Red Night (by BettyHT)

SUMMARY:  A year late but here is the 2017 Once Upon a Midnight Dreary challenge to write a Gothic story in the style of Poe.  This is my entry for the 2018 Better Late Than Never challenge.  There’s murder and mayhem in Virginia City and the limited evidence points toward an unlikely suspect.  The gruesome deeds occur off scene for it is the aftermath that matters most.
