There was no mystery to the culprit in 2021 when it came to a murder mystery event planned for February in Baker.
It wasn’t the butler – it was COVID-19 that killed the mystery.
The Friends of FMC Foundation had scheduled a dinner-mystery event for the fall of 2020, then rescheduled it to be Feb. 13 in the Exhibit Hall at the Fallon County Fairgrounds.
But, “I Love the 80s to Death!” didn’t make it.
It died in January when the event was canceled.
According to Karol Zachmann, one of the event organizers, the decision has been made and the cancellation announced on her Facebook page.
“Their Denver troupe (which is where our actors would be coming from) is now officially closed and will possibly reopen in the next several months, but they are unsure when it will be when they have actors who are comfortable working in this area again. The actors can’t come from Minneapolis due to the state mandate is requiring them to quarantine for 14 days if they leave the state and their actors just don’t want to go through that,” she said in the Facebook post.
According to Zachmann, about 100 tickets had already been sold by Monday, but the event had to be canceled a day later.
