Murder Mystery In There.com

murdermystery

The residents of Fantasy Island recently made a grizzly discovery over at Minxyx’s Place. Upon entering the Saloon, they spotted the body of woman dressed in a hospital gown dangling by a noose from the barn rafters. The woman was a mental patient who had escaped from the hospital. At first glance the authorities presumed it was an open and shut case of suicide, but on closer inspection it was clear that something far more sinister had occurred.

Can you read the suicide note the escaped patient left behind and follow the clues throughout the Fantasy Island Neighborhood to solve the murder mystery? Put your sleuth skills to the test and figure out this case of Whodunnit!

Solve the Fantasy Island Freaky Festival murder mystery in There.com for a chance to win a one of a kind Whodunnit buggy! The murder mystery competition runs until Sunday, October 30th.

Neighborhood Zones are essentially reserved areas of empty land on one of There’s islands. While the terrain of each Zone may differ, they are all “blank slates” with no pre-placed objects inside the Zone. This allows you, as a Neighborhood owner, and your tenants to build and create whatever you wish in your own space. When a Neighborhood Zone has been purchased, you can fill it with objects like trees, houses, and other decorative items.

There are hundreds of items to choose from in Shop Central and Auctions to decorate your Neighborhood. The possibilities are endless for a number of themes. A great place to start is the “Home and Garden” section. Happy decorating!
