Web of Lies S2E10 Script

Separated at Birth (2015)

THIS WAS AS DRAMATIC AND CHILLING AND SHOCKING A CRIME AS I'VE SEEN.

A PREGNANCY THAT DOESN'T END AS PLANNED.

WHERE'S MY BABY? I WANT TO SEE MY BABY.

JAIME?

A FAMILY CONVULSES WITH FEAR...

I DON'T KNOW WHO ELSE TO CALL.

...AS AN ONLINE TRAP ENSNARES AN INNOCENT VICTIM.

SHE HIT ALL THE BUTTONS...

ALL THE RIGHT BUTTONS IN THIS FAMILY.

AND NO ONE HAS ANY IDEA WHERE THEIR CHILDREN HAVE GONE.

I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG, AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT.


WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO BREAK THE NEWS EVENTUALLY.

SO, BABY, I'LL DO ALL THE TALKING.

AND, HOPEFULLY, SHE WON'T TAKE IT TOO HARSHLY.

21-YEAR-OLD JAMIE STICE AND HER BOYFRIEND, JAMES REYNOLDS, ARE WAITING FOR HER MOM, JEANNIE, TO ARRIVE HOME.

JAMIE NEVER KEPT A SECRET FROM HER MAMA.

THEY TALKED ABOUT EVERYTHING.

SHE LOVED ME TO DEATH AND I LOVED HER TO DEATH.

SHE COULD COME TO ME, AND SHE'D TELL ME ANYTHING THAT WAS BOTHERING HER.

DESPITE HOW CLOSE THEY ARE, JAMIE'S NOT SURE HOW HER MOM'S GOING TO TAKE THE BOMBSHELL SHE'S ABOUT TO DELIVER.

HI, MAMA.

HEY.

I BROUGHT JAMES OVER TO TELL YOU SOME NEWS.

OKAY.

I'M ACTUALLY PREGNANT.

I WAS SCARED TO DEATH AT FIRST, YOU KNOW, AND THEN I SAW HOW SHE WAS GONNA TAKE IT.

AND I THOUGHT, "NO, IT'S ALREADY THERE, AND IT'S GONNA HAPPEN.

I MIGHT AS WELL FACE IT."

I'M GONNA BE A GRANDMA.

THANK YOU, MAMA.

JAMIE CALLED ME, AND SHE SAID, "KELLY, I'VE GOT SOMETHING TO TELL YOU."

SHE SAID, "I'M PREGNANT."

I SAID, "ARE YOU REALLY?"

SHE SAID, "YES!"

AND I COULD TELL BY THE WAY SHE SAID "YES" ON THE PHONE THAT HER GRIN WAS RIGHT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF IT.

WE'RE GONNA HAVE A BABY IN THE HOUSE.

WITH HER MOTHER ON HER SIDE, JAMIE CAN NOW TELL ALL HER ONLINE FRIENDS THE GOOD NEWS.

AND TO LOG EVERY MOMENT OF HER EXPERIENCE, SHE REGISTERS WITH A PREGNANCY TRACKER APP.

SHE HAD THIS THING ON FACEBOOK THAT EACH WEEK, IT TOLD YOU HOW FAR ALONG YOU WERE AND HOW BIG YOUR BABY WAS AND IF IT HAD ITS LITTLE FINGERS OR ITS FINGERNAILS YET.

BUT NOT EVERYONE IN HER FAMILY IS HAPPY ABOUT JAMIE'S NEWS.

ALL I COULD THINK WAS THAT HER LIFE WAS RUINED, REALLY, JUST TO BE BLUNT.

I JUST KIND OF FELT LIKE IT WAS STANDING IN THE WAY OF HER SUCCEEDING.

SHE WASN'T REALLY FINANCIALLY READY OR CAPABLE OF RAISING A KID.

JAMIE'S OWN CHILDHOOD WAS NOT THE EASIEST.

HER PARENTS SPLIT UP WHEN SHE WAS JUST A TODDLER.

WE DIVORCED WHEN JAMIE WAS TWO YEARS OLD.

THE LIFE HE WAS LIVING WASN'T THE LIFE WE SHOULD HAVE HAD FOR THE KIDS.

JEANNIE RAISED JAMIE AND HER OLDER BROTHER, ERIC, AS A SINGLE MOM UNTIL SHE MET MIKE, WHO QUICKLY BECAME THEIR STEPDAD.

JAMIE AND MIKE, THEY GET ALONG OKAY.

THEY NEVER FOUGHT OR ARGUED OR ANYTHING.

SHE HAD HER FRIENDS COMING IN AND OUT, AND, I MEAN, HE STAYED TO HISSELF.

THEY STAYED TO THEIRSELVES.

JAMIE'S PREGNANCY MAY BE UNPLANNED, BUT SHE DREAMS OF A FUTURE FOR HER BABY THAT'S VERY DIFFERENT FROM HER OWN UPBRINGING.

SHE HAD THESE CAREER PATHS CHOSEN AND WAS PRETTY DEAD SET ON IT.

MAMA, HERE.

RIGHT AT WESTERN KENTUCKY, I'VE GOT 18 MONTHS FOR SOCIAL WORK.

YOU COULD LIVE AT HOME.

YEAH, I SHOULD APPLY TO THAT ONE FOR SURE.

YEAH, GET THAT ONE. ALL RIGHT.

SHE WANTED TO BE A SOCIAL WORKER.

AND SHE WANTED TO HELP CHILDREN AS MUCH AS SHE COULD BECAUSE SHE TOLD ME, GROWING UP, THAT SHE SAW ALL KINDS OF KIDS THAT SHE WISHED SHE COULD HAVE HELPED.

SHE WAS THINKING AHEAD IN HER FUTURE, AND SHE DIDN'T WANT THE SAME LIFE THAT SHE'D BEEN RAISED IN.

YOU KNOW, VERY POOR AND ALWAYS HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT BILLS.

JAMIE, JEANNIE.

HEY, BABY.

JAMIE, YOU AIN'T GOT TIME FOR SCHOOL.

YOU GONNA HAVE A BABY.

J.J., GO GRAB YOURSELF A BEER, AND LET ME READ.

JAMIE HAS BEEN DATING 23-YEAR-OLD JAMES, KNOWN AS J.J., FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS.

THEY MET, AND SHE SAID AS SOON AS SHE SAW JAMES, SHE FELL IN LOVE.

I ALWAYS LIKED JAMES.

JAMES WAS A GOOD GUY.

HE WAS MARRIED ONCE BEFORE.

BECAUSE OF THAT, JAMIE DIDN'T WANT TO PUSH HIM INTO A MARRIAGE JUST BECAUSE SHE WAS PREGNANT.

JAMES HAS HAD A NUMBER OF TEMPORARY JOBS.

NOW, HE'S STRUGGLING TO FIND A PERMANENT POSITION TO HELP HIM SUPPORT GABE, A SON FROM A PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIP, AS WELL AS JAMIE.

HEY, J.J. HEY, MAMA.

I THOUGHT YOU'D BE AT WORK.

THEY LET ME GO.

THEY LET HALF OF US GO.

THEY JUST, PFFT, DOWNSIZED.

YOU, YOU LOOKING FOR SOMETHING ELSE?

OF COURSE. I ALREADY MADE SOME CALLS, GONNA PICK UP A FEW EXTRA SHIFTS AND GONNA MAKE IT WORK, MAMA.

I PROMISE.

IT WAS SCARY KNOWING THE FINANCIAL SITUATION.

THREE MONTHS INTO HER PREGNANCY, JAMIE IS ABLE TO TEMPORARILY PUT ASIDE THEIR FINANCIAL WORRIES.

SHE'S ELATED BY HER FIRST ULTRASOUND, WHICH DELIVERS SOME IMPORTANT NEWS.

SHE FOUND OUT HE WAS A BOY, AND THAT'S WHEN SHE AND JAMES STARTED PICKING OUT NAMES.

TAKE CARE OF THAT LITTLE BABY.

JAMIE SETTLES ON THE NAME ISAIAH, WHICH MEANS "GOD IS SALVATION."

THERE WAS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THE NAME ISAIAH THAT SHE JUST LOVED.

SHE SAID IT WAS, "SOMETHING DIFFERENT, SOMETHING THAT MEANT SOMETHING," SHE SAID.

BY SPRING 2011, JAMIE IS SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT, AND SHE'S FINDING THE DEMANDS OF HER INCREASING SIZE DIFFICULT.

SHE COULDN'T GET OUT AND DO EVERYTHING LIKE SHE USED TO.

IT WAS KIND OF BRINGING HER DOWN A LITTLE.

YOU COULD TELL THAT SHE WAS BORED BECAUSE SHE WAS EITHER CALLING ME OR MESSAGED ME ON FACEBOOK ASKING ME WHAT I WAS DOING, WHEN I'D BE OVER.

I COULDN'T ALWAYS BE THERE.

I HAD TO WORK.

TRAPPED IN THE HOUSE ALL DAY AND STRUGGLING WITH HER PREGNANCY, WHAT JAMIE NEEDS MORE THAN ANYTHING IS SUPPORT FROM JAMES, THE FATHER-TO-BE.

LOOK AT THIS HERE NOW, BABY.

A WEE WOODEN GYM.

HEY, BABY, GET OUT OF YOUR PHONE THERE AND LOOK.

I AM.

NO, JUST LOOK AT IT FOR ONE SECOND. LOOK.

HE COULD GET A LITTLE GYM, JUST LIKE DADDY.

JAMIE, WE CAN'T AFFORD THIS STUFF!

THE BABY CAN HAVE GABE'S OLD STUFF.

HE CAN HAVE SOME OF GABE'S OLD STUFF.

WE CAN'T AFFORD IT. WE DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY.

WHY ARE YOU BEING SO NEGATIVE?

I'M NOT BEING NEGATIVE. I'M BEING REAL.

I GOT TO GO SEE THE GUYS.

THEY'RE CALLING. I'LL SEE YOU LATER.

HEY, REYNOLDS, DON'T YOU WALK AWAY FROM ME LIKE THAT.

HEY!

COME ON.

AS JAMIE AND JAMES' RELATIONSHIP DETERIORATES, JAMIE TURNS MORE AND MORE TO THE INTERNET TO EXPRESS HER FEELINGS.

SEEMED LIKE EVERY TIME ISAIAH KICKED, SHE HAD TO WRITE ABOUT IT.

SHE WOULD ALWAYS, ALWAYS POST, "I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU, ISAIAH, MOMMY LOVES YOU."

SHE WOULD TALK TO THE BABY.

SHE TALKED TO HIM ALL THE TIME.

AND SHE SANG TO HIM.

SHE SANG THE "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE" TO HIM.

JAMES' EVER MORE FREQUENT ABSENCES BEGIN TO TAKE THEIR TOLL ON JAMIE.

SHE WAS STUCK IN THE HOUSE ALL DAY.

SHE KIND OF FELT ISOLATED FROM EVERYBODY ELSE.

IT SEEMED IT GOT TO WHERE SHE WAS ALMOST CRYING EVERYDAY BECAUSE SHE WAS WORRIED SICK THAT SHE WAS GONNA HAVE TO DO IT ON HER OWN.

THEN, OUT OF NOWHERE, JAMIE GETS AN ONLINE FRIEND REQUEST...

...AND A MESSAGE THAT COULD MAKE HER TROUBLES FADE AWAY.

PROBLEM IS, ON THE INTERNET, FRIENDS MIGHT NOT ALWAYS BE WHAT THEY SEEM.

JAMIE ASSUMED EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD WAS A GOOD PERSON LIKE HER.

SHE WAS JUST A VERY TRUSTING SOUL, DIDN'T REALLY SEE THE EVIL IN THE WORLD.

IN BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY, 21-YEAR-OLD JAMIE STICE HAS JUST RECEIVED A MESSAGE FROM A COMPLETE STRANGER.

SHE'S SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT AND HAS BEEN POSTING REGULAR UPDATES ON HER FACEBOOK PAGE.

YET, SHE HAS NO IDEA WHO THIS NEW MESSAGE IS FROM.

SHE SAID SHE'S BECCA'S COUSIN, MAMA.

CHECK HER PAGE. MAKE SURE BECCA'S THERE.

BECCA IS A GIRL I'VE KNOW ALL OF HER LIFE.

BUT THERE SHE IS.

YEAH.

BECCA'S COUSIN IS KATHY MICHELLE COY.

REASSURED BY THEIR MUTUAL CONTACTS, JAMIE HAPPILY STARTS CHATTING WITH HER NEW ONLINE FRIEND.

OKAY. I'M GOING TO WORK.

BYE, MAMA.

HAVE A GOOD DAY.

WE ADDED HER AS A FRIEND.

AND THEN SHE JUST STARTED CHATTING WITH US, AND WE CHATTED BACK.

JAMIE REALIZED, "HEY, I GOT SOMEBODY ELSE THAT I CAN TALK TO.

WE GOT A LOT IN COMMON.

I CAN HANG OUT WITH HER."

SHE WAS NEW TO FACEBOOK.

SHE NEEDED FRIENDS.

WE FOUND OUT SHE LIVED IN MORGANTOWN, AND THAT'S, LIKE, 30 MILES DOWN THE ROAD.

OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, KATHY AND JAMIE SHARE BOTH PREGNANCY AND RELATIONSHIP WORRIES.

KATHY TELLS JAMIE ABOUT HER HUSBAND, SHANNON.

WELL, HER HUSBAND, HE WORKED OUT OF TOWN A LOT.

AND JAMIE SHARES WITH KATHY HER CONCERNS ABOUT HER RELATIONSHIP WITH JAMES.

FOR JAMIE, THIS COULDN'T HAVE COME AT A BETTER TIME.

KATHY IS JUST THE KIND OF FRIEND SHE'S BEEN LOOKING FOR.

SHE FELT NEEDED SOMEBODY, AND SHE STARTED TALKING TO KATHY, AND SHE REALIZED KATHY WAS BEING NICE TO HER.

SHE WAS SO HAPPY ABOUT IT.

THEN, SUDDENLY, THE STICE HOUSEHOLD IS HIT BY A BOLT FROM THE BLUE.

JAMIE'S MOTHER AND STEPFATHER, MIKE, BOTH LOSE THEIR JOBS.

JAMIE'S WORLD IS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.

BUT HER NEW ONLINE FRIEND MIGHT HAVE A SOLUTION.

KATHY LET JAMIE KNOW THAT SHE COULD HELP HER, GET HER BABY CLOTHES, DIAPERS.

AND AT THE TIME, JAMIE WOULD TAKE ALL THE HELP SHE COULD GET.

SHE THOUGHT IT WAS GREAT THAT SOMEBODY WAS THERE TO WANT TO HELP HER WITH THE FINANCIAL SITUATION.

WITHIN DAYS, KATHY OFFERS TO DRIVE THE 30 MILES TO BOWLING GREEN.

FOR JAMIE AND HER MOTHER, IT'LL BE THEIR FIRST CHANCE TO MEET THEIR POTENTIAL SAVIOR IN THE FLESH.

THAT'D BE KATHY? YEAH.

HI! HI.

JAMIE?

IT'S KATHY. NICE TO MEET YOU FINALLY.

NICE TO MEET YOU, AS WELL. COME ON IN.

THANK YOU.

WOW, WHAT A LOVELY HOME. THANK YOU.

MAMA, LOOK WHO WE HAVE HERE.

HI!

I THOUGHT KATHY COY WAS A VERY NICE PERSON.

SHE'S A LITTLE BIT LOUD BECAUSE SHE'S DEAF IN ONE EAR.

LISTEN, I BROUGHT SOME MAGAZINES.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE GOT ANY HERE, BUT I FELT THEY MIGHT BE HELPFUL.

THAT'S NICE. SOME PREGNANCY MAGAZINES.

WOW.

BECCA SAYS TO SAY HELLO.

OURS BACK TO BECCA. SEND HER MY BEST.

I WILL.

MY TWO SISTERS BOTH WENT TO SCHOOL WITH KATHY.

THEY SAID THAT SHE WAS KIND OF AN OUTSIDER IN SCHOOL.

SHE DIDN'T HAVE VERY MANY FRIENDS BECAUSE OF HER HEARING.

AND A LOT OF KIDS PICKED ON HER AND MADE FUN OF HER.

ALL THESE PRETTY THINGS JUST MAKE ME WANT TO HAVE A SHOWER.

JAMIE WOULD DEARLY LOVE TO HAVE A BABY SHOWER.

BUT WITH MONEY SO TIGHT, SHE'S PUT OFF ORGANIZING ONE, HOPING THEIR FINANCIAL SITUATION WOULD IMPROVE.

WELL, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A SHOWER.

YOU GOT TO HAVE A SHOWER! I KNOW. I KNOW.

I THINK WE DECIDED IT'S A LITTLE TOO COMPLICATED.

I COULD HELP! I WOULD LOVE TO.

IT'D BE GREAT.

ARE YOU SURE?

I LOVE PARTIES.

JAMIE WAS JUST SO EXCITED TO HAVE SOMEBODY TO HELP HER TO KIND OF TAKE A LITTLE BIT OF WEIGHT OFF HER SHOULDERS.

OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS, KATHY SPENDS MORE AND MORE TIME AT THE STICE HOUSE.

AND SOON, HER VISITS INVOLVE MORE THAN JUST HELPING TO PLAN JAMIE'S BABY SHOWER.

SHE WAS STARTING TO OFFER ME RIDES AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

SO THEN, SHE CAME MORE AND MORE.

KNOCK, KNOCK. SPEAK OF THE DEVIL.

HEY, Y'ALL. I KNOW.

HOW ARE YOU?

HEY, Y'ALL. WOW. HI.

EVERY DAY OR EVERY OTHER DAY, YOU KNOW, AND THEN FINALLY, IT WAS JUST EVERY SINGLE DAY.

NOW, I BOUGHT SOME THINGS FOR Y'ALL.

I THINK YOU'RE GONNA LIKE THEM.

SHE WAS ALWAYS JUST RIGHT THERE.

LOOK AT THESE SOCKS.

LOOK AT THIS.

HOW CUTE!

IT'S A DUMP TRUCK, A LITTLE TRACTOR.

AND KATHY'S GENEROSITY ISN'T LIMITED TO BABY CLOTHES.

AND, OF COURSE, A BOTTLE.

AND THEN THIS IS JUST FOR YOU, JEANNIE.

THAT'S JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING TO HELP.

MY...

IT'S NOTHING. KATHY.

NOW, WHAT ARE Y'ALL TALKING ABOUT?

SHE'S GETTING SOME HELP WITH OUR ELECTRIC BILL AND OUR RENT AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

JAMIE WAS VERY, VERY HAPPY THAT SOMEBODY WANTED TO HELP HER.

SHE THOUGHT IT WAS A GODSEND.

IT'S THE LEAST I CAN DO.

KATHY, THAT'S TOO MUCH.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'D DO WITHOUT YOU RIGHT NOW, REALLY.

JAMIE COULDN'T BE MORE UPBEAT.

THIS IS GONNA BE A FUN DAY.

AFTER MONTHS OF WORRY, KATHY HAS FINALLY GIVEN HER SOME HOPE FOR THE FUTURE.

SHE'S PUT SOME CLOTHES ASIDE FOR YOUR BABY.

BUT SOME OF JAMIE'S FRIENDS ARE LESS THRILLED ABOUT HER NEW ONLINE BUDDY.

THE MINUTE I SAW HER, SHE GAVE ME THE CREEPS.

THERE WAS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT HER THAT I DIDN'T LIKE.

MOTHER-TO-BE JAMIE STICE IS 71/2 MONTHS PREGNANT AND QUICKLY LOSING TOUCH WITH HER OLD FRIENDS AND THE FATHER OF HER CHILD.

IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS, THE PERSON WHO HAS BEEN THERE THE MOST FOR JAMIE IS HER NEW ONLINE PAL, KATHY COY.

SHE TOO IS JUST A FEW WEEKS FROM GIVING BIRTH AND HAS BEEN HELPING JAMIE AND HER MOTHER, JEANNIE, PLAN A BABY SHOWER.

KATHY ALSO HAS IDEAS ABOUT HOW JAMIE CAN GET SOME CHEAP BABY CLOTHES.

SHE HAD A GOOD FRIEND THAT HAD A BABY STORE, AND SHE WAS CLOSING THE STORE AND THEY HAD TO GO THAT DAY.


BEFORE KATHY AND JAMIE GO SHOPPING, KATHY OFFERS TO DRIVE JEANNIE INTO TOWN.

EXCITED ABOUT YOUR SHOWER?

YEAH.

SHE WAS GONNA PICK ME UP AND GIVE ME A RIDE TO GO TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE.

AND THEN, COME BACK AND GET JAMIE AND GO BABY SHOPPING.

THERE'S JUST A COUPLE FINISHING TOUCHES.

WELL, THAT'D BE KATHY.

YOU JUST TELL HER I'LL SEE HER LATER.

YEAH, DON'T GET UP.

HEY. Y'ALL READY?

I'M OUT OF HERE.

BYE, MAMA.

HOW'S JAMIE? SHE'S GOOD.

GOOD. HOW ABOUT YOU?

I'M ALL RIGHT.

THIS IS SO GOOD OF YOU.

IT'S NOTHING.

YOU KNOW I'M ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP.

IT'S A 15-MINUTE DRIVE TO THE BOWLING GREEN SOCIAL SECURITY OFFICE.

AFTER I GOT THERE, SHE SAID, "THIS IS GONNA TAKE A LITTLE WHILE."

SO I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I'LL GO PICK AND JAMIE, AND I'LL COME RIGHT BACK.

OKAY. YEAH, SURE.


THOUGH JEANNIE'S APPOINTMENT TAKES LONGER THAN SHE EXPECTED, WHEN SHE'S FINISHED, THERE'S NO SIGN OF KATHY.

SHE SENT ME A TEXT AND SAID, "I'M IN LABOR I HAVE TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL."

WITH KATHY AT THE HOSPITAL, JEANNIE IS STUCK.

MY KEYS WAS STILL IN HER CAR.

I JUST LEFT EVERYTHING IN HER CAR BECAUSE SHE SAID SHE WOULD BE BACK.

JEANNIE'S ONLY OPTION IS TO CALL HER BROTHER.

HEY, RICKY, IT'S JEANNIE.

CAN YOU GIVE ME A RIDE?

20 MINUTES IS GOOD.

THREE HOURS AFTER LEAVING HOME THAT MORNING, JEANNIE FINALLY MAKES IT BACK TO THE HOUSE.

THANKS, RICKY.

SHE ASSUMES SINCE KATHY IS AT THE HOSPITAL IN LABOR, SHE MUST HAVE CANCELED HER SHOPPING TRIP WITH JAMIE AND JAMIE WOULD BE WAITING FOR HER AT THE HOUSE.

JAMIE?

JAMIE, HONEY, YOU IN THERE?

I DON'T HAVE MY KEY. CAN YOU LET ME IN?

WHEN I GOT HOME, THERE WAS NOBODY THERE.

AND IT WAS NOT LIKE HER NOT TO LET ME KNOW WHERE SHE WAS.

YEAH, JAMIE, IT'S MAMA.

I'M AT HOME HERE. I CAN'T GET IN.

I DON'T HAVE MY KEY. I NEED YOU TO LET ME IN.

SO YOU CALL ME WHEN YOU GET THIS MESSAGE?

OKAY.

SHE WASN'T THERE.

AND I KEPT SAYING, "JAMIE, YOU NEED TO ANSWER ME."

I WAS CALLING HER, AND SHE WOULDN'T ANSWER.

I'M AT HOME.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK.

WELL, OKAY. THANKS, BYE.

WITH JAMIE SO CLOSE TO HER DUE DATE, SHE COULDN'T HAVE LEFT THE HOUSE EASILY.

JEANNIE FEARS SHE MUST BE INSIDE, UNABLE TO ANSWER THE DOOR.

FINALLY, JAMIE'S STEPFATHER, MIKE, ARRIVES HOME.

HEY.

EVERYTHING OKAY?

I DON'T HAVE ANY KEYS, AND I CAN'T GET A HOLD OF HER.

I'M SURE SHE'S HOME.

JAMIE?

JAMIE, HONEY?

HONEY?

JAMIE?

JAMIE?

JAMIE, HONEY?

MAYBE SHE LEFT A NOTE.

I'LL GO LOOK.

IF SHE'S NOT GONNA BE THERE, SHE WOULD LEAVE ME A NOTE.

NOTHING?

AND SHE ALWAYS HAS.

SHE'S ALWAYS LEFT ME A NOTE AND THERE WAS NO NOTE.

IT'S NOW FIVE HOURS SINCE JEANNIE LAST SAW HER DAUGHTER, AND JAMIE STILL ISN'T ANSWERING HER PHONE.

JAMIE IS JUST FIVE WEEKS FROM GIVING BIRTH, AND HER MOTHER HAS NO IDEA WHERE SHE IS.

AND I KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT.

JEANNIE STICE HAS RETURNED HOME TO FIND HER PREGNANT DAUGHTER, JAMIE, MISSING.

JAMIE?

SO YOU CALL ME WHEN YOU GET THIS MESSAGE?

JAMIE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SHOPPING FOR BABY SUPPLIES WITH HER FRIEND, KATHY.

BUT A FEW HOURS AGO, KATHY TEXTED JEANNIE SAYING SHE'D GONE INTO LABOR AND WAS HEADING TO THE HOSPITAL.

JEANNIE CAN ONLY HOPE THAT JAMIE IS WITH HER.

I SENT KATHY A MESSAGE IN SAYING, "WHERE'S JAMIE?"

WHO IS IT?

IT'S KATHY.

SHE SAID SHE'S AT HOME.

I SAID, "YOUR HOME OR MY HOME?"

SHE SAID, "YOUR HOME."

AND I SAID, "JAMIE'S NOT HERE."

AND SHE SAID, "I DROPPED HER OFF AT HOME."

WITH THAT MESSAGE, JEANNIE'S CONCERN STARTS EDGING TOWARD PANIC.

NOW, SHE HAS NO IDEA WHERE HER DAUGHTER COULD BE.

I CALLED HER FRIENDS.

YEAH, KELLY, WE CAN'T FIND JAMIE.

J.J.? IS JAMIE WITH YOU?

NO MESSAGE AND SHE'S NOT ANSWERING HER PHONE.

YEAH, OKAY. I COULD TRY.

I DON'T KNOW WHO ELSE TO CALL.

AND THEN I GOT ON FACEBOOK.

AND THEN, THAT'S WHEN I STARTED GETTING WORRIED, SAYING, "OKAY, SOMETHING'S WRONG."

FOUR MILES AWAY AT THE BOWLING GREEN MEDICAL CENTER, A WOMAN IS ADMITTED AFTER GIVING BIRTH AT HOME.

DOCTORS AND NURSES BEGIN ROUTINE CHECKS ON BOTH MOTHER AND BABY.

AND THEIR FIRST THOUGHT WOULD BE TO EXAMINE SOMEONE.

SOMEBODY JUST COMES INTO THE HOSPITAL OR THE EMERGENCY ROOM SAYING THEY'VE HAD A BABY, YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY'RE NOT BLEEDING AND SO FORTH.

MORE THAN SIX HOURS HAVE PASSED SINCE JEANNIE LAST SAW HER DAUGHTER.

HELLO?

Jeannie, it's Kathy.

I've had the baby!

A beautiful baby boy.

HEY, KATHY, THAT'S... THAT'S WONDERFUL.

I'M HAPPY.

THAT'S, UM... HAVE YOU HEARD FROM JAMIE?

DID YOU CALL HER?

No reply.

You know, I'm sure she's okay.

Maybe her phone died?

YEAH, SURE.

WELL, CONGRATULATIONS AND ALL.

WE'LL COME VISIT AS SOON AS WE CAN.

That sounds great.

Bye.

OKAY, BYE.

AND I WAS JUST PRAYING TO GOD, TOO, "GOD, PLEASE, LET ME KNOW WHERE SHE'S AT."

BACK AT THE HOSPITAL, MEDICAL STAFF EXAMINING THE MOTHER AFTER A HOME BIRTH DISCOVER SOMETHING DISTURBING.

THERE WAS NO BLOOD. THERE WAS NOTHING.

SHE DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING THAT SPOKE TO THE FACT THAT SHE HAD A BABY.

AND, THERE'S MORE.

IT APPEARED QUICKLY TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM PHYSICIAN THAT THE BABY HAD, ATTACHED, NOT ONLY A PLACENTA, BUT SOME OTHER FEMALE ORGANS.

AND THEY APPEARED TO HAVE BEEN CUT.

THE NEW BABY, A BOY, IS STILL ATTACHED, NOT JUST TO THE UMBILICAL CORD AND PLACENTA BUT ALSO TO THE UTERUS AND OVARIES.

THE MEDICAL STAFF GOT ALARMED AND SUSPICIOUS.

SO PUTTING TWO AND TWO TOGETHER, THEY DID THE VERY RIGHT THING TO CALL THE POLICE AND SAY, "WE HAVE TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON HERE."

JAMIE STICE HAS NOW BEEN MISSING FOR OVER EIGHT HOURS.

JEANNIE HAS CALLED ALL HER DAUGHTER'S FRIENDS AND FACEBOOKED ALL HER ONLINE CONTACTS.

JAMIE, HONEY, IT'S... IT'S MAMA AGAIN.

WE'RE... WE'RE REAL WORRIED.

LISTEN, I... I DON'T WANT TO CALL 911, BUT WHERE ARE YOU?

CALL ME, OKAY? FIND A WAY.

I LOVE YOU.

KENTUCKY STATE POLICE RESPOND TO THE CALL FROM THE BOWLING GREEN MEDICAL STAFF.

DOCTORS ARE CERTAIN THEIR PATIENT HASN'T GIVEN BIRTH.

SO DETECTIVE CHAD WINN'S FIRST JOB IS TO FIND OUT EXACTLY WHERE SHE GOT THE BABY.

SHE TOLD THE POLICE THAT SHE WAS CALLED KATHY COY.

KATHY COY?

I'M DETECTIVE CHAD WINN.

WHERE'S MY BABY?

I WANT TO SEE MY BABY.

HE WAS... HE WAS PREMATURE. IS HE OKAY?

OKAY, NOW, WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO THE DOCTORS.

THEY LOOKED YOU OVER.

THEY SAID YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN BIRTH.

IT'S NOT YOUR CHILD.

NOW, THEY'RE REAL WORRIED ABOUT THE REAL MOTHER.

SO WHY DON'T YOU GO ON AND TELL US WHERE YOU GOT THAT BABY?

HE'S MINE! I GAVE BIRTH AT HOME.

BUT, HE WAS EARLY.

NOW, KATHY, THAT'S NOT TRUE.

TELL ME WHERE YOU GOT THAT BABY.

WHERE, KATHY?

TELL ME WHERE YOU GOT THE BABY!

IF THERE'S A CHANCE OF SAVING THE LIFE OF THE BABY'S REAL MOTHER, THE POLICE NEED TO FIND HER QUICKLY, BUT KATHY COY REFUSES TO COOPERATE.

DETECTIVE WINN TAKES HER TO THE POLICE STATION FOR FURTHER QUESTIONING.

KNOWING THAT TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR THE ACTUAL BIRTH MOTHER, INVESTIGATORS SEARCH KATHY COY'S HOUSE FOR CLUES TO HER IDENTITY.

THEY FIND DUCT TAPE AND A DRYWALL KNIFE.

FINALLY, THEY HIT ON WHAT COULD BE A KEY PIECE OF EVIDENCE.

KATHY COY USED THE INTERNET LOOKING FOR OTHERS THAT WERE PREGNANT.

ON KATHY'S COY'S COMPUTER, POLICE FIND THE FACEBOOK PAGES OF THREE PREGNANT WOMEN, ALL EXPECTING TO GIVE BIRTH AT EXACTLY THE SAME TIME AS KATHY.

OFFICERS ARE QUICKLY DISPATCHED ACROSS THE COUNTY TO TRACK DOWN THE POTENTIAL VICTIMS.

I KNOW.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

JEANNIE IS DESPERATE.

SHE LAST SAW JAMIE 14 HOURS AGO.

ALL THROUGH THAT EVENING, I WAS A NERVOUS WRECK.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK.

THAT'S HER.

I FIGURED SHE'D JUST FORGOTTEN A KEY TO THE DOOR.

INSTEAD, JEANNIE IS CONFRONTED WITH QUESTIONS THAT WILL SOON GIVE WAY TO SHEER HORROR.

ABOUT 11:00 THAT NIGHT IS WHEN THE COPS STARTED KNOCKING ON MY DOOR AND ASKING ME, "WHERE'S JAMIE?"

I HAVEN'T SEEN HER ALL DAY.

I... I DON'T KNOW WHERE SHE IS.

I... I WAS JUST ABOUT TO CALL YOU.

THEN, THEY STARTED ASKING ME QUESTIONS.

YES.

SHE'S FRIENDS WITH KATHY COY.

HAVING ESTABLISHED THAT JEANNIE'S DAUGHTER HAS BEEN MISSING SINCE THAT MORNING AND THAT KATHY COY AND JAMIE HAVE BEEN COMMUNICATING ONLINE, THE OFFICER'S REPORT BACK TO DETECTIVE WINN.

TELL ME ABOUT JAMIE STICE.

WHERE IS SHE? IS THAT HOW YOU GOT THE BABY?

JAMIE STICE? I... I DON'T KNOW JAMIE STICE.

COME ON, KATHY.

WE FOUND HER NAME ON YOUR COMPUTER.

SHE WAS SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT.

WAS THAT HER BABY?

ANSWER ME!

KATHY COY WAS NOT FORTHCOMING WITH THE POLICE OFFICERS.

I... I NEVER...

IT... IT WAS ASHLEY.

ASHLEY KILLED JAMIE.

THAT'S WHERE I GOT THE BABY... FROM ASHLEY.

AND HER STORY CHANGED SEVERAL TIMES.

ALL RIGHT, ASHLEY WHO?

KATHY, WHO'S ASHLEY?

KATHY?

TELL ME WHO ASHLEY IS.

WHERE DO I FIND HER?

THIS STORY JUST BEGAN TO FALL APART AS THE POLICE PRESSED IT.

KATHY, TALK TO ME.

NO.

KATHY, TELL ME WHERE TO FIND ASHLEY.

IT... IT WAS ME.

I'M ASHLEY.

THERE'S... THERE'S NO ASHLEY.

I KILLED JAMIE.

I KILLED JAMIE. I NEEDED THAT BABY.

HE WAS MINE.

YOU DID IT?

YOU MURDERED JAMIE?

I KILLED JAMIE.

WHERE IS SHE?

KATHY COY TELLS POLICE TO SEARCH AN AREA OF ISOLATED WOODLAND OFF STATE HIGHWAY 68.

I DO REMEMBER ONE CHILLING DETAIL.

KATHY COY SAID SOMETHING TO THE OFFICERS WARNING THEM THAT WHAT THEY WERE ABOUT TO SEE WAS GRUESOME.

IT WAS A HORRIFIC SCENE.

THEY FOUND JAMIE STICE.

SHE HAD A LACERATION TO HER THROAT,

AND SHE HAD A LARGE WOUND IN HER ABDOMEN WHERE THE BABY HAD BEEN REMOVED.


I JUST BROKE DOWN.

I JUST BROKE DOWN.

I WANTED TO GO SEE HER, AND THEY TOLD ME I COULDN'T GO SEE HER.

AND IT STILL HURTS.

STILL HURTS BAD.

JAMIE STICE WAS KILLED BY MULTIPLE SHARP FORCE INJURIES.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BABY SHE WAS DUE TO DELIVER IN JUST FIVE WEEKS?

IT'S PRETTY CLEAR THAT KATHY COY HAD NOT THOUGHT THROUGH THE FULL STEPS WITH THE KILLING OF THE MOTHER, THE HEART STOPS.

IF YOU DON'T GET THAT BABY OUT QUICKLY, YOU CAN LOSE THE BABY.

I KILLED JAMIE.

IN BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY, KATHY COY HAS CONFESSED TO KILLING JAMIE STICE AND CUTTING HER UNBORN BABY OUT OF HER.

DETECTIVES SOON REALIZE THIS WAS NO SPUR-OF-THE-MOMENT ATTACK.

IT WAS OBVIOUS THAT THIS WAS PREMEDITATED, THAT KATHY COY HAD PLANNED THIS.

SHE HAD GONE TO EXTRAORDINARY LENGTHS WITH HER PLAN FROM... IT SOUNDS LIKE, FROM EARLY ON.

INVESTIGATORS DISCOVER KATHY COY WAS NEVER ACTUALLY PREGNANT AND HAD CAREFULLY REELED IN JAMIE OVER THE PAST MONTH.

SHE ACTUALLY HAD A FACEBOOK PAGE, WOULD GO ON LOOKING FOR PREGNANT MOMS.

SHE HAD ALSO STOLEN A SONOGRAM TO PROVE THAT SHE WAS PREGNANT.

SHE HAD EVEN GONE SO FAR AS TO LOOK UP ON THE INTERNET HOW TO PERFORM A C-SECTION.

KATHY COY'S NEXT STEP WAS TO ACQUIRE THE EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO CARRY OUT THE HORRIFIC ATTACK.

SHE HAD ALSO BOUGHT, A FEW DAYS BEFORE THIS, A STUN GUN.

SHE ALSO MAKES IN HER LITTLE KIT, IF YOU WILL, HER ABDUCTOR KIT, KNIVES.

THERE WERE TWO KNIVES THAT WERE FOUND.

ONE WAS A DRYWALL KNIFE.

NOW FULLY PREPARED, ALL KATHY COY NEEDED WAS TO GET CLOSE TO HER CHOSEN VICTIM.

KATHY COY WAS VERY CLEVER.

SHE WAS VERY MANIPULATIVE.

SHE REALLY DID INTERJECT HERSELF INTO THE FAMILY.

KNOCK, KNOCK. SPEAK OF THE DEVIL.

HEY, Y'ALL. I KNOW.

HOW ARE YOU?

AND THEY WERE SO DESPERATE.

THIS IS JUST FOR YOU, JEANNIE.

THAT'S JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING TO HELP.

SHE PREYED ON THE VULNERABILITY AND GOT THEM TO TRUST HER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'D DO WITHOUT YOU AROUND.

SO SHE HIT ALL OF THE BUTTONS...

ALL OF THE RIGHT BUTTONS IN THIS FAMILY.

FINALLY, ON APRIL 13th, 2011, KATHY COY'S MONSTROUS PLAN CAME TOGETHER.

ON THE DAY OF THE CRIME, SHE SEPARATED THE MOTHER FROM JAMIE BY TAKING HER TO THE DISABILITY OFFICE.

THEN, GOES BACK, GETS JAMIE...

HEY.

YOU WANT TO GO NOW?

AND THEN, THE CRIME STARTS.

THE MOTIVE FOR KATHY COY'S UNIMAGINABLE PLOT SEEMS TO STEM FROM ONE EVENT, HER SECOND HUSBAND, SHANNON, HAD RECENTLY LEFT HER.

THE PLOY WE OFTEN SEE IN THESE TYPES OF SITUATIONS IS TO REKINDLE A FAILING RELATIONSHIP.

AND THIS WOULD BE, IN HER MIND, THE STRONGEST WAY TO BE ABLE TO PULL HIM BACK.

AFTER CUTTING BABY ISAIAH OUT OF JAMIE STICE, KATHY COY CALMLY DROVE TO A FRIEND'S HOUSE.

HEY, JENNY, DO YOU THINK YOU COULD TAKE A PICTURE OF ME AND BABY SO I CAN SEND IT TO SHANNON?

SHE WANTED TO GET HIM BACK, AND WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO SAY, "HERE'S YOUR BABY."

AND SENDS HIM A PICTURE.

ALL SHE WANTED WAS THAT BABY.

DIDN'T MATTER THAT SHE KILLED JAMIE.

THE BABY WAS THE WHOLE GOAL.

BUT THE ODDS OF BABY ISAIAH SURVIVING THE VICIOUS ATTACK THAT KILLED JAMIE ARE NOT GOOD.

HE WAS CUT FROM HIS MOTHER WITH A DRYWALL KNIFE, AND HE WASN'T EVEN DUE TO BE BORN FOR ANOTHER FIVE WEEKS.


I FEEL HEARTBROKEN THAT HIS MOM'S NOT HERE TO RAISE HIM.

WHEN JEANNIE TOLD ME THAT ISAIAH HAD SURVIVED, IT WAS A MIRACLE.

I KNOW THAT JAMIE HAD A PART TO DO WITH IT BECAUSE SHE LOVED HIM SO MUCH THAT HE SURVIVED AND SHE DIDN'T.

WHY DOES THAT HAPPEN TO SUCH AN INNOCENT SOUL?

I LOVED HER TO THE MOON AND BACK AND WOULD HAVE GLADLY, WITHOUT EVEN A THOUGHT, WOULD HAVE TAKEN HER PLACE SO THAT SHE WOULD BE HERE WITH HER BABY.

IN MARCH 2012, KATHY COY APPEARS IN COURT BEFORE JUDGE JOHN GRISE.

THIS WAS AS DRAMATIC AND CHILLING A CRIME AS I'VE SEEN.

HOW DO YOU PLEA TO COUNT ONE, MURDER, COUNT TWO, KIDNAPPING, AND COUNT THREE, KIDNAPPING OF THE INDICTED?

BY PLEADING GUILTY BUT MENTALLY ILL, KATHY COY SAVES HERSELF FROM THE DEATH PENALTY.

SHE IS SENTENCED TO LIFE WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE.

I FEEL LIKE SHE WAS CHEATED.

SHE WAS CHEATED OUT OF BEING A MOM.

HE HAS TO BE RAISED WITHOUT HIS MAMA, AND THAT HURTS MY HEART.

AND WE'RE GONNA DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO LET HIM KNOW WHO SHE IS AND WHAT SHE WAS LIKE...

THAT SHE REALLY WANTED HIM BAD.

NOBODY CAN TAKE... AWAY THE PERSON SHE WAS.

I MISS HER BAD.
