This year's library mystery scavenger hunt was the cold case of Mr. Beeta Negg, world famous chicken trainer and chicken circus owner. We really gave our forensic and critical thinking skills a workout! Participants were tasked with sorting through evidence that may, or may not, have been relevant to the cold case of Mr. Beeta Negg, world famous chicken circus trainer. We hunted for clues in the initial police report, medical examiner’s report, old witness statements, and new evidence collected from shredded paperwork & donated books. Some questions were answered. Many questions weren’t. Participants correlated evidence to conclude the medical examiner’s report was incorrect, and deduced that Mr. Negg’s death could’ve been intentional or accidental with more evidence needed to be sure. While this exercise didn’t wrap up neatly like a T.V. crime show, it did give a glimpse into the real world of investigation.
