today we first made a quick recap of what you had said about the characters in the story. We added information about Mc Coy who is the "assistant DA" = Distric
Attorney. He is like the boss of Liddy Hamilton.
She says "sorry" on the phone because she is calling him late at night. It's 3 am (in the morning) and she must be
waking him up. But she thinks she has found the culprit. She has had a
revelation, a flash.
Then you had to give ideas to commit the perfect crime, like in a TV series. Here are the ideas that came up:
For the perfect murder, you need the perfect plan:
- an alibi
- an ally or an accomplice (to accuse later)
- a good timing
- you mustn't leave clues (DNA, finger prints, noise, you should wear gloves, ...)
- nobody must see the scene = you must eliminate the witnesses
- a good murder weapon (poison, a gun with a silencer, ...)
Finally, I tested your awareness. You had to find the culprit in the following video... You were so concentrated on their alibis that you didn't see the scene had
changed...! ahah! :)
Here is what you said: The Alibis of the suspect
When the master died, ...
... the man was buttering scones in the kitchen. He
could have poisoned him.
... the young woman was polishing the brass in the
bedroom. She was cleaning a brass pot. She could have cracked his
... the old lady was planting petunias. She
could have hit him on the head too.
-> The culprit is the old lady because her alibi doesn't stand. She is lying.
You don't plant petunias before May.
- a suspect
- a culprit
- a victim
- a witness
- a murder weapon
- an alibi
