Case IX: A Shocking Development (Working Title)
Dr. George Hernandez, the Chief Medical Examiner for Bernalillo County was kneeling in front of a large easy chair and the body of an elderly man. “I’ve got to hand it to you, Frank, the folks here at La Vida Aureo certainly have a way of making my life more interesting.”
“Skip the commentary, George. Please just give me the basic facts.”
“You won’t believe it, but I think this old geezer was electrocuted, most likely sometime yesterday afternoon. I’ll know more when I get him on the table.”
Although Paloma Angostura had told Matthew Dudley that the man’s name was Conrad Alexander, Dudley always thought of him as The Wall Street Journal Man. It was ironic that this man, the retired CEO of New Mexico Power & Light, would die by electrocution.
