Stella didn't have to wait long to learn that the gun found in the wreckage of Allen's car had fired the shot that killed Jeff Barnes. The report from Ballistics was the first thing she read when she logged on the following morning.
As she studied the report, she realized it raised more questions than it answered.
'What are you reading?' said Brian, placing a coffee on her desk.
'Ballistics' report on the gun found in Allen's car.'
'What does it say?'
'He had a brand new Glock 19.'
'Did they match it with the round taken from the victim?'
'So, case closed, then.' Brian took the lid off his coffee and sat down.
'I'm not so sure, Brian. We might have solved the murder but I think this opens another can of worms.'
'What do you mean?'
'Think about it. How did he get a Glock? They're on the prohibited list.'
