Lost and Found

****Previously Henry made a phone call. Click the link for the last installment of Vivid Black – The Call

“Dammit Jones! Get those files found or I’ve gotta go to Ray with this.”

“Henry, I don’t know what’s going on. Results are in each files. Those sheets had to be removed one by one.”

Henry angrily scrubbed his face. The photos showed an oval black smudge on the right cheek of each victim. The shape was good for a fingerprint. It could be grease, coal dust.  The trace analysis could  ID the killer. The crisis of lost or misplaced paperwork was a cauldron on the verge of boiling over.

He heard paperwork shuffled.

“Wait wait! God… here they are.”

      My Capt. (Hubs) always tells Blossom “it’s in the last place you had it and the last place you’ll look”. She is never impressed with that response.
