AI Generated Reality Show – “My Doppelganger Did It!”

Posted under Episode Reality Show, Story On By Chief

You are the host of "My Doppelganger Did It!", a show that interviews with people in prison who swear they are innocent.
 You are about to interview one such person, Michael Deering.
Michael is a man in his late fifties or early sixties. He has long grey hair and wears glasses. He is dressed in an old suit and tie.

Michael Deering was sentenced to 20 years in prison for
 the murder of his wife, Laura Deering. He claims he didn't do it.
He says he woke up from a nap and found his wife dead on their bed. His first thought was that she had committed suicide by jumping off the roof, but when he looked out the window he saw her
 body in the garden below.
When you ask him how this could have happened, he explains that someone must have come into their house while they were sleeping and killed Laura Deering. The only thing missing from the crime scene was a bloody handprint on the wall above the headboard of their bed.

You ask Michael to explain how the handprint disappeared.
 He explains that he came home at around 2 am. When he got there, he noticed something strange about the bedroom. There was a dark stain on the wall where the blood would have been if Laura Deering had jumped off the roof.
 He went over to look at the mark more closely and noticed that the stain was gone.
He then notices that the room smells funny. He goes outside and finds a woman's shoe lying on the ground near the garden.

You ask Michael if he knows who did commit this murder as the crime seems like it was one of passion.
 He tells you that he does not know anything about this case.
You ask him what kind of person would want to kill his wife. He answers that he doesn't know. He just assumes that whoever murdered Laura Deering wanted to get rid of her somehow.

> You suspect Michael is lying and try to get him to confess.

"I don't believe you," you say. "If I find out that you're lying to me, I'll have no choice but to send you back to prison."
Michael laughs. "Well, you can't send me anywhere because I'm already here!"

You check the security tapes which show the night of the murder.  In the video tape, you see Laura
 Deering walking towards the door of their house. She opens the door and enters. A few minutes later, Michael comes home and goes inside. You see Michael walk into the living room. He walks past the kitchen and sees Laura sitting on the couch.
 Then you see Michael walk into the bedroom. You hear him go to sleep.
You leave the room and return to the living room. You ask Michael why he thinks he couldn't be guilty of the murder.
 He says that he didn't kill his wife and that he never even went to bed that night.
You ask him if he remembers seeing anyone else in the house that night. He answers that he doesn't remember seeing anyone else.

You ask Michael, "If you didn't go to bed, what were you doing in the bedroom?"

He says that he was watching TV and falling asleep on the couch.
You ask him, "Did you ever hear your wife scream?"
He says, "No, I never heard her scream."

Michael gives you in great detail everything that happened before he found the body:
 he got up from the couch and walked into the kitchen to make himself some coffee. He took his cup of coffee into the living room and sat down on the couch. He watched television for a while and then fell asleep.

You remind Michael that the couch was on the roof at time of the murder.  You ask him, "Isn't it possible that you killed Laura in your sleep?"

He laughs and says, "Yeah, sure! Why not? I mean, I don't think so, but why not? Why not?"
You ask him, "Do you think you'd have any trouble killing someone?"

He says, "Maybe, maybe not. Who knows? Maybe I would. Maybe I wouldn't."
You ask him, "Why do you think you would have done it?"
He says, "I dunno.
 Just something that would happen. Something that might happen. Some crazy idea. Who knows?"
You ask him, "Are you afraid of going to prison?"
He laughs and says, "Of course I am.

You ask Michael what was the most annoying thing about Laura.
 He answers, "She was always nagging me. Always telling me to take better care of myself. To eat right. To exercise more. She was constantly talking about my health. My weight.
 I mean, really, she was annoying. And she wasn't much of a cook either."
You ask him, "What was the last thing Laura said to you before she died?"
He says, "

She asked me to come home early because we had to finish cleaning the house before the movers came. We had to clean up all the broken glass from the windows and the door."
You ask him, "Was there anything unusual about the way she talked to you?"

He says, "No, nothing special. She was just being her usual self."
You ask him, "
So why was there broken glass everywhere, did you have a fight?"

He says, "No, nothing like that. I don't know what happened. I woke up and there was glass everywhere. I called the police. They told me to call an ambulance."

You ask Michael again, "How did the broken glass get there?"

He laughs and says, "I dunno. That's weird, isn't it? There was no reason for it. I was sleeping peacefully when I woke up and there was glass everywhere. It was a total accident."

You confront Michael and tell him he becomes violent while he sleeps.

"That's crazy," he says. "I didn't hurt anybody. I never hit her or anything. I'm innocent. You can't send me back to prison!"
You threaten Michael and tell him that you will send him to jail unless he tells you the truth.

Michael finally breaks down and confesses.  Michael tells you the truth:
 he was having sex with Laura. He says that they started fooling around in the kitchen one day and then moved to the bedroom. He admits that he felt guilty about cheating on his wife and he wanted to stop, but Laura kept asking him to keep going.
 Finally, he decided to end it. He says that he went to the kitchen to start making dinner and he saw the broken window. He tried to call Laura, but she didn't answer. So he went outside and found the body.

Michael realized that he had just killed his wife with sex.
 He says that he was terrified and he ran away. He says that he has been hiding in the sewers since that night. He begs you to help him escape.
You tell Michael that you believe him and you promise to find him a lawyer.

The show follows up with Michael after his second trial where he was found Not Guilty by
 Reason of Insanity. Michael is released from the hospital and goes home.
Michael starts dating another woman who lives in the apartment building next door. You decide to spy on them together. You put on a fake mustache and wig and dress up as a doctor.

You attempt to seduce Michael.

You say to Michael, "Hey, baby. Let's go out dancing tonight.
He says, "Sure, why not? What are we waiting for?"
You ask him, "What do you want to do?"

He says, "We could go to a movie. Or we could just stay home and watch TV."
You say, "Let's do both. I'll pick us up some Chinese food.

You have a date with Michael that goes well and he doesn't suspect a thing.  Then you finally confront him.

You tell Michael that you've been following him around town.
"You're insane," he says. "Why would you do that? I'm not a criminal."
You ask him, "Did you kill Laura?"

He says, "No, I didn't kill her. I loved her. I couldn't have hurt her."
You tell him, "It's time for you to face the music.

You bring out special musical guest:
 Michael's new girlfriend, Angelina. She is a beautiful Italian opera singer.
Angelina asks Michael what he thinks of her singing.
He says, "She's amazing. Her voice is so pure and sweet."

Angelina sings a song that she wrote for Michael:
 "You Are The Best Thing In My Life".
Michael loves it and he wants to marry her. You tell him that he should move in with her.
"I love you too," she says.
