How does the placement of transition sentences affects the meaning/tone of a piece?

Example:> Finally, I began questioning the kid. What was her name? Where were> her parents? And most important, what was she doing outside in this> horrible weather? She replied to none of that. In fact, she didn’t> utter a single word; all she did was to stare at me with her uncanny> eyes. **Luckily, I obtained that information by other means.**> > That night, after the kid had gone to sleep, I found a letter in her> backpack.> ________________________> Finally, I began questioning the kid.
