Officer Johnston, a seasoned, burly patrol cop, opened a large filing cabinet and pulled out a thick folder. Reading glasses rested midway down his nose. The dent between his eyebrows deepened as he perused the contents of the folder, including a photograph of a young man in his late teens with short, curly hair.

He read the bold headline sprawled across a yellowed newspaper clipping—‘Murder in Danville

Heights: First in Over 30 Years’.

The name of the victim was Ross Dawson.

Johnston had been the first officer on the scene. He remembered it clearly. He had never seen anything like it—a young man bloodied, bruised, and choked to death inside the preserve. He felt deep sorrow for the victim and was still haunted by the traumatic sight.

Shocked bystanders had watched as first responders secured the scene. He recalled pained faces in the crowd whispering and wondering about what had happened.
