Keep digging Seth, that ring’s down there somewhere. A crazy aunt gave it to Mel years ago. We thought it was just a tatty piece of costume jewellery.
If I’m honest I’ve no idea why she wore it, probably something to do with her lack of taste.
Anyway, seems we were wrong, turns out the thing is real and could be worth up to a quarter of a million pounds.
Once you’ve found the body poke around a bit and look for the right arm.
It was on the middle finger of her right hand when I buried the bitch.
