Owlshead Mountain: Part 2 – The Dastardly Dr. Kline
Hammer's cistron chirped. He answered it. "Hello?"
“Hello? Yeah, this is Deputy Fitzgerald. Listen, I saw your bulletin and I just wanted to contact you. I thought the body was taken care of, but after I saw the APB I'm not so sure."
"Slow down Fitzgerald," said Hammer. "What are you talking about?"
"Harold Gall's body. I was on the scene when the body was retrieved by ambulance. I was too late to stop a police report from being filed. They even called in the CDC because of the questionable condition of the body. The CDC agent identified it as pneumonia, but I’m not so sure.”
"CDC agent, huh? Did he identify himself?"
"He didn't give a name, now that I think about it."
"Can you remember anything else?"
"Yeah, the body was strangely bloated, discolored, and leaking a smelly, jelly-like fluid—easily the oddest corpse I’ve ever seen. It was transferred to the Samson Forensics Lab into the care of a Dr. Kline. The reason I'm calling you is because Kline asked me to set up a meeting between CIFA and him at 9:30 p.m. tonight at the rear door next to the loading dock. “
Hammer checked his watch. "That's not long from now. We'll be there." He hung up and threw the truck into gear.
"So?" asked Jim-Bean.
"One of our friendlies stepped forward. They think they have Harold Gall's corpse." more
