Detective Morrisey saw an object in the distance that appeared to have washed up onto the shore just about a half mile south of the chemical plant. As he approached the object he saw that it was a single men’s sneaker, and beckoned a nearby uniformed officer who was at the scene and instructed him to put the sneaker into an evidence bag.
Morrisey was tired and hungry but managed a slight grin as he wondered when the proverbial other shoe would drop.
