Murder Mystery Valentine's Ball - 1986

Valentines Murder Mystery Ball plot explanation
"Newspaper" (next morning's edition) handed out as guests left the party, to explain the murder plot summary.
9 elaborate "scenes" were acted by a cast of 10 which each gave hints for the murder plot. Our favorite was the seance scene. Party Goers submitted their guess on ballots and a prize was awarded for the correct murder ID.
The second murder happened during the Heart Songs (there's always a musical presentation of some type at these parties) "Killing Me Softly" (sung by Kayla Werlin).
