Physical Items

Ami Letter

Observation #1

In this letter, Ami explains some evidence she sent to us.

  • Beanie
  • Signal mirror

Observation #2

As well as some items she uploaded to DeviantTracker on Michelle's website.

  • Video footage

Observation #3

She tells us that Michelle also left us an "assignment".

Documentary Storyboard

Observation #1

These must belong to Lillian Walker, as she is a documentarian.

Observation #2

She seems to have storyboarded the altercation between Toby and Emma well before it even happened...

  • How and why?

Observation #3

The added notations on these pages are in Toby's handwriting...

  • So he was in on this?
  • It was planned?
  • His journal entry made it sound as if he was surprised.
  • Something's not adding up here... but it gives Lillian motivation.
  • If she and Toby were working together and she felt he was leaving her behind by working for an outside company...

Email Chain

Observation #1

From these exchanges, we gain Nigel's username for the University Portal.

Observation #2

We also learn that the expedition team's jobs were in jeopardy pending the findings of the elusive ghost lynx.

National Park Beanie

Observation #1

According to Ami, this beanie probably did not belong to Toby.

Observation #2

It was found inside the lab tent.

Observation #3

Sneaky, sneaky HaK. Written on the tag INSIDE the hat is a message:

  • teatime2492

Observation #4

This is the password for Nigel's login on the University Portal.

Postcard

Observation #1

There is a quadrant on the back of this postcard.

  • I didn't know we were going back to math class! 🤔

Observation #2

By process of elimination using handwriting comparisons, we know this was not written by Toby or Lillian.

Observation #3

Placing the signal mirror over the square singles out "N" through the peephole.

Observation #4

So we have "NER" for spare letters so far.

  • Are we trying to spell "nerd"? 😏

Observation #5

No, N stands for North. Continuing with how the grid has started mapping out the alphabet, finish it.

  • The "key" at the top-right tells us that Y = A, U = B, and so on and so forth.
  • Map the substitution alphabet, working our way out to in and then clockwise.


See Figure 1

Observation #6

To decode the message, find the coded letter in the original alphabet (closest to the line) and collect the substituted letter.

Observation #7

  • Once decoded, the message reads:
    • "AN OLD METHOD"

Safety Protocols

Observation #1

"Bring Rusty to all unexplored areas." Too funny.

Observation #2

There is some kind of code on the front of this item.

  • It is Morse code.

Observation #3

It is difficult to distinguish the spaces between the letters, but once deciphered, the message reads:

  • "IGNOREE ONE/I TRUST YOU"

Observation #4

There is an extra "E" on purpose.

  • Why?

Observation #5

Look back at the hiking medallion from Episode 2.

  • The letter is "R".

Signal Mirror

Observation #1

It reads like it was written by a person whose native language is not English.

Observation #2

According to Ami, this mirror may not have belonged to Toby.

Observation #3

Unlike the beanie, the mirror was found closer to the area where Toby's body was found.

  • Was it dropped by the murderer?

Observation #4

This item is used in conjunction with the postcard.

Toby's Notebook Page

Observation #1

From these pages, we can deduce that "f/4" is a female.

Observation #2

We also learn that "f/1.4" is female.

Observation #3 → f/1.4

  • Nigel Ricci
  • Russell Tudlik

Observation #8

Toby confirms that WiFi in the area is spotty and is only reliable right within the base camp.

  • This would mean anyone who sent a transaction within the time frame of his death could possibly be eliminated as a suspect.

Observation #9

In the 8/15 entry, why are the A and Bs in "UNBELIEVABLE" larger than the rest of the word?

Observation #10

Toby got good news from an outside company wanting to use his photos. One of the women got upset about that.

  • Was she jealous enough to kill Toby over it?

Observation #11

I am thinking that "f/4" is Lillian Walker and "f/22" is Russell Tudlik, but I will leave the list as is until I gain more confirmation.

WiFi Usage Log

Observation

Interesting. Toby's time of death is estimated between 9:00 pm and 10:15 pm, yet his laptop was accessed at 10:47 pm... for 12 minutes.
