School Slammed for Staging 'Elf Murder Mystery'

An elementary school in England is under fire after students  participated in an 'elf murder mystery' activity that some parents say  was a tad too realistic. According to a local newspaper,  the strange 'game' took place earlier this week at the Flowery Field  Primary School in the town of Hyde. It was there that a fourth grade  classroom had been transformed overnight into a virtual crime scene  depicting the aftermath of a rather gruesome elf slaying.

Cordoned off with police tape, the classroom contained the outline of a  murdered elf's body on the floor along with fake blood smeared on some  desks and the words 'I hate Christmas' scrawled on the window. The  students were encouraged to collect the clues and decipher who had  killed the iconic holiday character as part of a writing project. As one  can imagine, some of their parents were not exactly thrilled with the  school's unorthodox exercise.
