Detective Murphy: Come in, and pull up that chair.
Kyle Colby: Gee, thanks. I just love coming here and talking to the cops.
Detective Parker: State your name and address for the record.
Kyle Colby: Yes, ma'am. My name is Kyle Colby. My address is 1006 Jackson Avenue.
Detective Murphy: We're happy you changed your mind about coming in.
Kyle Colby: I'm not here because I want to be.
Detective Murphy: Well, thanks for coming in just the same Now, tell us what you know about Victor Jennings.
Kyle Colby: I know the same thing you do. He beat my sister up. I'd like to shake the hand of whoever got rid of him.
Detective Murphy: Who is your sister? We have to have that for the record.
Kyle Colby: Why do you cops always act like you don't know things when you do? You know who she is. Kristin Colby.
Detective Murphy: Thank you. Sounds like you didn't care much for Mr. Jennings. Did you ever speak to him?
Kyle Colby: I only went to his house once. His bullet catcher met me at the door and told me Jennings wasn't available. I know he was there. He was just too much of a chicken shit to face me.
Detective Parker: Bullet catcher? Seems like Jennings should've had a knife catcher if he wanted to stop you.
Kyle Colby: What? Is that why you made me come here? To lay that on me? I wasn't anywhere near there when that asshole bought it.
Detective Murphy: Where were you?
Kyle Colby: I don't remember, but I know I wasn't there. It was a Saturday, right? I work Saturdays down at the garage. After work, we play poker, drink some booze, just fool around. I got plenty of witnesses.
Detective Parker: That sounds like a really exciting Saturday night.
Kyle Colby: Oh, yeah? What do you do? Sit at home watching Twilight movies?
Detective Parker: Yes, exactly.
Detective Murphy: Kyle, we know you had a baseball bat with you when you went to see Victor Jennings. A handy guy like you must carry a knife too.
Kyle Colby: OK, so I went there with a bat. I didn't even get to see him, I told you. I didn't have my knife on me. And that wasn't even the same day he was offed.
Detective Murphy: What day was it?
Kyle Colby: How the hell should I know? Back before Christmas.
Detective Parker: And what? You just let it go after that? You never went back to try again?
Kyle Colby: Talk to the muscle man with all the tattoos. He knows I never so much as got a glimpse of Jennings that day or any other day.
Detective Parker: What were you planning to do with that bat if you had seen Jennings?
Kyle Colby: What do you think? You know what he did to my sister?
Detective Parker: So he pushed her around a little bit. Does that mean he deserves to get beaten up by a gearhead with a bat?
Kyle Colby: Pushed her around? What the hell kind of cop are you? He tried to rape my sister!
Detective Parker: It couldn't have been that bad, since she didn't even bother to report it.
Kyle Colby: You stupid bitch! You come over here and say that to my face. I'll show you what bad is.
Detective Murphy: That's some temper you've got, Kyle. Are you sure you never had it out with Victor Jennings?
Kyle Colby: Oh, you bitches. Yes, you got me. I have a temper. But I didn't kill that asshole. Now if you're done jerking me around, I gotta get back to work.
Detective Murphy: All right. You can go. But stay available, Kyle. Don't make us have to chase you down again.
Kyle Colby: I hope I never see either one of you again.
Detective Parker: Have a nice day.
