At precisely 10:30 A.M. I got a call from a Mr. Machiano saying while

renovating a palazzo his men found the bones of a human. When I got to

the scene one of his employees showed me to the bones. The clothes were

still on the carcass. I asked Mr. Machiano how the body was discovered,

"My men were knocking down the walls and one of them found a skeleton

with its clothes on, and that's when I called you." I asked whom he

bought the palace from. "A man I would say in his early eighties, named

Montresor." I then left to learn about this person.. I found out that

he is living with a cousin right near his old home. I decided to stop

by and ask him a few questions hoping he will remember or know

something. After about an hour of getting "I do not know. What are you

talking about? Please leave." I realized this was a waste of time and

decided to go.

Later that night while eating dinner I decided the next morning I would

go back to the crime scene to check for clues. The next morning I

called Mr. Machiano and asked him to meet me at the palazzo. As I

approached the body I began to feel a little queasy from last night's

dinner but luckily I brought some herbal tea to help soothe my stomach.

Anyway, I began to search the ground around the body hoping to find some

clues. I noticed a gold bracelet on the ground near the body, and it

read Montrsor. I decided to do a little more research on this man. I

went to the station and asked the secretary to show me the file on any

person missing for more than 20 years. The list only had about five

people on it with a brief description. There was a man by the name of

Fortunato on it who has been missing for about 50 years. He was last

seen wearing a motley. I then put two and two together and after some

investigation, I found out that the carcass was indeed Fortunato. Later

that afternoon I decided to visit Mrs. Fortunato. She took the news

pretty well, but I guess she had a feeling he was dead She said "The

last time I saw him was fifty years ago during carnival season."

I went back to Montresor's house and told him that "Next to Fortunato's

body was a gold bracelet with your name on it." He still claimed to

have nothing to do with the murder and had no idea how his bracelet got

near the body. "It must have fallen off and sunk into the mortar."

When I said that I could sense his nervousness. I asked him if he was

okay, then I heard him mumble something. I asked him to say that louder

I could not quite hear that. He said "I killed him, and I do not even

regret it." He kept the murder a secret all these years because he did

not want to go to jail. "Now you are definitely going to jail." I felt

kind of bad bringing an eighty year old person to jail, but I had no



Four years later Montresor died. The Trumpino Towers was completed and

a big success!
