Events of Criminal Case

Abigail became a suspect because of her presence at the crime scene. There, she showed clear disdain at the staging of Philomena on a Bernini statue. She regarded the victim negatively and was mostly concerned about the respectability of the museum after the murder, saying that it would attract many tourists. Maddie said that this would be a good thing, to which Abigail disagreed.

Abigail was spoken to again regarding the woman's suffrage booklet that had the victim's name crossed out and a stamp bearing Abigail's name. Abigail said that Philomena was unfit to be a part of the cause due to her excessive drinking and her behavior.

Abigail was found innocent after Ignatius Cottingley was incarcerated for Philomena's murder.
