The Baby-Sitters Club Wiki

David Follman is a man that was only mentioned in Abby and the Secret Society.

Biography[]

David was friends with Sergeant James Johnson growing up. James became a cop and David became a reporter. Thirty years ago, David began an investigation into some dirty doings at Dark Woods. David had heard rumors about a secret society operating out of the club, a group of men who were involved in a blackmail and extortion ring. They were powerful, made more powerful by banding together. They acted illegally to force the local townspeople and merchants to do what they wanted them to: to vote a certain wan, for example, or to used a certain contractor to build their new school.

David went undercover to try to infiltrate the society, and was succeeding. But before he could publish his findings, or even share them, David died in a car accident. Nobody was ever able to figure out why his car went off the road where it did, up near an embankment near Route Five. There were no skid marks, and nothing was wrong with his car’s steering. But David died instantly when the car rolled down the hill. James thought that he was murdered and tried to keep the case alive.

The last thing David ever said to James was ’watch where you step.’ James has always been convinced that somehow this was a riddle, a clue but have no idea what it means. He planted clues around what is now The Greenbrook Club for James to follow and see the case out.

The members of the Baby-sitters Club help solve the case and followed his clues that he left behind.
