  •                    Falling Action
  • Where could that killer be?
  • I have no idea where he could be.  It definitely can't be Mary though.
  • Officers I would feel horrible if you didn't eat after all that hard work you have done.
  • Mary has just killed Patrick with a leg of lamb after Patrick had told her that he wanted a divorce.
  • Resolution
  • Well I guess we could eat. I am feeling kind of hungry.
  • After murdering Patrick she puts the leg of lamb into the oven and starts cooking it. She then starts practicing what she's going to say to Sam the owner of the food shop. After practicing several times she walks over to the store and acts perfectly fine and joyful as if nothing had happened at her house.
  • After returning to her house Mary acts as if someone has murdered her husband and calls the police. The police arrive and start searching the house. They start questioning her about where she had gone and what she had done. After multiple questions and her big crying show they start thinking that she can't be the murderer.
  • After several hours of trying to find evidence. Mary insists that the officers eat the leg of lamb that she was cooking. The officers eat the leg of lamb while discussing where they think the murder weapon is. They have no idea that they are eating the evidence. Mary giggles in the other room at how smart she is.
