THE MAYOR IS MISSING

A Murder Mystery Party Written and Hosted by Yours Truly

Welcome to Redville: a charming New England town where everyone knows everyone.

 

Feel free to ignore the cult-like meetings at the bowling alley, the secret backrooms at the grocery store, the political scandal, and the rumors of a paranormal force lurking in the woods.

 

And above all, feel free to ignore the fact that the mayor has vanished.

 

Because Redville is simply a town where nothing bad ever happens.

THE BREAKING NEWS:

If you're going to stick around, we might as well get acquainted with one another, shouldn't we?

What's that? The FBI is here? They think one of us did it? Nonsense. They don't even have any evidence! ...What's that? They have lots of evidence? Fine. I suppose we should go through all of this.

Reading of the Mysterious Note

The Sheriff is Involved?

Well. Now that we've gone through all of that, we ought to settle this once and for all, don't you think? Let's all say who we think did it.

THE VERDICT:

1 PERSON

thought Betsy Maggleson, the victim's widow, was the killer. Her affair with the sheriff certainly didn't leave her innocent, but she was no killer..

3 PEOPLE

thought Penny Nellie, the grocery store owner with a lot to hide, killed the mayor to usurp his power. But even she had no good reason to lay hands on the mayor...

2 PEOPLE

thought Burt Bricks, the enigmatic handyman was to blame. He did have the means to sneak into the mayor's office, but his intentions were pure...

5 PEOPLE

correctly sleuthed their way to naming Molly Moleskin as the murderer.

This former partner of the mayor attempted to detain him when he became irrationally afraid of losing power to Robert Smithers. The mayor doubled down in his role as a cult leader and began planning a human sacrifice. Molly tried to stop him, but things turned ugly, and she killed him out of self defense.

Oh, bother. This was all so troubling. You must forgive the interruptions. Next time I invite you over, murder won't be involved. And that's a promise! Now let's eat!
