Example text

Moreover, he “was not dripping wet, if he was wet at all,” Firestone remembered. Calling 911 minutes prior, Roseboro said he had just pulled Jan out of the water. Heading for the victim, Firestone noticed that Showalter was kneeling beside Jan, his hands crossed over her chest, shoulders hoisted upward, chest out, performing CPR. Jan was wearing a sweatshirt and shorts. She was on the ground, a halo of water stain on the concrete surrounding her body. Because the Roseboros owned such a large corner lot (probably the biggest in the neighborhood), to the south of the pool area, heading toward the turkey house, was a wide open space, a grassy knoll fenced in by a line of trees and thorny pricker bushes and a swamplike ravine.

Sure,” Roseboro said, responding to a trip downtown. The guy was preoccupied and flat, Neff observed. No emotion one way or the other. Family members nearby—Neff didn’t know at this point whose side of the family they were from—gave Neff a feeling that he was not wanted. There was a sadness there for what had happened, implicit on the faces of everyone. But it was overshadowed in some ways by an eerie feeling of coldness, Neff later explained. It made the detective feel that in the Roseboro house, men in blue were the enemy.

He decided, however, not to say anything. Neff came out of the squad room and into the lobby. He asked Roseboro to follow him. All he wanted, Neff explained in not so many words, was a timeline from Roseboro of the day and night. He needed to know if Jan had been drinking. If, perhaps, she had been complaining of any pain the previous day, or later on that night. Was there anything out of the ordinary or odd that had struck Roseboro regarding his wife? Tests on Jan’s blood would take time. Who knew if Jan wasn’t some sort of a closeted alcoholic.
