She found James in with a new litter of puppies that had been rescued. “They seem to be doing well,” remarked Chris.
“Yes, they are,” agreed James. “Good to see you back, So much excitement around here with the murder and all.”
The murder! She had forgotten all about the murder! “Who was it James?”
“Millie Gamboge and there seems to be no leads at all as to who might have done this.”
“Well Millie has made many enemies through the years, I am sure the suspect list is long.” replied Chris “According to Wyatt he is at a dead-end.”
James shook his head. “Murder is not an everyday occurrence around these parts, very unsettling.”
Chris had to agree this just did not happen in Danger Bay!
Season 10—Chapter 1—A Murder in Danger Bay—Episode 4:
Leaving PawZ Chris headed to Silverthorn’s Café and found Wyatt getting his morning brew. Wyatt seemed glad to see her and she could tell he wanted to talk. “This murder and not being able to solve it is not a good thing Chris, the people of Danger Bay want answers and I am not able to give them.”
“What do you know so far Wyatt?”
“Don’t mean to interrupt you two,” Chris and Wyatt looked up to see one of the railroad engineers smiling at them. “The night of the murder of Ms. Gamboge, myself and a crew were on the tracks bringing back an engine that had been in for repairs. We did not think it odd for lights to be on in the cabin but we did notice a car parked a short distance away. It was a late-model Silver Ford Fusion.”
Wyatt was very interested and got his notebook out to jot this information down. “Thank you for coming forward this is the first new lead I have had.”
“Glad I could be of help,” the engineer, K. C. Jones, went back to his buddies and Chris and Wyatt wondered who was driving that car.
Eagle Point Marshal Lieutenant Hiram Silverthorn, Jr. walked in just as the engineer finished was leaving, “Hello Chris, Wyatt, you look like you have news.”
“We do. We have a lead,” Chris replied.
