We walked upstairs and down the hall....Kayla gasped when she walked into the apartment and saw the dead body of Latroy Sparks sitting upright with blood on his cheeks and a small bullet hole in the side of his head...
"It's alright baby.."I said.
"It was a twenty two....I can tell by the size of the hole..." she said.
"That's because you're human Angie.." I said.
"I need to talk to you later." I said.
"I knew you had more to tell me Kevin...What are you working on?" asked Sissy...
She told Rollie that she's been married before..I couldn't find any school records anywhere under her name,No marriage licenses, No Divorce decree,No drivers licenses before 2005..No birth certificate in the State of Pennsylvania...Nothing...And nothing on her that goes beyond 2004...Her business began in 2005..All of her credit and debit cards and bank accounts begin in 2004 or 2005..
Her drivers license was issued in 2005...Her residences don't go beyond 2004 and get this...Her social security number formerly belonged to a long dead white man who died in 1958..." I said.
''Did you tell Rollie any of this? You know they are planning to get married in a few days." said Sissy, who was laughing uncontrollably now..
"Kayla told me about a woman named Salima.....Who showed up seemingly out of nowhere and has been hanging around Genviere...So I looked into her too..She's also from here,Philadelphia PA....but I have a date of birth and school records for her...It appears she married John Payton in 2000...They didn't have any children..He was a suspect in a heist involving Latroy Sparks in 2003...He was killed in a car explosion and their other partner vanished without a trace in 2004....Sparks did a nickel in the pen...but two million dollars was never recovered from their last heist...Now Salima started a very lucrative business in 2005 with insurance money from John Payton's death...and as far as anybody knows There never was any Genviere in her life...Not in any school she ever went to,nor anyplace she ever worked....So my question is...Where do they know each other from? She's lived in three apartment complexes....No Genviere Payton there and I talked to members of her family..friends and former classmates and people she worked with before starting her business..Genviere is not a relative and they have never heard of her or heard her name mentioned by Salima ever...And yet the two women know each other from somewhere.. Besides her business, which began about ten years ago..I have no record of this Genviere working anywhere else....Now how did she survive for 28 years without working?" "I said..
"Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...This sounds like Latroy was blackmailing both Salima Payton and Genviere Payton...I know Salima Payton was John Payton's widow..But Genviere is not a cousin or relative...and you say John Payton had no siblings right? What is the connection there?Or is it a co-incidence that they both have the same last name?" asked Sissy..
"We will.. What I've got right now is a dead gangster who might have filled in all the blanks...and a deeper mystery." said Sissy..
"Ohhh poor poor me.." she said smiling..
Sissy had had Carlotta ,Tyriq and Jimmy pick up Genviere for questioning hours before...
and it was the same thing...Gone!!!!"said Sissy...
"Thank you Salima..You always were very attentive to me.."said Genviere..."I'm sorry for what I put you through...I am..." said Genviere.
Her muscles were paralyzed...She was gasping for air, but her lungs had collapsed....She felt herself getting woozy and her head fell on the table with a thud!
"Sweet Dreams, My Sweet....I love you Genviere!"
She got her pocket book and quietly walked through the crowd...and left the club...She walked out into the Philadelphia Night..
