Jury duty and testifying Edit
- Main article: The Memoirs of the Clouded Kokoro
Upon hearing Decargo Mieterman saying that William Petenshy's gas meter doesn't have any coin, president Valve Altamont's wife sent Mieterman to question Petenshy about whether or not he was stealing gas. Unfortunately, they couldn't find any evidence to confirm their suspicions.
Mrs. Altamont was called as a Juror No. 4 for the trial of Sōseki Natsume for Petenshy's attempted poisoning. She wanted the trial to end quickly because she had an executive meeting at 10 A.M. During the first closing argument, she revealed her identity as the gas company's president's wife and their investigation of Petenshy's gas thefts. With the potential of being a gas thief in mind, Juror No. 1 changes his verdict. Because Juror No. 5 is the only juror who doesn't follow suit since he wants to leave as soon as possible, Mrs. Altamont changes her vote instead. When Decargo Mieterman is going to testify about Petenshy potentially stealing gas, Altamont decides to take the stand as a supervisor.
She reveals that the new gas meter the company developed measures the size, shape and thickness equally so that it will only take three pence coins. Ryūnosuke Naruhodō figures out that Petenshy is indeed a gas thief, he was making coins out of tea using soap and poked a hole in the meter to let the liquid out.
The next day, Mrs. Altamont says William Petenshy's death is sympathetically inevitable. During the second closing, she says gas cost money to go around town and keep it safe. She wouldn't stop talking about gas due to all the criticism it was getting. She also reveals that the company has its rival companies that don't even sell their own gas, they secretly steal it from the Altamont Gas Company by using pipes. So the company has people ask the customers if they encountered any dishonest companies during the fee collecting. This makes Juror No. 3 remembers when he was visited by an employee the other night. He revealed that the companies blow into the pipe upsetting Mrs. Altamont, but the juror said everybody knew about that so it wasn't a secret. She revealed if you blow hard into the end of a gas pipe, the low pressure will temporarily rise causing every connecting lamp to waver, therefore the company can tell whether or not the gas was stolen. This helped Naruhodō realize that Petenshy was doing that to Sōseki Natsume and did it before to a previous lodger.
Mrs. Altamont has a love of gas, her husband's product.
