Murder She Wrote

Jessica Fletcher is the one they should have been investigating. EVERYTIME she pays a visit someone gets killed.

From Bild.com:

Police track DNA of a cotton bud maker for two years

Police in Germany hunted a sinister phantom killer for two years after finding the same DNA at 39 different crime scenes - only to discover that the source was a woman who made the cotton buds used to collect the sample!

The case was one of the most puzzling in recent times. Hundreds of detectives in six specialist committees were set to work hunting the ominous female serial killer.

...yesterday Bernd Meiners, a spokesman for the public prosecutor's office in Saarbrucken, revealed: “There are considerable doubts about the existence of the ‘phantom killer’. The DNA has instead been linked to investigation materials.”

Wait, it took them TWO YEARS to figure this out?

On the other hand, for all they know, she actually DID kill one of the 39 and got away with the perfect crime.
