Chapter Five: The Coburn Mystery [Original Draft]

In Pescadero there was no agreement on whether Wally was innocent or guilty but everybody had something to say about it.

At the coroner’s hearing, Joe Quilla testified, “…I used to be afraid him….’they’ said Wally would do anything…” He was so scared that on the occasion he slept over at the Coburn house, he not only locked the door, he secured it with a rope.

Some said Wally could become violent when “crossed,” and suggested that Sarah had “crossed” him by failing to get up when he wanted her to do something for him.

If Wally was innocent, would he ever be able to tell anyone?
