Michael MacKenzie’s life changed the night he shot his rifle into the air. Never would he have thought he would kill a man, that man being Jenna Ward’s father Charlie Ward. Later he hears a news report about the mysterious murder of Charlie Ward two days ago and knows instantly who had done it. He knew confessing would be the right thing to do but he did not want to get caught. After he heard that the ballistics team had narrowed it down to four blocks and were going door to door asking questions he knew he had to do something, and fast. Michael later snuck out of the house grabbed a shovel, some PVC pipe, and his Winchester and went outside to bury the rifle. Even though he went through all that trouble to not get caught he finally realizes what he must do.
