"You want to hear about our specials? We don't have any."[src]
FBI Agents Chester Desmond and Sam Stanley came to the diner before dawn in February 1988 to ask Irene about murdered teenager Teresa Banks, who previously worked at the diner. She told them that the girl was often late and had a cocaine problem. Desmond asked Irene if she ever used cocaine, to which she said she did not do any drugs. Irene also called Teresa's death a "freak accident." She further told them that Teresa's left arm went numb three days before her death. Stanley then asked to order food and she warned that the diner does not have any specials.
Irene left work later in the morning as Desmond and Stanley got into the former's car.
