    Smothered - Delmont, Pennsylvania
    On this episode of The Dead Files, retired NYPD homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi and physical medium Amy Allan investigate disturbing paranormal activity targeting children in a third generation family home in Delmont, Pennsylvania. The clients, Melissa, her husband Jimmy, and their young children claim they're living through hell. Even though they are third generation owners of their home, they're the first to experience the violent paranormal activity on the property. Some of their experiences include strange sounds, mysterious illnesses, unexplained physical assaults, and terrifying apparitions. The activity has gotten so relentless, Melissa and their three children sleep huddled together in the living room out of fear. Desperate to protect their children and somehow live a normal life, they reached out to Steve and Amy for help. During their separate, completely independent investigations, Steve researches a neighborhood predator guilty of several crimes throughout the area and the gruesome murder of a woman who lived right across the street from the client's home. He also uncovers the tragic circumstances surrounding a past suicide in the house, as well as the scandalous tale of a disgraced woman. Meanwhile, Amy interacts with several disturbing entities on her walk, including a dead female that loathes children and the spirit of a "creepy" dead man that preys on the women of the house. At the emotionally charged reveal, Steve and Amy disclose the findings to each other and their clients for the first time. Will Jimmy and Melissa be able to save their home and carry on the family legacy, or will they be compelled to move out to escape their terror.
