We've got a basement apartment in our house, and our tenant is a bartender. (Side note: If you have an apartment, get a tenant who works nights. It's great.) But that's not the story.

Anyway, she had her purse stolen at work a couple of weeks ago, so at 3:20 a.m. the other night I was awakened by her banging on my door. Bleary-eyed, I let her in, and then had to take a couple of hours off work the next morning to change the locks. But that's not the story.

So anyway, the other night when we came home we found a business card for a police detective in our mailbox, with the words "Call me" written on it. It was somewhat of a mystery, because we have the stolen drug-dealer bike, the stolen purse, and on top of that, we've done a fair bit of market research for law enforcement agencies, so we get asked about that occasionally. The odd thing is that he was a detective for a county that's a half-hour from our house, so we were surprised that he didn't just call. But that's not the story.

So anyway, we trade phone tag a couple of times and finally hook up. I'm hoping that he arrested the drug addict who stole my bike, but he says, "I'm looking for [tenant's name]." I gave him our tenant's phone number, and asked, "Did you find her purse?"

"What purse?"

"She had her purse stolen. I thought maybe you'd found it."

"No. We actually want to interview her as a possible murder witness."

Whoa. I wasn't expecting that. It turns out that someone who had been in her bar that night was murdered, and he had been in her bar earlier. I guess they wanted to find out who he was with or something.

That's the story. Kind of spooky.

Obviously, the bike stealing, purse snatching drug addict did it.

If I was going to kill someone in a bar, I'd have to bludgeon them with some sort of metal bar. The symmetry would be irresistable.

I've watched a lot of suspense movies and if you want to save the family pet and protect your home you should should bury her in the backyard before the killer tries to track her down.

Uh, okay.

I'm still not getting why this is interesting.

WAIT. Let me guess: This bar was a set in the last Kevin Bacon flick, right?

Off topic, but I know a person who knows a person who knows a person who knows a person who knows a person who knows Kevin Bacon. At least, I'm pretty sure I do.
