Mickey was thinking that when he met Sheriff Cole and Doc Morris leaving the Cody house.
"How she doin'?" he asked.
Mickey looked from the Doc to Cole and back again. Neither spoke, so he stepped across the front of Sheriff Cole and blocked his path.
Sheriff Cole reached up and put his hands on Mickey's shoulders. "The girl's in a bad way, Mick. Ma Cody aint much better, neither."
"Who done it?"
Sheriff Cole ignored the question and turned away. He was looking for Eddie Sherman.
"Cole?" Mickey questioned.
"He's there," the Sheriff answered. "Come with me, Mick."
