THE KILLER NASHVILLE C. AUGUSTE DUPIN CRIME SCENE
One of the Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference’s most popular annual features is the Killer Nashville C. Auguste Dupin Detective Award Crime Scene staged by former Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) Assistant Director Dan Royse.
The crime scene is based on real-world exercises conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to train new Special Agents.
Attendees gather clues and try to solve the case.
The person who best interprets the clues and solves the murder wins the Killer Nashville C. Auguste Dupin Detective Award, which includes a heavily discounted registration to the next year’s Killer Nashville International Writers’ Conference.
There is no fee to play but you must be registered for the Killer Nashville conference.
