The World's Shortest Mystery, A Puzzle

A number of years back I sent off The World's Shortest Mystery to several mystery magazines without success. When I submitted it to Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine I thought I might get a pro-rated check for 2.5 cents. No such luck.

So, here it is, a mystery puzzle in two letters with punctuation. In it, we have an event and a suspect. Scroll down for the solution.

Dot missed her period. Question Mark.
