-Did you have an intimate friendship with William Weizstein?
We were close, we knew eachother since we were little. He was still a child to me sometimes.
-Do you recall his nature as being violent or aggressive?
No, not at all. Billy wouldn’t hurt anyone. He just wanted to make the world a better place.
-We understand you received a letter from Mr. Weizstein before the explosion?
Yes I did.
-Did he detail his plans?
It was an accident. There were no plans, nothing was on purpose.
-You knew he was working on some theory, correct?
-And did you not think to contact the authorities?
No, of course not, why would I?
-Ms. Dreyfus, do you realize what you could have prevented?
The accident? No, no, that wasn’t a crime. Billy would never hurt someone. He was just trying to make a discovery.
-A discovery that cost us thousands of lives.
No, no, just…it was all science, equations, things I don’t understand. Just please, understand he’s no terrorist.
-Did you love William Weizstein?
What? No, I mean, only as a friend. I didn’t ever…no, not like that.
-But he confided in you.
To a certain extent. I wasn’t his partner in crime, I didn’t know what would happen. I didn’t know!
-Do you miss him?
Yes, yes I do…
