Mark was surprised to receive a registered letter from the sheriffs department in Wheeling, West Virginia. He lived in Chicago and couldn’t imagine why he’d be getting such a letter from any sheriffs department, much less one from Wheeling.
He tore open the envelope and read the letter.
“We have recovered a vehicle, a 1953 Chevrolet Deluxe, which has been identified as the one that you reported in 1958 as having been stolen from the parking lot of your apartment building in Chicago. See the enclosed photograph. Please make arrangements to retrieve your vehicle from our impound.”
“I’ll be damned,” Mark said.
