Hacky Sack

Letter from Private Investigator

  • Michelle found a flash drive and sent it to us without trying to crack the password herself?

Newspaper Clipping 1

  • This article reports that Charlie's gravestone was vandalized. Specifically, the "Beloved Husband".
    • This had to have been done by either Sarah or Neeta.

Newspaper Clipping 2

  • Wow. They arrested Gavin for his little stunt of dosing Charlie's drink with diazepam at the reunion.
  • Holy shit! Up to 50 years for all the stuff he could be charged for!

Pawn Shop Record

  • This shows that someone else bought Charlie's ring after he pawned it.
    • Why would a person buy someone else's high school ring...?

Time Capsule Photo

  • Why is everyone so somber?
    • Especially Aura. She looks like she's hiding something...
    • How about the obsession just oozing out of Robyn's pores as she locks her gaze onto Charlie.

Vandalism Incident Report

  • This is the report that was filed when Charlie's car was vandalized.
  • This clarifies that what was written was actually:
    • "WILL C U SOON" - one word written each one of the 4 doors.
  • There is no mention of the dent, so that must have happened prior to the spray painting.
  • There were two other incidents of similar vandalism.
    • "DREAMS LAST SO LONG"
    • "EVEN AFTER UR GONE"

Vandalism Photo

  • This depicts the vandalism on Charlie's car from a few years back noted in Michelle's letter.
    • What does "Will C" mean?
    • Michelle stated that the vandalisms around town are few and far between.
    • Could this and the vandalism of Charlie's headstone have been done by the same person?

      • Even with headphones, buds in both ears, and volume all the way up, it is very hard to decipher the audio in the clips.
        • At certain points, I heard what sounded like dripping water, a woman gasping, something being dragged across something, a woman's haggard breathing, and music, but mostly silence like these were butt-dials...
        • The song is "You Were Meant for Me" by Jewel. This was on Robyn's love mix to Charlie in high school...

      • This was posted the day after Charlie's car was vandalized.
      • It was posted by Robyn.
        • Was she responsible for all the vandalism work back then? How about now, with Charlie's gravestone?
        • The ring on Robyn's finger can be deduced to be Charlie's. So she is the one who bought it after he pawned it.
        • She's still jealous of him after all this time? Wow, I did not see this one coming at all. I thought I had it nailed down, but this evidence is damning when there is nothing against Neeta except for her initial. She probably was having an affair with Sarah, but she was not the one to kill Charlie.
