    MEET THE SUSPECTS

    Henry Bolet Jr.
    Henry's parents passed away while he was young and he was sent to live with his great-uncle Bruno. Bruno acted as his guardian, but he never spent much time with Henry, although he left him a sizable portion of his estate. Could emotional and cunning Henry schemed to control his last living relative's assets and secrets?

    Lamont Warrick
    Lamont Warrick loves his job. He’s the proud owner of Zeke’s, a colorful curio shop crammed with unusual and eclectic merchandise. He's always looking for treasure amongst another person's junk - it's a great way to make a quick buck. There are a few precious items that are authentic antiques, priceless pieces he likes to procure. A crystal skull would attract a lot of buyers - and a lot of money...

    Renee Amande
    Renee Amande WAS the housekeeper for Bruno Bolet and practices naturopathy. Since she spent so much time in his presence, she also knows a lot of his secrets - dark secrets he didn't want anyone to know, but others would have killed to discover. Would she have resorted to murder just to possess a mystical skull?

    Gilbert Buford
    Gilbert Buford found the unconscious body of his friend, Bruno Bolet. He also happened to be Bruno’s personal physician and declared that no autopsy was necessary. And as Bruno’s confidant, he knew that Bruno owned a mystical artifact believed gave him immortality. In his old age, Gilbert certainly could use a crystal skull to improve his own chances of cheating death…
