Detective Polsk: Of attempted robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, possesion of an illegal firearm, second degree murd-

Mr. Lebaugh: Whoa whoa I didn't kill anybody okay? You got that? It wasn't me that took the shot.

Detective Polsk: Mr. Lebaugh, being the first of the suspects interviewed is a priveledge. You yourself put the first impression on me and my collegues, you are your best shot at not spending the rest of your life behind bars.

Mr. Lebaugh: The other stuff, okay yeah I did, things got outta hand, really outta hand really fuckin' fast. But I didn't kill anybody.

Detective Polsk: Mr. Lebaugh, who did kill victim number 9, a Miss Cindy Swindle?

Mr. Lebaugh: (pause) It was Kink. okay? It was Kink.

Detective Polsk: This is for the record Mr. Lebaugh.

Mr. Lebaugh: It was a Mr. Steven Parsons. okay? He's got a nasty-ass kink in his neck. Hence the nickname.

Detective Polsk: I assume you all have nicknames.

Mr. Lebaugh: Yeah we all got them, we got Mac, thats me, Kink, Sharks, and Booker.

Detective Polsk: Can you tell me why you did what you did at the Peterson & Sons Bank?

Mr. Lebaugh: Same reason anybody would do it, I have rent to pay, everyone was scrapin along, who wouldnt want 900 grand to help em along you know? Sure we all had specific reasons, but overall just gettin comfy.

Detective Polsk: Did you have a "specific reason"?

Mr. Lebaugh: My daughter, Rachel, she's sick, she's been in and out of the hospital since she was 3. She's 7 now, I got medical bills up the ass. So yeah, there's my reason. Do you have any kids Detective?

Detective Polsk: No I do not.

Mr. Lebaugh: Well let me tell you something, I hope you do, and you can see what its like providing for a family. A 28 year old high school drop out can't make it very well in this country.

Detective Polsk: Can you tell me whose idea this was?

Mr. Lebaugh: Well all of ours, the setup man was booker, only because he's got half a brain. The rest of us are like brothers you know? We're stickin together, we had it all planned out.

Detective Polsk: And then it went wrong?

Mr. Lebaugh: You know shit happens. Im not tellin you but we wouldve never gotten caught if that shit didnt happen. Dont talk to me like you cops are smart as hell and won the battle.

Detective Polsk: Can you tell me what went wrong? What happened that lead to your capture?

Mr. Lebaugh: Let booker explain it. In the meantime, I'm done here.

Time: 10:20

Place: Cumberson Police Station

Interview Conducted and Prepared by: Detective Jonathan Polsk

Detective Polsk: Mr. Parsons, for the record, can you state what you are pleaing.

Mr. Parsons: Not Guilty on all accounts.

Detective Polsk: Mr. Parsons, I am not sure if you are aware, but we have surveillance from inside the bank. There is clear evidence that you were one of the four suspects that entered the bank and took control using high powered assault rifles.

Mr. Parsons: Just because I was in there and did what the tape showed doesn't mean that I was there for myself.

Detective Polsk: For yourself? Mr. Parsons I find it hard to believe that you were brainwashed to rob a bank and kill an innocent hostage.

Mr. Parsons: You think I killed her? Man you better get your story straight, what did the tapes show about the shooting?

Detective Polsk: The camera was installed as a rotating camera, the killing occured when the camera was on another part of the bank, all four of you were seen over her body when she came back into view.

Mr. Parsons: You're the detective. You figure it out. I ain't sayin who did, but if you can't see it, you ain't got shit to prove a single one of us did it.

Detective Polsk: Mr. Parsons, how did you come by the nickname "kink".

Mr. Parsons: How'd you know they called me that.

Detective Polsk: Mr.Lebaugh

Mr. Parsons: Son of a bitch would bring that up, sees here i got hit by a golf ball when i was 6, gave me a nasty ass kink in my neck, boom there you go.

Detective Polsk: Mr. Parsons, how do you feel about Mr. Lebaugh aka "Mac."

Mr. Parsons: He's a good kid, he fucked up the plan, but overall I'd say he's good. Never backtalked, always knew where to be.

Detective Polsk: Now Mr. Parsons, what do you mean by "fucked up the plan".

Mr. Parsons: I ain't goin into detail. Sir.

Detective Polsk: Would you enlighten us if to tell you that Mr. Lebaugh said and I quote "Kink did it (killed Victim #9)

Mr. Parsons: No way I'm buyin that bullshit just so I turn on my boy Mac. He's a good kid, knows his place.

Detective Polsk: I have the tapes if you need me to play them.

Mr. Parsons: If he did say it, it's cause he's scared, he knew he mesed up what was going down, and he knew that you were gonna ask him about the shooting, he needed to point a finger, so he pointed at me. if you were in his shoes, you'd do the same thing.

Detective Parsons: So for the record, you are saying that your plan did not go accordingly?

Mr. Parsons: Well of course not, we got caught didn't we?
