Langley calls to sleuths to solve its Murder Mystery Weekend

The game is afoot.
The annual Mystery Weekend in Langley has arrived.
As always, the small Whidbey Island town is preparing to be overrun with lurid tales of deception, intrigue and death.
The weekend-long puzzle, this year on Feb. 25 and 26, is kind of like a scavenger hunt blended with the game of Clue.
Visitors are encourage to stalk the town in search of clues, checking in at shops and interviewing townspeople dressed in various costumes.
This year's theme, "In Cold Mud," starts when it appears that gold is discovered in them-thar-woods. But the townspeople don't know where.
A quiet stranger arrives weighed down by the precious metal. Before he can say where he struck it rich, his body is found in the city park.
Now, it's up to the part-time detectives; that's you.
The Langley Murder Mystery Weekend Police headquarters is the Langley Visitor Information Center, 208 Anthes Ave.
Check in from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 25.
The coroner will deliver his report at 1 p.m. Feb. 25 at City Hall, 122 Second St.
The visitor center is open from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Feb. 26. At 4:30 p.m. Feb. 26, the murderer is revealed, arrested and locked up at the Langley Middle School, 723 Camano Ave.
Pick up a copy of the mystery weekend newspaper, the Langley Gazette, for clues.
Prizes are awarded even if you can't figure out whodunit.
Tickets cost $10 per person or $25 for parties of four at the visitor center. For more information call 360-221-6765.
