IN COLD BLOOD: Bobby Rupp

The boyfriend of Nancy Clutter, Bobby Rupp, became the first suspect.

p. 73:

Bobby walked to the Teacherage, the boarding house where Susan Kidwell, who had discovered the bodies, was staying. Susan was looking out her window when she saw “a wobbly figure headed her way. She went out on the porch to meet him. She said, I wanted so much to tell you. Bobby began to cry.”

Bobby’s younger brother, Larry, had shadowed Bobby all the way to the Teacherage. Now “Larry lingered at the edge of the . . . yard, hunched against a tree. He couldn’t ever remember seeing Bobby cry, and he didn’t want to, so he lowered his eyes.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
