The meeting was for 1:30. The killer left the message 1:57. If the car ran out of gas on his way to the meeting, the call should have been much closer to 1:30. What he should claim is that he had to walk for half an hour before he could get a signal – this actually bolsters he version of events. Of course the real reason is that he killed the guy at just after the meeting, fled the scene and made up the “out of gas” story after getting off site.
I can actually forgive that one. I’m sure all of the keys did have the correct corresponding prints (probably layers of them). But it would be strange if most of the keys had the “correct” fingerprint and an additional index fingerprint. The crime scene tech did not say he ONLY found the index prints.
The killer should have used a pencil eraser to hit the keys….
30 years ago, Jon Cryer was in a movie called “Hiding Out.” The mob was after him, so he enrolled himself in a high school to, well, hide out. The secretary asked his name, and he looked around the room and, seeing a coffee can, told her, “Maxwell House…er, uh, Max Hauser”
Classic “Night Court” reference. Nice.
I was going to say that it was more a matter of, “He’s clearly lying about being a Vice President (because of the desk) so he must be the killer…”
Clearly, there is a criminal in the background of Joe’s selfie. What’s more, he’s going to get credit for his “brilliant detective work” in slyly letting his partner know about the dastard’s presence. That’s going to get him a promotion and keep him from retiring.
While it is true that any given person will have a different preference for tearing matches out of matchbook, it is quite apparent from this particular matchbook that the “owner” of the matchbook was probably right handed. Though I would have to say that when looking at what you fully believe to be be “planted” evidence, any assumptions need to be thoroughly re-examined.
Since no one else has, I’ll make the obligatory “yule log” comment.
I “can’t see” how you made that connection.
Not so sure about that. Pulp fiction was out of sequence. As was Memento — though the latter was a more organized and reversed sequence.
