Oh, my God.

00:
03:03,950 -- 00:03:06,180

Detective Jay Burgess,

one of the heroes...

9

00:
03:06,352 -- 00:03:09,048

...from the Charleston

Police Station fire, is dead.

10

00:
03:09,222 -- 00:03:12,817

Police apparently received a 91 1 call

from an unidentified woman...

11

00:
03:12,992 -- 00:03:15,222

i...who spent the night/i

iat Burgess' house./i

iSue Share for/i Channel 8 News.

15

00:
03:46,659 -- 00:03:48,786

Detective, can you tell me

what happened?

16

00:
03:48,962 -- 00:03:50,896

Do you have any idea

how Jay died?

17

00:
03:51,064 -- 00:03:54,227

My wife and I watch you

almost every night, Ms. Shelley.

18

00:
03:56,035 -- 00:03:57,093

Thank you.

19

00:
03:58,972 -- 00:04:04,774

TVN says you're the number one

news reporter in Charleston.

20

00:
04:04,944 -- 00:04:09,779

-My, my.

-Yes, I've been very fortunate.

21

00:
04:09,949 -- 00:04:10,973

I was asking you--

22

00:
04:11,150 -- 00:04:17,487

Truth be told, I'm surprised CNN

or Fox hasn't scooped you up yet.

23

00:
04:17,657 -- 00:04:21,093

I bet you end up

on one of those national broadcasts.

24

00:
04:21,261 -- 00:04:24,059

Because it's the same

everywhere, isn't it?

25

00:
04:24,230 -- 00:04:27,529

It's just easier for people

to hear bad news...

26

00:
04:27,700 -- 00:04:30,396

...when they're looking

at a pretty face.

27

00:
04:31,938 -- 00:04:35,066

Look, I'm just trying

to understand here.

28

00:
04:35,241 -- 00:04:37,835

Do you think Jay died

from respiratory failure...

29

00:
04:38,011 -- 00:04:40,002

...or heart attack?

30

00:
04:40,179 -- 00:04:43,546

Actually, Ms. Shelley,

we were hoping you could tell us.

31

00:
04:43,716 -- 00:04:47,880

This isn't exactly your first brush

with this type of incident, is it?

32

00:
04:48,054 -- 00:04:50,989

Sorry, I'm Bill Alexander,

Ms. Shelley's attorney.

33

00:
04:51,157 -- 00:04:52,624

Your station manager said...

34

00:
04:52,792 -- 00:04:55,317

...that I'm at your disposal

as long as you need.

35

00:
04:55,495 -- 00:04:56,519

Thank you.

36

00:
04:56,696 -- 00:05:00,427

Quite frankly, I was surprised that

Sam thought I needed an attorney...

37

00:
05:00,600 -- 00:05:04,536

...but now I'm actually

glad that he suggested it.

38

00:
05:05,872 -- 00:05:09,000

Well, since we're all here...

39

00:
05:09,175 -- 00:05:12,338

...why don't we go

into the interrogation room.

40

00:
05:13,112 -- 00:05:18,482

Just to be clear,

I'm not just giving a statement.

41

00:
05:18,651 -- 00:05:21,848

I mean, this is an interrogation...

42

00:
05:22,021 -- 00:05:24,546

...so you see me

as some sort of suspect.

43

00:
05:26,793 -- 00:05:29,318

Well, shall we?

44

00:
05:39,672 -- 00:05:41,697

How well did you know

Jay Burgess?

45

00:
05:41,874 -- 00:05:44,365

He had given me

a lead on a story, that was it.

46

00:
05:44,544 -- 00:05:45,670

When?

47

00:
05:45,845 -- 00:05:48,143

Five years ago

right after the fire.

48

00:
05:48,314 -- 00:05:51,078

-Were you intimate?

-You don't have to answer that.
