The phone rang as I
down to my evening meal, and as I answered it I was greeted with "Is
this Karl Brummer". Not sounding anything like my name, I asked
who was calling. The telemarketer said he was with The Rubber
Powered Freezer Company or something like that.
Then I asked him if he knew
Karl personally and why was he calling this number. I then said
the side, "get some pictures of the body at various angles and the
blood smears", I then turned back to the phone and advised the caller
that he had entered a murder scene and must stay on the line because we
had already traced this call and he would be receiving a summons to
testify in this murder case.
I questioned the caller at
great length as to his name, address, phone number at home, at work,
who he worked for, how he knew the dead guy and could he prove where he
been about one hour before he made this call. The telemarketer
was getting very concerned and his answers were given in a shaky
voice. I then told him we had located his position and the police
entering the building to take him into custody, at that point I heard
fall and the scurrying of his running away.
As I returned to our table my wife asked me as why I had tears
streaming down my face, and so help me I
couldn't tell her for about fifteen minutes. My meal was cold,
but it was the
best meal in a long, long time.
