Hi! I'm a newbie and I'm working on 1 case right now. My Detective is tough and charming with flirting, sweet-talking, bend the rules, interrogation skills. I have spoken to all my main suspects(those without real alibis) and sadly all of them have clammed up to me. I have 2 physical evidences, a note and a footprint. The note belongs to 1 of the main suspects but the shoemaker keeps telling me that the footprint does not belong to any of my suspects at all. It's all very confusing.
Three townies have told me that three different suspects "think he/she knows who the killer is..."
Those 3 different suspects are the Main Suspects(I actually have 4 of them). They have all clammed up to me.
I swear I really did my best to ask just the right questions. to ask them only about the other main suspects. But I don't get any common denominator at all. Example, 1 suspect does not suspect the other 2 before he clams up, so that leaves 2 of them. When I ask the others about the "other" 2 they don't suspect them at all. Are they always telling the truth?
I know the note belongs to 1 of my main suspects, but nobody suspects her either. How can that be?
I'm so sorry to take up too much space on such a simple question. I really like this game and I just get sooo frustrated when I can't solve the case. Anyone who can help me will have my eternal gratitude. Thankyouthankyou.
Yes, MooseLady. Each case is different, but the formula works for every case. The guilty person in each case will have 1 piece of PE and 2 WE against them and they will always have a fake alibi. So you can solve the case using PE or using WE.
Each of the other pieces of evidence will match someone with a real alibi. And in many cases, those people who have a valid alibi, and a piece of physical evidence against them will also have a witness evidence against them. So, if you find PE + WE and do not know the alibi, you can not be sure of guilty. You must use the formula to be sure. If not, you risk getting a false accusation.
The welcome newbies thread has the formula for solving a case.
PE+Fake/"none of your business" Alibi=guilty
WE+Fake/"none of your business" Alibi=guilty
2 WE = guilty
PE=Physical Evidence WE=Witness Evidence
Having a clammed suspect that will not give you an alibi is not the same as a fake/none alibi.
PE+WE does NOT = Guilty
