September Murder Mystery:

Death is a CabernetSeptember 14th, 5:30 PM

It was an evening of wine and cheese at the Melee Vineyards in the Nippy Valley, celebrating the winery’s tenth anniversary. Owner Malcolm Melee took great pride in his world-famous Melee Cabernet, the wine that tickles the palates of wine connoisseurs around the globe. Even so, Melee’s surly personality has produced more adversaries than advocates.

As the gathering broke up about midnight, Melee bade farewell to everyone and said he would stay around to turn out the lights. But this morning, it became deadly obvious that someone had planned lights out for Malcolm Melee, for his body was found at the bottom of the staircase that leads to the oak casks in the wine cellar. Someone had put the cork on Melee and taken action that would squeeze the winery’s reputation.

October Murder Mystery:

Evil Never DiesOctober 5th, 5:30 PM

He was called Evil-Eyed Emil. When he looked at people with his infamous right eye, so the story went, bad things invariably happened. Townspeople cringed and covered their faces as Emil came near, not daring to look directly into his ominous orb. And, as he was being driven out of Reaper Junction on Halloween night exactly 100 years ago, Emil vowed to return one day to wreak his vengeance on the mob and its progeny for the way he had been so rudely tossed out.

That cryptic curse was all but forgotten by today’s generation of Reapers who laughed at such nonsense. But the laughter has stopped. For last night, shockingly and unexpectedly, a local resident staggered into the town square and announced that Emil had been sighted in the woods and, true to his century-old proclamation, someone had been the victim of Emil’s anger.

The deceased was Grimsby Graves, the patriarch of a family whose ancestors had helped found Reaper Junction in 1770. The Graves seemed to have had their fingers in every pie that was ever baked in Reaper Junction. The history books say that it was, in fact, the Graves brothers who had led the torchlit mob that oversaw Emil’s abrupt exit into the stormy night.

So, how then can justice be done? How can someone who is already dead be brought to trial? And can the court truly find a jury of his “peers?” Or will the explanation be less scintillating and more sinister? Could someone have used Emil as a scapegoat to cover a homicide that was well planned and willingly perpetrated by an Emil imposter?
