Six weeks later, Basil got the information he wanted.
As he sat in his chair, he looked over the information.
Isabelle Cassidy was born in Clearwater, an extremely violent town in Texas. He was surprised by just the amount of crime and murders that happened in the towns. He realized that's probably why she acted so masculine now. She had no choice but to toughen up to just survive in that town.
He read that she left Clearwater when she was sixteen, along with that rat friend he saw in the Rat Trap. He wondered briefly if they were lovers, but shook that though from his head. Their body language he saw from them showed only friendship, not intimacy.
He read on, seeing they went to another town called Travis County. He quickly took out a map of Texas and saw Travis County was about 20 miles from Clearwater. It took them about 3 weeks to get there and it was also during the middle of summer, so it was hot and treacherous journey to the other town. He wondered briefly just how the two teenagers made it through. From the report of Travis County, it was a rather calmer town then Clearwater.
He looked at the registry of the town and saw the daughter of the blacksmith was named Cassidy. Basil guessed it was a relative.
She stayed there for nearly eight years, living in a boardinghouse with a few other woman and her friend, Thomas. It seems in the second year she's been there, there was a string of bank robberies or other type of robberies, either in the county, or towns around them for the next couple of years. However, at the last year, there were no robberies at all, which surprised Basil. From what he calculated, there was a pattern, a robbery every three months.
Why did she stop so suddenly?
He looked at the other unsolved crimes in the county and came across to one that both baffled and revolted the authorities.
Five mice were heinously murdered, they were butchered was more like it. He noticed that when the murders happened, the robberies also stopped.
Was she involved?
Was the thief involve in something worse than robbery?
Basil decided to ask Ms. Judson for a pot of coffee, it was going to be along night.
AN: Here we have Basil getting the info he needed and looking it over. He found out Isabelle's birthplace and when she left Clearwater. He doesn't know about Norman, he didn't get all the details he needed. So, he finds out that she and Thomas goes to Travis County and that they did some robberies.
The Travis County thing is actually from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, that's where Leatherface lived. Yeah, I just had to use that.
So, Basil stumbles on a cold case murder and it seems Isabelle is involved. Just what does that mean?
Anyway, enjoy and comments are loved! I don't own GMD, just Isabelle and Thomas!
