Nabbing was child’s play. In a nursery with surveillance cameras. He was not even trying to hide it. Like he wanted to be caught.
“ Is it you pretty nurse? Honey, tell them. Tell them what I did”. His laughter made the nurse heave. Told them she did.

“Caleb. He’s not crazy, can’t you see?”
“ Austin, let it go. We got him confess, isn’t that our job?” Caleb enunciated the last word harder.
