Hello says the Mystery Writer, waves a bloody shovel merrily about how are all you fine folks today?
Let’s say you murdered somebody and you didn’t want to bury them in the backyard with all the others, letting her get all smelly and rotten and stuff. So you made a nice bed of ice and packed her inside the new chest freezer you bought on sale at Lowes. Then you sealed up the room, so no one would find your treasure and made your exits and entrances through the dumbwaiter.
How much would your power bill go up with having this secret freezer constantly running? Could a household member or servant discover your secret via the mysteriously high electric bill?
