Section Three


"Death is a terrible business", the Coroner Francine Keeley, said.

"I know that", Sheriff Davis Franklin said. 

"It's nearly 1972, Sheriff. Everything's changed", Deputy Al Young added. He looked around. Suddenly dozens of protestors marched towards them. "Isn't the killer caught, Sheriff?", Jane Anne Blyth asked. She looked at Francine; she wanted encouragement as she was a woman, as well. 

"No, we haven't caught him yet. But we will, soon", he answered her.

"Soon. Ten girls have died since 1966 to 1970 in Austin, Texas. They won't be going to their families; they will be buried underneath the soft soil in the graveyard cemetery", Jane said.

"How do you...?", Deputy Sheriff Al Young said.

"I keep all of the newspapers on the deaths. It's a sad record of crime and horror in Texas". Jane waited for them to say something; Francine sighed.

"We're doing our best", she told her.

And she shook her head with frustration.
