Included in her casefile is the story of how the prime suspect in her disappearance met his death. Normally I would think it too far removed to be included, but the story was so wonderful I couldn’t resist. The guy was an abusive, violent stalker type. He climbed into his ex-girlfriend’s car’s trunk, apparently with the intent of ambushing her, but he got stuck in there and died of heat stroke. Impaled on his own sword, so to speak. And his ex-girlfriend drove around for several days without realizing he was in the trunk.
I reckon she must have freaked when she found him. I mean, anyone would freak to find a mysterious dead body in the trunk, but imagine her call to the cops: “My ex-boyfriend’s, um, dead body is in the trunk of my car. And I have no idea how it got there. Honest…”
Unfortunately, whatever he knew about Jamie’s disappearance, he took to the grave with him.
