Episode 16 -- "The Death Mask" (PODCAST EXCLUSIVE EPISODE)

They told him to bring along some of his best artwork to show the staff, and so the teen decided he would make a special papier-mâché mask just for the occasion.

Three weeks later, the police would learn the horrifying truth about what that mask was actually used for.
