Tom went to bed at half past nine. He waited for Huck’s meow, and at eleven o’clock it came. He and Huck walked out of the village with the dead cat.
When the boys got there, they put the dead cat on a grave and sat down behind some trees.
Three men moved quietly through the graveyard and came nearer to the trees.
They were graverobbers. They stopped at Hoss Williams’ grave and Injun Joe and Muff Potter began to dig. Ten minutes later the grave was open.
Muff Potter told the doctor they needed five dollars more to take the body to his house.
The doctor said no.
Then Injun Joe took the doctor’s arm, but suddenly the doctor hit him, and Injun Joe fell to the ground.
Then Muff Potter jumped on the doctor and the two men began to fight. Injun Joe got up and he had Muff Potter’s knife in his hand. He moved behind to the doctor, and then the doctor hit Muff Potter on the head. Muff fell to the ground, and at the same time the knife in Injun Joe’s hand went into the doctor’s back, and he didn’t move again.
Injun Joe put the knife into Muff Potter’s hand. Muff Potter didn’t know what happened. He drank whiskey tonight and he couldn’t remember anything. Injun Joe told him he killed the doctor and he would not say a word to anyone. Then he asked Muff Potter to get away quickly.
After Muff Potter went away, Joe put Potter’s knife next to the doctor’s body, and then he left the graveyard, too.
The next day the Sheriff’s men found the doctor’s body and Muff Potter’s knife in the graveyard.
That night Muff came to the graveyard to get his knife, but Sheriff’s men were there. They took Muff to the jail, and Muff sat for four weeks and waited for his trial.
By the way, a day five years ago, Injun Joe came to the doctor’s house and asked for something to eat. But the doctor gave nothing to him. Nothing.
Tom called Sheriff and he told the truth, but how could Sheriff know that Tom was telling the truth.
If you were Sheriff, what would you do?
