“Can I go? Need a camera man?” Carla asked.
Howard immediately answered “Sure, it’s cool out so grab a jacket and let’s roll!
We’re flying guys. That’s going to be much easier to see by air.”
Howard dialed home. “Tommy warm up the chopper and grab your camera. We
found something I need you with a clean disk and grab one for Craig as well ETA 10 minutes.”
“Everyone ready, buckled in, headset on?” Howard quizzed, getting three
replies of “Roger,” he said “Here we go.”
Howard made some changes to the dial and said, “Tommy, Carla” no response, “Craig.”
“Good it’s only you and me, Craig, listen I have a bad feeling.”
“Me too I recognize that car Howard.”
“Do you have Betsy?”
“Yes I’m putting you on the ground, get close enough to call in that plate to Blackie. I’m lifting back up for pictures to keep Carla and Tommy away from the car till we know.”
“Understood, I’m ready.” Craig confirmed instructions.
“Head down Craig, till you’re clear of the blades, go.” Craig jumped out and started to
run over to the car, opening his phone and calling Blackie.
“You two start taking photos, wide angle and zoom of the tire tracks, car, everything around the area here.” Howard took the chopper back up.
“Dad there’s a body lying just inside the woods due east, at 3 o’clock from Mr. Jones.”
“Craig, 3 o’clock east straight ahead, body.”
“Plate is verified, never showed up for court, forensics, and police en-route.”
“Is the body Mrs.?”
“Yes, Howard, I can’t look any more.”
“Flag us down out in the field away from the evidence Craig, I see the police coming up to 500 S headed to the entrance road.”
