To go from Marble's notion of abandonment to the destruction of a child
requires a leap in logic that leaves me in the dust. I can only conclude
that . . . hell, I don't know what to think. You must not have read the SS

the child. Fact.

would have known **exactly** where to find her. He didn't know. That's why
he said: "Maybe I should've gone looking for Moly."
