no one called the doctors and her injuries.

Why does Mr. Dolphus Raymond pretend to be a drunk? Why does he trust his secret with Dill and Scout?
he pretends to be drunk because he prefers the company of black people instead of white people. during this time period no one would understand that. Being drunk would be his excuse of hanging out with the black people and would not get questioned. he trusts dill and scout because they are kids and they would understand him and understand why he does what he does.
What is Mayella's "crime"? What was her only way of getting rid of the evidence?
mayella's crime is tempting a negro. The only way of getting rid of the evidence was to make sure she would never have to see tom robinson again. the only way to do that was to accuse him of something he did not do.
