How could a love story so sincere and so pure end like this?
Everybody had a question on their minds.
Nancy and Johns love story had touched everybody’s heart. Sam decided to break the silence, controlling his emotions.
“Did John report the crime?”
“Then, how do you know all of this?” Sam asked.
“George Collins, Nancy’s brother reported the crime” Baker replied.
“What was the outcome ?’’ Sam asked.
“The case was investigated but since we couldn't find the dead body or John, who was the only eyewitness, the case was dropped and still remains unsolved” Baker provided him the information.
“Where is John?”
“Nobody knew anything, not even whether he is dead or alive. Even after the incident, he never contacted his home. The biggest question here is that if he is alive, why is he hiding?”
“The reason is clear” Sam’s partner claimed, who was quiet until now.
“ Yes. The reason I brought this case to your attention is that I think John may be involved in all of these murders’’ Baker said.
“ Yes, you are right. His involvement in the murders would make sense. But, how can he enter the crime scene when the place is closed from all sides and how he is killing the victims? This is becoming something of a mystery” Sam said.
“How did Nancy's brother take the news of the case being dropped?” Sam asked.
“ Badly.... He came here often to follow the progress of the case. In fact, he could have asked everything over the phone... but no... He comes personally... In fact, I felt sorry for him. But what we can do? We have our limitations” Baker expressed his concern about George.
“I think we can add Nancy’s brother to our list of suspects” Sam said.
“ I don’t think so. I think you should meet him. Although he is little crazy, he is a very simple and straight forward person” Baker said.
“ But we should consider him as one of the possible suspects” Sam said. “Until proven otherwise.”
Baker pondered over this and eventually nodded in affirmation.
