What was he doing living in our

basement with all this cash?

Well, he was on disability,

and maybe he had a big

settlement after an accident?

I just don't know why it

wouldn't be in the bank.

So, what do we do?


- We call the police.

- Yeah?


- Anna. Anna.

- What?

- Wait.



- Help me.

- We shouldn't have brought this up here.

I know. You want to help me?

- Tom.

- Help me now.

I got it. Answer the door.

- Mr. Wright?

- Yes.

I'm Detective Inspector John Halden.

So, Mr. Wright,

what-what is it you do?

- He's a landscape architect.

- Oh.

Yeah. I used to be, in Chicago.

I had a small business,

a little crew,

but it fell apart in the crash,

so we moved here for a fresh start.

We also had an unfortunate

miscarriage a few years ago, so...

- Oh, I'm so sorry. So sorry.

- It was a nice change for us.

So, now I-I do contracting work

odd jobs and manual labor.

- Why London?

- Tom's renovating a house.

My grandmother passed a few years ago

and we inherited the family house,

so I thought I'd fix it up.

Good for you.

So, Mrs. Wright, how are you,

um, how are you liking London?

Anna, please. I'm a school teacher

at Morningside Primary School.

My wife runs a clinic just

down the street from there.

Sterling House? That's a,

uh, women's shelter, right?

Yeah. They look after young women with

drug addiction, take them off the streets.

The government has withdrawn its

funding, but they're hanging in there.

My wife, Marie,

isn't one for giving up.



So, thank you for the tea.

It was very good.

How long have you been

renting the room downstairs?

Uh, not long.

I mean, we just did it 'cause

we needed help with the rent.

- Three months, maybe.

- Yeah.

And he always paid by cash.
