Gil and his companions see evidence that Eddie Lofgren physically abuses his wife, Helen. Later they visit Carl Kershaw, former Monrovia High School principal at the time of Marcus Grover’s death and heard the tale of how Marcus and Eddie Lofgren’s daughter, Michelle, were growing sweet on each other at the high school prior to Marcus’ alleged suicide. Michelle disappeared afterwards apparently never to return to Monrovia. Gil and Sollie, in the meantime, hatched a plan to watch the Monrovia elevator for evidence someone was stealing grain. Watching from Sollie’s house while the superintendent was away, Gil spots a semi-truck pulling up out of the range of the elevator’s monitors and two men apparently stealing soybeans.
