Lucy and Karen Hart used to be good friends, but their friendship ended in high school prior to Lucy's death.[2]

Lucy and Ryan dated for a summer. He took her to a party, where Lucy saw Celia Hudson and Sebastian Marvin together, and Celia threatened Lucy. Lucy later wrote an encoded poem about the encounter.[3]

In 1999, Lucy participated in creating a time capsule with her high school. The time capsule included a video depicting high school life, including a brief clip of her interacting with Ryan Hudson.[2] It also included the poem Lucy wrote about the party.[3]

In 2000, Lucy died apparently due to falling from a cliff's edge into the ocean after being stabbed. A bloody knife and tire tracks were found at the scene.[4] Her body was never recovered.[5] Some of her remains were recovered and kept in the morgue, including a piece of her broken crown with strands of hair, and her blood from the rocks.[6]

Lucy's younger brother and mother moved away shortly after her death.[7]

Plot summary

When Tiffany Hudson is murdered, a recording of her death looks like the ghost of Lucy Sable might have killed her, leading Nancy Drew to investigate both Tiffany's recent murder and Lucy's death from nearly twenty years earlier. Nancy, George Fan, and Bess Marvin visit the medium Harriet Grosset to ask about Tiffany, but Grosset apparently becomes possessed by Lucy's ghost and says, "Find the dress." When Nancy later finds a bloody dress in an old trunk in her attic, Lucy's ghost seems to be present.[8] Nancy requests the cold case file from the police, but her request is denied. When Nancy later breaks into the morgue to get a sample of Tiffany's blood, she finds the box of what was retrieved from Lucy's death and steals the evidence for her investigation.[9] Following her various visions of Lucy's ghost, Nancy begins to think she's either hallucinating or haunted. Ryan Hudson also begins having visions of Lucy's ghost.[10]
