It's a whodunit of the rarest of degree ... a real meaty mystery with high steaks: someone very saucy has been hiding bottles of A.1. Steak Sauce throughout the Avon Lake Public Library in Ohio, and nobody knows why.
Dan Cotton, the library’s page supervisor, said 28 of the 10-ounce bottles have turned up since he found the first one Jan. 11 hidden among the library’s newspapers.
No one has been spotted hiding the bottles, but it’s become almost a game among library staff to locate the bottles, which are typically left lying on their sides behind books on the shelf.
“It became something everyone wanted to find,” Cotton said. ...
“We mapped the first 12 to see if we could find a pattern, but we couldn’t find a discernible pattern,” Cotton said.
Brad Dicken of the Chronicle-Telegram has the nifty story. I propose a steak-out to find the culprit!
