  • For Mr Maloney!
  • I had cooked this meal for Mr Maloney. May you please have it. For him.
  • For Mr Maloney!
  • When Mrs Maloney heard the news she was enraged about what he was saying. Mrs Maloney believed that her husband was cheating on her and went into the freezer and grabbed the biggest slab of meat that she could find. She then hit him over the head with the slab of meat and killed him.
  • Resolution
  • The killer could be under our noses.
  • After Mrs Maloney killed her husband she began to think of a plan to cover up the crime. She came up with a plan to go to the market as usual to buy food for dinner. She wanted people believe that she was innocent and did not commit the crime. Mrs Maloney pulled her self together and  headed off to the market.
  • As you wish.
  • After visiting the market, she prepared the meal with the large slab of meat and then called the police. Mrs Maloney told the police that she had found him dead and was in shock. The police then began to question her and look around the house for clues. Mrs Maloney distracted the officers by offering them a meal she had cooked for her husband.
  • Mrs Maloney's plan was successful, as the officers had eaten the weapon used to kill Mr Maloney. After the meal, the officers kept looking for evidence but could not find anything. They continued to search the home but were not successful and felt that the killer could be under their noses. Mrs Maloney was secretly laughing because she knew that they would never find the killer.
