In Cold Blood

I'll talk facts, not theories.
It happened around 2:00 a.m.
All four were apparently killed
by the same weapon.

Shotgun, 12-gauge.
Mr. Clutter's throat was cut.

Before he was shot?
All four were tied
with the same nylon sash-cord...

...sold in most hardware stores.
And their mouths were taped.
How were they tied? What kind of knots?
Can we see police pictures?
-Find the murder weapon?
-Not yet.

-Any clues or fingerprints?
-Lots. All belong to the family.

They say that Nancy's boyfriend
is a prime suspect.

-Is that what they say?
-He was the last one to see them alive.

-Except the killers.
-Then there were more than one?

-Were the women sexually molested?
-The coroner says not.

-Why didn't the dog bark?
-He didn't bark?

-Nobody heard him.
-Nobody heard the gunshots either.

Mr. Dewey, in your opinion...
:37:04 you think it could have been
an inside job, sir?

-Why didn't Mr. Clutter resist?
-Mr. Dewey, just a moment, Mr. Dewey.

What about the hired man?
His check was made out for $1,707.
Mr. Clutter's first premium
on a straight life policy...

...worth $40,000.
Double indemnity makes it $80,000.
And that makes it a strange coincidence.
And that's all it is, a coincidence.
I didn't catch your name.
