The detectives pressed Richard Landrigan on his conduct at the nursing homeRichard Landrigan is the manager of the Yoknapatawpha Acres Nursing Home where Jerry Shaw was employed. Detectives Armstrong and Murphy re-interviewed him at the Yoknapatawpha County Sheriff's Department. The interview was recorded with the witness's knowledge and consent.

Participants:

  • Detective T. Armstrong
  • Detective S. Murphy
  • Richard D. Landrigan

Detective Armstrong: Thanks for coming in. Would you please state your name and address for the record?

Richard Landrigan: Richard Dean Landrigan. I live at 262 Woodlawn Drive, Oxford. What did you want to talk to me about?

Detective Armstrong: How are things going at that lovely facility of yours?

Richard Landrigan: Things are great. I've already replaced Shaw.

Detective Armstrong: Have you replaced your head nurse?

Richard Landrigan: How did you– She'll be easy to replace. I was going to fire her anyway.

Detective Murphy: Really? She told us you called her and asked her to come back.

Richard Landrigan: That is absurd. When she quit, I said, "good riddance." All she did by quitting was save me a lot of paperwork. She was always complaining about something.

Detective Armstrong: Always complaining about what a horrible manager you were?

Richard Landrigan: Whatever. That's her opinion, and she's welcome to it.

Detective Armstrong: What do you think made Natalie quit?

Richard Landrigan: I don't know, and I don't care. I'm just glad she's gone.

Detective Armstrong: Could it have had anything to do with Rose Jenkins?

Richard Landrigan: I don't know what you're talking about.

Detective Armstrong: Why did Rose Jenkins move out?

Richard Landrigan: I think her daughter wanted her to be closer to where she lives.

Detective Armstrong: That's it?

Richard Landrigan: As far as I know.

Detective Murphy: We've heard that you and Jerry Shaw had some pretty heated arguments in the weeks prior to his murder.

Richard Landrigan: We had some minor disagreements.

Detective Murphy: About what?

Richard Landrigan: Just the usual workplace differences of opinion. Nothing serious.

Detective Murphy: I would think that shoving was pretty serious.

Richard Landrigan: I never laid a hand on that man.

Detective Armstrong: We hear he shoved you, and you cowered away.

Richard Landrigan: Never happened. I don't know where you people get your information, but it's way off.

Detective Murphy: Do you know of anyone who would want to kill Shaw?

Richard Landrigan: I noticed you said murder earlier. I thought Jerry slipped on some garbage?

Detective Armstrong: Just answer the question, Mr. Landrigan.

Richard Landrigan: A lot of people didn't like him very much, but I don't know about wanting to kill him. I just can't help you there. Although… you know who really didn't like him?

Detective Armstrong: Who?

Richard Landrigan: Natalie. Maybe she did it. She's a big woman. She'd have the strength.

Detective Armstrong: The strength to do what exactly?

Richard Landrigan: Everyone thought he slipped, so I'm guessing he was pushed. I don't know.

Detective Armstrong: Did you shove him?

Richard Landrigan: I told you before. I had nothing to do with this murder or accident or whatever it was.

Detective Murphy: Where is it you said you were in the hour or so before the body was found?

Richard Landrigan: I don't recall. I think I was on my lunch break. I eat late because I have so much to do. I don't remember if I went out that day or if I ate in my office or the cafeteria.

Detective Murphy: Do you remember where you were when Lynette told you Jerry was dead?

Richard Landrigan: Yes, I was in my office. I do remember that.

Detective Armstrong: Either you're lying or you have a really bad memory.

Richard Landrigan: I've had so much on my mind, and the days all run together. Whatever I said in that first interview would probably be correct. It would have been fresh in my mind then.

Detective Armstrong: Did you kill Jerry?

Richard Landrigan: No, I did not! I've already told you that.

Detective Armstrong: Has anything you told us today been the truth?

Richard Landrigan: What? How dare you? If you're not going to listen to me, then I don't see any reason to continue this. I have nothing further to say to you anyway. I would like to return to my job now.

Detective Murphy: All right. You may go. For now.

Interview ends - 1:37 p.m.
