Walter Kelly was a police officer in Rockford, Illinois.
Along with his partner Daniel Gunderson, Walter arrived at the Roosevelt Asylum, and entered the asylum, thinking some teenagers had broken into it. They split up and searched the asylum. After Gunderson finds the teens and sees them off, Walter's nose begins to bleed suddenly in the police cruiser.
Once home, Walter enters his bedroom where his wife is waiting for him in bed. She tells him she is sorry for something she said to him earlier. Without saying a word, Walter picks up his gun from the dresser and shoots his wife and then himself, having been driven to extreme anger by the spirit of Sanford Ellicott.
