You give Caius a suggestion.

"I'm workin' for tha family of th'deceased. Her parents hired me out before they passed to watch their little girl--an' since somethin' happened to her, I got friends of tha family bustin' my balls about it. So yeah, I get a little tense about tha house. What am I gonna tell people? Sure, I let some chick break into the house, but she was a federal agent so it's okay. They ain't gonna take that.

You didn't answer my question, neither. What's a federal agent doin' here? You tellin' me tha kid's alive, and nobody contacted me? What's tha story?"

The woman stares him down. You can't tell if she's suspicious, or just frustrated. "Certain elements of the case are... classified."

"Classified," repeats Caius, "You're really pullin' that? Classified. Geez Louise."

assaulting a federal agent is not a good idea, that would create more problems than it's worth.

We could bring up the live stream of the hospital incident at the start, though that might cause more problems.
tor 1st Sep 2017, 4:48 PM edit delete reply
we should also keep the others up to date on the conversation it might help give us some options.

nermind about the live stream, that would throw more suspicion on Caius

oh wait, we can drop the classified subject and say that all he cares about is proving that the girl is alive and ask if she as any evidence proving it.

ask if said person got caught up in a conspiracy or something

Have him ask the agent if it has anything to do with the Tobu Robotics incident, he heard that it happened at the hospital she was morgued up in but can't get anymore details.

I think that that its also "Classified"

I mean would be, you never know!

While Jane works there so that should bring a connection on why he knows and if it was in the damage report of the incident it should be fairly obvious.
tor 1st Sep 2017, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
just to clarify I meant the hospital that Jane works at should have been in the carnage. Just to be clear.

we could push for details that aren't classified. tell them this is our livelihood on the line, and besides that she was a good kid and if she's alive he deserves to not be jerked around by the feds.

I am super in support of what you're saying, Mochi. We need to pressure this person. Something like "You know what, if you wanna play the 'classified' card, you do that. But if I don't give these folks somethin' ta work with, they'll get involved. That's bad for me, and that's bad for your investigation. Evidence goes missing, the property gets tampered with, suddenly you're in hot water with no leads. We're on the same side here: just help me out."

We could strike a bit more of a conciliatory tone if that seems like it would work-- basically say we can help with her investigation as a fellow law enforcement officer, but we need to know what info SHE needs to know, and we have to be in the loop to a certain extent. We can cooperate, but she's gotta cooperate with US, too, if she wants that. We might know what she wants to know, and she might know what we want to know, but we've gotta work together on it.

also a good idea. getting more confrontational isn't the best option, this might work better.

Sneak a syringe in under the table with the rat while Caius is taking with her. Ideally It won't have to be used, but best to be prepared.
