Well, after all that, summer showed up. And summer is the time that authors create books. I'm making an E-book and CD of Detective Notebook: Crime Scene Science (for kids aged 10 and up, very cool, with activities); working on a monkey novella with terrific real-life graphics, and I need to get back to that mystery (it's been back-burnered too long).
Anyway, as a way of apology, I am going to post a drawing I did.
The coroner is having a hard time establishing the time of death. Look at the crime scene and figure out why. Leave your answer in the comments box.
