Lombard, Trudy

Appears in Memory in Death

Personal InformationEdit

  • General Description: A vicious, sadistic woman. Just another predator.[1]
  • Age: 58
  • Hair: Reddish blond
  • Eyes: Grass green
  • Relationships: Bobby Lombard (son); Zana Lombard (daughter in law)
  • Occupation: Foster parent/Grifter [2]

DescriptionEdit

  • Her hair was worn in a cap that had apparently exploded into curls and her skin was very white except for the pink on her cheeks, the pink on her lips. She was big-boned (soft and plump) with a Texas twang in her voice and smelled of roses.[3]
  • She had enjoyed being tended to and was lazy.[4]

HistoryEdit

  • Eve’s first foster mother (in Summervale, Texas – just north of Lufkin); it’s been more than twenty years since they’ve seen each other.[5]
  • Trudy made ‘her girls’ wash in cold water morning and night (because they were filthy); she locked them in the dark; every day there were punishments like scrubbing the kitchen with a toothbrush.[6]
  • She had eleven other children under her care over the years.[7]
  • She had several body sculpting procedures over the last, roughly, dozen years. Face and body, tucks and nips. Nothing major but considerable work, and good work at that.[8]
  • Trudy had once smashed up her own car, spray painted it and blamed the boy across the street.[9]
  • Trudy fostered Zana Lombard, though Trudy did not know this as Zana was previously known as Marnie Ralston and staged her own death in Club Zed.[10]
  • Other foster children: Carly Tween and Maxie Grant (incomplete list)

Homicide InformationEdit

  • TOD: 01:28 (1:28 AM) [11]
  • COD: Multiple blows to the back of Trudy’s head with a blunt instrument.[12]
  • Morris notes that Trudy’s other injuries were older by twenty-four hours or more (incurred about thirty hours before fatal blows).[13]
  • Morris believes the head injuries were caused by the same weapon as the earlier injuries to her body. Eve and Morris agree that she gave herself the previous beating.[14]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • Trudy saw, and recognized, Dallas on screen when Dallas was being interviewed about the Icove case and the Quiet Birth fiasco.[15]
  • On their trip to New York, the Lombard family stayed in the West Side Hotel (Trudy stayed in room four-fifteen).[16]
  • Trudy visited Roarke and told him she wanted two million dollars or she’d go to a reporter and tell them about Eve and what she was like as a child. Trudy kept files on all her foster girls. Roarke scared her and she ran away.[17]
  • She beat herself with a sock filled with credits, striking her face, her hip, her thigh, then the belly, to make it appear she had been attacked and roughed up.[18]
  • After Trudy left Roarke’s office, she stopped by Blossom Boutique and National Bank to get the makings for her sap.[19]
