Monday Mystery: The Sparkled Band

Posted by on April 1, 2019

Note: Last time Hugh chose a medium mystery.

The Case:

Connie lies dead in a ring with Sheila. Police arrest Tanya for Connie’s murder, and Sheila goes free.

The Mystery:

How did Tanya kill Connie? What role did Sheila play?

(The winning solution MUST contain all of these elements, please don’t assume information from a previous question.)

Hint #1: The classic love triangle started it all

Hint #2: Of the three females, one is not human


You’re free to ask anything, (please keep it to one question a post for simplicity’s sake,) but Jurd can only answer your questions with:

  • Yes
  • No
  • Yes and No
  • Irrelevant
  • I don’t know
  • Rephrase your question
  • Define what you mean by…
