Lutz woke up at 3.15 every morning on his own, which was when Ronald set out to shoot his family. The family members claimed to have smelled suspicious and weird odors, found green slime oozing out keyholes and door gaps, random chills, .etc.

Due to the happenings, the family called a priest to perform an exorcism. The priest heard a yell s'reaming''Get out' and asked the family members never to sleep in that room again.
