Sgt. Joe Friday:
Let's go, Markell. You're going downtown.
Ricky Markell: I ain't gonna talk to you there, either.
Sgt. Joe Friday: Well now, you don't have to. Shelton copped out - told me the whole story.He said you stabbed the guy and shot him three times, once in the right temple.

The trailer-park manager tells Friday and Gannon that Don Negler is currently living in the park. They get to his space--which is vacant. The tenant in the adjoining space says Negler had left maybe fifteen minutes before. This is highly unlikely; it would take him quite a long time to disconnect the utilities and unhook the trailer from its mounting in the space, and hook it up to his car--and he would have to do it without attracting the manager's attention. On top of that, he would be doing it in a pouring rain--and at night.
