“Dr. Dave?  You mind staying here?”

“What are you, Loco?” David looked at Jake with an incredulous expression.  “This place is haunted, and there is a murderer running loose.  I’m not staying down in the crazy mortuary o’ doom by myself.”

“It’s a crime scene,” Jake said.

“It’s creepy and scary and no doesn’t quite cover it.”

Just then Rosa started babbling to him in rapid Spanish again. 

Jake sighed, and shook his head.  “Alright.  Fine.  Dr. Dave, you bring the box.  You two go on up ahead of us.  We’ll lock the door behind us.  And we’ll all go to Mr. Prunella’s office.  Is that clear?”

“Yes,” Dr. Dave and Michael chorused

“Good.”  Jake shook his head.  It looked like he might have to deputize  Rachel again.  Except she was currently in La La land, courtesy Dr. Dave’s sedative.  And since Dr. Dave was already deputized, Average was probably next on the list.

He sighed in frustration.  Was he going to have to put the whole town on the police force just so that he could this case solved and get married?
