Bailey, in his cross, went after her on this.
Q. How long had you had the note?
A. I had had it, I believe, about two weeks.
Q. Okay, and you had taken steps to effectuate this escape as outlined in the plan?
Q. Now, you said the note was found. Where was the note found?
A. At the Madison Hotel
A. Downstairs in the lobby
Q Had you dropped it somewhere?
A. I may have
Q. You say you may have?
A. That’s correct
Q. Do you remember being questioned by Mr. Dement (Bailey’s co-counsel) as to where that note might have been?
Q. And where did you tell him you had left it?
A. Well, first of all I said I didn’t know anything about the note
Q. But you admitted this wasn’t true. Where did you ultimately tell him you had left the note?
A. In my purse
Q. In your room, in your purse, correct?
A. That’s correct.
Q. So that anyone who had gotten it must have illegally
Q. You now say you lost it in the lobby where the police might legitimately----
A. Yes, because I lied to Mr. Dement.
Q. What’s that?
A. Because I lied to Mr. Dement
Q. Now, is this note the kind of thing you could inadvertently leave lying around a hotel lobby, knowing that if it were discovered it would put your husband in very big trouble?
A. Yes, but I was drunk
Q You were drunk. When did it come to your attention for the first time that the note had been found and that the people who had Jerry in custody were more than a little upset?
A. The following morning
Another thirty minutes of questioning brought up the question of whether or not the note had been dropped or planted. She lied so much it was difficult to believe anything she said. Knowing Jerry as I do, it’s difficult for me to think he would trust her with something like this. He had an inherent distrust of all women.
