  • TOD: 1:16am (May 3, 2058)[22]
  • Her body was discovered on the sidewalk of Hundred and Forty-Fourth Street, between Ninth and Tenth, across the street from a sex club; her throat had been viciously slashed (severed jugular).[23]
  • She had been dead only ten minutes before her body was seen and reported it. The first cruiser arrived three minutes later.[24] Her umbrella was missing.[25]
  • The murder weapon was a thin, smooth-edged blade, nine inches (22.86 cm) in length, tapered from point to hilt - the point was honed to a V. She was frontally attacked with one swipe of the weapon across the throat from right to left, and at a slight angle (severing the jugular).[26]
  • Murdered by C. J. Morse.[27]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • Eve used her master card to check Cicely's appointments from the day before. She found that Cicely had been seeing George Hammett and had a dinner date with him on May 2, 2058 at Robert's; he was her last appointment of the day. They left the restaurant in a Rapid Cab.[28]
    • Hammett said they spoke of marriage.[29]
  • Cicely's last call came in at 11:30pm but she erased the transmission and the recording.[30]
  • Roarke said he knew Cicely as a light social acquaintance, some business dealings, though mostly through her former husband.[31] Cicely Towers, Marco Angelini, and George Hammett, were on the board of one of Roarke's divisions (Mercury).[32]
    • Cicely's share of Mercury would be worth somewhere between five and seven million dollars. She and Marco held equal shares.[33]
  • Nadine Furst had a one-on-one with her two months ago after the DeBlass case.[34]
  • She was pleased about her daughter's upcoming wedding.[35]
    • Cicely called Randall Slade just after midnight the night she was murdered; she called from a public phone. She asked him if it was true, as she had learned about Sector 38; they argued and she said she was going to deal with it for her daughter's sake, then deal with him before she ended the transmission.[36]
  • Cicely entered the Five Moons at 12:16am and left at 1:12am. She met no one, drank nothing, and left; when she left, she had her umbrella with her.[37]
  • Cicely was (possibly) memorialized on May 6th; she was important enough, and Catholic enough, to warrant having her memorial service at St. Patrick's Cathedral.[38]
    • Roarke took Suzanna Kimball, a mutual friend of his and Cicely's, to Cicely's memorial service.[39]
  • File number: 47801-T[40]
