Chapter 905 May Not Be Father And Daughter
“And then what? Did you hear from the police what was said between them?” Jared said quietly, pinching his nose.
Ben shook his head, “I'm sorry, Mr. Farrell, no. The policeman said when Connor Stockert arrived, he asked to see Alice
alone. The police couldn't let him get away with Alice, but Connor Stockert was also a big taxpayer. The police wouldn't say no to

see him come to her rescue? But Alice didn’t. When she saw Connor Stockert, she was horrified.”
Ben nodded, "Yeah, I double-checked, and the officer said she was scared. It was impossible for them, in their line of work,
