Sherlock Sandy & The Case of the Extorted Bear
Oh, hello there... Sherlock Sandy here...
I've just been examining some of the evidence in the case of Ben and his Cookie Extortionist.
I'd like to draw your attention to the threatening note that Ben received...
Do you see? Not a single misspelling, that is beary unlike stuffies. And those letters from glossy magazines have been cut out beary neatly... far too neatly for a bear.
See... here is Ben's note... beary poor spelling... well, that is... if you're into that sort of thing but... this case is getting beary complex. I have a lot of questions.
I dusted the note for fingerprints... nothing. No water marks or honey stains either. Also, unlike a stuffie.
And I have to act quickly because Ben is in trouble!
Knowing Ben's household... suspicion naturally lands on Jerry first... but... given the characteristics of the note... I am considering that Jerry either had a human assistant or... someone is trying to frame Jerry... which means both of my pals are in trouble!
A question... Ben says the note was taped to the refrigerator... my questions is... at what location?? Was it up high, down low? This is beary important... It's always nice to collect evidence first-hand but... in this case we'll have to go with what we have...
I also have to say... no bear in their right mind would write "Hand over....". Bears don't have hands... we have paws... so if this really was Jerry... it would be "Paw over..."... don't you think??
