Due to my insane need to categorize, I've put together all the known evidence provided by Cavenglok. Glok, could you put this into your signature and add on info whenever you post more? Makes referencing evidence a lot easier.

 

Setting of the Crime

 

Talk with Harrison +Observation of 2nd floor hallway

 

Green Interrogation Prelude (no questions), some autopsy questions answered

 

2nd floor hallway, Autopsy 1, Analysis of Hair

 

Green interrogation 1, Autopsy 2

 

Green Interrogation 2

 

Wellesley Interrogation 1, Green interrogation 3, Autopsy 3, Trophy Room Observation

 

Wellesley Interrogation 2, Autopsy (sort of) 4

 

Wellesley Interrogation 3

 

Summary of known evidence

 

Wellesley Interrogation 4, Evidence of Sarah Hoover, Green Interrogation 4, Observation of Suit of Armor

 

Howard Interrogation 1, Green Interrogation 5

 

Howard Interrogation 2 (short)

 

Howard Interrogation 3 (Drunk)

 

Review of the Evidence 2

 

Back to business. We've apparently forgotten about poor Sarah Hoover; she said that Wellesley was definitely not in the kitchens (assuming that if she had been, it would have been an unusual occurrence and therefore Hoover would have remembered it). Thus, we can safely say that Mrs. Wellesley was NOT in the kitchens, as previously thought.

Also, apparently Wellesley said not to go near the trophy room. Things are looking suspicious, but there are a lot of unanswered questions. Get a list of statements (just say, x people said so, or that everyone said so, etc.) from all the maids/staff as to whether Mrs. Wellesley said not to go near the trophy room.

 

On the part of Green, we have the watch situation as well as the fact that he apparently wasn't in the kitchens, and him telling Howard not to drink (but that could just be pride).

It doesn't all fit in the sig. If you can change it so it fits, I'd appreciate it very much.

 

INTERROGATION: WELLESLEY (remember, she can't wear the lie detector)

 

YOU: Did you see Mr. Wayne at all anywhere?

 

WELLESLEY: Uh... no, I did not.

 

YOU: Do you have any idea where he might have been?

 

WELLESLEY: He was probably bothering John about that interview he wanted.

 

YOU: Is there anyone else who knew about your husband's nightmares?

 

WELLESLEY: Hm... no. Just me, John and Mr. Green.

 

YOU: Did your husband have any other regular nocturnal activities?

 

WELLESLEY: Not really. He snored. (chuckles)

 

YOU: How was your husband's mental health?

 

WELLESLEY: Oh, he was fine. Just a normal old fellow. Very old, in fact.

 

YOU: Before tonight, has the suit of armor been anywhere it shouldn't be?
 

WELLESLEY: Hm... I believe not.

 

YOU: A few witnesses told us that you were not present in the kitchen.

 

WELLESLEY: (abruptly) Who said that?

 

YOU: Uh... I am not legally permitted to give that kind of information.

 

WELLESLEY: (chuckles nervously) Oh, yes. Of course.

 

YOU: Were you in the trophy room?

 

WELLESLEY: Sorry?

 

YOU: What were you doing in the trophy room at 10:00 PM?

 

WELLESLEY: Oh, you think I killed my husband? How can you even suggest that?

 

YOU: Please Mrs. Wellesley, calm do-

 

WELLESLEY: HE WAS MY HUSBAND, YOU SON OF A B*TCH!

 

(after calming her down, she manages to speak again)

 

WELLESLEY: I told you, I was in the kitchen. 

 

YOU: So you don't know what might've happened in the trophy room?

 

WELLESLEY: No, no idea.

 

YOU: Would you like some scotch?

 

WELLESLEY: Oh, you're too kind, but I don't drink. It's bad for my health. 

 

OBSERVATION: WELLESLEY'S HANDS

 

They aren't rusty. In fact, quite pale. You do spot one bruise on one of her knuckles.

 

INTERROGATION: KAUFMAN

 

YOU: Hello, Mr. Kaufman.

 

KAUFMAN: Yes, hello.

 

YOU: Where were you at 9:30?

 

KAUFMAN: I was having dinner with the family.

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Where were you at 10:00?

 

KAUFMAN: I was dancing. There was a beautiful lady, and we danced.

 

LIE.

 

YOU: Where was Mr. Wellesley tonight?

 

KAUFMAN: I'm not quite sure. I saw him, we talked for a bit, then he went upstairs in a fit.

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Where was Mrs. Wellesley tonight?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, probably... in the kitchen. I didn't see her.

 

LIE.

 

YOU: Where was Mr. Green?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, nice fellow. He was handing out drinks and such. He said he had to go to the kitchen, sort of suspicious, hm?

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: What did Mr. Wellesley sue you for?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, something about plagiarism. It was complete rubbish.

 

LIE.

 

YOU: For how much money?

 

KAUFMAN: A few thousand dollars, it's all in the past now.

 

LIE.

 

YOU: Are you familiar of the rare orchid in the trophy room?

 

KAUFMAN: What do you mean, boy? There aren't any flowers in his trophy room!

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: You seem familiar with law. How would I go about charging the reporter for murder?

 

KAUFMAN: ...I am not familiar with this area. I believe that is up to you to decide. You should know how to do this by now, shouldn't you?

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Have you heard of the suit of armor?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, the murderer's costume. I'm not quite sure what it's all about, though. Do you have any idea?

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Would you like some scotch?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, yes, please.

 

OBSERVATION: KAUFMAN'S HANDS

 

Wrinkled, old. No sign of rust.

 

INTERROGATION: WAYNE

 

YOU: Hello, Mr. Wayne.

 

WAYNE: I swear I didn't kill him, I swear!

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: As you're a reporter, I take it you're very observant. Can you tell me if there was anything out of the ordinary?

 

WAYNE: Well, all I noticed was Mr. Wellesley walking upstairs. He looked quite frightened by something.

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Where were you at 10:00 PM?

 

WAYNE: Well, this was all at 10:00 PM. I saw a chance to get him alone, so naturally I went upstairs and tried to get my interview. But, when I was up there, I saw a suit of armor stabbing him in the back. I ran downstairs and I cried for help. By the time we came back, the murderer was gone, and the suit of armor was just kneeling there.

 

LIE.

 

YOU: Who was with you?

 

WAYNE: No one. I wanted to get that interview alone.

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Did you get an interview with Mrs. Wellesley or Mr. Kaufman? Anyone at all?

 

WAYNE: Well, I wasn't very interested in what they had to say. Only Mr. Wellesley.

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Are you aware that Mr. Wellesley is a sleep-walker?

 

WAYNE: No, but that might be an interesting note for my article.

 

TRUE.

 

(I'll do the rest in a few hours)

OBSERVATION: WELLESLEY'S HANDS

 

They aren't rusty. In fact, quite pale. You do spot one bruise on one of her knuckles.

 

Notes: We need to ask her about her knuckles,  take note if any of the suspects have suspicious bruises or else we could assume that it came into something a little more solid but rusty.

 

INTERROGATION: KAUFMAN

 

YOU: Where were you at 10:00?

 

KAUFMAN: I was dancing. There was a beautiful lady, and we danced.

 

LIE.

Notes: Possibly covering for being in trophy room see note below

YOU: Where was Mr. Wellesley tonight?

 

KAUFMAN: I'm not quite sure. I saw him, we talked for a bit, then he went upstairs in a fit.

 

TRUE.

Notes: Need to ask what they were talking about

YOU: Where was Mrs. Wellesley tonight?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, probably... in the kitchen. I didn't see her.

 

LIE.

Notes: need to ask Mrs. Wellesley about seeing Kaufman

YOU: What did Mr. Wellesley sue you for?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, something about plagiarism. It was complete rubbish.

 

LIE.

Notes: Need to know if he was lying about plagiarism or he was lying about it being rubbish

YOU: For how much money?

 

KAUFMAN: A few thousand dollars, it's all in the past now.

 

LIE.

Notes: Need to know if he is lying about the amount or if it is currently an issue

YOU: Are you familiar of the rare orchid in the trophy room?

 

KAUFMAN: What do you mean, boy? There aren't any flowers in his trophy room!

 

TRUE.

Notes: Gotcha! You have been into the trophy room!

YOU: You seem familiar with law. How would I go about charging the reporter for murder?

 

KAUFMAN: ...I am not familiar with this area. I believe that is up to you to decide. You should know how to do this by now, shouldn't you?

 

TRUE.

 

YOU: Have you heard of the suit of armor?

 

KAUFMAN: Oh, the murderer's costume. I'm not quite sure what it's all about, though. Do you have any idea?

 

TRUE.

I actually meant "How would one go about charging a suit of amour with murder?"  but that is fine

INTERROGATION: WAYNE

 

YOU: Where were you at 10:00 PM?

 

WAYNE: Well, this was all at 10:00 PM. I saw a chance to get him alone, so naturally I went upstairs and tried to get my interview. But, when I was up there, I saw a suit of armor stabbing him in the back. I ran downstairs and I cried for help. By the time we came back, the murderer was gone, and the suit of armor was just kneeling there.

 

LIE.

Notes: Excited? Freaked out? or actual lie?

YOU: Who was with you?

 

WAYNE: No one. I wanted to get that interview alone.

 

TRUE.

Notes: I wonder who this might provide an alibi for? Need to ask if he knows where Mr Green, Mr Kaufman and Mrs W where during all this.

Oh; that's clever. That would explain a lot.

I'm getting an idea of the situation now. From what I can glean, Mrs. Wellesley was having an extramarital affair with Kaufman (or something along those lines)

 

But I'll get to that later. Some important points to note;

  • Wayne claims that Wellesley looked "frightened", while Kaufman says he went off in a fit.
  • Kaufman claims he knew the inside of the trophy room
  • Mrs. Wellesley's deflection of the question about her whereabouts

There's another point I noted; the fact that the drink at the scene of the crime was a champagne; it's evident that Wellesley was a man who liked his scotch. Who had the champagne?

Another detail is the apparent speediness of the events. According to Wayne, Wellesley goes upstairs and is almost immediately killed; this is rather important. 

Also notice that Wellesley went up in a huff; this rather muddles the idea of Green doing it; where was the time for him to get into costume?

 

ACTION: Surely there's a public record of the Wellesley/Kaufman case. I'm rather surprised we didn't get the file immediately.

For Glok:

That's just a link to the post. Best I can do. Maybe just put that in the sig, with the date of how accurate it is. Then, when I get around to adding more just use the new link and new date.

Okay, I have to go right now, so I haven't written down the responses yet, but both of you! Very clever! Well done, my friends. I won't tell you where you're right or wrong, but I'll tell you both of you have a lot of things right and wrong. And with that cryptic message, I will see you tomorrow afternoon in my time.

@Cavenglock Is it possible for someone to don the suit of amour and move in it at any reasonable pace?  I have kept in mind that it is rusty. Also are there people who for whatever reason cannot fit into the suit of armour?  How much noise/vibrations would a rusty heavy suit of armour  make when being worn in this fashion? Was Mr Wellesley wearing a hearing-aid/glasses or have you seen them anywhere?

Do you think you are pregnant?

Does Micheal know or would you like to reconsider that offer of scotch?

Would you like to reconsider your answer about where you were at 10pm?

 

MR KAUFMAN

Is "Dancing" what they call it nowdays?

How long has your affair been going on?

Would you like to reconsider your answer about where you were at 10pm?

CORONOR

Can you determine if Mr Wellesley was conscious at time of death?

 

Theory:  Mr Wellesley walked in on his wife and Mr Kaufman in the trophy room.  Mrs Wellesley knocked him unconscious. Both her Kaufman (possibly with the help of Mr Green) set up the knight.  The reporter caught them in the act but was persuaded not to talk in exchange for a signed confession previously written by Mr Wellesley about the court case with Mr Kaufman.
