It turns out that Isabel, the canine arrested in the notorious Gift Box Bump, is soon to be released on a technicality.
Here is a photo taken just after her lawyer gave her the news.
In an exclusive interview, she pointed a paw at Buddy, her canine companion. Apparently, in recent weeks the two have experienced a falling out (not related to shedding).
Here they are, caught by a security camera in the aftermath of a beef heist last month:
Isabel is known to be ruthless with her victims, as evidenced by this recent photo (Mr. Lizard is still in a coma):
The technicality that allows Isabel to walk? Age. She is reportedly only sixteen weeks old. The D.A. pushed hard to try her as an adult, but the judge disagreed, saying, “Sixteen weeks? An adult? You have got to be kidding me.”
Judge Maya is known to be tough as nails so her decision has led to speculation. Is bribery involved?
Okay, guess who wins the Sherlock Holmes Award? Wyrdbyrd. I think Charlotte and YogaMum had it figured out but took pity on the perp and wouldn’t name names. Either that or the guilty party was blackmailing them. So wyrdbyrd put two and two together.
An arrest has been made of one Isabel. No last name.
It will be interesting to see if she manages to post bail, which is set at two hundred kongs—the highest ever set in this state for a canine. There is also suspicion of an accomplice. This office received an anonymous phone tip naming a co-conspirator: Buddy, an Australian Shepherd/Husky mix.
We will be watching this case closely.
In the meantime, the world is a safer place with sinister Isabel off the streets.
I decided to take a picture of the beautiful box my daughter decorated and gave me for Christmas (the photo doesn’t do it justice, unfortunately—it is gorgeous, with several types of wood and copper edging, and, as you can see, a picture of the two of us). I wanted to share my gift with y’all.
So I had the camera set and was peering through the viewfinder, just starting to press down my finger to shoot, when suddenly, the box was bumped off kilter by a party or parties unknown.
This is the evidence:
Quickly, I spun around and popped off another shot as the perp made a getaway. (There are two clues in the photo below—I spy a green and white disc on the floor behind the desk.)
What d’ya think? Who dunnit?
A Sherlock Holmes Certificate to the gumshoe with the zippiest (correct) answer.
