  • Hey Dupin, have you seen the news lately?
  • No, did something happen?
  • BREAKING NEWS! A mother and daughter were murdered in their home on Rue St. last night. Witnesses say they heard strange voices and screams coming from their apartment. Planet Patrol have not identified the suspect.
  • Let's go check it out. 
  • Seem like the daughter, here, was strangled to death and then stuffed up the fireplace.
  • What kind of alien could be strong enough to do that? Where's her mother?
  • Whoever did this nearly decapitated her.
  • There's a bag of comet coins over there, so it couldn't have been a robbery.
  • You're right, and look! That footprint doesn't look alien at all. We need to talk to the witnesses.
  • ma'am I need you to tell me everything you remember about the murder of your neighbors.
  • It was about 3 a.m. I was sound asleep when all of a sudden I hear screaming coming from upstairs. There was a lot of yelling and stuff being thrown around. I heard two voices and then it got quiet. I definitely heard a deep alien voice but the other voice was different. I've never heard that language before. That's when I called Planet Patrol and we went inside.
  • Mr. Coin Keeper, you are under arrest for the murder of the women in the Rue Mars!
  • Dupin! The planet patrol arrested the coin keeper! They said that's the last person the mother saw before she was murdered!
  • You know, I think the planet patrol are settling. I don't think they have considered all of the evidence in the apartment. The patrol said all the windows in the apartment are nailed shut. We need to go have a second look. 
  • There's a broken nail in this window! Which means anyone could have opened it and got in. 
  • I'm not so sure the coin keeper is strong enough to stuff her up the fireplace. And take a look at her neck! Those handprints are huge. There is no way he could have strangled her. 
  • This was no alien. This was the work of a different species. A very large, terrifying creature not from this planet.
  • Maybe if we advertise that we've found the creature, his owner will show up and we'll find our suspect!
  • ATTENTION! Animal found! Being held safe on Rue St.
  • ATTENTION! Creature found! Being held safe on Rue St.
  • Hello? Mr. Dupin? I have some information on the creature in your advertisement.
  • This is my space monkey. He's the one that murdered the women. It was an accident
  • Why do you have a space monkey?
  • I was working in my garden one day when all of a sudden, this giant spaceship crashed in my backyard! 
  • I went over and discovered space monkey in the ship! He was hurt so I brought him inside.
  • One day, space monkey and I were having breakfast when he accidentally spilled his hot tang on himself. He erupted and got violent. I couldn't control him and he escaped. I followed him to the Rue apartments but by the time I got there, it was too late.
  • That explains how he was able to climb up into the broken window and murder the women. That also explains the handprints on the daughters neck and the footprint. 
  • That also explains the strange voice no one could understand!
  • Planet Patrol are lucky to have me.
