MWW Day 5 - Beth Anderson's Jack O'Banion
All I can tell you so far is that a female body was discovered in the back yard of a family here in Valdez while their yard was being dug up in preparation for an addition to their house. The medical examiner has confirmed that she was a murder victim. Her identity is not known as of yet and we have no missing persons reports to go on. I’m heading over to the M.E.’s office right now so I’m sorry, I can’t give you any more details at the moment.
Mrs. Morressey is understandably stressed due to the victim having been buried in her yard. When I have more information I’ll call a press conference.
How did you come to be in Alaska? You were in Texas weren’t you?
I was. I rode up here on my Harley from Dallas for a vacation, dropped in and chatted with the chief at the time, who was thinking about retirement. A few months later he did retire and I was offered the chief’s position here in Valdez. After giving it a whole lot of thought I decided to take it.
What about a love interest? Those Alaskan nights get awfully long, dark and cold. What do you do when you are not working? Or are you one of those cops that never aren’t on the job?
I am one of those cops that never isn’t on the job, yes. Every chief of police is.
I understand you have bunch of media breathing down your neck. I know those TV people can be really bad. I’m a newspaper reporter. How about giving me a little inside scoop?
I’ll hold a press conference whenever I have any more information. At the moment, I have none and I’ll have to cut this short now because I have work to do. Thank you.
Chief, it’s been enlightening. If I ever have some free time I might look you up in Alaska. To find out more about Jack and Raven, you have to pick up this Kindle bestseller. Check it out here: http://www.bethanderson-hotclue.com
