April Murder Mystery:
Murder, She Rhymed – April 27th, 5:30 PM
By October 24, 1928, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, a thriving city on the Canadian prairie, had earned its reputation as a “Little Chicago.” Not only was it filled with vice and corruption, but it was also a place where “Scarface” Al Capone himself called the shots.
And one individual proved to be a particular threat to the “status quo” . . .
Chief of Police Wally Wilson’s cook and housekeeper, Mary Kelly, eavesdropped on conversations that could embarrass some very important people in Moose Jaw. When her employment was abruptly terminated, she began roaming the streets of the city, writing limericks and seeking work.
If loose lips sink ships, then Kelly’s boat may have sprung a serious leak. For, when she has a bit too much to drink at Mamie’s Saloon, she’s been known to tell tantalizing tales the Mounties would eagerly gobble up as evidence that can be used to clean up a city.
What fate awaits her? Who would line up to permanently silence her loose lyrics? What do these resonant rhymes reveal, and how far is Kelly willing to go to expose “The Boss’s” influence on Moose Jaw’s public officials? Are cryptic clues woven into her vitriolic verses? All will soon be neatly resolved – and revealed.

June Murder Mystery:
The Curse of the Comet – June 8th, 5:30 PM
It is September 17, 1945. The world is free from war for the first time in nearly a decade.
Last night, the comet Hopkay made its first appearance in the heavens in over 400 years. The celestial messenger was last seen in 1545, the year that the native Central American chief Hopkay met an untimely demise. His people, the Intecs, interred him in a tomb which they said must be sacrosanct for all time.
A little over 10 years ago, archeologist Myron Mason found that tomb and robbed it of its treasures. An inscription on the wall of the crypt proclaimed that whoever desecrated the spot would be cursed. When the comet reappeared, said the writing, the chief’s revenge would be carried out.
Gathering to disprove the ancient curse an in a carnival mood, Mason and a few acquaintances awaited the event at his brother’s Beverly Hills home. They laughed and talked into the night, peering through telescopes to catch the first glimpse of the comet. As it came into view, they joked of the supposed consequences. It was the curse of an uneducated, emotional people. Or was it?
This morning, Myron Mason’s body was found draped over the thorn bushes. Was it the Curse of the Comet, or foul play?
