Mr. H.G. Wells will never remember his last visit to the Norman Public Library, after he was the victim of a murder last month.
And he was cut down by, of all people, infamous actress Mae West.
Luckily, the 35 teens who stayed the night for the library’s murder mystery lock-in were able to get the mystery solved.
Teens dressed as different characters and worked to solve the mystery, eventually catching the fiend. It seems Ms. West was angry at Mr. Wells for using his time machine to bring her into a future that “didn’t have any romance to it.”
During the mystery, the teens took part in a costume contest, a middle-of-the-night dinner and had time to roam the library during a scavenger hunt.
Teens were locked into the library from 11 p.m. until 7 a.m. the following morning.
The event, originally scheduled for March, had been pushed back due to a snowstorm.
