The Racial Murder in FiftySix Texas in 1952 Part 3

The Racial Murder in FiftySix Texas in 1952 Part 3

Charles T. Ware thought that there was something strange about Kelly’s reaction to hearing that her best friend was dead.

She never once made any indication that she even cared. The next day when the sheriff got back in the office.

He examined the evidence that his deputies had found, an empty book of matches.

A fingerprint had been lifted from the book of matches and the deputies were comparing it to the fingerprints they had on file to see if they could get a match.

The sheriff went back out to the crime scene and started looking around. And then he spotted something, it was a toy that belonged to his daughter he was sure of it.

Had she been present when Mary was killed? How did the deputies miss this piece of evidence? He grabbed the toy up and took it with him.

He headed straight home and met his wife at the door. She said, “Kelly is really acting strangely.” He said, “How so?” His wife said, “She is acting like she is in a different world or something, I think we should take her to see a psychiatrist.” “Okay,” said the sheriff.

He went up to Kelly’s room and asked her where the dolly was that she had just gotten for her birthday. She said, “I don’t know daddy.”

“Is this the one?”, asked the sheriff. She said, “Yes it is!” “Kelly!, why was this at the scene where Mary had been killed?” , asked the sheriff. “I must have dropped it”, said Kelly.

The sheriff was shocked. Was his daughter involved in the killing of her best friend? “Why were you at the crime scene where Mary was killed?” , asked the sheriff.

Kelly wouldn’t respond, her mother asked Charles to let her take Kelly to the Dr. He agreed that she needed to see a psychiatrist.

It was almost Christmas time in FiftySix, Texas but with the murder of Mary still hanging on everyone’s mind, it would be hard to be very jolly this year.

  1. Paul, I’m enjoying your story, but there’s an anachronistic impossibility and a separate implausibility in this chapter. Crime fighters didn’t start incorporating DNA evidence in America until 1985, and it’s stretching credulity to think a small-town Texas sheriff would have access to or even think of using a child psychologist in 1952. I offer this as loving constructive criticism, not to be hurtful or mean. I look forward to your next chapter.
