10% of the population…

Someone posted this picture on a FaceBook group that I belong to…

Here’s what I wrote and a bit more…

When the police arrived they found the victim, Marcia Grey,  lying on her back, a gun in her right hand and blood spatter on the wall above.

None of the neighbours remembered hearing a gunshot but they said how Marcia had been depressed lately because her latest book was not going to plan and she’d missed her deadline.

With a history of depression and her recent failings suicide was the obvious conclusion until, that was, the detective noticed that on the victim’s desk her pen was placed to the left of her notepad and she was still holding a cigarette in her left hand, surely that made her left handed and not right after all…

This wasn’t suicide, this was murder…
