Carnival of Crime

I always thought a carnival was the perfect place for crime. A body in the tilt-a-whirl left to run all night.

Wouldn't someone know? Not if the carny running the game sometime started it and ran it in the middle of the night. He';s a carny, after all. He's not locking the library early. He's on the road for adventure. (I know of a couple - saved a ton then went to school).

Then, get the carny juiced or off with a local girl or gone two towns over to catch a band and ...

Small town. Backwater. Dead guy.

Someone had to move fast. Why put them in the ride instead of in the woods? What is the connection - is there one?

It's a topic for noir of the backwoods.

I might have to write that story this winter.
