"Come see this," Johanna said. The deputy led her into the garage. They peered out the back windows into the field where other deputies began putting down yellow tented markers.
Sara pressed her forehead against the glass, angled her gaze downward and, repulsed, jumped backward. "Who the hell does he think he is?" Below the window lay a hole in the ground the size of a grave. She could only imagine for whom.
Johanna pointed. "See that?"
Sara looked again, stunned by what she had missed. "Who does he think he is?" she asked again, screaming. A dead cat almost the color of the soil lay at the bottom of the excavation.
"He didn't intend to do you in though. At least not last night."
"Is that a joke?"
"No, look. The hole's only a foot deep."
The excavation was only the depth of a shovel scoop. "The graves already found were a lot deeper than that," Sara said.
"This may not be the serial killer's work," Johanna said. "There's no evidence that any of his victims were stalked before they went missing."
"This could be someone else?"
"A copycat sicko, maybe, who likes to taunt."
