Rebecca shares her remarkable story in the book, The Devil in Pew Number Seven, which details her parents’ five-year war with the most powerful man in town, Horry Watts, who would one day orchestrate that fateful night.

“And that’s when I realized my mom did not make it, and I just stood there in shock.”
