The pre-dawn light dispells the shadows of night from the still quiet streets. The aroma of kitchens preparing for breakfast wafts laziy on the gentle morning breeze. The sounds of people returning from a nights work and the day shift is rattling into life. And then the dawn comes as the bridge swings to let through the early rising sailors bound to destinations unknown or arriving to moor their vessels.

A Message From The Mayor

The Izzy Harris Crime-ologist Report

Who Slew Maribella Maelstrums:

It was a tragedy when the body of Bridgetown’s beloved Flower Growing Queen was found deceased amidst her award winning Rose gardens, but it soon became horrifying when a preliminary observation by the constable first at the scene realized her death was suspicious.

Then, with the arrival of the coroner it was discovered that Maribella Maelstrums had been murder.

“I seems by poison but I can’t be sure until I do an autopsy.” Said the towns coroner, Dr. Maddie Middlesward.
