A true-crime blogger has found a real-life mystery — albeit a harmless one — and is crowdsourcing the solution.
The New York Times reports that Alice de Sturler, who lives in Virginia, found a sweet drawing from a child to their "mum" for Mother's Day in a used copy of The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie.
Fortunately, the book contained a clue — specifically, a checkout card from Norfolk Libraries in Norfolk, England.
A British friend reached out to the BBC in Norfolk, on de Sturler's behalf, and the BBC journalist who covered the story now has the Mother's Day card in her possession, giving hope that the card and its recipient can be reunited.
For more on the curious case of the British Mother's Day card that traveled across the Atlantic, head to the NY Times.
