Somnium Daemon (UN-D-6937)
The Detective wasted no time in interviewing the gathered spectators. Almost immediately his attention was drawn to the likeness of one man, whom he recognised as also being present at the Birmingham murders.
Confident he had found his prime suspect, the Detective arrested Lee Merrywale, when the man became uncooperative during routine questioning.
Wooldridge was convinced that there was something unique about this man, and arranged for the suspect to be detained and observed for the maximum time allowed.
Though he continued to be unhelpful in the enquiry, it became apparent that Merrywale did indeed possess some extraordinary abilities. The suspect did not sleep, nor seemed to require it. Wooldridge tried to match his alertness watching him carefully from the safety of the adjoining observation room for two days.
