The Scandal

I walked into the school to see a dead body in the auditorium. Police surrounded the area. The body lay on the ground, outlined in chalk. FBI detectives asked questions about the person who died. My head was turning, thinking that a kid in our school is a murderer. I walked into English class to see that Mr. MacLaughlin was getting handcuffed. The police said he was the main suspect. 

My English teacher? A murderer? I had so many great memories with Mr. MacLaughlin. This was mysterious.
