Shelley’s been trying to work out what’s going on with Woody. She thinks his problem’s psychological and stems from his family background – she heard Woody’s dad call him a ‘nutcase’ during the siege negotiations. Shelley went to see Woody’ mother – as she had heard that Woody was quite protective of her – out for some answers to Woody’s behaviour, however Woody’s mum was in another world. As soon as Woody’s dad came home, he ordered Shelley out. Shelley’s tried telling Mr Carter (the police officer involved) about Woody’s circumstances, but he wouldn’t listen.
