The Texas Cadet Murder Case
A Dark December Night
The dark figure turned away from the victim on the ground. Adrenaline pumping, he swiftly headed towards the idling Mazda Protégé. Scrambling behind the driver's wheel, he shifted into gear, stepped on the gas, and turned to the young woman in the passenger seat, saying breathlessly, "I love you, baby. Do you believe me now?"
"Yes, I believe you, I love you too," replied the young woman quickly, and, almost as an afterthought asked, "What have we done?"
"I don't know. I can't believe we just did that," he replied. Panicky, he drove a short distance before turning the headlights back on and then drove off down Seeton Road.
At sunrise, a local farmer spotted a human figure on the ground. At first glance, he was confused and afraid. The car leaving the crime scene was long gone.
