|Pete "Pickup Pete" Mucha|
Pickup Pete looking for cops in all the wrong places
|Portrayed by||Rand Holdren|
Pete Mucha, also universally known as Pickup Pete, is, in the estimation of Detectives Ryan and Esposito, the drunkest murder suspect of 2010, an accolade he largely takes in his stride, with just a brief inquiry as to the attendant prize.
When, however, his attention finally settles on the homicidal component of the statement, Pete becomes almost excessively helpful, pointing out that Donny Hayes paid him, in cash, for the damage to his truck where Donny had hit it with the baseball bat, an alibi which his repair shop, who were paid with the same cash, confirms.
Pete was sleeping off another binge when Donny died, at a friend's house, and so he drops off the radar.
