6. The Footprints
The police department and Detective Flanders continued to look for more evidence at the crime scene for the next few hours. It was a public park where many people passed by on a daily basis; finding traces left by the murderer seemed an impossible task. It was almost midnight and most of the police officers had already gone home for the day when Flanders noticed something in the mud. He called the commissioner to check while he began analyzing. Morrow didn’t notice anything unusual.
“You don’t notice anything strange there?” The detective asked.
“I see a lot of footprints. Am I missing something?”
“Look more carefully,” advised Flanders and a subtle smile appeared on his face.
