I should have gone

on a swamp tour.

I know. I swear he's

gotta have a meth lab...

I don't know what else

to tell ya, Hamilton.

Just get the neighbor

to quiet down.

Look, we've got

every major drunk

from Mardi Gras

down here.

There's no room.

He tried to give me

a speeding ticket.

Just make it happen.

Yes, sir.

How are we doing, Winslow?

Morning, Sheriff.

Well, New Orleans PD

sent us another handful

to hold overnight

and Hamilton is out

at Sable Ranch.


All in all,

not that bad a year.


not bad at all.

Oh, she's got a gun!

I killed him.

Drop the gun, now!

Get on the floor, now!

Arms up.

On the floor!

Spread 'em!

Wait, she has

something in her hand.

What is it?

Oh, god!

It's a f***ing scalp.

Who-Who'd you kill?

They're all dead.

Who's dead?

Honey Island Swamp.

I need an available

boat unit

out to Honey Island

Swamp now.

Hamilton, are you there?

I killed him.

I killed him.

Any injuries?

Nothing noticeable, sir.

Are you trying to tell me

that none of that

blood is hers?

How many bodies did

you say there were?

Twenty, thirty.

And you're the

only one who made it?

Just a few scratches?

No major injuries, huh?

You see how this could look

just a tiny bit suspicious,

don't you?

there is no answer at

the Dunston house.

Try again.

I have.

Five times.

Well then get in your car

and drive over there,

Deputy Elbert.

Yes, sir.

I'm on it.

Nobody's home.

Crowley killed them all.

Enough about Victor Crowley.

We know who

Victor Crowley is.

And we also know

what reality is.

So, let me see if

I got this straight.

You suspected Victor Crowley of

killing your father and your&?

- Brother.

- Brother, right.

So you jumped in a

swamp tour boat,

an illegal swamp

tour boat,

and headed back out

into the swamp

armed with nothing

but a handgun.

A ghost wiped out

everyone in front of you.

You found out that

your family was dead

and you barely escape

with your life.

But then the next night,

you go back out into

that same swamp,

chase that same

damn ghost

and you bring more

people with you?

Now why would you do

something like that?

That has to be the

stupidest story

and some of the most

idiotic and contrived

decision making

I've ever heard.

I am telling you the truth.

I don't think you realize

the kind of deep sh*t

you're in, little girl!

You come into a goddamn

police station

covered in someone else's

blood, head to toe,

you're carrying a weapon

and a piece of somebody's

f***ing head!

And the best you got

for me for an alibi

is some kind of

urban legend?


I am talking to you.

Let me tell you something.

You go up in front

of the judge

you better come up with a

better excuse than what's-

- Sheriff, come in.

- Yeah, I'm here.

Sir, it's, uh&

What is it, Hamilton?

Spit it out!

It's a f***ing massacre

out here, sir.

I mean, we've only

covered about 40 yards

and we already come up

with four bodies.

I mean, I mean&

Jesus, they don't even

have faces, Louis.

Look, we're gonna have to call

in every goddamn paramedic

in the state and a full

recovery team right away.

We're talking about DNA

and dental records level

sh*t out here, man.

Sh*t, they're going to

have only teeth though.

Uh, we got a girl in custody.


I'm on my way.

Uh, we're gonna call

in state, Sheriff.

we're dealing with

down here.

Sh*t, we keep finding

pieces everywhere.

I said,

I am on my way, Deputy.

Sir, do you want me to go?

Get the fire and paramedics

out there right away.

I'm on it.

This is Deputy Winslow.

I need all available...
