He has to be out there, caught in the seaweed at the bottom of Chesapeake Bay, with the fish and crabs having a party, getting as bloated as the fat Wassermann twin lying on the slab at the Norfolk morgue.
The word is someone did in Wassermann over on the Eastern Shore and the tide carried him out in the middle of the Chesapeake.
While Dean was tactful enough not to mention it, it had, however, taken two weeks for Billie Wassermann to come home to port.
