Murdering the Classics: Who Killed Jacob Grimm?

Who Murdered Jacob Grimm?

Such sad tidings have never before been told in the enchanted realm of the Grimm Fairy Tales. Jacob Grimm, whom all thought died peacefully in his sleep, was in actuality strangled. When exhuming his body to place a new tombstone above his grave, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves discovered the marks of two small feminine hands around Jacob Grimm’s throat. These marks are only visible to the enchanted inhabitants of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. They could only have been made by a villainess from the tales. To honor Jacob Grimm, we must solve the mystery of his murder! Suspects include: Snow White’s mother, Cinderella’s stepmother, Rapunzel’s witch, Hansel and Gretel’s witch, Sleeping Beauty’s evil fairy, the werewolf from Red Riding Hood, the handmaid in The Princess Who Became a Goose Girl, and the wife from The Fisherman and His Wife.
