It was a beautiful September day for the Murder Mystery Ride. We had lots of sunshine and warm weather and 50 riders who were deter-mined to solve the mystery of who killed Aleana Vain, the egotistical psychiatric social worker who worked at the Nuts-R-US Asylum.
The riders set out on the trails and encountered 10 different suspects as well as props and hid-den clues along the way. All of the riders re-turned safely to the parking lot and worked diligently to try to figure out who the killer was.

There were many good guesses but the winning team was Team 2 who had the most correct answers. Team members were Krystal Martin, Toma Rutters, Dennis Ohme, Sarah Reter, and Jen Nafe.

The answer to the Murder Mystery is the killer was Hildegarde Hitler who suffocated Aleana with a plastic bag. The reason was Aleana & Dr. Mindbender were using an experimental drug called Loonium Powder that they were getting from Greedico Pharmaceuticals. The drug was not helping the patients and it was causing numerous side effects. The pharmaceutical com-pany was paying them a huge amount of money to try out the drug. Aleana went into the kitch-en to put the drug into the food and was caught by Hildegarde. She was infuriated and chased Aleana outside carrying a bag from the kitchen. She knocked her down and suffocated her with the bag.

Many thanks to all the riders who participated in this event and all the volunteers and suspects who did such a wonderful job of making this event happen!
