Amanda's Diner Menu

  • There's nothing special about Amanda's menu. There is nothing special about Amanda's.

Bingo's Diner Menu

  • The menu from Bingo's connects Hawthorn Farms to the diner. In the Town Council Meeting Minutes, however, it becomes clear that very few people want to do business with the Hawthorn Twins, which puts Bingo's in a place of exception.

Bingo's Diner Placemat

  • There are two very important word puzzles on the placemat, written and submitted to Bingo's by "Darkscale". Who is Darkscale? The same person who made the crossword in the Jenkin's General circular and drew the violent scene of a family-unfriendly Blue Lizzy eating the face of an early settler.
  • The word search puzzles are more complicated than they first appear. Darkscale's crossword includes a clue to help a keep observer of details to SHIFT the letters into secret messages. The word search puzzles are actually shift ciphers.
  • First, solve the word search by highlighting, circling, or scratching out each word bank according to the instructions on the placement. Ignore those letters from now on. Then, shift all the remaining letters in the word searches back up the alphabet a number of places equal to the number of the SHIFT clues in the crossword.
  • The letters in the first word search should be shifted 14 places, corresponding with the second "SHIFT" that appears in the crossword clue. The letters in the second word search should be shifted 10 places, corresponding with the first "SHIFT" that appears in the crossword clue. The remaining letters now spell out hidden instructions.
  • The first reads "PICK UP THE BODY AT TWO BY FOUR AM" and the second reads "PICK UP THE BODY AT SIX BY ONE PM".
  • The SIX and TWO refer to locations around Sag Pond Lake. Photos in the gallery reveal markings on trees that are used by Darkscale and the twins for this purpose.

Blue Lizzy Art Print

  • A grotesque sketch of a more realistic and violent Blue Lizzy, as envisioned by local artist, Darkscale. While this serves as a decorative piece of local art in the minds of Hawthorn Farmstead Realty, it reveals an underlying interest in the macabre by one of your fellow townsfolk.

Blue Lizzy Museum Brochure

  • Contains information on some local history as well as the address for the museum website.

Box of Crayons

  • Crayons from Bingo's Diner to aid in solving puzzles and doodling. For the kids.

Exterminator's Coupon

  • Ray operates the "Pest-Assured" Extermination, and other than the pun in its name, there is nothing criminal about this business.

Hawthorn Farms Soap

  • The soap comes from your neighbors at Hawthorn Farms. They don't sell their soap through Marshall Jenkin, much to Jenkin's chagrin, as evidenced in the Town Council Meeting Minutes.

Hawthorn Farmstead DVD

  • Sheila McGlenn's orientation video briefly explains some of the history behind the formation of Hawthorn Junction, as well as introduces some of the characters: Sarah and Charles Hawthorn of Hawthorn Farms, who do not permit trespassing; Harold Plum, oldest busboy at Bingo's; the Jenkins, who run the delivery and general store; Paula, who operates the truck stop on the edge of town; Mayor Roscoe, the town's leader, whose door is always open; and Dodd Plum, who curates the museum.

Hawthorn Farmstead Welcome Letter

  • From Sheila McGlenn, local realtor and the woman who sold you your new home. She reveals that she has a quarrel with the Hawthorns for not agreeing to sell a nice, square parcel of their land for development.

Holy Water's Fellowship Church Pamphlet

  • The Holy Water's Fellowship Church sends its pamphlets out to every resident of Hawthorn Junction in the hopes of bringing all repentant sinners into their fold. Chuck Hawthorn, your neighbor, is clearly taken away by the reverend's sermons and holds an almost zealous dedication to the church.

Jenkin's General Mail Delivery Bag

  • A simple canvas bag used by Marshall Jenkin's delivery boy to carry the mail to the residents of Hawthorn Junction. It's a thankless job, and it looks like the most recent person to do it got fed up and left the last of their route on your doorstep.

Jenkin's General Store Circular

  • Marshall Jenkin's circular goes out to every resident in town. He publishes a crossword puzzle by Darkscale in his circular. Darkscale's crossword puzzle has two clues. 10 Across and 14 Down, that are actually directions on how many places to SHIFT the letters in Darkscale's other puzzles to uncover a hidden message.

Letter from Marla Frohman

  • A letter from Marla Frohman to Charli Jenkin, explaining her conclusion and rationale regarding the runaway Carson Jenkin. Marla relates Carson's story of what happened the night he ran away. Because Carson is the only person to have seen the "kill shed" and survived, his story sets up certain parameters for the geography of the missing victims.
    • The kill shed, and therefore the killer, must have easy access to the woods that surround the town.
    • The kill shed is not located in an area easily recognized by a resident.

Letter from Sarah Hawthorn

  • A neighborly welcome to the neighborhood from Sarah Hawthorn, one of the twins who own the farm from which your development was constructed. It contains a friendly invitation to game night, as well as a curious final sentence, beginning with Go and ending with Stop. The words used, with the exception of go, stop, and a single or double blah, are either one- or three-syllable words. In Morse code, dots are one "unit" long, and dashes are three long. This information, combined with the fact that the Hawthorns have a history with Morse code (as referenced on the tourism website), can be used to deduce that the nonsensical sentence actually contains a hidden meaning.

Solution

  • By replacing one-syllable words with "dot" and three-syllable words with "dash", and using "blah" as a break between letters and a "blah blah" as a break between words, the message reads:
    • "STAY DELICIOUS"
  • Perhaps the Hawthorn twins process more than pork.

Lizzy on Main Festival Map

  • A map from the local tourism board. It was designed for the most recent Lizzy on Main festival, but it doubles as a way for Hawthorn Farmstead Realty to help you get acquainted with the geography of your new hometown. Certain residents' addresses are listed in the Town Council Meeting Minutes, and using clues from all documents, most of them can be accounted for.
  • For example, through Marla's notes, we learn that Reverend Al Davis lives next to the church. In the Town Council Meeting Minutes, he is listed at 2 Plum Dr. Harold is listed at 4 Plum Dr., so we know Harold's house is the gray one that backs up to the woods.

Lizzy on Main Poster

  • Features the commercialized image of Blue Lizzy, approved by the Hawthorn Junction Tourism board for its mass consumer appeal.

Lizzy on Main Trucker Hat

  • A leftover souvenir from the most recent Lizzy on Main festival, part of Jenkin's General overstock liquidation.

Marla Frohman's Interview Notes

  • Marla's notes from her interviews with various people of interest in her investigation into Carson Jenkin's whereabouts, typed up for a formal report to Charli. Through Marla's notes, we learn that:
    • Reverend Al Davis can easily access the woods, feels a desire to "save" others, and harbors a hatred of sin.
    • We learn that Harold Plum is nice and smiles at passersby, has a deep love for and wants to protect the town, and views Carson Jenkin as what's wrong with new times.
    • We learn that Dodd Plum dislikes the Jenkin family as a general rule, views himself as an outsider, and really gets into collecting reptiles.
    • We learn that Paula Molineaux dislikes Carson, is affectionate toward Charli, dislikes Jonathan Jenkin, keeps truck records, and owns the building with the bathroom in the photo.We learn that Marshall Jenkin is close to Mayor Cole Roscoe, is familiar with the woods around town, and blames Carson's rebellious nature on Charli.

Missing Person Articles

Carson Jenkin Missing

  • Carson is confirmed to be an 18-year-old who no one in town seems to care for. Dodd Plum seems particularly glad he's gone, though that seems to conflict with the feelings he expresses to Marla during her interview. His mother (here incorrectly referred to as "Charlie") and his father are both listed as looking for their son.

Firefighter

  • The article about a missing firefighter relays the victim's friend's account of what happened. From her account, it is clear that Mayor Roscoe was not the person to abduct her unfortunate friend.

Missing Teacher

  • Mayor Roscoe is certainly averse to allow the prying eyes of the outside world to look at Hawthorn Junction unfavorably. He also seems adamant that nothing sinister can possibly be going on under his watch.

Package to Mrs. Jenkin from Marla Frohman

  • Catherine "Charli" Jenkin, by the looks of it, had requested an out-of-town private investigator to find her son, Carson. Due to a snafu involving the local mail carrier, Mrs. Jenkin never received the package.

Paula's Truck Stop Bathroom Photo

  • In the lower-right corner of the photo, there is a secret message written to "C" from "P" using a series of number pairs. As Charli and Paula are known to be close - as evidenced in the Town Council Meeting Minutes and Marla's interviews - and the bathroom in the photo comes from Paula's Truck Stop, it can be deduced that Paula is the one who wrote the note, and Charli is the intended recipient.
  • Looking through the truck stop records, a keen eye would observe that the first set of numbers in each of the secret message's pairs corresponds to the last digits of the truck DOT numbers in the list. Using the second number in each pair to reference a character on the respective license plate yields a message.

Solution

  • "C, ILL TREAT U RIGHT. -P"


  • This mirrors Paula's sentiments that she expressed to Marla about Charli, as well as a catchphrase when Paula is mentioned in Sheila McGlenn's DVD.

Paula's Truck Stop Coupon

  • Paula's sits on the outer limit of Hawthorn Junction, just off the major interstate. This gives Paula an excellent vantage point to keep track of visitors coming and going to and from town.

Paula's Truck Stop Records

  • A list of the trucks that have made recent stops at Paula's. The list includes each truck's DOT number, license plate information, and axle weights.
