Kudzu Kids: Pooch Sleuths case recap
What's happened so far…
"There are so many. Too many, it seems to me," Miss Zina told them. They vowed to help their friend and find out why so many dogs had disappeared.
The first thing the Kudzu Kids did was go straight to the pet supply store where Miss Zina had seen the missing dog flyers. There, they talked to the store manager to see what he knew about the posters.
Later, the Kudzu Kids decided to make a map of all the places where the missing dogs lived to see if any kind of pattern emerged.
Using what they learned from their map, the Kudzu Kids set up shop in a place where they could talk to all the people whose dogs were missing.
The Kudzu Kids decided to find out more about Naomi Temple, so they went to her street and talked to her neighbors. Then with a little help, they were also able to talk to a few of Naomi's classmates from high school.
Next, Melody and Emma went to see Ms. Rickard's friend Susan Starks to try to get to the bottom of the mystery about Lucky.
Meanwhile, Rachel went to talk to Sarah Fogarty about her co-worker Joey Sims to find out more about him.
The Kudzu Kids took all the evidence they'd collected to Rachel's uncle, Detective Armstrong, and asked him to pursue the case.
After their conversation with Det. Armstrong, the Kudzu Kids went to update Miss Zina.
With renewed determination after their talk with Miss Zina, the Kudzu Kids set out to collect more evidence. They reviewed Miss Zina's list of suspicious vehicles that she'd seen in the neighborhood to see if they recognized anyone.
Then they used a covert detection technique they learned from Dr. Lamar to try to find out who's been visiting the vacant house across from Miss Zina's.
As part of trying to find out which of their suspects are involved in the dogs' disappearances, the Kudzu Kids went back to veterinary technician Joey Sims and to animal shelter volunteer Naomi Temple to get their reactions to a still image of the person in the security video.
Later, the Kudzu Kids went back to Dr. Lamar to get his advice on how they could identify who left the footprint in the Youngs' flower bed.
Shortly after they formulated their plan, the local gossip blog caught wind of it and helped spread the word.
When the Kudzu Kids checked the webcam they'd set up at Miss Zina's to watch the vacant house across the street, they found something very interesting in the video.
With that video and all the other evidence they'd collected in hand, the Kudzu Kids went back to Detective Armstrong and asked him to look into their top suspect in the dogs' disappearances.
Upon reviewing the Kudzu Kids' evidence, Detective Armstrong asked Carl Asher to come in for a conversation to find out if Mr. Asher had any answers for the questions that had come up.
