- Didn't you met anyone you knew?

- I didn't say that.

Anyone that knows

you, I should say.

My butcher and his wife

were at the concert.

- What is the name there?

- Peterson, 14th street.

- You'd speak with him?

- Sure, we old friends!

I can check, remember.

All right, check.

Anyone else?

The park policeman down by the lake.

We talked for a while.

Do you know his name and number?

No. But we know each other.

We've talked there before.

- Is he a sweetheart?

- Not till I get his name anyway.

The truth is...

And a boy Nat de Grott

walked me home with me.

Where do I find him?

He works at the supermarket

of 15th Street.

And he actually

walked home with you?

Go ask him, if you

don't believe me.

- I intent to.

- What is this all about?

Dr. Peralta was

murdered last night.


Stabbed in the heart.


Break it up.

What do you want?

Hello, Franklin?

She's all right now.

A little shaky. But

okay the doctor says.

Okay, let her go.

Are you kidding?

Of course I'm not kidding.

It's a free country.

You mean the two witnesses that

saw her smack at the place?

Against three that saw

her smack away from it.

7 km away!

I saw them. Three solid

taxpaying, God fearing citizens,

that knows her and talked to her all

over Jefferson Park last night.

From 9 o'clock to 11:35 p.m.

- What do you know about that?

- I don't get it.

It makes no more sense to

me than Chinese music.

Second floor, Lieutenant.

Can I come?


- How do you feel now?

- All right, thank you.

It sticks...

The alibi.

Of course, it's the truth.

That butcher now, he couldn't

be in love with you.

I don't think so either.

- Guys generally falls in love with you?

- Some.


He was a dear friend... very dear.

Why did you quarrel with him?
