A Murder Again After 60 Years - Any Ideas?
 
Hello all!

First, let me say I absolutely adore all of you! This place is great! Perfect for people like us with strange fixations ;)

Ok, to my problem. I started writing a murder mystery that has a time-twist. That's to say, the actual murder takes place in the 1940's, but until my heroine inherits a house and discovers the remains of the bodies approx. 2003-2004, no one has even known there's been a crime. It was a crime of passion, two people killed, a young woman and a young man.

As my home-baked sleuth starts to look into this crime, and finds out a little too much, someone tries to get rid of her.

I think I know who did the murders back in the forties, but she's an old lady by now, and I don't think she's in any condition (mentally or physically) to carry on murdering people. So who the heck is this person who's after my heroine for finding out too much? Who is he/she, and why is he/she doing this?

Any ideas, thoughts, or comments will be greatly appreciated.
