Kill Me Silently (Completed)

Detective Chealsea Keller has been given a special case. A string of murders have happened and the only witness is a girl... The only problem is, that girl is mute.


3. On the Case

I scanned the papers again trying to find any detail I missed. Nope. But nothing adds up...? There have been four murders, all dotted around New York. All close to a clothing store. Cause of death is probably from the holes made... The holes where buttons are. All vic's were wearing button up shirts. Strange. That also ties in with the button hair accessory. This is getting weirder and weirder with every new revelation I make. 

"Chelsea?"My friend and forensic, Julie Callastone, burst me out of my thoughts.

"Yeah? Sorry, new case... Kinda mind flipping too,"I grimaced at the 'dead end' case lain out in front of me.

She smiled sympathetically,"That's what I came here for actually, oh and also to give you a coffee, you look like you need one."She said, walking to my desk and handing me a steaming cup of liquid. 

"So what's up with your side of the case? Anything on the vic's bodies?" I sipped the comforting drink and relaxed into my chair.

She frowned, as if remembering something,"They're really strange. The places where buttonholes were, there are now actual holes going through the entire body. No sign of a struggle and no head trauma, just a few lacerations around the main cuts. This is similar on the other bodies as well." It sounded horrible, it probably was. That was one of the main reasons I quit the job, I couldn't take too much gore. Especially the sadistic torturers. Ugh. I shuddered at the thoughts. 

"I guess so... God, this is disgusting... Plus my only witness is a mute. Helpful huh?" I groaned at the possibility of 'interviewing' her.

While my expression remained relaxed, Julie's forehead crumpled in concentration,"What if..."She started, pausing as if to round her conclusion,"The killer knows the mute? Maybe the killer knows that she knows something... So forced her to become mute." My eyes widened at the idea... I never thought of that... It kind of makes sense.

"That makes sense,"I nodded,"So we have a key witness, bodies, time and place... But no suspects with no motive." She frowned again. 

"The next thing you have to do is obvious... 'Interview' the witness," She made quotation marks at the word 'interview'.

"Yep... Oh this one's gonna be hard." I grimaced. Julie gave me a pat on the hand as reassurance .

"Don't worry, the sick person who's doing this is going to go down,"She whispered, almost to herself.

I really hoped so, if not... I don't know what I would do... I have my mind now set on capturing the freak who killed all these people.
