Crime Scene Description

Observation #1

This gives us more detail of the crime scene.

  • Charles' vehicle was left with the keys in the ignition, engine running, headlights and interior lights left on, and the passenger-side door left open.
  • Empty (alcohol?) bottles and other used items were found in the area.
  • Footsteps leading away from the vehicle are a long stride, indicating a tall individual.
  • Aura McBride claimed she saw Charles MacDonagh alive approximately one hour prior to Deputy James Goff arriving on the scene to interview her (approximately 9:39 PM).
  • No persons other than Aura McBride (who called in the crime) were found at the scene.
  • Charles was found slumped in the driver's seat of his vehicle with obvious bruising and abrasions around the neck (strangulation).

High School Yearbook

Observation #1

This must have been a very small class...

  • There were only 40 graduates in the entire class.

Observation #2

We can get an idea of what our prime suspects looked like in their formative years from this yearbook.

Observation #3

At the top of the last page of signatures, a message is revealed when illuminated by a blacklight:

  • "I'll keep the biz runnin while you're away."
  • I could not make a definitive match to the handwriting styles of any of the signatures.
  • Almost sounds like Charlie was dealing in high school. He did become a pharmacist, after all...

Incomplete Timeline

Observation #1

By incomplete, Michelle means incomplete...

Observation #2

She only provides us the times the school reunion started and ended and the estimated time of Charlie's death.

Observation #3

Although I will say, this gives us a nice premise of how to outline our timeline in the notebook HaK provided us.

Investigation Waiver

Observation #1

This clarifies that Michelle Gray had the sheriff's permission to conduct a search and seizure of Charlie MacDonagh's residence and property.

Koozie

Observation #1

This is a neat little souvenir from the high school reunion or just a gift from HaK. Either way, it's nifty.

Observation #2

The Chicago Pulp...

  • What a name for a newspaper...

Observation #3

Neeta reveals ill feelings toward the sheriff bringing in Michelle instead of letting the "system do their job".

Witness Statements

Antonio Villar

Observation #1

Antonio states he left for the reunion at about 5:45 PM.

Observation #2

He left the reunion at about 9:00 PM and sat in the parking lot for a while.

  • He claims to have seen Charlie drive off with someone, but he doesn't know for sure.

Observation #3

He says he arrived at the diner too early, that he was the first one there.

  • This lines up with what Arthur Hughes stated in his witness statement.

Aura McBride

Observation #1

Aura claims Artie (Arthur Hughes) is one of the people with whom she helped clean.

Observation #2

She cleaned the gym while he cleaned the cafeteria across the hall.

Observation #3

Aura claims she finished cleaning up the reunion a little after 9:45 PM.

Observation #4

She said she noticed a missed call from Susan (Li) and headed over to Susan's clinic.

Observation #5

She recounts how she found Charlie's body on her way to Susan's clinic.

Gavin Nash

Observation #1

Gavin is very elusive. He doesn't give much detail in the way of anything, except that he left the reunion at 9:00 PM to go to his hotel.

Observation #2

He states he left the hotel to go to the diner.

  • Now, is it a bar or a diner where everyone was to meet at 10:00 PM? Perhaps a bar and grill.

Observation #3

Gavin states that Nicholas Matsoukas showed up shortly after he did. Nic's parents arrived before Nic did.

  • There is no witness statement from Nicholas Matsoukas.

Susan Li

Observation #1

Susan states that she showed up to the reunion on time but left early due to concerns about a lawsuit she is involved in.

Observation #2

The rest of her accounts corroborate with Aura's.

Observation #1

Aura McBride

911 Transcript

Observation #1

This is a transcript of Aura McBride's 911 call after she found her cousin's body. It can be read while listening to the actual call provided on Michelle's website.

Autopsy Report

Observation #1

Why was he wearing different colored socks?

Observation #2

The perpetrator must have worn gloves, so how were there fingernail imprints?

Observation #3

They must have been strong or in a real rage to cause that much damage...

Observation #4

With the cranial and abdominal trauma, it's possible the passenger caused a car accident and then finished Charlie off with strangulation.

Class Ring

Observation #1

This is a gold-plated class ring from Chestnut Falls High School found at the crime scene.

  • We cannot discern if it belonged to a man or woman, as it is a size 8-1/2 and both men and women can have fingers this size.

Email Chain

Observation #1

This is an email exchange between Charlie and Susan.

Observation #2

Wow, such harsh language in the subject line...

Observation #3

Charlie was supplying meds to Susan's veterinary clinic. It seems he misjudged the amount of anesthesia he shipped to her.

  • It must have happened again since Susan is dealing with a lawsuit and she had threatened legal action.

High School Reunion Program

Observation #1

This is a program for the Chestnut Falls High School reunion.

Observation #2

We get a little background on some of the school alumni.

Observation #2

His repeated mistakes finally led to the death of one of Susan's patients.

Letter from Private Investigator

Observation #1

Michelle gives us access to the Deviant Tracker on her website.

Observation #2

She claims she has ruled out a suspect but that we may disagree with her.

Love Note

Observation #1

So, Charlie and Robyn dated in high school.

Observation #2

It appears as if they had to break up because of him getting accepted into college and her taking over her family's farm.

Observation #3

She was soooo "in love" with him.

  • Did he feel the same?
  • Did he break her heart?

Newspaper Article

Observation #1

This article is about Susan Li's patient who died because of Charlie's gross misdosage and mislabeling of medication.

Prescription

Observation #1

This was found in the tin box.

Suspect Photos

Observation #1

These show us how our suspects look all grown up.

Tin Box

Observation #1

This is a cool little tin box. It was discovered at the crime scene.

Observation #2

Inside is a prescription written to Arthur Hughes for anti-anxiety meds.

Witness Statements

Neeta Patel

Observation #1

What a nosy little thing...

Observation #2

She claims she left her wallet at the hotel so she went there before the diner. She doesn't know what time she showed up but it was before Nic got there.

Observation #3

She was not a very cooperative witness...

Nicholas Matsoukas

Observation #1

What did Nic want to talk to Charlie about...?

Observation #2

Drug business?

Observation #3

Nic reveals the reason he didn't show up right away was that he went to the bar to avoid his mother.

Robyn Dupre

Observation #1

She didn't see Charlie at all during the reunion.

Observation #2

After the reunion, she went home for a bit.

Sarah MacDonagh

Observation #1

The reason Sarah didn't go to the reunion with Charlie is that their daughter was sick.

Observation #2

I'm not buying it. Sounds like big, fat crocodile tears.

School Records

Observation #1

Oh, come on! Who the heck really texts in code like this...?

Observation #2

You can copy and paste the coded messages and plug them into the automatic shift tool to decipher them.

Observation #3

The second text screenshot is an extension of the first.

Observation #4

Once decoded, the messages read...

  • Sarah: I can't do this anymore. He refuses to believe anything is wrong...
  • N: I know.
  • N: It won't be much longer. He'll have to realize then.
  • Sarah: Promise?
  • N: Are you in bed?
  • Sarah: No, I'm in the kitchen.
  • N: Go out on the porch and call me. He won't hear.
  • Sarah: ...Alright.
  • Sarah: Give me a minute.

Observation #5

Who is N? Could it be Neeta? Could it be Nic? He was seriously late showing up to the diner...

Observation #6

Were N and Sarah having an affair?

  • "Are you in bed?" is coded, why else would it be?

Observation #7

It doesn't look good for Sarah. It seems like she may have been plotting her husband's murder...

Observation #8

The signature on the receipt looks like it may be Sarah MacDonagh.

  • She ordered dinner for herself and Maggie.
  • Was this to try and establish some kind of alibi or a celebratory dinner?

Sarah MacDonagh

Bank Statement

Observation #1

These are checks back and forth from Charlie and Antonio.

Observation #2

A check for $5.00??

Observation #3

What is with the memos?

Observation #4

The checks are listed newest to oldest (within a few days' span of time). So the order would be:

  • C to A ($6,800 (WOW!)): "Return Cart Here" is dumb
  • A to C ($15.00): All of this is yours
  • C to A ($20.00): Moving isn't a "Product of our time"
  • A to C ($5.00): It Wasn't Out Door Figure Skating

Observation #5

The check numbers themselves are too far-spaced out for checks to have been written in between. Could these be clues for how to decode the memo messages?

Observation #6

The check numbers tell us in which order to read the words in the messages.

Observation #7

Once decoded, from oldest to newest, the messages would read:

  • "Here is return"
  • "Is this all"
  • "Product isn't moving"
  • "Figure it out"

Observation #8

So, Charlie was still pushing drugs (using Arthur Hughes' expired prescription of Diazepam) and was in business with Antonio Villar.

Corpse Photos

Observation #1

These are photos of Charlie's corpse depicting the head trauma and strangulation bruises to the neck.

Drug Test Survey

Observation #1

This is an outline of Michelle's observations when she asked the suspects if they would consent to drug tests.

  • Robyn Dupre seemed to answer with no qualms.
  • Arthur Hughes wanted to know how others answered... He claimed he hadn't been on any medications for a while. Why the prescription then, Arthur? Huh? Huh? Huh?
  • Susan Li consented in a calm manner. Maybe a little too calm?
  • Sarah MacDonagh was curious if her drug testing would speed up the investigation.
  • Nicholas Matsoukas agreed if it wouldn't clash with his schedule.
  • Aura McBride put up a fight before agreeing. Why?
  • Gavin Nash declined, playing the privacy-violation card, and was not too happy.
  • Neeta Patel agreed but was nosy about non-related issues pertaining to the case.
  • Antonio Villar thought Michelle was wasting time focusing on the wrong things and would not consent if asked.

Letter from Private Investigator

Observation #1

Michelle explains that all evidence from the crime scene has been processed and that most of it has been sent back to her.

Observation #2

She tells us of two more items she has sent us: the necklace and socks.

Observation #3

She also got the toxicology report back and advises us to compare it with the autopsy report we received in Episode 2.

Observation #4

Michelle states that she observed the suspects' reactions when asked if they would consent to a drug test.

  • She has included the observations in our package.

Observation #5

Apparently, Arthur Hughes wrote a blog on the night of the murder. Hmm. The plot thickens...

  • Michelle took a screenshot of the blog and included it on her website. She instructs us on how to locate this file.
  • Ah, yes! She did include the video from the blog and gives us instructions on how to access this file as well.

Observation #6

Michelle advises us to listen closely to the video, as some of the audio is slightly distracting.

Observation #7

I hope Michelle gained access to the pharmacy logs legally!

  • Same goes for Charlie's bank account.

Opal Necklace

Observation #1

This is a gold chain necklace with a white opal medallion.

Observation #2

It was found in Charlie's car. Michelle thinks it may have been in the car before the night of the murder but it is included as evidence anyway.

Observation #3

Could this have belonged to his wife, Sarah?

Pawn Shop Receipt

Observation #1

What a name, Salamander Pawn!

Observation #2

So, Charlie pawned off his class ring the year after graduation. This is the ring we received in Episode 2, according to Michelle's letter.

Observation #3

Did Charlie buy it back or did someone else buy it, keep it all these years, and then leave it at the scene of the crime?

Observation #4

Why did Charlie pawn the ring?

Pharmacy Ledger

Observation #1

This shows that Arthur was refilling his Diazepam all the way through December. Same amount every time.

  • The refill numbers were never updated.
  • Each refill was admin-approved, meaning Charlie was refilling the prescription even though Arthur's script was expired.

Socks

Observation #1

This is a black pair of socks with green alien heads printed on them. They are neatly folded and appear to be clean, perhaps never worn.

Observation #2

They were found in Charlie's car. Michelle thinks they may have been in the car before the night of the murder but they are included as evidence anyway.

Observation #3

In one of the socks is a folded piece of paper. It is blank.

  • Will a blacklight reveal a message?

Observation #4

Once revealed, the message reads:

  • "Found these online, reminded me of HS. We should go back to the old delivery system ha ha."

Observation #5

Were the socks a gift from Antonio to Charlie? Is that how they transferred drugs in high school, in their socks?

Toxicology Report

Observation #1

Charlie proved positive for a major amount of anti-anxiety meds, one of which was prescribed to Arthur Hughes, made evident by the hidden prescription in Episode 2.

  • Greater than 800 ng/mg of diazepam found in his system.

Observation #2

Charlie also tested positive for alcohol at .12, which is .4% over the legal limit.

Observation #1

If we click on "Enhance", we can clearly hear the background conversation being held during the taping of Arthur's horrible rendition of "Danny Boy".

  • The conversation was between Charlie and Nic. Nic reveals a big secret that he wishes to be kept secret.
  • This further fuels my theory of Sarah and Nic having an affair. Nic accidentally spilled the beans in a moment of vulnerability and had to make sure Charlie stayed quiet.

This places Nic at the Manifest Destiki bar at 9:42 PM, or at least his credit card was there.

CD Case

Observation #1

This was found in a box of Charlie's high school memorabilia in his home.

Observation #2

It was tucked partway into the fanny pack that we also received.

Observation #3

It appears to have been a mix CD to Charlie from his high school sweetheart, Robyn.

  • Wonder what happened to the actual CD...

Crayon Drawing

Observation #1

This is a drawing by Maggie, showing her mother and another woman standing over a corpse.

Observation #2

So my first instinct was correct and the "N" that Sarah was texting in code with was Neeta! The corpse is Charlie.

  • But why is Maggie smiling?
  • Did she overhear the two women talking and didn't understand the severity of the topic?

Fanny Pack

Observation #1

This is a blue fanny pack with 3 zippers - 2 on the front, 1 on the back.

Observation #2

On the fanny pack I received, the front 2 zippers were open in the middle and zipped on either side.

  • Not sure if this is a clue or not...

Observation #3

There is nothing inside any of the pockets.

Observation #4

According to Michelle's letter, this was found in a box of Charlie's high school memorabilia.

Funeral Pamphlet

We get an updated photo of Charlie and a little more background of his life.

Observation #3

Assuming Sarah wrote the obit, she is asking that people contribute to her daughter's college fund.

Interview Transcript

Observation #1

Haha. Gavin dosed Charlie with Valium unbeknownst to Charlie...

  • What a pal...

Observation #2

Gavin explains that he and a chick went into the janitor closet to "relieve a little stress". Ahem.

  • This explains the mess Arthur Hughes noted during his clean-up.

Observation #3

I love Michelle's come back to that...

Observation #4

We gather more information for our timeline. Gavin claims Charlie's car was already gone by the time Gavin left the building.

  • Sarah and her lover (Neeta), and Maggie.

Observation #2

There is a coded message on the back. This can be plugged into the auto shifter on DeviantTracker.

Observation #3

Once decoded, the message reads:

  • "One more week, love. Can't wait!"

Observation #4

This is the same handwriting that was on the gift bag found in Charlie's car.

Updated Witness Statements

Neeta Patel

Observation #1

So, she admits she went to Sarah and Charlie's house before heading to the diner.

  • To tell Sarah of her successful murder?

Nicholas Matsoukas

Observation #1

Nic acknowledges that his mother lied to Michelle during her recent statement. He explains where he was after the reunion and why he wanted to see Charlie afterward.

Robyn Dupre

Observation #1

Robyn was very snobbish. She was complaining about having to be interviewed again, claiming she doesn't remember exact times or events.

Sarah MacDonagh

Observation #1

What did Neeta want to drop off? She never mentioned dropping anything off in her statement...

Letter from Private Investigator

Observation #1

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

Newspaper Clipping 1

Observation #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

Observation #1

Wow. They arrested Gavin for his little stunt of dosing Charlie's drink with diazepam at the reunion.

Observation #2

Holy shit! Up to 50 years for all the stuff he could be charged for!

Pawn Shop Record

Observation #1

This shows that someone else bought Charlie's ring after he pawned it.

Vandalism Incident Report

Observation #1

This is the report that was filed when Charlie's car was vandalized.

Observation #2

This clarifies that what was written was actually:

  • "WILL C U SOON" - one word written on each one of the 4 doors.

Observation #3

There is no mention of the dent, so that must have happened prior to the spray painting.

Observation #4

There were two other incidents of similar vandalism.

  • "DREAMS LAST SO LONG"
  • "EVEN AFTER UR GONE"

Vandalism Photo

Observation #1

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?

Observation #1

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...

Observation #1

This was posted the day after Charlie's car was vandalized.

Observation #2

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.
