Biography[edit | edit source]
Tim Shaw went to the cave where the vampire Dirk Wilkins kept his coffin. There he found a mesmerized Judith Collins standing over the bullet-ridden body of Rachel Drummond. He brought Rachel back to the Old House, with the promise of fetching a doctor for her. He was too late however, and Rachel succumbed to her wounds. (DS 776) Judith had no memory of shooting Rachel, but Tim threatened to go to the police. Seeking to avoid any undue attention on Judith, Gregory Trask convinced Tim to cease blackmailing Judith in exchange for exonerating him for the murder of his own wife, Minerva Trask. Another part of Trask's deal was that Tim had to leave Worthington Hall; a request that Mister Shaw was only too willing to accommodate. (DS 777)
