    I see no sign of a bullet hole. How close is Tracy to the body?

    Well I think that’s supposed to be blood under the body, so that’s a clue.

    It would be a more interesting murder if she’d been strangled, but one can’t have everything.

    Why not shoot a trapeze artist? Are they immune to murder? She should have the same reasons for getting murdered anyone else would have.

    “No! She’s been SHOT!” “Oh, good, I thought she was dead.” Rimshot

    Yes, it’s a good thing we’re told in boldface that she was SHOT, because she sure looks shot, what with that gaping hole in her and all the blood. I don’t blame Locher for this; it’s always confounded me that comic strips have such restrictive censorship compared to other media. They can’t even show guns as they’re being fired.

    I have, however, use my own detective skills to deduce that the trapeze artist has had some… ahem… work done. Real ones don’t stand up while their owner lies down (nice viewpoint, Brozman).

    In panel 1, with Dick’s eyes always drawn as if they’re shut, it’s unsettling to see them when they’re actually supposed to be shut.

    When people go “splat” they bleed also, so unless there is a gaping hole in her (stop it) a casual examination may not reveal that she was shot. And as to why the trapeze artist was shot, The “Flying Graysons” and Boston Brand were murdered during their performances.

    “Who would shoot a trapeze performer?”

    Why, it’s obvious that she was shot by Eyebrows, the master criminal! Look, he’s standing right there by the murder victim, and–

    Oh, that’s Tracy? Sorry, my mistake.

    Hey Tracy, call for backup and secure the crime scene. Oh that’s right…backup will never show up and people will come and go from the Big Top and NO ONE will be questioned. Police work at its finest!!

    Nice post Maxine. For a few seconds there I thought you had found the missing Villain, until I realized it was just Groucho Marx.

    As I’ve noted before this must be a Locher Mystery, always a convenient plot to AVOID the creation of an interesting Rogue. You’d think he’d give Brozman a shot at displaying his creative skills in the Gouldian genre.

    Why would anyone shoot a trapeze artist when there are so many clowns around?
