Mofo Case #15 Scotland Yard Investigates

GiGi's case has confounded Scotland Yard.

Sherlock Holmes: We know that the blogger did not leave through the window. 
Dr. Watson: Yes, it seems that a careful investigation of the blogger's kitchen reveals that she almost never even left her kitchen.
Sherlock Holmes: Except to go to a fresh produce market.
Dr. Watson: Or Trader Joe's. We will have to follow her footprints.
Sherlock Holmes: Keep in mind Watson that this blogger's footprints will be quite different. Vegans do not wear leather and the tracks they leave are extraordinary.
Dr.Watson: And she loathes Crocs.
Sherlock Holmes: Elementary my dear Watson, elementary.
Dr. Watson: Some tea, sir?
Sherlock Holmes: Lapsang Souchang please, oh and some 7% solution, Doctor.
