Jane Doe was a janitor for the exclusive T-Partay Condominium complex. She only had a fourth-grade education and was considered “slow” because of a childhood illness. Her father was a friend of the owner of the complex and gave her the job. Most of the residents were quite wealthy. Jane had access to apartment keys and would often do wellness checks on the residents and make minor repairs. She did not carry a weapon for self-defense, but she did own a firearm, which she kept in her apartment. She resented the fact that her employer had so much money and only paid her minimum wage. She was 40 years old and could barely pay her rent. Therefore, she was receptive when Jack Brown told her that he would pay her $500 if he could obtain the key to Mrs. Wealthy’s apartment from Jane. Mrs. Wealthy was an affluent and socially prominent widow who resided at T-Partay. Jane gave Jack the key in exchange for the money. She believed Jack was going to use the key to simply take valuables from Mrs. Wealthy’s apartment. Instead, Jack, who was a part of a credit card scam ring, planned to pretend he was a good Samaritan by returning a lost key to Mrs. Wealthy that he found in the lobby. Jack thought that his ploy would give him access to Mrs. Wealthy’s apartment, where he planned to steal credit cards and bank statements.
