Serial (100 Words)
Detective Jake Monroe examined the bloody crime scene. All the expected signs were there; the slashed throat, the look of terror in her eyes, and missing shoes.
The Riverside Killer struck again.
“Number five is a blonde?”
He turned to look at his partner Max who entered the hotel room.
“Do we know her name?”
“Let me see,” Jake scooped up her purse to search for her ID.
“You must be relieved.”
Jake sighed. “Was that necessary?”
Max shrugged. “Hey, at least this time there’s no evidence tying her to you.”
Opening her purse, Jake found a photo of himself.
