Welcome to the Murder-Mystery, She Wrote contest! To celebrate the launch of Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove, now available for download on PC, we are having a contest! All you have to do is solve the murder-mystery case below. A keen eye and sharp deduction skills will be necessary to crack this puzzle! You could win great Murder, She Wrote memorabilia, like DVD sets and books!
From left to right: Bryce, Kira, Patrick, and Jamar
“Hurray, everyone, it’s the launch party!” said Kira. Being a producer of Murder, She Wrote 2, it’s understandable that she should be more excited than the others in attendance. But something’s not quite right here. Bryce, the Office Manager looks wistfully off into the distance, his mind clearly elsewhere. Associate Producer Patrick glares scornfully at Kira’s glee, unmistakably unhappy. Project Manager Jamar attends the party dutifully, counting down the seconds until he can politely excuse himself to leave.
“Hmm… I wonder where Eddie is,” Kira says to herself. “He should be celebrating just as much as us, being the game’s Marketing Manager, and the key to our future success! Where could he be…? It’s a mystery!”
Fortunately, all Kira’s experience working on Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove had prepared her perfectly for this moment…to investigate the mystery of the missing Marketing Manager! “Have no fear everyone, I’m on the case! Good thing I have my trusty magnifying glass to scour the office. We should probably start at Eddie’s desk.”
Upon arriving at Eddie’s desk, a grisly sight awaited. “Oh no!” Kira cried. “Who could have done this, and why?” The missing person case had suddenly become a murder! “It looks like our sweet Marketing Manager was stabbed! And his desk looks strangely messy… I know Eddie liked to keep it neat. I wonder if these could be clues to his murder!”
First Suspect – Bryce, the Office Manager
Kira: Bryce, did you murder Eddie?
Bryce: No way, why would I want to kill him? You got nothing on me!
Kira: I’m not so sure… I bet there is something here that can tie you to the scene!
Second Suspect – Patrick, the Associate Producer
Kira: Patrick, you seemed very unhappy during the party. Was it because you murdered Eddie?
Patrick: Okay, look. I admit I wasn’t myself, but I didn’t kill Eddie! Why would I? I have no reason to.
Kira: Hmm, I wonder… Surely there is something you could have gained by Eddie’s death.
Third Suspect – Jamar, the Project Manager
Kira: Let me see if I can spot any clues on Jamar’s de—
Jamar: Kira, get off my desk! I’m trying to do some real work!
Kira: Seems like a pretty convenient excuse to me! Besides, with all those Jason dolls, your desk was getting too creepy for me hang around any longer.
“Well, I just can’t figure out whodunit at all,” said Kira. She pondered over the clues she had seen at everyone’s desks. “There must be something that connects the murderer to the crime scene, and surely some motive! But what could it be?”
Is it Bryce, who seemed too defensive?
Is it Patrick, who seemed too shady?
Or is it Jamar, who seemed too dismissive?
