"Not many people will be sad she's gone. I'll be one of the few."

Walter Robbins is a character in L.A. Noire. He is a person of interest in The Studio Secretary Murder case.



Robbins ran Levine's Liquor Store and was good friends with Evelyn Summers and her husband. After Evelyn lost her job at Keystone Films, she found herself out of money and homeless, prompting Robbins to offer her a place to stay at the liquor store. Evelyn made a small makeshift bedroom in the storage room, while Robbins provided her some food and money. Although Robbins knew that Evelyn was an alcoholic and that letting her live in a liquor store was a bad idea, he allowed her to stay realizing she had very few friends, and took pity on her.
