During the day of the incident in which Safra and Torrente died:
Did Ted Maher deliberately start the fire? (y / n / don't know))
Ted tried to get the police by calling but they would not respond. He used a candle to trigger a detector and summon the fire department. That alarm went in at 4:54 a.m.
If so, did he start the fire so that he could "save" Safra in order to ingratiate himself to Safra? (y / n / don't know)
That is a fabrication of prosecutor Daniel Serdet and the Monaco police. Ted had written a letter of resignation and was returning to Columbia-Presbyterian; its nursing strike had ended. The job on Safra's staff had a set term.
Did Ted stab or otherwise injure himself? (y / n / don't know)
Ted was cut by two intruders. The cuts required one hundred staples and numerous transfusions. The police destroyed Ted's original clothing and substituted brand-new sportswear which would not be allowed on Safra's staff on duty.
Did Ted tell the authorities who arrived on the scene that there were armed intruders on the premises? (y / n / don't know)
Ted staggered down to the maitre d who summoned the ambulance. He was not able to say anything.
All I need here are the "yes", "no", or "don't know" answers. (I'm familiar with all the discepancies, withheld information and evidence, etc., etc., etc., etc.)
That's the outline of events in as concise a form as possible.

Sonia was disliked and the dislike was reflected in a rapid turnover of staff.
There were occasions when the previous shift had administered medication and somehow the notation was removed from the log--so that the next shift might have overdosed Edmond Safra.
Ted was watchful for that eventuality and avoided the trap.
It seems slipshod from Sonia who was paid so well by Lily.
Someone in New York said her husband sold a gun soon after the death of Edmond Safra. The name was the same, but who can say?
Regarding the fire, the fire report notes multiple sources of ignition on the sixth floor, which were never explained.
The sudden conflagration at 6 a.m. was an hour after Ted was rushed to the hospital.
The category three bulletproof glass was said to be unbreakable by the firemen--three such references in the fire report.
Yet there is described a 20cm/8in diameter hole in the four-layer, inch and five-sixteenths glass, and it is shown on the Dateline episode.
If the firemen couldn't break the glass, what caused the hole?
Monaco's bloody knickers' syndrome.
