The Suicide House


A forensic reconstructionist who exhibits mannerisms that pin her on the autism spectrum, Rory Moore possesses an uncanny ability to see what others don’t. Along with her partner, psychologist Lane Phillips, she’s called to a prestigious boarding school in Indiana to investigate the Westmount Prep Slaughters – and the bizarre string of survivor suicides that follow. Step into The Suicide House with this fictional podcast recording!


Inside the walls of Indiana’s elite Westmont Preparatory High School, expectations run high and rules are strictly enforced. But in the woods beyond the manicured campus and playing fields sits an abandoned boarding house that is infamous among Westmont’s students as a late-night hangout. Here, only one rule applies: don’t let your candle go out—unless you want the Man in the Mirror to find you...


One year ago, two students were killed there in a grisly slaughter. The case has since become the focus of a hit podcast, The Suicide House. Though a teacher was convicted of the murders, mysteries and questions remain. The most urgent among them is why so many students who survived that horrific night have returned to the boarding house—to kill themselves.


Rory, an expert in reconstructing cold cases, is working on The Suicide House podcast with Lane, recreating the night of the killings in order to find answers that have eluded the school, the town, and the police. But the more they learn about the troubled students, the chillingly stoic culprit, and a dangerous game gone tragically wrong, the more convinced they become that something sinister is still happening. Inside Westmont Prep, the game hasn’t ended. It thrives on secrecy and silence. And for its players, there may be no way to win—or to survive...


Estimated Ship Date for Winners: Delayed - TBD
