Default Moriarty Where Are You?

To catch a criminal one must be one. Demons casting out demons. What would you do when committing a crime? Premeditated and passionate? What would you do otherwise? Would you have an escape plan or alibi ready or would you wing it?

Have you ever broke the law and inserted yourself in the investigation for kicks? In America Statutes of Limitations vary but ten years is a safe bet. I submit, a criminal resume' is preferred in this case. Have a Doctors degree? A whole list of accomplishments? Congrats, how has that been working in this case so far?

My intent is to stimulate legitimate discourse in this case as if you just wandered in off the street with moderate knowledge. If things get hinky, so be it, we're all adults here.

"Would you have an escape plan?" I have a relative in the film industry who worked in the CSI television series. Criminologists, etc. had input. My relative said the experts say, the downfall of most murderers is they do not have any workable plans past the actual act. They may spend years planning murders but never think about what happens after. Sloppy cover ups, etc. catch many a killer.

For what it's worth.

There are some pretty stupid murderers out there. People who take out insurance policies on their spouses and kill them a week later. That sort of thing.

Lynn,

I wouldn't wait that long. I saw Fred McMurray pulling out of your drive last night.

I would also recommend that you steer clear of Edward G. Linford's brokerage.

Hello Robert. Thanks.

You've weighed my encyclopaedias of philosophy then? No more than five pounds each.

Cheers.

Hello Lynn,

Sadly, I'm old enough to get that reference.
