The police set up headquarters in the Community Centre where Det Sgt Phillips questions the residents while Det. Chief Insp. Patterson interviews Ray and Jerry at the station. Len is brought in, not knowing what's going on. Phillips questions Annie and Billy as to when Ray and Jerry left the Rovers. The regulars speculate as to the identity of the woman killed. Ken doesn't think he or Janet should say anything about what they heard until they are asked. Alf tells the shocked regulars that the police are treating the matter as a murder. Patterson questions Len and asks him where he went after leaving the Rovers. Len says he left home at 1.15pm after finishing writing out a tender and drove to Grindrods in Queen Street. He was then picked up by them at 2.30pm. Patterson shows him a photo of Lynn Johnson that was found in her handbag and he identifies her. Bet confirms to Phillips that she saw Lynn and Len in the Rovers and she left the pub in an upset state. Len tells Patterson how he was helping Lynn and is staggered to learn that she's dead and she died in No.9. Len identifies Lynn's body as Roy Johnson can't be found. Patterson asks him to account for the missing hour. Len says he called on Mr Johnson but he was out and he spoke to the lodger. Annie tells Phillips that Len seemed relieved when Lynn left him in the pub. Jerry confirms that very few people ever came to No.9 on council business. Patterson questions Ray if Len is violent. The police refuse to let Len, Ray or Jerry go. Albert tells Phillips about the scream and tells them he heard Len's voice.
