This is such a long ride Hank said.

O stop it we have been in here for twenty minutes Natalie said.


She had been his assistant for five years coming. This was their newest case out of the
hundreds they had solved so far.
! can"t believe you convinced me to come out here to talk to her anyway Natalie said.
#ell Nancy $artin is the best suspect we have had since we started Hank said.
Okay but still why couldn"t she come and see us Natalie said.
%ecause she is in a wheel chair and can"t drive Hank said.
#hy couldn"t someone go drive her here said Natalie.
&rom what ! have heard from around here she is 'uite stubborn Hank said.
They had (ust pulled of the road into the driveway the old rusty mailbo) which was barely
standing had a very faded number *+*.
! guess this is it then *+* Swift,Tree drive Hank said.
#ell then lets go in Natalie said.
They entered onto the driveway and drove about a mile until they finally reached a round,a,
bout type driveway. The house was so secluded they could see nothing but trees and weeds. #hen they
got out of the car the walkway cement was all cracked and had overgrown weeds and grass in the
cracks. -s they walked up the steps to the porch that overgrowth on it they heard a sound of to the
right side of the house. -nd with Hank every little sound made him (ump and start being suspicious.
The stairs creaked as they walked toward the door. #hen they knocked they waited about five seconds
when they heard nothing they knocked again. Still nothing they (ust finally tried the door when they
found it open Natalie poked her head in and called out $s $artin. They heard no response so they
crept in a little more and called again. -fter that they walked into the kitchen and found the
.efrigerator on the ground tipped over on its side with Nancy $artin underneath. /ead.
O my gosh Natalie shrieked.
! better call the captain Hank said.
0!NT1.$!SS!ON2
Natalie sat down on a chair by the wall trying not to think about $s $artin or look at her poor old frail
body.
#ell so much for her being our top suspect Hank said.

said temper raising hands shaking.

outside to meet him. They also had the usual medical team to deal with the body.
