“And where is she?”

“I don’t know.”

Detective Kevi shook his head. “So, she works here?”

“Yes. For three years. One of the caregivers.”

“I see.” He took pictures with a phone. “How old was she?”

“Early twenties … 23?”

“And her relationship with Mr. Lohmas?”

“She was … oh …” She felt her face burn. “Purely professional, I’m sure.”

“Of course.” Kevi’s smile was unconvinced.

Kevi stretched. “Go get my breakfast, I suppose.”
