Ok, so I was just watching someone start the game again and I noticed something. Lewis, The mayor of Pelican Town, makes the comment,"I've been the mayor for twenty years now!" or something like that. The thing that struck me was that it was exactly twenty years from the death of your grandfather.This could just be a coincidence in a very innocent game, but what if... As your farm grows you can get a significant amount of cash flow. Enough to maybe being so well off that you don't need to focus on farming as much anymore, enough to give you time enter into the running for mayor of your little town. Your good friend could very easily become bitter because it was his dream and it could drive him to drastic measures. I find it strange how no one talks about other would be mayors. Where they scared by the rumours surrounding the death of the previous runner. We see that Lewis, "as mayor", and "friend" of your grandfather has access to your house, he comes out of it in the starting scene. This may all be a random oversight but post your opinions or what you think might really be going on... IS PELICAN TOWN AS INNOCENT AS IT LOOKS?
