A family's peaceful holiday gathering is suddenly gate-crashed by a murderous maniac with an assault rifle. And a frantic emergency operator hears the unspeakable horror unfolding at grandma's house.

This shocking tragedy would wipe out all but two members of what was regarded as the perfect all-American family by friends and neighbors in Weatherford, Texas, a quiet bedroom community of Fort Worth.
