The rental house exceeded my expectations. You may think $400 per month rent for a three bedroom, two bath, furnished house four miles from a state university suspicious, but having grown up in the foothills, I knew how rent in the mountains worked. Four-hundred dollars...

Iโ€™m posting this here, as well as on a few other forums, because Iโ€™m hoping that some tech-savvy user among you will be able to explain what happened on my iPhone a couple of nights ago. Maybe you'll know where it came from? Maybe one...

The tall grandfather clock bellowed four times through the two-story house, as the county school bus pulled off from the driveway. A young girl named Jenna McLure sat on the carpeted floor of the second level, playing in solitude with each of her stuffed toys...

Note: Contains minor gore; please consider this alongside the plot setup (evident within the first sentence) as this may be a story some of you will wish to avoid. Peter Helford hadnโ€™t exactly planned on murdering a child. But when money came and knocked on his...

โ€œOkay Father, we need you to cooperate with us here. If youโ€™re honest from the beginning, things will be a lot better for you.โ€ Officer Green sipped his coffee, a little too weak for this time of the night. Things like this didnโ€™t happen very...
