Clues and witnesses
Hanna Nelson, victim: "It was a quiet party. Me and Emily went there together, and we were dancing and having fun. A guy named John Zimmerman came up and offered to get us some drinks. I don't drink, but he insisted and he was so sweet, so I took a couple sips from the plastic cup he gave me. Then we danced with him, and Emily said we just had to have another drink, to toast our friendship, so I had one more. She gave me a little more of her drink, and then John wanted to go somewhere quieter. He took me by the hand and led me to a back room. Everything was a blur. When I woke up I was almost naked. And there was blood between my legs. – I used to be a virgin."
Emily Carr, victim's friend: "Hanna loves to have fun at parties – she's a real Wild Child, I love her! She'll drink anything that comes past. When they started playing slow songs, that jerk John Zimmerman came up with some drinks and started pawing all over Hanna. They had a their fun, drank some more, and she took his hand and followed him to one of the back rooms. They were gone a long time, and I decided to go find Hanna. I found Zimmerman first. He was quickly buttoning his pants. Everything seemed really tense, like something bad happened. In one of the rooms I found by Hanna, half-naked, and her eyes were all glossed over. It was obvious: Zimmerman drugged her and raped her."
John Zimmerman, man from the party: "Yes, I like Hanna, and we had a little fun at the party. We danced, we drank, and went in the back to hang out. But nothing happened – we just kissed, and then her psycho girlfriend Emily broke into the bedroom and shoved me out the door. Emily has been chasing me for a long time, and she wasn't happy that I like Hanna instead. As I was leaving, I heard Hanna say she felt dizzy and couldn't keep her eyes open."
We found signs of forcible penetration on the victim's body, but no foreign biological traces, either semen or saliva. We did, however, find traces of spermicidal lubricant, a typical sign of a condom. The girl's blood showed a slightly elevated alcohol content, but the Rohypnol in her system was off the charts. Apparently, Rohypnol was mixed into the victim's drink. She would have been become completely unconscious, and easy prey for a rapist.
We found traces of blood on the bed. Next to the bed was a spray can of female deodorant, a pair of scissors, a scarf, and torn condom package.
Emily Carr: friend of the victim. Emily has been in love with John Zimmerman for a long time, but he always ignores her and favors her friend Hanna Nelson, and she just couldn't take it. So Emily decided to take revenge on them both.
