Body found…

They found her body out on Highway 24 just east of town…tossed aside in tall weeds like a mattress that fell off the back of a truck on moving day…it just laid there all stiff…bruised and cut…people wouldn’t recognize her…I didn’t recognize her at first…took a second and a third look ‘fore I realized it was Tom Paul and Sandy’s daughter lying there in a decomposed state…I’d say she’d been dead for three or four days…

Sandy called her in missing about a week ago…short girl of fifteen with blonde hair and green eyes…skinny as a rail and a pierced left eyebrow…she was last seen at a strip mall over by Lima…drinkin’ a soda pop and laughin’ with friends…that’s where they say they got her…

The young girl tended to live on the wildside a little bit…liked to party with boys much older than her…had been in and out of drug rehabs since she was twelve…liked her meth…she was spotted a couple of times over where she wasn’t suppose to be…over at a trailer park on the Southeast side of town offa Wayne Trace…some said she was sellin’ her body over there too…didn’t have the heart to tell Tom Paul or Sandy…they’d piece it all together if they wanted to…most folks don’t…

And we have the question on our hands of who killed this young girl…stab wounds to the gut…looked like the blade was pretty long…jagged…there’s a lot you can tell from a cut…Could’ve been anyone that did it…names would be thrown ’round as possible suspects soon enough…she hung out with all these homeless dudes…guys who come to town and don’t stay too long…do their business and hop on the next train…leavin’ damages behind…

And I was the one who had to tell Tom Paul and Sandy that their little girl was dead…never liked doin’ that part of the job…who would…

The writing is based on my surroundings and what I've been surrounded by. This language is coarse and politically incorrect; which I make no apologies for. These characters are not nice and to use any other dialogue would be disingenuine. That being said, I choose to roll the dice. dm seay
