Mr. Worrell.
Well, see, I didn't see his face, I just saw the back of his head and it was full in the back. I don't know what the front looked like. But it was full in the back.
Mr. Specter.
What clothes did the man have on?
Mr. Worrell.
Dark, like a jacket like that.

It was dark in color. I don't know whether it was blue, black, or brown, but it was dark, and he had light pants. And that is all I can say on his clothes, except his coat was open and kind of flapping back in the breeze when he was running.
Mr. Specter.

Mr. Worrell.
Not a thing.
