Rich was the boyfriend of Lori Sorensen, who was killed by the Hook Man while they are making out in his car.


Rich picks up Lori to go to a party, but before they arrive he parks on 9 Mile Road, and attempts to make out with her. During their session, the spirit of Jacob Karns watches them from the trees.

They suddenly hear a loud scratching noise, the noise of Jacob Karns' hook being dragged across metal signs. When Rich gets out of the car to investigate, he is shocked to see a scratch being made on his car out of thin air. Rich suddenly disappears from Lori's view, as the back tire of the car gets punctured and scratching and banging sounds are heard on the roof of the car.

When the scratching finally stops, Lori gets out of the car and starts to run away, she turns around and sees Rich, suspended from a tree upside down above the car, revealing that he had been the one making noises on the roof in an attempt to get help from Lori.
