Can they use the word "sibling" any more times?!

  • Just say "brother" or "sister" already, god.

Frannie's Letter

Observation #1

What's with all the handwritten notations...?

Observation #2

From this letter, we can start building a list of suspects and well as find out our objective for this episode.

Harold Bobblehead

Observation #1

This is a copper-colored bobblehead. It comes with a little base.

  • The inscription on the base reads: "Strong New Leadership, Unwavering Values".

Observation #2

As with a lot of products, it was made in China.

Harold Brochure

Observation #1

Harry's brochure opens up into a poster.

Observation #2

Unlike Thomas's campaign, Harry mainly focuses on getting Thomas out of office, not what he will actually do if he gained the position.

Harold Button

Observation #1

This is a simple button campaigning for Harold's vote.

Magazine Spread

Observation #1

This article was written by the victim, Ashley.

Ashley's Autopsy

Observation #1

Three puncture marks and one injection of fentanyl into Ashley's left inner elbow were made by the killer within a half-hour of the murder.

  • The killer obviously wasn't able to find a vein right away.
  • Was this an attempt to make Ashley appear as a druggie while she was still alive?

Observation #2

Ashley was struck from behind with a hard object, causing unconsciousness/disorientation but no bleeding, and then she was strangled with enough force to break the bone above her larynx.

Bar Towel

Observation #1

This was club "swag" given to Frannie by Larry, the front desk guy at the Copper Cliffs Country Club.

Comment Cards

Observation #1

Did Judith Richards cause issues in Mimosa Yoga since another member felt he had to make a complaint about "certain people disrupting the whole class"?

Country Club Pamphlet

Observation #1

This provides us with a map of the country club.

Observation #2

There are handwritten remarks in the same penmanship as on the reservation schedule.

Frannie's Letter

Observation #1

I really hope these handwritten additions don't continue throughout the entire season.

  • I don't know about anyone else, but they are very distracting and make reading the letters difficult.

High Fences Screenshot

Observation #1

Committee members are:

  • YTD257
  • MAZ481 (Judith Richards)
  • AJU425
  • KIR861
  • RAH395
  • PFN141

Observation #2

Judith Richards didn't respond to the thread until almost 4 hours after the last comment...

Observation #3

A red sweatshirt was left in the men's lounge of the country club.

Observation #4

TFC was witnessed drinking a lot the night of Ashley's murder before getting in his car and driving off.

Observation #5

One poster mentions Cross buying drinks for everyone. He also mentions mocktails and Shirley Temples.

  • Does this mean that Harold Richards drinks Shirley Temples?

Observation #6

TFC was supposed to meet up for an afterparty, but he never showed.

Police Report

Observation #1

Ashley's lap was soaked in urine...

  • Did she piss herself after death or during?

Observation #2

The syringe that was used to inject the fentanyl was left on Ashley's lap.

Observation #3

The fentanyl had not traveled to her bloodstream because the tourniquet above her elbow had not been untied.

Receipts

Observation #1

Using a comment on the High Fences thread, we can deduce that TFC is Member VPG017 and Harold Richards is BZH224.

Reggie's Note

Observation #1

Reggie explains that the items she sent to Frannie were given to her by Ashley the day she was murdered.

Reservation Schedule

Observation #1

Harold Richards had a tennis court reserved for 7:00 PM but he must have canceled it since his ID number is crossed out.

Shot Glass

Observation #1

This was club "swag" given to Frannie by Larry, the front desk guy at the Copper Cliffs Country Club.

TFC Event Flyer

Observation #1

Someone made this into a protest invitation instead.

Observation #2

On the back is a list of important IDs:

  • VPG017 (Thomas Ford Cross)
  • POM659 - guest (Sebastian Dyer)
  • UIR173 - guest (Kim Barton)
  • BZH224 (Harold Richards)
  • HTW872 - guest ← Mfxjt by 1 (Lewis Vanzetti)
  • MAZ481 (Judith Richards)

Observation #3

"Mfxjt by 1" indicates a shift cipher.

  • Shifting each letter backward by 1 gives us: "Lewis".

Witness Statements

Observation #1

Prior to Ashley's death, Reggie witnessed an altercation between Ashley and Judith Richards outside the country club.

Work Orders Log

Observation #1

Member UIR173-gst (Kim Barton) made an absurd amount of requests. So much so that staff was advised to deny her tickets.

Judith Richards

Ashley's Bag

Observation #1

This is a reusable tote bag.

Observation #2

It holds numerous items.

A.S. Wavelength

found in Ashley's bag

Observation #1

All wavelengths on this sheet with the exception of the top one, are damn near spot-on with those for Sebastian Dyer.

Bidding Sheet

Observation #1

We can eliminate 3 people from being Angel Silva's new identity based on the heights given in the profiles here.

Campaign Response

Observation #1

This is another letter shutting down Ashley and basically telling her to "shape the eff up" or else.

CarPuul Article

Observation #1

Angel Silva made a statement for this article, vouching for the rideshare company.

Observation #2

Jesus Christ, I know Uber and them can't be as bad as CarPuul, but this is one reason I will never take one.

  • You don't know who the hell you're getting in a car with...

Cease and Desist Letter

Observation #1

This is a letter from Kim Barton to Ashley to stop harassing the campaign members with slander.

Driver Profile

Observation #1

Angel Silva drove for CarPuul.

  • The "sign-up event" from the CarPuul article must have been for job seekers.

Observation #2

Although the ID is "faded out", it slightly resembles Kim Barton's photo on Ashley's blog site.

Observation #3

The second sheet lists where Angel stopped throughout the evening.

  • At 11:39, he stopped at Condor Ave/King St. This is the site of the car crash noted in the police report.
  • At 11:50, he stopped at 1 Cross St.
  • As noted in the magazine spread from Episode 1, 1 Cross Street is where Paris Green is - where Harold and Lewis were headed, and also where TFC's family mansion is).

Frannie's Letter

Observation #1

Frannie talks about hanging out with Reggie and all that good stuff.

Observation #2

She wants us to look more into Angel Silva and see if we can find why his trail went cold.

Observation #3

She also suggests we look at the "screenshots" folder on her website.

Note Envelope

Observation #1

This envelope holds several cut-up pieces of a note.

Observation #2

Reggie found it in TFC's campaign dumpster and thinks it was meant for Angel Silva.

Note Pieces

Observation #1

This is a threatening letter to Angel.

Observation #2

Use the shift key on the bottom of the TFC bobblehead base.

Observation #3

Once decoded, the messages read:

  • "WE HAD A DEAL."
  • "YOU WERE A BROKE CARPUUL DRIVER."
  • "DOWN, EVERYONE ELSE IS GOING DOWN WITH ME, YOU MOST OF ALL"
  • "THE FRIENDLY CHAP"

Observation #4

The author of this note is TFC, considering:

  • The shift key was etched on the bottom of his bobblehead base
  • He speaks of "winning"
  • "The Friendly Chap" = TFC = Thomas Ford Cross

Police Report

Observation #1

Note the address is the same as the second-to-last stop on Angel Silva's record of recent stops on his driver profile.

Observation #2

The report states there were recent tire marks from a second vehicle.

  • Could this be from Angel Silva's vehicle?
  • For some reason, I don't believe Officer Vaughn's statement of the second tire set having nothing to do with the crash.
  • Was Lewis forced to veer off the road to avoid hitting Angel's car? If so, why hadn't Lewis mentioned it?

Reggie's Note

Observation #1

Reggie is writing to us personally.

Observation #2

She explains the reasoning behind sending the items in Ashley's bag.

Suspect Wavelength Printouts

Observation #1

These can be compared with the A.S. wavelength printout.

TFC Bobblehead

Observation #1

There is actually something etched into the bottom of this one's base.

Observation #2

It is a shift cipher key.

  • A = H
  • B = I
  • C = J
  • D = K
  • E = L

Observation #3

Whatever the key belongs to, the letters will be shifted backward in the alphabet by 7.

Witness Statements

Observation #1

These are witness statements for the car crash.

Observation #2

Didn't anyone tell you, Harold? Joke's kill. 😉

Observation #3

Man, what a bummer. Brand new car and trashed the same day...

Observation #4

Contradicting stories (for a reason?)...

  • Harold said he asked Lewis to drive.
  • Lewis said he asked Harold if he could drive.

Solution #1 → Who is Angel Silva?

Sebastian Dyer

Frannie's Letter

Observation #1

Frannie wrote some kind of cipher at the bottom of her letter this time.

Observation #2

The reason she says to "hang on to this" is because we cannot solve this message yet.

  • Dun dun dun!
  • Why would she give us a coded message we can't solve until a future episode?

Harold Campaign Money Statements

Observation #1

Timestamps are written backward.

  • The first number set is the day of the week.
  • The second number set is the hour (in military time)
  • The third number set is the minute.
  • The fourth number set is the second.
  • The fifth number set is the millisecond.

Observation #2

Ashley was murdered between 7:45 PM (1945) and 8:15 PM (2015)

Jesus Christ on the wire transfer Judith made to the Police Benevolent Association for upgrading their security!

Judith's Emails

Observation #1

These emails are a hoot.

Observation #2

According to what Judith found out, all transfers over $2,000 must be done in person.

Pill Case

Observation #1

Reggie found this on Ashley's desk at home next to her "to investigate" pile.

Observation #2

Inside the "Wednesday" compartment is a tiny note.

Observation #3

Ashley was in contact with someone.

Observation #4

There are several letter substitutions throughout this message (very poorly done if trying to be secretive).

Observation #5

The objective is to figure out the correct letters in the "misspelled" words to create a message.

Observation #6

Once decoded, the message reads:

  • BRINGING PROOF

Observation #7

Could this "secret alliance" be the killer and they lured Ashley to her death with this promise of "proof"?

Recording Transcripts

Observation #1

These recordings were picked up from Val, the "spy machine" in the campaign office breakroom.

Observation #2

It kind of seems someone is attempting to write a "rap" song?

Reggie's Letter

Observation #1

Reggie continues to lament over her sister's death.

Observation #2

She also sheds some light on a few items we've been sent: a few bank statements and the pill bottle.

Ashley was murdered between 7:45 PM (1945) and 8:15 PM (2015)

  • The closest transaction around this time was a redacted wire transfer for $2,500 at 1949 (7:49 PM)
  • It can be assumed that Sebastian made this transfer, as it has been redacted.
  • As noted in Judith's emails, all transactions over $2,000 must be made in person.

Observation #3

As noted in Frannie's letter, there are notes written and then redacted all over this statement.

  • The added notes can be read still due to indentations of the writing instrument.

Observation #4

The notes added by Sebastian are:

  • family
  • special treatment
  • BO from V donation charity
  • campaign event

Bookmark

Observation #1

This was on Ashley's desk.

Observation #2

There is a long string of letters on this item.

Observation #3

Placing the bookmark over the inscription on the base of the Harold Richards' bobblehead we received in Episode 1, select letters will be revealed. These will be used as the key to deciphering the password to Ashley's OffLine account.

  • The plot thickens... 🤔

Prison Letter Page 1

Observation #1

Reggie found this in Harold Richards' safety-deposit box.

Observation #2

This one is written on the back of an origami instruction set.

  • Use the instructions to fold the second letter from Lewis to Harold.

Prison Letter Page 2

Observation #1

Reggie found this in Harold Richards' safety-deposit box.

Observation #2

Using the origami instructions on the back of the first letter from Lewis to Harold, folding the paper the correct way will reveal a hidden message.

  • Most of us probably used this folding method to play games with classmates when we were children.

Observation #3

Once folded properly, the message written on the patterned side of the page reads:

  • "REMEMBER WHAT YOU BOTH OWE ME FOR THE CAR CRASH OR I'LL TELL EVERYONE"

Reggie's Letter

Observation #1

At the bottom, Ashley coded a message. It can be discovered by using Ashley's bookmark along with the Harold Richards' bobblehead received in Episode 1.

Observation #2

This is a shift cipher using the inscription from the Harold Richards' bobblehead as the plaintext and the string of letters from Ashley's bookmark as the encoded text.

Observation #3

Once decoded, the message reads:

  • "THE PASSWORD IS SAGUARO."

Observation #1

Both of Ashley's contacts' names are encoded.

Observation #2

Using the same shift cipher as we used to crack the login password, we can discover that:

  • AKJPQ = LEWIS
  • YNWZZPK = FRANNIE

Observation #3

Lewis sent Ashley a photo of TFC, Harold, and him all having drinks together.

  • So TFC and Harold were buds the night of the car crash, which would explain why they were both in the car together that night.

Lewis Vanzetti

Ashley's Gift

Observation #1

This was a gift from Reggie to Ashley. Reggie thought Ashley would want us to have it.

Observation #2

This is a functioning quill pen with a bottle of black ink.

  • Pen and ink was my favorite medium in high school art class...

Controlled Substance Records

Observation #1

This is a list of pharmacies that distribute fentanyl.

Documentary Materials

Observation #1

This is a storyboard layout for Harold Richards' documentary video.

Observation #2

Notice in shot #6, there is a clock in the background reading 10:00.

  • According to Judith's final email to Harold in the email thread, this clock is 2 hours fast meaning it was actually 8:00, not 10:00.
  • This means he was at home, not at the library at the time of Ashley's murder.

Email Thread

Observation #1

According to Judith's last email to Harold, the clock in the study is 2 hours fast.

Evidence Note

Observation #1

This is a copy of the note found by Lewis's body at the scene of his death.

  • The keyboard shortcut for "FIND".

Frannie's Letter

Observation #1

We finally get our last coded message at the bottom of this letter.

Observation #2

All 3 messages are:

  • 🔲 RXM GMSUBPE DSMN PJEIR LCZ

  • ⚪ RAECVSEXRHSFE IOLFQ LBANSIT MTSHVREECEK FWRZOUMO TBHAIPRPD KWYOHRBD EOJN KALSIHOLSERYOST GHIRFET

Lewis's Autopsy

Observation #1

The killer also left a partial fingerprint on Lewis's body.

Observation #2

Unlike Ashley, Lewis was injected with fentanyl while he was still alive.

Observation #3

All injection marks were made in quick succession.

  • The syringe was stabbed into Lewis's arm multiple times before death, not indicative of routine drug use by Lewis.
  • It would appear the killer was trying to make it look as if Lewis was a druggie, as they had attempted with Ashley's body but producing multiple puncture wounds.
  • Was the killer attempting to frame Lewis as Ashley's killer who then accidentally OD'd?
  • If so, the blunt force trauma to the head kind of negates that approach...

Police Report

Observation #1

A note was found near Lewis's body regarding a meeting and amount of money.

Reggie's Flower

Observation #1

This is a gift from Reggie for us helping with the case.

Observation #2

According to her letter, it is an Aster.

Reggie's Letter

Observation #1

Reggie fills us in on her fears and gratitude for our involvement in the case.

Observation #2

She explains a little bit about the gifts that we received.

Sealed Envelope

containing one document

Observation #1

Since we're supposed to wait for her word, I wonder if this is in case anything happens to Frannie also...

Solution #1 → Who killed Ashley Mendoza?

Kim Barton

Solution #2 → Log into Ashley's blog to upload evidence.

In order to do this, we need to decode the 3 messages included in Frannie's letters from Episodes 4, 5, and 6.

  • The instructions are in the sealed envelope.

🔲 → Two forward, one back, repeat

  • Ashley's "key" is the lapel pin.
  • The right "key" is F.
  • Two forward from "F" is "H".

See Figure 1

⭐ → -1 all, then unscramble

  • Reggie's flower is an Aster.
  • The first and fourth letters are "A" and "E".

See Figure 2

⚪ → Every other

  • The third word on Ashley's gift is "Favorite".
  • The last three letters are "ITE".
  • Reversing this gives us "ETI"
