The vultures are circling.

Ramblings of an old man.

The large brown and white St. Bernard had left his blood stained paw prints trailing the marble porch tiles.
The police decided at this time to call for assistance before entering the house.
Reinforcements arrived and the area around the house was cordoned off.
On entering the house the grim discovery was made, the body of a fully clothed female was found at the bottom of the spiral staircase.
Carefully picking their steps they ascended the stairs after further checking the ground floor, they arrived at the master bedroom door which was slightly ajar.
On entering they discovered the remains of a naked blood stained female lying partially covered on the queen sized bed.
House to house investigations were then conducted, during the course of these investigations it was established that both victims were observed in a nearby park earlier accompanied by a male companion who was later seen escorting the ladies back to this particular house. Which was the residence of the lady found downstairs.
Ramsey Shepperd immigrated to Mexico where he married his long time pen pal Romany Schults she headed up an I.T. company where he was employed as programmer, Ramsey had a twin brother back in Ireland, Bryan, neither had seen eye to eye for a number of years.
Ramsey and Romany returned to Ireland and set up their own business in the Southern part of the country.
Both Ramsey and Romany were classed as workaholics who mixed in different circles to that of his brother.
Ramsey’s St. Bernard it was said was his best friend they could be seen regularly strolling in the park, while to unwind Romany enjoyed nothing better than her game of chess within her close circle of friends.
One of Romany’s friends Rebecca was known to have many men friends none of whom she saw on a regular basis.
Her own marriage had broken down a couple of years before with her husband moving away to make a new home with his partner.

Any semblance of truth is totally accidental in relation to people’s names, work environs or location.
If and it’s a big if I am inspired further there will be more but I would not hold my breath.

    1. Thanks Joe, if I knew where it came from I might have an idea where it should go and how to go about putting meat on the bones so to speak instead of contemplating the delete button?
