Hi Mum, it's Sammy clone 36 (Part 7)
I was so pleased to have a ready breakfast, I did the dishes. I know, you are amazed by that thought.
Wait, not broken, just bruised. No typing reports today, I'm going to be doing everything I can standing up.
So while I was at the station, I asked around about Antonio. He was one of their more promising young cops but he just stopped coming to work.
Did anyone report him missing? No, not a soul made a report.
Did they make any enquiries? They had sent a cop to his house but when he met Tatianna, he barely got in two words. He fled the scene without conducting an enquiry.
Wasn't his partner worried? Being a cop is a tough job and Antonio wouldn't be the first to just suddenly quit. No one at the station was particularly concerned about him and their assumption was he left town to leave Tatianna behind.
A wise man once said, "Once is happenstance, twice coincidence, three times is enemy action." There are three missing men from this town, and that doesn't seem much like a coincidence now.
Actually, he probably is a bit on the dense side. Still he claimed to know nothing of interest about tattoos or burglars.
I went back and had a more intense chat with our tattoo artist about those receipts. With the evidence right there, he had to come clean and tell me about who he did the work for.
She admitted her guilt and gave me the stuff to take back, as long as I kept her name out of the transaction. The client won't be happy about no name but they should be very happy about getting their items returned.
I wonder how much being insane helps this relationship along.
It would be nice to have some time to develop a bit of a relationship myself. Still, the job is interesting and there is plenty of time to find the perfect mate for me.
