It was approaching midnight when I got a call from Mr. Barker that Mr. Douglas had been murdered. I rushed towards the scene. To my great surprise the drawbridge was down which should have been up at this hour of the night. When I reached the scene of the murder I could see Mr. Douglas’ body lying spread out near the fireplace. His head was towards the fireplace. There was Mr. Barker in the room but Mr. Douglas’ wife was in another room. She was too shocked to see the dead body.

When I asked Mr. Barker he said that the door was open when he arrived on the scene and it was he who lowered the drawbridge. He also said that usually at 6 pm the drawbridge was put up so that nobody could enter the manor during night. There was a doubt in my mind that somebody might have entered before 6 pm and hid himself somewhere in the manor to wait for the right time to execute the crime. Mr. Barker and Douglas’ wife needed to be investigate nobody can be beyond suspicion. Proper investigation needs to be done to solve this murder mystery.
