The McDonough family was sweltering in the summer heat, the air conditioner was broken. Sleeping was difficult, that turned out to be a fortuitous break. They awoke in the early morning hours, to muffled sounds of a struggle. The parents get to their daughter's room and see a 255 lbs beast wearing all black straddling their 15year old daughter, holding a fifteen inch hunting knife . The parents jump into action and refuse to be further victimized. The investigation revealed that, Adam Lane was on a murderous rampage on the east coast. It was destined to end at the McDonough residence in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
