Geocache Description:

Although it is not required, when logging this cache, please describe your experience as a Who Dun It? mystery. Feel free to be creative. Feel free to be facetious.

It's a dark night. Dark like my soul. In the shadows of the Ivy-strewn monuments to knowledge, I hold up a darkened light pole, sucking on my cigar, regretting my last affair. The moon is out and it's giving my a migraine. All of a sudden, a shot rings out in the alley. I hear a scream and the hurry of foot falls. I rush to see the trouble, but it's too late.
Acrid gun smoke hangs in the air, but there's no blood on the ground. I examine the pavement and find scattered pearls from a necklace. And what's this? Scuff marks, as if from a shoe's heel. Someone was dragged from here. I venture on and find a cache. It contains a clue, left by the victim. But it's rather cryptic.
All in all, my investigation across the campus reveals three caches with three clues. What can it all mean? Will I ever find the damsel in distress?

October 20, 2009
