The Body in the Library

Summer at the library has started with a murder! On the morning of Friday, June 28, the body of noted local author Gregory Wallace was discovered at Munroe Library. Much is unknown at this time, but it seems as though the crime occurred shortly after an event celebrating the launch of his new book Caucus.

A source close to the investigation said that the victim was bludgeoned in the back of the head by a book, located nearby. The book, a reprint of Edgar Allan Poe Complete Tales and Poems, was inscribed by Gregory himself and appears to be his personal copy. Many people were in the library that night and, given the author's somewhat notorious reputation, motives are plentiful.

Did you crack the case?

Here's all the clues that were posted in the library, and the reveal -- "What Happened".
