Last night, I dreamt a truly horrific dream, of which I shall tell to you shortly, which inspired me to write today.
In my belief, dreams are not just pictures and memories thrown together in a mixing bowl and chucked out in sleep, which is technically what they are, but they are overviews of one of my parallel selves' days.
Below I have shown my account of the murder of my friend (my dream), my suspects etc, using anonymous names
Witness account of the murder:
Seven of us were sitting in a circle, laughing and hanging out in the woods like we normally do. When I looked to my right I saw crimson blood in pools splattered all over the field like a child's painting and above all this mess was the severed head of my friend hanging on a tree branch with blood still pouring from his open throat. All of us started screaming and running around in horror, panic and fear. I saw that behind where Henry's head was hung, there was a small opening within the trees and a mysterious man dressed in all black was standing there, staring at what seemed to be a wall. As I got closer, I could see that the wall was splattered in words written in blood. The man dressed in black told me that he was trying to decipher the words written, presumably by the murderer about Henry. Me and my friends all tried to call the police, but none of us had our phones on us so we tried to find either the police or a phone to call them. To get out of the woods, we had to go through a hotel but I was very freaked out and scared, which caused me to panic and get stressed. We attempted to find our way through the hotel, but it was like a maze, which involved lots of dark alleyways and tunnels. We found ourselves reluctant to go down these halls after seeing our dead friend's head; my friend (suspect b) especially was very wary and terrified to walk alone. Trying to get through was impossible, because one of our friends (suspect c) kept stalling us to stop and eat cake, which obviously panicked me because we needed to find the police so that they could either save henry or catch the killer, but she kept trying to stop us... That's when i fainted, I cannot remember anymore from that fateful night...
a - Apparent best friend of victim, present at time of discovery
b - Good friend of victim, present at time of discovery
c - previously was a girlfriend of the victim, but has since become friends with the victim, present at time of discovery
d - friend of victim, possibly jealous of victim's friendship with said suspects' best friend, not present at time of discovery
e - newcomer to the group, not present at time of discovery
f - has a history of tension within the group, could still be resentful to victim, but recently reformed friendships, not present at time of discovery
g - friend of victim, previously had feelings for victim and was hurt when she suspected he had feelings for someone else, but they have since moved on, present at time of discovery
h -Good friends with victim, has secretly violent fantasies, present at time of discovery
i - Good friends with victim, tends to be depressed and sleep deprived, listens to rock music, present at time of discovery
j - Good friends with victim, is suspected to have feelings for victim, not present at time of discovery
What we know
- His head was cut off
- this rules off suspect B because she's too squeamish of blood
- this is evidence against suspect C because her father is a paramedic, so she could/would know where to slit the throat correctly. She is also strong so could possibly have stopped resistance, also carried out the deed swiftly
-The head was hung in the woods
- this could have been to scare the group as they often go to these woods
- this rules out suspect e and f because they never went to these woods
- The head was hung on quite a tall branch
- this is evidence against suspect a, g, h and i as they are all over 5'6, so they are as tall/taller than the branch
- The handwriting on the wall-message was being deciphered, which could suggest that:
- it was written in bad hand writing (definite evidence against suspect a, possible evidence of d, e, h or i)
- it was in a foreign language (evidence against victims that take a foreign language: c, d and h)
- No one had a phone to call the police, which is peculiar because usually at least one person will have a phone
- The fact that suspect c kept stopping to eat cake is suspicious
-did she want to prevent the police being called because she had done it?
I think that suspect C has the most evidence against her: she could know exactly how to slit a throat because of her family's medical history, she has strength and is very good at sport, she is an ex-girlfriend of the victim so could have resentment against the victim, she probably knows the woods best out of everyone having lived next to it her entire life, she takes a foreign language, she kept trying to stop everyone from reaching the police quickly.
