At the age of 15, Laurie started to take interest in occultism; this is also the time that she said she was being possessed by the vampire.  In 1991, Laurie began dating a girl who is also involved in the occult.  She would inflict harm to herself and her parents would discover the wounds that would led to her hospitalization on March of 1991.  She was given a medication that could help her feel calm.  But after two days she cut herself in the wrist and she was sent back to the hospital.

Laurie together with her friends took Sharer into the Witch’s Castle and bound her.  But the girls are worried that people might discover them due to the noise of Sharer.  Tackett led them to a dumpsite where they tortured her and burned her alive.
