The man assures him of his sincerity expressing he is a business man and is not given over to esoteric ideas. He told Darrel he felt he had to call him, and tell him some how he felt the dream was related to Rachel.
Later Darrell received Rachel's backpack from the police with a diary in it a little while after the phone conversation with mentioned above. Darrel had found the drawing of the rose and Rachel's words spelling out that she knew her death would be a homicide and that it would take place shortly. Rachel had written in her diary stating,
"I am dying...
Quickly my soul leaves.
Slowly my body withers.
It isn't suicide
I consider it homicide.
The world that you have created has lead to my death."
