Personal InformationEdit

DescriptionEdit

  • According to Peabody, "he's healthy, he doesn't have a face that scares small children ..."[3]
  • A nice, easygoing sort with deep velvet brown eyes.[4] A smiling, easygoing face.[5]

PersonalityEdit

  • A very private man[6] who, according to Ben, believed in honesty, in good sportsmanship, in playing to win, but playing it straight.[7] Edmond Luce agreed, saying he was never unfair and played by the rules; he believed in rules.[8]
  • According to Roarke, he lived fairly quietly and was sports mad; he enjoyed golf, particularly, and was good at and enjoyed his work.[9]
  • According to Ava, Anders wanted to experiment more in bed but she wasn't comfortable and, as such, they agreed to have their needs met by professionals outside the home. She claimed she suspected her husband might have been bringing women into their home.[10]
  • He was a creature of habit and routine – predictable.[11]

HistoryEdit

  • His grandmother was from Germany and, as a boy he had a German nanny.[12]
  • He was 'second generation' of his company, having taken it over when his father, Reginald, died.[13]
  • Ben said Thomas Anders was like a father to him. Anders applied for custody of Ben after Ben's mother died and, when the biological father didn't protest, custody was granted to Anders (he, apparently, paid off the father for five million).[14]

Homicide InformationEdit

  • TOD: 3:32 am
  • COD: Asphyxiation set up to appear as erotic asphyxiation.[15] He was tranqed twice; once from a pressure syringe with a heavy dose of barbiturates and traces of a standard over-the-counter sleep aid (there was a massive dose of an erectile enhancer in there, too).[16] A solid gold, electronic vitamin dispenser was taken in as evidence.[17]
  • Black velvet ropes tied Anders's wrists to two of the bed's sleek, shiny brass rungs, while two more ropes bound his ankles by a length to the foot board. The four matching ropes were joined by the fifth that wrapped around Anders's throat, pulling his head off the pillows.[18]
  • Several sex toys sat on the table beside the bed, including an anal probe, vibrator, colorful cock rings, gliding and warming lotions, and lubricants. Anders had Kiwi lotion applied to his chest and three neon cock rings rode on an impressive erection. In his nightstand drawer was an economy pack of Stay-Up.[19]
  • There was no sign of forced entry, no sign of burglary, no sign of struggle though his bedroom door, habitually left closed, was open (in nine years, that door had never been left open when the Anderses had been in residence).[20]
  • House security had been disengaged at 2:28 AM and reengaged at 3:26 AM (see Thomas's YANNI); all security discs for the twenty-four-hour period before the security was reset were missing.[21]
  • Case Number: HA-32003.[22]
  • Murdered by Suzanne Custer; Ava was a conspirator in his murder, as well.

Interesting FactsEdit

  • His body was discovered by Greta Horowitz, their house manager, when she arrived for work.[23]
  • He had a ten o'clock tee time with Edmond Luce that Tuesday morning.[24]
  • Anders dislike the sensation of being watched, even when no one else is in the house, so he disengaged the in-house security cameras every night before going to bed.[25]
  • Only Thomas Anders, Ava Anders, and Greta Horowitz had the security codes to the house; the codes are changed every ten days.[26]
  • The Anderses had lived in their Park Avenue home for fifteen years.[27]
  • Anders was worth about half a billion including controlling interest in Anders Worldwide.[28] Anders sponsors sports camps for underprivileged children while Ava beats the drum for funding.[29]
  • He always wore a fresh pair of pajamas to bed; one pair was missing.[30]
  • Ava stated that Anders took sleep aid occasionally; now and then.[31] Ben said he didn't think he took them.[32]
  • Sunflowers were his favorite flower.[33]

YANNIEdit

  • Security System
    • After Thomas Anders was murdered his house security was checked. Peabody stated that house security was disengaged at two twenty-eight (2:28 am), reengaged at three twenty-six (3:26 am).[34] She later states that EDD verified her findings. Security shut down at two twenty-eight (2:28 am), rebooted at three thirty-six (3:36 am).[35]
  • Possible YANNI or oddity
    • Anders had the marks from a pressure syringe under his right ear. Morris stated that it was an "odd place for self-medicating – especially by a right-hander – which he was."[36]
