Chapter 6: Murder Most Fowl

CLIPPING: Murder Most Fowl

The city was shocked today by a senseless murder among the birderati. Cock Robin, the dynamic pilot and author, was shot to death by an arrow through the heart this morning as he was leaving the funeral of the popular cockfighter, "The Barnyard Brawler." Mr. Robin had escorted his recent bride, the celebrated actress, La Pulcina Piccola to pay their respects to the fallen pugilist who recently suffered his tragic death in the ring. It was common knowledge that La Pulcina Piccola and the Brawler had been more than just friends. Now she has lost not one friend but two. Police are investigating the Sparrow's whereabouts at the time of the murder.
