Detective Lugow : Okay Rebecca, I know that it has been a long couple of days but can you tell me what happened last night?
Rebecca Gailen : I uh...yeah I think so.
DL : Why don't we start with why you decided to go to the house?
RG : We had driven Donna to the O.C. for a conference. Charlie wanted to stay the night because...he thought...
DL : What did he think?
RG : What we all thought. It had been two days...he was worried...
RG: I really wanted to just come home...
DL : Do you remember what time you got to the house?
RG : I uh...I think it was about seven-thirty?
DL : So you and Charlie arrived at the house at seven thirty. Did you notice anything odd before you went inside?
RG : No, the sun had gone down. It was dark, I...we couldn't really see anything.
DL: So you got to the door. Then what happened?
RG : Charlie insisted on going in first. I unlocked the door and followed him in.
DL : And you didn't notice anything odd when you walked in?
RG : No...uh...all of the lights were off. I couldn't see anything.
DL : Then what happened?
RG : I disarmed the alarm and flipped on the light.
DL : Do you remember what happened next?
RG : I...I'm not sure...
DL : I know it is difficult but I need you to try?
RG : I...uh...I was trying to remember where I left my laptop.
DL : Do you remember where Charlie was during that time?
RG : He was still walking through the house.
DL : What happened next?
RG : I...I remember there was a smell. It was metallic and I couldn't place what it was...I can't...
DL : Concentrate...try and think back to what happened next.
RG : I'm sorry...I don't...
DL : Take your time, Rebecca. There's no hurry.
RG : I...can...I can see my couch. It's red...my couch is red...
DL : What else, what else do you see?
RG : I don't understand! I don't have a red couch? Is that right? Is what I said right?
DL : I can't answer that, Rebecca, I'm sorry.
RG : Lug, please...
DL : Listen to me. I know it is hard, but you need to remember what happened without my influence.
RG : I should be able to remember! Why can't I remember what happened?
DL : It's a traumatic event, it may take some time.
RG : I don't have time!
DL : Rebecca, you need to calm down.
RG : Don't tell me to calm down! He's destroying my life!
DL : Pause, Detective requests a break. Resuming interview with R Gailen postponed until further notice.
