The uniformed officer flipped through his notebook. “Her roommate reported her missing at 7:30 this morning,” he told Detective Fred Morrisey. “She went for a run last night at around 9:30 and never came home.”

“And these are the missing girl’s sneakers?” Morrisey asked.

“Yes, I texted a photo of them to the roommate and she confirmed it.”

“I don’t see any signs of a struggle,” Morrisey said.

Detective Ron Hayden, Morrisey’s partner, walked up to Morrisey. He held out a smashed mobile phone. “We found this in the bushes. It might be the vic’s.”

“Damn,” Morrisey sighed.

    It is amazing to me how just giving a character a full name can flesh him out quite a bit. Very effective here. I’ll have to remember that!

    A collection of Morrisey cases would make a great short story collection!
