He introduced himself as Emile Corday, with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.
"This isn't a laughing matter, Mr. Dean," Corday said sternly.
Corday glowered at her.
Corday asked, directing his question to Dean.
Corday nodded to the others who slowly left the room until he and Fitzgerald were the only two officers remaining.
Corday looked at Fred, seemed to consider asking him to leave and then decided he'd best leave well enough alone.
Corday is the only one doing any investigating and he's the only one I'm inviting to stay.
Fitzgerald started to say something but Corday grimaced, let out a long sigh and nodded for the younger detective to leave.
Corday asked the question as casually as if he was inquiring about the weather.
"You know," Corday said.
A myriad of emotions flooded over Dean as Corday spoke.
Corday just shrugged and began asking questions about Dean's background.
Dean assumed Corday already knew most of the answers.
Corday never volunteered any information and when Dean asked him outright if Shipton was still alive, the officer ignored the question and changed the subject.
Corday gave Dean an I-don't-believe-you look.
Corday rose, and asked, not quite casually enough.
Of all the questions Corday had asked, for some reason, this one made Dean's heart do an extra skip.
Corday would write me up for just talking to you.
Besides, you don't report to Corday or those guys—he's State, you're County.
"Corday asked me that directly," Dean said.
Corday doesn't know any of the players.
Someone out there is a killer and if Corday has his head up his ass over your guilt, somebody needs to be taking a hard look at what really happened.
There was a knock on the door and before Dean could respond, Corday entered.
Corday wasn't a happy camper.
"Don't give me any shit that you don't have it," Corday added.

Andre's sombre rage against the course of events found vent in the line on the Maenads who mutilated the king's Swiss Guard, and in the Ode d Charlotte Corday congratulating France that "Un scelerat de moins rampe dans cette fange."
He ordered her to be admitted, asked her the names of the deputies then at Caen, and, after writing their names, said, "They shall be soon guillotined," when the young girl, whose name was Charlotte Corday, stabbed him to the heart.
The assassination of Marat by Charlotte Corday only served to increase the unpopularity of the Girondists and to seal their fate.
