Suezenne Fordham No... It was his way out He was alcoholic and fortified himself with a half botthe of a fine Bourbon I was going to use in Baked Beans!!! I am happy he didnt take me, too....Fortunately he left a lengthy note in an envelop on his computer... It took a while to actually see it And when the police read the note they stopped questioning me.... I thought he had fallen on a rake that caused the hole in his neck.... cant believe how naive I was... He hadnever taken that shotgun out of the bag even to clean it to my knowlledge!!!
