Barbara's Prodigal Son : Murder in the Meetinghouse

Barbara's Prodigal Son

by Shelley Kirilenko on 04/03/14

I met with Larry today, Barbara's son. Unlike Barbara, who presented as a calm yoga practitioner, Larry was nervous and twitchy. He kept avoiding eye contact, and seemed not to care about his own mother's funeral arrangements. Up until a few months ago, Larry had been overseas, drifting from one European cafe to another, burning through the family's money. Suddenly, he shows up back at home and reunites with his mother. Not long after he gets back, Barbara is dead. I can't help but wonder if that's a coincidence....
