Eddie Sherman was in a group of men and woman, standing and whispering amongst themselves at what they considered to be a respectable distance from Old Ma Cody's place.
Approaching the group, Sheriff Cole called Eddie Sherman away and strode away himself, Mickey and a confused Eddie Sherman trying to catch up.
The Sheriff suddenly stopped and turned abruptly.
"Who found Anna Cody?"
Eddie Sherman stuttered and panted, just about getting out "I did."
Mickey grabbed Sherman's arm.
"Easy, Mick," Sheriff Cole guessed what Mickey was thinking, then suddenly strode off in the direction of the river. "Follow me, men."
