1 On a dark and stormy night, Able, age 13 and Bonnie, age 15, discussed how great it would be if they  had some money to spend on their weekend trip to the beach.  They consulted Clyde, age 21, knowing that he  was very sneaky and knowing he would easily come up with a plan for money.  The three agreed that they  would go to the home of their neighbor (Nelly hereafter), take a $2000 vase from the living room, and sell it for  $750, leaving them each with $250 dollars.  All agreed that Clyde would get the vase. Clyde immediately walked to the neighbor’s front door and opened the window.  Clyde crawled in and  noticed that the vase was not there.  Knowing that he needed something of value, he looked around and noticed  a pure gold statue.  He picked up the statue, but he was interrupted when Nelly walked down the steps and  confronted Clyde with a gun.  Clyde was frightened, and he immediately threw the statue at Nelly’s head, but it  missed and struck Nelly’s husband, Hank, killing him instantly.  Clyde ran out of the house, but keeping his  wits, grabbed an antique candleholder as he fled the scene.  Nelly saw that her husband was dead and had a  sudden heart attack as a result.   Clyde came back to the house and told Able and Bonnie about the events.  They agreed to burn the  house down to hide the evidence.  They went to their own garage and found a gas can, took some matches, and

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
