I think Bone doesn't tell the sheriff what happened to her because for so long she's been keeping it hidden and hasn't been talking about it that she can't just start talking about it right away.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
