Web of Lies S4E1 Script

People You May Know (2017)

Narrator: A SERIES OF YOUNG WOMEN...

Parker: I WAS THRILLED.

I CAUGHT SOMEONE'S EYE.

MEET THEIR DREAM GUY ON THE INTERNET.

LOOK AT THIS HOTTIE TALKING TO ME.

BUT IS THEIR PRINCE ALL THAT HE SEEMS?

I WASN'T DRUNK. I --

I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN THAT DRUNK.

OH, MY GOSH. THIS IS NOT OKAY.

THIS CASE WAS VERY DIFFICULT BECAUSE THE INTERNET IS A VERY BIG PLACE.

Narrator: OR IS SOMEONE LYING?

HE WAS ON TOP OF ME.

I -- I KNOW IT WAS HIM.

HE SHOWED ABSOLUTELY NO REMORSE.

[ Gasping ]

HE IS A PREDATOR OF THE FIRST ORDER.

STOP THIS! STOP!

OKAY, RIGHT.

Narrator: LORIANNA PARKER'S LIFE HAS JUST BEEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.

[ BABY GURGLES ]

SEVEN DAYS AGO SHE BECAME A MOM FOR THE FIRST TIME.

LORIANNA AND HER BABY SON, RAYDEN, LIVE IN A SUBURB OF TULSA.

HE'S GOOD.

YOU KNOW, HE'S BEEN SLEEPING A LOT TODAY, HAVEN'T YOU?

THAT'S MY BOY.

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON.

HER PARTNER, RODNEY, IS A WELDER.

AND HE'S WORKING AWAY FROM HOME IN EAST LANSING, MICHIGAN, 900 MILES AWAY.

HOW YOU DOING, SWEETHEART?

OH, YOU KNOW. EXHAUSTED.

Parker: RAYDEN WAS ACTUALLY DUE ON APRIL 18.

AND THAT'S WHEN WE HAD PLANNED THAT RODNEY WAS GONNA BE COMING DOWN.

INSTEAD, RAYDEN MADE IT INTO THIS WORLD ON APRIL 5th.

SINCE APRIL 5, WE WERE CONSTANTLY VIDEO CHATTING BACK AND FORTH.

IT WAS ALL THAT WE HAD.

YOU THINK HE RECOGNIZES MY VOICE YET?

OF COURSE, HE DOES.

Narrator: HAVING MISSED THE BIRTH OF HIS SON, RODNEY IS EAGER TO BOND WITH HIS NEW FAMILY.

IT WAS LIKE HE COULD HAVE JUMPED OUT OF THE PHONE BECAUSE YOU KNEW HOW BAD HE WANTED TO BE THERE.

YOU KNOW WHAT? I THINK HE'S TIRED.

I'M GONNA PUT HIM DOWN FOR A NAP.

I'LL CALL YOU BACK, OKAY?

YEAH, SURE.

LORIANNA AND RODNEY HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR 4 YEARS.

YOU KNOW, I FEEL LIKE OUR LITTLE FAMILY IS COMPLETE NOW, YOU KNOW?

COMPLETE WITH JUST ONE?

THAT'S ENOUGH, I GUESS, FOR NOW.

OKAY.

RODNEY WAS VERY GENUINE, HUGE-HEARTED.

HE MADE YOU FEEL GOOD.

YOU KNOW THAT'S WHAT I WANT, TO MAKE YOU HAPPY.

I KNOW.

Piguet: RODNEY TREATED HER LIKE A PRINCESS.

HE'D BUY HER THINGS. THEY'D GO OUT ALL THE TIME.

THEY'D STAY UP ALL NIGHT TALKING.

HE WAS JUST PERFECT FOR HER.

Narrator: BUT THE LIFE THAT THE COUPLE HAD PLANNED TOGETHER WAS NOT MEANT TO BE.

WHY?

YEAH, I GET IT. WHY?

WHY DO I HAVE TO CALL HER?

I GOT A CALL FROM A FRIEND IN MICHIGAN THAT I HAD MADE.

AND SHE SAID, "YOU NEED TO GET A HOLD OF RODNEY'S MOM NOW."

OKAY. YEAH.

YES. YES, I'LL CALL HER RIGHT NOW.

YES... OKAY.

I'LL -- I'LL TALK TO YOU LATER.

BYE.

CALLED HER UP, AND SHE WAS IN...

"WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU TALKED TO RODNEY?"

UM, LAST NIGHT?

THEN YOU DON'T KNOW?

K-- KNOW? KNOW WHAT?

"RODNEY PASSED AWAY IN A CAR ACCIDENT LAST NIGHT."

NO, I -- I TALKED TO HIM LAST NIGHT.

I THOUGHT IT WAS A LIE.

"I HAD TALKED TO HIM HOURS AGO, LAST NIGHT.

THERE'S NO WAY THAT HE'S GONE."

WHAT?

[ Sobs ]

NO!

[ Sobbing ] NO!

NO!

NO! [ Sobbing continues ]

NO!

[ Screams, sobbing ]

EVERYTHING WAS SUCH A BLUR.

I WAS SO CONFUSED.

I SCREAMED WHAT FELT, LIKE, FOR HOURS AND HOURS.

LORIANNA WAS DEVASTATED.

I MEAN, THAT WAS HER LIFE.

I MEAN, IT WAS HER SON'S FATHER.

SHE...

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT SHE WAS GONNA DO.

I WAS JUST AS SPEECHLESS AND SHOCKED.

Parker: I NEVER THOUGHT 9 DAYS AFTER HAVING A CHILD, I WOULD WAKE UP.

AND I WOULD SAY, "I'M DOING THIS BY MYSELF."

YOU'RE OKAY.

YOU OPEN YOUR EYES A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENTLY.

YOU REALIZE THAT THIS LITTLE BOY ONLY HAS YOU.

I HAD PUSHED EVERYONE AWAY.

AND HALF THE TIME I DIDN'T EVEN WANT MY FAMILY AROUND.

IT WAS HARD BECAUSE NOBODY HAS, IN MY FAMILY, LOST SOMEONE THE WAY I LOST SOMEBODY.

Narrator: BUT WITHIN A MONTH OF RODNEY'S DEATH, LORIANNA IS DETERMINED TO PULL HERSELF TOGETHER AND GIVE RAYDEN THE BEST POSSIBLE START IN LIFE.

WHILE HER MOM BABYSITS, SHE GETS A JOB AS A MEDICAL ASSISTANT.

GOOD MORNING. YOU'RE NEXT.

Piguet: SHE'S JUST VERY ENERGETIC.

SHE LIGHTS UP A ROOM.

SO THIS IS YOUR NEW INHALER WE HAVE FOR YOU.

SHE'S VERY CARING AND COMPASSIONATE.

AND PATIENTS LOVE HER.

OH, OKAY. GREAT.

THE MEDICAL FIELD WAS JUST PERFECT FOR HER.

Narrator: EAGER TO BOOST HER CAREER PROSPECTS, EVERY NIGHT AFTER WORK, LORIANNA ATTENDS CLASSES AT TULSA COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO STUDY RESPIRATORY THERAPY.

Parker: IT WAS VERY HARD TO KNOW THAT RAYDEN MAY NOT SEE ME DURING THE DAY AT ALL.

BUT I ALSO KNEW THAT GOING TO SCHOOL MEANT THAT I WAS GIVING HIM MORE IN THE FUTURE.

Narrator: TWO YEARS AFTER RODNEY'S DEATH, LORIANNA FEELS SHE'S READY TO MOVE ON.

Lorianna: I DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO DATE AGAIN.

AND I WAS GONNA MEET PEOPLE.

I WAS GONNA FINALLY GET OUT THERE.

Narrator: SHE USES A SOCIAL MEDIA DATING APP TO CONNECT WITH MEN AND ARRANGE DATES.

Piguet: I WAS GLAD THAT SHE WAS TRYING TO HAVE A LIFE AGAIN.

I KNOW IT'S HARD WITH A BABY AND CAREER AND SCHOOL.

BUT I WAS GLAD FOR HER.

I MEAN, SHE NEEDED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

Narrator: BUT ANY POTENTIAL PARTNER HAS A LOT TO LIVE UP TO.

IF THEY DIDN'T MATCH HIS STANDARDS, AND IF THEY DIDN'T ACT LIKE RODNEY, THEN I WAS AUTOMATICALLY LIKE "NOPE, THIS ONE'S NOT FOR ME."

AND DID YOU SEE HIM? OH, MY GOSH.

OKAY, SHOW ME. CAN YOU SEE HIM?

YEAH, I'M ZOOMING -- I'M ZOOMING!

ZOOM IN! OKAY, I'M GOING.

THIS PHONE IS OLD.

Ramos: SHE'D MEET A COUPLE OF THEM.

AND, LIKE, THE NEXT DAY SHE'D TELL ME THINGS SHE WOULDN'T LIKE ABOUT THEM.

AND I'D BE LIKE, "THAT'S, LIKE, SMALL STUFF, YOU KNOW?

YOU SHOULDN'T BE, LIKE, THAT PICKY.

AND YOU SHOULDN'T BE, LIKE, COMPARING THEM TO RODNEY."

Narrator: BUT 1 MONTH LATER, EVERYTHING CHANGES.

ON JANUARY 8, I WAS FLIPPING THROUGH FACEBOOK ON MY PHONE.

I WENT BACK AND FORTH ON PEOPLE THAT I MAY KNOW.

THEN HIS NAME POPPED UP...

COREY DAVIS.

HE IS SUPER HOT.

AND WE HAVE MUTUAL FRIENDS?

THIS IS A WIN-WIN.

WE'RE BOUND TO KNOW EACH OTHER.

Narrator: COREY DAVIS IS 26.

AND HE'S GOT PLENTY OF FRIENDS.

HE'S MR. POPULAR.

Parker: I NEVER THOUGHT, "I'M GONNA GO AHEAD AND FRIEND REQUEST THIS GUY."

I JUST THOUGHT, "IF HE REMEMBERED ME, HE'LL FRIEND REQUEST ME THEN."

THE FOLLOWING DAY, I GOT A FACEBOOK REQUEST FROM COREY DAVIS.


I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT COREY DAVIS WAS MESSAGING ME, JUST AN AVERAGE GIRL, WHILE COREY DAVIS IS THIS SUPER ATTRACTIVE GUY.

SO THEY GRABBED A MANNEQUIN AND ATTACHED IT TO A BICYCLE, DROVE IT DOWN A HILL, SMASHED INTO A BUILDING IN FRONT OF A CROWD OF PEOPLE.

[ Laughter ] [ PHONE VIBRATES ]

HOLD ON.

Parker: HE TOLD ME THAT HE SAW ME GOING TO CLASS AT TULSA COMMUNITY COLLEGE.

AND I WAS THRILLED.

LIKE, I CAUGHT SOMEONE'S EYE.

AND HE REMEMBERED ME.

Narrator: COREY TELLS LORIANNA HE USED TO WORK AS A MODEL.

BUT NOW, HE'S LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW IN TULSA.

Parker: WE TALKED FOR HOURS BACK AND FORTH ON FACEBOOK MESSENGER.

IT WAS LIKE I HAD FOUND A BRAND-NEW BEST FRIEND.

I WOULD TEXT COREY IN THE MORNING WHEN I WOULD WAKE UP.

OH, SORRY!

I WOULD TEXT COREY WHILE I WAS PUTTING ON MAKEUP.

I WOULD TEXT COREY WHILE I WAS AT WORK.

I WOULD TEXT COREY WHILE I WAS EATING.

I WAS ALWAYS TEXTING COREY.

TWENTY BUCKS! I'M SORRY.

I'LL TAKE, UH, CASH, CREDIT, CHECK, UH, FOOD STAMPS, MONEY ORDER.

IT'S TOTALLY UP TO YOU GUYS.

Narrator: AFTER 21/2 WEEKS, COREY INVITES LORIANNA TO HANG OUT WITH HIM AND HIS FRIENDS.

COME ON. THANK YOU.

I SAID, "YES." I WAS LIKE, "LET'S HANG OUT."

LIKE, "LET'S GO OUT."

I'M FINALLY GONNA GET A SOCIAL LIFE AGAIN.

AND THIS IS GONNA BE GREAT.

I GOT REALLY EXCITED.

Narrator: BUT LORIANNA'S DREAM DATE WILL BE FAR FROM WHAT SHE EXPECTS.

Proehl-Day: YOU DON'T EXPECT BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE TO BE EVIL.

THAT'S WHY NONE OF THESE GIRLS STOOD A CHANCE.

Narrator: SINGLE MOM LORIANNA PARKER HAS ARRANGED TO HANG OUT WITH COREY DAVIS, A GUY SHE MET ON FACEBOOK.

BUT ON THE DAY OF THEIR FIRST DATE, NERVOUS TENSION GETS THE BETTER OF HER.

I TEXTED COREY TO LET HIM KNOW THAT I HAD GOTTEN SUPER SICK.

HE GOT VERY UPSET WITH ME THINKING THAT I WAS LYING TO HIM.

I FELT TERRIBLE BECAUSE ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS MEET HIM.

BUT NOW I'M A BAD PERSON BECAUSE I GOT SICK.

AND HE DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ME FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT.

Narrator: LORIANNA HEARS NOTHING FROM COREY UNTIL NOON THE NEXT DAY.

Parker: WE MADE UP.

AND EVERYTHING WAS OKAY.

I KNOW.

HE SAID, "PEOPLE ARE GONNA START GETTING THERE AROUND 10, 10:30."

AND, "OKAY. EASY.

THAT'S WHAT I'LL DO."

Narrator: LORIANNA LEAVES HER SON WITH HER MOTHER AND HEADS FOR COREY'S PLACE IN NORTH TULSA.

Parker: HE GAVE ME THE ADDRESS TO THE APARTMENT.

HE SAID, "GO AHEAD AND GPS IT.

BUT YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO CALL ME BECAUSE THE SPEAKER ON MY PHONE IS MESSED UP.

SO YOU CAN ONLY TEXT ME."

Narrator: BUT LORIANNA'S GPS ISN'T WORKING EITHER.

WHEN SHE REACHES NORTH TULSA, SHE GETS LOST.

I TEXTED COREY AND LET HIM KNOW THAT I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE I WAS AT.

AND I'M NOW RUNNING LATE.

COREY TOLD ME HE LEFT FROM THE APARTMENT TO GO PICK UP SOME OF HIS FRIENDS AND PICK UP SOME FOOD, BUT NOT TO WORRY BECAUSE HIS ROOMMATE, ASHLEY, AND HIS SON WOULD BE THERE AT THE DOOR FOR ME.

I WAS FURIOUS. I THOUGHT, "HE'S GETTING BACK AT ME TO MAKE ME MAD.

SO HE'S GONNA END UP CANCELING ON ME NOW."

Narrator: EVENTUALLY, LORIANNA FINDS HER WAY TO COREY'S APARTMENT BUILDING.

HI. HEY! I'M ASHLEY.

OH, I'M LORIANNA. GOOD TO MEET YOU.

NICE TO MEET YOU. AND WHO'S THIS GUY?

DANIEL. DANIEL, NICE TO MEET YOU!

HOW OLD ARE YOU? FIVE.

FIVE, WOW!

COREY JUST STEPPED OUT. HE'LL BE BACK IN A FEW MINUTES.

YEAH, HE MENTIONED THAT.

IT -- IT'S OKAY. IT'S NOT A PROBLEM.

DID YOU WANT TO GO UPSTAIRS AND WAIT FOR HIM THERE?

YEAH, THAT SOUNDS GREAT.

YEAH? SO BIG!

[ Laughs ] YEAH.

NICE PLACE.

DADDY, LOOK WHAT I DID! WHAT'S...

Narrator: LORIANNA IS AN INSTANT HIT WITH LITTLE DANIEL.

SEE MY TOYS! SEE YOUR TOYS?

Parker: I GO INTO THE APARTMENT ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

AND IT SEEMS LIKE YOUR NORMAL BACHELOR PAD.

DID YOU DRAW THIS? YES.

OH, WOW. IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

THAT'S A FISH? YES.

YOU DID THIS ALL BY YOURSELF? YES!

AND HE WANTED ME TO WATCH TV WITH HIM.

AND HE WANTED TO SIT ON THE COUCH WITH ME.

WHAT ARE WE WATCHING?

TV. TV.

Parker: HE WAS A GOOD KID.

SO IT'S YOU, DANIEL AND COREY SHARING THIS APARTMENT?

YEAH.

DANIEL'S MOM LEFT. REALLY?

SAID SHE WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH HAVING A SON.

I'M SORRY. THAT -- THAT'S TOO BAD.

SO DOES DANIEL GO TO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL?

YEAH.

HE'S REALLY GOOD WITH HIS SCHOOLWORK.

YEAH?

AND HE'S -- HE'S A PRETTY FAST KID.

Parker: ASHLEY SEEMED LIKE A REALLY GOOD DAD.

HE WAS SUPER NICE.

I COULD HAVE TALKED TO ASHLEY ALL NIGHT LONG.

DO YOU LIKE SCHOOL, DANIEL?

DOES HE HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS?

I GUESS SO. HE'S A PRETTY POPULAR KID.

RIGHT, DANIEL?

RIGHT?

Davis: MATT, ARE YOU SURE YOU CAN CARRY ALL THOSE?

WHY'D WE GET A PINEAPPLE?

FRUIT DOESN'T GO ON PIZZA!

Parker: I WAS NOW UPSET WITH COREY.

AND I DIDN'T EVEN REALLY WANT TO GO OUT ANY MORE.

IF ANY OF YOU GUYS DROP ANY OF THAT PIZZA, I'M GONNA DROP ONE OF YOU.

[ RAP MUSIC PLAYS ]

I TALKED TO ASHLEY SOME MORE WHILE TEXTING BACK AND FORTH WITH COREY.

COREY TOLD ME THAT I JUST NEEDED TO TAKE A DRINK, SO THAT WAY I COULD JUST LOOSEN UP.

WOULD YOU LIKE A SHOT? YOU KNOW WHAT?

YEAH. I'LL TAKE A DRINK.

I ONLY HAVE VODKA.

YOU DON'T MIND? NO, THAT'S FINE. THANK YOU.

I SHOULDN'T BE SAYIN' THIS BUT YOU SHOULDN'T GET YOUR HOPES TOO HIGH WITH COREY.

OH. YEAH.

HE'S A GOOD GUY AND EVERYTHING.

BUT HE'S NOT THE MOST RELIABLE PERSON.

I -- I THINK I NEED THIS.

CHEERS.

Parker: ASHLEY TOLD ME THAT "MORE THAN LIKELY, HE'S NOT WITH GUY FRIENDS.

HE'S PROBABLY WITH GIRL FRIENDS.

AND THAT'S PROBABLY WHY HE'S LATE."

WE'VE NEVER MADE IT THIS FAR.

SO WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER HERE.

YOU GO BEHIND.

Parker: I CONTINUED TO TEXT COREY.

AND HE TOLD ME NOW, THEY'RE PLAYING VIDEO GAMES.

SO IT'S GONNA BE LONGER UNTIL HE'S THERE.

YEAH, RICKY!

OH, ATTABOY.

I'VE GOTTEN SO UPSET AND MAD.

HE'S PLAYING VIDEO GAMES. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS!

Ashley: THAT'S SO COREY.

DOES IT TO EVERYBODY.

I HAD POSTED ON FACEBOOK ABOUT HOW COREY DAVIS IS A DOUCHEBAG.

I WAS SO MAD.

I'VE HAD MY HOPES UP TO MEET THIS MAN.

AND NOW, HE'S BLOWING ME OFF.

WANT ANOTHER ONE? YEAH, SURE.

CHEERS. CHEERS.

I'VE NOW SAT THERE FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF TALKING.

"JUST GIVE ME ANOTHER DRINK." YOU GOT NO CHANCE, OKAY?

NO CHANCE. NO CHANCE.

CHEATERS! CHEATING!

Parker: BY 12, MY WHOLE CHEST WAS HEAVY.

AND MY EYES WERE HEAVY.

AND I COULD FEEL MY BODY JUST WEAK.

I COULD HAVE JUST CLOSED MY EYES AND JUST WENT TO SLEEP FOR DAYS.

Ashley: HEY, BUDDY. IT'S TIME TO GO TO SLEEP.

COME ON.

[ CRYING ]

Parker: WHEN I WOKE UP AGAIN, I WAS LAYING ON A MATTRESS ON A FLOOR WITH A MAN ABOVE ME.

AND ALL I COULD THINK OF WAS, "IF I LET HIM KNOW THAT I'M AWAKE, AND THAT I KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING, I'M GONNA DIE."

Narrator: LORIANNA PARKER HAD ARRANGED TO HOOK UP WITH COREY DAVIS, A GUY SHE MET THROUGH FACEBOOK.

INSTEAD, SHE MEETS HIS ROOMMATE, ASHLEY.

THEY DRINK SHOTS TOGETHER.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT IS A BLUR.

Parker: I WOKE UP. AND IT WAS 2:13 IN THE MORNING.

I WAS CONFUSED.

I'M IN A PAIR OF BASKETBALL SHORTS THAT AREN'T MINE, I DON'T HAVE A SHIRT ON, AND THE ONLY THING I THINK OF IS, "I HAVE TO LEAVE.

AND I HAVE TO LEAVE NOW."

HEY.

WHERE YOU GOING?

I -- I'VE JUST GOT TO GET HOME.

WE HAD SO MUCH FUN LAST NIGHT.

IT'S LIKE WE REALLY CONNECTED, YOU KNOW?

YEAH. OKAY.

AM I GONNA GET TO SEE YOU AGAIN?

I'LL, UH, I'LL GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT.

GET HOME SAFE.

Parker: I'M THINKING, "WHAT JUST HAPPENED BETWEEN YOU AND I?"

[ PHONE RINGS ]

THERE WAS JUST SO MUCH CONFUSION.

Narrator: LATER THAT MORNING, LORIANNA STRUGGLES TO REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED.

Parker: ALL I COULD THINK OF WAS, "WHAT ALL DID I SAY?

WHAT ALL DID I DO?

DID WHAT I THINK AND WHAT I SEE NOT REALLY HAPPEN?"

AGAIN, HE'S TELLING ME HOW WE HAD AN AWESOME NIGHT.

AND EVERYTHING'S GREAT.

AND HE'S SO SORRY THAT COREY DIDN'T SHOW UP.

I'M TELLING HIM, "I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU REMEMBER.

BUT FROM WHAT I REMEMBER OF THE NIGHT WHAT HAPPENED ISN'T WHAT I DO."

ASHLEY TOLD ME WHAT HAPPENED TO COREY AND WHY HE DIDN'T SHOW UP.

COREY HAD GOTTEN PULLED OVER FOR SPEEDING AND HE WAS THROWN IN JAIL FOR OUTSTANDING TICKETS AND WARRANTS.

I SAID, "I REALLY DIDN'T CARE ANYMORE."

ASHLEY SAID, "WELL YOU CAN'T FORGET, THIS WAS YOUR IDEA TOO, THOUGH.

GOING TO THE BEDROOM WAS MY IDEA."

I WAS THE ONE WHO CAME ONTO HIM.

I HAD FINALLY GOTTEN SO MAD AT ASHLEY FOR SAYING HOW ALL THIS WAS MY FAULT.

TO WHERE I SAID, "I DON'T CARE ABOUT COREY.

I'M DONE TALKING TO BOTH OF YOU."

OKAY. SO I'VE CHECKED UP ON DONALD...

MM-HMM. ...AND ROBERT AND LILY.

OKAY.

AND THEN I'M GONNA GET TO SANDRA AND RICK.

OKAY. GREAT, YEAH. IS THAT OKAY?

YEAH. OKAY.

LET ME JUST CHECK MY PHONE.

UM, ARE THEY IN A DIFFERENT ROOM NOW?

I THINK SO, I JUST CHECKED... OKAY.

Parker: I RECEIVED A TEXT FROM COREY. HE'S COMPLETELY MAD.

HE FOUND OUT WHAT HAPPENED, AND THAT I'VE HAD SEX WITH ASHLEY.

LORIANNA?

Narrator: COREY TELLS HER THAT HE DID RETURN TO THE APARTMENT THE NIGHT THEY HAD PLANNED TO MEET.

Ramon: HE SAYS THAT HE FOUND THEM IN THE BED, AND THAT HE'D LEFT.

AND THAT'S WHY HE WASN'T THERE IN THE MORNING.

SO HE SAYS THAT HE WAS JUST REALLY UPSET.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, ANGRY. AND HE WAS, LIKE, "WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?

I THOUGHT YOU LIKED ME."

WHAT'S GOING ON?

Ramon: COREY WOULD TELL LORIANNA THAT SHE WAS A BITCH.

HE WOULD TELL HER THAT SHE WAS A WHORE.

THEN HE WOULD TELL HER THAT SHE WAS A SLUT BECAUSE SHE WAS SLEEPING AROUND WITH HIS ROOMMATE.

OH, MY GOSH.

LORIANNA, THIS IS TERRIBLE!

I HAD FELT SO IMPORTANT WITH COREY DAYS AGO...

...TO NOW, FEELING LIKE I'M SCUM.

Narrator: THAT EVENING, LORIANNA IS BOMBARDED WITH MESSAGES.


[ PHONE CHIMES ]

STOP THIS! STOP!

Parker: I BLOCK ASHLEY OFF FACEBOOK.

I TELL COREY THAT I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT THIS ANYMORE.

I DON'T WANT A PART OF THIS. I AM DONE.

AND FINALLY, IT STOPPED.

HE KEPT TELLING ME, UM, "GO AHEAD.

T-- DRINK. ASKING ME TO DRINK, LOOSEN UP."

Narrator: TWO WEEKS EARLIER, A WOMAN APPEARS AT THE TULSA POLICE DEPARTMENT.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU REMEMBER?

MY MEMORY IS PRETTY FUZZY.

I -- I DRANK SOME SHOTS.

Murphy: SHE'D MET A GENTLEMAN ONLINE NAMED COREY DAVIS.

BUT COREY DAVIS DID NOT SHOW UP.

AND THE NEXT THING SHE REMEMBERED WAS WAKING UP THE FOLLOWING MORNING ON THE COUCH IN THE APARTMENT.

AND SHE FELT SOMETHING HAD HAPPENED TO HER SEXUALLY.

AND SHE WAS ASSAULTED.

Narrator: THE VICTIM'S INABILITY TO REMEMBER WHAT HAD HAPPENED AND WHO HAD ASSAULTED HER IS A HUGE CHALLENGE.

SO WE'RE GONNA ASK YOU TO TAKE A TEST, OKAY?

IT'S A SEXUAL ASSAULT EXAMINATION.

Murphy: WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR IN A SEXUAL ASSAULT EXAM ARE THINGS LIKE DNA AND ACTUAL INJURIES, BLOOD OR SEMINAL FLUID.

ANYTHING THAT CAN HELP US LINK THE VICTIM BACK TO THE SUSPECT.

Narrator: BUT THE VICTIM REPORTED THE ASSAULT

2 DAYS AFTER IT HAD HAPPENED, TOO LATE TO FIND ANY EVIDENCE OF RAPE.

OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS, TWO OTHER WOMEN COME FORWARD.

THEY ALSO WENT TO MEET COREY DAVIS AT HIS APARTMENT.

Proehl-Day: EACH WOMAN TALKED ABOUT THE SAME EXACT THING.

WHEN THEY ARRIVED, COREY DAVIS WAS NEVER THERE.

BUT HIS ROOMMATE, ASHLEY PULLEN, WAS THERE, USUALLY WITH HIS 5-YEAR-OLD SON.

THEY WOULD CONSUME ALCOHOL, UM, WITH ASHLEY PULLEN.

IT WAS USUALLY TWO SHOTS.

AND THEN AFTER THE SECOND SHOT, THEY COULDN'T REMEMBER ANYTHING.

NOW, THEY HAVE THIS FEELING THAT THEY'VE HAD SEX.

BUT THEY CAN'T RECALL IT.

Narrator: ALL THE VICTIMS COME FORWARD TOO LATE FOR A RAPE TEST TO BE EFFECTIVE.

YOU HAVE THREE FEMALES WHO COME FORWARD, WHO ARE ARTICULATING THAT THEY BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE RAPED.

UNFORTUNATELY, EVEN THOUGH THE POLICE BELIEVE THEM, THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO GO ON THAT.

Narrator: TWO NAMES ARE MENTIONED IN EVERY ACCOUNT --

COREY DAVIS AND ASHLEY PULLEN.

BUT NONE OF THE VICTIMS CAN POSITIVELY IDENTIFY WHO RAPED THEM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED AT ALL.

Narrator: FOUR WEEKS LATER, POLICE GET THE BREAKTHROUGH THEY'VE BEEN HOPING FOR.

Proehl-Day: THE FOURTH FEMALE COMES FORWARD AND IS ABLE TO PROVIDE THE INFORMATION TO THE OFFICERS THAT THEY NEED AS IN --

THAT A SEXUAL ACT ACTUALLY DID OCCUR.

SO TELL ME AGAIN.

YOU WOKE UP DURING THE ACTUAL ASSAULT?

YES. HE -- HE WAS --

HE WAS ON TOP OF ME.

I -- I KNOW IT WAS HIM.

YOU'RE SURE IT WAS ASHLEY.

I'M 100% SURE IT WAS ASHLEY PULLEN.

YO, COME ON, GUYS. I- I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

YO, THIS IS HARASSMENT!

Narrator: WHEN POLICE ARREST ASHLEY PULLEN...

THEY CONDUCT A SERIES OF BACKGROUND CHECKS.

ASHLEY PULLEN DID HAVE HISTORY.

HE WAS DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED FROM THE MILITARY IN THE EARLY 2000S FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT ON ANOTHER FEMALE MILITARY MEMBER.

Narrator: BUT WHEN INVESTIGATORS QUESTION ASHLEY, THEY SOON DISCOVER HE IS UNUSUALLY DEVIOUS.

JUST ANSWER THE QUESTION, PLEASE.

I AM ANSWERING YOUR QUESTIONS.

Murphy: HE WAS VERY EVASIVE, VERY MANIPULATIVE.

AND HE WOULD WANT JUST LITTLE SNIPPETS OF INFORMATION PRIOR TO ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS.

HE WANTED TO KNOW WHAT I KNEW AS AN INVESTIGATOR AND HOW MUCH INFORMATION I HAD.

YOU SEARCHED MY APARTMENT, RIGHT?

WHAT DID YOU FIND? YOU TELL ME.

YOU'RE THE DETECTIVE.

YOU EVER SEXUALLY ASSAULTED A WOMAN?

NEVER. YOU KNOW, I HAD ONE COME OVER.

YOU KNOW, WE HAD A DRINKS.

SHE GOT A LITTLE TIPSY.

AND, YEAH, WE HAD SEX. BUT SHE WANTED IT.

IT WAS CONSENSUAL.

Murphy: I QUESTIONED MR. PULLEN ABOUT SEVERAL VICTIMS.

AND HE WOULD ONLY ADMIT TO --

TO HAVING A CONSENSUAL SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE OF THOSE VICTIMS.

Narrator: NONE OF THE VICTIMS CAN RECALL WHAT HAPPENED IN DETAIL.

AND DNA TESTS FAIL TO LINK ANY OF THEM TO ASHLEY PULLEN.

FRUSTRATED, THE POLICE TURN TO SOCIAL MEDIA TO TRY AND FIND OTHER VICTIMS.

Murphy: WE WANTED TO SEE IF THERE WERE OTHER WOMEN THAT COULD COME FORWARD WITH THAT SAME STORY.

AND WE WANTED TO FIND OUT HOW MANY ACTUAL VICTIMS WERE OUT THERE.

Narrator: LORIANNA PARKER HAS HEARD NOTHING FROM COREY DAVIS AND ASHLEY PULLEN FOR 3 DAYS.

THEN SHE LEARNS OF THE ARREST.

Parker: IT MADE SENSE.

IT WAS ASHLEY.

I WAS RAPED BY ASHLEY PULLEN.

I FELT EMOTIONALLY SICK.

I WAS DISGUSTED.

HOW DID A DAD DO THIS TO ME?

Narrator: LORIANNA PARKER HAS DISCOVERED THAT ASHLEY PULLEN HAS BEEN ARRESTED FOR SERIAL RAPE.

I THOUGHT, "HOW COULD THIS HAVE HAPPENED TO ME?

HOW DID I BECOME A VICTIM?

HOW DID I -- HOW DID I GET INTO THIS POSITION?"

I WAS DISGUSTED. AND I WAS HURT.

Narrator: LORIANNA REALIZES SHE HAS INFORMATION THAT COULD BE VITAL TO THE POLICE INVESTIGATION, INCLUDING A HISTORY OF MESSAGES FROM ASHLEY PULLEN AND COREY DAVIS.

I HAVE SOME INFORMATION ON ASHLEY PULLEN.

Parker: ONE OF THE DETECTIVES CAME TO MY OFFICE AND COPIED THE MESSAGES OFF OF MY PHONE AND SAT DOWN WITH ME IN ONE OF THE EXAM ROOMS, SO I COULD TELL HER WHAT I KNEW.

AND THEN ALL I REMEMBER IS I WOKE UP.

AND HE WAS ON TOP OF ME.

I SAW HIM. I -- IT -- IT WAS ASHLEY PULLEN.

HE RAPED ME.

Narrator: LORIANNA RECOUNTS AS MUCH AS SHE CAN ABOUT THE NIGHT OF THE ASSAULT.

WOULD YOU LIKE A SHOT? YOU KNOW WHAT?

YEAH. I'LL TAKE A DRINK.

Narrator: SHE IS THE SECOND WOMAN TO POSITIVELY IDENTIFY ASHLEY PULLEN.

YOU DON'T MIND VODKA? NO.

Narrator: BUT SHE'S STILL CONFUSED ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED.

I WAS TWO SHOTS. AND I'M TIRED?

CHEERS. IT JUST DID NOT MAKE SENSE.

Proehl-Day: EVERY VICTIM WHO CAME FORWARD REMEMBERS THE SECOND SHOT VERY CLEARLY.

THEY BECOME WOOZY.

THEIR HEAD STARTS TO SPIN.

AND THEN THEY COMPLETELY BLACK OUT.

OBVIOUSLY, SINCE EVERYONE REPORTS TWO SHOTS, SOMETHING IS GOING ON WITH THAT SECOND SHOT.

Narrator: INVESTIGATORS TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO THE DRINKS ASHLEY PULLEN SERVED HIS VICTIMS.

THEY SEARCH HIS APARTMENT.

Proehl-Day: CERTAIN ITEMS SEEMED UNUSUAL.

THERE WAS A NAIL POLISH BOTTLE.

THERE WAS A BOTTLE OF BUBBLES THAT CHILDREN USE.

AND THERE WAS A BABY BOTTLE IN THERE AS WELL.

THINGS THAT N-- NORMAL PEOPLE DON'T KEEP IN THEIR KITCHEN.

Narrator: FORENSIC TESTS ON SEVERAL BOTTLES REVEAL THE PRESENCE OF A DRUG CALLED GHB.

GHB CAN BE USED TO TREAT SLEEP DISORDER.

BUT IT ALSO HAS A DARKER PURPOSE.

Fu: IT CAN BE MADE WITH COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE PRODUCTS AND THEN MIXED TOGETHER AT HOME.

IT'S USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH ALCOHOL.

PEOPLE WILL SPIKE A DRINK.

AND SO VICTIMS INITIALLY THINK THAT THEY'RE WE--

THE REASON THEY LOST CONSCIOUSNESS IS BECAUSE THEY OVERINDULGED.

Proehl-Day: IT IS CLEAR. IT'S ODORLESS.

WITHIN 10 MINUTES, YOU'RE GONNA START TO FEEL THE EFFECTS.

AND ALL OF THE FEMALES DESCRIBED THE SAME THING.

THEY'RE DIZZY.

THEY'RE UNEXPLAINABLY TIRED.

GHB METABOLIZES OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM WITHIN 12 HOURS, WHICH IS WHY IT MAKES IT A FABULOUS DATE-RAPE DRUG BECAUSE AT THE TIME YOU REALIZE THAT YOU'VE BEEN RAPED, IT'S OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM.

Narrator: AND GHB HAS ONE MORE DEVASTATING EFFECT.

Fu: MOMENTS AFTER IT'S INGESTED, THE BRAIN CEASES TO PROPERLY FORM MEMORY.

PEOPLE WHO HAVE INGESTED IT DON'T REMEMBER.

IT'S IDENTICAL TO A BLACKOUT IN THE SENSE THAT IT JUST CAUSES THE BRAIN TO SHUT DOWN.

Proehl-Day: THE DISCOVERY OF GHB IN THE BOTTLES FINALLY GAVE THE AUTHORITIES THEIR ANSWER TO "WHY?

WHY ARE THESE FEMALES NOT REMEMBERING?

WHY ARE THEY DIZZY?

WHY DO THEY HAVE HALF MEMORIES AT BEST AFTER ONLY TWO SHOTS?"

Narrator: THE POLICE HAVE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO CHARGE ASHLEY PULLEN WITH RAPE.

BUT ONE MYSTERY REMAINS.

Fu: THE BIG QUESTION FOR US IS, "WHO IS COREY DAVIS?

WHAT ROLE DOES HE HAVE IN ALL OF THIS?

IS HE A PERPETRATOR?

OR IS HE ACTUALLY A VICTIM OF ASHLEY PULLEN'S AS WELL?"

WHO IS THIS GUY?

HE'S GOT 600 FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK.

WE CAN'T FIND A STITCH OF INFORMATION ON HIM.

Narrator: ONE OF ASHLEY PULLEN'S VICTIMS DOES SOME DETECTIVE WORK OF HER OWN.

AND SHE MAKES A DISCOVERY THAT WILL REVEAL A SHOCKING TRUTH.

Proehl-Day: I DIDN'T THINK EVIL WAS A REAL THING.

BUT HE SHOWED ABSOLUTELY NO REMORSE AT ALL.

Narrator: THIRTY-YEAR-OLD ASHLEY PULLEN HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH SERIAL RAPE.

BUT ONE MYSTERY REMAINS.

WHO IS HIS ROOMMATE, COREY DAVIS?

Fu: GOING BACK THROUGH OUR EVIDENCE, WE REALIZED NO ONE HAD PHYSICALLY LAID EYES ON A COREY DAVIS.

NO ONE HAD -- HAD AN INTERACTION THAT THEY, THEMSELVES, REMEMBERED WITH COREY DAVIS.

Narrator: ONE OF ASHLEY PULLEN'S VICTIMS IS DOING HER OWN INVESTIGATION.

Fu: SHE'S SUSPICIOUS. AND SHE'S TALKING TO PEOPLE WHO SHE KNOWS HAVE FRIENDED HIM ON FACEBOOK.

SHE LOOKS AT COREY DAVIS' PROFILE.

SHE SEES A PHOTOGRAPH WITH A WATERMARK ON THE BOTTOM.

SHE MANAGES TO LINK THAT WATERMARK BACK TO A STUDIO IN CALIFORNIA.

AND SUDDENLY, THE LIGHTBULB GOES OFF.

AND SHE RECOGNIZES, "WAIT A MINUTE.

MAYBE THERE NEVER WAS A COREY."

GUYS. AND WHEN DETECTIVES CAN FIND NO TRACE OF COREY DAVIS...

THEY REACH AN EXTRAORDINARY CONCLUSION.

THIS GUY ISN'T REAL.

THIS GUY IS A FABRICATION.

THIS GUY IS A PIECE OF FICTION INVENTED BY ASHLEY.

Proehl-Day: ASHLEY PULLEN CREATED A FAKE PROFILE BECAUSE THAT IS HOW HE GOT WOMEN.

BUT IT WASN'T JUST THE FAKE PROFILE.

HE CREATED A PERSON -- LIKE, A LIFE.

HE MADE UP HOBBIES, ACTIVITIES, LIKES, DISLIKES.

HE CREATED THIS ENTIRE PERSON.

AND THEN HE STARTED FRIEND REQUESTING FEMALES AS COREY DAVIS.

HE WAS A NICE GUY.

YOU LIKED HIM. HE WAS FLATTERING.

BOY, WAS HE FLATTERING. AND IT MADE YOU FEEL GOOD.

YOU HAVE THIS GOOD LOOKING GUY WHO'S TELLING YOU THESE THINGS.

AND YOU FEEL LIKE THERE'S SOMETHING MORE THAN JUST THIS STRANGER ON FACEBOOK.

Narrator: WHEN LORIANNA PARKER DISCOVERS COREY DAVIS DOESN'T EXIST, SHE IS HEARTBROKEN.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE THAT I HAD TALKED TO ASHLEY THE WHOLE TIME.

I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE ASHLEY WAS COREY.

AND I WAS BEING FOOLED THE ENTIRE TIME.

AND THAT HURT.

Narrator: ASHLEY PULLEN WAS A RUTHLESS MANIPULATOR.

HE KEPT COREY DAVIS ALIVE IN THE MINDS OF HIS VICTIMS USING FACEBOOK AND A PHONE.

[ PHONE RINGS ]

WHEN THEY WOULD CALL, THEY WOULD GET A TEXT BACK THAT SAID "SORRY. MY PHONE'S BROKEN.

I CAN TEXT BUT I CAN'T TALK."

AND IT TURNS OUT HE'S TELLING THEM THAT THE PHONE DOESN'T WORK IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T REALIZE THAT COREY DOESN'T EXIST.

Narrator: ONCE ASHLEY REELED IN HIS VICTIMS, HE HAD A FAILSAFE STRATEGY TO GET THEM INSIDE.

DANIEL. DANIEL, NICE TO MEET YOU!

NO ONE IS EVER, EVER GOING TO BELIEVE THAT THEY'RE GONNA BE RAPED WITH A 5-YEAR-OLD IN AN APARTMENT.

HE'S FAST! YEAH.

EVERYONE LOOKED AT HIM AS A GOOD PERSON.

HE'S THIS WONDERFUL DAD.

SO HE WOULDN'T HURT ANYBODY.

Narrator: ASHLEY TOLD HIS VICTIMS THAT DANIEL'S MOTHER HAD DUMPED HIM, THAT SHE WANTED NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM.

AND THAT WAS AS FAR AS FROM THE TRUTH AS COREY DAVIS WAS.

HE HAD ACTUALLY KIDNAPPED THE BOY FROM HIS MOTHER THREE YEARS PRIOR TO HIS STRING OF SEXUAL ASSAULTS.

Narrator: WHEN THE POLICE TOOK ASHLEY INTO CUSTODY, HE HAD AN OUTSTANDING WARRANT FOR HIS ARREST FROM KIDNAPPING.

YOU HAVE A PERSON WHO IS WILLING TO USE HIS OWN CHILD TO FURTHER HIS DISGUSTING DECEIT.

AND THAT'S HOW I KNOW HE'S EVIL.

Narrator: ON FEBRUARY 5, 2015, ASHLEY PULLEN IS CONVICTED OF FIRST-DEGREE RAPE BY NARCOTIC AGENT.

HE IS SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON.

ALTHOUGH WE'LL NEVER REALLY KNOW HOW MANY VICTIMS HE HAD, WHAT IS PRETTY CLEAR FROM OUR EVIDENCE IS HE IS A PREDATOR OF THE FIRST ORDER.

HE IS A THREAT.

Narrator: PULLEN WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR PAROLE UNTIL 2060, WHEN HE WILL BE 77 YEARS OLD.

LORIANNA PARKER IS STARTING TO REBUILD HER LIFE AFTER THE ASSAULT.

SHE'S FOUND THE STRENGTH TO MOVE ON AND PUT THE ORDEAL BEHIND HER.

Parker: TODAY, I KNOW I'M NOT SCARED THAT I'M GONNA GET FOOLED AGAIN.

THIS TRAGEDY HAS MADE ME FEEL STRONGER.

IT'S MADE ME FEEL LIKE A BIGGER PERSON.

AND IT'S MADE ME KIND OF KNOW WHO I AM.
