“She carr[ies] the meat into the kitchen, place[s] it in a pan, turn[es] the oven on high, and shov[es] it inside” (Dahl 13). Therefore, concealing the evidence as no one would expect a cooking lamb as the murder weapon. Unquestionably, it is crucial to get rid of the murder weapon as fast as possible because it can be traced back to Mary. As has been noted, cooking the lamb directs wariness away from it. In fact, the cops were hinting the murder weapon should be sort of big club and indeed, the lamb’s frozen state does resemble that sort.

Also in the story, Mary says, “God bless his soul if I allowed you to remain in his house without offering decent hospitality. Why don’t you eat up that lamb that’s in the oven.” Comparable is when Jesus said, “do this in remembrance of Me” because the cooked lamb signifies Patrick and his demise.
