Storyboard Text

  • Important Information According to Tommy Nelson: On Thursday morning, the kidnapper calls and demands that the younger Nelson son, Tommy, was to bring the money in unmarked bills in a duffel bag. He was told to park in a downtown lot and carry the bag through an alley to a drop site in a nearby park, called McGalliard Park.  Bernard Nelson did not speak to the kidnapper.  Tommy answered the phone.  Bernard agreed to the terms. A 2 A.M. pay-off. A million dollars and no police.
  • Ok, Tommy, tell us what happened...anything you can remember.
  • "I know we should have called the police, but the kidnapper said he'd kill my brother if I did."
  • Tommy's Testimony: "I was in the alley when I heard footsteps behind me.  The next thing I knew, I was hit in the head.  I fell to the ground.  My vision was hazy, and all I could see was his back in the dim light.  He was a tall, white male.  He was wearing jeans, a dark cardigan, and dark shoes. He took off with the duffel bag of money.  I'm sorry, but that is all I remember."
  • Meanwhile..... At approximately 3 A.M. investigators discovered Richard lying on the ground unconscious but with a visible injury to the head. He was about four blocks from the "drop" location.  When Richard finally came to, this is what he told investigators...
  • Look around do you know where you are?
  • "Where are am I?   I don't know how I got here. My kidnapper never showed his face.  His voice was familiar, but I couldn't place it.  He put a hood over my head and knocked me out.  Next thing I know, I'm here.  
  • Let's see.  Yeah, I'm near McGalliard Park.
  • Back at the office, you and Detective Jones review the suspects.
  • Suspects the the kidnapping of Richard Nelson: Suspect #1:   Unknown  Suspect #2: Tommy Nelson Something is off about Tommy's story.  He was the only one to speak with the kidnapper, but something else seems iffy.  NOTE:  Suspicous about Richard's story. The pieces aren't fitting together. Did he have something to do with this?  What could be a motive?
