The officer nodded as she spoke, continueing writing things down. It seemed like she was distracted, hiding something, but he couldn’t tell. She had just learned that her brother was dead, he couldn’t tell what those small looks and gestures mean. It was a really bad situation he had found himself in.
” Ohkay.” he nodded a bit, shuffling through his clipboard for the small stack of pictures he had brought with him. He set the stack in front of her and sighed a bit. ” Just tell me if you recognise anyone, and from where.” not that she was. Though several of them were in Holden’s gang, it was no one she knew. Holden kept people away from her the best he could.
” Really, thank you for helping us…”
Laura paged thought the photographs. Most of the images were of people she expected to be involved in crime. Your typical roughnecks and ner-do-wells with a couple of stoners thrown in for good measure. But no one she recognized. That wasn’t too surprising, though. If these were the kind of people Holden associated with on a daily basis, it was no wonder that Laura had never any seen them. Her brother would have done anything to keep her away such people.
She shook her head as she set the photos down on the table. “I’m sorry… None of these faces ring a bell.”
The officer’s face fell a bit at the news. Well, it had only been a chance. This man was known to be thorough with his work, and it had only been a slim chance that she would have known these people at all. If the profile of this man had any merit, he would have kept the danger away from his family, his friends. No one would have known the details, so no one could rat him out in situations, probably situations like this.
” Thank you anyway ma’am. If you think of anything, get in contact with us.” he pulled out his card, placing it on the table. ” We will get in contact with you if we have any more questions. ” he nodded a bit and sighed. ” Have a good day Ma’am, and I am sorry again for your loss” and with that, he left the poor girl, not knowing what else to do.
