Biography[edit | edit source]

Frank Garner was a young lawyer who lived in the town of Collinsport, Maine in the 1960s. He was employed at the firm of Garner and Garner, where he worked as a junior partner. One of Garner Garner's largest clients was the Collins family. Family matriarch Elizabeth Collins Stoddard hired Frank Garner to oversee her legal affairs. [2]

On occasion, Frank would come directly to the Collinwood estate to consult with Elizabeth, who was a recluse that never left the house. He met Elizabeth's live-in employee Victoria Winters and the two entered into a romantic relationship for a time. [3]

Frank Garner played a minor role in the return of Laura Collins, who was the ex-wife of Elizabeth's brother, Roger Collins. The Garner law firm represented Roger during his divorce proceedings years earlier. Things took a mysterious turn when Laura returned to Collinsport, and Frank participated in the opening of a coffin that belonged to Laura Murdock Stockbridge - who was a past incarnation of Laura Collins.
