Detective Burns knew that he could not afford to waste any time because innocent lives were at stake.
In truth, when the call was received, Burns had ignored it as a prank, since no sane person would call and indifferently declare three murders.
However, upon inquiry, Burns realized that three people had indeed been reported missing.
Heart thumping in his chest, Burns reached the beach, at the location specified by the caller.
As soon as he saw the two Ks etched in the sand, Burns teared up.
The buried, hacked bodies confirmed the return of the Krooked Killer.
