NaNoWriMo, Day 16

On a completely unrelated subject, one of my favorite television programs is the old murder mystery series, Columbo. But, to borrow the phrasing of the main character, there’s one little thing that bothers me.

Let me describe the scenario. Person A has murdered Person B. Person C figures out that A did it. Does C alert the authorities? No. This is what happens.
C: “I know you killed B, probably to avoid paying B a lot of money, or because B was a threat to you. . I promise not to reveal this to anyone if you pay me a lot of money. While you consider my offer, I will now go to a secluded place where I will be absolutely alone. Also, I point out that I have not told anyone else of my suspicions.
A: *murders C*.

This happens several times during the course of the series. I don’t understand it. If I figured out that someone I knew had murdered someone else, I think the best thing to do would be to call the police. Even if, for instance, I didn’t want to do that, the LAST thing I would do would be to indicate to the murderer that I knew what he had done, that no one else knew I knew, and that I would be in a convenient spot for the murderer to kill me. This is just common sense, people.
