MIKE ENTERS. GIVES A MEAN LOOK TO ROBIN AS SHE LEAVES.
Hello, what is your name?
The girl that just left, Robin, she is your girlfriend correct?
Have you two gotten into a fight lately?
Because you just showed disgust when asked about
your relationship. Something must have happened.
Well it didn’t. What does this have to do with Mr. Gainix’s death?
Everything. Just tell me why you are disgusted with Robin

I had no clue. Honey, did you?
No, I am appalled. Robin is such a nice girl.
Mr. Burke, I am going to need to talk to your wife alone.
Because when I asked if you knew about Robin, you
looked surprised and she wasn’t.
(eyebrows pulled up and together)
You don’t think Mike killed Mr. Gainix do you?
He is our prime suspect.
My son wouldn’t kill anyone he is such a
good Christian boy.
I am sure he is but what do you know about your son
and Robin’s relationship?
They were happy until this year, when she meet
Mr. Gainix. She would find ways to stay after
school to see him. Mike got tired of her acting
like they weren’t dating and spending so much
time with Mr. Gainix.
Did he ever plan to attack Mr. Gainix?
No, he was a good boy. He was just in so much
pain. She was hurting him. He loves her so much.
Did he kill Mr. Gainix?
No, I did. I just went to talk to him and he got angry,
and pushed me so I pushed him back. I didn’t mean
for him to fall out the window.
POLICE MEN STEP FORWARD AS IF TO ARREST.
Mrs. Burke, I know what it’s like as a parent to
Want to protect your kid. What he has done can’t
I told you I killed him not Mike.
You didn’t kill him. Your son did. You showed fear ,
for your son, and disbelief in everything you said about
how you killed Mr. Gainix.
AT JAIL, LIGHTMAN IS LOOKING THROUGH BARS TALKING TO MIKE.
Tell me why you killed Mr. Gainix and how it happened?
I was jealous of how much time Robin was spending with
Him, she was my girlfriend and I loved her, I gave her everything
,she was my everything. And as far as how I killed him…
I just simply went to talk to him about it asking him to
Leave Robin alone. He told me it was not my decision,
it was hers and that he loved her. He said that if I really
loved her, I would let her make the decision to say with
me or go with him. This made me mad so I told him
that he had to leave her alone or I would go to the school
board. This made Mr. Gainix mad and he told me I was not
to talk about this to anyone and get out of their relationship.
So, I picked up the soda bottle on his desk and hit him with it.
I didn’t know it killed him, I though it just knocked him out. I drug
his body to outside the window to make it look like he had fallen.
When I punched the glass to make it look like where he had fallen , some of the glass fell and cut his throat.
Now that’s the truth.
