DS Mudd was the detective who investigated the shooting of Lawrence White in July 2016. The day after Lawrence was shot in the abdomen, DS Mudd turned up at Hotten General Hospital to talk ask Lawrence's daughter Chrissie and grandson Lachlan some questions about the shooting. DS Mudd asked Chrissie to visualize the events that lead up to her discovering Lawrence. She denied knowing the whereabouts of the missing gun, but Lachlan denied his mother was responsible for the shooting. Chrissie reported a missing vase, but claimed she didn't notice anything else missing. DS Mudd asked Lachlan to confirm his whereabouts, and Lachlan claimed he was in town for his 16th birthday, but didn't have an alibi. DS Mudd suggested that whoever shot Lawrence could easily have known him as there was no sign of forced entry.
