The Three Bears

OK, I admit I was at the house. I was just passing and saw the door open  and popped in. And yes I ate the porridge and may have accidentally broken one of their lousy chairs. Sure they were a bit angry when they came back and caught me napping in the kids bed, and we may have exchanged a few heated words, but you’ve got to believe me Inspector, when I left that place they were all very much alive. I’m telling you, as God is my witness, I know nothing about any poisoned pizza and three dead bears.

“Well Jones, what have you got?”

“Forensics say it’s definitely a human thigh bone. Stripped bare of flesh. Found in a waste bin in the kids play area on the Eastleigh estate. Forensics also confirmed it belongs to the torso we found yesterday in the woods that back on to the edge of the estate.”

“How are we doing with identifying it?”

“One possibility sir. A young girl has been reported missing. Name of Goldilocks. Seems she was in the habit of visiting some bears living in a cottage in the woods. I’ve got men out there checking it now.”
