Ashͪleͤy's Noͦtͭeͤboͦoͦk

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?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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.

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

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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?

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

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

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

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

Angel Silva drove for CarPuul.

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

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

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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).

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

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

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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"

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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

Poͦliͥcͨeͤ Reͤpoͦrͬtͭ

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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?

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.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Once decoded, the message reads:

  • "THE PASSWORD IS SAGUARO."

Saguaro

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

Both of Ashley's contacts' names are encoded.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

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

  • AKJPQ = LEWIS
  • YNWZZPK = FRANNIE

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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.

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.

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

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

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

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #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...

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"

See Figure 3

The password to Ashley's blog is:

  • "HAEETI"
  • *You MUST click on the link in Frannie's message to access the correct page to enter the password.
