Big Mystery in Tiny Town

Residents of Langley on Whidbey Island are baffled by large muddy footprints appearing all over the tiny town since the first of the year. While some locals have reported sightings of “Big Foot” in the nearby woods, others are saying it is all a publicity stunt to promote the first International Science Fiction Arts & Technology convention scheduled for the last week of February.

Unfortunately, whether it is a Big Foot or a big hoax, the body found behind the local coffee shop is no joke and the police have called in retired Detective I. B. Fuzz to investigate this 33rd in a series of murders which have plagued Langley in recent decades.

Do you think you can solve this latest mystery?
