There's been an accident.

An accident? No, no, it's

just that time of the month.

No, I mean by the tunnel,

there was a car wreck.

Was anybody hurt?

Were you expecting anybody last night?

No. Why?

I, I was just trying to establish a time

and if you were expecting...

No, I mean, why would I

be expecting somebody?

Are you a cop?

I'm Abe Holt, nice to meet you.

Who was in the car?

We haven't IDed the body yet.

My husband's asleep inside, do

you want me to wake him up?

No, no, that's OK.

You sure?

Yeah, I'm sure, I,

are you gonna be okay?



It was nice to meet you.


You scared me, little fellow.

Where you going?

Me? I'm going

to town.

Can I come, too?

You? You want

a ride to town?

Thor! Breakfast!

Your mom's calling.

How long does it take to get to Heaven?

Do cats get to go?

You gotta go.

Here, go.


What's the verdict?


He was frozen by fire.

For all I know, this could've

been the devil's grandmother.

What about dental records?

You serious?

Are there any broken bones?

He crashed into a tunnel. He broke...

I mean, before.

Before what?

Like when he was younger.

I'm not his family doctor.

Can't you take

some X-rays?

With what?

What do you two know about this, Fred?



They moved here a while ago.

Why you so interested in Fred?

You heard what the doctor said.

The body could be anybody.


Okay, you're saying it's not Kelvin.

Well, who do you think it is?

Are you saying it's Fred?


It's Kelvin's car. We found

his driver's license.

Yeah. Exactly.

Wait... then how the hell did

Fred end up dead in Kelvin's car?



Well, that means Isold must be in on it?

Somebody's got to collect the money.

So where's Kelvin, then?

That's downright crazy.

Is it?
