Detroit Homicide


Detroit Homicide

On a dark and rainy day
A unique case came across my desk
A young girl found in the woods
Her corpse half devoured by pests

At first glance, I thought it just another homicide
Here in Detroit, they are as common as stars
But the crime photo was so interesting
There was an obvious pattern to her scars

I decided to take the case, so I set out for the forest
Investigators were already hard at work looking for clues
But I instantly noticed something odd...
Everything was blue

From her dress to her eyes, even a strand of her hair
Her socks and shoes, even some trees were painted blue
I'm sure they all noticed
But didn't think it a clue

I wrote it down in my notes
Our killer had some sort of passion for colors
Unfortunately it's not enough
I'm gonna have to wait and see if there are others

    I want to do some kind of contest, not sure what the prize will be yet but the rules of the game are

    1. Watch for poems called Detroit Homicide and if you can solve the crime before the detective does or any other player you win

    2. There is no time limit and the crime will unfold over time

    and don't worry I will make it difficult but I will give all the clues and I will worn everyone before the detective solves the crime
