Fender BenderMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
"Jon Banks doesn't look much like a murderer," said Sheriff Frost as a young man emerged from the farmhouse carrying a naked baby boy.
The sheriff stopped the patrol car behind Banks' yellow Sedan. He drew his pistol, whispered to Dr. Smith to wait, and called: "Raise your hands, Jon!"
Banks halted, amazed. He set his infant son carefully on the fender of his car and lifted his hands. "What's it all about, Sheriff?"
"Murder. We have a witness who says you entered Moose Long's bar last night after closing. Half an hour later, Mrs. Long found Moose strangled to death with a yellow scarf."
"That's a lie. Why --"
"Look out!" cried Smith, as the baby scampered onto the yellow hood. Cooing happily, he attempted to stand. Smith just saved him from toppling to the ground.
"The witness is mistaken, Sheriff," Banks resumed calmly. "I've been in this car driving down from Philadelphia since eight o'clock last night. I just arrived five minutes ago."
The sheriff looked at his watch. "Then you drove the six hundred miles between Philly and here in a little over twelve hours," he said dubiously.
"Can you prove I didn't?" snapped Banks.
"Nothing could be easier," declared Smith.
