Physical Items

Ami Letter

Observation #1

Ami recounts the final items she has found for us:

  • Toby's last notebook pages
  • Conrad's little journal
  • Another page of Emma's journal

Observation #2

She says she was able to log in to Toby's email account.

Bookmark

Observation #1

There is Morse code on the back.

Observation #2

Once deciphered, the messages read:

  • "Resetting trap after dinner?"
  • "Probably, why?"
  • "Take Toby"
  • "Nah u wanna come tho?"
  • "I'm staying here tonight"
  • "Fine"

Email Chain

Observation #1

Wow, it took the magazine over 2 months to get back to him...

Observation #2

The last email from Toby's account to the magazine obviously was not written by him. The tone is all wrong and it is not formal like the others.

Observation #3

It was sent at 10:12 pm the night Toby died. But he left camp at 9:00 pm.

  • Emma accompanied Rusty on resetting the trap.
  • Lillian was off taking a photo of golden hour.
  • Nigel has already been eliminated as a suspect.
  • So that only leaves the old fart to be the one to write the email, be seen on the trail cams, and murder Toby.

Field Journal Page

Observation #1

Emma reveals that Toby planned to sell the animal as soon as it was found.

Observation #2

It sounds as if she were the one who wrote the suspicious email from Toby's account, but she was with Rusty at the time.

  • So unless she somehow wrote it when Toby caught her in his tent and scheduled it to send later...

Keychain

Observation #1

This holds a microfiber cloth with a slip of paper wrapped up inside.

Observation #2

The slip of paper reads:

  • "Share: AutoFocus724"

Lanyard

Observation #1

This actually pulls apart to reveal a concealed USB stick...

Observation #2

When plugged in, all it contains is 2 very out-of-focus "washed" photos.

Observation #3

According to Toby's notebook page, he digitally distorted them.

  • I wonder if/how we can un-distort them.
  • They should show what Conrad buried by the catacombs.

PI Letter

Observation #1

Michelle is back with us for the last leg of this race.

Observation #2

She gives us our final password for her website.

Pocket Journal

Observation #1

Certain words are coded in this journal. It is a simple substitution cipher which can be cracked by common sense deduction of certain words and patterns and going from there.
