“I want the team to finish up, then we’ll take custody of Mrs. Sullivan. Does she have next of kin?” Detective Sutherland asked.
“I’d have to check my paperwork. I only know of the son. Let me do that for you.” Frank pulled out his phone.
“You can find that on your phone?”
“I’ve got a secure site where information can be downloaded.” He fiddled and typed a few minutes, reading rapidly through the files. “I found a granddaughter, apparently her only grandchild. Give me your number and I’ll text it to you.”
“Sure.” She rattled off her number. “Why do I get the impression you could have found that out without even asking me?”
“It’s more polite to ask,” he replied, neither confirming nor denying her accusation.
