  • According to Jake's phone, Christian called from 1-709-555-0133, and he was located at 16 Signal Hill Road, St. John's, NL. When Jake arrives there, it is a large, stand-alone, dark-coloured house.

The houses in the area are beiges and yellows.

  • Leslie: Was there somebody that would be renting the house using your company credit card?
    Tommy: Not that I'm aware of. Which card?

    Following this exchange, Leslie rips the page out of her notebook and hands it to Tommy to show him the credit card number. If this is her official police notebook, she should not be doing this, as the notebook pages are numbered and police officers have to account for all pages. This is to stop officers from falsifying evidence, or getting rid of evidence that they don't like.

  • Christian: Tommy Winsor is like the Bernie Madoff of Newfoundland. They take down-payments on properties, they invest in bigger and better properties. The whole thing's about to collapse.

In June, 2009, he was sentenced to 150 years in jail.
