Killing Father

 "We didn't get anything off of this " said Detective Tyriq Pile... "No prints, no DNA, No nothing...This van was washed down completely and whoever washed it used Bleach...Smell it?" he said.

 "Yeah, I do....This guy is smart...Bleach destroys DNA...He knows what he is doing." I said.

"I just came from Cyclops Insurance...Me and Carlotta interviewed everybody there including the last three people to use the van...Two are females and both of them are brunettes...so that rules them out and one guy is African-American and bald...so that rules him out....but I did get an interesting person..." said Detective Jimmy Barlow, who had just joined us.



"A recent employee..A Gilbert Wilkerson!! he used to work there and he also worked at United Insurance....He was the agent for all three of our dead guys...The manager there said that although he recently left their company, they let him use the van when he needed it...He told them that he was fixing up his house and that he needed the van to move some materials...He had the van at least a day before and the same day as all of the murders....We checked it out...Carlotta has the ledgers..She'll be here soon." said Jimmy.

"Oh My God...he had this van?? This van??" I asked.



"Yup...all three days..." said Jimmy.

"Isn't he some kind of friend of yours?" asked Detective Tyriq Pile...


''Yes ...Yeah he was...He was my agent when I was using United Insurance...He insured my condo and my car...Then he left United to go work for The Cyclops Insurance Company.." I said.

"It fits ADA...He knew all three of our dead guys..They were his clients..he had access to all of their personal files ..would have known where they lived , where they were likely to go..who they were married to. He lied about not knowing the last guy." said Detective Pile..

"Yeah...but why? Why would he kill these guys....What did they do to him?" asked Detective Jimmy Barlow.

I thought of the conversation he and I had had the night Carlotta and I had run into him...



"Is that why you have that peculiar limp?" asked Carlotta.

Gil smiled..

''Yeah Darlin...Your boy there walks normal....You would never know he was injured but I've had five knee operations... Good thing I was in the NFL.. My poor mom wouldn't have been able to afford it..." he said.


"How is your mom?" I asked.

"She passed away about a year ago." he said.

''Sorry to hear that...How about your dad?" I asked.

"Who knows and who cares? Probably chasing some broad young enough to be my daughter." he said ruefully.

"It's not what they did to him...it's what they represent...Who they represent....His Father divorced his mother when he was 16 years old....It devestated him..His father was a wealthy real estate developer...He married a woman , just barely 21 years old...They lived out on the main line, while Gil and his mom lived in a rowhouse in Fishtown...He went to college on grants and loans just like the brothers....If he hadn't have wound up in the NFL... He wouldn't have had much....He only played 5 years and for three different teams...
Tore his ACL...He was killing his father everytime he killed one of those guys...They were just like his father, married a younger woman and left a family behind. Jimmy, your  theory was right on the money" I said.

''Damn right...Am I good or what ADA?" said Jimmy.


"Yeah ,you were right on the money Detective Barlow."I said.

"Bummer...this poor guy just had some bad luck." said Tyriq Pile...

"I didn't know he took this to heart....Not like this..."I said.  "I'm going to get a warrant to search his home..."
I said and walked away.... "Good Job you two." I said.

II-



I ran into Sissy and Carlotta as I was walking out of the C.I.D. building to head to my car.... Sissy pulled me to the side...

"Keith...uh....I don't know how to tell you this....In fact...I'm going to let Chica tell you." she said.

"Huh? What?" I said.


"There is no easy way to tell you this...So I might as well tell you here....Your friend, Gil Wilkerson is possibly our killer....I kept noticing the limp the guy in the jump suit had...It kept bothering me and then I remembered...he had the same peculiar limp.....It had to be him!!!....So me and Boss Lady went to his office...I told him that Boss lady was thinking of getting her car insured with a new guy and so the three of us had lunch...He's at that age where his hair was thinning and he excused his self and went in the men's room...I figured he'd comb his hair while he was in there and being a typical man, he left his hair in the sink...I collected his hair in a bag and gave it to Dr. Hunter and guess what? We got a hit!! It's his DNA!!" she said.

"You went in the men's bathroom?" I said.

"Yes...No one was in there." said Carlotta....Sissy smiled and shook her head...

"I already know he's our guy...Tyriq and Jimmy found out that he rented the van on the days of the murder..Same van....He's our guy....I'm going to get a warrant to search his house." I said.


Carlotta  asked me- "Are you alright?"

I smiled..."Yeah..I'll be alright." I said.

"It's tough to have to arrest a friend..." said Sissy...

''He broke the law...it's my job." I said.

"But I know it's never easy." she said

I smiled at her.

"Nothing ever is." I said, sick to my stomach at the thought of what Gil might have done.

III-

Duke and Tyriq took the door...Sissy, Carlotta and Jimmy followed with six uniformed policemen armed to the teeth... Gil wasn't home..... We found the black jumpsuit in his bedroom closet...
The Ski mask was in the washing machine...It didn't look like it had been washed yet.....And Sissy found the more than likely murder weapon...a garrote!!

"This is too easy...Too much...We got him!!!!" I said.

''But where is he?" asked Sissy.

"I think I know....Duke...it's your case...You make the collar, but I want to be there." I said.

"Okay ADA....Lead the way..." He said.

IV-


"This is where I took Dr. Hunter the other night." said Duke as we drove up to the restaurant.

''Yeah..you were right about the steaks..." I said.

''Aren't they thick?" he said.

"Yeah man, I could hardly finish mine." I said.

"Wine wasn't bad either, but I prefer my little wine bar " he said with a smile...

"So uh you and Dr. Hunter uh?" I smiled...

"Man...I'm not the type to kiss and tell but that shy act she has in public is completely different in the bedroom...She's wild man, and loud too, she lets you know when she's enjoying it...That's why I was late the other day..she wore me out!" he said.


"Really? Dr. Hunter??" I said.

"Don't let that shy ,sweet quiet demeanor fool you?" said Duke.

Detective Jimmy Barlow met us at the door.....

"Showtime gents...He's in there with a young lady.." he said..."Tyriq ,Carlotta and Lou are down the street with back up...they are moving in." he said.

"Let's do this ." I said.

Gil Wilkerson was sitting at a table with a very attractive young blond when he spotted me ,Jimmy and Duke walking towards him...We had one uniformed officer with us.

He smiled when he saw me...

"You figured it out didn't you?" he said...

"Gil Honey...What is this about?" said his date...

"Excuse yourself darlin...I have to go with these men." he said.

She got up from the table but she looked confused...

"Gilbert Wilkerson....I have a warrant for your arrest for the murders of Wallace Wheaton, Daniel Radcliff and Melvin Weiner...You have the right to remain silent...anything you say can and will be held against you ..You have a right to an attorney...If you do not have an attorney ,one will be assigned to you...Do you understand these rights?" said Duke.

''Yeah, yeah...yeah, I know the drill." he said.

He saw Sissy and Carlotta enter with about 6 uniformed policemen...He looked at me and smiled...

"Cops....They're cops....They came to my office the other day to get a car insured...You sent them...That's your girlfriend?? She's a cop...Ohhh woww!!" he laughed..

"Why did you do it?" I asked.

"What do you have?" he asked.

"Everything, DNA from your hair and hairs found on the bodies, your garotte with your DNA on it, your ski mask and your jumpsuit." I said.

"All obtained legally right?" he asked.

"Yes...I had a search warrant." I said.

"I knew you would...I guess you found out about the van?..."he said.

"Yup" I said.

"I knew if anyone would figure it out...you might....I kind of let something slip didn't I?" he said.

"Yeah you did." I said.

"I suppose now I should be quiet and not say anything else huh?" he said.

"That would be how I'd play it." I said.

Detective Tyriq Pile ,Detective Edwin "Duke" Baylor and the uniforms marched him out the door as onlookers gawked...

Sissy looked at Detective Jimmy Barlow...

"Come on Jimmy...Let's go outside." she said as they walked out into the night air...

Carlotta looked at me...

"You gonna be okay?" she asked...

"Yeah...I guess...Emma Strand, Soloman Foster, now him....wow....my past is starting to collapse around me.."I said.

"Well look at the bright side...You have me....and I'm predicting a very bright future for you tonight...That is if you want some company." she said.

I looked at her and smiled...

"Sure do." I said.

EPILOUGE-




Gil Wilkerson confessed to all three of the "Water Fountain Murders " as they were being called and was sentenced to three Life Sentences...

He told a psychiatrist that he was "killing his father" everytime he killed one of those old men.  He said he dumped them in a water fountain because that's the last place he saw his father ...In front of a fountain with one of his "bimbos" as he called them...

Carlotta came to my loft that night and with the case over, I wasted no time getting back to where we had been a few nights before in the car....There was no talk about police work at all...

A lot of heavy breathing, kissing and the tossing of clothes until we were both lying across my bed..

She leaned over and kissed me...I eased her panties down and slipped her bra off...I kissed her neck and behind her ears....She kissed my chest...I entered her slowly again and again...In and out...softly, steadily...slow sweet lovemaking... moaning, groaning...

She was on top, riding me, her long hair flinging into my face....I cupped her buttocks and moved her up and down....


I turned her over after awhile and stared into her beautiful face...and kissed her and entered her missionary style...


My poor bed rocked from side to side..the headboard gently slammed against the wall...


"OH MY GODDDDDD!! OUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!" she moans....as we make sweet love into the wee hours of  the early morning!

Some hours later, when we were satisfied and spent...Carlotta and I lie across the bed talking...

"That was worth the wait wasn't it?" she asked me...

"It sure was...Thank you..."I said.

"You're welcome...Thank you too." she said.

"I'm just glad this case is over." I said.

"Me too and I don't want to talk about it at all." she said as she curled up under my arms and I pulled the cover over us....within a few minutes she was asleep...

"You're the boss " I said as I kissed her and watched her drift off , She momentarily rose up and kissed me on the cheek.

"Love you baby!" she said in a soft whisper and then drifted off....I smiled...

I imagined , beds were squeaking all over the city tonight... Duke and Dr. Hazel Hunter were probably making some springs squeak as was Tyriq and his wife and Sissy and Eddie C. and Jimmy??...who knew where he was? Maybe he got lucky tonight and picked up some girl in a bar....I just hoped he wasn't working..


This was one night, when I indeed was having a life...As Sissy might say!
