You can get witness evidence pointing to more than one killer. One of them is lying. Look for either a false (or no) alibi, or a second witness to confirm the identification. Remember, there will be:

There can be only 1 (killer).
1 piece of material (physical) evidence and 2 witnesses which point to your killer.
Your killer will never have a (valid or verifiable) alibi.
Your killer will not be killed.
Your killer may or may not go into hiding.
Your killer will never have been with the police or in court at the time of the murder (eliminated by research).
Your killer will not have an evil twin, but may have had the full 8 years of evil medical/academic training. In the latter case, do not forget to address them as Doctor - unless they are already behind bars.

Yes, it happen to me where the Priest validated a suspect's alibi and that person was in fact the killer. I thought it might have been a glitch, but never got a response when I reported it. I got a fasle accusation because of it. So, yes, it CAN happen, and DID happen to one of my cases.

Townie hints mean about as much as the City News in the bottom of a bird cage. Works great on some stuff, not much use for much else. Sooo, use 'em with a HUGE grain of salt.

Bishtawnay didn't say it was a hint, she said the Priest validated the alibi, which I took as meaning that he said 'Yes, so-and-so was here all the time'. Can we confirm that?

One thing that occurs to me is that it might have been one of the glitches where two suspects have the same name - one had a real alibi and the other was the killer.
