Killer Pies for Christmas

I already gave my statement to the police but I'm telling you now, Clara didn't kill nobody! I've known her for years - even before her husband died. She's not a killer. Who could even think such a thing?

I supply everything Clara and her niece, Maggie, need to keep Pie in the Sky running. Fresh fruit for the insides, and vegetable shortening for crust. Cream and chocolate. Now even coffee for Maggie's espresso machine.
That man, Donald Wickerson, dying right here in the middle of the pie shop - bad business. Nothing to do with Clara or Maggie. I heard Clara was dating that Wickerson fella but I read in the newspaper that he's no good. Killed his wife or something. Why was he even out on the street? I swear criminals got it better than the rest of us.
I wasn't at the pie shop when Wickerson was killed. I just thought the police should hear from someone on Clara's side, you know? She's one of my best clients. She pays on time and always has a piece of pie and a smile for me. A kind heart - that's what she is.
Maggie too. I remember her growing up here and working at the pie shop with her aunt and uncle. Never saw a sweeter girl, know what I mean? Now she's back in Durham, what a difference at the pie shop.

I hope the holidays aren't ruined for them by all this mess. I hope Pie in the Sky stays open too. Geez! I'd hate to lose the place. Best coffee and pie in the city!
