On a Saturday Molly Clarkson was celebrating her 50th birthday. All her relatives had come: her children (Diane, Jackie and Roger) and her brother Albert. They were all used to asking Molly for money, except Jackie, who still lived with her mother. That night one by one they all asked her for money again, but she refused saying that no one would get money any more from her. They were quite upset and angry. The next morning Roger was woken up by a cry from his mothers room. When he got there he saw Diane coming out, who had just found her mother dead. Roger is shocked. Diane called the doctor who came immediately. He was puzzled because Molly had been in good health and he decides to call the police. The police came quickly to the scene and started their investigation. Detective Inspector Walsch and Sergeant Foster did the questioning. Albert told them that he had been angry at Molly the previous night, just like all the others, because she would not give them the money they needed. He had been the first to go to bed and had gone to Molly’s bedroom to say goodnight. He thought he had heard someone going downstairs around midnight. The next one, Jackie, admitted she had also been in Molly’s room that night. The police had found an empty bottle of sleeping pills. She had heard someone around midnight and it had been mother to get some dinner for the dogs. She got angry when asked whether she needed her mother’s money. Roger told the same story as the others. He wanted money to build houses on Molly’s land together with a friend and had wanted Molly to move. Last came Diane, who admitted taking milk to her mother last night. She also made clear that she did not like her mother, just like everybody else, even Jackie.
