Where Does Your Grandmother Live?

One image I can’t get out of my mind. It’s from a case I handled when I was still new to homicide.

The guy had brutally rapped and killed a several older women. He was very smug about it when I brought him in here to be questioned. NO remorse at all.

He would find out the addresses of vulnerable old women and then attack them in their homes.

I was questioning him trying to get a statement when he turned to me and said, “Where does your grandmother live?”

I lost it.

There he was challenging me with this threatening remark. And I had to do something, so I jumped on the guy. I just lost it.

It took four other detectives to pull me off the guy. Now I can can still see his face crystal clear anytime I close my eyes.
