Deputy Jack Kendall is living his dream in the Missoula County Sheriff's Department, which recently appointed him to the position of deputy coroner after a number of years in the department. He's a by-the-book kind of law enforcement officer who believes in following the rules.
Deputy Kendall, please tell us about this case.
Timmie Campbell made it special. I never should have broken up with her a year ago. And I should have corrected that mistake...before she stumbled upon the body of her father. Investigating a murder when you're involved with the victim's daughter is a dicey situation.
What made this case hard to solve?
Take one guess. Yep. Timmie Campbell. She kept poking her nose in where it didn't belong and flying across the country to dig up clues and suspects. Then, she almost got herself killed.
Did anyone outside the sheriff's department help you solve the case?
Do I have to answer? (Sigh) I guess by not answering, you've already figured it out.
Has this case affected your personal life in any way?
It sure has. Not only is Timmie giving me a heck of a time about setting a wedding date, she's planning on giving Nero Wolfe a run for his money.
Thank you, Deputy Kendall, for talking with us today. Please extend our sympathy to Timmie at the loss of her father. Keep us informed of any upcoming wedding plans.
