MISSING – ONE ZOMBIE LADY

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS WOMAN??
The police were just here. Apparently Zombie Lady’s son FINALLY got around to calling them to report that his mother hadn’t shown up last Tuesday as he had expected and, you know, gee whiz, could they go over to her house and make sure she was OK?
I’m beginning to think that he’s as mentally deficient as his mother is. I mean, if my mother lived hundreds of miles away and was due to come in ON A BUS on a specific day at a specific time, I think it would take me LESS THAN A FUCKING WEEK AND A HALF to call someone and say “She didn’t show!”
But he finally did call and the police officer came over to ask me if I knew the lady next door. At first I was going to say “Zombie Lady?” then thought better of it and said “Ummm….yes, I know her – I have permission to go in her house and check it out – she left last week for New York City and I’ve been watching the place for her.” The police officer said “well, that’s why we are here – her son called and said she never showed up.” The police officer then asked if I had a key to her house and I said “No, the door is unlocked – but be careful going in and be aware that there are no lights and no heat – and you can’t get upstairs.”
The officer went in, looked around and came back out, telling someone who lives in her coat collar that she couldn’t make entry to the upper floor. (Ya think? I’ll bet she couldn’t make entry to the bathroom, either.)
The officer asked me when zombie lady left, how she left, if I saw her leave, what she was wearing, what she had with her and what she looks like. I told the officer I had a picture of her – and the officer asked me if I had a copy, and I told her it was on my computer, but that I could print it out, which I did. I also explained to the officer that although zombie lady purports to have money, she didn’t have access to any of that money when she left, and this was one of the reasons she had gone to the city, to resolve her banking issues. I said that perhaps if her son knew which bank she deals with, he could call and see if she had, indeed, been there to resolve her issues with them.
The officer left here headed to the bus station with the picture in hand to see if anyone remembered her getting on the bus.
And now I’m very, very worried about zombie lady.
I immediately called Val to tell her about the visit from the police. Once Val was assured that the police weren’t here to arrest us for breaking in (we didn’t break in – I had permission to be there), she was as worried as I am. Although she did say that zombie lady could be somewhere between Albany and New York City in some hospital, having cut off her ear.
And the thing that really pissed me off about the visit from the police was the surprise the officer showed when I said there was no heat or lights at zombie lady’s house, and hadn’t been since Spring. They’ve been here no less than 3 times to do safety checks on her – the APS has been here, code enforcement has been here, and I’ve made tons of other calls, and this officer was completely unaware that anyone was even living in the house. Grrrrrr…..
But, now everyone needs to pray for the zombie lady and hope that she’s OK somewhere. I worry that something happened on the Con Bus, or that she couldn’t get any money in the city and she’s living in a doorway over a heater grate somewhere and doesn’t have the money to get a ticket home. Or that someone bopped her over the head on her way to the bus here and she’s floating in the Salmon River.
And I’m worried that I am probably the last person to see her alive and now my fingerprints are all over her house and all over her mail. And fucking Paul said right in front of the police officer “Well, do you have her son’s phone number, Kim? Because if something happened to her, he’s probably going to want to sell the house.” Stupid fuck. Jack McCoy would have a field day with this kind of circumstantial evidence.
