Events of Criminal Case
Ethel is a pest control expert.
Ethel found herself in trouble when Yann Toussaint found residue of boric acid on Scott Lee Allan's prison shackles, confirming her as the only person in Jazz Town to have access to the acid. Ethel didn't like the idea of a convict coming to her doorstep but helped him anyway, but Frank Knight told Ethel helping an escaped convict is a punishable felony by law. Frank continued by telling Ethel the escaped convict was murdered earlier on and it was all due to pest control, to which Ethel replied and admitted to be a pest control expert, in which the conversation made no sense to Frank and the player at all.
The second time Frank and the player talked to Ethel, she had to defend herself with a shotgun with thoughts of the team being vandals. Much of Ethel's self-defense came from her husband's military training, but Frank wanted to know how she utilized her shop's sign to intimidate untrusted people. Ethel regretted her decision to free Scott after she realized her decision to unlock the convict's shackles were grounds for him to loot the pest control store which influenced her to use her sign to keep looters at bay.
Ethel had nothing to do with the murder when Andre Roche was indicted and impounded for grand homicide.
