The Case of the Missing Millionaire. What really happened…. Introduction to the Crime.
What really happened…
“My name is Gene and I am an office manager. I took my dog Sasha down to the beach for a walk at noon. After taking off my sandals, I fell asleep with Sasha lying next to me. When Alfredo called out at about 3:00p.m., I woke up, and brought Sasha up right away. I never let Sasha come inside or on the patio.”
“My name is Kendra and I am an artist. I went upstairs to take a shower in the bathroom at about 2:30 p.m. I think that I heard a woman’s voice downstairs. I came downstairs as soon as Alfredo called out at about 3:00.”
“My name is Vera and I am a chemist. I went for a walk at about 2:00p.m. in the hills behind the house. I came back to the house when I heard Alfredo call for help at about 3:00.”
“My name is Alfredo and I am a computer programmer. I saw Felix sitting on the patio, so I joined him at about 2:00p.m. We each had a can of cola, but we poured them into cups to drink. I set down my cup of cola and went to the bathroom at about 2:45p.m. When I came back 10 minutes later, I found Felix lying dead on the floor, so I called out to the others at about 3:00.”
Could he have faked his own death?
It seems unlikely, because what would the motive be? What would he gain? Nothing.
Vera was Felix’s “sweetheart” from highschool. They broke up, but Vera was optimistic when she saw Felix at his parent’s funeral. He was very affectionate and said that he missed her. When Felix invited Vera to the cottage, she thought that Felix was interested in getting back together with her… then she found out about Kristal Chandleir…
Vera decided to murder Felix at a time she knew everyone would be relaxing. Gene and his dog always took a nap in the afternoon, Alfredo liked to strum on his guitar, and Kendra usually spent one hour getting ready to shower, one hour in the shower, and one hour getting ready once out of the shower. It was the perfect time to plan a crime.
