3.5 Randall is terrible and his family aren't nice either
Can we say "obstruction of justice", thought you could. Today this would have got dealt with in a different way (I'd kinda like Randall to meet Peter Grant for a few rounds of debate).

3.0 My first filled square!
I had been sort of planning to use this one for the free square, but since OBD called "cozy mystery" this morning, and nothing could be cozier than this mystery, I can't resist actually filling a square!
