ANOTHER HEINOUS MURDERER BROUGHT TO JUSTICE

All the above thirteen heinous killers have been brought to justice by Inspector Thomlason on Mansion of Mystery. It is now time to close another case ("Statue of Death") and award our winners. If you have just tuned in, scroll down to the next blog and read part one. Then scroll back up for part two ...

The commercial is over. The "ONE THE AIR" sign just went on

Quiet in the studio please.

ANNOUNCER


And now back to our mystery.

INSPECTOR

Well, Beanary, you say you saw Rosewell throw the statue down the ravine and later found it the dark because of the sparks it made on the way down?

BEANARY

Right!

INSPECTOR

That’s a lie Beanary. You couldn’t possibly see that bronze statue falling in the dark.

BEANARY

I said I saw the sparks as the statue hit the rocks. I just followed the sparks and found the statue.

INSPECTOR

What Sparks Beanary. Bronze doesn’t give off sparks as it strikes hard objects.

BEANARY

Oh Oh!

INSPECTOR

Beanary. You killed your wife.

BEANARY

You’ll never take me alive …

SOUND: RUNNING

INSPECTOR

No Beanary! Come back!

SOUND: PLATE GLASS BREAKING – A FADING SCREAM – SOUND OF BODY BOUNCING OFF ROCKS

INSPECTOR

He fell down the ravine.

ROSEWELL

Poor chap.

INSPECTOR

Well, Rosewell, there’s no use you hanging around any longer.

ROSEWELL

Thank you Inspector.

INSPECTOR

By the way, Rosewell. Did you notice?

ROSEWELL

Notice what, Inspector?

INSPECTOR

Beanary didn’t spark either.

SOUND: MUSIC STING

Lights up please.

We have two winners. A lot of cliquers actually got it. But, as I had announced, only the first one and one other, picked at random, are the winners. Here are their Posts:

Hi Lloyd,

Mr. Beanary did the Murder. Anyone knows bronze does NOT SPARK so Mr. Beanary COULD NOT have seen the satuette go down the hill in the dark, so Mr. Beanary MUST have thrown the statuette HIMSELF!!

Thanks for the blog, Art

My guess is that the husband did it because he’s lying about the statue. Bronze, being a softer alloy would not have given off sparks.

ARE THESE CLIQUERS SMART OR WHAT?

Arthur and Willowtree win personally signed copies of "STUFF HAPpENS and then you fix it."

In order to deliver your prize, Art and Willowtree, I need your mailing address. Send it to me in an email to Lloyd@stuffhappens.net and I will get your book out to you ... pronto.

Thanks to all who entered the contest. Though I have 128 more episodes that didn't make the blog cut, I am saving them for broadcast. They are SOOOOOOOOOO much better when you can listen to them.

Are we having fun yet?

Stay tuned.

Lloyd, these mysteries have been fun. I hope you can "sneak" one in the blog once in a while. Congrats on the new radio deal.

Maybe you could make some new ones where the football star, the one-client attorney, the partying heiress, the network executive AND the butler all did it.

Works for me!
