If it’s not Nanny Alicia snooping around then its work that’s been interrupting Laura’s love life. And, frankly, our detective is starting to get sick of it. You see she hadn’t seen Tony in weeks and just when they were about to finally get busy –worked called yet again. Apparently, a young college freshman had been drugged and dumped and so now the detectives were asked to look into the sorority she was pledging.

It seems the victim, Caroline, was pledging at a college all the way out in Long Island but for some reason, as part of their hazing process, the pledge master drove her all the way to Manhattan without any money or shoes and she was just supposed to make her own way back. Thankfully, though, one of her future sisters had actually given her a train ticket. So, later this same sister was willing to explain to the detectives why the hazing was so drastic for Caroline. And it looks like someone inside of the Greek house had a grudge against the victim.

It seems that before she had even pledge, Caroline was supposed to be a shoo-in. Her mother had belonged to the sorority and so Caroline was a legacy. But the legacy she had sadly inherited was what came back to bite her.

Because it was Caroline’s mother that had made enemies back in her day as pledge master and, in this case, the alumni sister that always seemed to be hanging around was one of those enemies. For it was Caroline’s mother that made her life, as a pledge, pure hell. And thus she was the one that was, as until recently, making Caroline’s life extremely difficult.

However she didn’t kill Caroline and it was Caroline’s time of death that cleared her. Because while she was drugged, the drug she was injected with took hours to kill her. Meaning whoever got to Caroline did so when she was at work.

Even though she was a freshman in college, Caroline was interning at big tech company in the city and according to pretty much every one the detectives talked to – there wasn’t anyone that didn’t like Caroline. She was pretty, she was popular, and she was smart. Yet did someone kill Caroline when they found her to be too popular?

Unbeknownst to mostly everyone, there was a blog online about Caroline’s life. And it wasn’t just any old blog either. It was a mixture of tech savvy intelligence and soft-core porn because not only was Caroline smart but she was also sleeping with a married CEO. So the website went into a lot of details.

And it made her married lover’s wife look guilty. The blog hinted the wife was onto the affair and when the woman was later questioned by the police – she admitted to knowing about it. And at first her husband’s affair with an intern hurt her. However they were able to overcome it after he signed a document nullifying their pre-nup. So things were back to being all good between them.

But then the wife said something really odd when she was shown some of the blog entries.

She said that if Caroline wrote that then she must have been lying because half of the encounters listed – the wife claims her husband was with her. So Laura and more importantly Max looked into this blog and though it was loosely based on Caroline’s life – whoever wrote it also took creative liberties.

Linda, Caroline’s friend, as it turns out was slightly jealous of Caroline’s life. So, while she was online, she pretended to be Caroline. Then when Caroline found out what she was doing – Linda began making up details seeing as her friend no longer wanted to talk to her.

Though, she didn’t kill Caroline either. She simply stole her life and added embellishments.

So if it wasn’t the wife, the jealous friend or the lover that was out of town then who else could it have been. Well, there was a third person that was jealous of Caroline’s relationship with her boss and it was the boss’s business partner. It seems he was frightened she was going to convince her boyfriend to make her partner. And, seeing as he was already listening to Caroline’s ideas; the partner killed her with his medication.

It was a pointless death and it brought along with it unnecessary paperwork. But, luckily, Laura found time to see Tony in the few hours she was free.
