Pupils arrived at school Tuesday morning to find blood soaked steps and a chalk outline from where their beloved Principal was slain the night before. A Detective Morgan arrived on the scene to advise Lower Fifth pupils that their job for the day was to use the clues that had been left behind, on and around the body, to identify the perpetrator of the heinous crime so they could be brought to justice!  Find out who murdered Mr Charles here:

Pupils spent the day undertaking chemical analysis, smashing blood pools with hammers, analysing fingerprints, and eagerly interviewing the suspects for their alibis, and weighing and measuring them to see if they fit the bill. There were some red herrings, and indeed, most of the suspects seemed to be quite shifty. But as the end of the day approached, most pupils were certain they had identified the murderer.

At 4pm, Detective Morgan arrived back at the scene and instructed pupils to stand by the person they believed killed Mr Charles. The majority stood by Father Padfield – and we were all shocked as he confessed to the crime he had committed! He was not sorry for slaying Mr Charles, indeed, Mr Charles was the trigger as he had been wearing colourful socks to work for sometime now, which is Father Padfield’s signature clothing piece! Cuffed and read his rights, Father Padfield was taken away!
