The trial of deceased alleged goat murderer David L. Johnson began today at Wizengamblingproblem, the highest Wizarding court. The main question of the trial was: How did Johnson kill Alfred the Goat, popular author of the Ellipses series of young adult novels, when he was deceased himself? The prosecution raised numerous theories of how the defendent could have committed the murder. The first of these was the possibility of reanimation. A coroner's report revealed that Johnson's corpse had not been reanimated since at least 72 hours after the murder, when the Firewood Institute was investigating his death. The coroner is still searching for the true method of murder.
