Remember the nun!

Kill the freak!

Kill the freak!

Kill the freak!

One last look.


I want you all to look.

I want you all to remember.

This was a nun.

A few months shy

of her 80th birthday.

A nun.

He did this... to a nun.

We all know the book of Matthew.

We all know what Jesus did.

He called his twelve

disciples to him

and he gave them the authority

to cast out evil spirits.

Well, today,

each and every one of you

has that same authority.

And have no doubts

in your minds.

Johnny frank Garrett

is the essence of evil.

That boy is more animal

than man.

But I'm not asking you

to take that on faith.

You take that on the people

that knew him.

From his teacher.

You take it from the facts.

Johnny frank Garrett's


were found all over

sister Benz's bedroom.

On the headboard, no less.

There's more fingerprints

on the nightstand table,

right next to her stabbed,


and violated body.

You take it from the fact

that he's got a history

of violence.

You take it from the fact

that he's got a history

of drug abuse.

Indeed, the night of the murder,

he'd ingested two tabs of LSD.


And then he was seen

acting in an agitated

and very suspicious manner

mere feet from

St. Francis convent.

But mostly,

ladies and gentlemen,

you take it from

the boy's words.

You take it from his own words.

He's already confessed

to the crime.

To his arresting officers.

He admitted it

to fellow prisoners.

Hell, he even bragged about it.

I'm sorry.

You know...

They always say

you're not supposed to

take the devil at his word.

And I believe that, I do.

In my heart of hearts,

I believe that.

But we even caught him boasting.

We caught that boy

boasting about it.

Let's take one last look

at sister Benz.

That's who you're looking at,

sister Benz.

You convict that devil.

You convict that devil or I

swear to god he will kill again.

"Avenge not yourself,

but rather give place

unto wrath.

For it is written,

'justice is mine;

I shall repay, '

saith the lord."

District attorney Danny hill

has left no stone unturned

in his zealous pursuit

for justice.

Well, there's dreams,

and then there's visions.

This was a vision

that came to me in a dream.

I urge all the citizens

of Amarillo, Texas,

to follow the lord's teachings.

- He's investigating

- 47 individuals

who settled in Amarillo

under former president

Jimmy Carter's

Cuban special placement program.

I will not rest

until the perpetrator

of this heinous crime

is arrested, incarcerated,

and executed, so help me god.

And in this vision,

you saw the killer's face?

Well, Kathy,

I saw his face,

I saw his address.

I even saw a name.

Mr. Clyde.

Slow down!

He's right there!

Come out with your hands up!

God will have mercy

on your soul.

"Our father, who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come,

thy will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day

our daily bread,

and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom

and the power and the glory,

forever and ever. Amen."

Okay, then. All in favor?

Raise your hand

if you're in favor.

Um, I'm sorry, y'all.

I have some doubts.

You have some doubts?

Would you like us to pray again?

Uh, no, ma'am.

Thank you.

Okay, okay.

First of all, a psychic?

That's how they found him?

Look, I don't believe in this
