Can you tell us anything

about what happened here?

[John] Well, all

I can say is that

we're fortunate we were

able to catch this guy,

but I'm gonna urge

people not to come out

here under any circumstances.

[Newswoman] I assume

that's because this is

an active crime scene?

[John] Well,

it's just not safe.

(soft dramatic music)

(machine sputtering)

I mean, it's not bad.

I remember hearing something

about this when I was a kid,

but I didn't know this

sh*t really happened.

Well, I've lived

here for 15 years

and I've never heard of it.

How'd you find the officer?

I found him online.

I have his address.

Now I just need to figure

out how to get ahold of him.

[Rob] No phone number?

Should we just go

by there tomorrow

and see if he'll talk to us?

Yeah, we could try.


If this guy answers the door,

are we really gonna ask

him to film his interview?

(dog barking)

(sirens wailing)

(dramatic music)

[John] Yeah, who are you?

Hello, Mr. Harris?

My name is Samantha

and this is Rob,

and we're journalism

students doing

a story on something you

investigated over 40 years ago.

The devil's tree.


No way.

Forget it.

I didn't think he

was gonna let us.

I mean, call it a hunch,

but he doesn't

seem very friendly.

Look, I know everyone

called you crazy,

and maybe you thought you were.

I don't think so.

Come on, Sam.

What do you know

about the tree?

No cameras.

It's fine.

All right.

I thank you for talking

to us, Mr. Harris.

You can call me John.

I haven't talked about the tree

in a very long time.

Well, it means a lot.

And who better than

one of the officers

who investigated what happened.

I'm not a cop anymore.

It made sure of that.

What did?

Nobody knows the

truth about that tree.

Do you?
