Miss Emily Grierson is found dead in her basement. A funeral is soon held. The townspeople see this an opportunity to finally see the inside of her house after many years.
When Miss Emily was alive, she wouldn't pay her taxes and didn't come out of her house.
Two years after her dad died and her lover disappeared, the townspeople smell an awful stench from her house. The gentlemany sneaked around and placed lime around and in her property.
JUST GIVE ME WHAT I PAYED FOR!
Before the stench in the house occurred, Miss Emily had ordered arsenic poisoning for 'rats'. The townspeople think she was going to kill herself.
But Miss Emily, why do you need it?
After Miss Emily got her arsenic, Homer Baron, a man who she loves, goes missing. Many of the townspeople assume he had just left town. The last everyone had seen of Homer is him being let into Miss Emily's house by Tobe.
Maybe he ran way!
Where might he be?
Years after Mill Emily bought the arsenic, she disappeared and wasn't seen again... until her funeral. Everyone in town came to her funeral. Townspeople broke into a bedroom that hasn't been opened in 40 years. Inside, on the bed was a decomposed, decayed corpse of Homer Baron. They now know what happened to him. On the pillow next to his corpse was a single grey hair which belonged to Miss Emily..
