Of course, one question he should be asking Brian: “Did you lose an earring?” If it is sitting by the phone, he might be guilty.
What really makes we want to suspect the security chief is that the safe was OBVIOUSLY burgled, and he showed up with evidence. Someone wanting to steal the formula would either photocopy it and put everything back, OR put the blame on someone else. The security chief did the later.
It gets weird. I make it 14.742424 hours or 14 hours, 44 minutes, 32 8/11 seconds.
The logic goes like this: Every 40 minutes he drives at 44 miles/hour for 35 minutes. This takes him 25.666666 miles. He does 22 of these taking him 564.666666 miles. This takes 14.666666 hours. He then drives the final 3.333333 miles at 44 miles/hour without a break. It takes 4.545454 minutes to do that last bit, so he isn’t ready for a break yet. This comes to the specified time.
Once all this is done, the Physics Police arrest him for violating inertia with his instant stops and starts.
Thinking about it, I suspect the blatant evidence that the soot is faked is its placement. It is only on their faces (and the dog). If it were natural, it would be everywhere. It would be on their foreheads. It would be on their collars. Since it is on the dog, it would probably be over most of their bodies, at least for the couple with the dog.
Agreed, and likewise thankful.
I believe soot is normally a result of incomplete combustion, often a result of lack of oxygen. Fires need less oxygen than humans, so if that were the source of the soot, they would at least be hospitalized for observation.
I suppose they could have run through the fire, but they don’t seem to be red enough, burned enough, or under enough medical treatment for that either.
Arson is a determination for specialist firemen. Once they have made such a determination, the police investigate “who”.
Good, but I think it is only the five people who rubbed soot on their faces. Danger’s suspect is innocent.
Well, it was in the Virginia drivers manual when I got my license.
Odd town. Usually, the clock tower is on the town hall, the town hall faces the town square (which is consistent with the clock face), the town hall door faces the square, and the door has an inscription above it. This inscription should be visible.
The fact that Dolly likes moving her ankle bracelet will also be born out in their other photos.
The one thing Danger did get right — assuming the picture was in fact faked, this is evidence of premeditation, which means murder one is the only correct charge.(I think this charge is also evidence that Danger isn’t in New York state. Different charge names.)
If you look carefully, and consider the mechanics involved….
The mallet in the third frame is backwards. The head should be over the wicket, not hitting Red.
Actually, the mallet head might have hit the wicket and pulled it out of the ground. Perhaps causing the wicket to hit Red.
Agreed. Maybe Fenwick wears “Depends”?
