The Case of the Locked Drawer


The victim was found sprawled on a desk in which a locked drawer contained the murder weapon. Who killed the victim? Why was the weapon in the locked drawer? How did the weapon get into the locked drawer?

The grandma raised the child when Etta’s daughter, the girl’s mother was murdered—along with the girl’s father—in a home-invasion robbery.
