That little mouse can get into all sorts of places - I wonder if he spied on some mods and was blackmailing them.

And you know that mice are notorious for stealing and hiding shiny objects - like all those missing murder weapons .....

They do seem to be an endangered species of late. I don't envy Dreams having to explain what happened to the others (assuming the killer hasn't gotten to her by then).

That was a really gross way to go. Not all that likely either, but still gross.

Yeah, first WT Sharpe lost his head and then Dreams lost hers, though not in the same way.

Only you got it cleanly WT Sharpe. I understand Louie's beheading was a bit botched. He shifted just the right way for the blade to catch his jaw so that it wasn't a clean cut. Ouch!

But there is one thing I don't get...

Doesn't anybody have a closer look on the bodies? E.g., can we (the reader, royal plural) trust that is really is HarryT lying under the bookcase, and not some stuffed clothes? These technicalities are to a great extent missing from the story (probably because of the family-safe environments (note the distinction between family safe and moderator-safe) on mobileread.

So, my dear Agatha, could you provide us (again, the reader, royal plural) with a statement as to how reliably the bodies have been identified? Pooh cannot be identified of course, with corpus delicti eaten, but all the bodies that have enough remains as to be identified, has somebody identified the bodies with absolutely certainty?

Actually corpus delicti isn't the actual corpse of a murder victim. It's the body of evidence that a crime has been committed.
Wikipedia quote:
Quote:
Corpus delicti (plural: corpora delicti) (Latin: "body of crime") is a term from Western jurisprudence referring to the principle that a crime must have been proven to have occurred before a person can be convicted of committing that crime.
I for one don't believe that we can be sure it was Poohbear_nc who was found cooking in the microwave myself. If so the murderer was very quick to pluck his feathers among other things considering how soon after he was last seen the apparent corpse was found perfectly cooked. Of course others like Harry T and Dr Drib were no doubt hard to identify due to their manner of death too, but Poohbear seemed to be ready for dinner a little too quick.
