Mentally, Physically & Emotionally Tortured

Growing up was hard in the Allen household. Tony was an only child and he was treated poorly from birth and as long as he can remember. His parents are on drugs and a lot of the time they do not even know he exists.

Not to blame it in anyway on his childhood but, serial killer Tony Allen grew up in horrific conditions. For as long as he can remember, Tony's mother and father were really mean to him. His mother, Sara was always talking about how hard life was and that it would be easier if she didn't have him. She would scream and yell at him. She was always griping about something. His father, Benjamin would take his discipline a little too far. He would use a switch, sometimes his hand or even a belt. He was unhappy with his job at the office. There was never enough time to do everything he needed to do. He wasn't happy with his employees and their lack of work performance. He brought this frustration home to the family. As soon as he would walk in the door in the evenings, the mood would completely change.

He was an only child and when he found out that his mother didn't want him, it devastated him. After he heard that his mother didn't want him, he just felt like a burden on them.

Yeah, there were good times, around a birthday or even at Christmas but, most of the time there were more bills than there was money.

Wheel of Fortune

Tony had a bright spot each week. One day a week his family would sit down to watch the long time running game show Wheel of Fortune with Pat Sajak and Vanna White. At this time during the week, he, his mom and dad would be almost at peace. They all loved the show very much. The family would come together and solve the puzzles together. Cheering one another on, if they got a puzzle correctly. Tony just wished that this good mood would continue around the house afterwards.

Death of Mother and Father

After a very stressful work week Benjamin came home. He hadn't been feeling very well for a while oh, maybe a week or so. He sat down to watch television and he had a heart attack. He died right then and there, I feel compelled for some reason to say that he didn't feel any pain. A few hours later, Sara comes home to a quiet house and thought, how odd. Tony was in the backyard. Sara then turned the corner to the living room and found Benjamin dead on the couch.

The funeral was very somber. Tony did not even shed a tear as his parents were laid to rest.

Psychotic

Mentally Unstable

Wheel of Torture

Tony goes down into the basement where he has all kinds of metal tools and hooks, metal tool boxes. He comes across a very large piece of cardboard. He cuts a large circle for the wheel and he cuts the centerpiece out for his spinner. Instead of "bankrupt" or "1000" etc. he has an axe, a machete, a bear trap, a chainsaw and knife. He is fascinated with the game Wheel of Fortune but, he is more interested in his game. This game reminded him of his dad and how inhumane he was to him. Words do not do Tony's situation, justice.

Victims

He was a real weird guy. He bought four mice that are sold at the pet store that people buy for feeding their snakes. He bought the four mice and put them in an aquarium with no snake. Then, he would spin the wheel. The mice suffered the consequences, of spinning the wheel.

Crazier than Ever

If the wheel said a free spin, it did not matter. Tony was the winner, not the mice. Each and every time he looked at them, he could only picture his father. Then, he would start having flashbacks of all the lashings and punishment that he received at the hands of his father. Everything from beating, to verbal and mental abuse, Tony had it very hard growing up and this led to a very troubled young adult.

"You Are Surrounded"

The police received an anonymous call that gunshots had been fired at a residence. Tony, however, never would come out. Finally, the police had to rush into the home. After a thorough search, they did not find Tony but, they did find bullet holes all throughout the home. Also, they found hundreds of mice in the basement. Some mice had a knife through them, a larger mice was in two pieces, in a bear trap. Even more mice met their fate of the wheel of torture by dying by chainsaw and anything else that was a choice of death on the wheel.

Final Battle Between Good and Evil

As they realize Tony is not there in the house, there is an immediate man-hunt. It isn't long before phone calls, and police dogs trap Mr. Allen down a dead end road. He climbs up onto the house at the end of the road. His heart is pounding and his thoughts are racing. The cops come flying up to the home. They jump out of their cars, with their guns drawn. The cops instruct him to get down off the roof. When he refuses, they choose to shoot him down. As Tony is falling, he thinks, this is it. Then WHAM! he hits the ground and blacks out. He then wakes up from the dream. First of all, he is not dead, that is a plus! Not to mention, he can hear his parents in the next room so, he knows that they are fine. He is realizing now, that this was a dream. There were never any mean parents or Wheel of Torture for that matter.

Tony turned off the television set. He went down to the basement to get his clothes out of the dryer. He freaked out on the way out of the basement. The reason being, he looked over to his left and he saw a cardboard cutout that said Wheel of Torture. How could this be? It was only a dream.
