“Eeny meeny miny mo…Mary, Susie or Jimmy Joe… ” He secretly snickered at the rhyme but was careful not to let his excitement show.
He scanned his prey searching for his Mary, Susie or Jimmy Joe. Finally his eyes landed upon the redhead who had strayed from his mom, and he knew that this would be the one.

The officer called headquarters…”We Got him…balloon man will kidnap and hurt no more”!
