If you found someone’s diary on the school bus, would you read it, or would you turn it in to the school’s lost and found unopened? [Wait for response:] What if you worked at the school’s lost in found? And nobody was ever looking…
Duncan had a summer job with the Toronto Subway. He worked in the always-cold “Lost and Found” deep underground the city. It was pretty boring. Pretty much unsupervised, so… Duncan read the diary. It was pretty sicko. Some guy writing about his fantasies about stalking girls. Hurting them. He seemed obsessed with this one pretty girl who rode the Toronto subway.
Slowly Duncan realized that this sicko wasn’t just fantasizing. He was going to kill the girl… and the last diary entry was only a couple weeks old! How far would you go to stop a serial killer?
