    Couldn’t you have given the story a better title. The murder occured outside of the palace, some miles away.

    I think it was a set-up by some of the palace folks. I don’t know why they can never solve a murder mystery.

  4. HOW STRANGE? IS THIS NOT A SACRIFICE? WHY WD THEY KILL AND TAKE NO ITEMS. THIS IS REAL MACBETH. SOMETHING EEERIE ISN’T IT.
