KILLER ON THE LOOSE

By Neel Anil Panicker 

‘But why’s would someone do this?’, Koshy half blurted out.

Detective Chacko ignored his junior’s remark while allowing himself a full 360 degree gaze of the room.

There it was___an upturned bookcase___Jungle Books and Harry Potters’ falling out of it, the pages half exposed; plus, broken shards of glass on the Italian marbled floor; and the shocker of it all___reams and reams of toilet paper rolls cut into a million pieces and strewn all over a bed sans a heavily mauled bedsheet and pillows.

It seemed as if a few street dogs had had a field day of the place.

Turning around, his X-ray vision scanned a few more items of note and confined them to memory.

‘So Sir, what do you say?’

“What do I say? Well what I say is that it’s Tuesday which means the murder was committed last Sunday, that the killer loves Swiss cheese, digs chamber music, and is not a very noble man.

All Koshy could do was stare dumb struck at his boss while Chacko skirted past Mrs. Amminni’s still body that lay half naked on the floor.

    Detective Chako has an uncanny knack for solving crimes. His assistant has a lot to learn from him.

  6. Neel, I just found out this afternoon that InLinkz is doubling the price of their membership and I have decided I am not going to pay it. There will be no more FFfAW challenges. Thank you so much for your participation and I am glad to have gotten to know you!
