Agreement

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

This is simply the agreement of Listening Friends of America to take in Penny as their ward.

Autopsy Report 1

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

This is the autopsy report for Kenny's body, authorized by his sister.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

He had to be identified by his fingerprints and dental records?

  • Was his face that messed up from the gunshot that his own sister couldn't identify him otherwise?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

White underwear briefs. 🤣

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

He seemed dressed to impress.

  • Why would he be in this attire to clean his gun?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #5

Kenny sustained the gunshot wound to the right side of his head.

  • The killer had to have been standing to his side. Penny most likely would have shot from the front if she had done it.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #6

The point of firing was no more than 4 inches away.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #7

Kenny had alcohol in his system.

  • Angela testified he would not clean his gun under the influence.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #8

Kenny did not shoot himself.

  • The angle of the entry and exit wounds is consistent with someone standing above him while he was sitting, and pointing the gun to his temple at a 45-degree angle.
  • Suicide would have been 90 degrees.

Autopsy Report 2

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

This is the autopsy report for Gregory, authorized by his aunt.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

Gregory was also identified by his fingerprints and dental records, despite his face being untouched and completely intact.

Charge of Court

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

These are instructions for the jury on how to enter their verdict.

  • Their verdict was Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity.

Email 1

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

This is an email from Angela, Kenny's sister, to Kenny in response to an email from him. In this email, Angela openly expresses her disdain for Penny.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

It is revealed that Penny wished to pursue a career as an artist more than being there for her son.

Email 2

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

This is an email from Kenny to his wife, Penny.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

They had an argument about Penny wanting to pursue an art career and Kenny is apologizing for his behavior.

  • If Penny did kill her family, her motive was she felt her family was holding her back.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

It looks like Kenny copied and pasted a line from his sister's email. Why?

Official Plea of the Defense

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

Penny's attorney, Justine Graham, beseeched the jury to take into consideration Dr. Kohler's expert input in the case and find Penny not guilty by reason of insanity.

Psychiatric Evaluation

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

The evaluation was performed by Dr. Henry Kohler, the same person who performed the psychiatric interview.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

He found that Penny is a paranoid schizophrenic.

Psychiatric Interview

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

Something Penny says contradicts what she said in her letter to us.

  • In her letter, she said she came in to see Kenny shoot himself. In the interview, she states that she came in to find him dead already.

Sentencing Order

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

At trial, Penny was found Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity.

  • Did she shoot her husband after seeing that he had shot and killed their son?

Testimony

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

This is a transcription of Angela's testimony in court.

Testimony

Direct Examination

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

Angela testified that she spent part of the day with Gregory before bringing him home. When she entered the house, everything seemed fine despite Penny and Kenny's argument.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

Angela says that she and Kenny were very close as children but drifted apart after he became married and had a child.

  • Was she so jealous to the point of killing her own nephew and brother?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Kenny had given Angela the password to the gun safe, meaning she had access to the gun.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

Angela says that Penny didn't seem to want to have a child. Even after Gregory was born, she didn't seem to grasp that she had a family and could no longer live as a single person.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #5

Penny wouldn't even take some money out of her savings to help her son when he was sick?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #6

Angela gave Kenny the money for Gregory's medical bills.

  • Did Kenny ever pay her back?
  • Was Angela angry that she wasn't "rewarded" for her efforts?

Testimony

Cross-Examination

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

Angela had no proof of being home during her brother's murder.

  • She had opportunity.

Trial Summary

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

It appears that Kenny accidentally caused the death of Gregory, shot to the chest.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

It is believed that when Penny discovered Gregory, she took the gun from Kenny and shot him in the head.

  • This doesn't really make sense. If she didn't give two shits about her family, would she really be distraught enough to kill her husband over the death of their son?
  • My theory is Kenny's sister grew more and more jealous of Penny and Gregory. She got to the point of murderous rage and decided to punish Penny for stealing Kenny from her. She killed Kenny because she could never fully have him to herself again. Penny found the bodies and her brain could not accept what she was seeing. Her brain tricked her into thinking she saw Kenny kill himself.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Penny is a well-educated, intelligent woman.

  • She sports a Bachelor's degree and an IQ above 100.

The website was set up by Kenny's sister, Angela, who believes Penny killed Kenny.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #1

Visiting this website, as well as sending Kingsley an email, results in a message that he is too busy with his current case to pay attention to anything else.

In this letter, Penny expresses her doubts about our existence. She borders on conspiratorial thoughts.

She mentions her Inspector, Vernon, helping her get "conveniences".

  • What does she mean by this?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Out of the blue, Penny says she likes to use fresh soap.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

What help is she to Vernon?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #5

Penny says "whatever four" instead of "whatever for"...

  • What is the significance of "four"?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #6

Since the only oddities in this letter are the mention of soap and the misuse of "four", let's try counting every fourth word of that line.

To solve the puzzle on the back of Sven's card, make note of his last sentence.

  • "Always advance from the beginning of the suit."

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

Taking the first letter of each suit, shift forward from that letter by the number in that box.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

For example, the first box is an 8 of spades.

  • The first letter of the suit (spades) is "S". So, you would shift 8 letters forward from "S", resulting in "A".

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

Jack = 11, Queen = 12, King = 13

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #5

Once decoded, the message reads:

  • "AUTHORIZATION CODE IS DAYBREAK. ONCE FRIEND ENTERS CODES, RELEASE ORDERS WILL TRIGGER. GOOD LUCK, PENNY."

It is a Queen of Hearts.

  • Penny used to be Sven's Queen of Hearts. Now she wants to be ours.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

The letter "T" is drawn on the back of this card.

  • This is a hint at how to solve the puzzle on the back of Sven's note.
  • After shifting correctly, the Queen of Hearts results in "T".

Penny took these photos after she killed her husband and child. She then hid them before being caught.

  • She sent them to us as mementos.
  • *The writers decided to not depict photos of dead children, therefore we only see Gregory's hand and arm while we see Kenny's head and bullet wound.

  • HA!

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

With all this "thorough investigating" going on, I hope they never link the breach back to us. It would be linked to Vernon, since we used his credentials to hack into the system.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

He signs his letter with "Audis dicis veritas" which translates to "Hearing is truth".

In the last two sentences of the first paragraph, certain letters are bolded.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

This is a Francis Bacon (Baconian) code. The clue is "France is".

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

The way this code will work is by replacing every bolded letter with "B" and every non-bolded letter with "A", beginning after the colon. Group into sets of five letters.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

Solving this code gives us a website.

Penny wrote to Felix from Paris?

  • Why?
  • She gives him so many clues to track her down and even implicates us in the process.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

In this letter, Penny reveals that it was Felix who was the "beneficiary" paying off Kingsley and other officials to drop her case.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

Why in the world is she still claiming her innocence?

  • She sent us photographic proof of her crimes.

    • Was I right that Penny paid her a little visit!?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #2

Last known activity was that she might stop by her brother's house.

  • Did she happen to go there at the same time Penny stopped by?

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

The report states Angela owned a gray Toyota Prius, the same vehicle Penny was witnessed driving and abandoned at the airport.

This is Penny's blog site from Paris.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #3

She reveals that she left Angela's body in the car when she ditched it at the airport.

  • Why was this fact left out of Kelly's report to Felix?
  • And she even posts a pic of the body in the trash bags and tarp she purchased at Luna's General Store. The nerve of this woman!
  • This is the only pic on the blog that can be clicked on to reveal a more colorful detailed rendering.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #4

Calling the phone number at the bottom of the blog site sends us to Penny's voicemail.

  • Interesting.

Oʙsᴇʀᴠᴀᴛɪᴏɴ #5

Penny speaks some sentences in French. Translated, she is saying:

  • "I am finally free. I killed my husband and my son, both of them, it was me. And I regret nothing."
  • "Goodbye, my friend."
