How does Catherine, Myrtle’s sister, in some small way, save Gatsby from being the subject of vicious gossip after he is killed?
Catherine insists to reporters that Gatsby was a good man, who could not have been responsible for her sister’s death.
Catherine swears to the coroner that her sister had never met Gatsby and that she was completely happy in her marriage.
When speaking to the police, Catherine describes Wilson as a deranged mad man who had chosen Gatsby as a random victim.
Although the newspapers offer her money and fame, Catherine refuses to say that she was ever suspicious of Gatsby.
Catherine explains to the coroner and the police that it was Tom, not Gatsby , whom Myrtle was having an affair with.
