Pumpkin spice season is often people's favorite time of the year. Relief from scorching summer temperatures arrives, and with it, a glorious orange, gold, and red blanket splays across the countryside. And in October of 2004, California's Napa Valley, home of America's wine country, was amping to be a spectacular autumn.
In one of Napa's cozy neighborhoods on Dorset Street, a house was decorated for Halloween like many others. In that house lived three women, friends who decided it was wiser to pool their resources and live together than separately. And even though Napa had a low crime rate—two years since there had been a serious crime—there was safety in numbers. Or so they thought.
On November 1st, 2004, at about 2:00 in the morning, Lauren was awakened by the security light flipping on behind the garage. She didn't overthink it because sometimes the cats would often get out. But then she heard her dog give a "warning bark." Lauren quieted her dog, but within minutes, she heard someone entering the house and going up the stairs. Thinking it may be one of her roommate's boyfriends, she quieted the dog again and dozed off.
Then she heard a blood-curdling scream.
