I'm Tom Arriola, the site Mastermind, and I've been asked to tell you about what went into the making of these photos. This week, we'll be posting photos daily with behind-the-scenes commentary.

The idea of involving an Elvis tribute artist in a case came to me when El Vez, the Mexican Elvis tribute artist, came to Oxford, Mississippi. It was easy to come up with the of an Elvis-based Crime Scene case. It was more difficult to find our own Elvis tribute artist.

We cast the actors in these cases by posting audition notices or through an arrangement we maintain with an acting studio. In this instance, I knew of a kooky local torch singer who ran a coffee shop where she entertained customers all through the morning shift.

I'd heard her use her Elvis voice to say "Thank you. Thank very much." And I'd seen her unrestrained performances on stage. I just had to work up the courage to say, "You look like you could be my Elvis tribute artist."

First of all I'll like to say how cool it has been to have an Elvis-themed case
to work with. My dad is a huge fan and we'll often go to see Graceland. Not the
real deal though. In a town called Randers here in Denmark, this super-fan has managed
to get his own miniature version of it built; fully equipped with museum, shop and diner.

Rose Marie Pearson is my favourite character in this case. The casting for a character
like her couldnt have been more perfect - she really looks phenomenal, so Im glad
you asked her to be your tribute artist!

Can you tell us all the name of the café she works at?

Hopefully its still around by the time I get the chance to visit, I've always wanted
to go on a roadtrip through the states
