Detective Wayne Hays, True Detective, HBO, HBO Entertainment, Home Box Office Inc., Anonymous Content, Parliament of Owls, Passenger, Neon Black, Lee Caplin / Picture Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television Distribution, Mahershala Ali“Yeah, ‘course I remember.  Ten years is nothing’.  I remember everything.  That’s tome education in semantics you’re givin’ me.  Hey, let’s skip the deposition and I can just take notes on your lecture.  I brought my case file.  Alan.  Still there.  No major cases, but… get more time with the wife and kids.  That’s good, I guess.  Lookin’ to overturn the conviction, right?  You good with that?  Why contest it now?  Ten years after the fact?  It’s the family doin’ it, I know.  But why?  What?” — Detective Wayne Hays

“You’re having memory problems.  Don’t whine about it.  Today’s May 20th, 2015.  Henry’s comin’ with the people from the TV.  You don’t like the questions, or you don’t wanna do it, Henry’ll tell ’em to go screw.  But remember why you’re talkin’ to ’em.  Figure out how much they know.  You don’t need no surprises this late in the game.  I’m recordin’ this on the 19th.  Today’s the 20th.  Look at your pictures.  Take notes.  Remember.  Remember the nightstand if you… if you need it.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Hi.  Mm-hmm.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“You’re paid to think that, right?  My wife’s publishing a book about it.  Maybe she could help you.  Sure.  November 7th, 1980.  Friday.  I remember it was the day Steve McQueen died.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Kids left their house approximately 4:00 p.m.  This from multiple statements.  I was with my partner at the time.  Roland West.  We were doin’ our regular shift.  Following up on a series of thefts, I believe.  Workin’ cases.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Fate spared its shitty rate life, and it has no clue.  We should do somethin’.  Give me a break.  I can’t pay for it, man.  Guess I’m a romantic.  No, sir.  I’m not a big enough asshole to put a woman and children through that.  Don’t.  I’ll give you a dollar for lettin’ it go.  Let’s go ride around.  Listen to some music.  Boy that’d be nice.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Tracked it for two days.  Had to make my own muzzle-loader for the season.  Well, you eat the boar.  I only had one shot at him.  If I missed, that was my ass.  Guess I like a more level playin’ field.  You know how many times rats almost ended civilization?  I don’t know.  At least two.  I hate rats.  Only with a bow.  Never in a stand and never with bait.  D-12 here.  Over.  Copy.  We got it.  Be there in ten.  Fifteen.  Go towards Devil’s Den.  You know how to get to West Finger.  Turn on the light if you want.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Uh, yes.  This is fine.  Uh, yes.  Big full moon that night, and… I remember the moon.  And Steve McQueen had died.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“All right, Mr. Purcell, slow down, please.  Take us through what happened, you could, so we can know the right thing to do next.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“‘Course it did.  General rule is, everybody’s lyin’.  Period.  First impression, though, no.  I did not believe he was fabricatin’, not about this.  Yeah.  I mean, I didn’t… check around if he was honest about his overtime or his height.  What is this, really?  Y’all know something I don’t?” — Detective Wayne Hays

“I was deposed when the man’s family tried gettin’ the conviction overturned in ’90.  Then worked the case again when it was reopened.  That’s when my wife published the book.  Wish you could’ve talked to her.  I used to think back then… it was before ‘Nam and after ‘Nam.  But more it’s… before the Purcell case and after.  And it keeps comin’ back.  Here we are.  What is it, 2015?  Come back again.  She did a good job.  She was a good– she was a good writer.  Um, good teacher, good investigator, really.  She was good at lots of things.  Yeah.  A few years back.  We made plans.  I retired and… just got me thinkin’.  Phew.  Those kids.  My kids.  My wife.  I’m sorry.  Guess I’m just missin’ her today.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Your wife, Mr. Purcell.  She expected back tonight?  Get the APB out right away.  I need as many troopers as Highway can spare.  K-9 trackers.  If State’s isn’t available, check with the sheriffs.  We’re gonna search the fields, the woods, put patrols on every street.  Hi-beams out.  I wanna light all this up.  You two.  Start canvassing neighbors.  Ask if they saw the kids, anything unusual.  OK, sure.  Mind if we look around the house?  Just sayin’, sir.  It’s been known to do some good.  We have to consider all possibilities.  I know you want to do that, sir, but I promise, we’re getting that handled.  We need you nearby, answering questions or if somebody calls.  Yes, sir.  Think you’re right.  I hope you’re right.  Expect she’ll call by the mornin’ if that’s the case.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“In fact, our first thought was the wife had taken off with the kids and hadn’t told the guy.  The marriage wasn’t in a good place.  About two minutes later.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Mrs. Purcell.  I’m Wayne Hays.  This is Roland West.  State Police detectives.  We put an APB on your kids, we got men comin’ to search now.  Can you think of anywhere they might have gone.  Friends or relations?  Of course you are.  But you two gettin’ mad isn’t helping anything right now.  Need to work together, with us.  OK?  For the kids.  It’s not unusual.  No, sir.  If we could ask their mother… maybe she could tell us they have any clothes missin’ or not.  Might point us if they run off.  Any idea where he lives?  About six months.  Dan?  And what’s his last name?  Where’s he live?  He stayed there on the couch?  Would you write down his contact info? Phone number and address?  Just have to check out anything we can.  Sometimes, there’s tension between the parents, or… fightin’ and whatnot, kids’ll make like to run away.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Everybody went home to wait for daylight.  I didn’t go to sleep that first night.  I stayed out, trying to find a trail.  I was a tracker, you see.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“I should stop.  Do I need to stop?  Uh… maybe had 50 guys out that first night.  Then went home for a few hours.  Day would give us better odds.  Get the news to help.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“What are you studying?  The quote.  Huh.  What?  What time was that?  And that was you… Ryan Peters and this Lampanella boy?  See on the news this mornin’… about those missing kids?  You saw ’em.  You saw ’em riding their bikes in the neighborhood?  Just the once?  You didn’t see ’em again?  And they weren’t out at the tower?” — Detective Wayne Hays

“It’s a satanic mass.  You see either of these children yesterday?  What?  Were they up at the tower when y’all hangin’ out?  But you don’t know.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Anything you can tell me about Will?  His friends?  Family?  Any sense you might’ve had?  Hmm.  How long you been teachin’?  All at West Finger?  Hey, you say ‘sir,’ I start lookin’ for my boss.  How is it here?  You know.  What you hear now and then?  What about these boys, um, Freddy Burns, Ryan Peters, and Jason Lamponella?  And Will’s good in English?  And, um… you from this area?  So do I  Nice place.  All right, um… thanks very much, Miss Reardon.  Yeah, OK.  I’m Wayne.  OK.  I’ve got hope.  I’ll let you know if there’s anything else.  Do you have a number?  I’ll be in touch.  I don’t know.  The one, Burns, lied about the beer.  There’s lots of reasons to do that.  Put a couple guys tailin’ Burns and Peters.  Hit this address up for the trash can guy, Woodard.  Come back on the teenagers, we need to.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“After the school, we, uh… checked out that guy people called ‘trash man.’  Brett Woodard.  Used to ride around in his go-cart collectin’ garbage.  He wasn’t home.  Checked around his place, the door was open.  Anyways, you know what happened with him.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Mm-hmm.  Couple.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“I’m ready to go now.  I don’t want to be here.  I need to stop for today.  Not today.  I’m sorry.  I think.  I don’t know.  Can you get ’em out of here?” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Roland?  I found the boy.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“There’s another one of them dolls, further back.  Right where the trail got sketchy.  Bag ’em all.  Leadin’ me.  Like a marker or somethin’.  Kid’s head looked injured.  Did a little tunnel work over there, you know?  Almost couldn’t go inside.  There’s no sign of the girl.  We have to get back out there lookin’ for her.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“You know what I found.  I don’t need to go back over it.  I think I’m done for the day, unless y’all wanna tell me what’s goin’ on.  No shit.  But tell me why.  OK, I’ll give y’all another 20 minutes some other time, and that’s how we’ll do this.  Maybe we’ll finish up by next summer.  What about her?  OK.  Julie.  She’s alive?  Jesus Christ.  She’s out there.” — Detective Wayne Hays

“Back out.  We have to find her.  I don’t care.” — Detective Wayne Hays


Detective Roland West, True Detective, HBO, HBO Entertainment, Home Box Office Inc., Anonymous Content, Parliament of Owls, Passenger, Neon Black, Lee Caplin / Picture Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television Distribution, Stephen DorffDetective Roland West

“You’ll get him next time.  Another way of sayin’ you’re slow on the draw.  We could go to Miss Minnie’s.  It’s more honest than most relationships.  You never bought no Saigon trim while you was over there?  I’m a feminist.  They want to sell me a piece of ass, they got the right.  Shit.  You’re gonna pay for it one way or another.  You see yourself gettin’ married, Purple?  Hey.  Shh… dick!  Foxes are predatory vermin, son.  Farmers, I was little, they give you a dollar, you kill a fox.  All right.  Maybe we can find somebody to beat the shit out of.” — Detective Roland West

“I don’t wanna eat no boar meat, man.  Why’d you kill a boar, but not a fox?  Hmm.  Except with rats.  How many?  What about deer?  You hunt deer?  Shoepick Lane?  We almost had a clean night, man.” — Detective Roland West

“Any chance the kids could be with her.  Have you talked to her?  Takes 72 hours, sir.  We don’t know yet if– we have to wait on that.  Any other relatives the kids might be with?  Yes, sir, but sometimes might be some kind of clue where they went, if they had other plans.  Yeah.  Mr. Purcell– can you take us through the house?  Please?  That one you and your wife’s?  Think his wife left him, took the kids?  I mean, they ain’t together.” — Detective Roland West

“Hey!  You been drinkin’ tonight, Mrs. Purcell?  Hey!  Why don’t we get some coffee goin’, all right?  Everybody just calm down.” — Detective Roland West

“Kids headed west down the street goin’ to a playground near the school.  I want three two-man teams goin’ through these fields between the main roads.  Everybody else get spotlights up and down each one of these streets– here, here, and here.  Y’all start canvassing… we’re waitin’ on dogs, but let’s get goin’.” — Detective Roland West

“You sure?  No judgement.  I read it myself.  Yes, sir.  But it needs doin’.  Save us time.  We’re sorry for the personal nature of these questions, but… we need to know everything we can.  How long you folks been sleepin’ separate?  We did.  Hadn’t seen Will since school.  Parents said he’d been home since 3:00.” — Detective Roland West

“Do you got a boy in your class right now, a senior, named Freddy Burns?  We’d like to speak with him.  ‘What?'” — Detective Roland West

“Anybody drinkin’?  These two.  You recognize ’em?  What time was that?  What time y’all leave the park?” — Detective Roland West

“Let me ask you.  What’s up with this?  Black Sabbath, huh?  What’s a Black Sabbath?  Is that true?  It’s satanic?  You saw ’em in the park?  There were other kids out there?  You know any of their names?  Think you’ll find those children?” — Detective Roland West

“Think they’re lyin’?  I mean, they’re lyin’, but… think it’s regular teenage lyin’, or somethin’ else?  Mm-hmm.  What about that teacher?  You gonna come back on her?  Uh-huh.” — Detective Roland West

“Think the backyard was neater.  A lot of guys, have trouble, they come back.  I heard one of my old rodeo buddies is on the street in Shreveport.  There’s another buddy went to prison in Oklahoma.  Killed a dude in a bar fight.  You know guys like that?  Put an APB on this guy.” — Detective Roland West

“Wanna thank the volunteers came out with us today.  It’s a tough thing.  Get those fuckin’ dogs away from me.  He’s got his own thing.  Man was a LRRP in ‘Nam.  You know what that is?  Long range reconnaissance.  Drop ’em in the jungle alone, come out two or three weeks later with scalps.  He’s like a pathfinder.  Tracks wild boar for fun.  He wanna look alone, I’m OK with it.” — Detective Roland West

“Copy.” — Detective Roland West

“OK.  All right.  OK, man.  All right.  We will.” — Detective Roland West

“Where ya goin’?  It’s too dark, man.” — Detective Roland West

“‘Tell me a story.  In this century, and moment, of mania.  Tell me a story.  Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.  The name of the story will be Time, but you must not pronounce its name.  Tell me a story of deep delight.’  What do you think Warren means by that?  Why mustn’t you say the name of the story?  Anybody?  Riley?” — Amelia Reardon

“I teach English, eighth through twelfth grade.  Will’s a student of mine, too.  Yes.  He’s here today.  OK.  Uh, it’s a poem we’re discussing.” — Amelia Reardon

“He’s a good student.  Quiet, polite in homeroom.  He’s very advanced in English.  As far as home, I don’t really know.  I don’t know either of his parents.  But he’s a nice boy.  Has a sensitivity.  You always worry a bit about the sensitive ones.  There’s a few of the older boys here, you know, they make it hard on the others.  But I never saw Will getting any trouble.  I just… well I don’t think he got noticed much.  About six years.  No, I’m sorry.  Just, you know.  Police.  It’s fine.  It’s good, really, for what it is.  I hear something now and then.  They’re all poor around here.  That’s the main thing.  You know… a word in the hallway or something.  They’re careful around me.  I don’t know.  They’re kinda their own little group.  They posture a lot, but I’d say they’re mostly outcasts.  Tough attitudes, can’t talk to girls– that kind of thing.  Reads at a twelfth grade level, writes very well, pays attention in class.  He’s a bit shy about speaking up.  Fayetteville.  Still live there.  Yep.  Well, now you have me looking for my mother.  Amelia.  Please do.  Anything at all.  Good.” — Amelia Reardon

“We were just hanging out, ya know?  Go down to the ranger tower, mess around.  Uh, maybe 4:30, 4:35 we got there, I think.  No, sir.  Yeah, I seen ’em around.  I think we saw ’em.  Ridin’ their bikes.  Yesterday.  We passed ’em when we were drivin’.  Maybe 4:15?  Before we got to the park.  Yes, sir.  No, sir.  No.  No, sir.” — Freddy Burns

“No, uh, we’re OK.  Sorry about that.  Please continue, Mr. Hays.” — Elise Montgomery

“Oh.  Um, well, we didn’t really get into the questions.  I understand if it’s difficult to discuss Mr. Woodard–” — Elise Montgomery

“There’s a web forum that posts about real-life criminal cases, things that are unsolved or unresolved.  They have a whole section on the Purcell case.  They go in lots of directions.  Did you know at various times since, large-scale pedophile rings connected to people of influence were uncovered in the surrounding areas?  Do you know about the Franklin scandal?  It’s been theorized that the straw dolls are a sign of pedophile groups, like the crooked spiral.  Can I ask, with what happened in 1990 and you leaving the force, did you ever feel your leads and theories were discounted because of your race?  I’m interested in the intersectionality of marginalized groups within authoritarian and systemic racist structures.  Well, anyways, those– those dolls from the scene, they were a significant lead.” — Elise Montgomery
