This week’s episode features Chapter Three of Black Brick. Here is an excerpt from the show:
THE SUN PEEKED OUT of the clouds as Shannon and I walked onto Kingstone Campus; it was nice to have a brief moment of heat to temper the cold of the early spring. As the sun disappeared again, I dug my hands deeper into the pockets of my coat and tried to clear my head from the morning’s research. Everything I’d read was starting to jumble together, and I was glad for the exercise.
“Why can’t the news sites get anything right?” Shannon asked as she walked with her phone in hand, eyes glued to the screen while she flipped through stories. “Here’s one that claims you and I were Latino men. I just finished another that said it was a fight between three rival gangs.”
I was glad the media didn’t have their facts straight. It made it harder for the incident to be linked back to us.
“Any word on the ID of the victims?” I asked, wishing that we would have had time to snap a few photos of Andrews’ assailants. At least then we would have had something more to look into.
Shannon shook her head without looking up. I took her arm and guided her to one side of the sidewalk so that a cluster of approaching girls could pass on the other side.
Jeff Beltran’s contact with the police hadn’t got back to him yet, so we didn’t know what evidence they’d been able to collect. Depending on what came back, Beltran might use his connections to obfuscate anything that led to us.
