I hated seeing the shirt on the washing line in front of the Harrison's home. Didn't anyone tell them about the murder? Donny Cartwright had a shirt just like that one when he was found in the front garden of that house six years back. Unsolved.
I used to work for the Cartwrights, they sold up and moved after the tragedy. Heard that Mrs C died of a broken heart. Donny her youngest still lived at home, a momma's boy. Heart of gold. Slow. Wouldn't hurt a fly.
Such a shame what happened to him. If he hadn't been looking for rats down by the boat house at the lake just as I was unloading my sack of stolen goods, then I wouldn't have had to silence him. Would I?
I didn't ever kill anyone before so didn't realise that my threats never to tell or I'd kill his pet rabbit and the pressure to his neck would cause so much trouble.
I hate seeing that shirt.
