At 8 p.m. on Tuesday in the MCC, CU students channeled their inner Sherlock Holmes to solve a staged murder mystery.

Instead of prowling the streets of London, students were placed in the tropical setting of “Margaritaland”. PAC and Student Activities Specialist Megan Canfield put on the night of murder and speculation. Students received a packet that included their new identity, a biography of their character, Monopoly money and a list of objectives to begin the game.Throughout the night the students questioned each other about who killed the bartender. Some made silent accusations while others shouted theirs to tell the whole world. Little did they know that the killer was sitting silently by the pool for most of the night.

Toward the end of the evening, the detective released the evidence of the murder for everyone to evaluate. The characters reveled their belief of “whodunnit” by closed valet. The majority of the votes proved wrong when the detective said it was the lifeguard who killed the innocent bartender.
