(WOMAN SCREAMING)

(WOMAN GASPING)

Reporting to you live from Lynwood County

where a chilling scene

has been discovered by police.

The bodies of four family members

were found inside early this morning

in what police are describing

to be a brutal homicide.

We are collaborating with various

law enforcement agencies

on a possible connection to a previous

set of murders in Oakwood Glen.

(WHIMPERING)

Dozens of miniature cameras

were found inside the property,

hidden in household objects

such as smoke detectors,

bookshelves and light fixtures.

These killers are broadcasting

their crimes as a live feed.

Viewers apparently had no idea

that what they were watching

was happening in real life.

I thought that it was fake.

You just don't expect it to be real.

I kind of feel sick to my stomach

about it, but it's still entertaining.

It appears that these victims were given

the opportunities to defend themselves.

(WOMAN GRUNTS)

This played out like

some kind of deadly game.

The violence was kind of overwhelming...

- Gruesome and...

- Graphic.

But it was okay in the moment

because it was like a horror movie.

I was rooting for them.

I really didn't want them to die.

The whereabouts of a fifth family member

Marissa Vasquez are unknown tonight

as authorities continue to search

for the young woman missing

since the horrifying incident.

(SCREAMING)

Our working theory is that this feed

is being transmitted on a time delay.

(WOMAN SCREAMS)

FEMALE REPORTER:
These killers

are treating their broadcasts

like a Hollywood horror movie,

designed with one chilling purpose...

...to entertain.

The question that remains is,

will these killers strike again?

And if so...

MAN:
(DISTORTED VOICE)

How will they select their victims?

JAMIE:
I keep having this...

This nightmare.

It starts the same every night.

There's, um...

There's a storm outside.

It's thunder and lightning and...

I feel like I'm not alone.

Like someone's watching me.

MAN:
Someone is watching you?

Who's watching you?

- JAMIE:
Her.

- MAN:
Your mother?

JAMIE:
Well, at first I just...

I feel her presence.

But when the lightning flashes,

I can see her.

She's laying on the kitchen table.

And she's got a shroud over her.

MAN:
So what's happening in Jamie's world?

JAMIE:
And I can see all these bugs,

these spiders and cockroaches,

and they're just...

I'm fine.

They're just eating away at her.

MAN:
Are you feeling scared?

No.

MAN:
Those are very scary images.

It's okay to be scared.

It's perfectly normal to be scared.

Yeah.

MAN:
Sometimes letting yourself be

vulnerable makes you stronger.

So do you think your father

has dealt with his grief well?

JAMIE:
No.

He came home one day

with this new girlfriend.

MAN:
You must resent him for that.

JAMIE:
I don't resent him. I resent her.

MAN:
That's your stepmother, Olivia.

How do you feel about Olivia?

JAMIE:
She's so different from my mom.

I barely survived the first six months

of their marriage.

Now, I gotta be stuck with her

on a whole ten-day vacation.

DJ:
I told you, you should have peed

at the airport.

ADAM:
I understand that.

(SIGHS)

It's not gonna be a problem.

I'm gonna take care of it.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

Is there some maid you hired I'm unaware of?

Coat on the rack,

suitcase out of the way. Come on.

Wait, wait, wait. Steve.

- JAMIE:
Dad!

- Let me explain.

- JAMIE:
You're shouting.

- Let me explain.

I'm gonna get you the money.

You have my word.

The deposit should go through any day now.
