Crime Solved!

Thank you to all our psychics who helped us solve this crime. Right now, we are sending the CSIcops (see what I did there?) out with a warrant for the arrest of…

Masala_Skeptic for high-hatting the monkey with a lead pipe in the dining room! Once we have her in custody, we will make her swear on the monkey’s head to give us a truthful confession.

Much thanks to all of our psychic investigators (actually, not really. Most of you were way wrong.) But the reward for helping us catch the perp goes to Mark Mulkerin!!

I based the winner on a possible 21 22 points – 10 for the correct Skepchick, 7 for location and 5 for weapon (because that’s what made sense to me this morning.) No one got more than one of the three correct.

Cethis had Rebecca cooking a chicken… a psychic would know that Rebecca doesn’t cook chickens, she’s a vegetarian. So right away we knew he was trying to set our investigation off track.

We thought we were hot on the trail with alias‘ prediction that it was Jill in the billiard room with a revolver… but then we realized that was way too obvious. Someone was clearly trying to frame her given her extensive criminal record involving violence.

There was a good amount of finger pointing in Bug_girl‘s direction, but we were able to alibi her. She was on the internet downloading octopus porn. And Sam‘s shameful alibi was that he was in the bushes outside Bug_girl‘s window trying to get a peak.

When questioned, a.real.girl simply responded that she was too busy looking at naked skeptics to be bothered with monkeys.

The rest of the Skepchicks lawyered up, so we desperately needed your psychic help. We’ll have to see what she says in her confession, but the monkey wants justice!

Thanks again, Mark! And congratulations!
