105 Give Up

No one paid attention to Connor’s desperate roar at

that moment.

When the police played the recording, they had already convinced the reporters.

The police continued. “Of course, this recording alone cannot prove that he’s the murderer. We also found his discarded phone, and after restoring its settings, we uncovered several recordings of the victim from that day that matched what Miss Olsen had said earlier. This is enough to prove that he had killed the victim before Miss Olsen arrived and tried to frame her. We

have sufficient evidence to make an arrest, and here is

the warrant!”

After the police showed the warrant, the reporters in front of them immediately dispersed.

The police swiftly apprehended Connor and left quickly.

The live broadcast ended there.

The Horton family.

The sudden turn of events caught everyone off guard.

Lewis looked at Jake with a grave expression. “Miss Olsen isn’t the murderer, and I hope I won’t hear that word from you again!”

Jake fell silent.

Just then, the butler suddenly entered the room. “Sir, there are police officers outside. They want Miss Olsen to go to the police station and assist with the

investigation.””

Upon hearing this, Jake found his courage again. “Uncle, even if she isn’t the murderer, she’s still connected to this case! It’s unlucky for someone to keep going to the police station. It’s not suitable for her to stay in the Horton residence.”

But as soon as he finished speaking, the butler coughed and said sheepishly “They’re looking for…

Miss Isla Olsen.”

Jake Horton was shocked.

He looked at Isla, baffled, and asked, “What does this case have to do with you? Why do they want you

there?!”

Isla’s face turned pale; she was disoriented and stumbled, staring blankly at Jake. “Jake, I, I…”

Her mind was full of Connor and she couldn’t bring herself to comfort Jake immediately.

Keira, observing the scene, said with a smile, “Don’t be nervous. The police want to see Isla probably for the case investigation. In that recording just now, the person talking to Connor on the phone was Isla, right? Isla, after Connor committed the murder, why did he call you?”

Isla swallowed nervously, clenched her fists, and upon seeing Jake’s confused gaze, she rushed to explain, “I… I don’t know. I felt sorry for him before and gave him some money, and he just clung to me…”

Keira looked down. “So, you’re saying that you gave the recording to the police. After all, only you would have a recording of your conversation, right?”

Isla wanted to deny it, but Keira took a step closer,

looking straight into her eyes, “After all, if it wasn’t you, why would you cover for him?”

O

Isla realized she had been backed into a corner.

After all, she couldn’t provide a better explanation!

She clenched her fists and could only nod, “…Yes, it

was me.”

“No wonder the police came to ask for your

cooperation in the investigation. When you get to the station, you’ll certainly tell the police the truth, won’t you?”

Isla was speechless

She took a deep breath and turned around sheepishly, preparing to follow the butler out when Keira suddenly looked at Jake, “Aren’t you going with her?”

Jake was taken aback.

Keira raised an eyebrow, “She’s your fiancée. Don’t y care about her? After all, the police station is an

ominous place.”

Provoked by her words, Jake immediately went to Isla Olsen’s side. “I’ll go with you!”

Isla was shocked.

She didn’t need him there!

But Jake Horton didn’t give her the chance to refuse and followed her out the door.

Inside the police station.

In the interrogation room, a police officer asked, “Please tell us, what exactly is your relationship with

Connor?”

Isla explained, “I have no relationship with him. Back in junior high, I saw him being ostracized by classmates

and felt pity for him, so I helped him with a few

lessons, but then he clung to me, calling me frequently

over the years…”

The police officer asked, “After he committed murder he called you first. Why didn’t you encourage him to

turn himself in?”

With Jake standing right beside her, Isla dared not speak carelessly and continued to distance herself from the incident. “I never imagined he would go so far as to kill his own father. I was truly shocked. It’s the first time in my life I’ve heard of someone committing

murder and than truing to frame comoona also I’ve

been blaming myself this whole time. I urged him to turn himself in, but he wouldn’t listen and even threatened to kill me if I spoke out. Comrade officer, can you please not inform him of our conversation today? I’m afraid he’ll retaliate against me after he’s released.”

“Of course, we’ll protect the witness.”

The police officer then said, “So the anonymous recording we received was actually sent by you, right?”

Isla paused for a moment, then admitted with reluctance. “Yes, I wanted to do something to help

solve the case…”

“After receiving the recording you sent, we were able to identify the killer and promptly find his discarded cell phone. Otherwise, a few more days and a little rain would have ruined the phone and all the incriminating audio files inside it, making us lose the most effective

evidence…”

The police officer interviewing Isla stood up. “On behalf of the police station, I thank you for providing the evidence!”

Isla waved her hand. “It’s nothing. It’s what any citizen

should do…”

The police officer pointed toward the door. “Good, thank you for your cooperation. I’ll escort you out.”

Isla and Jake walked out together, and on the way, she asked, “Sir, you won’t tell Connor about our conversation, will you? He’s very gloomy, and his gaze is really intimidating, so I hope you can take protective measures. I don’t want him to find out.”

The police officer nodded. “I assure you. He won’t be

told.”

Isla left the police station looking uneasy.

After walking out of the police station, she looked back again.

It was already dark outside. The entrance was brig ly lit, and the inside was just as bright with many off moving about, taking notes and working diligently.

She wondered in which interrogation room Connor

could be…

However, Isla tightened her jaw, took a deep breath, and a hint of scorn flashed through her eyes..

That was for the best. Sending Connor Hill away would

mean he could no longer pester her!

“What are you thinking about? Get in the car!”

The sound of Jake’s voice brought Isla back to her

senses.

She lowered her head. “Jake, I’m a bit scared of being retaliated against…”

“Don’t worry. I’m here.”

Jake protected her and led her to the car.

They didn’t see that on the third floor of the police station, in a room with the lights off, Connor stood at the window, gazing down with a sinister look.

“Snap!”

The light was turned on in the room.

Keira, Lewis, and Holly were sitting in the room watching him.

Keira tapped the table. “You heard the interrogation just now, right? You also saw what’s happening

downstairs, so, do you have something you want to say to me?”
