Will Liverpool, Leicester or Chelsea Qualify for the UCL?
"Let's start at. What was i think. Effectively may not turn out to be this way chelsea could still go out but a play off for the champions league between chelsea and leicester city it's bridge was a replay of the game on saturday. Then you have a cup final Homemade some not all of the same choices including putting my man reese james in the back three convince And chelsea one. I think in the end it was to wind. And you could say maybe you're gonna start at the end but i thought chelsea really really dominated the day. That was their god. They were after they were really fantastic at times. In the way they build up the movement away from the back under pressure at times. I still alice the plate for draw. And maybe i'm wrong. Maybe that's not. That was the idea.

Maybe no he's on your hard if you play for a draw to to have my against a team like this against him chetty like this to to to expect too much from madison. Nothing the upshot of all this is that we're set up for one of those end of the season kinda three way runs but three-way dances chelsea are playing away to aston villa. A win guarantees them. A champions league. Place is only going to be easy at all we'll get on to this lester. I'm liverpool liverpool beating burnley three now essentially if they both way and they're gonna finish level on points it's going to be decided by goal difference and liverpool now have an edge of four goals in the goal difference so so liver put up again chris perez. That's right liverpool roy. Hodgson his final his final game. He loved to put one over liverpool and less spurs. Who can still still have to play for your petty place. Yeah so clearly lester.

Finally the Jack of hearts walked past alongside the king and Queen of Hearts. Alice Quinn over. She had a rather large head. It was almost as big as the entire upper half of her body. She wore a brocade dress. Patterned with hearts and ornate checkered embroidery. Her face was already quite pink but it only seemed to grow redder with each word. She spoke when the Queen Reached Alice. The whole procession came to a halt. She looked down and asked acidly. Who is this? Alice gave a curtsy and introduced herself. The queen looked at the roses dripping with paint then. She looked down to the gardeners laying on the ground and quaking in fear she asked who are these and what have they done to my roses. Alice answered that it was none of her business. The Queen's face went red with rage. She glared at and began screaming off wetter. Had off with her head at this. The two car jumped up and begged the Queen's pardon in a trembling voice. He began to explain how they were painting the roses before he could get very far. The Queen grunted. I see off with their heads then. The courtiers all nodded and the procession moved on. Alice pulled the gardeners into a large flowerpot and whispered that they wouldn't be beheaded as long as she was around. Three soldiers hung back to carry out the executions but when they couldn't find the gardeners they just shrug their shoulders and ran back to the procession though she was quite nervous about the queen and her fondness for chopping off heads. Alice decided to join them all day. Long people had been talking about the queen maybe of spent some time in her court. Things would finally start to make sense but this truly was a nightmare world if its ruler love nothing more than to decapitate people as she caught up to the procession alice spotted the White Rabbit nervously wringing his hands she began walking alongside him and asked if he had seen the duchess. The rabbits are is went wide in a low whisper. He informed Dallas that the duchess had been sentenced to death by beheading. Alice was about to ask what for when the whole Party came to a halt again. The Queen looked to Alice and asked if she'd been to see the mock turtle yet. Alice shook her head and said she didn't even know what a mock turtle was. The Queen looked at her disdainfully. Why it's the thing. Mock turtle soup is made of now. Come along I'll take you to meet him. The Queen Lead Alice up and over a hill from there. Alice could see a cliff that looked out over the ocean. She pointed out to figures sitting forlornly against a stone wall then. She muttered something about needing to go overseas some executions and wandered off. Alice squinted at the figures she could see that they were a strange looking pair. And one of them seem to have very sharp claws. Alice supposed anything was safer than the murderous queen even so she steeled herself for whoever was waiting at the edge of the cliff. Everyone she'd met today had been incredibly frustrating insulting or just downright mad. Whatever happened next. She was sure that it was bound to be a challenge. As Alice made her way down the hillside the two creatures sitting at the edge of the cliff looked up at her. One was a turtle with the head. Feet and tail of a baby cow. The other was a griffin a winged lion with the head of an eagle. If she'd seen either of these creatures this she might have run away screaming now though after falling down the rabbit hole joining a mad tea. Party and playing croquet with a murderous queen wasn't afraid of anything. Alice walked up to the creatures and told them the Queen had sent her. The Griffin's smiled widely exposing a mouthful of sharp white teeth. He laughed and said. Oh that old bat did she try to execute you yet? She never executes. Nobody you know. Alice said the queen had suggested she asked to hear the mock turtle's story the mock turtle who'd been quietly crying ever since alice arrived invited her to sit down. He said he'd gladly tell her his story and began by saying that he had once been a real turtle at Bat. He broke down in hysterical. Sobs Allison the Griffin waited an exceptionally long time for him to pull himself together. Finally he began again. When we were little we lived in the sea. There was an old turtle and we called him the tortoise because he taught us every day we learned washing reeling and writhing. Then of course ambition distraction uglification and derision. Alice asked what uglification was and the Griffin rolled his eyes. He asked if she knew what beautification was. Alice said she did and the Griffin commented. Well then if you don't understand what uglification is. You really are a simpleton. Alice decided she would rather not ask any more questions. The turtle continued saying that the old classics Master Crab taught laughing and grief. He then put his head in his hands and began to sob again. Finally the turtle looked up from his hands. He said perhaps she should tell him about her adventures as he'd said quite enough about his own sad history. Alice agreed that she had had quite enough of it as well. She began to tell them the story of her own adventures as Alice described. All the trials she'd been through could not help feeling a bit proud of herself. She certainly was a different person than the one she'd been this morning. She still couldn't remember any of her verses but she didn't mind so much anymore as Alice was speaking a horn blue somewhere in the distance it was followed by the sound of shouting as they ran off. She heard the mock turtle singing quietly to himself. So pursue from beautiful sue then he collapsed into sobs the Griffin led alice toward an imposing stone building. They entered it to find that most of the court had already taken their places at the front of the room. Was the king sitting atop a toll podium in a powdered white wig. The Queen was at his side standing in front of them chained at the hands and feet was the Jack of Hearts Alice and the Griffin quietly took their seats near the wood panel. Jury box the jury was made up of birds and small animals each and every one of them were busily scribbling in notebooks alice leaned over to the Griffin and asked. Why are they all writing if the trial hasn't even begun yet the Griffin explained that they were writing down their names in case they forgot them. It made about as much sense as anything in this place. One of the jurors pencils kept making terrible. Squeaking Sounds Alice looked over at him and it was surprised to see that it was bill the Lizard earlier in the day. She kicked him out of a chimney. Alice walked up behind bill and snatched the pencil out of his hand. The lizard thinking he had dropped. It looked around when he was unable to find his pencil. He resorted to trying to write within Ghur. Truly everyone was mad here just then. Alice heard the sound of a gavel. She looked up to see the white rabbit standing at the front of the room.

Nonsense invention imagination. Those were what I went for. I was more likely to read Charles. Dickens during the great expectations period more than the later Bleak House. I was more likely to read. Aristotle phillies than Sophocles. I loved the nonsense of invention and all of my life until very recently reading was helping me pursue my desire to escape Lewis.

It's It means to penetrate whereas Lewis Carroll is a man of the surface. He May let Alice Fall. Down a Hole. That hole is anything but sexual. She grabs jaws of Marmalade facing in the in that. This is an attempt to make an alice for a generation of people who want to hear more about maturation.

I think I had some of my shelter taken away or felt I did yes ills. I thought it was kidnapped for me and so I think I yearn for something that maybe I didn't have. Yes no that I can understand that. Because you see my salvation. I grew up with my grandmother. Living in my house. She lived to be over a hundred years old several years older and she was born in Russia. She didn't speak English. I would speak to her in English. She would talk to me and Russian and yet and we'd play hand games games with each other's fingers And sing songs in Yiddish about those fingers that she taught me and we played what you call cat's cradle which she in Russian yiddish called L. Battle we play with string and so that was what I wanted. I didn't know that I'd get to grow up and be a bookworm. I mean it's a great privilege. It's a great honor and a great surprise and I'm sure you're surprised by how you've grown up to growing up at all. Yeah growing up at all is such a marvelous and inexplicable mystery.

A guy who she was friends with from the age of six who she most attractively met in the Giraffe House in Regent Park and he introduced her to Alice in Wonderland and from that point on all the way up until the dropping of the bombs. They acted out Alice in wonderland when playing together. So this is a young adult novel Alice by heart which is a novel about reading and about reading books that alter your life and your heart and your mind and your language this boy who she was in love with in the way of passion not sex from the age of six now has to burke losses. He is dying and he's down there in the underground station where people are hiding out during the blitz. He's input into seclusion. Red Cross. Nurses are tending to him and two other children. Alice Spencer is She casts them in her mind as the Cheshire cat. There's a Red Cross worker. Who's like the Red Queen? There's a doctor who speaks in Latin diagnosis words and he reminds her of Humpty dumpty and his analysis of Jabra walkie so she's living underground the way Alice did in the first version. Lewis Carroll was probably my first love and Steven. Sater was led to this book by producer. I believe because having written about teenage passion in Spring Awakening and having revolutionised certain kinds of musical theater. It was suggested that he like many others. Take on the opportunity to do something theatrical with our yes. These adaptations will get one aspect of Alice. But as for being adaptations of Alice in Wonderland and through the looking glass they fail. My Guest Steven. Sater has not attempted that. This is an experience of a girl who has experienced homeless. Who's been marked by hours? And now she is in the blitz during World War. Two trying to escape back to wonderland when it was first proposed to me to adapt allison wonderland. I thought it was such a terrible idea for the because the book is such a series of almost hallucinatory encounters these visitation these phantasmagoric visitations. Let's say on the cipher like British young British woman. She has no real character. She has nowhere Arcturus no objective and I had spent eight years adapting spring awakening. Which is you know. The first great German expressionist play and learning by introducing songs. How we WANNA go on journeys with these characters that the songs take us into their hearts and minds spring awakening by the Great Franz Vehicle and author of the Lulu play which turned into a fantastic opera person. Who did vote trick? Um It's part of the history of German literature theatrical literature at its most bizarre perverse intense. What led you to say okay. I'll do alice when you might have gone onto Lulu. I have often thought of going onto Lulu and I love Alban Berg's I love that opera so much that I tread lightly around it books meant everything to me and I'm saying this is someone I know who I'm saying this to. I was very ill as a child. I was confined to bed. I was confined to my room. Books really were my world. They marked my life and I just thought what an opportunity to create a show about what literature can mean in this dark time in our nation. I think we have to reaffirm the power of the imagination and try and reignite wonder in ourselves That was the spirit within which I took on the show which became an eight year journey of its own for five years into that journey. The producer said to me. What if you created a book to China that is terrible idea? I'm not gonNA write a tie in book. And he said you know but like a book of pictures and the moment he said it. I just thought of you know what is use of a book with Pictures Conversations. He and I began to think of a book in conversation with all these other books that I'd love this histories centuries of British literature that met so much to me that classics that I met so much man what a book made what a book can contain of Culture Lewis Carroll who wrote Alice in Wonderland Name Lewis Carroll whose name. He was a math teacher and rector. I think Reverend His name was trawls lot would because he had a starter this dude and he would say Dodo Dodge. His students called him Dodo. And there's a Dodo. Allison Wonderland down in the underworld bought by accident. Because he was telling stories he liked young girls. He liked to photograph them. There are people who have their suspicions but he seems to have been entirely innocent but if people have a different way of thinking about it that is also a possibility but there is a Dodo and there are the characters of Alice who are now down in the underground and the Tube station during the blitz. And they're being classified by our Alice. Who is not just a reader? She's a memorizer. Y'All she knows Allison Wonderland and the truth is that Allison Wonderland is magical accident. There are chess games and puzzles in it. There are anagrams and there are a word games. Their a word puzzles in fact. It's a huge accident. Allison Wonderland is the book in English Literature. That anticipates James. Joyce in some ways. The first book that relate Martin changed my life. This is an as an older young man was was ulysses. I was at Washington University. I was studying with gas was like a mentor to me at that time me. Mcguinness was a philosopher novelist as well yeah one of the best literary. Sas We have the author of what I think is the greatest book to have ever been published in my time the tunnel and books of essays on Literature Short Stories. I mean he's he's God he only died a couple of years ago and we live in morning yes but he was my teacher. Yes and he We really hit it off in a profound way. Way I'm guessing I and I had a nice dead classics with him. I studied philosophy with him but he was also the person who introduced me to Boras. He was the person that introduced me to Cortazar. You know and Rocca But I in the middle of my Leno at the end of my sophomore year I was trapped in a fire. I was on fire. I had to jump a third story balcony to escape and prior to that I had spent the entire semesters studying ulysses and had written a version of ulysses you know what I thought was twenty years. I was in one thousand nine at the time. I thought I had the Hubris but I thought I could take. What choice did to the Odyssey and I could do that to ulysses and write the story about my professor and me. Wow and I wrote this work in twenty four chapters and I. It was my sumer and it. It burned up in the fire and burned nearly burned. You Hunt to Jim. I had to a newly per shattered. Fractured like twenty vertebrae and I was broken and burned and I was laid up on the striker frame which is like an earning board was turned every two hours and I had a page Turner I could turn with my teeth and I. I have to write something that can last and I began teaching and I used to talk. You talked to me before the show about your phone conversations with with bill he called me he would call me in the hospital and I began teaching myself ancient. Greek and I learned integrate without would I never studied at him? I never learned the form of of choruses the chorus Greek tragedy. There would be no spring awakening because it opened up to me whole possibilities of how songs can function and dramas ulysses has meant so much to me. I brought it to this today. Because it's so momentous to me to be meeting you think your. Alice is the Alice of a girl on the verge of maturing and she's experiencing like the characters in spring awakening a biological change. That wasn't the world of Lewis Carroll. I don't think he understood biological change. I think he understood that God could lead you pass sense into nonsense and then deeper into nonsense and so. I started to buy as a kid. His logic books because there were syllogisms a series of statements that are designed to help you draw conclusions but thereby goal was carol so they have to do with sun dolls and Buju rooms.

Hi Okay that makes sense reliable johnny. Yeah we're not showing bacne why she did. Alice seemed quite surprised when she talked about it. Afterwards I mean it just it just makes perfect sense if you're trying to get back to moment in time to grandma like she needed to get back to like take more reliable transport yeah and the sponsorship saw on was about the trip to scream that could get vallas brings. They didn't need to prove that could get back on. Yeah right once you've done. They signed. I could do it. So they're acting in the data testing on the train at Alice. Made the decision then to sell mccaw and also get the train back to her friend. Plane came from Melbourne to join her and they made the journey dot com by train. Sounds Nice and Allison. Kathleen arrived time on the allowance of September. The newspaper describes them as some bent but happy one day. Alice talked about a lot when she got back in. The newspaper was hanged cows with other women who lived in the outback. Many of these women were living very isolated lives and they will align for weeks at a time while their husbands were out driving jobs. Men Do and say these are generally very excited. See Allison Jesse and also communists like. Why are you hit by choice? But they were very happy to Kinda have alison she was with Jesse Kathleen turn off and connect them with the outside world. One authentic Natal's when she got back to me because she just couldn't get them on station and other asked if she would get out in the modern style at noon short like Alison. Yes this woman. Austell US to cut from the had probably made any confidences when she was but like she was quite apprehensive about cutting this woman's hair she grade and she did it and Kathleen apparently was like harangue is a good cup when it was done. Which is that they really. Don't say all the people who wakes at a time and liked by the time someone comes out and he ran. You'll be like this. Used to be very fashionable. I'll yeah fashionable went out like lady. Motorist came and I was like. Wow you have such adventures Maureen Exactly House Monroe Comeback. Until we had the best. Wait a minute yeah the lie so these women obviously made a big impression on Alice. So anti returned Frankie Asta if she get married someday if only for arrest and arrests arrestees Cohen. I think it's only a change of work. Going to cite. Like studies have short generally but upon marriage women do more housework than they did when they single admendment. Let's bring more work to house lay do. Yeah thanks guys yes so. If you're a man in a hassle with a woman maybe to think about that today go wash your dishes. Okay so we're going to talk about death now. I'm just flagging that. 'cause she died quite young quite suddenly. Okay could spend a lot of time doing that to sex and death. But I don't want to be a big focus at the upside. Yeah try and talk about pretty briefly and not speculate too much on the eight nine the seventeenth of September so. It's just under a week. After she returned from Alice Springs. Alex was at the back of the guard cleaning the gums she'd taken on the trip while the MP's Mary Eighty said she had a shot out the back to find alice lying on the floor having been shot in the head with hospital where she died very soon after in k. have friends and family testified? At the inquest. I had no reason to believe that Alice was considering suicide before her death and her death was ruled accidental. As that was a bullet in the barrel click on and she didn't know she was cleaning Wintel in two thousand six Frankie's granddaughter panel. Halley zander published. A biography of Frankie in which she writes Alex was to Alto not to check. I Bet Khatri before setting about cleaning had gone in fact. She was shot accidentally by young employees. The garage did not neither. Koch had been left in the gun. When she outfits biographer Loretta Smith Down that this was generally the family understanding of what had happened. That young employees probably eighteen year old. Mary Eighty had been with Alice. When was cleaning her gums and that she'd picked up Allah's revolt when not knowing that still bulletin and the gun had accidentally gone off killing and then this employee and houses family had decided to cover that up to protect Mary. Eighty from a manslaughter charge. Mike Sense I guess sounds like an accident yet like it sounds like accident. The family story makes sense. Explains a few kind of inconsistency than what was said at the inquest yet. Just about like who went out the back window and things like that. Yeah the family story to me. Seems like the Against Tonight didn't want us to spend a while taking the details and yeah I don't want this to be enough site about how else died. Alison funeral was held three days after her death garage closed for the first time since it opened in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred and fourteen. Employees attended the funeral without uniforms and carried her coffin to the grave. One newspaper reported for women not in public life. The funeral is amazingly big won. Miss Adamson was a brave woman. Attracted one by Taliban lie with magnetism drew people instinct away towards another very possibly nine woman in Melbourne was better nine off. Alice's death was taken up by her friend and Accountant. Fm HD. Ethel said when she took on the role. I'm not taking up the work for the Solo Cups of making money. But with the idea of making a memorial to my dear friends Alexandersson. The garage was eventually sold off Contained in on the until it ends its life as Alexandersson Merger School in the nineteen eighties. What happened at Amazon mortar school? It was just driving lessons by that point Continue as an all female garage into the nineteen fifties. I blade so it had a male of female management earn like garage yet garage in the same neighborhood and he'd spoiled Allison's well that makes sense. Yeah the building itself that Alice had.

Monash is like an important guy and that kind of shows the level of society. Jt was interacting at this time when Alice was born. I'm going to make a very trivial comment at this moment. But it's always weird to me when it's like the nineteenth century and you get someone being cold by that initials like Jay feels like such a modern thing. It's also what an American thing like do it?

I think we're going to have a lot assault cases but until then i want to tell you a story about a very infamous woman a woman who's infamy could only be compared to that of o._j. Simpson's scott peterson or even casey anthony in the sixties she was all anyone could talk about her face made the front page of newspapers and and she was hated by the public accused of killing her two young children but now half a century later we can finally re examine the case from all all sides and see if the public was really warranted or if maybe just maybe she was the victim having lost her children and then put on trial as part of a witch hunt just because the police didn't like her. This is the story of alice crimmins <music>. Uh in nineteen sixty five alice crimmins was living a life far from the public eye on a quiet street in brooklyn. Her life wasn't glamorous. It was in fact the exact kind of mundane messy that you often find behind closed doors. She had married her husband eddie very young and now that they were in their mid twenties with the two kids. She just wasn't happy anymore. Eddie would stay out late. Drinking with the boys after work and alice wanted more passion more sex more happiness just more more in one thousand nine sixty five allison eddie were separated at the time eddie had gone a new place while alice state in their apartment with two kids at junior who was five and four year old alice junior. They actually called missy now in june. The two parents were deep in a custody battle over the kids. Eddie was furious is that alice was sleeping with other men and he didn't want his children exposed to the comings and goings of men which he was sure was happening and to be fair. It was like alice had a reputation with the people in their neighborhood that she was this smoking hot redhead who loved the company of men and honestly today. I'm not sure many people would look twice at her her for what she was doing but in the sixties at the very cusp of the women's liberation movement alice stood for everything that threatened to ruin the status quo but there are things that said alice did that gave eddie somewhat of a good case for custody so for example one day als left her kids with their mate and she went to some like farewell farewell party that was on a ship or a boat or whatever and the maid eventually had to call eddie when alice just never return like she was gone for a couple of days. She didn't say anything she didn't leave money. The made says yeah that's not a good luck yeah and what happens is allah says that she accidentally got stuck on the boat which ended up like exhaling off but to everyone else. It looked like she just went off to party and didn't have a second thought about her children. Now alice's lawyer assured her that everything would be okay. Courts wanted to keep the kids with their mother during this time and since she already had them it would probably take law for them to be removed plus eddie. He wasn't exactly perfect. His love for alice bordered on like an unhealthy obsession after they separated eddie would spy on alice follow her around town. Watch the house to see who came and went but even more he fully bugged her apartment. What's yet there are times times when he would go further and he would have these bugs but he would then actually sneak into the basement below alice's bedroom and listened to her as she was with other men and sometimes he'd stay there quietly through the entire event and other times he barged in and interrupt them sending her lover's running naked to their cars god yeah. It's a little messed up. Yeah and eddie didn't date or so much as look at other women from what i can tell he was fixated on alice even if she was fixated on other other people so there was messy and each felt that they were suited to be a better parent alliston want the kids with eddie and i'm not sure if eddie didn't want the kids with allies is or if he just wanted to hurt alice or maybe he even knew that she wanted the kids so bad and if he had them maybe she would want him. It seemed in mid june of nineteen in sixty five that this was the worst of their problems but they wouldn't know how wrong they were. Until the morning of june fourteenth alice woke up that morning morning and went to go get the kids they were usually up well before her making noise but this morning with eerily quiet and when she opened the door to the room that they shared shared she was surprised to find the kids beds both empty now. She knew they were nowhere else in the apartment she would have heard them and so her first thought is to call her axe ax and she asked eddie dee. You have the kids. He says no and she says do not fool around and he insists they're not here. I don't have them and she says eddie. Please don't do this to me and she's pleading at this point pleading for him to stop the battles between them but i think deep down also pleading with him to say that he i did have them because the alternative was so much worse eddy swears. He doesn't have the kids and he tells her go check outside. It wasn't that long ago that he lived lived in the house as well and he knew the kids could wonder off like they had snuck out in the winter before and were found by a neighbour outside just their nightgowns so he tells her go check with the neighbors. Go check back outside. I'm heading over but the neighbors didn't have them and when eddie arrived to confronted with the realization that this wasn't a cruel trick and a call was placed to the police at nine forty four in the morning. Just a patrol officer was sent at first and most of the detectives who heard the radio. Oh call out didn't even really give it a second thought like these are just two kids that wondered off. It happened all the time because really again like what was the alternative idea that someone would take two children from their own bedroom like at this point something like that was almost unheard of and seemed impossible to the police but there wasn't investigator named jerry peering who's spidey senses perked up when he heard that something felt wrong and he was going to go to the scene this would be his case and from the moment he walked in the door. He knew what it was. That was wrong. It was the mother she claimed that she had woken up found the kids missing missing then colder husband and then they called the police so he was expecting to see this distraught mother weeping an inconsolable but instead alice louis crimmins looked impeccable not a hair out of place her makeup fully done and he didn't like her almost immediately and his distaste and in distrust of her grew more and more as he looked around the home now the first thing that caught his attention was the hook and eye latch outside outside of the children's room wait on the outside yeah on the outside like almost as if she was locking the kids in the room so he he was gonna make sure to ask allison about this when he interviewed her now he also notices that there's this bureau underneath the window where the kids would have presumably you move we crawled out of if that's the way that they went and in a later testimony jerry would swear that there was a layer of undisturbed dust on the bureau rotate right on the top dust that couldn't have been there if anyone called in or out of that room meaning to him that the kids would have had to have left through their door and it with someone who is in the apartment that took them away so jerry keeps walking around the apartment some more checking the kitchen and in the kitchen. He says that he spots what's a box of manicotti in the trash and then he sees leftover manicotti in addition the fridge and things like didn't didn't mean anything to him at the time but this would play heavily into his interpretation of the case later on now along with the manicotti box in the trash he also noticed a dozen or so liquor bottles so weird feelings in the kitchen he moves to alice's bedroom and he finds a small address book and in just a cursory glance of it showed him that it was filled with the names of men something that jerry thought was wrong for a married woman and mother of two then then he finds the thing that in my opinion sent him over the edge there was a bag underneath alex's bed filled with cards and letters and signed programs from other men and some of these men were pretty prominent like for example there was this program program from some events signed by senator robert kennedy and there were letters from other men in political power who referred to alice affectionately as rusty and at this point jerry knew that it was time to get rusty talking but he knew that he had to do it separately from her husband so jerry tells his partner okay you take any and i'll take the way he called her. What yet he. I mean that just shows you. I i mean he's been there for like a couple of minutes a half hour and he already has this idea of how much he dislikes alice crimmins so not only did jerry not like what else represented i think he looked at her and saw an opportunity careers and promotions were made on big cases back then and jerry thought this could be his big case an alice knew from the very first interaction they had that jerry had no interest in finding her kids. His only interest was in alice when they sit down together. Alice recounts the day before jerry in detail. She says she slept in a little a bit that day and then around two thirty. She taken the kids for a picnic. They stay there for a couple of hours and then left around four thirty and she remembers this clearly early because she needed to call her lawyer about the custody hearing so she was sure to make sure she got to a payphone before five o'clock because he was afraid that her lawyer begun by then but when she called her lawyer he told her listen to be working late. I'm super busy right now. Give me a call back a little bit later so she decides then to go to the store and pick up some things for dinner before war returning to their home when asked what she purchased alice said she got some frozen veal string beans and soda now witnesses would later say that they saw alice alice get home with the kids that evening and she was carrying a big brown paper sack. She walked into the house with kids running in front of her so things are seeming like they're kind of adding up so she fed the kids called her lawyer back. They talked about the custody hearing a little bit that was coming up and it was coming up in just like a week and specifically they talked about that former made who it was like saying that alice left the kids with her and she was also saying that alice odor six hundred dollars of back pay and was threatening to testify against alice. No she again again like i said was the one who had been left with the kids and she does this like shady thing where she's basically like. I'm going to testify against you four eddie unless you you can pay me the six hundred dollars yet that doesn't really seem legit kind of feels like extortion yeah and i think that's what alice thought to and like alice swears like a the only one hundred and fifty dollars tops and here's the thing about alice crimmins and i think this is important to remember throughout the rest of the story. She is a woman <unk> who refuses to be messed with the fact that this woman was trying to exploit her custody battle to get money only enticed alice not to even pay her one hundred fifty dollars. She said listen letter testify. She isn't getting anything out of me for being a liar so after that phone call after dinner alba suggested to the kids that they go for a drive so she piles them into the car and then takes off the drive was an aimless. She wanted to go by her ex husband's new apartment mint. Is there a reason why she would want to do that. Well you know partly to scope it out. He just recently moved there and i think she wanted to see it but also they they had this very unhealthy relationship like i told you eddie bugged her police and he'd hide in her basement or scope out her house looking to see if there's anyone else there will she she would sometimes drive by eddie's house to see if he was watching her or if he was home in which case she knew that he wasn't able to follow her like it was a very messed up situation super unhealthy but divorce is a messy business so she scopes out her husband's house or her separate husband's apartment and she doesn't think he's following her so they drive for about an hour or.
