Just after midnight, police discovered a body floating in the river outside of Thimbleweed Park -- a development Police Chief Whitmire has called "perplexing," "mystifying," and "a real head-scratcher." Police at the scene were observed scratching their heads. Lacking the resources to tackle such a murder investigation, the Thimbleweed Park police department has reached out to federal agents for assistance. With a preliminary forensic analysis of the body revealing no conclusive evidence, the authorities are now turning to the public in hopes of locating an eyewitness, raising necessary funds, and ultimately finding the killer. As the local rubberneckers flocking to the crime scene grew, famed game designers Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick were spotted in the gathering crowd. The duo is best known around these parts as the creators of Maniac Mansion, the revolutionary point & click adventure game that recently exposed the antics of mad scientist Dr. Fred Edison to the world.
