That's right. I made the mistake myself. Bob suspected Joe, I had a Footprint ID'd as Joe's. Joe clammed up from the start, so no alibi.

And I wrongfully accused Joe! Ghaaahh! A BLEMISH on my record!

So better newbies learn from my mistake. ... although in hind sight, had I been aware of the risk, I probably still would have taken the gamble. But that's me.

And here goes the broken record again ;)

There are 3 rules in this game. As soon as you have one of these you can accuse:

PE + false/stated no alibi = GUILTY!
WE + false/stated no alibi = GUILTY!

A clam is NOT the same as a no!

If you CANNOT get a alibi out of anyone, and you have done research, QUIT the case. It is better to quit than take a guess and get an FA!!

What if you know who is guilty but the only witness who can still accuse has clammed up so I am unable to accuse this witness.

I think you mean someone who can establish a motive. Well nothing you can do here, it clearly states you can't accuse without a motive.

Only thing you can do at this point is quit the case, thats why it's so important to establish each and every motive

Mmm also subscribers later down the line can earn enough skill points to get 'surveillance' which 'might' work 'sometimes' to unclam a suspect. It's hit and miss, but it works often enough to be helpful. But early in there's not much you can do besides quit.
