PHONE CALL RECORD: DOLOWITZ TO MS. HAMPTON, THERAPIST OF THE DECEASED. DATE: 10/10/01 TIME: 8:14 P.M., EASTERN STANDARD TIME
- DOLOWITZ: Is this Mrs. Hampton?
- AMY: This is she. Did you find [xxx]?
- DOLOWITZ: We did. She was at her apartment.
- AMY: Was she hurt? Had she hurt anyone?
- DOLOWITZ: Well, ma’am, that’s why we’re calling you. You said that [xxx] was in your office at about 10:23 this morning, correct?
- AMY: Yes, that’s correct. I called 911 at about 10:32, and their records will attest to that. Can you please answer my question?
- DOLOWITZ: Ma’am, we found your patient dead in your apartment.
- AMY: I beg your pardon?
- DOLOWITZ: Not only was she dead, she was horribly dead. Looked like a piece of beef jerky that someone chewed on at their leisure. Coroner puts her estimated T.O.D. at about 3 p.m three days ago.
- AMY: Then they’re wrong. She was in my office this morning, alive and screaming and breaking lamps. You must have confused her with someone else.
- DOLOWITZ: She had an address book full of logged appointments with you. Unless there’s another Mrs. Hampton working on getting certified as a therapist at your building?
- AMY: There’s not. I have audio recordings of all of our interactions, including the one from this morning. Fax me the forms and they’re all yours. Call me in to identify the body, interrogate me, whatever you need. I saw that woman in my office today and I will stand by that testimony.
- DOLOWITZ: We’ll take you up on that offer. One more thing before I go, ma’am.
- AMY: What is it?
- DOLOWITZ: There was a note left on a picture for you at the apartment. We’re not sure who the photo was, but the note said “It was always my face”. Don’t know if that means anything to you.
