Understanding this phenomenon, Ruick let the good times effervesce at the cost of radio discipline for exactly two minutes. Anna saw him look at his watch timing it. Then he cut it off with orders. Since he and Anna were closest to where Rory waited with the hikers, they would cut cross-country from West Flattop to Flattop Trail, bypassing Fifty Mountain Camp, and collect their truant Earthwatcher. Joan and Gary were to hike to Fifty Mountain and tell Mr. and Mrs. Van Slyke that Rory had been found unhurt.

Rain was light and the wind calm, but visibility on Flattop had dwindled to nothing. Joan radioed Ruick, who headed up the team, and told him they had nothing. He advised them to eat, rest, stay warm and meet the team on West Flattop Trail around noon, when horses and searchers should be arriving. "Rory's father and stepmother are camped at Fifty Mountain," Joan said into the radio. " "We'll work on it," Ruick promised and Joan left it at that. They followed directions, eating as much as they could, resting, then hiking down to the trail.

Logic dictated that the murder had been committed on or near West Flattop, and fairly near where the body had been dumped. In August, with visitation at its peak, the killer would have wished to get the body out of sight as quickly as possible. The burn covered both sides of West Flattop but for the small patch of green bordering the trail above where the body was found. It was an educated guess that the kill had occurred in the burn zone, where the perpetrator had little or no cover. He'd carried the victim till he found enough undergrowth he could hide in.
