Hi, I'm Carlie Hansen, and I am renowned through the whole of England for my detective skills. I just solved the case of the murder of Kayla Mae Rheims, 31, in Manchester last month.

Kayla Mae was shot in the stomach and died from her injuries half an hour later. The gun was left at the scene - her home - and had no traces of DNA. Clearly the murderer had planned it beforehand and worn gloves. The CCTV had been disabled, but it had picked up the noise of the murder. However, the voice of the murderer had been purposely muffled.

I was distressed at this, particularly because they had arrested someone who was clearly innocent. The milkman had been doing his rounds, and had heard the commotion. He had come into the house, seen Kayla Mae dying and rang an ambulance, but the police came too and arrested him. It was clear from several witness statements and CCTV cameras further up the road that this was true.

I was convinced the murderer was Dr. Brian Rheims, Kayla Mae's husband. I finally was able to gain access to the audio from the murder scene.

"Please, please, I swear it's yours..."
"NO! I know people round here. Give it up, I know it's not mine! You don't deserve it!"
"Oh God...Please, please, help me! Somebody! Help me!"
"God's not going to help you now! If it's not mine, then it can't be anyone's!"

Gunshot blasts.

It took a lot of thinking to figure that case out! Eventually, I managed to work out the culprit, and the motive for the murder.

Who killed Kayla Mae, and why?
