My best friend Rob talked me into adding crime scene cleaning as part of my small cleaning business, “You'll be the only one doing it!” “There aren't a lot of murders around here, in case you haven't noticed.” I should have known there was a catch. He's an attorney – there's always an addendum. He wanted me to prove Mildred Oches didn't beat herself to death and to find her killer. In the process I ticked off the local Sheriff's Department, piqued the interest of the killer and worked on the mystery of Mildred's missing son. If that isn't enough – Johnny's back in town. Luckily he brought his team of merc's to help keep me out of trouble.
No sense putting it off any longer. I was getting paid really well for this. Nervous butterflies tap danced in my stomach as I pulled my filtered breathing mask over my nose and mouth and stepped through the plastic shrouded threshold. $2,000 to clean one room. That should have been my first warning. It wasn't enough. Even as I stepped into the house and breathed through the filtered mask I could smell death. It hadn't been kind to Mildred. From where I stood in the outer hall I was able to see just how insane our sheriff's department was for labeling this a suicide. How could one old woman do this much damage to herself and the room around her, before dying? A lone bloody hand print on the hall wall in front of me pointed to the crime scene to my left. It was too much like a Halloween horror hall. I expected a bloody clown to jump out at me waving a baseball bat or an axe. Fighting my fears I took a couple pictures of the hand print and the floor under it – then several straight ahead into the room beyond.
