If the champagne was spilled, could it indicate Wellesley being startled by something? I.e., the murderer?

@Cav, how long after Wellesley's death was his body discovered?

Let's see what I can do. You people focus on evidence; what I want to know is the circumstances of the death. Why was a rusty suit of armor needed, for example?

 

Ask the butler and the wife about any superstitions, etc. that Mr. Wellesley may have had. It may have something to do with the strange situation. Maybe he had a problem with the suit of armor? Maybe there was something symbolic about it. 

 

Logically, the assailant would have killed Mr Wellesley, and then positioned the suit of armor. That seems the only way they could have done it. The question is, why frame a suit of armor? Now, why would one choose a rusty sword to kill him? That seems more a "heat-of-the-moment" sort of crime. Perhaps the second glass suggests Wellesley was drinking casually with somebody, and then they killed him? Under those circumstances, the most likely suspect would be Kaufman, or possibly the wife. 

Just thinking out loud here from a psychological perspective. Might spark an idea.

* And, please ask the wife the same questions I;ve asked the butler...  with the lie detector as well :D

 

* Did the victim had a watch ? Show the watch found in the suit of armor to the wife (without telling her where it was found!! ) and ask her if she recognizes the watch .. with the lie detector working... Same for the butler...

INTERROGATION: GREEN

 

YOU: What time is it, Mr. Green?

 

GREEN: (checks watch) It is ten past eleven.

 

TRUTH.

 

You notice Mr. Green is wearing a watch on his right wrist. You'd be an awful detective if you didn't see him look at his watch. He has tan lines on his left wrist.

 

AUTOPSY: WELLESLEY

 

The body was discovered around 10:00.

 

I will reply to other posts in a few hours, I have to go right now.

 

REMAINING REQUESTS:

 

-Interrogate Mrs. Wellesley with the questions that Yodell asked

-Superstitions Mr. Wellesley had?

-Do the butler and wife recognize the watch?

How do we know that the watch belonged to the murderer? It's pretty hard for your watch to fall off without you noticing, so it was probably put there deliberately. Also, where in the suit was the watch found? I.e. in the wrist part, just loose inside, etc.

I think we're relying rather heavily on a lie detector here. After we talk to everyone, I suggest we go back to the manor and look around some more.

maybe we should examine the trophy room, where the suit of armor was (allegedly) supposed to be.

EDIT: spelling

@Cav What is the time of death, sorry?

 

@Aar *palm* I hadn't even thought about the psychological point of view, lol. It's great to have you on board. :D

 

@All Don't forget, we have a tazer. :ph34r:

@Morningstar For MiKi to abuse the suspects. :/

 

INTERROGATION: MRS. WELLESLEY

 

YOU: Hello, Mrs. Wellesley. I'm sorry for all the trouble.

 

WELLESLEY: No, no, it's fine. I can't believe that he just... It's very hard.


YOU: I understand. I have a few questions for you. Do you mind plugging in this lie detector?

 

WELLESLEY: Of course.

 

You plug her in. For some reason, the lie detector is spazzing.

 

YOU: Do you have a heart condition or-?

 

WELLESLEY: Well, yes, I have a weak heart.

 

The lie detector won't work.

 

YOU: Very well. Did the suit of armor belong in the hallway?

 

WELLESLEY: No, it was in his trophy room. It was in the very back wall.

 

YOU: Was Mr. Rick Wayne in the guest list for the party?

 

WELLESLEY: Yes. My husband badgered me until I finally gave in. He wanted to "give the young man a chance," he said. (scoffs)

 

YOU: Was Mr. Kaufman on the list?

 

WELLESLEY: Why, of course! He's an old family friend.

 

YOU: Did you see either of them at the time of the murder?

 

WELLESLEY: Well, I was in the kitchen, so no.

 

YOU: Was there anyone else in the kitchen with you?


WELLESLEY: Mr. Green and the maids.

 

YOU: Is there anyone who would want Mr. Wellesley dead?

 

WELLESLEY: Well, sure! He was a very arrogant man. I know we musn't speak ill of the dead, but he made very many enemies in his life.

 

YOU: Was Mr. Wellesley superstitious?

 

WELLESLEY: (chuckles) No, but we always had this joke, Mr. Kaufman, my husband and I. When we were young, they were courting me. They would fight these fake duels between themselves, calling themselves the knights and me the princess. Mr. Wellesley always won. He always believed that someone was going to try to poison him. (clamps up) Oh, goodness. Maybe that's what killed him! Was he poisoned, Inspector?

 

YOU: I can assure you that poison was not the cause of death. Do you recognize this watch?

 

You hold out the watch in the Zip-loc.

 

WELLESLEY: Uh... yes. I believe it's Mr. Green's.

 

INTERROGATION: GREEN

 

YOU: Was Mr. Wellesley a superstitious man?

 

GREEN: I believe not. He was always very analytical. Not religious. Everything could be proven, he always said.

 

TRUTH.

 

AUTOPSY: WELLESLEY

 

The time of death was 10:00 PM.

 

OBSERVATION: THE TROPHY ROOM

 

You enter the trophy room. Ancient goblets line the top shelves, and the rest of the walls are covered in moose and reindeer heads. Raccoon skins are draped over chairs. He must've wiped out half of every local species in the Northeast. There's a brick and a small platform in the back. There is a small plaque hanging over where the head of the suit of armor would be. "Victory belongs to the most persevering. - Napoleon Bonaparte."

 

Would you like to observe anything else?
