Eye

Fourth Period

Vancouver, WA- An unidentified old man was murdered in his own residence last
night when his butler confessed to murdering him. The butler's motive was to get
rid of the old man's "evil" looking eye.


"It all started about 1 week ago" the butler explained. "I just couldn't keep
on looking at the old man's "evil" eye. I went in his sleeping quarters every
night for eight nights but I didn't kill him though, because his eye wasn't open.
I wanted to kill him with his eye open. On the eighth night was when I did it.
I made a little to much noise trying to sneak into his room, the old man awoke.
I stayed very still for about an hour then I shined my lantern on his eye and I
could see that it was opened so I attacked, I got one of his pillows and
suffocated him, I then dismembered his body in the bathtub so there wouldn't be
any traces of blood to be found. I then put the body parts under the planks in
the floor," explained the butler.

"When we went to the house to check out a scream a neighbor heard, the butler
opened the door and was real nice, he let us snoop around the house to show us
that nothing was wrong. He said he had a bad dream. Then when he took us into
the old man's sleeping chamber he started to get real impatient and started to
act weird that is when he confessed the murder to us." explained a detective.
"When we took off the planks we saw the dismembered body parts and then we
arrested him." said detective Smith. "If it wasn't for that neighbor that heard
the scream we would have never known there was a murder." The butler is now in
a hospital for the criminally insane. The butler is now awaiting his court dates
yet to be announced.
