One wore a chiefs badge and 1 showed him my credentials, issued by the Tucson police department and ex-j plained I was bodyguard of the! dead man. Frank Phajol, who hadj brought some valuable jewelry! here and had left it In the hotel | safe. "Looks as if you didn't do a very good job," the chief said, when he finally got his eyea oft the dead man. "I've already be«n reminded of that." The chief noticed the ransacked luggage. "Anybody take anything out of that?" "Not to my knowledge." "Well, looks like somebody sure crept up on Phajol when he wasn't looking. I always thought something like this would happen to him. I heard about him and the stuff he peddles/* The chief gave me a long look I said: "He was wearing a .45. Wonder if he's still got it." From where I stood 1 could see part of th« shoulder-holster anc reached over and removed the pistol. "Looks like he never had a chance to use it," commented the chief. "Maybe he had no reason to fear the man who killed him." The chief srncllcd the barrel. "It sure hasn't been fired." It was 4 o'clock in the afternoon before he had finished his prelim! tnary investigation. By thai time ' the coroner had arrived and the I body had been viewed and 1 moved. The investigation look place in a special dining room. The hotel clerk. Jimtnle Foster, was in some'thing of a dither, [t was the hotel's first murder, and the manager, who was off for Ihe day, couldn't be found. ' were myself, Pat Pha- jol, Teresa Jordan and Foster. The chief's name was Humbert. He had brought in a stenographer and another patrolman. He was an aid land, and he was no fool, 1 knew that I was in for trouble. "Yon say," Chief Humbert .said, 'that you left the tap room and went to Room 14, Phajol's room, Why?" 'I had some information for him." "What kind of information. 1 * "Such as the fact that Mr. Dominico was already in the hotel." "His daughter just said Miss Jordan had told her that and she'd told her dad." "But 1 didn't know that at the time," "You might have guessed it. The two girls were together, and you knew who Miss Jordan was. .The bartender told me that." "The bartender talks a lot." "You'd better talk some too." Humbert's eyes were very narrow "Better tell me what you really it to kill him?" 1 felt Pal's eyes upon me. For • moment I thought she was going to spill the beans about the diamonds being stolen, but she kept silent "All right. Chief. I could have killed him. I spoke to him • few minutes and went down to the desk clerk. I asked him if a certain person was checked in. and he said he was, Phajol sent me down to ask that question." "I've already talked privately to Jimmie. Why did Phajol want to know if Pete Gremcheck was In the hotel?" "Because Gremcheck was a competitor. He came here to sell Mr. Domuiico diamonds too." "About them diamonds. Td like to see them, Miss Phajol. 1 * I said quickly: "They're In th« hotel safe." T.TUMBERT was eyeing me spec- ij ulatively. M I wasn't talking to you, Dors am." He turned again to Pat "I'd like to se« them diamonds, Miss Phajol." I caught her eye. I shook my icad ever so slightly. For • moment I thought she was going to cross me up, but she said: "I prefer to leave them wher* they're safe. Now that all this has happened, I don't want to take any chances with them." "Mind telling me how mucil they was worth?" "About a hundred thousand." Humbert whistled, "Quite a lot f stones for him to be carrying!" Mike Dominico could not resist "Imagine meeting you in the library in summer! There won't be any boys here till after school starts!"
