Hello, travelers! My name is Benjamin Franklin and I need your help. You may know me as one of America's most well-known printers, publishers, inventors, scientists, and diplomats. Maybe you once learned about my escapades with the key and the kite during the lightning storm?

Anyway, today I am an investigator and I need you to be my partner. We've discovered a dead body, murdered in cold blood, and all we know is that one of the Founding Fathers is the culprit. Can you help identify the killer?
