truck out front that says “Doyle Hargraves Construction” on it. Doyle said besides sending the police, you might wanna send an ambulance or a “hearst”. I’ll

“Karl: My daddy came out to the shed and got me. He said, “Here, take this and throw it away”, and he handed me a towel with something or another in it. Well
I started for that barrel and I opened up the towel ’cause there was a noise. Something a-moving around in there. The towel was all bloody-like all around it
there. It was a lil’ ol’ baby not no bigger than a squirrel.”

stories you and Mama told me ain’t in there. You ought not done that to your boy. I studied on killing you. Studied on it quite a bit. But I reckon there
ain’t no need for it if all you’re gonna do is sit there in that chair. You’ll be dead soon enough and the world ‘ll be shut of ya. You ought not killed my
little brother, he should’ve had a chance to grow up. He woulda had fun some time.
