This is the Diary of Francis Kelley. My eleven-year journey as a Police Detective in small-town America. From Petty crime to Homicide, I write of the emotional experience from the perspective of a new Police Officer-trainee to that of an experienced Detective and Medicolegal Death Investigator. The naive individual who started in 1991 as a Police Dispatcher for $4.60 an hour and left in 2002, as the Sergeant of Detectives, were two very different people; forever changed from one-too-many "peeks behind the curtain of humanity" and the emotional cost exacted as a result of each case.
