Circumstances: Steve ordered a takeout ground beef patty at Olive Garden restaurant for Chelsea, the household pet.
Said ground beef patty was transported in a Styrofoam box from Olive Garden to the home of Steve and Carol Ann. Half of the ground beef patty was cut in pieces and presented to Chelsea on a paper plate. Another quarter of the patty was likewise cut up and given to Chelsea as a night snack. The remaining one-quarter ground beef patty, intended as breakfast for Chelsea, was reported missing by the pet owners. Chelsea, although appearing innocent, was designated as a person of interest in this case.
Investigation revealed that no Styrofoam box could be found in any part of the refrigerator. A search of the household trash proved that it held no Styrofoam box of any kind. A search of the entire home turned up no Styrofoam box. Pet owners, Steve and Carol Ann, stated that Chelsea had never eaten a Styrofoam box before and they doubted that she ate this one.
Since there was no evidence that a Styrofoam box from Olive Garden containing a ground beef patty ever existed, this case was closed and filed under unsolved mysteries.
Carol Ann donated her leftover pasta with marinara sauce to Chelsea for breakfast.
