Iginigiit ni RD Carranza na may droga sa aking sasakyan. Hinahamon ko si RD Carranza na ibigay na sa akin ang mga bagay na nakasaad sa sulat na ito. Dito niya mapapatunayan kung totoo ang kanyang sinabi.

Kung patay na si Richard Santillan, kahit anong bagay, pati droga, ay mailalagay ng kapulisan sa aking sasakyan. Panis na ang script na ito ayon mismo ng isang pulis na dumalaw sa burol kagabi.

Kapag hindi niya ito ibibigay bukas, sinunggaling si RD Carranza. This crime and its coverup will definitely go up to his level.
