Continued from A Detective Story - Part 1, and A Detective Story - Part 2...
Earlier this week, I posted about a crime that was committed in my living room. An investigation took place, and finally yesterday came a break in the case. I received this e-mail...
I was reading your detective blog and was wondering if there was a reward for turning in and conviction of the felon?
I was intrigued. The e-mail came from a friend who is temporarily housing one of the suspects. Did she have proof that the suspect she is housing was guilty? I quickly offered a very large reward of $0.25 for any information leading to the identification of the suspect. She went on to send the following:
I hate to be a rat but I caught Duke trying to eat my wall while I was watching TV. Luckily I heard him and caught him in the act. I had to tell him twice to leave the wall alone. I know it will be circumstantial evidence but......if I were on a jury I would convict Duke.
Bev the snitch
Thank you Bev. I know you will use the reward money wisely. Perhaps you can put it into a fund for wall repairs.
Now about the other suspects. All survellience of the crime scene has been halted, and each suspect - I mean foster pet - is once again free to roam the house within the limits allowed. As for Duke - well, I will be sure to warn anyone who wants to adopt him to watch him around walls. And in the meantime, I think Bev's house is an excellent place for him to stay.
Those of you who tried to blame the cats (I believe it was only dog visitors who did so) should now apologize to the cats. Those of you who defended the cats or Ziggy have been vindicated! Anyone who has some demolition they need done on a wall should contact Duke directly.
