Maryland man wins $25,000 prize for for cracking the case
WASHINGTON, DC — The National Law Enforcement Museum at the Motorola Solutions Center is pleased to announce the winner of its Crimes UnCased: Queen of Diamonds promotion. Mr. Anthony Miller of Kensington, Maryland is the winner of the $25,000 prize. Miller was selected at random from a pool of entries from participants who correctly solved the Crimes UnCased mystery to identify the Queen of Diamonds.
“This was a really great experience,” said Miller. “I would not have known the Museum was as robust and fun if we had not participated in Crimes UnCased.” Miller, who visited the Museum with his wife and another couple, works for a government contracting firm in downtown Washington, DC near the Museum.
National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum CEO Marcia Ferranto presented Mr. Miller with his $25,000 check in person at the Museum on Friday, December 13. “The promotion was a great opportunity to introduce visitors to our Museum’s collection of artifacts in a unique and immersive way,” said Ferranto. “We hope that everyone who participated learned something new about the multi-faceted world of law enforcement through our one-of-a-kind Museum.”
Crimes UnCased: Queen of Diamonds allowed visitors to put their crime-solving skills to the test. Upon entering the Museum, visitors were given a “case file” introducing them to the Queen of Diamonds, a notorious criminal whose anonymous crew could only be identified by solving a series of puzzles embedded throughout the Museum’s exhibits.
The Crimes UnCased immersive experience was developed in conjunction with the Museum’s curatorial team and ran for ten weeks as a way to enrich the relationship between law enforcement and the community through a fun and engaging experience.
Mr. Miller plans to share his winnings with his friends who participated in the Crimes UnCased promotion with him. He says they may plan to take a nice trip together with the winnings.
