Police Lieutenant Briansky peered through the mirrored glass at the old man in the interview room. He asked “So this Mr. Von Rothbart has admitted to holding the thirteen missing girls captive?”
“Yes sir” said Sergeant Sadova.
“And you say that we can not press charges?” Briansky queried.
“We have searched his property thoroughly and found no trace of the girls.” Sadova replied. He chucked. “Von Rothbard claims to have used magical powers to turn the missing girls to swans. We did find thirteen swans.”
“Well, there's no law against owning livestock.” Briansky said. “Go ahead and cut him loose.”
