How do Murder Mystery Parties work?!

Question: How do Murder Mystery Parties work?
I want to have one, but write the script myself. (I want to make it Harry Potter themed.) But I've never actually been to one, so I have no idea how they work, or even what type of things you'd write on the script. I'd invite about 7 people.

So how do they work? How do you write the script?

Open entering your door, a chosen relative can quickly and effectively murder the first guest to arrive by choice of weapon - something that doesn't have any evidence, such as an ice knife to the throat.

Or, you could use a sleeping draught or something to that effect. Locking the victim in the bathroom is not ideal - they will be able to escape - so it is suggested you put that body in a black bin bag (or something stronger as a bin bag might tear easily if the victim has long nails) tied up and gagged and hidden in a very unsuspecting place - I recommend at the bottom of the garden, or even better, in the boot of an old car driven somewhere far away such as a field or dump.

Then, you set a timer for approx. 2 hours. (Or longer - you could do it from dusk til Midnight for the creepy, moonlight effect) The party guests have 2 hours to find the clues (there are none) around the house which will lead to the dead/or drugged party member's whereabouts.

Set up each room a different place of torture - be as creative as you can! The bloodier the rooms the better.

Those who do not find the clues will be murdered horrifically when the timer stops.
(This method works best unscripted)
