A woman's body is found down a very deep sewage shaft, largely devoured by rats; a homeless man rushes away in the dark. It was solo-documentary film-maker Marti Hunter, 24, whose fiancé Phil Garfield was used to her disappearing during work. Her footage on the tunnel system shows shelter social worker Helen Bronson with the fleeing black man, Harold Overmeyer, the 'mayor of moll town' among the tunnel dwellers. He gets arrested when they find Marni's camera and bloody clothes in his possession. He was a soldier but left when a kid was killed during a mission. Harold says that Marni died after he gave her something and warned her. Her skull was smashed in by a single blow with a sharp weapon, and she had a 19th century vault seal, used to store cultural and intrinsic treasures. Her fiancé knew she once was romantic with one of the climbers who taught her how to use their equipment. Diamond powder indicates that Marni was in a Civil war tunnel. Written by

Every society has its bottom-dwellers, and every society fears its bottom-dwellers, because they are a symbol of what happens in that society if you fail.
