"I have just been murdered, I know you can help me"

Sue who was obviously shocked, asked how she could help her.

"I want to tell you what has happened to me and I want to describerepparttar killer to you. I then want you to go torepparttar 149116 police station tommorrow to tell them what I have told you. This will help them to findrepparttar 149117 killer, then I will be able to rest in peace."

Sue reluctantly agreed and Lisa disappeared.

Sue did go torepparttar 149118 police and describedrepparttar 149119 killer, telling them many things about him, including that he had a tattoo on his arm withrepparttar 149120 words "crazy fox" on.

The police did not take her as a serious witness, even though they found it strange that she seemed to know so much aboutrepparttar 149121 killing itself.

The murder itself went unsolved for twenty years, until a man was arrested for drink driving. The police took his DNA and it was matched torepparttar 149122 murder of Lisa.

Have a guess what he had tattoed on his arm, "crazy fox".
