“Miss Santiago where were you when the body was found?”Officer Mendez asked
“I was right here in the lounge with Maria. We only got up when Andrea screamed, I still can’t believe his dead. I mean who would want to kill Jeffrey,”
Andrea sat in the corner trying to process Jeffrey’s death it just didn’t add up. Jeff was in perfect health, their relationship was blooming, he had purchased the vineyard for her a show of faith that he would leave his wife.
“Miss I know this is a bad time, but we need a full statement from you. It would help us get a step closer to find the cause of death,” Carlos asked
Andrea couldn’t speak at first, but once she did the words came tumbling out, so did an avalanche of tears.
From the shadows I watch, they all deserved to die. Sticking their greedy conniving claws where they didn’t sow. The vineyard wasn’t theirs for the taking and promises shouldn’t be broken.
