If it takes a village to raise a child, then it stands to reason that it takes a village to murder a child.
So, when Holly Smith was found dead in Elmwood Park, the sheriff arrested entire village of Elmwood.
Then, he arrested himself. Because he was the sheriff of Elmwood, and just as guilty of Holly Smith’s murder.
The county coroner (who lived in Elmwood) said that it was too soon to call it murder.
“I haven’t even looked at the body yet,” he said.
Except when I murdered that poor, sweet child, he thought.
As every murderer thought.
