The suspense is over, O'boro's Murder Mystery Fest is a no go

OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Owensboro's annual International Murder Mystery Festival is a no go this year.

A news release sent out late Wednesday afternoon explains organizers could not find the funding needed to put it on. The festival has seen some big stars in the past including actor Gene Hackman. 

"Unfortunately we are looking at $100,000 minimum investment to put on a festival that is anywhere comparable to the caliber of the festivals that we've produced in the past," says Roxi Witt, the RiverPark Center Executive Director.

The RiverPark Center says they plan to have the Mystery Writers Festival in 2014.
