"I killed him! I swear I killed him!"
This is the way a case is supposed to end.
"I killed him!" the woman on the vid-screen shrieks again. "I killed him!"
Her aged features twist into a mask as she howls the words over and over. She pulls hanks of iron grey hair out of her scalp, gouges the wrinkled flesh of her cheeks. Blood mingles with her tears.
This is the way a case is supposed to end, I tell myself again. Not how it's supposed to begin.
"I killed him!" the old woman screams one last time. Then the picture cuts off and the vid-screen fills with static.
"What do you make of that?"
