•  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.
