Penny stared at the body and dashed out of her place and down to Abby's apartment. After Abby got Penny calmed down, they returned to Penny's place, but as they approached the door, they heard a sound inside, so they turned and dashed back to Abby's apartment. A few minutes later, they entered Penny's apartment and found that the body had disappeared, so they returned to Abby's place and called the police.
