Meanwhile, Josh had also followed his father into the force, becoming an officer with Gaston County police. Over time, he met and married a nurse, Amanda, and started a family of his own. But although the Selfs appeared to be successful and thriving, Roger’s mental health continued to cast a shadow over them all.
Concerned about her father’s condition, Katelyn decided to organize a family brunch. Hoping that the get-together would make Roger feel better, she invited her mother, Josh, Amanda and their children along. They were all to have a meal at the rustic Surf and Turf Lodge in Bessemer City, a small community on the outskirts of Gastonia.
