The lights filled the nights skies, filling the dark void with vibrant heart beat in the heat of the night. Detective Garret sat in the parking lot off of the highway, drinking his morning coffee when the call went threw to his receiver.

“Women in her mid 30’s located at 456 Heights View found strangled in her bathroom, locals have reported to seeing a man in his mid 50’s wearing a black coat and blue jeans he is believed to be a Caucasian male.”

Detective Garret flicked the receiver off and rubbed the sleep off of his eyes. “Another hard day in the city.” Garret spoke to himself in his rear view mirror. Garret made his way to the scene of the woman’s apartment. As he approached the scene, he noticed a male sitting on top of a picnic table at the park. The man was wearing what was described on the receiver.

Garret flashed his flashlight at the male who was watching the scene from the park bench. “Can I ask you a few questions?” Garret asked, the man did not respond to Garrets approach.
