This story is actually a fictionalized account of the "Murder Mystery" game
played by the MAA Student Mathematics Club at Western Carolina University.
Clues provide insight into possible motivations for the murder (including
the pressure to publish) and also practice mathematical skills such as
using parametrized curves in a three dimensional coordinate system.
Published in the September 2001 issue of Math Horizons.
