Burglary in a Premium Apartment

As the proceedings began we decided to first probe for the prevalent possible reasons that Nicky has fallen prey to a burglar in her premium apartment in the premier downtown district in New York. If she had lived in a more dangerous neighborhood this would have been a prescription for burglary. But Nicky had been living in an apartment building with high prestige where a premium was placed on security, multiple guards hired at a premium rate patrolled the premise, and privacy was presumed. You couldn‘t prick your finger in the hallways without being observed.

A number of possibilities had already been discussed for how the crime happened. No one in the area was on probation. No pretext had be found so far that would give anyone reason to steal from Nicky. And none of the guards were preoccupied by any distraction at the time of the crime. Any of our finding would be premature, however, until we considered the probability that it was an inside job. We would have to presume on the apartment staff for interviews. And I would personally preside over all of these interviews. In all probability we would find nothing, but we would be called pretentious if we did not follow proper procedure.

As we began the interview I took a quick preview of the people we would meet. All looked like they were prey caught in the headlights of an oncoming car. But the words of one woman pricked up my ear as I heard her say that Nicky was always trying to make trouble in their building. I listened closely as I knew that this might be our best suspect. But we still had a lot of work to do to find out for sure.  

【译文】
高级公寓内的盗窃案

诉讼程序开始的时候我们决定首先调查尼基成为劫贼手下牺牲品的普遍并且可能的原因。她是在纽约主要中心地区她的高级公寓内遇害的。如果她住在一个更加危险的地区那么抢劫的事情还有较高的可能性,但是尼基住在一幢很有名气的公寓里面,那里交过安全保险金,还高价聘请了许多保安在房屋和地面巡逻,人们认定那里的私生活不会受到干扰,即使你在过道里戳一下手指也一定会被发现。

对于案发过程已经讨论了好几种可能性。那个地方没有人在服缓刑,到目前为止还没发现任何人有想偷尼基东西的借口,案发的时候没有一个保安被别的事情完全吸引住。但是,我们的任何发现都是不成熟的,直到我们想到内部作案的可能性。我们要利用公寓内的工作人员,对他们进行面谈,而我将亲自主持所有这些面谈。很可能我们会一无所获,但如果不走合适的程序别人会说我们自命不凡。

随着面谈的开始我很快预先审查了一下我们要见的那些人。他们看上去都像是被迎面而来的汽车车前灯照射的受害者,但是有一名妇女的话立刻引起了我的注意,因为我听到她说尼基总是想在他们楼里制造麻烦。我听得很仔细,因为我知道这可能是我们最重要的嫌疑犯,但是要找到确凿的证据我们还有大量的工作要做。
