He said I was too slow bringing in the kids. He slapped me on the head and called me all sorts of Names.

MI – CSI – Agent Brown’s Shining Moment #2 • A black Cadillac tore around the busy street corner, slowing as it approached the steps of the courthouse. The tinted, passenger-side window rolled down and a semi-automatic handgun poked its barrel out. Pauly Gillespie, mob informant and protected witness, stood frozen in this tracks. Pauly’s FBI bodyguards threw themselves on top of him, but not before 2 shots erupted and Pauly had taken a bullet in the shoulder. The Cadillac screeched across 2 lanes of traffic. But it made the mistake of turning left down an alley and getting stuck behind a double-parked delivery van. The 2 hit men scrambled out and raced away – right into the arms of 4 off-duty officers. Having heard the shots and the sirens, the officers grabbed the running men and held them for the FBI. Agent Brown was new and was asked to clear the Cadillac out of the alley so that traffic could continue. Brown adjusted the rearview mirror, backed the car out and drove it around to where his colleagues were Mirandizing their suspects.
Brown stood and watched. One of the suspects was tall, lean and sullen. The other was a good 5 inches shorter, Agent Brown’s height. He was big through the chest but short. He spoke animatedly, gesturing freely with his hands. The director was upset since the suspects had ditched the gun and their gloves in the alley. The director asked which criminal had been the shooter. “Not me,” said the large, short man. “Not me,” said the lean, sullen one. Agent Brown smiled. “I know who the shooter was,” he said softly. WHO WAS THE SHOOTER? The shooter was the smaller man, Agent Brown had to move the mirror when he got into drive. The larger man was the driver and the shorted person was the shooter.

Before the game, the boys were in the kitchen, helping their mother fix snacks. Junior heated nachos in the microwave and Sonny poured pretzels and potato chips into bowl. Mari McCormick was mixing ice, ginger ale and rye together into glasses. “Make mine strong,” yelled her husband. Junior saw bruises on his mother’s arm. “Did he do that?” he asked. Marie did not answer. “What’ll you do when he retires and is here all day long?” Sonny asked. “ No one in our family gets divorced,” Marie said. “Oh dear. I forgot which is your father’s. Taste the drinks, Sonny.” Sonny tasted the drinks, nearly choking on the 3rd drink. “ It’s about 2x as strong as the others.” “Give it to me.” Vince was standing behind them, grabbing for his drink. “Making me come in here,” he muttered. Sonny carried in the snack bowls while Junior took in the nachos, just in time for kick-off.
All 4 sat around the T.V., munching on the snacks and sipping their drinks. It was near the end of the 1st quarter when Vince Senior bellowed, “Get me another.” Marie was in the kitchen working on the refill when she heard a gasp, then a moan.

MI – CSI --- Friends at the Office • Detective Gibson was visiting his accountant in a small, seedy office building when he heard noises coming from above. First there were angry voices. Then came a scream, followed by a heavy thud. Gibson raced upstairs and found an open door. Wiley Kline, a lawyer, lay on the floor of his office, a switchblade sticking out of his chests. Gibson called in the murder and waited on his partner to examine the office. Not far from the victim’s hand was a half-smoked cigarette. On the floor beside the cigarette were a turned-over wastebasket, a cheap lighter, and a blank notepad. On the desk they noticed a telephone, a pen, a shot glass smelling of bourbon, and an ashtray filled with cigarette butts and burned matches. “ It’s funny how none of his neighbors poked their heads out,” Gibson observed. The floor contained 3 other offices. The first office had Helen Hurly a massage therapist. She told them she was relaxing between appointments.
“I didn’t hear a thing,” she claimed, pointing to the stereo headphones she’d just removed. The second office had Jackson Cod, an artist. In one hand he held a paintbrush, in the other an unlit cigar. “Sure I heard the scream. But I was right in a moment of inspiration. Besides you hear all sorts of things in the building.” Jackson held out his cigar. “Either of you fellows got a light. The 3rd office had Lionel Wafer, a chiropractor, also between appointments. “I heard a scream. What happened?” Gibson asked Lionel why he was holding an ice pick. “Oh, I’m defrosting,” Lionel said and returned to the old, ice-ladened refrigerator in the corner. WHO IS THE PRIME SUSPECT?? The prime suspect was Jackson Cod who was a smoker and was missing his lighter.
MI CIS – Death of a Deceiver • Mona Fisher turned and gazed at Jerry, sleeping next to her on the plane. Her eyes wandered down to his wedding band.

The next morning, February 19, Jerry Fisher shoveled the snow from the driveway, kissed Mona good-bye, and headed off to work. At seven that evening, a cleaning woman entered the law offices of Fisher & Dyce and discovered the body of Jerry Fisher. He had been stabbed to death, a sharp letter opener still sticking out of his chest. Lieutenant Miller interviewed the young lawyer’s widow. Mona was distraught. “We were only married four months. I never met a man more romantic and honest. Why would anyone want to kill him?” Jerry’s law partner Kyle Dyce stated, “Jerry was a man I trusted completely, and a darn good lawyer. He was still working when I left. About 6 pm I walked across to the health club.
I didn’t work out, just used the tanning bed. I suppose I was jealous of Jerry’s great tan. The lieutenant spent the next hour going through papers and discovered that Jerry Fisher had been skimming from the law firm. He also found a telephone number for Gail Lowenski. The attractive redhead was devastated by Jerry’s death and even more devastated to hear that he’d been married. “We were together just this afternoon, at my apartment. The louse told me he was single. For 2 months he was stringing me on. I was so sure he was going to propose. Who did Lieutenant Miller know had done the crime.

Ms. Lowenski was the murderer.

Frank and his brothers are Gregor’s only relatives and would inherit the $14 million prize. “also, Frank had opportunity. Gregor was a paranoid guy living in an isolated cabin.
