Dateline - Seattle, Washington. An accountant makes a new female friend. Seems normal enough. Fast-forward a few days and the woman texts the accountant to tell him "she had been beaten up by her husband and wanted to stop by." [cue music]
The woman came by the accountant’s place, bringing two female friends he didn’t know with her, around 5 p.m. May 26.
At this point, our nameless accountant may have thought that this situation was going to take a very, very strange (but perhaps very interesting) turn. The kind of plot twist that you only find in the finest of Jenna Jameson films. There's a sexy damsel in an unfortunate situation who calls on a new man friend for help. For unknown reasons, she brough her two friends to accompany her. I think you know where I'm going with this. Coulda really been something! But unfortunately for hero, it did not go this way AT ALL.
The three women left after the accountant gave them bus passes.
Dammit! And then:
At 10 p.m. that night, the accountant was in his room with the window open when he noticed one of the woman’s friends standing with a man on a bike in the alley outside the window, according to the police report for the incident.
The woman said she wanted to talk to the accountant, so he opened the door and took her to his room. As soon as they got inside, she took a gun out of her purse, pointed it at the accountant and demanded his money, according to the report.
