Detective Sam Murphy went to Figgy's Restaurant on the Square
which employee served Jordan Rodale and Devlin Beauchamp on the
January 2, 2010. The staff was shown photographs of Mr. Beauchamp and
Rodale and one of the servers, Georgia Mavis, identified both men as
customers on that date.
Det. Sam Murphy: Please state your name and address for
Georgia Mavis: Georgia Lynne Mavis, 1642 Garfield,
Det. Sam Murphy: Ms. Mavis, you have identified Mr.
and Mr. Jordan Rodale from photographs as two men you served lunch to
January 2, 2010. Is that correct?
Georgia Mavis: Yes ma'am.
Det. Sam Murphy: How can you be so sure it was the 2nd
waited on them?
Georgia Mavis: It happened to be my little boy's
birthday. They were
my last ticket of the day. I told them about my son's birthday and they
well... at least one of them left me a very nice gratuity. And the...
Beauchamp told me to buy a nice something for my son. That's something
don't forget, you know what I mean?
Det. Sam Murphy: Yes, I see what you mean. Do you
recall when they
Georgia Mavis: I just looked up the ticket and it was
stamped by the
kitchen at 3:18 p.m.
Det. Sam Murphy: Stamped by the kitchen?
Georgia Mavis: Yes ma'am, when an order is sent to the
stamp the time. It's an efficiency thing - to see how long the order
prepare and get to the customer. See what I mean?
Det. Sam Murphy: I do see. All right, so Mr. Rodale and
arrived just a few minutes before 3:18 p.m, is that correct?
Georgia Mavis: Yes.
Det. Sam Murphy: And how long would you say there were
Georgia Mavis: Well, I probably collected the check
about 4:25 p.m.
because I closed out at 4:30. They paid, gave me the tip I mentioned
and I left. As I was pulling out of my parking spot, I thought I saw
coming out the front door. It was probably 10 minutes later.
Det. Sam Murphy: What was their demeanor like?
Georgia Mavis: They were very polite.
Det. Sam Murphy: What I meant was, how did they behave
Georgia Mavis: Tense.
Det. Sam Murphy: Tense?
Georgia Mavis: Yes ma'am, in a word, I'd have to say
Det. Sam Murphy: Did you hear what they were talking
Georgia Mavis: They were talking a lot about their
Mama. Mr. Rodale
seemed to say he thought their mama would've wanted things the way he
Det. Sam Murphy: And how was he suggesting things to be?
Georgia Mavis: Can't say I really caught that part.
Seemed to have
something to do with books, or his book. I think he said it had to do
book... Mr. Rodale. And then Mr. Beauchamp just kind of shook his head,
was just real disappointed or something. You know that kind of
get when your child has done something you just knew he knew better
than to do?
Det. Sam Murphy: I get the concept. Did Mr. Beauchamp
Georgia Mavis: He said "you shouldn't have made the
commitment" and shook his head again. Then when I came back to the
later, Mr. Beauchamp seemed a might more perturbed and said something
"you can't have them - why do we talk about this every time? They're
and I won't give them up."
Det. Sam Murphy: Did Mr. Rodale have any response to
Georgia Mavis: He said something like, "She would have
It's the reason she kept them in the first place." And then he got all
kind of sad looking and said, "You aren't going to do anything with
What do you need them for?"
Det. Sam Murphy: Anything else?
Georgia Mavis: Well, I had to leave the table - I
listen in - they got quiet when I came around and stuck around, if you
what I mean?
Det. Sam Murphy: I do. Would you have called this a
Georgia Mavis: No ma'am, I would have called it a
weren't mad exactly - like they didn't know each other well enough to
you know? But they were being very serious.
Det. Sam Murphy: Did you overhear any more of their
Georgia Mavis: No ma'am, afraid I didn't.
Det. Sam Murphy: Aside from the very generous tip they
there anything else you observed that struck you as odd or unusual
Georgia Mavis: Not at the time, but now it seems odd...
Det. Sam Murphy: What's that?
Georgia Mavis: That they were brothers. Like I said,
they acted like
they barely knew each other - like they couldn't have been from the
at all. Sad thing, if you ask me.
Det. Sam Murphy: Yes I suppose it is. If you think of
please don't hesitate to call my office.
Georgia Mavis: I will be sure to call.
Det. Sam Murphy: Also, we may need to ask you more
please contact my office if you should decide to leave town - even for
a day -
and keep us apprised of where we can find you.
Georgia Mavis: I surely will. And good luck in finding
that nice man.
Det. Sam Murphy: Thank you, I'll need it.
