The Plot

Christmas Downloadable Murder Mystery Party Kit: I Saw Mommy Killing Santa ClausIt's Christmas time again and the toy department at Lacy's is selling more merchandise than its chief competitor, Tidewater's Toys. The main reason for this explosion of sales is Elmer Ellsworth, Lacy's holiday Santa Claus.

Before Elmer was hired for last year's Christmas season, Lacy's toy receipts were so bad that the store was ready to stop selling toys altogether. Now, business is booming because Elmer makes Santa come alive to young and old alike.

In a daily holiday ritual, kids hug Santa and mothers give him kisses as photos are taken for Christmas albums. But, in the midst of parents and children lined up to tell the jolly old elf all about their wish lists, Elmer stands up, utters a faint "ho, ho, ho," and falls to the floor in front of his chair. He is dead.

Someone has done in the department store Santa before he could grant everyone's wishes. 

The Suspects


Mary Mostly  
Christmas tree lot owner and the mother of five. Last year, Elmer promised that Santa would bring her brood everything they asked for. When the presents didn't materialize, Mary's Christmas turned chilly.

Yul Tidewater
The owner of Tidewater's Toys. Elmer used to work for Yul until they had an argument and Elmer took his talents to Lacy's. Tidewater's sales immediately took a dip.

Kip Ringle
The former Santa at Lacy's. When Kip was replaced last year by Elmer, Kip got a job as the Santa at Kimble's Department Store, located directly across the street.

Ginger Redman
Seamstress and costume maker. She supplies all of the stores in the area with Christmas costumes for Santa and his elves. Elmer asked for some unusual alterations to his Santa suit.

Mick Flashburg
The photographer at Lacy's. During the Christmas season, he takes photos of children sitting with Santa and sells the prints to proud parents.

Holly Hall
Elmer's high school sweetheart. He left her standing at the altar on Christmas Eve many years ago. She's never forgotten how he destroyed the holiday season for her.

The 10-Suspect Kit includes:

Madison Hadafew
Public relations person for Lacy's.
What would she do if a scandal was uncovered at the department store? 


Ray Deer
Escaped convict. With his record of criminal activity, what does he know about Elmer? 

Rusty T. Snooman
Security guard at Lacy's
Why is so much merchandise disappearing off the shelves? Could Rusty's job be in jeopardy?

Jackie Kimble

Owner of Kimble's Department Store.

Her store is right across the street and is losing business to Lacy's. What would she do to quiet the competition?

You'll get everything you need, including . . .
  • Complete instructions on how to conduct the investigation of Elmer Ellsworth's murder.
  • Roles for all suspects that include family backgrounds and recollections of events surrounding the murder.

I was really pleased with the murder/mystery package that I ordered from you. I have used two other companies before but they did not compare to yours at all.  I would definitely recommend your website and can't wait for the opportunity to host another of your murder/mystery evenings. Brilliant!!!
