Events of Criminal Case

Wilbur became a suspect after Jones and the player learned that he was acquainted with the victim. He explained that the victim was a loyal customer at his post office and had lobbied to the local council to have Wilbur's long years of service recognized. After some minor questioning, Wilbur excused himself to get back to work.

Wilbur was spoken to again about his mail scam. After initially denying involvement, he confessed when told that the victim knew about the scam. He revealed that he had run an honest operation for decades, but since it had gotten him nowhere, he decided to rig the package scale to gain a bit more money. Jones and the player then took Wilbur into custody for theft.

Despite being arrested for theft, Wilbur was found to be innocent after the team incarcerated Lorenzo Sims for Roy's murder.
