Transcript-Interrogation of Fr. Daniel Wallace
Interrogating Officer: Sgt. Eric Renfield
Location: 642 Tanner St.- St. Marks Church
Time: 11:20 AM
Renfield: Thank you for speaking with me Father Wallace. You were the Ludaracs' priest?
Wallace: Yes. As far as I'm concerned, I still am. I'm always available for my parishioners.
Renfield: You knew Lucy?
Wallace: Of course. I conducted her funeral.
Renfield: Do you recall any signs of drastic behavior from any of the family after her death? Signs of suicidal behavior? Aggression? Things of that nature?
Wallace: First of all, what a man says to his priest is no business of the law. At any rate, I believe Lucy's funeral was the last time I saw them here. I've only heard stories.
Renfield: What kind of stories?
Wallace: Mostly the stuff of urban legend. Some of the younger kids say Lucy still haunts their house and that's why Kayla and Cooper look so miserable all the time. Personally, I think if they look miserable, it's because they lost a sister.
Renfield: Ah, just childish superstition.
Wallace: Mostly, yes. Although, there was an incident.
Renfield: Could you elaborate?
Wallace: Well, I've done my best to sweep it under the rug, so if you could be discreet about this, it would be appreciated.
Renfield: Off the record?
Wallace: No, no that's alright, just don't go yelling it around the neighborhood. It was the night of the 6th. I don't quite know how to explain this. The community here felt terrible when we heard about Lucy. The out-pouring of support was unprecedented. There wasn't a person in fifty miles that didn't feel just horrible for that family. Then, the strangest thing happened. It was that night, someone must have snuck into the church very late. I still don't know how they got in. Anyway, they wrote something on the altar. I cleaned it up before anyone saw, thank God.
Renfield: What did they write?
Wallace: They wrote, "The Ludarac's Will Burn in Hell."
Renfield: In what, marker?
Wallace: No, dirt or ash. I just swept it up as fast as I could.
Renfield: Did you tell them?
Wallace: I don't believe it's a sin to withhold that kind of information from a suffering family.
Renfield: You don't know who did it?
Wallace: I don't know now, and I don't want to know later. The person that did that needs help that is far beyond my abilities. I pray they find it.
Renfield: Have there been any other incidents of that nature?
Wallace: No, just that one.
Renfield: Anything else you would care to tell me, Father Wallace?
Wallace: Not that springs to mind, but I'll hang on to your card if I think of anything.
Renfield: Thank you for your time, Father.
