Passion Crime: Lost Head, Hole In Chest

by Luna PA | Score: 2650

A man fell from a 100 story building. He hit his head on a car and, unfortunately, also fell on top of a hydrant. He's no head and a hole in his torso. The police put the building in lockdown as an officer was passing by when it happened. They started reviewing footage from the security cameras, but the one room where they had a massive blind spot was where the pushing took place. Three people were supposed to be in the room at the time. Margaret, Williams and Jasper. The police questioned them one by one.
They all had reasons to kill — all terrible, except one. Margaret was upset because the victim, Oswald, had allegedly stolen her idea of making tiny pet rhinos. Williams revealed Oswald was quite homophobic and, therefore, targeted many insults a day against him. Jasper worked with his girlfriend and word is, apparently, that Oswald reported inappropriate behaviour regarding the two.
Jasper said he had an alibi. The alibi was, however, someone he'd allegedly been talking to during the incident and, as it turns out, he'd lost this important number. The flimsy excuse said it all. 
He confessed his crime of passion and was tried for murder. Quite an easy one.
