For those who are still mourning the end of The Office, a 1o minute short was released on the show's official YouTube channel with a Making A Murder parody entitled Making A Strangler.
The video tackles the question swirling among the shows fans around the idea Toby Flenderson could have been the Scranton Strangler.
In what must have been a painstaking task, the creators of the video compiled numerous clips from the show piecing together a story line that may or may not answer all the questions.
View the clip below and judge for yourself. Is he or isn't he?
One fan of the show, Twitter user Spencer McClure certainly had some theories and took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the Scranton Strangler.

Toby had a failed marriage, was divorced, and struggles to form a relationship with his daughter. He developed a crush on Pam, and felt optimistic after she split with Roy and even asked her out. However, he was forced to watch her fall in love with Jim. pic.twitter.com/iwemPnDTq3
This is where things get good... The Scranton Strangler was introduced in Season 6, when Pam and Jim have their baby. An obviously frustrating day for Toby.— Spencer McClure (@spencermcclure_) March 11, 2018
Later in the series, the crew was at a church for Cece’s Christening. Toby had a noticeably difficult time going into the church, suggesting a guilty conscious. When he eventually went in he started asking God why he was always so mean to him. pic.twitter.com/MjHJmVNPZk— Spencer McClure (@spencermcclure_) March 11, 2018
Consumed with guilt, Toby goes to visit the man he deemed guilty. The seen of the interaction was never shown, but instead had Toby leaving in a neck brace. Viewers assumed that this meant it was really the strangler, yet I disagree pic.twitter.com/SUEOCG1RJ6— Spencer McClure (@spencermcclure_) March 11, 2018
Toby either faked the attack, or he confessed to the man in prison that he was the real Scranton Strangler, and the man attacked him out of anger for his false imprisonment.— Spencer McClure (@spencermcclure_) March 11, 2018
Whew! That was exhaustive research. Twitter weighed in on whether of not they agreed with McClure.
Ok that makes so much sense!!! 😅 I never would’ve thought that!— Kristin Covert (@kristin_lynn36) March 14, 2018
