the suspects

Henchman Sr.

“I never got the credit I deserved. After all these years he never once said “good job”. A little gratitude can go a long way in this industry.”

The Mistress

“He always said I was to die for, I guess he was right. Of course im going to miss him, but my heart heals quickly, and there’s plenty of fish in the sea.”

The Chauffeur

“I was his loyal right hand man for 6 years without a single raise. I’m not saying he deserved to die, but he wasn’t exactly a generous, upstanding man.”

Henchman Jr.

“I appreciated the opportunity he gave me. Two weeks working for him, and I had already made more money than a year at my last job.”
