Murder? Here? Never!
In the small, sleepy town of Stupeville, who would have ever expected a murder? It was all the good folk of Stupeville could talk about. Things like that just didn’t happen where they lived.
A fine, upstanding , pillar of virtue bludgeoned to death in his own home? Surely not. Yet it was true and how sad the Town’s people were.
The Deputy needed answers. But, the Town’s folk didn’t take too kindly to being questioned: After all, they are a community, and one of high morality, no-one here would do such a thing.
“An outsider did it” was the united word: Because in Stupeville, how could suspicion be cast on another? They were all good, respectable and righteous people…
As time passed by, they never did find who butchered that poor man: But, one thing nonetheless remained… Stupeville was still the most idyllic place in the world to live!
