The Questions

There are a million questions I COULD ask but these are the ones I’ve come up with so far. I don’t feel the need to ask directly about the murder (ie what exactly happened as the murder was happening) but I do have questions about what happened right before or right after. I do wonder if the audience notices anything missing (there’s so much to consider) or has questions themselves. Third part perspective is always interesting.


Were you high at the time of the murder?


When did you all decide to kill them? (A day before? A week? An Hour?)


Who came up with the plan?


Who decided to kill them?


How did you decide how to kill them?


How did you feel about it afterward?


Do you regret it happening?


Did you help hide the bodies?


Did you ever consider that you might get caught during the planning?


When did you know you were caught?


Why did you accept the plea deal?


Did you tell anyone about the murder before you were caught?
