Topic Generator: Tender Clue

Spaghetti with Meatballs

“Looks Fairly obvious Inspector Tender, so many clues.”

“i am not so sure, almost too obvious Cloggle.”

“But we found the victim with his face buried in a plate of spaghetti with meatballs and a knife in his back.”

“Let’s wait for the forensic specialist, Dr. Morbid. Chamber have a look at this corpse. Did he die from the stab wound?”

“I don't think so Inspector. There is a smell of almonds here, I have a feeling it the victim  was poisoned and the knife was afterwards used to lead us to false conclusions. We will know definitely after the autopsy.”

“But inspector”

“Yes Cloggle”.

“There is a spent bullet cartridge on the table and a gunshot wound in the left temple. Perhaps he was shot.”

“He might even have suffocated by breathing in the spaghetti sauce. What do you think Dr. Morbid?”

“Hard to tell. I believe he was shot after he died. It would be my first victim suffocated by spaghetti sauce, but there is a first time for everything.”

“And what is the rope with the noose doing hanging from the curtain rail. This points to a strong case of gang warfare.”

“Perhaps they wanted to hang him if the poison, the gun and the knife did not work.”

“It seems that the victim is the actor, James Handsome. Morbid I think it is time to have him transported to the mortuary. The crime scene is teaming with clues.”

“Forget it, I am staying where I am.”

“Who said that?”

“I did.”

“But you are dead, you are the victim, James Handsome.”

“Inspector he sees to be alive, although his face looks quite bloody with all that tomato sauce from the meatballs.”

“Inspector Tender and the rest of you, you are ruining my new photo for my career.”

“I am sorry. We were called to the crime scene as a neighbour saw you face down in a plate of spaghetti with meat balls through the window. She was convinced you had been murdered, especially with the knife in your back.”

“It might have been a good idea to check if I was really dead first of all. Your Dr. Morbid also seems to be quite an amateur forensic specialist.”

“I am fully qualified, although I must admit I usually work in the veterinary department dealing with suspicious deaths of guinea pigs, rabbits, pigs and cows. I am a qualified specialist in the diagnosis of chicken flu amongst the fowls.”

“I am an actor and was planning on doing a selfie for the film studios to show how original I would be in the next Inspector Death film. And take your fingers out of my salted almonds. And now you have ruined it all, but just a moment. Is that a police photographer outside?”

“Yes, of course. If we are called to a crime scene we must have photos.”

“Great, then take my photo. I promise I will sign them afterwards and each of you can have one.”

“What do you think Cloggle.”

“I think that is a wonderful idea. I was always a fan of Inspector Death movies.”

“Come to think of it so am I.”

“He is one of the best. As a forensic expert of the veterinary kind, I would support the idea.”

“And I must admit James Handsome is quite a well known actor. Ok men, take his photo and afterwards one with all of us, but put your head back in the spaghetti and meatballs, It will look more genuine.”
