Murder Mystery Masquerade

Why a Murder Mystery? and Why Long Point? Actually there have been two murder mysteries associated with this part of the Island.

     ​In 1872 Elizebeth Selfe disappeared from her home and her body was found washed up on the shore. Islanders firmly believed she was the victim of foul play.

     In 1984 Thomas Hoyt Jones Jr., who lived at the tip of Long Point, was murdered. His assailant was found and convicted.
