Thank you for doing this.

I know you don't,

I know you don't

really want to be...

Maybe it'll work.


Honey, look.

It's snowing.

What are you doing?

Uh, nothing.


I feel better already.


I do.

This is the best I have felt

in a very long time.

What else could

a guy want?

[wind howling]

[theme music playing]

[V/O] It was here during

one spring vacation

that a young family came

to enjoy some rest

and relaxation.

And gain a bit of hope.

But what they found

was the opposite.

Ending with four

gruesome murders,

and a still missing

teenage girl.

All at the hands of one

Casey Pollack.

Who would soon become

known in the press as...

the "Axe Mom."

Casey Pollack worked

the night shift as a nurse,

coming home most mornings

just in time

to make her children

their lunches

and see her husband

off to work

as a local high school

physical education teacher.

But her family

is in terrible danger.

Casey Pollack,

the loving wife and mother,

is an illusion

hiding a terrible

monster inside.

Detective Dean Walker,

a 14 year veteran

of the Mt. Ryerson

Police Department

remains lead detective

on the Pollack case.

Detective Walker,

Casey Pollack's crimes were

by any standard heinous.

Was this something you believe

she thought of beforehand?

What she did was


And the amount of planning

that went into it...

She knew exactly

what she was doing.

The way she performed

the killings...

The sheer number of

executions she performed

in such a short period

of time...

with zero remorse,


She made no attempt

to hide what she had done.

[V/O] It was here,

at Shand Healing Estates

a service specializing

in spiritual retreats

that Casey began planning

her family getaway.
