Norwich Carrotting Case

We had a hot tip from a nark in south-east London about Cedric’s icing. The lead went cold on us pretty fast. The person we wanted to speak to had slipped out of the country.

I asked The Chief for more resources for this enquiry before things snowball out of control. He said there’s a freeze on spending. It’s crystal clear more people are needed to work this case, or it will continue at a glacial pace.

The likely source of the weapon has been identified. We’re pretty sure it was from the organic frozen vegetable range in the Iceland on St. Stephen’s Street.

I wasn’t expecting an avalanche of witnesses, after the call to the public for help, but I realise the local football team play in yellow for good reason – the locals are scared. If we lean on the right person I’m sure they’ll sing like a canary.

Call for Witnesses

We need to move fast in the carrotting case. Frankly, we are stumped. Witnesses are turning out to be a little flakey.

The Chief is putting pressure on, “We can’t afford to let this slide.” he told today’s briefing. Still looking for a motive, but I got a hunch that lots of lolly will be involved.

If you know anything call our hotline.

Suspects Held for Questioning

Three suspects are being questioned in the recent Norwich carrotting case. Refusing to answer questions. They think by keeping cool they’ll get away with it. Time to put the heat on them.

Snow Falling on Cedric

It was a black and white kind of day. I took a turn into town and found this stiff on the street. At first I thought, ‘Poor guy, he’s frozen to death’ but then I recognised him, Cedric! I called the cops, he had been carrotted.
