Forever Scarred - Chicago, IL

In this powerfully emotional episode of The Dead Files, Retired NYPD homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi and physical medium Amy Allan investigate a Chicago home where a young mother suffers horrifying recurring nightmares. Their client, Christina, had moved out of the house when she was 18 after suffering terrifying dreams and unexplained activity. And, despite begging her father to also move out, he's still living there. And now that her own children are having nightmares, she's worried every visit to grandpa's house could be putting the family in danger. During their separate, unique investigations, Steve finds evidence that the property was once adjacent to an insane asylum where a devastating fire took the lives of some of the most unhinged inhabitants in the city. Meanwhile, Amy confronts several ominous entities, including a dead woman plotting to poison anyone who lives there. Finally, Steve and Amy unveil their gut-wrenching findings for the first time in a dramatic reveal that leads their client to tears.
