When asked to comment on this shocking crime, neighboring mantis Big Bertha declined to speak to Stellar Four News. She merely burrowed deeper into the flower patch beneath the ash tree, munching a disembodied bee head. Unofficial sources say that Bertha is, if not a suspect, then at least a mantis of interest.
In other (completely unrelated!) news, Big Bertha has sent birth announcements to all her female mantis friends. The eggs will be put into a durable sack and will then hatch out in the spring.
