History: At some point, Detective Scudder was hired by May Parker to find out if Richard and Mary Parker, apparently returned from the dead, were frauds.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#384) - Detective Scudder called May Parker and told her that Richard and Mary were who they claimed to be and he quit. May Parker insisted quite emphatically that he not quit and continue to see what he can find about them.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#385) - Detective Scudder was spying on Richard and Mary from across the street when a cop confronted him and informed him that citizens had complained of a mysterious loitering character. He then busted Scudder for not having permit for his gun.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#386) - The following day, Scudder called Peter Parker to May's house and he told them both that he quit and that a cop had busted him. He suggested that May might have Alzheimer's disease and left.
