Microfiction Draft: Hot Shot
A killer murders his ex-girlfriend. He confesses to an attorney. The lawyer wants to benefit from the high profile case. The lawyer sets out looking for someone else to hang the crime on. The lawyer’s PI manufactures evidence to cast suspicion on another man, not enough to get him convicted, but enough to create reasonable doubt. The lawyer wins the trial and the killer goes free. He then kills another woman. He tells his attorney of it before anyone else finds out, and the attorney has his PI help the killer cover up the crime. The killer and the PI cremate the body and scatter the ashes. Then the PI gives the killer a hot shot of heroin, arranges him so that it looks like an accidental overdose and reveals to the killer in his last moments that the attorney didn't want to keep cleaning up his client’s messes, to protect the lawyer’s own reputation.
