  • Three Blind Mice
  • See how they run
  • See how they run
  • They all ran after the farmer's wife
  • She cut off their tails with a carving knife
  • Did you ever see such a sight in your life
  • As
  • Three Blind Mice

Molly said, "There's something more you haven't told us yet, isn't there, Sergeant?"

"Yes, madam. At the top of the page in the notebook was written, 'Three Blind Mice.' Pinned to the dead woman's body was a paper with 'This is the first' written on it. And below it a drawing of three mice and a bar of music. The music was the tune of the nursery rhyme 'Three Blind Mice.'"

Molly sang softly:

  • "Three Blind Mice,
  • See how they run.
  • They all ran after the farmer's wife!
  • She -"

She broke off. "Oh, it's horrible - horrible. There were three children, weren't there?"

"Yes, Mrs Davis. A boy of fifteen, a girl of fourteen, and the boy of twelve who died."
