Edward Hagen is one of the men pictured in the photographs found in Monica Drum's safe deposit box. Detectives Armstrong and Murphy asked the congressman to come in for an interview so they could ask him about those photos and his relationship with Monica Drum. Mr. Hagen was accompanied by his attorney, Jarvis "Bubba" Gordon. The interview was recorded with the witness's knowledge and consent.

Participants:

  • Detective T. Armstrong
  • Detective S. Murphy
  • Edward Hagen
  • Jarvis Gordon

Detective Armstrong: Good evening, Congressman Hagen. It's an honor to meet you. Thank you for agreeing to talk with us. And this must be your lawyer.

Jarvis Gordon: Jarvis Gordon, I'll be representing Congressman Hagen this evening.

Detective Murphy: Very well. Congressman, could you please state your name and date of birth for the record?

Edward Hagen: Representative Edward Monroe Hagen, March 29, 1946.

Detective Armstrong: I hope you didn't have to travel too far, Congressman.

Edward Hagen: Not at all, detective. I was actually already in town with my wife. We wanted to spend some time with our daughter after being away in D.C. for so long.

Detective Armstrong: Your daughter lives in Oxford?

Edward Hagen: She goes to Ole Miss. My wife and I flew in for a long weekend and visit our daughter while she's on winter break. I've got to fly back to D.C. early in the morning.

Detective Murphy: If I remember, your family owns property not far from the university. Is that where you're staying right now?

Edward Hagen: Hey, Bubba, are these detectives good at their jobs or what?

Detective Murphy: Thank you, Congressman. Since you say you've been in town for a few days now, I'm sure you know the reason we wanted to speak with you today.

Edward Hagen: Well, not just to congratulate me on a successful term, I hope?

Detective Murphy: Have you been keeping up with the local news, Congressman?

Jarvis Gordon: Detective, could you please be more specific? As far as anyone's concerned, my client is an expert on the news due to the nature of his ocli class="jA?
