Who Killed the High school’s hated football coach? December 18, 2014

Filed under: Mystery and Ghost Stories — lpitrak @ 2:40 pm

High school senior Millie stumbles across the dead body of her school’s (very much despised) football coach, Buzz KillHollerin’ Hank.  Even though the suspect list is a mile long, her father becomes the main suspect in his death.  Millie decides she needs to channel Nancy Drew and investigate the coach’s murder herself.  Millie, with the help from the hot new transfer student, Chase (who she’s not really sure she can trust), pokes around Hollerin’ Hank’s life to try to clear her father before the body count rises any higher.
