Evil Personified
4 October 2007 | by sol-kaySee all my reviews

(There are Spoilers) Overcoming the both murder suicide of her mother and father young and traumatized Carly Segan, Tracy Gold, was taken in to the Safe Harbor home for disturbed and abuse children for both treatment and loving care. The person who runs as well as founded Safe Harbor Olivia Wyatt, Pamela Perry, is very proud of the work that her "safe home" provides for throw away young people, like Carly,but that's soon to end with devastating and deadly results.

A young woman is found strangled on the Safe Harbor grounds who's later identifies as Kathy Easton a former resident of the home. It's also found next to Kathy's body painted on a brick wall a satanic symbol written in an eerie florescent and illuminating red paint. Put on the case Carly now a police detective together with her partner Joe Avery, Mitchell Kosterman, track down a number of leads that ultimately lead to a former Safe Harbor employee the all around handyman Ray Oakum ,Scott Heindl. It turns out that Oakum has a long record as a sex offended and either lied on his application for the job or was helped, by her keeping it from Mrs. Wyatt, by the homes personal director Julia Thorpe, Stacy Grant.

As both Carly and Joe are trying to get to the bottom of the Kathy Easton murder another young woman is found dead, strangled, on the Safe Harbor grounds Suzanne Oswald who, like Kathy, just happened to have been a resident at the place when she was a young girl! As the evidence piles up against Oakum it's later found out that he's been blackmailing Mrs.Wyatt for some $75,000.00, in three installments, since he was canned by her from his job there. This payment is for Oakum to keep his mouth shut from exposing that Mrs. Wyatt hired him, a convicted pedophile, to work among mostly preteen-age girls and boys who are residents at Safe Harbor.

It seems right from the start that money, not anything to do with a satanic cult, is the real reason for the murders committed at Safe Harbor. This fact is more then ever clarified then Mrs. Waytt himself is found strangled to death in the gazebo on the Safe Harbor grounds. It turns out that Mrs. Waytt was going to leave her entire fortune to Safe Harbor cutting everyone out including her son, and the guy that Carly has been having the hots for since she was a little girl at the place, Sam or better known to his friends as "Handsome Sam" Waytt, Steve Bacic.

"Handeson Sam" besides being a loyal and loving son is also the very person who's been telling his now murdered mother Mrs. Wyatt not to pay off Oakum in his blackmail attempts and call his bluff. This may have had her killed in miscalculating the blackmailers real intentions. It's very unlikely Sam would have murdered his mother when he had in fact, besides being her son, nothing to gain from it but only end up throwing suspicion on himself. All the evidence is now focused on both the fugitive from justice Oakum and Julia Thorpe in working together to knock off both Mrs. Waytt and her son Sam, who would ultimately end up getting control of Safe Harbor, to get their hands on her money that's slated for Safe Harbor.

The only problem in this whole confusing scenario is that Oakum, being tracked down and shot by Carly, who's now in the hospital with a slug in his chest claims that he never saw a penny of the missing $75,000.00, that Mrs. Waytt supposedly paid him off with, and in fact wasn't the one doing the blackmailing? Or even better yet was this whole scheme done by a third party who wanted to frame both Oakum and Thorpe and thus pave the way for their arrest and conviction of a crime that they didn't commit as he, or she, got away Scot-free?
