Research was wrong

I just did a case where after acquiring all suspects, I checked research and it said it was not Barnabas.

I then worked through the case with 2 possible suspects being the killer. The other suspects didn't suspect either suspect, except 2 of the suspects clammed up when asked about 1 of these suspects, so I figured it was that person. I accused him and it was wrong. The real killer was Barnabas. (Did this make sense? lol)

How can that be?

Sounds like a bug, you should submit that to Sleuth Admin

"Did that make sense?"

Um, not really, no.

Research will tell you one particular suspect that CANNOT be the killer, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. That person will have a FALSE alibi but WILL NOT MATCH any of the physical or witness evidence, no matter how hard you try. So either you read the wrong person on the Research page, or you had a bug. Without knowing the real specifics of your case--ie, names, who clammed where, etc. (and I really don't want to, anyway, cause I can't fix anything now; only Admin can), there's not much we can help you with. Sorry. :-/

Also beware the "same name" issue. Some cases come complete with suspects carrying either the same first name (boy are these fun!) or similar names. You know, like Amanda and Ananda and Armand. Yeah, we like those too, Ben. *mutter*

Also beware running multiple windows and having your research window open from an old case without refreshing!

Oh, yes, that's true, too! That 'running multiple windows' thing can really hurt you if you aren't careful.

By the way, Stooby, I noticed you've stopped shaving. Nice look!
