I'm trying to write a mystery on an isolated island. Seven folks are on the island. Where could I get a few clue ideas. I'm thinking of murders that mirror famous movie killings, a la the Psycho shower stabbing. What clues might be left from such murders? The crime must be solved without any lab. Clues, clues, clues!
