It was a long and almost unbearable drive out into the desert as the hot sun beat down on Detective Nose’s face. As luck would have it, his air conditioning had broken down only two days earlier and despite having all the windows open, the heat was simply excruciating. As the inspector sipped on some of the water that he brought for the trip, the thought that he may have somehow missed his destination was beginning to penetrate his mind. Just as he was about to turn around and head back, a small sign appeared that read “Ross Expeditions Here”. With a silent sigh of relief, he turned his car towards the small cabin that could be seen in the distance.
As Nose reached the front door, Jason Ross introduced himself and motioned for the detective to come inside. The interior of the cabin consisted of one very large, but cozy room. In the right-hand corner, all the camping supplies were piled including an axe, one five-liter jug of water, some canned food, a lantern and other various pieces of camping equipment. To the back of the room was a small fireplace, and a wooden table with a couple mismatched chairs.
The most notable item in the cabin could be seen in the middle of the floor; a body, evidently lifeless, sprawled on top of two sleeping bags that were casually laid there. The cause of death was not obvious. [Read More ...]

“It was terrible,” Mrs. Johnson was saying to a uniformed officer as Detective Nose arrived on the scene. “I had just got home from the grocery store and was coming in to ask Steve to help me get the groceries in. I could tell something was wrong the minute I opened the back door, but before I could do anything, someone slapped something over my mouth and nose. The next thing I knew, I was waking up on the kitchen floor. Steve was stabbed to death in the living room – there was nothing I could do, so I called the police right away and waited out here for you to get here.”
“You haven’t touched anything in the living room at all?” the detective asked Mrs. Johnson. She shook her head firmly.
“I knew that if I touched anything, I might disturb clues, and I really want you to catch the scum that killed my husband!” she said fervently. [Read More ...]
I was not quite sure as to why I was being called down to investigate an accidental drowning at Sandyside River but fortunately, it was a sunny day and I could not think of a better place to be. Who knows, maybe once I was done, I would get a little fishing in.
When I arrived, there were a few police officers and a small gathering of onlookers. Two of the officers were standing on the public docks talking to what looked like an extremely well tanned gentleman who was wearing a bathing suit. Next to them in the water was a canoe that looked like it had seen better days.
After approaching the trio, I introduced myself to the tanned fellow, who was looking very upset, and asked him what had happened. [Read More ...]

It is probably not a good idea to visit your friends at prison while intoxicated unless you are planning to move in as a man in Rochester discovered.
State police arrested 34-year-old William Henderson on Thursday afternoon after getting a call about a drunken visitor leaving the Wende Correctional Facility.
Troopers say Henderson had a blood-alcohol concentration of .24 which is three times New York’s legal limit for driving.
He was not only charged with felony driving while intoxicated but also unlawful possession of marijuana.
Henderson, who has been convicted of DWI twice in the last 10 years, was ordered held in Genesee County Jail following arraignment in Pembroke Town Court.
Detective Nose arrived bleary-eyed at the scene, having been roused from bed at two o’clock in the morning. And for what? Sarah Tandy, A pizza delivery girl, had been robbed. Even though the thief had gotten away with almost $800, this wasn’t exactly the crime of the century.
The reason for the late night call soon became apparent, however. It turns out Sarah was the daughter of a friend of the Captain.
Detective Nose sighed. Hopefully this wouldn’t take long.
“So, can you tell me what happened?” Nose started off.
The petite girl was visibly upset. “Y-y-yes. I had just finished making my last stop, a delivery of 30 pizzas to a late night party. I was getting into my car and was starting to drive away when a man knocked on my car door. I thought he was from the party, but when I rolled down my window, he stuck a gun in my face and asked me for all my money. I was so upset I couldn’t even drive back to the store.” [Read More ...]
The coroner said his death was accidental but I have my suspicions — I just can’t prove anything.”
Detective Nose stood inside the secluded cabin with the deceased’s brother. The cabin consisted only of two small rooms. It was very spacious with the antique kitchen being the highlight. It had an old wood burning stove and hand carved cabinets. On the blue stained counters sat, some food including some freshly opened canned goods, some apples, a few dirty dishes and a handheld can opener. The common area was small with a couch and a table. The second room was tucked away in the back. In it there was a single bed covered with an exquisite handmade quilt and a plain brown desk. The deceased’s body had been removed just a short hour ago.

Phishing is typically carried out by e-mail, and/or instant messaging and it often asks users to enter details at a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one.
