These interviews are representative of all interviews conducted.


Tom Banks

 

Tom Banks, owner of Sweet Treats, a specialty candy and chocolate shop located next to the Harte Agency in the strip mall.

Participants:

•  Detective E. Parker
•  Tom Banks

 

Detective Parker: Where were you on Saturday, September 15?

Tom Banks: I was working at the store, at Sweet Treats.

Detective Parker: During what hours?

Tom Banks: From 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. I never left.

Detective Parker: And during this time, did you see any activity at the Harte Agency?

Tom Banks: I did. They're open on Saturdays too.

Detective Parker: Did you happen to see Jeff Harte?

Tom Banks: I didn't see him, but I did see his car in the parking lot. I'm not always looking out the window, so it's quite possible I just missed him walking to and from his car.

Detective Parker: I understand. Did you also happen to see Annette Wyatt?

Tom Banks: No, can't say that I did.

Detective Parker: Is there anything else you can remember about that day? Anything at all?

Tom Banks: It was just a normal day. Sorry I can't be of more help to you.

Detective Parker: That's fine, thank you.

  • I think Annette was getting ready to jump ship for the Pearce Brokers. I think Annette had had enough of Jeff not making her a partner. I think Annette is the mole. Jeff confronts Annette and Annette tells him she's out. He get angry, grabs the nail gun, and goodby Annette. He's the only one who really knew about the nail gun or how to use it. He said that he saw her coming in as he was leaving, maybe they overlapped. Jeff is the only other person, besides Elliott, who knew she was looking for a 'mole'. His alibi isn't air-tight.

  • Both Meg and Kurt mentioned in their interviews that they knew Annette was looking for a spy. Meg even said to Annette on the Friday before she left work that she was looking forward to her report the Monday. I do agree that Annette was the mole though, there is plenty of evidence to suggest she was.
