I a little bemused.

I was doing a hard level favor for the Barber and picked up two threads at the crime scene. I had three suspects with false alibis and two of them didn't match either thread, which left one remaining suspect. However, when I accused him I was informed that I had accused the wrong person - that the killer was one of the suspects who didn't match either thread.

How can this be?

Also, if you do not have all the PE skills (foot, thread, hair, handwriting) your crime scene may not show all the evidence. E.g. If there is a hair at the scene and you do not have the hair skill then the crime scene will not list a hair which could very well point to your guilty suspect.

One little correction to Breitkat's otherwise excellent advise: a false/no alibi (A-) plus Witness Evidence (WE) is good enough to accuse. There will BE a second WE out there, but one is sufficient with a bad alibi. True alibis (A+) will never have two WE, but will frequently have a WE and a matching Physical Evidence (PE). The combination to not trust is a WE + PE + unknown alibi (A?).

PE + A- = Guilt
WE + A- = Guilt
WE + WE = Guilt (useful when A?)

WE + PE = DANGER (you'll need to determine alibi or a 2nd WE)

I usually follow the formula WE + False Alibi = Guilty, but several times I've had a suspect with a false alibi lie about WE and point to someone else with a false alibi. I end up accusing an innocent person. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

If you come across a case again where you have a WE + a False Alibi and you get an FA hit the back arrow and take screen shots and send them to Yeti.

The guilty suspect will always have 2 WE, a suspect with a real alibi can have WE as well, but will only have 1. But if you have WE + a False Alibi something went haywire.

Pardon me - if you have a WE + a False alibi and get an FA something went haywire.
