The Sheriff gave Bob the side eye.  ‘So Sam living here?  Or was he just visiting?  Seems weird he was tinkering in your house.’

‘Sam was just visiting.  I’ve known Sam for over 20 years.  I had no problem with him being on his own in the house.  He liked to mess with stuff.  I never thought he would make something that would explode.  I kinda like my house the way it was.’

‘I think it would be best if we go to the station to finish this up.’

Bob grabbed a notebook and headed out to the Sheriff’s car.

Sheriff Thompson showed up maybe 15 minutes later.  He was in his own car.  He drove a classic 1974 Pontiac Trans AM.  It was a perfect car for him.  All muscle, no brain.

Bob and the Sheriff had clashed before.  Mostly when they were drinking at the local watering hole/restaurant/post office.  Bob liked baseball and the Sherriff liked football.  It was mostly playful banter but Bob didn’t like the Sherriff.  He knew the Sheriff could be a prick.

‘So what happened here Bob?’

‘Sheriff I don’t rightly know.  I was in the house when I heard a loud explosion.’

The paramedics made their way in to the garage.  They commented on how it smelled of sulphur and whiskey.  Maybe Bob had poured too much whiskey into Sam’s mouth?  Bob also hadn’t smelled the sulphur.  Bob has anosmia, the inability to smell.  That ability has made life both a blessing and curse.

The paramedics found Sam on the floor.  He had bleed out despite Bob’s attempt to save him.  They kept quiet while they brought out the cadaver bag but didn’t put Sam in it.  They knew enough to wait for the cops.  Sheriff Thompson could be a prickly one.
