Private detective Becky Altringer got more than she bargained for when she accepted an assignment from Randy Quaid's wife Evi to investigate murder threats against them. The situation got so out of hand that Altringer filed a restraining order against Evi citing drug abuse and mental instability.
She opened up to RadarOnline.com about the ordeal, why she stayed with them, and why she thinks Randy's life is in danger.

"I am very much afraid of Randy. I believe Evi is going to kill Randy and herself," she said. Altringer remembers when she was first hired. Evi believed that the mob or insurance carriers killed David Carradine and had then set their sights on the Quaids.
Randy and Evi "argued a lot" and "there was so much Evi hid from Randy," according to Altringer. Those secrets included drug abuse and money issues.
"Demerol use, the abuse of it, what I saw. She hid the fact that she owes a lot of people a lot of money," she added. "I would go to bed sick to my stomach."
When she asked Evi why she snorted the demerol for her migraines, Quaid's wife had a quick explanation: "She said her doctor told her if she took it in her left nostril it would go up to her brain."
Altringer attempted to inform Randy about his wife's behavior but was blocked from doing so.
"She wouldn't let me alone with Randy... I tried to get out as much as I could the day that I quit," she alleged.
Clearly still distraught over the situation, Altringer tried to hold back tears when explaining why she went through with the restraining order and why she stayed with the Quaids for as long as she did.
"I just want to be paid for my services and want Evi to leave me alone," she said. "I stayed because I cared about him Randy and maybe someway Evi would realize she needed help. I tried to convince her in every way that she did."
