Soon, Mary is dead; Norman finds her corpse and believes his mother killed her, and that he must protect her by disposing of the evidence. Mary's sister, her boyfriend, and a private investigator search for her; one encounters Mrs. Bates and is killed, the others learn that Mrs. Bates has been dead for years. A ghost? No, the killer will turn out to be human.
