JOE, an (eccentric but suspicious) elderly homeless man with tufts of white hair sticking straight out from his head, a long beard,and bright but dirty clothes,is digging through the trashcan, as though searching for something. His hand runs along the outside rim and he pulls out a wrinkled letter. JOE gazes at the letter, and when his eyes reach the bottom, his eyes widen and he lets out a cackling laugh, dancing a little jig.

(Shifting uncomfortably.)
She don't come 'round here no more.

Of course I can read! I've been around long enough to learn, haven't I? It's just my eyesight's gotten so bad in my old age and I can't afford glasses. It's so blurry... but I know Isabelle Lockley's handwriting when I see it. That's her signature right there!

Trust me, I sure as hell want her safe, too. That woman was always kind to me, and not many people are. She'd come and talk to me after The Takin'.

SHERiff thomas
We're dealing with a missing minor, sir. I think it might put her parents at rest at least knowing she's safe. Right now some of our evidence points toward a kidnapping, so I'm not letting go of this investigation anytime soon.

JOE
No I- what paper? I ain't got nothin' to tell you, Sheriff. Mighty fast to accusin', huh? Haven't you thought maybe the reason she's missin' is cause she don't wanna be found?

SHERiff thomas
Well, Joe, it would be very helpful for this case if you could give me some information. What was on that paper, for starters. You hid it rather quickly when I walked up. That have something to do with Isabelle?

JOE is fully crying at this point, and looks faint.

Sheriff thomas
Hurry, boys. I want a red alert looking for Isabelle Lockley in the Marvin Woods neighborhood. Her suicide letter was just found in Deering Park. Keep a special eye on drug stores and buildings. Careful, don't scare her off. If she's still alive, we'll be dealing with a very depressed and nervous girl. Otherwise, it's as we feared and this is a body search.

SHERIFF THOMAS holds up a finger, indicating JOE to be quiet, and holds up a walkie talkie to his mouth. There's a burst of static.

I-I just found it, now. Why? You ain't gotta make such a fuss.

It is Joe, but I'm afraid this isn't a "just fine" letter. When did she leave this for you?

Can you not read it yourself?

joe
Well, sure. Isa wrote 'n told me she was safe. We always taped our notes to the outside rim of the trashcan, and I'd get that boy Ron over at the gas station to read it to me.
