Answers
The men need an outsider who does not know any of the details of their story so they can get a fresh perspective on it. Moody does not know them or anyone else in town; so, he can have an unbiased opinion on the matter. He can give an objective opinion of whether he believes that Francis Carver murdered Crosbie Wells and how that links to Anna and the disappearance of Emery Staines. Moody is intrigued by the story and believes that Carver is not a man to be trusted. He also takes the men into his confidence and they become friends.
