Colonel Mustard did it! Or, maybe it was Mrs. Peacock?
The culprit could also be someone from Victoria, that's how it will have to be at Victoria's first Downtown Victoria Murder Mystery: Case of the Murdered Paparazzi.
Between Thursday and Saturday, registered self-proclaimed crime scene investigators will try to solve the downtown mystery.
Growing up, I've read and re-read "And Then There Were None," or "Ten Little Indians," by Agatha Christie.
Every time I read it, it was like new, even though I knew exactly who did it. (I'm not going to spoil the ending).
This year's downtown murder mystery promises to be a different, interactive and exciting event that is bound to challenge the wits of eventgoers-turned-detectives.
The event will get you out of the house and into the streets of downtown, viewing all that the blossoming historic area has to offer.
I imagine it would be like solving a mystery back in the early 1900s, with all the historic homes, streets and landscape.
So, rather than vegging out in front of "CSI," why not put your crime-solving skills to the test? Though this is the first year, I'm sure it will definitely be interesting to work in teams or solo to figure out the killer.
Do you have what it takes to solve the mystery?
