All of them, and Pamela Flynn promised reward, not too true, great: stereo, a little money, some things from home. The only condition Pam was asked to take her beloved dog. She feared that the death of the owner may disturb the animal.
Towel on the carpet
The first attempt to kill Greg foiled. Four of the conspirators, having gone "to the case of Pamela's car, got lost and did not immediately found a home smarts. They were going to hide in the house, waiting for Greg to return from work done with him. But when they finally arrived, he was at home.
The second time, failure was. Flynn and Rendepp came near the house and dressed in jackets with hoods, purchased in advance. When they approached the home of Greg Smart, from the corner in front of them appeared kind of couple. The boys clung to the wall, pulling on the hood. They entered the house through the metal door of a basement and ransacked in the master bedroom, bathroom and living room, trying to portray the consequences of robbery, burglary ... Two other accomplices, Lettim and Fowler, waited in the car.
Murder itself took several seconds. They attacked Greg in the hall. Pulling a man on the floor, Randall began to swing in front of him with a knife. Later the boy told police that he had not the heart to kill Smart. Flynn then took out a revolver and shot at Greg. He fell down on a towel spread on the carpet.

He told his father Vance Lettima that his revolver was used to murder and, besides, his son was involved in this case. Lettim checked the revolver and immediately discovered that he was fired from. He went to the police and told. Soon all four were to the investigator.
Cecilia helps Justice
The vicious world of Pamela collapsing, and she still could not believe his collapse. The boys testified: Flynn confessed to the murder, the others argued that all this is perceived as a game for them and had no idea that they were participating in the planned murder. But they argued that Pam Flynn forced to kill her husband. But all this was not enough for the arrest of Pamela Smart. Indications guys had to confirm the fact of her complicity in a crime.
"We needed proof, then the captain explained Jackson. - You had to Pamela Smart herself admitted her guilt. Fortunately, Celia Pearce after two interviews after everyone else realized that what happened is abhorrent and despicable, and agreed to help us get Pamela to tell the truth ".
The girl was wearing a secret microphone, so that during interviews with Pamela convict her of murdering her husband. She was instructed to refer to any conversations.
Pamela Smart, in theory, should have been concerned that her young co-conspirators were in custody and testified during questioning. But outwardly she was calm. In the first conversation with Cecilia, she was careful. Moreover, she assured Cecilia, that she and Billy, nothing was. But the conversation lasted. Police kept advised Cecilia. She was told to tell Pam that the lawyer wants to talk to her about a love note, which she once wrote to Billy.
That record a conversation Pam and Cecilia:
"Pam: Whatever they say, whatever they forced you to say, I do not have this any idea.
Cecilia: Well, I know only that I should come and talk with you. Ya.. I do not know what to do. I should talk to a lawyer. You know, I hate lies.
Pam: I mean, if you tell the truth, find yourself an accomplice to murder.
Pam: So you made your choice. What think your family? They will say: "Cecilia, you're aware of it!" Do you understand? "
In another interview she tried to keep Cecilia on its side: "I think I was a good friend to you. And it is worth something, even if you send me away ... But even if you do it, do you think this will solve your problem? Do not hope, the problem does not run out. The whole family will clamor: "You knew about the killer, how could you live with that?" And all the newspapers will write about you. And on the radio will be repeated a million times, you know? "
"A victim of unbridled fantasy"
In the end, Pamela Smart gradually began to impersonate a conversation with the girl, whose fate is closely linked with its own. During one of his last interviews, which were recorded and listened, Pamela blurted out: "Billy could say that I promised to pay the guys. I do not know what Billy told them to go with him. But these are only words. I mean, they have no evidence. Where's the money? They are not. They can not tie me babbling frightened sixteen milksop. Me, with my professional reputation and the course that I teach. You know what that means? They must believe me ".
Pamela Smart was surprised when Detective Dan Peleter soon came to her office and stated bluntly: "I have for you have two news: good and bad. The good news - we have found the murderer of your husband. The bad - you were arrested for complicity in murder ".
When she was taken into custody, the guys have confirmed that knew about the murder. Admitted that they did this because Billy and Pamela was love. But Pamela insisted that the innocent, that she - the victim of unbridled imagination of adolescents. She said that never tempting Billy Flynn, has never slept with him, not incited his friends to murder. But in the early days of the trial in March 1991, it became clear that her story hard to believe. She could handle any number of impressionable teenagers, but the jurors knew the business. They make decisions based not on emotion but on facts.
Billy Flynn testified under oath that shocked all those present in the hall. He described how loaded revolver cartridges like stopped for a moment after it took aim at the head of Greg. "It's like a hundred years have flown - he wept. - And I said:
"Lord, forgive me".
It took longer than the life of Greg
Recordings made with the help of Cecilia, they listened in court. Pamela's voice on the tape did not resemble the voice of mournful widow. The court heard the boastful claim that her position and prestige that it enjoys in the society, give it an advantage over the accused. Attorneys Pamela tried to present the charges against their client as not having a groundless. They argued that Flynn and his company - the mentally abnormal guys who killed Greg Smart on trumped-up reasons.
Jurors, after a long dispute finally came to a conclusion: the murder of teenagers pushed Pamela Smart. She was found guilty.
Judge Douglas P. Gray made a final decision. Pamela Smart was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole; Billy Flynn and Patrick Revdepp received 28 years in prison, Vance Lupim - 18 years. Depot Raymond Fowler in this process was not considered.
Pamela Smart could not believe such an end, even when they heard the verdict. She turned to his lawyer and said: "At first, Billy took the lives of Greg, now it takes me". But Captain Jackson, who for a quarter century of service in the police force has seen many criminals, it made no impression. He said: "Pam Smart not only take the lives of Greg, but crippled the fate of naive, impressionable young guys, when pushed them to commit a crime. This cold, calculating, completely indifferent to everyone but himself, a woman. I think prison for that person - the best place. "
