                            Troy Phelan's Testament

  Snead reached the balcony just in time to scream in horror, then he watched helplessly as Mr. Phelan fell silently, growing smaller and smaller until he struck the ground. Snead stared in disbelief, then he began to cry.

  Josh Stafford was a step behind him and witnessed most of the fall. It took him a minute or two to recover from the shock and start thinking like a lawyer again. He watched the family down below collect around Phelan's body, then he went back into the room.

  The camera was still on. Snead faced it, raised his right hand and swore to tell the truth, then explained what he'd just witnessed.Staffordopened the envelope and held the yellow sheets of paper close enough for the camera to see.

  "Yes, I saw him sign that," Snead said. "Just seconds ago."

  "Did he say this was his last will and testament?"

  "He called it his testament."

  Stafford madeDurbanrepeat the same statement, then placed himself in front of the camera and gave his version of events. When he finished, he told Snead to leave the room.

 托伊·费兰的遗嘱

  史尼德惊恐的尖叫着跑到阳台上,无助的看着费兰先生无声地跌落下去,他的身影变得越来越小,最后撞上了地面。史尼德难以置信地望着,然后哭了起来。

  祝什·斯坦福迟一步跟在他身后,目击了几乎整个跳楼过程,他用了一两秒钟从惊愕中镇定下来,然后重新以律师的思维开始思考。他看了看楼下聚集到费兰的尸体旁的家属们,然后走回了房间。

  摄像机还在运作,史尼德面对摄像机,举起右手发誓会陈述事实,然后说明了他刚才目击的一切。斯坦福打开信封,取出里面的黄色纸张举到摄像机前,使它足以被看清楚。

  “是的,我看到他签署了那个。”史尼德说,“就在几秒钟之前。”

  “他说这是他最后的遗嘱了吗?”

  “他说那才是他的遗嘱。”

  斯坦福让德班重复了同样的陈述,然后他自己也站到摄像机前做了自己的陈述。结束后,他让史尼德离开房间。
