  • Pickerington Murder Mystery Night


  • In the quaint bedroom community of Pickerington, where life ebbs and flows with the gentle predictability of the seasons, an imposter lurks. Living among us, under the guise of neighbor, respected Chamber member, and friend, is none other than the infamous jewel thief, “The Nightingale,” member of a notorious international crew whose heists have dazzled and baffled law enforcement around the world.

    No one has ever seen The Nightingale—aside from their crew. They have chosen our town as a place to lie low, to blend in, until the heat subsides from their last spectacular heist—the daring theft of the legendary and priceless Empress’ Heart.

    An Interpol agent has come to town, identifying a list of community members suspected of being acquainted with the criminal fraternity. And the situation becomes even more dire when a dead body is discovered in the parking lot of City Hall...


    We ask you—members of the community—to form your own team of investigators for $60/team of four ($15 for additional team members).


    On July 27, 4-8 p.m., your team can wander Olde Pickerington Village, interrogating suspects, visiting clue stations and businesses, getting tips from real detectives, solving puzzles, and obtaining CSI analysis. Can you identify the imposter and solve the crime?


    REGISTER YOUR TEAM HERE! Teams who register by July 10 will receive detective kits and swag bags for each member. Register later/onsite, and supplies may vary.

    Each month, Pickerington Online will reveal new suspects involved in the Pickerington Murder Mystery Night.

    Follow the Pickerington Area Chamber on Facebook and Instagram as the mystery unravels. We need your help, before even more secrets (and bodies) are buried. Win prizes too!

    Suspect #2: Roger Picket
    Capitol Fence
    Is this Fence Company magnate capitalizing on other "fencing" opportunities... offloading stolen goods while looking for new scores?
