Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Twenty-Eight

We never had a inquest in town before, but Ole Man Roper died in ‘suspicious circumstances’ so it had to be done. 

Once the jury was swore in, the coroner hustled proceedings along.

Doc Baker and one of the redneck deputies give evidence. Then the sober-faced jurymen showed hands and the coroner give the verdict.

Me and Pa and Theo went home to Ma.

“That ole man musta had powerful long arms.” Pa chuckled as he sat down to Ma’s chicken dumplings, “Seems like he suicided his own self through the back of the head with a ten gauge.”
