A detective story written by Silvia and Carmen

The first day of the second term of high school Pepita found her daughter’s body in one of the bathroom stalls. She started to cry and in that moment she saw a letter in the mouth of her dead daughter.

The note said: “If you don’t leave the city and give me all your money in three days, I will kill your other daughter.  Put the money in the music classroom”.

She looked everywhere but she couldn’t find anyone. Pepita went to talk with her husband, Topo.

He said, “Don’t worry we will find the guilty party”.

The next day Pepita thought about who the murderer could be and drew a table:

Suspects Motives
Eustaquia Because she wanted to have a relationship with her boyfriend, Topo.
Francis Because he was in the same class as her daughter and hated her
Carmen Gallego Because Pepita had more friends than Carmen
Paloma Because one day she fought with Pepita because Pepita had arrived late

 

Pepita decided to go Paloma’s office and she asked: “Where were you last Monday at 5 o’clock”?

“I was on a school field trip. Why?”

“Because I didn’t see you yesterday.”

“Okay, bye Pepita.”

“Bye,” said Pepita.

Pepita crossed Paloma off the list.

Suspects Motives
Eustaquia Because she wanted to have a relationship with her boyfriend, Topo.
Francis Because he was in the same class as her daughter and hated her
Carmen Gallego Because Pepita had more friends than Carmen
Paloma Because one day she fought with Pepita because Pepita had arrived late

 

That night Pepita found a very expensive ring in Topo’s jacket and the next week Pepita celebrated her 20-year anniversary with Topo. The next day Pepita went to talk with Francis on the playground. She asked: “Did you get along with my daughter?”

Francis: “Last week we buried the hatchet. I’m sorry for your loss.

Pepita: “Thanks, Francis.”

Pepita had few options left and she didn’t have a lot of time so she ran to Carmen’s class but when she was running she saw something that looked familiar when she saw Eustaquia…

In that moment Pepita crossed Carmen off her list and realized that the guilty party was Eustaquia.

How did Pepita know that?

Pepita saw the ring from Topo’s jacket on Eustaquia’s finger. Pepita locked Eustaquia up in the music classroom and called her daughter and told her to come to the high school in 10 minutes. Then Topo arrived and went to see if Pepita had put the money in the classroom but when he entered the classroom, Pepita closed the door and finally Pepita discovered that Topo and Eustaquia were a couple and that Topo was trying to take advantage of Pepita to get money from her. She called the police and Topo is still in prison.
