Tom, Harry,

Tonight, as I was beginning to plan the mammoth task ahead, of interviewing all the residents on all 69 floors of Lake Point Tower, while doing a little research on the web, I ran across a tidbit of information:

* Lake Point Tower was intentionally designed so that it would be impossible for someone in any one apartment of the building to look into the window of any other apartment in the building. The lobe shapes are meant both to take maximum advantage of the views of lake, skyline, city, and also to insure the privacy of each of the residents. Which explains why we haven't run across any Rear Window type of eyewitnessing.

But also, and this is beside the point but just extremely bizarre.

Look at this aerial view of the building:


This is probably because it's late and I've been working on this thing for too long, but when I look at that picture, on the left side of the building I'm seeing an elongated woman's form, head in the top floors, breasts around floor twenty, belly at the building's base. A distinct laceration at the throat. Blood dripping down the collarbone. I see the murdered Regine on the building itself. Not that that's a clue, but strange, strange, strange.
