and hid the body. That’s the reason for the bloodstain on the wall. If it is Paine’s blood. We’ll get the lab report shortly. Now, we can establish the time of the ing as between :, when Paine must’ve got here and, uh, :am, when the er knocked out the watchman on the pier. Hello, Dixon. You know Mr Gilroy from the DA’s office. Sure. How are you? Hello. A lot of fancy footwork you did last night, Dixon. You and Mr Paine. It couldn’t be helped, Lieutenant. I can’t understand how you didn’t see him. You came in here at :, Klein talked to you on the phone. That’s right. Paine came, packed and left at :. That’s when the taxi picked him up. You must’ve practically passed each other. Well, he wasn’t here, so I thought he might be drinking. I had a look in a couple of bars. It’s queer to figure a guy on the lam is going to be sitting around bars. What time did Dixon come back? About :. And you left right after that? Right. We started chasing Paine. It’s obvious. He lays a fake trail. He goes to the Pennsylvania Station, and then he decides to come back and hide out in his own apartment. He figures the police have been there and they won’t come looking again. What time did Jiggs Taylor say he was here? About :. That pretty well fingers him. Yeah, and he came down crazy angry, according to his daughter, ready to knock Paine’s block off. You’re wasting your time on Taylor. How’s that? It looks completely definite: motive, opportunity. Scalise did it. I don’t see that at all, Dixon. I’m telling you, Scalise knifed Morrison. He was afraid Paine would go to the police, so he sent someone to finish him off. That doesn’t stand up. Whoever ed Paine ed him by accident: he only meant to slug him. A Scalise hood would’ve taken no chances on a rumpus, he’d have knifed or shot him. Yes, Benson? We’ve got Jiggs Taylor and his daughter outside. Bring them in, Harrington. Has he been talking? A mile a minute. You’d think he was going to a picnic. I think we can wrap the case up tonight. Get statements from both of them. I’m Lieutenant Thomas.
