Murder in Fresh Food World

Detective Chief Inspector Willoughby was reading an Agatha Christy novel when Detective Sgt Rory walked in. “What is it Rory?” asked Willoughby. “They found a body in the fridge at Coles sir.”

Willoughby went straight down to Coles in ten minutes flat. Police tape was everywhere and the body was laid out on the ground, surrounded by lolly pops. “What was the murder weapon Rory?” asked Willoughby. It was a knife from Coles sir.” Rory replied. “Who was this man?” voiced Willoughby. “An attendant. Liam was his name poor fella.” Said a person walking by. “And you are?” asked Rory. “Dave the janitor I am. Best be off then.” He walked off to the janitor’s closet.

Later that day D.C.I Willoughby was interviewing the person who found the body, Sarah, the manager of Coles. “When did you find the body?” he asked. “At about 2:30 in the afternoon, I had just sent him to refill the lolly section opposite the fridge.” She replied. “That explains the lolly pops at the crime scene.” Said Rory. “Who do you think did it?” Willoughby asked Sarah. “Well personally, I think it was the Woolworths manager.” She replied. “Clan rivalry, sir?” Offered Rory. “Let’s check it out.” Said Willoughby.

The following day, Rory turned up at Woolworths to make some enquires with the manager as D.C.I Willoughby spoke with the janitor at Coles. “Where were you at 2:30pm yesterday?” He asked. “I was in me old store ‘ere.” Rory checked with a nearby employee and the manager’s alibi was true. Suddenly Rory got a call from D.C.I Willoughby. “Rory, I found a blood soaked lolly pop in the janitor’s closet.” He said. “I’ll come over sir.” Rory said.

When Rory came over, the two of them secured a confession from the janitor. “He was asking for it the scum! Trying to act superior to the rest of us!” Yelled Dave. “Get him into the car Rory.” Said Willoughby. The janitor was guided into the police car, cuffed and driven to the station. “Well Rory,” started Willoughby, “never judge a book by its cover.”
