Well readers and others, this is my last post. I will be back again tomorrow for my TRS fun. Please join me. See ya then and thank you.
Det. Marker recalled that as Mitch sat in the interrogation room of the police department, he was visible nervous. According to the detective, Mitch “bit his nails and drank an abundance of water” offered to him by the officers. Through an interpreter, officers interrogated Mitch concerning Jeremy’s attraction to the heterosexual man, which he had kept secret from police when first questioned.
According to the detectives’, Mitch did not answer right away. The detectives’ viewed this gesture as a stalling motion. Then slowly, choosing his words carefully, Mitch began to sign.
He told the officers, he had kept the proposition secret because, he did not want police believing that he was gay or that he killed Jeremy. He cited the college’s rule that “trouble” of any kind, would result in expulsion. The college did not allow second chances. Reportedly, the waiting list for enrollment was long.
When asked by Det. Marker why he felt Jeremy was sexually attracted to him, Mitch explained that the two watched a movie together in Jeremy’s room one evening. “Just hang’n out,” he said. Then, Jeremy made a pass at him, which he said shocked him. He claimed he immediately made it clear; he was not a homosexual and was not interested in Jeremy in that manner. He said Jeremy would not take “no” for an answer, saying, “ ‘just give it a try.’ ” Mitch claimed Jeremy grew angry.
When the detective insinuated that the two then fought, Mitch denied it, but the detectives’ did not believe him.
Smiling like the spider that ate the fly, Det. Marker insisted that if a man came on to him the way Jeremy had with him, he would “pound his face in.” The detective claimed Mitch again denied he and Jeremy had fought.
