Jake Kane

"He did it, Lianne. The man is a liar. Nothing changes. Nothing adds up. Not his alibi. Not the sequence of events. Nothing."

Jake Kane is Neptune's resident software billionaire, a beloved member of the community, and a respected family man. Half the town owes their fortunes to his streaming video software company. When Sheriff Mars accused Jake of being involved with Lilly's murder, the townspeople stood behind Jake, and threw Keith out of office.

Jake has a deep, abiding love for his son. All Jake wants is to see his son happy (preferably that happiness involves graduating from Stanford... Law School...summa cum laude.) We don't know really how he felt about his wild-child daughter, but he did cry at the press conference after his interrogation and at the dedication of Lilly's memorial fountain.

However, how much do we really know about him?

Was Jake involved with his daughter's death? Keith Mars seemed to think so, and that was without knowing that Jake was with his own wife Lianne at the time they all thought Lilly died. Jake was far from convincing with the lie he did tell, of being in bed with his wife at a hotel for a few hours. In fact, Keith was so convinced of Jake's guilt that he risked everything to prove it. And failed.

According to his wife Celeste, Jake had and was having an affair with his high school sweetheart, Lianne Mars. Was it to the extent that he could be Veronica's father? Lianne doesn't even know for sure, but does Jake? Certainly, he seemed upset when Veronica told him about the threatening surveillance photos taken by his head of security, Clarence Wiedman. He all but accused his wife of putting Wiedman up to it. Innocent and a fool, abettor and a coward, or clever and a killer?

What's a detective to think?
