So, you and Michael went on a

                       SHARON
Well, Melissa's expensive makeup
worked the concealer, covered my
bruise. But it couldn't cover the
swelling around my eye. Before I
left the ladies room, I put on my
sunglasses. Melissa wanted me to
act surprised, about seeing
Michael in the lobby, and I did. I
knew of a restaurant in walking
distance from my job, and we
walked, and talked on the way. I
felt a strong connection to him, I
can't explain it. We arrived at
the restaurant, right at the start
of the lunchtime rush. We were
seated, and we ordered lunch.We
talked and talked, about our
lives, our childhood,and where we
grew up. I was still wearing my
sunglasses, during our
conversation, he asked me to take
them off, he wanted to see my

What did you do?
                                                            
                       SHARON
At first, I hesitated but, he
insisted. So, I took off my
sunglasses. I saw his face change.
I could see the anger in his eyes.

He asked me, did Bobby do
this to you? And, I said yes. He
touched my hand, and he said that
he was sorry.

Just at that moment ,our
food had arrived. So we ate
quietly. We did not speak about my
eye again. So after we ate, we
walked back to my job, and we
said, our goodbyes to each other.
He hailed a cab, and I watched him
leave.
                                                            
                       CAVILLI
Did he go back to Seattle?
                                                            
                       SHARON
I thought that he was gone, but, I
can remember this like it happened
yesterday.I was trying to call
Bobby that night, he normally
would get home around 4 P.M from
work.
It was going on 8 O'clock,he
wasn't picking up his cell phone.


My doorbell rang, I thought it was
Bobby. I was thinking, he must
have lost his keys. So I buzzed
him in, and I unlocked my front
door.

Do you know if Michael, had
anything to do with the attack on
Bobby?

no, but today, I just don't know.

homicide. I got burned out, and
tired, I needed a change.
                                                            
                       ZANDER

                       ZANDER
Do you know if Micheal Russell has
any family in the area?
                                                            
                       JEFF
No,he told me, he had some family
out east. I think, he said Boston.
He has a cousin living out there.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
Do you know if he was dating
anyone?
                                                            
                       JEFF
He did mention, that he had signed
up with a couple of online dating
services. And, he met a few
people, and he went out on some
dates, but, I don't think he was
involved in anything serious.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
Do you have Michael Russell's
employment file?
                                                            
                       JEFF
Right here. I looked at the file.
nothing is in there.
                                                            
Jeff Evans hands the file to Agent Zander.
Agent Zander begins to look at the file.
                                                            
                       JEFF
I was with him on his last weekend
here in Seattle, I helped him
move. He moved some of his
belongings in a storage facility,
about three miles from here. You
will need a warrant, and after you
read his employment file, I'm
gonna need it back. I'm sorry,
but, without a court order, you
can't have his file.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
We know, but thanks for letting me
take a look. You're right this
file has nothing. The address
listed as his residence, is it
accurate?
                                                            

60.

                       JEFF
Yes,he lived in a very nice
building complex about twenty
minutes away from here. I used to
visit him sometimes. We would
watch football games on Sundays. I
do know that the apartment he
stayed in has tenants in it.
                                                            
                       BARRY
How do you know that?
                                                            
                       JEFF
I live in the building complex. Me
and Michael, we were neighbors.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Do you feel that you knew him
pretty well?
                                                            
                       JEFF
Yes and no, he was sometimes very
quiet. He was a very private
person, I don't recall ever seeing
him loose his temper. He was
always cool and calm, even with
our patients, nothing, seemed to
rattle him.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
Can you recall anything that
happened out of the ordinary,after
he left?
                                                            
                       JEFF
Well, not really, but, the only
thing that I can remember. After
Michael left, about a month later,
we had a nurse and two patients
disappear.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
Are they still missing?
                                                            
                       JEFF
Yes, they are still missing. I
called some friends of mine on the
job. They said that the case has
gone cold, there are no leads.
                                                            
                       BARRY
What is the name of the missing
nurse?
                                                            

61.

                       JEFF
Her name is Glenda Reynolds. She
worked the overnight shift. One
night,she came to work, clocked in
but never clocked out. She left
sometime during her shift. We
believe that somehow the two
patients that disappeared,that
night, may be responsible for
Glenda Reynolds disappearance. The
next morning, Glenda Reynolds
showed up at her bank, and closed
her bank account. She had over
seventeen thousand dollars in her
account. She was saving up to buy
a house. After that day,she just
vanished. I have her picture on
the wall behind you.
                                                            
Barry gets up from his seat, and walks over to the wall, to
look at a photo of Glenda Reynolds. As he looks over the
other photos on the wall, he sees the photo of someone he
recognizes.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Oh shit!!This girl, she is at the
station. Agent Zander...
                                                            
Agent Zander gets up from his seat, and walks over to see
the photo of the girl.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
That's Sharon Hall.
                                                            
                       JEFF
No,that's Carmen Carpenter. She is
one of the patients that went
missing. If she, is in your town
Amber Davis is with her. These two
young women are very dangerous.
Carmen Carpenter has been
institutionalized, since the age
of 12.
                                                            
                       BARRY
Agent Zander call Agent Cavilli.
                                                            
                       ZANDER
I'm on it.
                                                            
Agent Zander reaches inside his jacket pocket and pulls out
his cell phone. He speed dials agent Cavilli.
                                                            

62.

Jeff Evans picks up the phone on his desk, he dials a three
digit extension.
                                                            
                       JEFF
Pat, this is Jeff, I need
Dr.Rivera. I don't care if she is
in a meeting. This is an
emergency, I need her to come to
my office, right away!
                                                            
                       ZANDER
Come on. Pick up.
                                                            
 
EXT. 1496 WOOD STREET. - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
Agent Cavilli has arrived at the home, that Michael Russell
shared with Sharon Hall. He exits an unmarked police
cruiser, but, he leaves his cell phone on the passenger seat
of the car, the phone begins to ring. He rushes over to meet
with the state police forensic team.
                                                            
                       CAVILLI
Hello, I'm Agent
Cavilli. I'm looking for
Sargent Hoyte.
                                                            
                       HOYTE
Right here.Agent Cavilli.I'm
Sargent Hoyte.
                                                            
The two men shake hands, Agent Cavilli walks over to the
front porch of the house, Sargent Hoyte follows him. They
both walk up to the top of the stairs, and turn around, to
face the state forensic team.
                                                            
                       HOYTE
Alright, ladies and gentleman
gather around. Agent Cavilli has
called us here, and this is his
investigation, so listen up.
                                                            
                       CAVILLI
First, I want to thank you for
coming,this is the home of Michael
Russell. He shared this home with
his fiance, but, I believe that he
may have kidnapped his victims,
and brought them here. We need to
focus on the basement, for any
DNA, that his victims may have
left behind. But, we can't rule
out the rest of the house. So I
hope, someone brought some coffee,
            (MORE)

63.

                       CAVILLI (cont'd)
because it's going to be a long
afternoon and evening. Lets get
started, I have the keys, follow
me!
                                                            
Agent Cavilli turns around, and pulls out the keys,and walks
to the front door of the house. He puts the key into the
lock and opens the door.
                                                            
 
INT. DETECTIVE BARRY'S HOME - MOMENTS LATER
                                                            
The door opens, and Diane Barry enters, she is carrying her
purse, a bag of groceries, and talking on her cell phone.
She walks to the vestibule and continues her conversation.
                                                            
                       DIANE
Girl, this has been one of the
craziest days at that hospital.
Yes, I know that poor girl, she
has been through hell. Is that
Clint, tell him I said hi, yeah,
me to. Well, let me get in here
and get dinner started. Yeah,I
have to go and pick up my big head
brother, from football practice in
about an hour. So I will call you
later, OK, bye.
                                                            
Diane Barry ends her phone call, but, she feels a presence
behind her. Before she can turn around, she is grabbed from
the back! She drops her phone, her purse and the bag of
groceries, all fall to the floor! A large butcher knife is
placed on her throat!!
                                                            
                       SHARON
Shhh... Don't scream, if you do, I
will cut your fucking throat!!
