Savannah, my nephew Wes was a big Sherlock Holmes fan when he was younger (he loves English literature in general), and one of the big thrills of his life came when he got to visit Baker Street three years ago when he and his parents went to London. Bliss

Happy Friday everyone! This is so cool! Thank you so much Rob for helping me figure out how to change my avatar!! I never thought in a million years I could figure out how to do that! :adore: I can be taught! grinsmiley

When I saw the them was "Mystery/Detective", my mind went right to my dear Mulder & Scully! They're actually FBI agents, not technically detectives, but they're always trying to solve a mystery, only their 'mysteries' have to do with paranormal phenomena. This show ranks in my top 3 (Little House, Dr. Quinn and X-Files---I know, strange mix!).

So here's a clip of a 'typical' Mulder & Scully investigation:

*Hey Kathy, don't you feel like we're missing Peter at this particular party?! Anyone else remember Peter??? He used to come to the OLD old forum and Kathy & I always pictured him sitting in a library just like in today's banner, smoking a pipe and sitting in his wingback chair! Very Sherlock! Just a very intellectual guy! Wink

Hey gang! How are you all doing this morning?

The food here is great! Susie, love the cups! grinsmiley

Okay, well it looks like we have our first case everyone. So let's try and see if we can figure out who the killer is here.

"Cohan's House of Horrors" by Gary Sensenig
(Obtained from Mysterynet.com)



Who was the real-life killer in the haunted house? :think:


***** ***** ****** ***** ***** *****

Bob, the security guard, drew his gun, took a deep breath, and headed down a shadowy corridor full of plastic cobwebs, fake blood, and recorded screams. It was Bob's worst nightmare, a real-life killer on the loose in Cohan's Haunted House. At least one person was dead, and behind any one of these doors might lie another victim--or worse, the killer--waiting for another victim.

Someone, somewhere turned off the sound system and switched on the emergency lights. Bob tried the door on the left. Locked. Then the one on the right. Unlocked. He pushed it open two inches, until it hit something, something that moaned. Bob looked down and saw more blood. Real blood.

An hour later and the police had pieced together the basics. A total of two attacks and one murder. Jason Pierce, a 22-year-old employee, had been killed by an ax; definitely not one of the prop axes, but a real weapon. Alicia Cohan had been luckier. She, too, was bleeding from an ax attack. But when Bob found her, barely conscious behind the door, she was still alive.

"It could've been worse," Sergeant Greeley told his captain. "There were just a few employees in the haunted house. The attacker wasn't seen coming into the building--or leaving, for that matter. But he was seen." Greeley checked his notepad. "Medium height, in a ghost costume and a full-head rubber mask. We found the costume, the mask, and the ax not far from the second attack scene. The lab matched the blood samples. Jason's blood and Alicia's blood."

"Attacker not seen entering or leaving." The captain had a way of honing in on the essentials. "That's strange, given the limited access in that kind of attraction."

"Yes, sir. I'll interview the second victim, then talk to the others."

Alicia sat up in her hospital bed and spoke with effort. "We were just opening up. Jason and Millie and Todd were changing into their costumes. Dad was there, too. I turned on the sound system and the mood lights. I was checking the halls for garbage when I heard Todd shouting--something about a crazy person with an ax. A few seconds later, this thing came around the corner. I knew right away.

"I don't know why I ran into the dungeon room. There's no other exit. This maniac pushed open the door and started swinging. I fell to the floor, then I must've passed out. I guess he thought I was dead, 'cause the next thing I know, the security guard was waking me up. Was anyone else hurt?"

Alicia hadn't yet been told about her boyfriend's death.

Todd Wilkins seemed more concerned about Alicia than about the death of his best friend. "She's going to be all right," Greeley assured him. "Just some cuts and bruises. You saw the attack on Jason?"

"Part of it," said Todd. "I was changing into my ghoul costume when I heard something. I went into the next room and there was Jason, fighting off this guy in one of our ghost costumes and an old mask. The guy was swinging this ax, and Jason was trying to grab the ax and swing back. I tried to jump in, but the guy got in one last swing, then ran off down the hall. I shouted out a warning to the others, then went to help Jason. He was bleeding so much."

Millie Miller, like the others, was in her early 20s: short blonde hair, an athletic build and slightly taller than average. "I was in the locker room downstairs, changing into my witch's uniform. I guess I heard some screaming, but I thought it was the tape. I didn't realize anything was wrong until I came upstairs."

Sergeant Greeley nodded, then changed subjects. "I hear Alicia and Jason were engaged."

"Engaged? She wishes." Millie's laugh died in her throat. "I shouldn't be mean. Jason and I were together for years, ever since middle school. Things were getting a little stale and too serious, all at the same time. Jason said we should see other people for a while, just to get it out of our systems. That's all Alicia was, a little experiment. He told her that. He was coming back to me."

This was the third different story Greeley had heard. According to Alicia, they were happy, and Jason had already proposed. According to Todd, Alicia cried on his shoulder all the time. She was sick of Jason and ready to leave. And now Millie's variation on the old, familiar theme.

The sergeant caught up with Alicia's father at Cohan's Haunted House. A curious throng stood by the police barricades in front of the boardwalk attraction. "Thank God Alicia's okay." Then he chuckled. "I can't figure out if this will be good for business or bad."

"Are you the sole owner?" Greeley asked.

"Me and Alicia," said the sad-eyed, middle-aged man. "Alicia has an inheritance from her grandparents. I'm the trustee until she turns 30 or gets married. A chunk of her money went into Cohan's Haunted House. It's a good investment for her."

"Did you see or hear anything this morning? Anything at all?"

Cohan shook his head. "Bob and the kids were all there when I unlocked the doors. I locked up behind them, then went upstairs to the office. They often joked about a real killer getting loose in the haunted house."

"I'm not surprised."

"That ghost costume came from a storage closet. And the ax..."

"Was the stairwell fire ax."

Cohan sighed. "It doesn't look like an outsider, does it?"

Sergeant Greeley agreed. It was an inside job, all right. And he had a good idea which insider it was.


***** ***** ****** ***** ***** *****

Whom does Greeley suspect?

Suspects:
Jason Pierce
Millie Miller
Todd Wilkins
Alicia Cohan

*Say who you think it is and why.
