Scrooge McDuck solves Crime

2 posts in this topic

On July 13, a Hartford, Conn. man named Miguel Rodriguez was killed in a street-corner shooting that initially baffled police. Eventually, though, investigators came up with a lead: When he died, Rodriguez had been wearing a distinctive gold chain and medallion featuring the likeness of Scrooge McDuck, the Disney character known for his great wealth and avarice, and for his habit of bathing in a pool of gold coins. Though Scrooge McDuck-themed trinkets are a dime a dozen in Duckburg, they’re relatively rare in Hartford, and detectives theorized that finding the jewelry might help them find the killer.

Sure enough, the cops located the items at a local second-hand shop. And since Connecticut state law requires pawn and second-hand shops to record the names and addresses of the people with whom they do business, the cops were also able to locate the man who allegedly sold it: a habitual criminal named Lorenza Christian. From there, as David Owens at the Hartford Courant reports, it was only a matter of time before they linked the murder to Christian and an associate, Tyquan Turner, who was allegedly the one who pulled the trigger. Both men are currently being held on seven-figure bonds: a pittance for the world’s wealthiest duck, but a fortune for an uncautious schnook from Hartford.
