Cathy, from what I understand,

police don't have much to

go on right now.

Lisa, there is still a lot of

unanswered question when it

comes to this case.

was gunned down outside of

this Roslindale home on the

porch just behind me. Sources

tell me the suspect in this case...

Turn that shit off.

- You alright?

- Yeah, I'm fine.

None of your neighbors

saw anything.

And the rain hasn't left

much for forensics.

We need to go through

your cases, Tommy.

You must have an instinct

on this. Something.

Not off the top

of my head, no.

They want to see you

upstairs first, anyway.

- Yeah?

- Yeah.

This is off-subject, but this

is my daughters phone.

I need a list of all the contacts,

I got to talk to her friends,

- associates, whatever...

- Yeah yeah.

Janet can do all that.

Don't worry about it.

So the rules don't apply.

- He's right, isnt he?

- I think he is, yeah.

I have to make a statement to

the media. Is there anything

you want in there? You

want to stand with me?

- No, thank you.

- They want to see you.

I don't want any part of it.


I'm not going to sit in the

Murder Room. No point to it.
