This is a follow-up blog to last week’s blog called “Begging.”
The detective came to our house last week. The first thing that happened, was that he saw the family picture of us from Tim’s last Father’s Day (the one on the back of Bitter and Sweet). He immediately recognized Tim and said he went to grammar school with him. I think that has motivated him to try harder than normal to figure our case out.
He has taken DNA samples from Colin and I. He also took samples from the cupboard shelf where the money was stolen from. Horrible circumstances aside, it was kind of cool to watch. He told us we wouldn’t have results by the next commercial, though. 🙂
The plan is to get samples from the people who were at my house that weekend. It’s amazes me what they can find out from a little cotton swab. I believe there will also be a lie detector test available to us if need be.
To my surprise, the detective was quite optimistic about nailing this down. So here is my last appeal. Whoever you are, you still have a little bit of time to come to me and tell me what happened. I won’t press charges and we will figure out where to go from here. If this drags on and the detective has to find you, it won’t be so civil. I have been praying, as have many, many others, that your conscience will nag at you incessantly until you come forward. Trust me, you don’t want to live with this hanging over your head. Do us both a favor and do the right thing. Today.
