The serial killer in the town where Adam and his wife of 10 years lived struck again, claiming a third victim. All the victims were female, 30-35 years old, all strangled.

“Sweetheart, you have to be very careful till the police catch this lunatic,” Adam warned his wife as they got ready to go out. I worry when I’m at work and you’re alone.”

“I don’t worry as long as you’re in my life.”

“You should have worried,” Adam said aloud when he arrived home alone. “The opportunity of a serial killer around was too great to pass up.”

    Imagined this in black and white, like an early Hitchcock movie. Enjoying catching up with these tales. :-)
