    detectives questions OT

    I came home after my last day at out-pt therapy to find two detectives in my driveway. First they helped me with my groceries....that was nice. Then we went inside and they asked me a ton of questions about the robbery. They want me and my husband to take a lie detector test. Apparently what happened was out of the ordinary. I am a mess, and can't stop crying. I'm too upset to even type any more.
