Narrator:
This is the closest I can

come to saying what I have learned

there's no shortage of

consequence in my life

we need to leave some evidence,

a little of us everywhere.

I spent all my time staring in

one direction

and I missed it

the most important moments

were in the edges

there were seven of them.

Karl:
Over there

turn around!

Sheriff Mallon:
Conrad?

You are going to have to drive

Conrad:
You know, you are

really bleeding

get in the car, come on!

Mallon:
Hit a deer on the way

here

clipped her really

she went flying headfirst into a

snowdrift,

was not breathing so I took

the defibrillator over to her

next thing I know she is wide

awake

and she kicks me in the

face-Jesus!

Conrad:
You are bleeding pretty

badly

you sure you do not want me to

take you to a hospital?

Mallon:
No, no. I have taken some percodan.

I can hardly feel any of this.

Conrad:
There is a lot of blood.

Mallon:
You - you got your own

burden.

Mallon:
Mother being found

after all these years

hell-i hope we have enough

so you can ID her

Conrad:
All I need are the teeth.

Mallon:
Yeah we should have

those

cleared out the freezer

and put her parts in there

everyone from the station

got to take some venison home

Conrad:
Guess you folks do not

get a lot of crime up here huh?

Mallon:
No sir. Especially

murder.

Not til we found this body did

we think that he-

literally killed her

speaking of your father-

your aunt thinks you may

have been talking with him?

Conrad:
I have not seen my

father since I left the farm.

Mallon:
Seen is a tricky word.

No contact at all?

Conrad:
No.

Mallon:
If you have been talking to

him, and you do not tell us about it

that could be considered

accessory after the fact.

Mallon:
Abigail, this is Conrad

do not worry about it,

it is just a cut

Abigail:
It is terrible.

Mallon:
You are making a

mountain out of a mole hill.

Conrad:
I told him to go.

Mallon:
Jesus, oh god. It is Ok, I am Ok.

Do not help me, I do not want help

Abigail:
We got to get him

patched up

Abigail:
Do you mind staying

here to hold down the fort?

It is just the two of us and the deputy

has been on duty since yesterday

everybody and his dog

is sliding off the road

Conrad:
You want me to stay

here alone-

Abigail:
Yes. I know it is

weird, but - Ok, thanks!

Okay, come on you.

Mallon:
No, no, no, no. No,

no! I got work to do!

Conrad:
You really need to go

Abigail:
I win. Be strong,

come on. Mallon:
Okay.

Mallon:
Sorry about this Conrad

Abigail:
Alright, thanks

Conrad:
Mm hmm

Karl:
Do you know what

that word means?

It is what you do to a woman

when there is no pleasure in it

Abigail:
Conrad, Conrad-

Abigail:
Conrad, um -hi

sorry about that. Hungry?

Sheriff was supposed to put you up tonight, but

he is in no real position to entertain... so

Conrad:
Is there a motel?

Abigail:
In Chapman?

No.

You are kind of stuck with me...

I am on duty for the next few

ours, so...

The deputy found a new bit of

evidence - murder weapon.

Right about sixty feet from the

bones

the handle was chewed up like

an animal dragged it all about.

Conrad:
Sawed off shotgun?

Abigail:
Yeah

Conrad:
I looked in the

freezer. It is not my mother.

Abigail:
Are you sure?

Conrad:
Yeah.

Her teeth were... A mess

it is not her.

Abigail:
Well-

I mean, who could it be then?

We do not just have people

unaccounted for

Conrad:
It is my father

Abigail:
Who would have

wanted to kill your father?

Conrad:
Himself

Abigail:
This happens a lot

this time of year.

I cannot believe I only have

one blanket. Jeez! Brrr.
