Mysterious Man - part thirteen

Atualizado: 28 de set.

Ben smelt as if he hadn’t bathed for ages while something strange surmised. His peculiar aura got Inspector Lee sick to have to conduct questioning at his residence, but it made sense to cover all of Mariano’s tracks to find out what really happened to him.

Ben was in his mid-30s, unshaven while dressing shabbily. Asked what he did for a living, he replied that he was currently unemployed. Mark Lee had no doubt, nobody would employ such a smelly while scruffy person. Asked what happened the night of his discussion with Mariano, and Ben waved it off as though it had been a small incident and nothing occurred.


Puzzled Lee, grilled him intently to get to the bottom of what really happened. Then when that failed to get the appropriate answers, he used his policing interrogation methods.


Understanding the correct processes and legal parameters for interviewing, questioning, and interrogation, can make the difference between having a suspect’s confession accepted as evidence by the court if it got to that stage. However, Mark wasn’t convinced the discussion and type of brawl between Ben and Mariano could have incited such a ferocious outcome. Furthermore, there wasn’t enough incriminating evidence.


Next, Lee took his mobile out of his pocket and raised it to make a call. He went on to dial some numbers, and then it rang for what seemed like an eternity before entering voicemail. He tried once more. This time though someone answered it!


Take care!
