Scott Webb does drugs with his wife, Michelle. He robbed a nearby bank, but got less than $4000, soon used up on drugs. The couple were awakened when the FBI broke in to arrest the couple. After spending three years in prison, Scott and his wife are still addicted to crack, requiring so much money for drugs that they sell everything they have. On October 19, 2005, the drugs cause Scott to act more violently while at his mother's house. Scott's argument with his mother, Margaret Webb, escalated until he killed his mother by first hitting her with baseball bat a couple times then strangled her in the laundry room. Scott and Michelle go on the run, stealing a truck from a trucking company he used to work. They went to a gas station after 20 miles of travel to secretly gas up without paying and the attendants didn't realize it. They head to Mississippi near the border with Louisiana, on the pretext of helping victims of Hurricane Katrina. While there, they were stopped at a toll booth with suspicion by authorities, then an authority checks on the front of the truck and sees the sign 'relief truck' put up by Scott, fooling an authority and letting them to continue onward. Back in N.C., Scott's aunt kept calling Scott's mother many times but no answer. The mother-daughter partner went to Margaret's house, knocks on the door while the daughter yells out "Margaret," but no one answers it and calls the police. Then they enter the house and found the dead body in the laundry room and the police found a baseball bat with blood smears under the bed, and Scott is immediately the top suspect. Scott and Michelle head to Saint Jo, Texas, where they went to a hospital to pretend that he has bloated bladder and needed meditation. Then doctors found illegal drugs like marijuana and cocaine in his body. The doctors give them few more hours of rest, given them opportunity to seek out of hospital to head to a church, where he meet Pasteur that Scott is a minister. Then they went to congregation with churchgoers where Scott receives a bus ticket to Seattle, Wash. After getting there, they head to a hospital, again pretending that he was the victim of Hurricane Katrina and needed medical care. Then doctors find no explanation about the pain and they head to a nursing home to rest, where they were finally arrested (November 21, 2005) after travelling across the country. Scott was convicted of a second degree murder and sentenced to 15–18 years behind bars while Michelle received four years despite her innocence.
