Prom Night Edit
Karen Turner is Donna's aunt, and is unclear whether she's the sister of Donna's father or mother. When Donna's parents and brother were murdered by Richard Fenton, Donna lived with Karen and Jack as they were the closest relatives. They took her, very unhappily during Fenton's police interrogation.
Both he and his wife took her out as fast as they could, when Fenton delusionally began ranting that Donna was his intimately. A few years had past, Donna while still on medication from the ordeal and regularly sees a psychiatrist, appears finally happy.
Jack and Karen have done the best they can to be good parents to Donna. But they have made sure that Donna doesn't forget her family or the love the family had. As Donna is getting dressed, Karen startled her in the mirror before gently massages her shoulders: assuring her she'll have the best night in her life. Karen then gives Donna, her mother's shawl. She and Jack kissed Donna and watched her leave with her friends, hoping she could finally move on from the ordeal and enjoy her life.
Detective Winn comes to their doorstep while Karen is washing-up so Jack talks to Winn and Winn announces that Fenton has escaped. While Jack and Karen want her back quickly, they decide to leave her be and Winn decides watches out for Fenton at her prom.
Fenton does come, but is never seen by the police. As he snuck in the hotel before they did. Eventually Richard Fenton continued his killing spree, killing Donna's friends and several hotel staff. Winn quickly saves Donna in time and returns her to her aunt and uncle who have been worried all night.
Fenton, unfortunately, still hasn't been caught. Winn and the police decide to guard the house, knowing he'll come for Donna. Karen and Jack leave Donna and her boyfriend alone upstairs to rest from the whole ordeal, not knowing Fenton's already at their house.
Karen distracts Winn by screaming in horror when she sees a dead police officer outside. Donna is able to finally fight him off and Winn shots him to death. Karen and Jack are still alive and comfort Donna, who grieves over her dead boyfriend's body.
