City Homicide (2007) s02e09 Episode Script

Never To Be Released

Good morning, love.
Almost ready.
You seen the paper? I checked.
Wasn't there.
That paper boy.
Little bugger.
I'll bet he's hidden it again.
You shouldn't have shouted at him.
I told you it wasn't gonna help.
Do more than shout if I get my hands on him.
(SIGHS) That little mongrel.
(DOOR CLOSES) If the eggs are too soft, I'll put them in the microwave.
Christopher, brekky's ready! Christopher? Chris! (GUNSHOT) No.
Chris! No! No! No! Excuse me.
(PRESSES BUTTON) This must be very difficult.
I don't know how much help I can be.
My parents knew more about it than I do, and, uh, they tried to keep me insulated from it.
I mean, I was only 16.
Anything you can remember about your sister could end up being useful.
Is it true they were tortured? I read in the newspaper that Look, we're not exactly sure what happened to them yet.
Stuff in the media, a lot of that isn't true.
I'm sorry.
This way, thanks, ma'am.
I'll just go and see where we're at.
If you wouldn't mind waiting here a minute? It's been 30 years.
What's another minute? STANLE Y: Mm-hm.
Good, OK.
Thanks, Sergeant.
(KNOCK AT DOOR) Yeah? Dierdre Kincaid's here, Sarge.
The murdered girl's sister.
Both the parents are dead now.
So's the dead boy's father.
Simon's spoken to his mother and brother in the statement room.
They needed some time alone.
Sergeant Hatzik's bringing them up.
Hey, how'd they take it? Stunned just about covers it.
Still angry.
Yeah, once we get a sense of the dynamic, we need to separate them and go over their statements again.
MAN: Oh, great! Family bloody reunion.
Oh, the same tune, Miles, after all these years.
And you 've still got the same big mouth, just no braces on your teeth.
Hey, hey, that's enough.
He has no concept of enough.
You back off and you calm down.
Everybody stop right there.
You are a hair's breadth away from Assault Police charge.
Please, Miles, we don't need this again.
I'm sorry.
You 're really sure it's them? It is definitely their van, Mrs Dempsey.
The number plate is a match.
It's not a given, but it looks like As far as the newspapers are concerned it is.
They say it's Jarrod and Ella.
We are proceeding on the assumption it is your brother and his fiancée, but until we get Girlfriend.
They weren't engaged.
Miles! Jarrod had asked Ella to marry him.
They were off to Byron to meet friends and buy a ring.
They were as good as engaged.
Yeah, and Jarrod was as good as getting his pharmacy diploma, until he met your sister.
KAREN: Hey, Hey.
And then dropped out! They fell in love.
Oh, crap! She got him stoned all the time.
Come on.
Settle down.
He thought he loved everybody.
That's enough.
(CRIES) You know, if my brother hadn't met your sister, none of this would have happened.
You 're a prick.
Alright, if we're gonna have even half a chance of getting to the bottom of this, you 're gonna have to bury these grievances.
Let's try and do that.
Shall we? You 're not keen to bury the hatchet? In his head, maybe.
Stupid thing to say sitting in Homicide, I guess.
Your parents said they last heard from Ella on the night of January 3rd.
From the roadhouse, yes.
I didn't speak to Ella, but I heard the phone call.
Uh, they'd stopped for a meal.
At the roadhouse just this side of the border? On the Hume.
That's right.
Thing is, their van, with the remains, it turned up way south of that roadhouse.
So why would they have turned around and headed back this way, instead of going up to Byron Bay like they planned? Any ideas? No.
When your sister called, was everything OK between her and Jarrod? Yeah.
Yeah, they were fine.
Well, they hadn't argued, if that's what you 're thinking.
I mean, they were totally besotted with each other.
He was in lust, not love.
And what makes you think that? Seeing him.
Seeing them together.
Were you jealous? Oh, come on! What did your mother make of the relationship? WOMAN: Jarrod was like his dad.
Too bright to fall for anything that wasn't real.
He really loved that girl.
MILES: Mum tries to think the best of everybody.
This killed my dad.
The not knowing, the grief.
If my late husband had let me, I'd have contacted her parents after the kids disappeared.
Your husband wouldn't let you? Not after what Ella's parents said about Jarrod.
What was that? That he was into drugs.
That it must have been something like that.
Your brother had been arrested previously? Yeah, for her marijuana.
Anyway, it was the '70s.
Every man and his dog did drugs.
So much for the summer of love.
Their van had been in the bottom of that dam for years.
Yabbies picked them clean.
Time did the rest.
Took a drought to find them.
Let's get started.
What's our focus on this? OK.
Starting from scratch, New Year's Day, 1978.
Jarrod Dempsey, 24, and Ella Kincaid, 22, set off from Melbourne to join a hippy community up north.
On the evening of January 3rd, Ella calls her folks from this roadhouse, the Rising Sun, just south of the border.
Three days.
Leisurely trip.
The roadhouse is their last contact.
Last time they're seen.
After that, they just disappear.
Not even their Vee Dub is found, until now, in this dam here, south of the roadhouse.
So the big question is, apart from who killed them, why were they heading back to Melbourne? Anything to suggest a problem between the two kids? Maybe they got into a fight, decided to call it quits and head back? Doesn't look like it.
Apparently, they were all over each other.
And they were clearly seen at that roadhouse? Yes, according to the statements taken by the detective in charge.
Bloke by the name of Spotswood, Detective Inspector.
Mm, yeah.
I remember him.
He was a good cop.
Go on.
Well, of the 13 people in the roadhouse at the time, only five were ever tracked down, including the roadhouse's owner and his wife.
They gave statements to Spotswood.
All remember seeing the couple, but that's all they do remember.
Says here Jarrod Dempsey was done for possession.
Could the disappearance be drug related? The possession bust was for a bit of weed.
Not exactly a motive for double murder.
Where to from here? Do a search, find some witnesses that could be contactable.
It's not likely after 30 years.
STANLE Y: Well, if you 've got a better idea, Simon, we'd love to hear it.
When is the autopsy scheduled? Happening.
Pathology will get onto us when they've got something.
All they currently have is a pile of bones.
Work it out amongst yourselves who attends.
Until then, focus on witnesses.
MAN: Yeah, had the place for 40 years.
Good times.
(COUNTRY MUSIC ON RADIO) Sold up a few years ago after the wife died.
Moved down here.
Want a beer? No, thanks.
Not allowed.
Oh, yeah.
You 're on duty.
(LAUGHS) You do remember the night we're talking about, Dusty? (TURNS MUSIC OFF) Well, I remember the year afterward.
We had ghouls coming through the door asking questions about the poor kids.
Like something out of 'T wilight Zone'.
Alien abduction was big in those days.
You spoke to Detective Spotswood several times.
What did you tell him? That was a long time ago, fellas.
I talked about the youngsters.
You know, how they looked happy, had a good feed, sat in a booth, canoodled.
Ah, just two kids off on an adventure.
Now, I remember the girl asked me for change so she could make a phone call, and she done that.
They paid for the feed and left.
And that was the last you saw of them? Yeah.
We're trying to figure out why they would've headed back to Melbourne, instead of driving on into New South Wales.
You don't remember anything that could help us with that? For my money, it had something to do with them two hitchhikers.
What two hitchhikers? Well, I told the detective about that.
There was these two blokes touting for a ride.
They were hassling me customers, so I gave them the bum's rush.
Were these guys still there when the young couple left? Don't know.
They weren't inside, I can tell you that.
I had to threaten to call the cops to get them to leave, you know? Not that they were nasty types, or anything.
Just pushy.
And a bit like, uh What would you say? Creepy, you know? The ride they wanted, where were they headed? Melbourne, I think.
We've checked all five witness statements from the roadhouse, Sarge.
Nothing about two hitchhikers in any of them.
You sure this Dusty Beckinsdale hasn't made a mistake? It was 30 years ago.
Swears he's right.
He reckons he even gave Detective Spotswood a description of the guys.
No luck so far with tracing anyone else who was in the roadhouse that night.
Duncan's still on it.
Thought you said Spotswood was a good cop in his day, Sarge.
Hmm, he was.
Top operator.
There was a nightclub bombing, mid-'70s.
Big case, four people died.
Spotswood solved it.
It made his career.
He's retired now? Medical reasons, if I recall.
He was an exemplary detective.
SIMON: Looks like he wasn't quite so exemplary on this one.
We don't know that, do we? Jennifer, you and Duncan go and talk to Spotswood.
Get his version of events.
We need to get this absolutely clear.
Mr Spotswood? (PEOPLE CHAT) Excuse us.
We're police.
We're looking for Christopher Spotswood.
What's going on? What's this? It's alright, Judy.
(MOUTHS) What on earth do you think you 're doing?! Ma'am, we need to speak to ex-Inspector Spotswood.
Well, that's not going to happen.
With respect, ma'am With respect, Freeman, that's what we're doing here.
Paying our respects.
Christopher Spotswood is dead.
STANLE Y: They did nothing wrong, Bernice.
Yeah, try telling Judy Spotswood that.
They came in, uninvited, waving their IDs, acting like they owned the place.
They were doing their job.
The day after a man's death? They didn't know he was dead.
I didn't even know he was dead.
We'd heard nothing about it around here.
How does something like that happen? The Divisional Detective who attended the scene realised who it was.
He showed a bit of consideration.
It was clearly a suicide, so he called me, I shut it down and got in the Coroner straightaway.
You did? Well, what was I supposed to do? Judy didn't want him to be remembered like that.
It is standard procedure, Bernice.
It should have come to us.
And you 've never sidestepped procedure? It happened two days ago, is that right? Yep.
They're awaiting release of the body before they can organise a funeral.
It's a mess.
Judy's a mess.
Do they know why he did it? Out of the blue.
I've requested the scene notes from the on-call detective who attended.
I'm sorry.
You knew him well, didn't you? Back when I started out, he helped steer me through some pretty tough times.
A mentor.
And eventually a close friend.
Him and Judy.
But not until after he retired.
That was a shock too.
When was that? '87, '88? He just tossed it in.
I was almost as upset then.
So what was it Mapplethorpe and Freeman wanted? This young hippy couple that was Spotswood's case, there's a discrepancy between the statement notes he took and the recollections of one of the witnesses.
What sort of discrepancy? The owner of the roadhouse where the kids were last seen remembers two hitchhikers and there's no mention of them in any of Spotswood's paperwork.
Well, it was 30 years ago, Stanley.
Maybe the man's mistaken.
Mapplethorpe and Freeman aren't so sure.
Both were tortured before they were killed.
Looks like two assailants, doesn't it? Why do you say that? Angles and impact.
It appears that one attacker was left-handed, the other one was right-handed.
The male received stabbings on the legs, the arms and high up here on the back.
A total of at least 27 times.
At least? Yes, and the other penetrative wounds didn't strike bone - chops, slices, severings.
The weapon? Yeah, it'd be a very sharp, thin, pliable knife, like a fencing knife.
It sometimes deflected off bone, made marks like this one here, on the right scapula.
Meant to cause extreme pain, not to kill.
It wouldn't have been over quickly.
The male's death was eventually due to his throat being cut.
So hard, you could see a mark on the front of the vertebrae here.
The female was also tortured.
Damage to the bones of the hands suggested that she was pinned down by two broader-bladed knives.
Pinned down and probably raped before she was killed.
She was stabbed through the right eye.
There's another nick here, on the orbital socket.
"Here there be monsters.
" Always hoped I'd never see anything like this again.
What do you mean again? Oh, there were other cases, other bodies.
Exposed bone, flaps of skin, the soles of the feet cut open, Achilles severed so they couldn't run.
Eyes, cut out like hers.
Skulls smashed.
Variety is the key signature.
Apart from the left-hand, right-hand thing, there's one absolutely consistent detail - their noses sliced off.
Oh, Jesus.
Yes, you can see these nicks here, around the nasal cavity.
It was about smell.
He was very focused on smell.
He? Yes, except I've always believed there were two assailants, not just one.
I know the identity of one of the killers in this case.
I'd stake my super on it.
MATT: Take a look at the photographs again.
Study them.
Mate, I've got trouble finding these in me fridge.
This bloke's older than the one I remember.
MATT: Try and think back.
Was that man in your roadhouse the same day Jarrod Dempsey and Ella Kincaid disappeared? Same eyes.
You know, like I told you? Creepy.
I couldn't swear to it in good conscience.
No, I'm sorry.
JENNIFER: Anton Marleigh.
STANLE Y: Life in prison.
Never to be released.
The Highway Butcher.
Who comes up with these phrases? So, what leads us to him? The wounds are identical to those on later victims.
You dealt with the later cases? Some of them.
It was my second year on the job when Marleigh's victims started coming through.
Took seven more years to catch the bastard.
Well, the Marleigh murders were solved in '87.
That's 10 years after these two people disappeared, right? Yeah.
In late 1987 Marleigh murdered two teenage girls.
It led to his arrest.
All his other victims predated the teenage girls, going back seven years.
Yeah, which leaves a three-year window between Marleigh's first known victim, back to this couple.
Why are we so sure the other murders and this one are connected? Their remains.
They're compelling evidence, ma'am.
If Marleigh was travelling south and he was at that roadhouse, these two kids could have been his first victims.
It wasn't just him.
There was always speculation Marleigh had an accomplice, but he never gave him up.
Two killers then.
Two hitchhikers.
Marleigh always claimed that the left-hand, right-hand thing was him, that he was ambidextrous.
But I never believed he acted alone.
You need to find his partner.
So, you now have Marleigh tagged with this other person? Uh, we're not absolutely certain of that, ma'am.
The roadhouse owner, Dusty Beckinsdale, did pick out Marleigh's photograph but it wasn't exactly a definitive ID.
Well, do you have a description of the second man? Dusty Beckinsdale is working with the Facial Recognition Unit now, ma'am.
But still, 30 years You need to interview Marleigh.
A request has already been put in with the Office of Corrections.
I think there is another avenue of inquiry that we need to pursue, Senior Sergeant.
(DOOR CLOSES) Um, I'm sorry, Stanley.
You were right.
I should not have interfered when Christopher's suicide was reported.
I've been given the notes from the scene.
There was a newspaper on his desk when he shot himself open at the article about Jarrod Dempsey and Ella Kincaid.
I'm so sorry to call on you unannounced like this, Judy.
You 're always welcome, Bernice.
We need to talk to you about one of your husband's investigations, Mrs Spotswood.
Christopher was involved in a lot of investigations.
This one may stand out.
It remains unsolved.
A young couple disappeared, driving to Byron Bay.
BERNICE: Do you remember the case? Chris may have mentioned it.
No, I don't recall.
Christopher retired just after Anton Marleigh, the serial killer, was arrested.
Is that right? Yes.
But he had nothing to do with the Marleigh case.
And the case had nothing to do with your husband's retirement? No.
Why are you asking these questions? Did Chris do something wrong? Please, Jude, just try and bear with us.
STANLE Y: After your husband retired, Mrs Spotswood, did you notice anything different about him? I think it's time you told me what this is about.
The bodies of that young couple were found a few days ago.
STANLE Y: We believe the deaths are connected to Anton Marleigh.
Is it possible that there could have been some tangible connection between Marleigh and Christopher? STANLE Y: Is it possible your husband knew Anton Marleigh before he was arrested? I think you 'd better leave.
BERNICE: Jude! When Christopher When he died, he'd just read the story about those kids in the newspaper.
I can't help you.
If you think there's some sort of connection, you should be asking Marleigh about it, shouldn't you? (CHAINS CLINK) Beautiful day.
(SNIFFS) Thank you.
KAREN: I take it we don't uncuff him.
MAN: I take it you wanna celebrate your next birthday.
SIMON: OK, you guys can leave as well.
MAN: He's still our prisoner.
And, anyway, he's used to us.
Like a bad smell, eh, Colin? You never quite stop noticing it.
Is this a formal interview? Would you like it to be? I wasn't asking you.
We'll turn on the recording equipment, caution you.
And you 'll get nothing.
Better to keep it casual.
Much more relaxed.
I'll order tea and scones.
Wit! And a change of perspective.
What did I do to deserve it? We think you 've been selling us short, Marleigh.
We think that you have a couple of other murders up your sleeve.
Is that right? Yeah.
So we can arrange another change of perspective, if you like.
Yes? A bribe? (LAUGHS) You disappoint me.
A stick, mate, not a carrot.
We were thinking more along the lines of a spell in solitary.
MARLEIGH: Not much of a stick.
I enjoy my own company.
I'm the only person who really understands me.
That'd be right.
Sick bastard.
MARLEIGH: Ask me what you need to ask me, then we can all get on with our lives.
I have eight.
Did you know? Eight concurrent life sentences.
One more? Be a breeze.
So, hey, why not cooperate? It's fine, Colin.
Testing reflexes.
Very good.
Well, you never know your luck.
Ask away.
He wept.
She struggled like a little feral animal.
I could smell her fear.
Gutsy, but.
Lused very sharp knives and barbed wire, if I recall.
You 're confessing to their murder? Sure.
Why not? You admit to murdering Jarrod Dempsey and Ella Kincaid? I thought I just said that.
Is that all? DUNCAN: No.
What about your accomplice? Ahh.
That again.
Left-hand, right-hand.
"Dear Mum.
" Wanna see me write two different letters, one with each hand, at the same time? We're not into party tricks.
Colin is.
You 've seen me do it, haven't you, Colin? He's a freak.
I'm a freak! (LAUGHS) We know you had an accomplice.
Do you? Does he exist? If so, where is he? And is he still killing? That's what's behind this, isn't it? DUNCAN: Both the physical evidence and your psych assessment suggest that you had an accomplice in all the murders.
Maybe a sexual partner.
What? Are you bisexual as well as ambidextrous, are you? (CHUCKLES) "All the murders.
" Do you have them all, do you? Well, that'd be the next question.
You know, I'd really appreciate it if you didn't breathe on me.
So, two questions.
A, my supposed accomplice and B, other victims.
Let's start with B, shall we? Why not? How's your maths, detectives? Numbers in series? Yeah, sure.
If Jarrod and Ella were the first, there's a gap of three years.
Now, we reckon there's at least two other events missing from the sequence as a whole.
Maybe others even earlier.
You wanna confirm any of this for us? No.
Unless you 'd like to agree to a mutual accommodation.
What? Quid pro quo? (CHUCKLES) Your friend likes his pop culture.
You give me something and I'll give you something.
Quid pro quo.
Give you something? Something you already have.
Memory lane - a trip down.
We'd have to ask our boss about that.
Probably falls into the category of supplying pornography.
But what's pornographic? It's so subjective, don't you think? DUNCAN: Well, in the meantime, why don't you give us a show of good faith and tell us something we don't know? Fair enough.
Sounds reasonable.
Well? Why don't you speak to Christopher Spotswood about A, my supposed accomplice? DUNCAN: You know Christopher Spotswood? (CHUCKLES) Detective.
Quid pro quo.
(CHUCKLES) Do not even begin to consider that Christopher Spotswood might have been his accomplice.
But why would Marleigh pull his name out of the air like that? It's about who this is.
The second hitchhiker - Marleigh's accomplice.
He exists.
Marleigh is saying that Spotswood is somehow the key to finding out who it is.
Is this a good likeness? No, I wouldn't hang my hat on it.
It's a long time ago.
And this is a projection of what he might look like now.
STANLE Y: So, we've run the face? No matches.
Even with the tattoo.
And the spider tat's not common.
So back to Marleigh, then.
Memory lane.
He wants to see crime scene photographs of his victims to preen, relive the moments.
Dead women.
Dead children.
He wants sick images of rotting corpses and open wounds.
Well, we've got them.
We've got the crime scene photos of the ones he went down for.
We show him those and maybe he'll give us something then, on A and B.
I will not allow that creature any gratification whatsoever.
I agree.
You need to keep at him.
JENNIFER: What about Spotswood's personal notes? BERNICE: His diary? His daybook, his personal notebook.
Can we access those? No harm in asking.
Or maybe we need a warrant.
Judy Spotswood wasn't exactly happy about our last visit.
You 're right.
You stay on Marleigh.
I'll come with you.
Highly commendable.
Cigarette? You 're doing well enough to get the coffee.
Show and tell.
Show me the pictures you 've got in that file and I promise I'll say yes or no to all of them.
Fair enough.
What is this? Missing persons.
From the two years that we haven't got bodies with your signature all over them.
Any faces ring a bell? I'm not interested in faces.
I was thinking of something more forensic, if you get my meaning.
Course he was.
DUNCAN: Colin's right.
You 're a freak.
Am I? Define 'freak'.
A freak is something out of the ordinary.
It's something significantly unusual.
Like a detective in a designer suit, a man who overcompensates for his own perceived inferiority by slipping on a cloak of slick.
Neat shirt, sharp shoes, a dash of cologne to hide the stink of his own fear.
A man who sits and smiles and pretends nothing penetrates.
When, really, oh, my God, it cuts him to the bone.
Through the slick to the bloody, pink bone.
That's a freak! Determined not to scream at all the veiled insults, all the hidden contempt.
(LAUGHS) God! I'd love to have worked on you.
Yeah, those that fight back, grit their teeth, they're the ones that scream loudest in the end.
Sure about that cigarette? We don't have anything more graphic for you.
It's your own fault.
You hid them too well.
(LAUGHS) Come on, be honest with me.
What you really want in exchange is a name of an accomplice, right? We want to know how many more.
A or B, you 're gonna have to do better than that.
We may have something.
We've been going through Spotswood's personal notes.
We figured if he deliberately removed these two men from the case, he must have had a pre-existing reason to do it.
So we went back even further.
MATT: To 1975.
The Westwood Club bombing.
And he mentions a source.
A source? Spotswood had an informant on the bombing.
That's how he cracked it.
In here he makes a diary note of a" Meeting with 'W '.
Could be the break.
" Three exclamation marks.
This is a couple of years before Jarrod and Ella's disappearance.
JENNIFER: From then on, over the next few years, 'W' turns up regularly in his notebooks.
He becomes a regular informant to Spotswood.
Then here, just after Jarrod and Ella's disappearance "Met 'W ' & 'M '.
Put it to bed.
" Mr Marleigh, who is 'W '? At last.
A decent question.
What's the answer worth? How about just not getting your head kicked in? 'W'.
The answer, my friend, like the cheque, is in the mail.
If they are right, if this bloke with the spider tattoo was 'W ' and he was an informant of Spotswood's, it explains why he and Marleigh have both been erased from the case notes.
It explains everything.
Spotswood was promoted on the back of solving the Westwood bombing case.
No, Stanley.
I cannot believe that he would let someone get away with murder just for the sake of his own career.
Marleigh is protecting his partner.
Maybe your friend Judy is protecting hers.
Christopher never said anything to me about that investigation into the bombing.
I'm sorry, Judy.
I don't believe that.
How was the bombing linked to the Dempsey/Kincaid disappearance? Why did Christopher resign? Who was 'W ', Judy? Look, Jude, we believe there are at least two more families out there who still don't know what happened to their loved ones.
At least two more unsolved murders.
Darl, Chris is gone.
Do you really believe he'd want you to keep his secret now, just to protect his reputation? He spent years beating himself up about it, keeping it secret.
He was so ashamed.
Wesley 'W' was an informant.
He gave Chris crucial information about that club that got bombed and Chris solved the case.
Wesley was a reliable informant.
But then he turned up at that roadhouse.
The owner described him to Chris.
The tattoo.
A spider.
Wesley convinced Chris that he had nothing to do with those young people disappearing.
Not hard.
They were heading north.
Wesley was heading south.
Chris interrogated his friend too.
The friend was convincing, pleasant.
Christopher believed him.
So he eliminated them both from the witness statements.
Wesley and Anton Marleigh.
When the Highway Butcher murders came to light Chris was devastated.
He resigned.
Called it early retirement.
He went after Wesley but he'd disappeared.
Jude, we need to find this man.
Did Chris ever locate him? No.
He never did.
One mistake.
Just one mistake! (CRIES) Oh, my friend.
MATT: He gave a free pass to a serial killer.
He trusted a useful informant.
Same result.
MARLEIGH: Not fair.
New smell in here and I'm forced to linger.
DUNCAN: Tough! I'm hungry.
Food comes under the definition of quid pro quo.
Be warned, I'm litigious.
I'll sue.
'W' stands for Wesley.
We know all about him now.
What's his surname? We know he was your accomplice.
Was he left-handed or right-handed? We also know that he was a police informant.
Where does he live? Tall? Short? What is his surname? You don't know a thing.
You smug bastard.
Still, full points for trying.
So mine.
Gritted his teeth.
Smelled nice, but.
Musk with citrus overtones.
Play your cards right, I'll tell you where they're buried.
Where is Wesley and what is his surname? I've already told you.
The answer's in the mail.
Maybe he means it literally.
"The answer's in the mail.
" These guys get fan mail all the time.
Good thought.
He's allowed to write too.
MATT: Vetted, probably.
We can ask.
OK, so who does he write to? Thanks.
Can you email that list to us as soon as you have it? Great.
Tell you how long it would take? It's on file.
10 minutes.
Probably be a big list.
I'll call Karen.
Get some uniforms up here to help us follow up.
Check the addresses.
A woman called Wanda.
Marleigh wrote to her regularly until about five years ago and then he stopped suddenly.
We checked the address.
It was a one-bedroom apartment.
There was never a Wanda living there.
But we did speak to the estate agents.
The tenant of record for that period in time was a Wesley Stephen Simpson.
STANLE Y: Good work.
Tell me he left a forwarding address.
Sorry, ma'am.
He just dropped off the map.
No driver's licence.
Maybe we've got all we need.
Maybe now we can squeeze Marleigh for some more points.
Wesley Stephen Simpson.
Why did you stop writing to him? I'm sure you 'll work it out eventually.
DUNCAN: No brownie points this time? What about a new address? Maybe you still write but to a different name.
I'm sure your friends are already checking that out too.
But fair enough.
Brownie points.
Eeny, meeny, miney mo.
April, 1979.
Very tasty.
Wesley enjoyed her too.
SIMON: Hey, hey, hey, hey.
Easy, Dunny.
He's litigious, remember? Where's Wesley Simpson now? What, he helped you kill all your victims? He shares in the fun and you do the time.
Is that fair? SIMON: He left you to do jail by yourself.
You owe him nothing.
It's a matter of personal integrity.
STANLE Y: What about personal comforts? Quid pro quo.
Your eight concurrent lives could be made a whole lot easier, you know.
Double bonus points.
Her name's Gail.
Drama student.
She'd have gone far.
She did a nice line in screaming, back in '79.
And the extra-special, super-duper bonus points Give me a piece of paper.
I've had my fun.
I'll give you an address.
Open up.
MAN OVER RADIO: Securing the side area.
Unit B in position.
Detective Senior Sergeant Stanley Wolfe.
Superintendent Bernice Waverley.
We have a warrant for the arrest of Wesley Stephen Simpson.
What? What for? No.
There must be some mistake.
I'm one of his home-care workers.
He's been like this for five years.
Massive stroke.
He couldn't murder anybody.
(MARLEIGH LAUGHS) Or be punished for it.
He's being punished.
Isn't he? He's been locked away.
For five years.
You know, Marleigh, you think you 're special, but you 're not.
You see, I wear this suit because I like it.
I decide what the world sees.
I have a choice.
You don't.
Every day, you 're the same sad, empty monster.
Nothing special.
Nothing memorable.
You 're pathetic.
Oh, yeah, and I got your file out the other day.
Had to blow all the dust off it.
You 're not famous.
You 've been forgotten.
