“Dirty Dan Murder Mystery Weekend”
April 24 @ 10:00 am – April 25 @ 1:30 pm
Thank you to all of the gumshoes that came out and tried to solve The Murder of the Marathon Runner.
After two days of sleuthing, it was discovered that the murderer was none other than…….
Her confession statement: “Yes, I killed him, I had to, and I promised my generational family that anyone who was a relative of William “Billy” Leach would have to die. He was a good friend of Dan Harris. Together they took a boat over to Asia in the late 1800’s and brought back immigrants to work in the gold mines and the fish canneries. My great- grandfather like so many did not want to leave his country but he was forced to leave, he died in one of the refugee camps at a young age. Now the ruthless great grand-child of William Billy Leach is gone, goodbye Bill Leach, I made sure you died right next to grandfather’s friend Dan Harris.”
You can watch the arrest. Flora wasn’t happy, but she didn’t deny it!
Mark your calendar for our next Murder Mystery – April 23 and 24, 2022.
