HOLMES’S MAP

Real Crime - - Unsolved Case -

Prior to the orig­i­nal rob­bery, John Holmes was al­leged to have drawn a floor­plan to Nash’s home. Although he would not be par­tic­i­pat­ing in the rob­bery, he was still an as­so­ciate who owed the Won­der­land Gang money. His role, as their in­ter­me­di­ary, would be to ‘ dis­tract’ Nash while the rob­bery was tak­ing place. Given $ 400 and told to show Nash a good time, Holmes used the cash as per­sonal drug money. Pan­icked and know­ing that he had a task to ful­fil, he re­peat­edly vis­ited Nash’s home, his ag­i­ta­tion in­creas­ing each time. Holmes claimed his be­hav­iour went un­no­ticed by

Nash, who was be­com­ing in­creas­ingly para­noid fol­low­ing a ma­jor drink­ing spree and was not ab­sorb­ing any of their con­ver­sa­tion. Many hours and three vis­its later, he emerged from Nash’s home hav­ing un­locked a slid­ing door. It was an ac­tion that would have ma­jor con­se­quences.
