"Finally, the case went cold and was put into the 'freezer' - the
storage-area for cold case-files - where it lingered for _dekkids_."

"We have a homicide here in [Reynoldsburg, in] central Ohio only about once
every five years, on _the_ average."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
