Time for another snippet from:
SETUP: The three girls whose twenty plus-year-old remains washed up in coffins at Wiscoy Creek have been identified as Lisa Appleton, Rachel McKenzie and Samantha Briggs. Samantha was a foster child at Dave's house when he was a kid who he knew as Sally, and it was the last place Dave seen her alive. This week Pepper needs to ask our reporter, Dave, some questions. She is sharing a bit of what the forensic's team found inside one of the coffins with him to see what he says.
As always the words in italics is the "other" voice in Dave's head.
And now the snippet (Pepper speaks first):
Well your Sally, a.k.a. our victim Samantha Briggs, had a stuffed dog, more teddy bear style construction made of polyester, a man made fabric that’s plastic based, which is why it survived.”
“Was it yellow?”
“Yes, extremely dirty, but it was yellow. And you knew this how?”
Dave slumped against the jeep; please, he thought, no more headaches—focus. “Because I gave it to her—I think I won it at the county fair.”
You think? Oh come on Davy, quit being a chicken shit, you can remember—or do I have to tell you?

***When three small coffins are unearthed near the Wiscoy Creek during a routine dredging operation, it’s the last thing DAVE ROBERTSON, of the Lamont Weekly Times, expected. Pinned to the skeleton’s clothing are pictures from milk cartons of missing girls.
Dave is stunned to find that one of the girls is Sally―a foster child his parents had cared for through the Friends of Foster Families (FFF) program. Cold case files reveal the girls disappeared over 20 years ago. Knowing his house was the last place he saw Sally alive, he can’t help but suspect his dad.
How can he write the biggest story of his career if his father turns out to be the killer? If the voice in his head would shut up and let him remember, he might figure it out before he loses his mind and his dad is charged with murder.
