    The blonde in the red dress.

    She looks suspicious to me. Something about the eyes, I think.

    Love this. From the moment the head was seen and story wanted, to the camera angles, to the yellow police tape around the chairs.

    Actually, the police tape might be my favorite thing.

    “Ah, look. Bystanders.” Love this! OF COURSE! 😀 Every crime scene needs them! This was my favorite part…. very clever!

    Will there be a sequel?
