Both were drinking cortee. Van Horn IWM a big man with a thick mane at Mack hair graying over his ••n. He had a heavy ugly face «nd very sharp black eyes behind Ithkk-leiued (lasses, I had met fctra itveral times, but the rounger man was a stranger. van Horn, waved a hand as I apptoached their table and spoke b hj« guttural voice, "Hello, Ben- Mtt. Thli h my assistant, Dr. Jerry Martingale." 1 abook handi with Dr. Muttngale, I decided that he was iyoiMif enough to be just out of AiedicaJ Khool and would be working tor the_ state long enough *• Mve enough money for instrument*, drugs and office reni before starting hii own practice. Van Horn was employed by the Commission on a consulting basis and was one ot the two or three really brilliant pathologist in the •tat*. Dr. Martingale looked more like a sophomore track star than a doctor; he was tall and tangy, his blond hair was clipped «hort in the approved Ivy League fashion, and hit clothes were Ivy League, too—Cray flannel «ult, button-down collar, regimental ctriped tie. He had a round snub- nosed face, friendly brown eyes and even teeth. I sat down, declined Dr. Van Horn's offer to order me iome coffee, and said, "You're early. I didn't look for you until around 5." Van Horn smiled. When he milled, hii face was no longer ugly. "We finished early over in Mohawk County, ind Jerry it • fast driver. Tell me a little about this work we in to do thii afternoon. 1 h«v* tone over the tl%, of eountf but 1 would like to hear 'f from you." "hknia U Finiik OiLxuB," 1 said. "A three-year history of silicosis. Total disability. Then death, suddenly — coronary occlusion. A Dr. Jarrett, of this county, signed the death certificate. Naturally, the state did not pay the death award to the widow at the time, but now the investigation' department feels that the cause of death should be definitely established, even though death occurred, six months ago. 'There is the possibility of future litigation and claims . . ." • "I understand that," Van Horn broke in impatiently. "You want me to establish definitely the cause of death. I will do that. Do you have the widow's permission?" "Ye», sir. ,1 mailed H to Mr. O'Connor." "I would like to speak to the widow, if possible, before we start. Sometimes a talk with a witness save* me time—symptoms, you know. I take It she was present when her husband died?" "Yes," I said, "but you can't talk to her. I have just come from her funeral." "How sad. Was it sudden?" "Very. A bullet from a target rifle struck her in the heart region while the was working in her kitchen." • .••'• HE sighed heavily. "These senseleM accidents, they are tragic." . "Yes," I said, thinking that 1 would tell him the complete story after the autopsy. There was no point/ In contusing him now. He lifted a hand. "Never mind, 1 understand there wit some difficulty about <aclUUe>, and that we must work *t the burial site?" "That's right. I'm sorry, Doctor." He wived a hand. "tt'doH not matter The necr'snry H^-ur -"•' ortuu CAQ i* [tiuavcU auu u.vuii| to my laboratory. Has the body been exhumed?" "Not yet, but they're digging. We should .be able to start shortly, though. Whenever you're ready, I'll take you out to the cemetery." "Good. One more cup of coffee." The waitress brought our coffee. I lit a cigaret and said to Van Horn, "D6~~you know Dr. Jarrett?" "Not personally. I know hit record." Suddenly I remembered my promise to Lucy Dorn, and I said, "Doctor, would you object to another person watching you work?" He lilted his heavy shoulder*. "No—just so they do not interfere." "She wont She writes mystery novels and wants some firsthand dope on an autopsy, so that she can write about on* accurately." "Let her come. She win probably be sick after the 9rst incision." "Thank you, Doctor. Excuse me a moment." I left the« and entered the lobby. Mrs. Don came from the kitchen. • •• • TJELLO, Mr. Bennett." She smiled, but her eye* were worried. "Hello. Is Lucy arour.d?" "She's upstairs, I think. Sh« had a headache." "Could 1 call her?" "Certainly." She nodded st the phone on the desk and turned to the switchboard. I picked up the phone. Lucy Dom'i voice answered and before I could ipeak she said sharply, "Dick, there is no u«e in your calling me any more. I told you that I won't 10 away with you. I—" "This is Jim Bennett." "Oh. I—1 thought It was Dick calling again." - "I jtut wanted to ten you OiM we're going out to the cemetery to do the autopsy pretty soon, I'll wail'for you, If you like," "Oh, y«."
