1 I need love I wanna be kissed Oh, baby, my mother told me It's not a thing For a girl Oh, baby Oh, baby I need your love I need love Mrs.
Brewer… We've identified the body at Sausal Creek as that of your husband, Nicholas Brewer.
Brewer, do you… Do you understand what I'm saying to you? Yes.
We're very sorry for your loss.
How did it happen? The medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death, but we do know that there was evidence of head trauma.
Who would do this? Sophie, we're trying to locate an individual who met with your husband on March 16th.
We could use your help in identifying him.
Is this something you can assist us with? This is security-camera footage from Rogue's Bar.
Did your husband ever mention this attack? No.
Do you have an idea who the other man might be? No.
We found this on your social media.
It's important you're completely honest with us.
Do you know who that is? It's Curtis Hamilton.
He's a colleague.
Was a colleague.
When was the last time you saw Mr.
Hamilton? When he resigned from his teaching position six months ago.
Can you think of any reason why Mr.
Hamilton and your husband would be involved in an altercation like this? -No.
-What was the nature of your relationship? We were co-workers.
We were f-friends.
Here she is, guys.
Brewer! Mrs.
Brewer! Hold on.
Brewer, what is the latest update? Mrs.
Brewer, tell us how you're feeling now that the video has surpassed five million views.
How are you feeling now the video has surpassed five million views? Oh, Sophie.
Oh, baby.
It's gonna be OK, OK? - Mm-hmm.
- I love you.
The grandmas took our phones.
Mom, why is no one telling us what's happening? We'll talk about it, OK? -Do you want me to stay? -Please.
Come sit down, Ethan.
Um… Your… Your dad, he… Your dad… he's not coming home, OK? Is… Is he dead? Yeah.
No! Do they know who did it? No, baby.
They don't, not yet.
But the police, they will find him, OK? I'm gonna kill him.
Whoever did it, I'm gonna get a knife and slit his throat.
Baby… Ethan.
- Ethan! - Let him go.
Oakland PD.
Yes, sir, I can help… Pia.
Take me to see Nick.
Nick's body's been taken to the Coroner's Office.
Then take me there.
They won't let you see him, either.
This is an ongoing investigation.
Pia, I'm so sorry.
So, my brother's body… is just evidence? OK.
How's Kai doing? He's asleep.
- Here.
- Mm-hmm.
The police think it was Curtis.
-He met with Nick a few weeks ago.
-They met? -My God.
-I had no idea.
But there was an argument.
Curtis attacked Nick.
They have it all on security footage.
Do you think Curtis could have done it? Why would he? Sophie, you know why.
What did you tell the police? I panicked.
I told them Curtis was a friend.
I know.
I know it was stupid.
Don't say anything more.
They'll judge you.
Everyone will.
But if Curtis did this, Mom… it is my fault.
-It is.
No, it's not your fault.
It's not your fault, baby.
What was that? If it's a reporter, I swear to God, I'm gonna Mace them.
It's Pia.
Pia, what in the hell are you doing? I had to park all the way back there just to avoid the… parasites out front.
We don't need histrionics right now.
The boys are asleep.
-Mom… -Excuse me? Mom… Just… Just breathe, OK? Breathe.
They wouldn't let me see my own brother's body.
Did you see him? The police had already identified him.
-Then how can we know for sure? -Pia… They could have made some kind of terrible mistake.
They didn't make a mistake.
They showed me… photographs.
Can I sleep here tonight? Of course.
Thank you.
I'll be in with my mom.
My life changed after I met this woman.
You made me happier than I ever thought I could be, happier than I thought I deserved.
Happy Anniversary, baby.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Kai, I heard that.
Come here.
Just so you know, Sophie Brewer, your husband is totally fuckable.
- She knows.
- Oh, wow.
-Everybody knows.
-Ladies… So, Nick was your first, right? Hmm.
There was a boy in the tenth grade, but we actually only got to second base.
So that means Nick is the only guy you've ever slept with.
- What? - It's her anniversary.
But also, does it really matter? Well, only she can answer that.
OK, Kim, you're out of control again.
Come in.
When did you move? I'm just looking after this place for a friend.
-Drink? -No.
I'm sorry… about what happened to your husband.
When I heard the news, I wanted to reach out, but I wasn't sure-- Why did you meet with Nick? Don't lie to me.
I know you did.
He messaged me.
Out of the blue.
-Why? -He wanted to know what happened.
Between us.
Every little detail.
How it started.
How often we met.
How many times we… He just sat there and listened.
Like, weird-ass calm.
And when I got up to leave… he attacked me.
He attacked you? Yeah.
He attacked me.
So the only time you met him was at that bar? You haven't seen him since? Why are you here? Sophie? You think… I killed… your husband.
Is that it? You seriously think I killed your fucking husband? Curtis, the police have the fight on security footage.
They showed it to me, so don't lie about what happened.
Why did you hit him? Why are you talking to the police about me? Oakland PD! Curtis Hamilton, we have a warrant! D-Did you call them? No.
I-- -What the fuck? -I swear.
Curtis Hamilton? I'm Detective De Luca.
This is Detective Amiri.
We have a warrant to seize and search your electronic devices.
What? Whoa.
We need your laptop, your phone, your… Mrs.
- Is this yours? - Yeah, but you… - Anyone else in the house? - Hey.
Come on, take it easy.
-I have rights! You can't just fucking… -Hey, take it easy.
Jesus Christ! - Get the fuck off of me, man! - Look, come on.
-Stop resisting.
-Fuck! OK! Curtis Hamilton, you're under arrest for obstruction.
- Take him out.
- Come on.
-You followed me here? -Sophie, you lied to us! OK? We're gonna have to take you in for questioning.
Let's go.
Take him round.
Do you know who that is? - Get your camera.
- Watch your head.
-Thank you.
I'm Alice Napier.
-Detective De Luca.
- I'll be acting as Sophie's attorney.
- Hey, Alice.
Hi, Detective.
How you doing? Yeah? I really wish I didn't have to go to LA tomorrow.
You know how I do without sleep.
I'm gonna be a zombie on four hours.
What's wrong? Soph? Mrs.
Brewer, why did you lie to us about your relationship with Curtis Hamilton? - You're not required to answer.
- What were you doing at his apartment? I needed to find out for myself if Curtis was involved in Nick's death.
And did you? I don't know.
No, it's fine.
Go ahead.
Ask your questions.
Begin by explaining the exact nature of your relationship with Curtis Hamilton.
What's wrong? Soph, what's wrong? You've been acting strange all day.
The boys OK? I slept with someone else.
He was a teacher at Balfour.
Y-You're joking, right? -Nick… -Please tell me you're joking.
We were having an affair.
I didn't mean for anything serious to happen.
- What do you mean by "serious"? - It's OK.
It's… Who initiated the relationship? I did.
- And then you ended things? - Six months ago.
How did he react? He was angry.
-Did he threaten you? -No, of course not.
- Did he threaten Nick? - Not that I'm aware of.
Was Curtis in love with you, in your view? Yes.
That's why I ended it.
How long? Tell me.
How long? -Uh, it's over.
-How long? Three months.
Did you like fucking him? Was it good? Was it good? At least tell me it was good.
Tell me it was worth all of this.
It's our anniversary.
You stated earlier that the last time you saw Curtis was when he left the school.
Is that correct? On the day he resigned, yes.
No more communication? No emails? No text messages? No phone call? There was a phone call the day after he quit.
I didn't answer it.
I blocked his number after that.
Did your husband ever abuse you, Mrs.
Brewer? Did you have to defend yourself? No.
Not even after he learned about your affair? - He must have been upset.
- My client won't comment.
Do you think Curtis and I were in on this together? -Were you? -Stop this interview.
If I wasn't happy in my marriage, I would have left! If you were happy in your marriage, why did you have an affair? Enough! You know what? It's 3:00 a.
I'm taking my client home now.
Thank you so much for your time.
We would advise no further communication with Curtis Hamilton.
My client isn't being accused of anything? Right now, Curtis Hamilton is our primary suspect.
We've found evidence on his computer that he was tracking Nick, monitoring his social media accounts, basically cyberstalking your husband.
Brewer, if you withhold evidence again, we will press charges.
Show them out.
-I'll take you out through the back.
-What will happen to Curtis? If there's enough evidence, he'll be charged with homicide.
In which case, you'll need to testify about your relationship.
-In public? -Yeah, I'm afraid so.
Sophie, they won't go easy on you.
Come on.
I'll get you home.
This way.
- Where were you? - Oh, my God! Jesus Christ, Pia.
Did you go out? Uh, yeah.
I needed some air so I went for a walk.
And now I need some sleep, so good night.
Matt texted.
There's going to be a memorial for Nick at the sports center tomorrow.
So soon? With everything that's being said, his students want to honor him.
What's up, PS Nation? This is homemade slime, mark eight, uh, now with a new… Hey, baby.
Be sure to like and subscribe, please.
Just take a little break.
How you doing? You? Same.
Why do they care so much? It's not like he was their dad.
What the shit? So, one of my superfans from Sacramento just hit me up with this video from Temport, which is some dude getting arrested last night as part of the Nick Brewer murder.
-Eat something.
-Where's Andrea? -She took a cab home.
-Ch-Check it out! Th-They arrested someone.
- Look who it is.
- Watch your head.
Hamilton from school.
- From your school? - Yeah, he was the drama teacher.
-Ethan, put it away.
-Well, don't you want to read this? -I do.
Put it away.
What is your problem? "Taken in for questioning," that's all it says.
Why would Mr.
Hamilton want to hurt Dad? He wouldn't.
I'm sure it's a misunderstanding.
The police are questioning lots of people.
Yeah, OK, but he's the one in handcuffs, and Dad's dead! I don't want you or Kai to leave this house.
Do you understand? - Mom, we're fine.
- It could be dangerous.
I want you close, just until the police know for sure who did this.
Can I talk to you for a second? Were you at the police station last night? Were you? Yes.
Because of that guy? Sophie, look at me.
Pia, just leave it.
-Were you fucking him? -Pia… Holy shit.
Holy shit.
It was a mistake, OK? You forget someone's birthday, that's a mistake.
-You don't fuck someone by mistake! -Pia, please… please keep your voice down.
Is this why… Is this why Nick got all weird with me? Is this why he got all closed off? I told him everything, OK? We were working through it, getting over it.
Sophie, he loved you so much, he never would have gotten over it.
Nothing you say will make me feel worse than I already do.
Did he kill my brother? -Did he? -I… I don't know.
If he killed Nick, it is on you.
-It is because of you.
-You think I don't know that? Ethan… Ethan, wait.
-You don't understand, OK? -Just… No.
Where are you going? Sophie? Why didn't you tell me he was outside the door? The two of you were so busy yelling at each other.
I'll call him.
No, don't bother.
I need to go after him.
- It's her! Mrs.
Brewer! - Mrs.
Brewer! Anything to say about… Get out! This is private property.
Brewer-- -Are you deaf? Get the hell out! Do you know why Mr.
Hamilton might hold a grudge against your husband? Hey! Out! Everybody leave! Leave! Get the hell out! You hear me? Out! Get out! Hey.
This is Ethan.
Leave me a message.
Where are you, Ethan? Please call me back, OK? Hey, have you seen this boy? His name's Ethan.
He comes here all the time.
-No, sorry.
-No? Haven't seen him today? This is my son Ethan.
Have you seen him in the last hour? -No.
Excuse me.
This is my son Ethan.
-Have you seen him today? -No.
Sorry, ma'am.
- You haven't seen him? - No, I haven't.
Hey, can you have Kai try the FindMyFam app? Yeah.
I don't know.
I'm just gonna keep trying other… parks.
I got to go.
Why are you following me? Stop! Hey, I'm talking to you! Stop the car! Stop the fucking car! Roll down this window! -Are you a journalist? -No.
You were at my house.
-I-I wanted to talk.
-Why? What do you want? Hi.
Um… Hi.
My name is Emma Beesly, and I was in a relationship with your husband.
W-We met on this dating site called 2Smitten.
He called himself Danny Walters.
So you met my husband on some hook-up app? Well, there was a lot more to it than that.
Oh, this is bullshit.
I don't know who you think you are, but I… -No, my husband would never.
-I'm telling you the truth.
And I didn't want to be the one to tell you, but I had to come here.
You don't live here? No.
I'm from LA.
-When did you meet him? -September, last year.
Six months ago? -So, if you want to contact me-- -Why would I ever want to see you again? I didn't mean to upset you.
I just wanted you to hear it from me and not the police.
No, what you wanted to do was absolve yourself of your own guilt.
Well, I hope you fucking choke on it.
…your husband is totally fuckable.
What is it? Obviously, this is, like, a revenge killing, but the question is, who did Nick Brewer kill? Let me know what you guys think in the comments below, and again, don't forget to subscribe.
- You told her? - She is still your mom.
-You're coming home.
-Can I just stay with you? -You don't get to choose.
-You gonna drag me out of here? -He can stay-- No, Pia! Ethan, listen to your mother.
I'll see you in a couple hours at the memorial.
Wait for me in the living room.
I need to tell you something.
I, uh… I was in the park, looking for Ethan, and this woman just approached me.
She said… She said she was having an affair with Nick.
-That's what I thought.
But she lives in LA, and Nick was traveling there every few weeks, and… She said it started six months ago.
That's when I told him about Curtis.
So you think this is, what, him trying to get back at you? Or she's just some random psycho looking for attention? No, no.
She told me they met on a dating site, 2Smitten, and he called himself Danny Walters.
Have you seen his profile? No.
It's the only way we'll know if she's legit.
What was his name again? -Danny…? -Danny Walters.
USER ACCOUNT DEACTIVATED I know someone who can, um… retrieve this.
It could just… be a coincidence.
I mean, Danny Walters is a common name.
You OK? Yeah, fine.
- You're so dead! - Kai, shut up, bro.
-Why are you always saying something? -Ethan.
Hey, boys! Hey.
No fighting.
OK? Not today.
Amen to that.
Ethan, get dressed.
We got to go soon.
Kai, get your tie on.
NO EMAILS FOUND NO EMAILS FOUND NO EMAILS FOUND Oakland Police are yet to give an official update on the latest developments in the highly unusual case.
The man, who has not been identified, was taken in for questioning late last night, but was released earlier today without charge.
According to police sources, the man is a colleague and close friend of the victim's wife, local school teacher Sophie Brewer.
Nicholas Brewer's body was located in Sausal Creek on Wednesday night, after a bizarre viral video was posted online… Turn it off.
…showing Nick Brewer making what… You never judged me.
All the time you knew, you never judged.
Well… not to your face.
I don't know why I did it, Mom.
You know, I… Maybe I wanted to tear this… this house down.
And… And Curtis, he was… fun, and exciting, and… Hey.
Life is messy.
You need to stop being so hard on yourself.
- Mrs.
Brewer! Ben Park of GBZ Online News! - All right, guys.
- Mrs.
Brewer, I have one question.
- Step aside, please.
Let's make some room.
Thank you.
Let's make some room, please.
Thank you.
Brewer! Mrs.
Brewer, did they know about the affair? Were you abused? Hey! Watch out.
Brewer? We've stationed police around all the entrances to keep out the press.
Thank you.
Curtis Hamilton is no longer a suspect, right? We found security-camera footage in San Francisco that supports his alibi.
-So my husband's killer's still out there.
-That's why we're taking every precaution.
You think he could be here? It's not uncommon for a perpetrator to attend a function like this, to witness first-hand the havoc they've created.
Sophie, hi.
How are you doing, Kai? You all right? I just want to say how sorry I am.
I can't stop crying.
Thank you for coming.
Kai, are you hungry? -Come on, let's get something to eat.
-Thanks, Mom.
This is Jenny.
She's one of our star volleyball girls.
Sh-She wanted to meet you.
Hi, Jenny.
Thank you for coming.
Brewer… I-I don't know if it's important, but… it's about Nick.
What about Nick? Well, he was close to some of the girls and-- Hey, Sophie.
Hey, Jen.
I'm glad you could come.
Hey, Jen, the rest of the team are looking for you.
Hey, let me take you to your seat.
Come on.
What was that about? Oh.
She's a bit shaken up.
Some of the students are struggling.
You know Nick, he was everyone's friend.
Those cards that Nick was holding, what did they mean, Matt? -Did Nick ever do-- -No.
Nothing ever happened with a student? Absolutely not, Sophie.
Jesus! I'm sorry.
I-I don't know what to think anymore.
Yeah, well, who does? You saw the news? And? No one knows anyone else's business, Sophie.
- No, you can't come in this way.
- No, I… Pia.
- Go around, please.
- I'm supposed to be here.
He's with me.
- Go ahead.
- Thanks, man.
-Did you find something? I just wanted to apologize for the other day.
At the port.
I was just trying to help.
Doesn't matter.
Not your fault.
It's not like you invented the fucking Geo app or whatever.
Actually, uh… I adapted it from a Chinese app for spotting giant pandas.
-Vincent… -It was pretty easy.
I cannot deal with this right now.
What did you find? Uh, OK.
I sent malware to the dating websites and then ghosted their system-- What did you find? Right.
Uh, hang on.
Hey, everyone.
Can I have your attention? Hey, everyone.
Uh, thanks for coming.
I wish I could say it was nice to see you all, but it isn't.
A brutal crime has been committed, and I know all of us are still just in shock.
But we're not here to talk about how Nick died.
We're here to celebrate how he lived.
Nick was an incredible asset to this college.
He was a dedicated, talented professional who just wanted to bring out the best in everyone he ever met.
His loyalty was, uh… was inspiring.
Moving forward without him isn't going to be easy for any of us, but… um, we're not alone.
We have each other, and we have our memories of Nick.
I love you.
You know, Nick was always the kind of guy who, uh… who was always there to listen.
He never judged.
He was the first to laugh and the last to leave.
He was a devoted husband, father… son, and brother… and a dear friend to all of us.
-Shame on you.
-What did you say? I said you should be ashame-- -Hey! No, no, no.
-Go to hell! - God! - All right? - Relax.
- No, no, no.
You all right? -Hey, what happened? What did she say? -I shouldn't have done that.
-I shouldn't have done that.
I'm sorry.
-What happened? It's OK, everyone.
Please, just take your seats.
- Let's go home.
- Time to go.
Come on, let's go.
Come on.
I know, i-it's an emotional day.
We found each other I helped you out of a broken place You gave me comfort But falling for you was my mistake I put you on top I put you on top What did you find? That woman you met… Emma… I think she might have been telling the truth.
My friend was able to, um… retrieve this from the dating site.
I'm sorry.
I know this photo.
I was there when it was taken.
It was just a month ago.
Look at the date the profile was created.
MEMBER SINCE MARCH 15TH, 2018 - Two years ago.
- Long before you and Curtis.
I'm really sorry.
Excuse me.
So call out my name I love you.
I was in a relationship with your husband.
We're gonna be OK.
We were in love.
I forgive you.
