Murder by Needle

Scene: Interrogation room, of course. Dimly lit this time.

Characters: Fat Policeman #1 and Barb

 

Policeman: Do you waive the right to have a lawyer present?

Barb: (Silence)

P: Ok, I’ll take your silence as a yes for the remainder of the interview. Do you understand the miranda rights as they were given to you?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: Do you have any information that might help us in the murder of Alice Bailey?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: Ok, but are you refusing to give us that information?
B: (Assumed yes)

P: Aren’t you a clever one.

B: (Assumed yes)

P: Do you have an alibi for last night between midnight and 4am?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: Well, don’t think we aren’t going to confirm that. As we understand it, Mrs. Bailey was murdered by lethal injection sometime in the night. Do you have access to that?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: Now we’re getting somewhere. Is that all you have to say about that?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: I’m sure you’ve already guessed that we will be checking the room for prints.

B: (Assumed yes)

P: And does that make you nervous?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: This isn’t looking very good for you. The way I see it, Alice was working the night shift. And from what I can understand that’s when they-how should I phrase it? Put the doggies to sleep, shall we say?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: And, from the way you’re shaking, I’ll hazard a guess that you have a problem with that.

B: (Assumed yes)

P: And, so last night Alice was doing her job, and it appears she had a list of dogs who had, sorry to be blunt, come to the end of their road. Now, this name here. Can you read that?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: It says “Finn.” Apparently, Finn was a labrador retreiver. You knew him?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: You even shared a kennel with him, when you first arrived here. Is that true?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: And last night, you entered the room in question as Alice was preparing to inject your so-called friend, jumped on her, and she accidentally stabbed herself with a lethal injection of whatever it is they use for that. Is that not true?

B: (Assumed yes)

P: Well, that was easy. Thanks for your cooperation.
