Drew picked up a pen and a small notebook.
“Where is it?” Drew asked.
“Up on the overlook off Mulholland, above the Hollywood Bowl. You know where it is?”
“Yeah, the Jerome C. Daniel Overlook. I’ve been up there.”
On the first page of the notebook, Drew wrote the date and location of the scene.
“Anything else I should know?” Drew asked.
“You now know what I know,” Walsh said. “As I said, the Hollywood watch commander described it to me as a possible murder-suicide.”
“Do they know who the victims are?”
“Patrol is working on it. Maybe they’ll have that by the time you get there.”
Walsh asked if Drew would notify his partner of the call out. Drew said he’d take care of it.
“Okay, Howie, get up there and see what’s what, then call me and let me know.”
“You staying up?”
“No, just call and wake me up. Everyone else does.”
Drew found it ironic his supervisor had complained about getting woken up to a person she had routinely woken up throughout their relationship.
“Roger that,” Drew said.
He hung up and called Cecelia Ruiz, his new partner. Ruiz was a D1 who had transferred into the West Bureau homicide squad after five years in patrol at Wilshire Division. They were still getting acquainted, but Drew felt sure the bonding would happen. It always did.
