Who is Mitchum?
Robert Mitchum, (only his mother calls him by that name), is an ‘unofficial’, private investigator for the town of Marlboro and it’s surrounding area. He also delivers the newspaper part-time, sometimes with his dog, Bart Simpson. Mitchum had been through a few forensic and crime scene schools in the Navy as well as some classes through Dutchess Community College.
He was rejected from the Navy Seal program and now resides in Marlboro, New York, where he has more relatives than there are cops in the area. Mitchum is close with his mother, his cousin Bailey Mae helps with the paper route and Nathaniel, (Natty), his brother, well, he’s a drug dealer.
