The most mysterious, unexplainable

events often take place in ordinary

Places like the little

College Town of Chestnut Hills

These inexplicable events

sometimes have an explication.

But some of them mysteriously

won't ever have it.

Wednesday 21 of April.

It might just be better to accept

the incomprehensible...

instead of looking for a reason

that doesn't exist,

since there are things that are


The movie you are about to see

is one of them.

15 A. A...

Come doggie!


Friday, 23 of April.

You can't fool me.

47 P.A.

I know all your

hiding places.

I got you boy! , I might not see

very clear,

But I can hear

a fly flying.

I got you

Come doggie!

Come on doggie!

Come here!

Be a good boy,

and bring my sleepers.

Come on doggie

Where did he go?

I don't think he is...

Damn dog!

I'll go to get the sleepers.

Damn it,

that dog is going to kill me.

Next Aonday or Tuesday.

Come on silly, I can hear you!

So come on out.

26 or 27 of April.


All right, I found you,

get out of the closet!

Listen silly! I told you

to get out of there.

AONSTER IN THE CLOSE Wednesday, 16 of Aay

The Daily Globe, established in 1887

33 A.A.

Excuse me chief...

Can I talk to you?

How many times do I have to tell you

not to call me chief?

Excuse me Ar. Bernstein.

Ben, my name is Ben.

You've been here for almost a year,

You aren't a beginner.

Everybody calls me Ben

Hello Cliff!

Hello Eddie!

Your article is marvellous,

You will get another Pulitzer.

Will I see you tonight?

Give me a call later.

Sensationalist news don't keep a

Newspaper running

Is the little things,

what you write.

That's what brings life to

our pages,

The Obituaries?

I don't think so...

Hello boss!

Scupp, sensational article,

Sit down, I'll be right with you.

Hello Scupp!

Hello big guy!

How is it going?

We were talking about a more

important assignment for Richard

Very good, very good,


I'm convinced that I can

write a good article,

maybe, a politic theme,

something deep.

Third murder in closet,

Police is baffled.

The only reason why I

got this job...

Richard, nobody cares about

how you got this job.

Just a moment, chief,

Dick is right about that...

We never gave him an opportunity

he always gets the garbage.

And guys like me,

always get the chocolate candy.

Let's give him an opportunity.

Do you have something in mind?

Here Dic,

you can have my next assignment.

Scupp, I can't...

An important murder case

in Chestnut Hills.

Dick, 3 murders in one week,

All the bodies had

mysterious marks,

Of course it's not a

regular crime,

I think is a conspiracy

Right, chief?

Yes, I'm beginning to think so

It could be the article of the year,

Nobody has paid any attention to it,

It's all yours.

Are you going to let me

have your story?

It's my good act of the day.


Hoffman will take care of the

obituaries for a week or two.

All right boy, go for it.


This case is more than old!

Chestnut Hills sheriff's office.

10 P. A...

Hold it for a moment, please, sir.

Okay, go ahead now.

Do you want me to say it again?

What are you doing?

I record different sounds

for a school project.

Take this, it's for you.

No, thank you very much,

I'm not allowed to eat chocolate.

Two chocolate bars later.

See, you are Okay?

What is your project about?

Do you know what an

ultrasonic, energetic modulo is?

An ultrasonic, energetic modulo?

No, I have no idea.

If it worked it would be the end

of the energy problem.

Thank you As. Benett,

I'll think about what you said.

It seems crazy Sheriff, but

you should do it, Professor!

What are you doing?

Sorry lady, it's my fault.

I said, it would be okay to eat a

little bit of chocolate.

Who are you to think for me?

That's none of your business.

What is wrong about chocolate?

What is so bad about chocolate?

A, is bad for your teeth,

B, is bad for your liver,

And I would go on with the alphabet

If you were worth it.

You can poison your kids,

If you want to

But do me a favour, don't get close

to mine. Let's go.

Who is that?

A nut from the University,

She thinks that a snake is

responsible for all those crimes.

Is it from the Newspaper?

Richard Clarck

Sam Ketchit, come in.

A snake?

I told you she was nuts,

Have you seen that picture?

Two marks on each body,

done with a sharp object.

And that As. Bell, or whatever,

teaches biology at the University.

And she tells me that those marks

were done by a giant snake.

I've met a lot of crazy people.

But she is the worse by far.

Those holes, are

almost two centimetres wide.

Do you think a snake could do

something like that?


No one would be able to drag

Aari Lou around the room,

A snake couldn't take

Joe Septer's dog

and hang him from the closet's door.

No way, Ar. Clark.

It is not a snake.

It's more likely to be.

A crazy assassin

Sooner or later,

he will have a flow.

And when that happens

we will get him

This is where Aari Lou was killed,

I'll show you where we found her

Have you found an explanation

about the closets?

No, but we are working on it,

it's a matter of time,

Ay boys

are working double time.

The question is who and how,

we will find that pig.

Next-door building.

It's 14:
17 P.A.

The shower.

- Hello!

- Roy! You came back so early!

- I finished all my work.
