Friday Fictioneers — Prime Suspect

“There,” Detective Fred Morrisey said to the tech. “Back it up a few frames and pause it.”

“I see a woman in the shadows on the right,” Detective Ron Hayden said. “She’s taking a picture of our victim with her smartphone as he’s leaving that store.”

“Can you zoom in on her and lightened the image up?” Morrisey asked the tech.

“Holy shit!” Hayden exclaimed. “That’s our vic’s mother-in-law. She blames him for the mysterious disappearance of her daughter last year.”

“Yes,” Morrisey said. “And now I believe we have a new prime suspect in the murder investigation.”

    I guess you’re not doing FFF anymore now. But I did it anyway 🤷🏼‍♀️ Since I’m a fairly new blogger, I was running out of new repeats. Hows that for an oxymoron?😁.
