Miss Ginger is lingering at 39 followers! Can't somebody "phone a friend" to get her over the hill?
Speaking of phoning, Miss Ginger has been accused of "phoning it in" when she blogs about articles from the Houston Chronicle. But really, sometimes she's feeling bloggish and there's nothing going on in her little life, but there's always something in this big city that her readers will find interesting, and it's not like they read the Chron every day!
Here's an article that Miss G find's intriguing, so let's put on our Miss Marple hats and figure this out.
This middle eastern kid who is a student at University of Houston calls his mom on a Friday evening and says he's leaving school and will be to their suburban home in 30 minutes. He never makes it, and he goes missing for like 2 weeks. The police look for him, but they have no leads, so they stop looking after one day. Fast-forward 2 weeks to yesterday, and some chick stops by an auto repair shop where she had parked her SUV 2 weeks earlier to have it repaired. She goes to get something out of the car, and when she opens it up she finds this kid dead in the driver's seat. On the passenger seat is some sort of booklet all burned up, and some of the plastic has melted, but the car is pretty much intact. The kid has died of smoke inhalation. The police investigate a bit and discovered that the kid had used a credit card earlier that night at Rich's, a nightclub which is sometimes gay and sometimes not and Miss Ginger can't really even keep track anymore. (Coincidentally, this is the club where Miss Mint Julep and the Mystery/Fantasy ball are held!)
The police visit the club and find surveilance video of the kid leaving the club alone, and they interview friends of his that say "yes, indeed, we did see him at Rich's that night." (Where were these kids 2 weeks ago when this all began?!)
Now meanwhile, this kids has missed a court appearance for a burgulary charge, so there's a warrant out for his arrest.
With all these random pieces of the puzzle dangling out there, the police have decided that it was either suicide or accident and they don't think any foul play is involved. What do YOU think?
