罪恶有痕 14

 

刘明天问罗元, 最近这几天有没有开过水库的大门?

罗元长得人高马大,脸上看起来却十分地稚气。他摸着脑袋努力思考了一下。

“没有开过。这两道门没事儿我们都锁着的。去年一年大概也就开过五六次吧。你们是不是怀疑有人躲在这儿啊?我们水库不对外开放,闲人一般进不来,这里面都是开阔地,小树林也很稀疏, 就是有人想躲这儿也没地方藏啊! 你们到底要找什么?”罗元连珠炮似的说了一通。

刘明天和赵凯峰交换了眼色,罗元的态度很主动,但似乎过于主动了。刘明天想,那我就给他透露些情况,看他有什么反应。

“是这样,我们正在寻找一辆白色捷达车的车主。他已经失踪好几天了。这是他和他朋友的照片,你见过他们吗?”

老闻也凑过来看刘明天手上的照片。但两人都摇头表示没见过。

刘明天又拿出两张打印纸,指着上面的画像让他们辨认。老闻认真得看了半天,失望地摇了摇头。而罗元则马上开始问问题。

“这两个人犯什么事儿了?”

罪惡有痕 14

 

劉明天問羅元, 最近這幾天有沒有開過水庫的大門?

羅元長得人高馬大,臉上看起來卻十分地稚氣。他摸著腦袋努力思考了一下。

“沒有開過。這兩道門沒事兒我們都鎖著的。去年一年大概也就開過五六次吧。你們是不是懷疑有人躲在這兒啊?我們水庫不對外開放,閑人一般進不來,這裏面都是開闊地,小樹林也很稀疏, 就是有人想躲這兒也沒地方藏啊! 你們到底要找什麼?”羅元連珠炮似的說了一通。

劉明天和趙凱峰交換了眼色,羅元的態度很主動,但似乎過於主動了。劉明天想,那我就給他透露些情況,看他有什麼反應。

“是這樣,我們正在尋找一輛白色捷達車的車主。他已經失蹤好幾天了。這是他和他朋友的照片,你見過他們嗎?”

老聞也湊過來看劉明天手上的照片。但兩人都搖頭表示沒見過。

劉明天又拿出兩張打印紙,指著上面的畫像讓他們辨認。老聞認真得看了半天,失望地搖了搖頭。而羅元則馬上開始問問題。

“這兩個人犯什麼事兒了?”

 

[English translation]

Traces of Sin  14

Liu Mingtian asked Luo Yuan whether the gates of the reservoir were ever opened lately?

Luo Yuan was tall and strong. However his face looked childish. He scratched his head and thought hard for a while.

“No. We usually keep both gates locked. They were open only five or six times in previous year. Do you suspect that someone is hiding here? The reservoir is not open to public, no one is allowed to come in other than staff members. It’s a open place, even the ravine is sparse. There’s no spot secluded enough to hide a person here! What exactly you’re looking for?” Luo Yuan talked in a fast fashion.

Liu Mingtian and Zhao Kaifeng exchanged a meaningful glance. The attitude of Luo Yuan was quite active, a bit too active though. Liu Mingtian thought that he should reveal more information to him to get more reaction.

“The situation is like this. We are looking for the owner of a white Jetta. He had been missing for a couple of days. Here are photos of him and his friend. Have you ever seen them before?”

Lao Wen came close to check the photos too. Yet the two of them shook their heads and said that they hadn’t seen any of them.

Liu Mingtian then took out two pieces of print paper and let them to identify the portraits on the paper.
Lao Wen looked carefully for a while, but shook his head disappointedly in the end. Luo Yuan, instead, started to ask questions right away.

“What crime did these two guys commit?”
