The police dogs followed Ronette's trail back to the boxcar.  Laura's half
of the heart was there.  I haven't heard any definitive proof that Laura
was there.  I can't remember if the police have gotten the forensics back
on the boxcar yet.  Somehow, though, that heart got there.  If Laura

With regards to the heart, Laura's half was on a gold chain.  James' half
was on a leather thong.  The police said they wanted to know who had the
