Mr Crimson lives with his wife and three children. The children get really crazy when they play outside. One winter they were throwing snowballs at each other and one of the brothers threw a snowball a little too hard and hit Mr. Fagans house and broke a window! Now the three boys didn't want to tell Mr. Fagan who threw the snowball so Mr. Fagan threated that he would tell the boys mother and get them all in trouble.

Later that day Mr. Fagan found a note on his door that read: " You want to know who broke your window? ________ Crimson"

Mr. Fagan knew right away who broke the window!

How did Mr Fagan know?

This is my first puzzle, so excuse me if there are more than one solutions (which I overlooked) or something that makes this very obvious :)

Nice attempt, but really hard to guess the solution that you were looking for from what was given
