Berry - Did anyone else know about the operation you and Autumn had going?

Mrs White - Why did you start to cry when Miss Jordan said she didn't remember you?
"Haha, that was really nothing. I had left my backpack on the picnic table outside, and I had texted him to see if he could bring it inside for me before dinner since it looked like it might rain."

"Oh boy. Um. Well, Professor Plum did of course. The only other person would've been Sergeant Snow down at the police department, but he was cool too. Mrs. P. might've had some sort of idea, but we never talked to her about it."

"I had known Maggie.. Miss Jordan.. since she as a little girl growing up. I used to babysit for her and her family, and frankly I was somewhat heartbroken when she said she didn't remember me."

Peacock - what did you do after speaking to Plum in the library?

Plum - where were you when Maggie said she forgot something?
"Not very long, a couple of months maybe. We met at a conference in the city; just seemed to hit it off I suppose."

"Well I was quite stunned as you could imagine. Stunned would be the only word to describe just how... stunned I was. So I just stayed there with my glass of wine until it was time for dinner."

"We had just gotten to the dining room for dinner, I guess we were the first ones."

My Guess is:

Kitchen - Mrs. White left the room and probably came back to find the body

Fork - as it was in the kitchen

Reverend Green - he knows more about Maggie or did something which he wanted to cover up (Plus, he hasn't done a murder since your first season)

My apologies Black... Mrs. White should've said her good "carving fork". There is only one kitchen knife, that was my mistake. In light of my mis-typing, you're welcome to change if you want. My bad!

I thought it was a mistake. I only changed the weapon.

Lemme try for an elimination - Autumn with the Knife in the Greenhouse.

I also think Green has something to hide. I have a feeling that the murder was an accident.

Green - Duck Beak - Drawing Room

Some very interesting thought processes here- let's have a look at your Round 1 deductions.

Black, you said

Image

You've got NONE out of those three correct. Now we can safely eliminate the Kitchen, the carving fork, and Reverend Green from our inquiries.

Zoo, you said

Image

You've got ONE out of three correct.

Jamie, you said

Image

You've got NONE out of three correct. Though the Reverend has already been eliminated, we can also now eliminate the Drawing Room and the Duck Sculpture.

We'll continue with Round 2 now, where two questions must be asked and answered before another deduction!

Mrs. White - Did you move or break the flower pot that nearly toppled?

Mrs. Peacock - Where do the doors in the greenhouse lead?

"I just readjusted it a bit. Mrs. Peacock likes everything neat and in its proper place. It didn't break though."

"Well if you come in through the back door of the house, then turn left, that's the door to the Greenhouse. If you keep going straight you'd end up in the Kitchen. The other door in the Greenhouse just leads to the Garden."

Plum - did you tell Maggie about your conversation with Mrs Peacock?

Berry - can you confirm autumn 's story about the reason for the look between the two of you?

"No, I didn't really see her much afterwards as I mentioned earlier and it didn't cross my mind. I guess maybe I assumed she'd think I'd go and talk to her anyway."

"Yep!"

Mrs. Peacock - after the Professor left, did anyone else join you in the Library?

Mrs. White - What happened to the twain?

"Jonathan came in to tell me that he was displeased that Maggie was here for, well, his own reasons, and we talked for a bit before dinner, but that was all."

"I put it on a shelf in the Greenhouse, and I imagine that's where it stayed."

I think Plum tried to undo the damage he'd done, or maybe Maggie was just using him to get a story. I think if Mrs white didn't find the body in the kitchen, then she must have found it in the greenhouse while tending to the plants. But which handy weapon did he use?

Plum - Twine - Greenhouse

I'm going to agree with Jamie in that the murder did take place in the Greenhouse with the Twine but I think Berry is the killer.

(Also, Mrs. Peacock's answer is in green)

Bizarrely enough, I came to almost the exact same conclusion. I don't quite believe Mrs. White's baby sitting story, so I'm saying Mrs. White with the Twine in the Greenhouse

Wouldn't it be funny if 2 of us are completely wrong and 1 of us got 1 out of 3 XD

Very interesting indeed! Let's have a look:

Image

Jamie: Plum - Twine - Greenhouse: You've got TWO out of those three correct!

Black: Berry - Twine - Greenhouse: You've got ONE out of three correct!

Zoo: White - Twine - Greenhouse - You've also gotten ONE out of three correct!

----

Let's have a look at just a little bit of Additional Evidence:

The Back Yard, 5:50 PM:

"But if you don't do something, I will." Autumn told a nervous Berry. As he quickly looked away to avoid her intimidating gaze, he saw Mrs. White hurrying towards them from the house.

"Hooligan!" she cried, "I thought I saw you taking one of my good knives!" She snatched it away from him.

"Sorry Mrs. W." Berry said sheepishly, "My bad."

"Hmmf." she grunted, hurrying back to the house.


The Library, 6:15 PM

"Mrs. Peacock!" Reverend Green said, barging into the room. "We need to talk."

She picked up the wine bottle and poured herself another glass. "Oh, Jonathan, believe me I've had about as much talking to as I can take for the day."

"Really? Then you know." he asked.

She tapped the side of her nose knowingly and glugged down the glass.

Reverend Green looked slightly more at ease. "Ah.. well.. good then."


The Dining Room, 6:20 PM


"Oh bother." Maggie sighed. "I forgot my notepad. Now where did I set it down..?"

"No clue." Professor Plum grunted, slinking into a chair at the table. "But hurry, dinner will be on soon and Liz hates latecomers."

As she was about to leave the room, she turned and stuck her tongue tongue out at him.

"Cute.." he muttered.

----

We must be nearing the truth now! Round 3, only one question, then following its answer, a deduction. Good luck!
