Murder Mystery

The janitors body lay just inside the door a small puncture wound just below his right ear oozed blood like hot grease from a roasting bratwurst pierced with a fork except that grease isn't red and the blood wasn't that hot and it wasn't a fork that poked him but a screwdriver, not the Philips cross-head type but a long thin one the kind electricians use and you can often find in the bargain bin at the hardware store near the cash register along with plastic flashlights, and cheap ‘Made in China’ wire cutters that you buy but never use because they won’t cut wire worth a damn and at best will only put a small indent in the wire so you can at least bend it back and forth until it breaks.
