Help Detective Dodd Solve the Mystery

The 911 operator dreaded calling Detective Dodd, but he had no other choice. A crime has been committed on Main St. and he had to dispatch the police. Unfortunately, the caller was so hysterical that the operator could only make out a few details, and he was missing a crucial piece of information to pass on to the detective…where the crime occurred.

The operator learned that the victim’s name was Cathy and that she was one of 9 business owners with a storefront on Main Street.

A few minutes later, Detective Dodd parked his cruiser and studied both sides of Main Street.  There were 4 businesses on one side and 5 on the other. He grabbed one of the Tourist maps in a stand on the corner and pulled out his pencil.

Then he re-read the 911 Operator’s report.  With some thought, he knew he could figure out where the crime had taken place. Follow along and see if you can figure it out too.
