Murder at Pele!
There's been a murder at Pele!
The victim was a harmless man(iken) named Eddie Flanagan. I picked him up (well, I don't mean I picked him up, even though he was sort of cute, I mean I purchased him in a box, along with about 25 of his fellow manikens and womanikens a couple of weeks ago at the Tangli sim).
Not a bad guy.
And now he's dead.
Somebody killed him.
When I logged on tonight I found Eddie face down on the sand with blood pooling all around and a Celtic sword made by the legendary Eric Linden sticking in his back.
I did what any socially responsible avatar would do-- I phoned the cops. They came, asked a lot of questions, flirted with me, measured the body's liver temperature, dusted the sword for prints (I actually own the sword, but I made sure there were no prints on it).
Then they put up crime tape and left.
Actually, it was my crime tape; I made it in Quark XPress. I sold it to the top cop.
What am I supposed to do with a dead avatar on the beach?
