Welcome to another edition of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre. In this episode, we bring you a who-dun-it, a mixed-up murder mystery by Stephen Leacock. Oddly enough, it's entitled, "Who Do You Think Did It, or The Mixed-Up Murder Mystery."

Before we begin our story, we should inform the audience that Mr. Leacock added a prefatory note to this tale, stating that anyone who correctly guesses who did it is entitled a beautiful gold watch. They should collect this watch from their spouse or another close relative.
