From Joe's writing

His head spinning with theories – God, how he enjoyed working on something challenging for a change, like his old days in Chicago – the Sheriff decided to pay a visit to the hospital and hopefully talk to whoever had been Spencer’s nurse on the night in question. If the boy had left the hospital, the nurse would know; and if Jenny McGee had been lying about going to see her sick friend, maybe someone would have picked up on that as well. Relishing the challenge of once again breaking a case, Ruskin crammed himself into his cruiser and headed for the hospital.
