Justice Insurance

My eyes lock on the coffee table, littered with cigarette buds.

DNA.

Nearby lay the victim in a pool of blood. Just like my last case.

That should have been an easy win, except for that sleaze-bag’s attorney.

Lack of evidence my ass.

Now a killer walks the streets. That is not something I can live with.

I picked up the gun by the victim. This is no longer a suicide. I place a cigarette bud in the ash tray.

Justice Insurance.

Outside, I call the evidence team.

“Bag the table,” I said. “Everything we need is right there.”

  1. I guess others have been tempted, but if he can’t do his job properly, when he messes up, all his former work will be questioned, .

  2. I could imagine the police office planting the evidence out of his frustration and desperation in losing the previous case. I’m not for tampering with evidence of course but I could feel his angst. Well-written scene.
