT TO CARRY.

AFTER PATTY DIED,
I NEVER THOUGHT...

AND THEN I MET YOU.

IT'S OKAY.

YOU'RE MY ANGEL,
FRANKIE.

I KNOW
I CAN BE DIFFICULT.

IT'S JUST I GET SO FREAKED OUT
ABOUT LOSING YOU.

OKAY, I - -
I CAN'T LOSE YOU.

YOU'RE NOT GONNA
LOSE ME.

I LOVE YOU.

COME HERE.

DAVID DEMANDS
MORE AND MORE OF FRANKIE'S TIME.

AT HIS REQUEST,
SHE EVEN QUITS HER JOB.

I'VE NEVER HAD SOMEBODY
TELL ME I COULDN'T WORK.

"YOU AIN'T WORKING, PERIOD.
THAT AIN'T ALLOWED.

YOU ARE TO SIT IN THIS HOUSE,
WITH ME, AT ALL TIMES

AND NOT DO NOTHING.
THAT'S THE WAY IT IS."

BUT HE HAD LOST HIS JOB.

I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT
HOW HE THOUGHT

WE WERE GONNA PAY
FOR OUR HOME, YOU KNOW.

AS THE BILLS START TO PILE UP,

FRANKIE KNOWS SHE CAN'T
JUST SIT AROUND ANYMORE.

THERE'S A LITTLE
SHORT-STOP-TYPE STORE.

SO I WENT OUT AND PUT
MY APPLICATION IN OUT THERE.

MR. ROYCE?

YES.

HI, FRANKIE COCHRAN.

IT'S MONEY. IT'LL PAY FOR OUR
HOUSE. SOMEBODY'S GOT TO WORK.

UM, SIR, I'M A HARD WORKER.
I'M ALWAYS ON TIME.

I'M REALLY GOOD
WITH PEOPLE.

I CAN WORK WEEKDAYS, WEEKNIGHTS,
MORNINGS. WHATEVER YOU NEED.

I JUST WANTED TO PERSONALLY
MAKE SURE YOU GOT IT.

TELL YOU WHAT,
WHY DON'T YOU

COME BACK TOMORROW
FOR AN INTERVIEW?

ABSOLUTELY. WHAT TIME?

NOON OKAY?
I'LL BE HERE.

SEE YOU THEN.
HAVE A GOOD DAY.

YOU, TOO.
AND THANK YOU.

FRANKIE HEADS HOME,

EAGER TO SHARE
HER GOOD NEWS WITH DAVID.

MY FAVORITE.

HEY, IT HAS TO COOL OFF.
COME ON. I'M STARVING.

THERE'S GARLIC BREAD
ON THE TABLE.

SO... YOU WANT TO HEAR
THE GOOD NEWS?

LAY IT ON ME.

I GOT A JOB INTERVIEW.

I KNOW YOU DON'T
WANT ME WORKING.

BUT I FIGURED,
SINCE WE CAN'T PAY - -

DAVID,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

DAVID? DAVID?

DAVID!

NO! NO!

NO!

HE DESTROYED EVERYTHING
IN THE HOUSE, JUST EVERYTHING.

THERE WAS NOT ONE
UNBROKEN THING IN THAT HOUSE.

DAVID, MY GOD.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

WHAT?

DAVID TOOK HER CLOTHES,

PILED THEM ON THE FLOOR
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM,

AND POURED BLEACH
ALL OVER EVERYTHING.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

WHY... WHY ARE YOU
DOING THIS, DAVID?

NO, NO, DON'T!

I WAS LIKE, "MY GOD.
WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME?"

IN TIMES THROUGHOUT LIFE,
WE ALL GO THROUGH BAD THINGS.

NEVER AS BAD AS THAT.

HELLO?

YES, MY NAME IS FRANKIE,
FRANKIE COCHRAN.

MY BOYFRIEND
JUST WRECKED MY HOUSE.

PLEASE, CAN SOMEBODY COME?
I'M SCARED.

PLEASE, SOMEBODY, COME.

POLICE ARE
ON THE SCENE WITHIN THE HOUR.

STILL, IT'S LONG ENOUGH FOR
FRANKIE TO HAVE SECOND THOUGHTS.

SO, MS. COCHRAN,
WE'VE GOT YOUR STATEMENT.

WOULD YOU LIKE
TO PRESS CHARGES?

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT?
WHAT HAPPENS TO DAVID?

HE'LL BE ARRESTED
AND TAKEN TO JAIL.

I NEED TO
THINK ABOUT IT.

OKAY.

THERE WAS JUST
SOMETHING ABOUT HIM THAT,

EVEN THOUGH I SEEN
WHAT DAVE DID TO ME,

I DID NOT BELIEVE.

I WAS LIKE, "NO, YOU'RE WRONG.
YOU HAVE TO BE WRONG SOMEHOW."

AFTER WATCHING
HER BOYFRIEND, DAVID,

TRASH THE HOME THEY'VE SHARED,
31-YEAR-OLD FRANKIE COCHRAN

NEEDS SOME TIME
TO CLEAR HER HEAD.

I HOPE IT'S OKAY.

I CAN NEVER SEEM TO MAKE IT
AS GOOD AS YOU DO.

I HAD HAD ENOUGH,
AND I LEFT AND WENT TO

MY MOM AND DAD'S HOUSE
AND STAYED THERE.

I JUST WISH THINGS
WOULD GO BACK TO NORMAL.

I KNOW.
I KNOW YOU LOVE HIM.

BUT YOU JUST
GOT TO MOVE ON.

I FEEL LIKE
SUCH A FAILURE.

NO, DARLING.

YOU JUST FELL IN LOVE
WITH THE WRONG GUY.

MY MOTHER,
SHE WAS ON ME ALL THE TIME.

SHE JUST DIDN'T LIKE HIM.
HE GAVE HER THE CREEPS.

BUT I WASN'T LISTENING
TO NOBODY.

TO HELL WITH EVERYBODY ELSE

BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT
IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW.

BUT THE FOLLOWING MORNING,

FRANKIE REALIZES HER MOM
MAY BE ON TO SOMETHING.

FRANKIE, I'M LEAVING THE CAT'S
CAT FOOD BY THE DOOR.

I SHOULD BE HOME
AT 5:00.

OKAY, SEE YOU.

SHE WENT OUT TO LEAVE FOR WORK,
AND THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG.

HER CAT HAD BEEN KILLED
AND PUT IN THE CAR.

MY MOM WAS SCARED TO DEATH.

I THINK IT WAS A THREAT - -
HIM TELLING ME,

"I'M GONNA GET YOU."

BUT WITH NO WAY TO
PROVE IT, FRANKIE AND HER FAMILY

DO ALL THEY CAN
JUST TO FORGET ABOUT DAVID.

THAT IS,
UNTIL A FEW WEEKS LATER.

FRANKIE.

FRANKIE.

DAVID.

WOULD YOU JUST COME
TALK TO ME? PLEASE, FRANKIE?

WOULD YOU PLEASE JUST
COME OUT HERE AND TALK TO ME?

MAN, YOU HAVE GOT
SOME NERVE SHOWING UP HERE.

PLEASE, LOOK, I - - I JUST WANT
TO TALK TO HER. OKAY, I'M...

YEAH, SHE DOESN'T
WANT TO TALK TO YOU.

I'M SORRY, OKAY.

I DON'T WANT TO TALK
TO YOU, EITHER.

I GOT TO EXPLAIN.

THERE'S NO EXPLANATION
GOOD ENOUGH

FOR WHAT YOU DID TO HER,
DAVID.

I SWEAR TO GOD. I JUST
NEED TO SEE HER. ALL RIGHT?

BUDDY, YOU GOT TWO CHOICES - -
YOU KEEP THIS UP

AND I CALL THE COPS,
OR YOU COULD JUST GO.

LARRY, LOOK,
IT'S NOT ABOUT ME AND YOU.

IT'S ABOUT ME AND FRANKIE.
ALL RIGHT? PL--

HER HEART'S
KIND OF PURE, REALLY.

FRANKIE GIVES PEOPLE
THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT,

VERY MUCH SEEMS TO BE A PERSON

WHO WOULD TRUST SOMEBODY
AND THEIR KINDNESS.

DON'T DO THIS, FRANKIE.
I - - I LOVE YOU.

OKAY. I LOVE YOU,
AND I KNOW YOU LOVE ME, TOO.

ALL RIGHT, PLEASE.
I SWEAR TO GOD,

FRANKIE, I'LL MAKE IT
UP TO YOU. ALL RIGHT?

YEAH, I GUESS WE'RE GONNA BE
TALKING TO THE COPS THIS AFTERNOON.

DADDY, I'M SORRY.
I'LL CALL YOU, OKAY?

FRANKIE, DON'T.
IT'S OKAY. LET'S GO.

FRANKIE,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

MY MOM AND DAD
DIDN'T LIKE HIM.

FRANKIE,
GET OUT OF THE CAR.

DIDN'T HE HURT YOU
ENOUGH?

I STILL DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE,
YOU KNOW.

I DIDN'T WANT TO LISTEN.

OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS,

THINGS START TO FEEL
NORMAL AGAIN.

DAVID FINDS WORK
ON A DAIRY FARM

AND HE EVEN FINDS A JOB
FOR FRANKIE, TOO.

IT KIND OF
MELLOWED OUT FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

HE GOT THE JOB AT THE DAIRY,
AND THEN I COME IN AS A MILKER.

HEY.

MR. JEAN.

MORNING.
HOWDY, BOSS.

THE BOSS WOULD COME
AND START TALKING TO ME

AS HE WAS TRAINING ME FOR
THE OUTSIDE WORK FOR THE DAIRY.

YOU'RE UP EARLY
THIS MORNING.

I DIDN'T EVEN
NEED AN ALARM CLOCK.

I WAS UP
AT 5:00 A. M. SHARP.

YEAH? WELL, YOU'RE DOING
A GOOD JOB, REALLY GOOD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I APPRECIATE IT.
I'M HAPPY TO BE HERE.

WELL, I'M GLAD
YOU LIKE IT HERE.

AND YOU SURE DO HAVE
A WAY WITH THE COWS.

THEY CALL ME
"THE COW WHISPERER."

- YEAH.
- MOO.

THE FOLLOWING SATURDAY,

FRANKIE RIDES
INTO WORK WITH DAVID,

UNAWARE THAT TROUBLE IS BREWING.

HE STOPPED THE CAR.

THEN JEALOUSY STARTED
POPPING UP AGAIN.

YOU THINK I'M DUMB,
DON'T YOU?

WHAT?

DON'T PLAY INNOCENT
WITH ME, FRANKIE.

DON'T YOU EVEN START.

I SWEAR TO GOD,
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
JEAN!

JEAN? MR...
YES, MR. JEAN.

GOT DOWN ON
YOUR PRETTY LITTLE KNEES

AND GOT YOURSELF
THAT PROMOTION, DIDN'T YOU?

HOW DARE YOU.

I GOT THAT PROMOTION BECAUSE
I'VE BEEN WORKING MY ASS OFF.

YEAH, YEAH.
I'M SURE, YOU SLUT.

HE ACCUSED ME OF HAVING
AN AFFAIR WITH JEAN.

NO, I WASN'T - -
NO, THAT WASN'T GOING ON.

I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE.

WHAT DID YOU SAY?

I WANT OUT.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
I MEAN IT'S OVER, DAVID!

DAVID? DAVI-- DAVID!

HE PULLED HER BY HER HAIR
AND ATTACKED HER.

I HAD A HOT
COFFEE CUP IN MY HAND.

SO I LET HIM
GET ME FAR ENOUGH OUT

TO WHERE I COULD SWING MY ARM,
AND THAT'S WHEN I SWUNG IT.

SCALDED BY HOT COFFEE,
DAVID'S RAGE SURGES.

I'M GONNA KILL YOU.

AN ARGUMENT
BETWEEN FRANKIE COCHRAN

AND HER BOYFRIEND, DAVID GERARD,
HAS JUST TAKEN A VIOLENT TURN.

HE GRABBED A HAMMER,
RAISED IT,

THREATENED TO KILL HER.

GO AHEAD. GO AHEAD.

IF YOU THINK
YOU'RE MAN ENOUGH!

DO IT! GO AHEAD!

SHE SIMPLY CONFRONTED HIM.
SHE STOOD HER GROUND.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT STOPPED HIM.

BUT IF THOSE WORDS
RIGHT THERE STOPPED HIM,

I'M DAMN GLAD.

BUT STILL, THE THREAT WAS THERE.

FRANKIE IMMEDIATELY
CALLS THE POLICE,

BUT SHE'S NOT THE ONLY ONE.

DAVID GERARD
ACTUALLY ALSO CALLED IN

TO REPORT THE INCIDENT.

RARELY DO WE HAVE
A MALE THAT CALLS IN.

SO THIS WAS A BIT
OF AN ODDITY, IF YOU WILL,

THE MALE WANTING TO REPORT
THAT SHE ASSAULTED HIM.

LISTEN, WHATEVER FRANKIE
TOLD YOU, SHE'S LYING, OKAY?

SHE ATTACKED ME.
L-LOOK AT THIS.

NOW, WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT?
BECAUSE SHE'S CRAZY.

OF COURSE, THE INJURIES
THAT SHE HAD SUSTAINED

WHEN HE PULLED HER HAIR LED US

TO BELIEVE THAT DAVID GERARD WAS
RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSAULTING HER.

FRANKIE'S
PRESSING CHARGES.

BUT I JUST TOLD YOU.
SHE ATTACKED ME.

YEAH, YOU CAN TELL THAT
TO A JUDGE, TOO. LET'S GO.

NOW!

I ARRESTED DAVID GERARD
AND TOOK HIM TO THE COUNTY JAIL.

A NO CONTACT ORDER
WAS ISSUED PREVENTING HIM

FROM HAVING CONTACT
WITH FRANKIE COCHRAN.

BUT FRANKIE'S
NOT TAKING ANY MORE CHANCES.

SHE DOES ALL SHE CAN
TO DISTANCE HERSELF FROM DAVID

AND THE LIFE
THEY ONCE SHARED TOGETHER.

I WENT BACK TO THE HOUSE,
CLEARED OUT EVERYTHING I OWNED.

AND THEN I WENT
TO MY AUNT'S HOUSE

AND ASKED IF I COULD STAY
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

SHE DID ALL THE THINGS
THAT YOU WANT TO SEE A WOMAN DO

WHEN SHE'S BEEN THE VICTIM
OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

HELLO?

ANYBODY HOME?

IT WAS JUST
A TEMPORARY FIX FOR ME.

AT LEAST I KNEW I WAS SAFE.

FRANKIE SOON FALLS
INTO A FAMILIAR ROUTINE,

UNAWARE THAT,
JUST TWO DAYS AFTER THE ATTACK,

DAVID IS RELEASED.

HE WAS IN
THE GRAYS HARBOR COUNTY JAIL

FROM THE 13th UNTIL THE 15th.

ON THE 15th,
HE WENT BEFORE A JUDGE

AND THE JUDGE RELEASED HIM,

BUT PLACED A NO-CONTACT ORDER
ON HIM.

BUT HE HAS A HISTORY
OF VIOLATING THE LAW.

FIND EVERYTHING
YOU NEEDED?

I DID, THANKS.
GOOD. WOULD YOU LIKE A BAG?

NO, THANKS.
OKAY.

I REMEMBER, I FELT
LIKE I WAS BEING WATCHED.

HAVE A GOOD DAY.
THANKS, YOU TOO.

BUT I COULDN'T SEE NOTHING.

I DIDN'T KNOW THAT
HE HAD BEEN THERE.

BUT THE MORE
TIME GOES ON, THE MORE

FRANKIE BEGINS TO REALIZE
THAT DAVID COULD BE ANYWHERE.

WHO'S THERE?!

IT'S ME, LLOYD - -
YOUR NEIGHBOR.

YOU'RE NOT DEBBIE.

NO. I'M FRANKIE,
HER NIECE.

IS YOUR UNCLE HOME?

NO, HE AND MY AUNT
WENT TO TOWN TO RUN ERRANDS.

CAN I HELP YOU?

I WAS OUT WALKING MY DOGS
A COUPLE HOURS AGO,

AND I SAW A GUY PULLED OVER,
SITTING IN HIS CAR,

RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR PROPERTY.
WHAT?

I DIDN'T THINK ANYTHING
OF IT AT THE TIME.

BUT ON THE WAY BACK,
I COULD SEE UP THE DRIVEWAY.

HE WAS LOOKING
IN YOUR WINDOW.

WHAT DID HE LOOK LIKE?

DIDN'T SEE HIM
UP CLOSE,

BUT NO BEARD,
NO GLASSES.

HE WAS WEARING
A BASEBALL CAP, THOUGH.

I DON'T WANT TO WORRY YOU
OR ANYTHING.

I JUST THOUGHT
Y'ALL SHOULD KNOW.

THANK YOU. THANKS.

I WAS SCARED.

BUT, YOU KNOW,
THE DAIRY WAS MY SAFE PLACE.

I FELT SAFER AT THAT DAIRY
THAN ANYWHERE. ANYWHERE.

BUT JUST FOUR DAYS
AFTER THE ATTACK,

FRANKIE'S HIT WITH AN UNEXPECTED
CHANGE IN HER ROUTINE.

HEY, FRANKIE.

MR. JEAN.

TERRY CALLED IN SICK.

I DON'T HAVE ANYBODY
TO TAKE THE NIGHT SHIFT.

CAN YOU STAY
A LITTLE LATER?

I CAN COME
AND REPLACE YOU LATER ON.

SURE.

THANKS.

YOU'RE A GODSEND.
I OWE YOU ONE.

NO, YOU DON'T.
HA.

NEED A HAND WITH THAT?

I GOT IT.

AFTER SHE HAD ALREADY WORKED
ONE SHIFT AT THE DAIRY,

SHE GOT ASKED TO WORK
AN EVENING SHIFT.

I WAS FILLING IN
FOR THE NIGHT MILKER.

OTHERWISE, I WOULDN'T
HAVE EVEN BEEN THERE.

THAT NIGHT WAS REALLY WEIRD.

MY COWS WERE ACTING UP
REALLY BAD.

I THOUGHT, "MAN, I FEEL WEIRD,
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS."

ABOUT 30 MILES
OUTSIDE OF ABERDEEN,

IT'S A QUIET NIGHT
AT THE DAIRY FARM - -

THAT IS, UNTIL 32-YEAR-OLD
FRANKIE COCHRAN

REALIZES SHE'S GOT COMPANY.

THE ATTACK WAS SUDDEN.
IT WAS VICIOUS.

IT WAS DESIGNED
TO CATCH HER BY SURPRISE.

FRANKIE HAD NO WARNING.

HE WAS STANDING THERE
WITH A HAMMER IN HIS HAND.

THERE WAS NOTHING.
HE WAS AS COLD AS ICE.

I FELT IT IN MY HEAD,
THREE TIMES.

WELL, I COULDN'T DO NOTHING.

SHE WAS STRUCK
WITH A CLAW HAMMER,

SHE WAS STABBED IN THE NECK
WITH A POCKET KNIFE,

AND SHE WAS CHOKED.

THAT HAMMER GOT TURNED,

AND THE CLAW OF THE HAMMER
STRUCK HER IN THE NECK.

BUT IT'S NOT OVER YET.
FRANKIE IS A FIGHTER.

AND SHE KNOWS THERE'S STILL
ONE WAY OUT OF THIS ALIVE.

I REMEMBER THINKING,
"FRANKIE,

FAKE YOUR DEATH RIGHT NOW."

AND I SHALLOWED MY BREATHING

SO THAT HE COULDN'T SEE ME
BREATHING AND STAYED THERE.

THAT EVENING, AROUND 10:00 P. M.,
HER EMPLOYER CAME OUT.

GOD.

HE HAD SPECIFIED
HE WANTED THE WATER

TURNED ON FOR THE CATTLE.

WHAT THE HELL?

FRANKIE'S
A VERY RELIABLE WORKER.

AND THIS CONCERNED HIM,
SO HE WENT LOOKING FOR HER.

FRANKIE?

FRANKIE, YOU IN THERE?

PLEASE.

FRANKIE?

MY GOD.

FRANKIE? FRANKIE?

FRANKIE,
CAN YOU HEAR ME?

I'M GONNA GO GET HELP.
JUST WAIT - - HANG IN THERE.

FRANKIE WAS LYING
THERE, HORRIBLY INJURED.

SHE WAS ABLE TO SPEAK
A LITTLE BIT,

BUT NOT MUCH.

HE IMMEDIATELY CALLED 911.

WHEN FIRST RESPONDERS
ARRIVE ON THE SCENE,

FRANKIE USES EVERY BREATH
SHE CAN MUSTER

TO BE SURE THEY KNOW
HER ATTACKER'S NAME.

DAVID.

DAVID WHO?

DAVID... GERARD HIT ME.

SHE HAD MULTIPLE
SERIOUS FRACTURES TO HER SKULL.

SHE HAD A FRACTURE
ON HER ARM

AND A FRACTURE
ON HER RIGHT HAND.

THE LIKELIHOOD
OF HER SURVIVAL WAS VERY LOW.

OFFICERS IMMEDIATELY
ISSUE A SEARCH FOR HER ATTACKER,

DAVID GERARD.

AND HOURS LATER,
A HIT COMES IN.

OF COURSE, THEY
ALREADY HAD THE INFORMATION

ON HIS VEHICLE FROM THE ARREST

THAT I HAD
FOUR DAYS PRIOR TO THIS.

AND IT WASN'T TOO LONG AFTER
THE CALL INITIALLY CAME OUT

THAT OUR PATROL DEPUTIES
LOCATED HIM.

I'LL TAKE
A COUPLE SCRATCH-OFFS.

FEELING LUCKY TONIGHT?

WE MAKE OUR OWN LUCK,
DON'T WE?

YES, WE DO.

DAVID.
LET'S GO, MAN.

WHAT'S - -
WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?

I'M SURE YOU HAVE
SOME KIND OF AN IDEA.

COME ON.

WE FILED THE INITIAL CHARGES
OF ATTEMPTED FIRST-DEGREE MURDER

WITH THE THOUGHT
THAT WE WERE GONNA BE FILING

FIRST-DEGREE
MURDER CHARGES LATER.

BUT FRANKIE SURPRISED EVERYONE,
INCLUDING THE DOCTORS.

IF YOU WERE GONNA TRY TO LIST
ALL THE POSSIBLE INJURIES

YOU COULD DO TO SOMEONE,
FRANKIE HAD THEM.

AND YET, SHE SURVIVED.

WE CALL IT "THE MIRACULOUS
MURDER CASE" IN MY OFFICE,

'CAUSE IT WAS THE CASE
THAT WASN'T A MURDER.

BUT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

PROSECUTORS
DO EVERYTHING IN THEIR POWER

TO BE SURE DAVID GERARD

IS PUNISHED TO THE FULL EXTENT
OF THE LAW.

DAVID GERARD GOT WHAT'S
CALLED AN EXCEPTIONAL SENTENCE

FOR ATTEMPTED
FIRST-DEGREE MURDER.

WE OUTLINED THE FACTS
OF THE CASE,

AND THOSE GROUNDS CONSTITUTED
EXCEPTIONAL SENTENCES

THAT THE COURT USED
TO INCREASE THE SENTENCE

TO 444 MONTHS - - 37 YEARS.

POLICE HAVE ALSO
GONE ON TO DISCOVER

A POSSIBLE CONNECTION

BETWEEN DAVID GERARD
AND OTHER CRIMES.

BACK IN 1995,

AN ESTRANGED GIRLFRIEND
OF DAVID GERARD

BY THE NAME
OF PATTY RODRIGUEZ DIED

IN A HOUSE FIRE ALONG
WITH HER TWO SONS

AND PATTY'S MOTHER, PATRICIA.

AT THE TIME,
IT WAS DEEMED TO BE A FIRE

ACCIDENTLY CAUSED
BY A WOOD STOVE.

HOWEVER, WHEN INVESTIGATORS
WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT IT,

THEY FOUND A NUMBER OF WITNESSES

WHO SAID THAT THEY'D HEARD
DAVID GERARD AND PATTY RODRIGUEZ

ARGUING AT A BAR THE SAME NIGHT
THAT SHE WAS KILLED IN THE FIRE.

AT THIS POINT, HE IS
A STRONG PERSON OF INTEREST

WITH RESPECT
TO THAT DEATH INVESTIGATION,

BUT NO CHARGES
HAVE YET BEEN FILED.

IT'S NOW BEEN
NEARLY TWO DECADES

SINCE FRANKIE'S TRAGEDY.

AND EVERY DAY,
SHE GETS STRONGER.

THEY WERE TELLING ME
THAT I'D NEVER WALK AGAIN

AND NEVER HAVE A LIFE AGAIN.

AND I'M LIKE,
"WHAT? WAIT A MINUTE."

READY? OKAY.

OKAY.

SHE'S INCREDIBLY TOUGH,
AND SHE IS A SURVIVOR.

SHE'S JUST GOT THAT KIND OF
STRONG WILL INSIDE OF HER

THAT SHE WANTED TO SURVIVE.

IT'S ALL STILL
REALLY HARD FOR ME.

IT'S CHANGED MY ENTIRE LIFE.

BUT I DON'T WANT HIM
TO HURT ANOTHER WOMAN.

IF IT STOPS HIM,
I'D GO THROUGH IT AGAIN.
