Well Dressed With Red Hair

The next day was business as usual at C.I.D. headquarters...I checked in on Sissy and my wife and the other detectives to see what they had found out...

The first Detective I ran into was Detective James "Jimmy" Barlow...
"Hey ADA...I went over to Chinese Bob's and inquired about the food and guess what? The food was ordered over the phone by credit card...Amy Radcliff's credit card...He never saw her...He just took the order...He said that it sounded like a female voice making the order and that at times she sounded like she was crying..Traced the call to that same burner phone." he said.
"This guy is good...Really covers his trail..." I said.

Sirena and Hop were the next two detectives I ran into ...I was really glad that I had mentored young Tony Hopkins when he was a patrol officer...He had even then what I knew would make a good detective..And Tyriq's wife, Sirena had been a godsend...Together these two were a great team...They worked well together.


'"I canvased that broad area and talked to some people and they remember seeing a well dressed white guy reddish, brown hair,and a young white girl in the neighborhood early yesterday...They bought a few things at a Hess station, using her debit card and credit card...and they settled in that for sale house that we found them in...He was described as Tall, athletic and was driving a white Nissan Sentra..a 2011 or 2012..I cross checked license plates and it turns out that that is our murder victim's car..." said Sirena..

"I showed that spyware to Sharon and she not only knew what it was, she knew the guy who sold it..She and two FBI agents paid him a visit today...She'll be back soon..." said Hop..

II-

"Piece by piece we'll get there...This guy is good, but like all of them, he'll slip up." I said.

My wife ,Carlotta and Tyriq arrived with Sissy a few minutes later...



As usual, Carlotta gave me a big kiss...

''How's my Honey Bunny?" she said.

''Incredibly horny" I whispered in her ear...She blushed like crazy...I cracked up...."Well anyway..We've been very busy...Boss lady, Rico and I talked to her friends, classmates, relatives...She didn't have an enemy in the world it seems..." said Carlotta.

"Top and I went over her financials with a fine tooth comb...she comes from a kind of well to do family...Nothing was out of order..She was attending Penn...Second year student...Good grades and all...They said that she had started dating a guy name Brett, Tall athletic built, Well dressed....But that not much was known about him...Peculiar thing though...Almost all of her friends said that he creeped them out..Didn't like his picture taken and was very controlling of Amy and bossy..."said Tyriq.

"On the last day of her life...She went to class..We verified that, She had dinner with her parents and she went out for drinks with her girlfriends...She vanished in that club two nights ago...Her girlfriends said that she came with them and that she complained about Brett and said she was thinking about leaving him...He wasn't with them...She excused herself and went to the ladies room and that was the last time they saw her...They thought she had just left and had not told them..We pulled camera footage from the bar...She's seen leaving out the back of the bar alone and getting in her white Sentra and pulling off. That was the last time she was seen."said Sissy.

III-


Duke and Sharon walked in the office at the same time...Sharon was flanked by three FBI agents....

''Sissy..People in your neighborhood described a tall ,athletic built white male with reddish brown hair in the house directly across the street from you...He was renting it...But he used a woman's credit card...a Angela Courtland...I checked her out...Called her phone, got no answer,,,Went by her job and her house..Guess what..Nobody has seen or heard from her in two months..He had been there for at least two weeks..I guess you never noticed him...He kept the shades drawn,kept to himself....Bought junk food, We found a Flat Screen Television and a laptop computer in his room...No prints, no DNA...all purchased on line in the past month or so and sent to another address in Northeast Philly......Got the same description...Tall white male ,with Reddish brown Hair...Well Dressed..Oh yeah...Auto Theft found her car...A White 2011 Nissan Sentra.. No prints or DNA...This cat is good."said Duke.

"We found the guy that was selling the spyware...We shut him down...He was selling black market items..But he remembers our guy too...Same description...We got a partial of him...But he's wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses and his face is covered by his trenchcoat....He paid for everything in cash...A real careful guy." said Sharon.

 "Does this guy ring a bell? Did you date anybody that fits this description?" I asked.

''I'm sorry Keith...I'm not the international lover you  once were...Every guy I've dated was Black...I didn't date any white guys.." said Sissy..

''Well maybe...There was a guy who had a crush on you....that you turned down..."said Carlotta..

"No...I'm afraid not...Nobody like that in my past...." said Sissy...

Just then her cell phone rang again...

''Oh ,Who is this?" she asked..

''Hello Baby..It's me.." came the voice...

"What do you want? Why are you calling me?" she asked and put her phone on speaker phone..

"Because I need you...I need to be with you....I need to hear your sexy voice...I need to be inside of you...It's time to play...Get a pen and a piece of paper...take down this address...I left a little prize for you...Damn you looked sexy today in your tight blue skirt and that lovely blouse......I saw you this morning when ADA Wallace dropped you off...I must say..You have some really good detectives working for you..." he said.

"Yes I do and they're going to catch you." said Sissy...

''No..I don't think they will...They're good...but I'm better......So much better....When are you going to let me have you?"he asked.

"That's never going to happen Brett!" she said.

''Awww ha ha...Brett eh? Your guys are good..but that's not even my name...Just go to that address...byeeeee nowww." he said.

IV-


We found the car halfway submerged in the water , just like he had told Sissy it would be...but the sight in the front seat was the most horrifying thing we had seen yet...It was the decomposing remains of what looked like a woman...The body had decomposed so bad that the only way we knew it was a woman was the clothing still on it...The smell was horrible... The Harbor Police brought the car and the body up as we all
held our noses..




 
Carlotta, Tyriq, Jimmy and Hazel observed the body....

''What a mess."exclaimed Carlotta.

"How long has she been in here Hazel?" asked Tyriq...

"A long time." said Jimmy leaning down and checking the clothes..

Hazel and a CSI person took tweezers and picked maggots off of the seats and the body...

"These will tell you a lot..but just from a wild guess..She's been dead about two months....And being in this water...There is no DNA or Prints..."said Hazel..
Duke was holding a Tablet...He ran the tags through an app he had for registered motor vehicles...

''This car belongs to Angela Courtland...and I'm betting that this is her." said Duke...

Sirena pulled a wet drivers license off the back seat of the car...

"This is her drivers license...I'm guessing you're right Duke." said Sirena.

''Damn...He probably killed her first and began buying things with her credit cards." said Duke...

"He's playing with us...toying with us..."said Hop..

"They always make a mistake.." said Carlotta..

''He hasn't made a mistake yet...he's killed two women and we got nothing.. I'm not blaming you guys...But this is frustrating....In order to trip this guy up...we've got to get creative."said Sissy...

"I've got his DNA...Some of his hair dropped out at the crime scene yesterday....Sharon is running it through the FBI VICAP's website."said Hazel..

"Okay...well maybe we'll get a hit and maybe that photo we got of him..we can blow up and get a better look at who we are dealing with...Let's get out of here." said Sissy..

Just then Sissy's phone rang again...

"This is my secret admirer no doubt." she said..

"Helllooooooooooo baby....Did you see my little package?" came the mysterious voice.

"Yes...We see....You strangled this one.."said Sissy dryly...

''I like to change up every now and then." he laughed...

"I'm going to catch you you know.." said Sissy..

"Nah...You're beautiful...but you're not smart enough to catch me...None of you are..." he laughed.

"Think so huh?" she said.

"You've made a reputation of bringing down some pretty heavy hitters I admit... but you've never dealt with a truly superior intellect.."

''Oh really? You know I like smart men.I find them very sexy!"said Sissy..now sounding very seductive.

"Oh yeah..Then why are you with that dumb ex-con? Don't try to patronize me Sissy."he snarled.

"He's good in bed and he's got a big penis...Can you say the same?" said Sissy...

"Size aint everything...The sexiest organ is the brain..."he said.

"That's what guys who are lacking always say...If that makes you feel better, then fine.."

" Oh yeah? Oh...Oh....Oh Yeah? Wellll....Well....well.....I'm...I'm ...I'm done talking to you today...Good Night!" he said.

"I used that same tactic to taunt Haywood Coley Jr.and it worked....I think you just got to our suspect and it may be the key to bringing him down." I said.
"I hope you're right." said Sissy...She turned and whispered to my wife ,Carlotta.
"I was telling him the truth about Eddie C...I'll sure be glad when he gets back in a few days...I miss him." said Sissy.

"I know you do honey." said Carlotta and they both laughed that conspiratorial laugh that women laughed..

Sweet Dreams Baby


The boxes of Chinese take out sat on the conference room table in our office...It smelled delicious....It was from Chinese Bob's....My wife, Detective Carlotta Rodriguez-Wallace gave me a big kiss in the lips...

"Ohhh thank you honey bunny...we were all famished after cracking that last case...How did you know?" she said..
"Know what? I didn't order this...I didn't." I said....

''You didn't? It's got our names on it...Each container..." she said,.

''Beats me...Maybe Boss lady ordered it." I said.

''No...Not me..I don't have deep pockets like that, moneybags....I thought you ordered it." said Sissy, smiling as she picked up the chop sticks and dug in...


''Who cares which one of you ordered it...It's here...It's got our names on it...and it smells great...I say let's eat"said Detective Tyriq Pile , who along with his wife, Detective Sirena Pile and his best friend, Detective Edwin ''Duke"Baylor began to dig into the good food..
"Wow...This is incredible...If you didn't buy it Keith and Boss Lady didn't buy it, then who sprang for it?" asked Tyriq's wife, Detective Sirena Pile..
"We got fans out there...We crack difficult cases..We save lives...We avenge the dead...There might be a TV series about us one day...The Murder Police" joked Detective Edwin "Duke" Baylor..
"Hey Duke...Save some for us man...." said Detective James "Jimmy" Barlow, who had entered the room with Detective Tony Hopkins..

''Relax Junior...There's plenty food...but you guys better hurry up." laughed Duke.
''Damnnnnnnnn..What a spread." said Hop...."This is easily over $50.00 bucks..." he added...
''Smells great.." said FBI Special Agent in Charge, Sharon Ferrell-Hopkins, Hop's wife and our friend...who had entered with our brilliant forensic investigator and Duke Baylor's wife, Dr. Hazel Hunter -Baylor..
"Mmmmm Yummy." said Hazel...

''Come on and have some...There is enough for you two...Tell those three uniforms to come on in here too." said Sissy.
The food was great, and Hop was right it was close to $50.00 worth of food and with the sodas...Close to $60.00...Who spent that kind of money on us? I wondered as we chowed down...

''Whoever our benefactor is...They saved us all some money today." said my wife Carlotta...
Just then...the phone in Sissy's office rang....

"Who could be calling me now?  I just finished eating...I wanted to stretch out and take a nap.." she joked..

"You got that itis Boss Lady?" laughed Tyriq..
''After a meal like this...You don't?" she joked.

''Yeah, but I can't admit to it..."joked Tyriq....

We all busted out laughing...

II-

"Lt. Sissy Van Buren, Homicide" she answered...


''Helllooooooooo baby...Did you and your detectives enjoy the lunch I sent you?" came a mysterious voice.

"Uhh yes...Who is this...Do I know you?" asked Sissy...

"You did at one time, but I know you...Did you enjoy the food?" came the voice...

"Yes, We all did...Thank you very much..." said Sissy..." I know you, you said?" said Sissy.

"You did and you owe me...You owe me your luscious body...You owe me the pleasure of experiencing you....in the bed.....I'll bet you didn't enjoy that food half as much as I enjoyed watching you and your man make love early this morning..hahahahahahahahaahaha. That should have been me..Making love to you like that...." came the voice....

''Who are you? I don't know you...You don't sound familiar at all... And I don't owe you anything...Anybody I  owed anything like that has already gotten it..believe that." said Sissy..

"You owed me and I didn't get it...You'll know just who I am sexy lady,In due time Sissy...In due time...That should of been me you know...Going inside you, coming out...Kissing your neck...Kissing your sweet lips...slipping your panties off, unbuckling your bra...yessssss...That should have been me..." came the voice..

Sissy motioned for Jimmy to put a trace on the call...At the time none of us was aware of the conversation being held..
"I can tell you what you were wearing yesterday...A tight grey skirt, a white blouse with a black lace bra...and matching black lace bikini panties...I saw you and him...I saw you....By now you're probably trying to trace this call...It won't matter....but check this out Sissy..."came the voice..

Sissy heard a blood curdling scream and then heard three gunshots!!!!!!....

"That unfortunately was a young woman I abducted..You'll be getting a call soon.....I hope you enjoyed the meal...I really do support my local police...Bye now..oh and ...Sweet Dreams Baby!" came the voice.

Sissy looked like she'd seen a ghost...

"Oh My God...I believe our caller just murdered someone..." she said.

"What?" said Carlotta...

"He , he said that he sent the food...and, and,and that he just killed Someone..." said Sissy who sat down in her chair and looked very frail, very weak, very afraid....I had never seen her look like this before.

III-
We found the girl's body!!!!!...In a West Philadelphia neighborhood...What made it strange was this was a caucasion female in a predominately black neighborhood....We found her in an abandoned house...

I stood with Sissy...I had my arm around her...She was visibly shaken..
 "Ohh My God...Ohh My Dear God." said Sissy....

''It's going to be alright Sissy." I said.

''Oh My God...I-I-I can't believe this." she said.



 Carlotta, Tyriq and Duke examined the body...
"It's a white female...She looks about 24 or 25 years old..Cause of death was three gunshot wounds to the head.." said Carlotta.

"We found what looks like the murder weapon in this plastic bag... a. 45...glock! "The serial number has been filed off of it and it smells like bleach...which means no prints or DNA or trace evidence.."said Tyriq..

"Hmmm, I did find a strand of reddish brown hair near the body...it's small, but it might be something." said Duke..

"Let me bag that...I can get DNA from it..She doesn't appear to have been sexually assaulted..From the body temperature..She's been dead about two hours.."said Hazel..
Jimmy walked over to us...

"That trace led me to this phone...It's a burner phone...Drug dealers use it...They steal em and use the remaining time on it until the owner destroys the sim card...This phone is done."said Jimmy...

Sirena and Hop drove up just then...They spoke to the uniforms and surveyed the area...Then they walked over to us...

''We went by your house with a sweep team...We found these playthings boss lady..."said Sirena showing Sissy micro cameras and listening devices..

"This is high grade stuff boss lady...The kind the government uses...I'm going to run this by Sharon....He's been in your house and he's been watching your every private move..."said Hop....

"Oh My God!" said Sissy....

"Boss Lady, who is this? Some old boyfriend? Some guy you put in prison?" asked Carlotta..

''I don't know...He says I used to know him...I used to know a lot of guys....If we cross out my ex-husband and Rollie Rollerson...Who do we have? It's not like I've been a social butterfly." said Sissy...

Hazel,Carlotta and Sirena gave Sissy the side eye....

"Boss Lady..Come on now...You've got more male admirers than the three of us put together." said Hazel laughing..

"We have Captain Ed Cantrell, Rollie Rollerson, Cat Daddy, just to name a few." said Carlotta...

"And that guy that did the plumbing in that building where Kevin's wife found the dead body..That freak that we arrested who nailed the girl to the ceiling...wow...and the list goes on."laughed Sirena..

"Most are safely behind bars or beyond reproach...This wasn't Ed Cantrell or Rollie Rollerson, I know their voices."said Sissy, finally smiling..

''Siss, what about that guy you used to date who worked over in Special Investigations.. Detective Roker." asked Duke..

"Rodney "Hot Rod" Roker.???You dated him??" asked Tyriq..

"He was nice..At least to me...That was over years ago...I doubt that he could put this together...Something like this.." said Sissy..
''What about my friend...ADA Louis Walker?? We double dated once...He was really into you and then you two just fizzled out." I said.
"Yeah, that was him alright...Fizzled out..More talk than action."smirked Sissy..
Hazel ,Carlotta and Sirena giggled..

''No...This is somebody else...This feels like somebody else...and yet...not anybody that I know..but he swears I used to know him...He kept saying that I owed him." said Sissy
as we all stood there baffled.

"I found her pocketbook and her drivers license...Her name is Amy...Amy Radcliff...She's twenty five and she lives in Fox Chase." said Carlotta.

''So what's she doing down here in West Philly?" asked Jimmy.

"She could have been snatched from somewhere and brought here to throw us off."said Tyriq...

"Well first things first...I'm calling in a team...My guys..They are going to sweep your house again Siss and then I'm going to have two two man plains clothes details on the front and the back of your house and on both ends of the streets..These guys are good...You won't even know that they are there unless something goes down." said Duke.

"Me, Rico and Jimmy are going to look up that girl's next of kin, talk to her friends, check her financials and try to reconstruct her last day of life."said Carlotta..

"Yeah, we are going to see if maybe she had a connection to this freak." said Tyriq..

''Don't worry lou, we'll get to the bottom of this." said Jimmy.

"Okay guys,let's release this body...Maybe, just maybe I'll uncover some trace evidence.."said Hazel.

"I'm going to show this spyware to Sharon...See if she can track it down..." said Hop...

"I've got uniforms canvassing this neighborhood and I'm going to talk to people around here,see if anybody saw anything or anyone and check traffic cams, Atm cams and crime stopper cams with a ten mile radius..Something might shake loose." said Sirena...

Sissy smiled wryly..
''Wow..I knew it was too good to be true..Three weeks of peace and tranquility, almost boredom and this happens.."said Sissy.
"That's why they pay us the big bucks...Hey look..where is Eddie C?" I asked.

"He left town this morning..He and Deacons Basil Robinson and Larry Weatherford accompanied Pastor Struthers to Dallas for some kind of Baptist convention...They'll be back in three days.."she said.

''Don't stay in that house by yourself..We'll drop you home...Pack a few things and come stay with us..We have plenty of room..."said Carlotta.

Sissy looked at me..

"Are you sure?" she said.

"Of course...Come on Sissy..You're family." I said...

"Ohhh Okay...I don't feel like being in that house alone tonight anyway...Let's get out of here...Thanks guys...I'll see you in the morning."said Sissy.
We watched as the body was removed....


Soon the crowds, The Police, The CSI and The people from the M.E.'s office all dispersed as did we...


Night time was upon us...

IV-


Being in the house with both Sissy and my wife Carlotta was more temptation than any man should have to stand...Two gorgeous women ,walking around in their night clothes was like my wildest fantasy...Carlotta and I settled in and went to sleep...Sissy settled in ,in the room down the hall...

Sometime around 3:00 am ,Sissy's cell phone rang...

She picked it up..

"Hello." she said.

''Hellllloooo baby..You sure sound sexy when you're just waking up....So you're not at home tonight eh?  I see you have a team of plain clothes guys surrounding your house and you had a sweep team in there huh? Very good...but I know where you are....Shame I can't see you...What are you wearing right now?" came the same mysterious voice.

''Who are you? What do you want?" said Sissy.

''I want you..I want to be inside you.......I want to playyyy with you....I wanna taste youu...ummmmmmmmmmm,ohhhhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhhhhhh....oh my god you are sooo sexy...You should have opened that trenchcoat you had on today...So I could see what you had on.....Ummmmm, The game continues tomorrow gorgeous...Sweet Dreams Baby.Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha." came the voice..

A chill went through Sissy's spine.
