In this episode of The Dead Files, retired NYPD homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi and physical medium Amy Allan investigate a home in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, where a 100-year-old murder may be related to frightening paranormal experiences.
Their client, Carol, has reached her breaking point due to the horrific activity inside her home. Not only has she become ill, but her husband has been physically attacked and her daughter has been possessed by a demonic spirit roaming the property, destroying relationships between loved ones. With her family on the verge of tearing itself apart, Carol has desperately turned to Steve and Amy for answers.
During their distinctly separate investigations, Steve digs into the property's past to uncover an abusive relationship between a husband and wife that ends in gunfire and death. He also researches the history of a Civil War era orphanage prone to neglect and abuse that used to stand right next to Carol's property. Meanwhile, Amy confronts a demon lurking in the barn and the spirit of a woman so full of negative energy, she can cause illness and caught in a battle against another spirit trapped in the home, leaving the living caught in the crossfire.
Ultimately, Steve and Amy come together to reveal their startling discoveries to Carol, her family, and each other for the first time in hopes of protecting the living from the dangerous and frightening forces that torment them.
