Catching a Criminal (StoryADay)

For the last few months, the killer M.A. struck the wealthy people living in Oceanview, killing them. It didn’t matter if they were actors, businessmen, or sports athletes; they all died the same way. The money they had was taken from their families and given to charity.

As the news about the killings increased, many people began to wonder what was going on. Was there no end to the nightmare gripping the city? Was the killer ever going to get caught?

Chas Myers frowned as he poured over the case involving the death of acting superstar Warren Maysonet. The man had been partying with friends when the killer struck him down. luckily, one of his friends had filmed the whole scene and turned it into the police, hoping to catch the killer before he or she struck again.

“I still can’t believe i’m doing this,” Chas said to Jarvis Monroe as they studied the file. “What is going on here? Why is M.A. targeting the rich and stealing the money and jewelry that should have gone to their families?”

“I don’t know,” said Jarvis. “But what I do know is that either the killer is a twisted version of Robin Hood or they have it out for rich people. We must find a way to stop them before they strike again. And this time, we shall make no mistakes.”

Chas frowned, knowing that Monica Dawson was still after him for the murder of her daughter, Erica. three months before, she had shot at him as he was attending a local basketball game. he wasn’t hurt, but the man sitting behind him died. After that incident, Chas had no choice but to arrest Jesse Kendrick for the murder of Erica Dawson. At present, the man was serving a 10-year sentence for his crime.

“Well, I’ve learned my lesson from what I failed to do before,” he said, “But how will I know that M.A. won’t strike again while we’re out?”

“Or they will,” said Jarvis. “They always make a terrible mistake, a mistake that leads to their eventual downfall. I would count on that, if nothing else.”

Chas nodded, but this time, he wasn’t about to take any chances.


Margo Althea Puckett had just made her 174th donation to the God’s Army Shelter. Michele Pederson (Who ran the shelter) said to her, “Thank you for your donation.”

“It’s not me who’s making this particular donation,” said Margo. “You should be thanking Warren Maysonet. After all, he just willed his entire fortune to this organization.”

“Well, that’s impressive of him,” said Jerry Mathison, “but did you know that he has donated millions of dollars from his films to the Kimberly Marshall Foundation to Prevent Cruelty to Disabled People?”

“Really?” said Margo.

“Yes,” said Michele. “Warren always believed that disabled people deserved a chance to live in society instead of being locked away.”

“I see,” said Margo as Chas and Jarvis stood behind her. She had no idea that within the next few minutes, her own life would be changed forever…
