Terri always called. Bonnie Maness was worried now. Still, she thanked Terri’s friend for the call and asked that he please have Terri call home as soon as anyone heard from her. Hanging up the phone, Bonnie Maness paced the floor, uncertain about what she should do next or how much time was considered a “reasonable” period to wait before taking steps to locate Terri. She and her husband both knew just how uncharacteristic it was for Terri not to show for work without calling someone. Their daughter had been steadily employed since moving out on her own several years before, and Terri had never failed to show for work.
Before hanging up he agreed to call them as soon as he had finished. That call would be delayed. Nothing in his training, nothing in his twenty years of police experience would prepare him for what he would confront inside the town house next door. C. glanced once again at the note taped to the front door. Instinctively, he tried the lock a third time. He rang the doorbell repeatedly before going around to the rear of the unit. He approached the sliding glass door that separated Terri’s kitchen from her concrete patio.

He closed his eyes, trying to convince himself that the scene before him was not real. Terri had been brutally murdered. He clutched his stomach, knowing he was very close to becoming sick. He thought about leaving, about going back outside, if only long enough to catch his breath and regain his senses.
