I stood in total shock...Not like I hadn't seen a murder before...Why was I so shocked by this particular one?
"Kevin" she said softly..
"Her neck was broken...." she said softly..She could see how upset I was....
His partner, Detective Sirena Pile and Detective Angie Belton-Barlow looked at the body...
"Her clothes are all in tack...She was strangled and then dumped...Quickly..No attempt to conceal the body...The killer didn't even weigh her down.."she said..
"There are at least two street cams ....Wonder if they picked up anything...?" he said..
"So Kevin you know this girl right?" she asked..
Lamecia had been missing for Two weeks...Mindy Reagon , who I had initially been looking for had been missing for four weeks now.
Her trail and the trail of Mindy Reagon had grown as cold as ice and I was frustrated....Then one of my operatives heard over a police band that a young woman's body had been found floating in the river and I drove to the scene hoping it wasn't Lamecia...
It was though and one mystery was solved...Lamecia had been murdered... I was inconsolable...I blamed myself.. She had been seen talking to Bonnie and I ,Maybe she was seen in the restaurant talking to us..
After our visit, We had interviewed all of his women...Brad Ruland...That cocky lowlife bastard...
I was certain that he had murdered Mindy and Lamecia....But we had no proof and no physical evidence of any wrong doing on his part...
Sepia hugged me, She could see how upset I was..
"Awww baby...I feel bad too...I liked Lamecia...I had a spot for her at my office...I was going to call her....She had just told me the week before when I saw her at the Jewelers that she was thinking of leaving that Lingerie store when school started.." said Sepia..
Mindy had had the links removed...You could text with this thing, make phone calls and even go on social media with it...But it's a watch...The small print would have me squinting...It looked very expensive."said Sepia.
"I was going to call you..We found something..."said Sissy..
"Sirena and Hop found this in the glove compartment of Lamecia's car.."she said.
"It's not her number or her boss, Mindy Reagon..."I said..
"I know you guys have a copy of this..Can I keep this number?" I asked.
Brad Ruland checked her out and smiled..
"WOW! Ummmmmmm, Somebody is going to be real lucky seeing you in all of this.."he said and smiled..
"My husband."said Sepia..
"Ohhhhhhh you're married...Newlywed?" he asked..
"No..we've been married almost five years and we have a baby.."said Sepia..
"You want to uh put the spice back in your love life huh?" said Brad..
"Yeah,kind of.." she said..
BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!! Beep Beeep BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! came a noise from behind a recently painted part of the back wall..
''What is that noise?" asked Sepia..
''What noise..?" said a startled Brad..
BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!! BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! came the noise again..
"That noise?" she asked..
He looked startled..
"Oh that...I -I -I uh have no idea...Hmmmmm...Some kind of static.." he said..
She paid for her purchases with her company credit card..
"You need to look into that...Have a nice day.."she said..
Sepia smiled and walked out...She got into her car and pulled off.
Brad looked at her and smiled..
"Damn...I'd like to look further into her...She was fine." he thought...
Three blocks away...She drove up to the car ,Bonnie and I was in....
"Husband, your hunch was right...Bonnie dialed that number and I heard a beep, very loud...He's got a wall in the back that looks like it was recently dry walled and painted...." said Sepia.
