Question

24 hours earlier...

It was a chill Tuesday morning on the paintball field recently opened by Redrum Extreme Enterprises. Young scientists from the Natural Science Institute (Department of Genetics) had already begun the second hour of their three hour long team building exercise.

The field consisted of natural terrain (a dense growth of trees, plants, and underbrush covering a large area) and a 5 storey high skeleton of an unfinished building.

Andromeda was standing on the top of the building, near the edge looking at the forest through her binoculars. She was in contact with Woon, who was situated in the control room. Woon used to be a homicide detective, but he resigned to start his own security agency with Andromeda as his assistant.

“Talk to me And... what do you see?” Woon asked patiently.

“I was wondering... was it really necessary for the wooded part of the field to be four times bigger than Monaco, besides I can’t see anything from the leaves. We shouldn’t have let them go out there alone”, she sounded worried. “Is everything OK from where you’re watching?” Andromeda asked, pressing her earpiece.

“Um... one of the cameras on the ground level inside the building is repeatedly going on and off”.

“Well... nobody was supposed to be there, but I’ll go check anyway”, said Andromeda and hurried down the stairs.

On the inside, the building was recently decorated with graffiti and still wasn’t opened for paintball.

As she reached ground level, Andromeda slowed down her pace and started carefully approaching the section where the faulty camera was. As she turned around the corner she noticed it right away. David Preston, one of the participants, was laying on the ground, about 6 feet from the wall, face up, still holding his paintball gun. Andromeda hurried, hoping that she’ll be able to help him, but even from distance it looked like nothing can be done.

“Woon, call the security to round the 7 remaining participants up and come quick”, shouted Andromeda.

“Seven?!” Woon was startled.

“Yes Woon... there’s been a murder”, sadly replied Andromeda.

* * * * *

Next to the victim’s body was a huge puddle of blood with the murder weapon in it. His left hand was in his pocked and his right hand was still holding the paintball gun, as mentioned.

As Woon approached, his attention was immediately captured by the alphabet graffiti on the wall near the body.

“Look And... What do you make of this?” asked Woon alternately looking down on the ground and at the wall.

“Do you think that he was trying to tell us something?” Andromeda hesitated.

“I know he was trying to tell us something”, said Woon absolutely convinced. “But I still can’t figure out what”.

“Oh look... There’s something on Jim too”, Andromeda noticed.

“Jim?” Woon sounded confused.

“Yeah... Jim Morrison”, said Andromeda pointing at the graffiti of the legendary cultural icon.

Woon walked towards the graffiti with a vivid interest. He’s mind was racing but he couldn’t figure out this one either.

Suddenly Woon started rummaging through his pockets. “Pfff... I forgot the list with the names”.

Without Woon telling her to do so, Andromeda rushed to the control room to bring the list, while Woon was still standing in front of the graffiti not knowing how to solve the mind boggling question - What was David trying to tell him?!

* * * * *

When Andromeda came back with the list, she found Woon leaned over the victim’s body.

“You checked his left pocket?” Andromeda was curious.

“I didn’t have to, I know what’s in it”, replied Woon as he was approaching Andromeda to take a look at the list. “Thanks And, I can always count on your swift return”, Woon couldn’t help but smile.

“Hey... I’m the muscle, your the brain”, said Andromeda handing over the list.

She noticed an instant spark in his eyes when he unfolded the paper.

“Well of course...” murmured Woon while looking at the list with the names on it.

BLUE TEAM:

1. Bryan Masseter

2. David Preston

3. Grace Trammel

4. Zahra Nehru

RED TEAM:

1. Charlotte Chang

2. James Rafanelli

3. Simon Brass

4. Valery Coleman

Woon then went to the alphabet graffiti. Andromeda, standing next to him, started thinking out loud. “You know what’s funny... I read in the newspaper that paintball is safer than bowl...”

“That’s it... Hurrah! Andromeda, call the police! Oh... the poor guy didn’t stand a chance!” shouted out Woon in one breath interrupting her thought.

“Wha... ah... “, Andromeda was confused. “OK I’ll just stay here... with the body...” she added needlessly, since Woon was already out of her sight and couldn’t hear her anymore.

Andromeda called the police and then took another long look at both of the graffiti and remained puzzled. She just couldn’t figure out what was Woon so excited about.

Can you?

I think we should just ask Woon, since he knows and all.....and Redrum Extreme Enterprises? lol. From what I can gather so far, the graffiti is the alphabet and I got BCGT out of that. GT might be Grace Trammel (might have something to do with the genetics thing) and BC could be Simon Brass or Bryan Masseter, or could be Brass Coleman. I wouldn't have a clue about the Jim Morrison thing. Is it a blue mole? Hmmmm......let me think about it some more and I'll get back to you.

B T is Blue Team and G C is GraCe

also the murder was probably over an expensive Jim Morrison memorabilia that David Preston had in his pocket or genetics stuff he had

the letters on the alphabet graffiti are C G and T, 3 out of the 4 nucleic acids that make up DNA (these are geneticists, right?) A is missing if this is what G T and C represent.

In advance: Sorry! (for the completely useless information your are about to recieve)

Adenine

Guanine

Cytosine

Thymine

So...

A and B...

Andromeda and Bryan (or Mr. Brass) teamed up with Jim Morrison to kill him. He was outnumbered 3 to one, and saw the conveniently placed graffiti. Using his keen eye and perfect shot, he managed to squeak out 5 shots in rapid succession, hitting every one accurately. He then beat his chest, swung across a vine, fought off planes surrounding him, then shouted, "I AM HEMAN!" before he was killed. The killers were too lazy as to dig and hole and toss his body in, so they left him, and hoped that nobody would notice a missing person, or the paintball marks, as they were too lazy to clean them up to.

David was an over-zealous Jim Morrison fan. He was crazy, and frequently placed calls and followed Jim Morrison around. Jim decided to hire his two most trusted friends from high school, Andromeda and Bryan, to kill him.

What I'm trying to figure out is why Woon is smiling when someone has just died. I doubt this is right, but I've narrowed it down to Zahra Nehru and Charlotte Chang. I can only guess that Zahra is a traitor while Chang went rambo on everybody. Zahra gave away her position (in the same place as David) because he wouldn't give her paintballs. His hand was in his pocket because (I know what you thought I was going to say

;) )he had paintballs in his pocket. That's right I said paintballs. Meanwhile, Chang, still in a frenzy, shoots David, and Zahra climbs up a tree to hide. After Chang passes, Zahra jumps down and hits David over the head with her gun (she can't shoot cause she ran out of paintballs). David suffers from an embolism and dies......just kidding. Realising what she has just done, and having no further use of an empty gun, she drops her gun. The gaping head wound sees blood pour out of his head, and just before he dies, with the last ounce of his strength, he shoots on the alphabet and Jim.

I have also come to the conclusion that David is in a wheelchair, which is why he had no chance to fight back.

The only other plausible answer is that Zahra hit David over the head with a bowling ball.

On a more serious note, I think Zahra killed David after some sort of scuffle over the paintballs David had in his pocket, and the weapon used was her gun? I should really be wording this to get something out of a yes or no response.

the letters he shot represent names...

he shot C C G T and the pic of Jim Morrison.

the players in the game are:

BLUE TEAM:

1. Bryan Masseter

2. David Preston

3. Grace Trammel

4. Zahra Nehru

RED TEAM:

1. Charlotte Chang

2. James Rafanelli

3. Simon Brass

4. Valery Coleman

so:

GT could stand for Grace Trammel.

CC could be Charlotte Chang and

jim is short for James (I think) so the 3rd person could be James Rafanelli .

Are they the killers?

I am figuring about a word called.....

I know what you mean, but no... :)

HINT

It could have been just about any face, I put Jim because I liked the graffiti!

Maybe the picture of Jim Morrision shows that the person had a mole on their face?

OK hypothetically if that was true there's no way you could have known which one of them has it ;)
