to

throw

small

00:47
She

invited

few
00:48
old
00:48
friends,

Michael

,

and

his

Anne

Richardson.
00:54
Vicky's
00:54
ex
00:55
partner's
00:55
daughter.
00:56
Robin
00:56
little
00:56
was
00:56
also
00:57
there
00:57
and
00:57
she
00:58
arrived
00:58
with
00:58
her
00:58
boyfriend.
00:59
Dale
00:59
Walker.
01:00
The
01:00
party
01:01
was
01:01
in
01:01
full
01:01
swing
01:02
and
01:02
the
01:02
group
01:02
were
01:02
drinking
01:03
beer
01:03
and
01:03
spirits.
01:04
Some
01:04

also
01:05
using

recreational
01:06
drugs.
01:07
Robin
01:07
noticed

that

a
01:08
man
01:08
sitting
01:09
in
01:09
the
01:09
corner
01:09
was
01:09
acting
01:10
strangely.
01:11
She
01:11
asked
01:12
Vicki
01:12
for
01:12
his
01:12
name
01:13
and
01:13

told

01:14
was
01:15
Steven
01:15
Shaw
01:16
later.
01:16
Shaw
01:17
became
01:17
very
01:17
aggressive
01:18
and
01:18
caused
01:18
an
01:19
argument,
01:20
his
01:20
sister,
01:21
and
01:21
decided
01:21
to
01:21
leave.
01:22
And
01:22
although
01:23
Shel
01:23
wanted
01:23
to
01:23
stay,
01:24
he
01:24
was
01:24
persuaded
01:25
to
01:25
make
01:25
sure
01:26
that
01:26
his
01:26
sister
01:26
got
01:26
home
01:27
safely,
01:28
but
01:28
he
01:28
kept
01:29
returning
01:29
to
01:29
the
01:29
house.
01:31
On
01:31
the
01:31
first
01:32
occasion,
01:32
he
01:32
went
01:32
back
01:33
to
01:33
retrieve
01:33
some
01:33
money
01:34
that
01:34
assisted
01:35
left
01:35
on
01:35
the
01:35
second.
01:36
He
01:36
used
01:36
an
01:36
excuse
01:37
of
01:37
retrieving
01:37
some
01:38
alcohol
01:40
that's
01:40
about

01:45
If
01:45
they
01:45
could
01:45
stay
01:45
over

and

get
01:49
to
01:50
sleep
01:50
straight
01:50

01:51
but
01:51
Robin
01:51
laid
01:51
awake
01:52
for
01:52
some
01:52
time.
01:54
She
01:54
couldn't
01:54
get
01:54
past
01:54
that
01:55
feeling,
01:55
that
01:55
there
01:56
was
01:56
someone
01:56
else
01:56
in
01:56
the
01:56
room
01:57
with

Suddenly

was

out

06:50
Ron

believed

that

06:57
sadly
06:58
many
06:58
years
06:58
after
06:59
the
06:59

07:00
Dan
07:00
Lafferty's
07:00
twisted

beliefs
07:01
led
07:02
to

another

07:04
Fast-forward
07:04
to

07:04

about

07:19
became

with

them
07:20
.
07:21
Eventually
07:22
Laverty
07:22
Benjamin
07:22
and
07:23
Christie
07:23
would
07:23

the

07:44
walked

into

the

07:46
with
07:46
his

07:48
There
07:48
was
07:48
no

07:49
The

there'd

07:58
He
07:58
decided
07:58
to
07:58
go
07:59
around
07:59
with
07:59
his
07:59
grandmother
08:00
to
08:00
see
08:00

there
08:00
was

Horrified

08:08
They

The

08:19
It

08:25
Sadly,
08:25
it
08:25
was
08:25
obvious
08:26
that
08:26
he
08:26
was
08:27
aware
08:27
that
08:27
something
08:28
was
08:28
going

happen

be

the

contact
08:39

08:40
family
08:40

08:41
Ben
08:41
even
08:42
stopped
08:42
going
08:42
to
08:42
work
08:43
when
08:43
they
08:44
were
08:44
in
08:44
contact
08:44
with
08:44
their
08:45
family.
08:45
The
08:46
couple
08:46
talked
08:46
about
08:46
wanting
08:47
to
08:47
escape
08:47
the
08:48
groan
08:48
evil
08:48
of
08:48
the
08:48
world.
08:49
It
08:49
was
08:49
assumed
08:50
they
08:50
wanted
08:50
to
08:50
move
08:51
away
08:51
to
08:51
somewhere
08:51
more
08:52
rural
08:52
and
08:52
live
08:52
off
08:53
grid.
08:54
Police
08:54
determined
08:55
that
08:55
Benjamin
08:56
Christi
08:56
murdered
08:56
their
08:56
two
08:56
young
08:57
children
08:57
before
08:58
committing
08:58
suicide.
08:59
It
09:00
is
09:00
not
09:00
known
09:00
whether
09:00
Benson
09:01
was
09:01
forced
09:01
to
09:01
take
09:02
the
09:02
cocktail
09:02
of
09:02
lethal
09:03
drugs
09:03
or
09:03
did
09:04
so
09:04
himself.
09:05
Once
09:05
he
09:05
realized
09:06
that
09:06
the
09:06
rest
09:06
of
09:06
his
09:06
family
09:07
were
09:07
dead
09:07
.
09:08
Don
09:08
Lafferty
09:09
believes
09:09
that
09:10
it
09:10
was
09:10
his
09:10
philosophy
09:11
of
09:11
how
09:11
on
09:11
earth
09:12
that
09:12
led
09:12
to
09:12
the
09:12
strikes
09:13
murder
09:13
suicides.
09:14
He
09:15
said,
09:15
my
09:15
insanity
09:16
messes
09:16
with
09:16
people's
09:17
lives.
09:18
I'll
09:18
miss
09:18
them,
09:18
but
09:18
I'm
09:18
happy
09:19
for
09:19
them.
09:19
I
09:20
believe
09:20
they
09:20
are
09:20
in
09:20
paradise.
09:21
Now,
09:22
both
09:22
Benjamin
09:23
and
09:24
Christie
09:24
had
09:24
been
09:24
given
09:24
a
09:24
court
09:25
ordering
09:25
drug
09:26
treatment.
09:26
Although
09:27
children's
09:27
services
09:28
were
09:28
not
09:28
involved
09:28
with
09:28
the
09:28
family.
09:31
Christy
09:31
had
09:31
been
09:31
taking
09:31
methadone
09:32
for
09:32
heroin
09:33
addiction
09:33
at
09:33
the
09:33
time
09:33
of
09:34
the
09:34
deaths,
09:35
both
09:35
Benjamin
09:35
and
09:36
Christie
09:36
were
09:36
known
09:36
to
09:37
suffer
09:37
from
09:38
long-term
09:38
mental
09:38
illness
09:38
and
09:39
drug
09:39
addictions.

his

motorcycle
09:50
as
09:50
fast
09:51
as
09:51
he
09:51
could.
09:52
He
09:52
would
09:52
tear
09:53
around
09:53
the
09:53
roads
09:53
of
09:53
his
09:53
French
09:54

09:54
His
09:55
mother
09:55
worried
09:55
about
09:56
angel
09:56
riding
09:56
around
09:56
at
09:57
such
09:57
high

speeds
09:58
and
09:58
without
09:58
a
09:58

09:59
And
09:59
she
09:59
would
09:59
often
10:00
lecture
10:00
him
10:00
about
10:01
the
10:01
dangers,
10:02
but
10:02
angel
10:02
was
10:02
determined
10:03
to
10:03
have
10:03
his
10:03
freedom.
10:05
Then
10:05
on
10:05
the
10:05

10:05
of
10:05

10:06

10:07
1937
10:09
Hayes
10:09
had
10:09
a
10:09
horrific
10:09
motorcycle
10:10
crash
10:11
at
10:11
the
10:11
age
10:11
of
10:11
just
10:11
18.
10:13
He
10:13
lost
10:13
control
10:13
of
10:14
the
10:14
motorcycle
10:15
and
10:15
was
10:15
thrown
10:15
headfirst
10:16
into
10:16
a
10:16
brick
10:16

10:17
He
10:17
was
10:17
pronounced
10:18
dead
10:18
at
10:18
the
10:18
scene.
10:19
His
10:19
injuries
10:19
to
10:19
his
10:20
face
10:20
was
10:20
so
10:20
horrific
10:21
that
10:21
his
10:21
parents
10:21
were
10:21
not
10:22
allowed
10:22
to

10:22
his
10:22

10:24
His
10:24
funeral
10:24
was
10:24
held
10:25
three
10:25
days
10:25
later
10:26
and
10:26
he
10:26
was
10:26
interred
10:27
at
10:27
the
10:27
village
10:27
cemetery
10:29
just
10:29
days
10:29
before
10:29
the
10:29
accident
10:30
Angel's
10:30
parents
10:31
had
10:31
taken
10:31
out
10:31
a
10:31
large
10:32
life
10:32
insurance
10:32
policy
10:33
for
10:33
angel
10:34
and
10:34
a
10:34
couple
10:34
of
10:34
days
10:35
after
10:35
the
10:35
funeral,
10:36
they
10:36
filed
10:36
the
10:36
claim.
10:38
This
10:38
sent
10:38
alarm
10:38
bells
10:39
ringing
10:39
at
10:39
the
10:39
insurance
10:40
company,
10:41
who
10:41
was
10:41
sure
10:42
that
10:42
there
10:42
was
10:42
something
10:42
fortunate
10:43
going
10:43
on.
10:44
The
10:44
insurance
10:45
investigators
10:46
got
10:46
in
10:46
contact
10:47
with
10:47
the
10:47
local
10:47
medical
10:48
examiners
10:48
office
10:48
to
10:48
find
10:49
out
10:49
if
10:49
anything
10:50
unusual
10:50
happening
10:50
found
10:51
during
10:52
Angel's
10:52
autopsy.
10:53
They
10:53
were
10:54
told
10:54
that
10:54
Angel's
10:55
parents
10:55
had
10:55
actually
10:56
refused
10:56
permission
10:56
for
10:57
a
10:57
post-mortem
10:58
and
10:58
chose
10:58
to
10:59
have
10:59
their
10:59
son
10:59
buried
10:59
quickly
11:00
in
11:00
a
11:00
closed
11:01
casket.
11:03
The
11:03
investigators
11:04
insistent
11:04
that
11:05
Angel's
11:05
body
11:05
had
11:06
to
11:06
be
11:06
examined
11:06
and
11:07
reexamined
11:07
to
11:08
rule
11:08
out
11:08
the
11:08
possibility
11:09
of
11:09
foul
11:09
play.
11:10
The
11:10
coffin
11:11
was
11:11
an
11:11
earth
11:11
and
11:12
returned
11:12
to
11:12
the
11:12
office
11:13
of
11:13
the
11:13
medical
11:13
examiner.
11:15
They
11:15
were
11:15
shocked
11:15
to
11:15
find
11:16
that
11:16
Angel's
11:16
body
11:17
was
11:17
warm
11:17
to
11:17
the
11:17
touch.
11:18
He
11:18
had
11:18
a
11:19
weak
11:19
poles
11:19
and
11:19
his
11:19
breathing
11:20
was
11:20
shallow,
11:21
but
11:21
he
11:21
was
11:21
definitely
11:21
alive.
11:23
It
11:23
was
11:23
agreed
11:24
that
11:24
his
11:24
skull
11:24
had
11:25
been
11:25
fractured
11:25
during
11:25
the
11:26
accident.
11:26
And
11:27
this
11:27
had
11:27
put
11:27
his
11:27
body
11:28
into
11:28
a
11:28
deep
11:28
coma.
11:29
This
11:29
had
11:30
slowed
11:30
down,
11:31
Angel's
11:31
need
11:31
for
11:31
oxygen,
11:32
allowing
11:32
him
11:32
to
11:32
stay
11:32
alive
11:33
in
11:33
the
11:33
coffin
11:33
for
11:34
three
11:34
days.
11:36
Without
11:36
the
11:36
doubt
11:37
survey
11:37
suspicious
11:37
insurance
11:38
investigator
11:39
angel
11:40
would
11:40
have
11:40
eventually
11:40
died
11:41
in
11:41
the
11:41
coffin,
11:42
perhaps
11:43
even
11:43
woken
11:43
up
11:44
before
11:44
he
11:44
did.
11:44
So
11:46
it
11:46
seems
11:47
that
11:47
the
11:47
taking
11:47
act
11:47
to
11:47
the
11:47
insurance
11:48
policy
11:48
just
11:48
before
11:49
Angel's
11:49
death
11:50
was
11:50
a
11:50
complete
11:50
coincidence.
11:52
Angel
11:52
went
11:52
on
11:52
to
11:53
a
11:53
local
11:53
celebrity.
11:54
He
11:54
was
11:54
an
11:55
acentric
11:55
known
11:55
as
11:55
a
11:56
poet
11:56
and
11:56
an
11:56
inventor.
11:58
People
11:58
would
11:58
travel
11:58
from
11:59
all
11:59
over
11:59
France
11:59
to
11:59
ask
12:00
him
12:00
about
12:00
his
12:00
experience.
12:01
And
12:01
he
12:02
even
12:02
appeared
12:02
on
12:02
French
12:02
TV
12:03
shows
12:04
in
12:04
the
12:04
1950s,
12:05
angel
12:06
invented
12:06
an
12:06
electric
12:07
security
12:07
coffin
12:08
that
12:08
would
12:08
prevent
12:09
other
12:09
people
12:09
from
12:10
being
12:10
buried
12:10
prematurely.
12:12
The
12:12
coffin
12:12
had
12:12
its
12:12
own
12:13
oxygen
12:13
supply,
12:14
a
12:14
food
12:14
cabinet
12:14
and
12:15
a
12:15
chemical
12:15
toilet.
12:17
There
12:17
was
12:17
also
12:17
a
12:18
stock
12:18
of
12:18
books
12:19
and
12:19
a
12:19
radio
12:19
to
12:19
prevent
12:20
boredom
12:21
while
12:21
the
12:21
unlucky
12:21

12:22

devastated,
12:53
although
12:53
she
12:53
missed
12:54

12:54
I
12:54

his

12:56
More,

12:58
a
12:58
father.
12:59
So
12:59
she
12:59
began
13:00
seeing
13:00
a
13:00
local
13:00
man
13:01
named
13:01
John
13:02
Widy
13:04
Mort
13:04
and
13:04
John
13:04
were
13:04
married
13:05
and
13:05
they
13:05
moved
13:05
into
13:06
a
13:06
lodging
13:06
house
13:06
at
13:06
number
13:07
12
13:07
Victoria
13:08
street,
13:08
which
13:08
they
13:09
shared
13:09
with
13:09
a
13:09
65
13:10
year
13:10
old
13:10
landlady.
13:11
Ms
13:11
.
13:12
Very
13:13
sadly
13:13
,
13:13
it
13:13
turned
13:14
out
13:14
that
13:14
John
13:15
was
13:15
an
13:15
alcoholic.
13:16
He
13:16
would
13:16
spend
13:16
a
13:16
lot
13:17
of
13:17
time
13:17
in
13:17
the
13:17
nearby
13:18
Poplar
13:18
working
13:19
men's
13:19
club
13:19
before
13:20
staggering
13:20
home,
13:21
where
13:22
he
13:22
would
13:22
be
13:22
both
13:22
verbally
13:23
and
13:23
physically
13:23
abusive
13:24
to
13:24
mold
13:24
.
13:25
Some
13:25
days
13:26
she
13:26
would
13:26
arrive
13:26
at
13:26
the
13:26
cotton
13:27
mill
13:27
where
13:27
she
13:27
worked
13:28
with
13:28
a
13:28
black
13:29
eye
13:29
at
13:30
the
13:30
time
13:30
she
13:30
could
13:30
hardly
13:31
stand
13:31
because
13:31
he
13:32
had
13:32
beaten
13:32
her
13:32
so
13:32
badly.
13:34
Ms
13:34
.
13:35
Hornby
13:35
was
13:35
very
13:35
upset
13:36
by
13:36
this
13:36
and
13:36
told
13:37
more
13:37
that
13:37
she
13:37
would
13:37
be
13:37
happy
13:38
to
13:38
throw
13:38
John
13:38
out
13:39
if
13:39
it
13:39
would
13:39
help
13:40
more
13:40
degreed.
13:41
And
13:41
when
13:41
he
13:41
returned
13:42
home
13:42
that
13:42
morning,
13:43
Jonathan
13:43
,
13:43
his
13:43
suitcase
13:44
packed
13:44
and
13:44
waiting
13:44
for
13:45
him
13:46
before
13:46
he
13:46
left.
13:47
He
13:47
pointed
13:47
at
13:47
Agnes
13:48
and
13:48
threatened
13:48
mode.
13:49
Menacingly
13:50
saying,
13:50
I'll
13:50
get
13:51
back
13:51
at
13:51
you
13:51
through
13:51
her
13:53
eye
13:53
.
13:53
Clinton
13:53
police
13:54
were
13:54
informed
13:54
of
13:54
the
13:54
threat
13:56
and
13:56
they
13:56
kept
13:56
John
13:56
under
13:56
investigation
13:57
for
13:57
the
13:57
next
13:58
few
13:58
days,
13:59
John
13:59
continued
14:00
to
14:00
drink
14:00
a
14:00
good
14:00
deal,
14:01
but
14:01
he
14:01
never
14:01
tried
14:01
to
14:02
make
14:02
contact
14:02
with
14:02
mortal
14:03
Agnes.
14:04
So
14:04
this
14:04
valence
14:04
was
14:05
called
14:05
off.
14:07
It
14:07
was
14:07
then
14:07
that
14:07
John
14:08
went
14:08
to
14:08
Agnes
14:08
his
14:08
school.
14:09
He
14:09
saw
14:10
her
14:10
in
14:10
the
14:10
playground
14:11
and
14:11
grabbed
14:11
your
14:12
hand,
14:12
tying
14:12
her
14:13
that
14:13
they
14:13
were
14:13
going
14:13
home
14:13
to
14:14
see
14:14
your
14:14
mother
14:14
at
14:14
Victoria
14:15
street.
14:16
The
14:17
headmistress
14:17
miss
14:18
westwell
14:18
rushed
14:19
over
14:19
to
14:19
find
14:19
out
14:19
what
14:20
was
14:20
happening.
14:21
But
14:21
John
14:21
tricked
14:21
her
14:21
with
14:22
the
14:22
forged
14:22
letter.
14:23
The
14:23
letter
14:24
said
14:24
that
14:24
the
14:24
family
14:25
would
14:25
go
14:25
into
14:25
Richton
14:26
on
14:26
the
14:26
train.
14:27
So
14:27
Agnes
14:27
was
14:27
needed
14:28
at
14
