Response: In this chapter, Chief Gillespie interviews a man at the hotel. The man said that their was a guy named Kaufmann that came into the hotel at around the time of the murder. The man had a stain on his pants and his only excuse was that, "He was unwise while eating his cherry pie." That could explain for the red stuff on his pants. This man was later released on account of not being guilty. Then they caught another suspect by the name of Mr. Gottschalk. He was in town, passing by at around the time of the murder. He has no sufficient alibi, as far as we know, to prove this though. He was in the town of Wells because he was on his way to the Cape Kennedy Centre. He decided to take his car because he was going to go on a week long vacation with his wife, Mrs. Gottschalk. He was supposedly driving in the night because he didn't want to drive in the extreme heat of the day so he decided to go in the cooler part of the day, night time. In the end, the fact of the matter was that the police didn't have him there by the law, he wasn't made clear of that in the beginning of the interview. One thing that I have noticed is that the author always leaves a big clue at the end of each chapter. That's good stuff, because now I am going to have my eyes peeled when I get to ends of chapters.

No one expected what would come next. In the basement, the emergency generators flooded, and the smell of rotting corpses from the morgue grew, getting stronger with the heat. In the lobby, people broke into the vending machines, stealing and selling the food. We didn’t have any clean water either, so showers soon became Purell sanitation wipes, and toilets became buckets to throw out the window. During the day, my parents were busy, so Rafa and I painted “SOS” on bed sheets and hung them outside. At night, we played cards, and I silently sat next to a nurse who thought about the dog she had left at home. No one knew if our homes or friends were okay, nor when we’d be rescued, but I didn’t cry. I was in survival mode.
