Chapter 266: Serena, at least we are friends.
In the absence of evidence, Serena could not believe Sam’s story, so she continued to ask, “Since you did not kill him, how do you know so many details? Your footprints were found in the victim’s home, and the twine that strangled the victim was also found in your home.”
Footprints and hemp rope are all important evidence that the case- handling organs convicted Sam at that time.
Nora stopped crying and answered for Sam
“Serena, 18 years ago, on our street, every family had a pair of Jiefang brand cloth shoes, not only Xu Wei, but also that hemp rope, which was used to tie things to relatives during the New Year and holidays.”
Serena looked at Xu Wei
“Is that what your mother said?”
Serena wrote it down again, and then asked again
“Why did you pass by the victim’s house that night?”
“That night, I didn’t pass by the victim’s house at all. I was drinking with a few friends in an abandoned factory building, and I had an alibi. I passed by her door the next morning, and because the door was open, I just looked inside out of curiosity.” It was this glance that got into trouble.
After a day of investigation, the people of the investigation agency got a response from the neighbors, saying that they saw Sam poking around at the door of the victim’s house early in the morning, sneaky and
suspicious, and the people of the investigation agency locked the target on

“Since that’s the case, when the people from the investigation agency asked you where you were at the time of the incident, why didn’t you say it in the first place, but hesitated?”
“I said it later, because the night before, I was in the abandoned factory with a few friends to discuss stealing cables. My friends all went to steal them, but I didn’t go because I was afraid. I got up so carly the next day because I was worried that they would have an accident and didn’t sleep all night, so I got up early in the morning to listen.”
“When I was arrested, I thought I was asking about stealing cables, so I naturally couldn’t betray my friends, so I didn’t make it clear. Later, when I found out that it was a murder case, I said it, but no one believed me.”
He hesitated and refused to say where he went on the night of the crime. The next day, he sneaked around the door of the victim’s house. In addition, there were shoes and hemp ropes of the same style at the crime scene at home, all of which led to his greatest suspicion.
Even after 18 years, Sam is still very excited about the scene at that time
“I was wronged, they kept interrogating me, beating me, and forcing me to confess. If I didn’t confess to killing someone, I wouldn’t be alive today. But now the real murderer, Tom, has come out to confess his crime, why can’t he let me out!” After being in prison for a long time, Sam looked dull, and he didn’t dare to look at Serena when answering the question.
Nora was crying and comforting
“Son, Mom will definitely save you… Serena will help us.”
Coming out of prison, Nora’s emotions have been very excited. In the past few years, she has been visiting, asking a lawyer, and looking for media reports to pay attention. In the end, nothing has happened. Now even the
real murderer Tom has appeared, but her son has been locked in prison. In prison, there is still nowhere to seek redress. Serena is her and her son’s life–saving straw
The case needed to be taken step by step, and it was not easy for the court to retry it first. If it was retried first, it would be tantamount to indirectly admitting that there was torture and forced confession 18 years ago, and also indirectly admitting that the court decided that it was a wrong case, which was a great challenge to their credibility. No one on the court side was willing to take the lead to retry the case, and they had been playing the ball to deal with Nora, and the lawyers in the middle changed one after another.
When Nora came out of prison again, she went straight to the courthouse, lying upright on the steps outside the courthouse, crying a few times at first, and then she couldn’t howl anymore and just lay down.
Serena couldn’t pull her or persuade her, but she was afraid that she would get heatstroke if she lay down like this, so she called Karen too. After standing in the hot sun for a long time, and she was wearing black clothes, which were very heat–absorbing, her whole body was sweating, and the hair on her head was also wet with sweat.
At this moment, a shadow on her head came over to block the scorching sun for her, and a bottle of ice mineral water with cool air was handed to
She looked up a little and saw Penn standing beside her at an unknown time, holding a sun umbrella and mineral water in his hand, with a calm expression
, “Drink some water, don’t get heatstroke.”
His tone of voice was so ordinary that it was as if the two had never been apart for several years.
When Serena heard his familiar voice, her cars buzzed, and she
Chapter 266. Serena, at least we are frends
subconsciously avoided his umbrella, preferring to stand in the hot sun.
Penn felt distressed when he saw her now, and he didn’t want to force her to continue handing her the water.
She treated him like air, not answering or looking at him.
“Serena, at least we’re still friends.”
He had loved each other so much. Even if he couldn’t become a lover, he could at least care about her as a friend. He had regretted the three years he had disappeared.
Serena has been very calm because of his words suddenly raised a wave of hatred.
When he decided to leave after the divorce, it was impossible to be a friend; when her mother was sick, it was the hardest for her to ask him for help and she found that she was blocked, it was impossible to be a friend; when the children were sick, she held them alone. It is impossible to be friends when the two children are staying up day and night in the hospital.
She looked at Penn and thought, why, you want to disappear, disappear. you want to come back, how can there be such a good thing in the world.
She took a deep breath to calm herself
, “Mr. Humphery, I’m working, please don’t disturb.”
All the resentment was hidden in her heart and she didn’t want to say a word to him.
Of course, there was another reason. She didn’t want anyone in the Humphery Family to know about their existence. She just wanted to stay away from them.
Therefore, anyone involved in the matter of children was her imaginary
Karen, who had been taking care of Nora, suddenly exclaimed
On the ground, Nora’s face was pale, her forehead was covered in sweat, and she felt nauseous from time to time. But even if she was stubborn and couldn’t get up, Karen couldn’t help her.
Hearing this, Penn came over one step earlier than Serena, and naturally handed the sun umbrella to Karen to block Nora, and then helped Nora to drink the water in his hand.
He was strong, and Nora was dizzy. It was useless to go on a hunger strike. Penn directly helped her up and gave her a mouthful of cold water.
