When this many people are aware of a terrible event, it's going to be hard to keep them on the same page. Because the victim (who is now buried) was seen at an convenience store, the police are in the area. Reporters are also there for an entirely different reason. The families begin to fight among themselves, launching accusations. Some of it is utterly unfair. This will be fun because there are so many suspects. I imagine, like any good mystery story, the plot will produce even more. There are also some subplots, including a drug sale to get money to pay for an operation and an elderly lady who wants one of the family members to do a mercy killing.
