Of Course She Didn’t Do It. It’s a 6.

Suspicion clung greedily to the cigarette smoke permeating the 8 x 10 interrogation room…

Like I told the first detective, my husband called me in all kinds of a panic, implying he was in some sort of danger and to meet him at the carousel downtown; honestly, I thought it was another one of Jake’s melodramatic conspiracies.

You mean your soon to be ex-husband, Mrs. Mitchell?

Neither one of us has signed the divorce papers, so no, Jake is, was, my husband – for better or for worse.

It seems not for worse Mrs. Mitchell as you appear to be coming into a great deal of money now that your husband is dead, isn’t that true Mrs. Mitchell?

Why, yes detective, it would appear so however, absent my attorney, I have nothing more to say this evening so why don’t you show me to the door like a polite detective.

    That carousel ended up being a deadly place to meet. She seemed surprisingly calm through the interrogation. Hmm. . .

      It was! Cool as a cucumber as they say… however, I’m not convinced she’s guilty of the crime 🙂

    While she is clearly a lady under duress, it is less clear that she is guilty of any wrongdoing and she is not showing signs of stress. You are finger picking the six stringed story lines!

      Agree, totally. She knows how to handle pressure – any pressure.
      Why, thank you D. Avery! Thank you 🙂
