Read When His Eyes Opened By Simple Silence Chapter 124
The news of Cassandra’s d***h came out around 7 a.m. the next morning.
She had jumped out of the window of the hotel room she was staying in and had died upon impact.
The police retrieved Avery’s contact information from identification that Cassandra had left in her hotel room.
Jack was d**d and Wanda was abroad.
The only person who could identify Cassandra’s body was Avery.
Avery was still half asleep when she answered the call.
Even after she had hung up, she thought she was dreaming.
It was not until she snapped out of her trance and checked her phone’s call history that she realized she was not in a dream.
She leaped out of bed, skipped breakfast, and rushed to the hotel where the incident had taken place.
“She had jumped, Sir. When we opened the door, she ran to the window and jumped before we could do anything. It was obvious that she was ridden with guilt.”
Elliot’s subordinate reported the events surrounding Cassandra’s d***h to him.
Elliot took a sip of coffee, then ordered coldly, “Keep an eye on Cole Foster.”
Cassandra and Cole were close.
Cassandra wanting Elliot d**d meant that Cole had the same idea in his head.
It was yet to be determined if Cassandra was the mastermind behind the assassination attempt, after all.
She could be nothing but a scapegoat, but she still deserved to d*e.
The police had closed off the hotel when Avery arrived.
She followed a police officer to the crime scene.
“Miss Tate, our initial investigation identified the victim as your sister, Cassandra Tate. However, we will still need a positive identification from you,” said the officer. “She died upon impact after the fall around five in the morning.”
Avery’s heart raced frantically in her chest as she felt like an invisible force was strangling her.
It was not long until they arrived where Cassandra’s body was.
The thick, metallic smell of blood permeated the air.
Avery’s hand shot up to cover her nose as she stared at the bloodstains on the ground.
The officer pulled back the white sheet covering Cassandra’s body, revealing the b****y, unrecognizable face underneath it.
Avery immediately began to vomit violently.
It was impossible for her to identify that mangled mess of flesh and blood.
Throughout her time in medical school, she had dissected small animals and human corpses…
However, this was the first time she had come face to face with such a d********d body!
“Are you alright, Miss Tate?” asked the officer as he helped Avery up.
Avery’s chest rose and fell at a rapid pace.
“I’m sorry… I can’t tell… Just do a DNA test or something!”
“We can do that, but it will take some time…”
“I can’t tell… I really can’t…”
Avery took another glance at Cassandra’s mangled face, and tears began to stream down her cheeks.
Her emotions were a mess.
This was not just a simple matter of losing a so-called family member.
Her relationship with Cassandra had always been unpleasant.
However, not being fond of a person and seeing their lifeless body were two completely different things.
The police moved Cassandra’s body away.
They also took away all of the personal items that she left in her hotel room.
Avery sat in a squad car and sobbed.
Why would Cassandra k**l herself?
Did she get into a fight with Cole?
