Definitely Poe. Dickens is the most innocent literary icon I have ever beheld. ;)

Clearly it was a suicide to upstage Rodney King... BTW, so glad to know that someone played Murder Mystery Barbie besides me...

Dickens could have handled her; Shakespeare would have un-Barbied her.

My daughter is always asked me about barbie collection and yet I didn't buy her.Know I understand why she's longing for this toy and it seems I start to like it too even I'm too old for it just a collection.

It was definitely Sophie. She's too scared to say anything but it was an accident. She tells Theresa the terrifying details and to protect Sophie pins the death on Poe who is the most likely suspect of the bunch. Poe refuses to talk only because of his naturally stern disposition.
