    4.3.) Case 3: Tapped Out
    -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

    Finally an interesting case. My personal favorite for this game.

    Let's get it on!

    Marst Family Chalet
    ====================
    Let's explore the place a little bit. Look at the sofas on the right for
    points. Next, look at the mud prints next to the bed. Process to get MUDDY
    FOOTPRINTS, FOUND NEAR THE BODY OF MARY MARST.

    Look at the broken machine next to the body. Get BROKEN PIECES OF MARY MARST'S
    MORPHINE REGULATOR. Look at the bag next to it and process near the top of it
    to find FINGERPRINT FOUND ON THE MORPHINE BAG IN MARY MARST'S HOSPICE ROOM.

    Look at the body and leave the room. Look up for points. Go to the shiny bust
    in the corner. Process the footprints to get MUDDY FOOTPRINTS, FOUND NEAR THE
    BUST OF FRANK MARST. Then look at the bust and process to get SCORING FOUND ON
    BRONZE BUST OF FRANK MARST.

    Go upstairs, approach the door in front of you and then go right for points.
    Let's talk to the nurse now. Question Pauline Liu until you can't.

    Well, could be mercy killing, assisted suicide or outright murder. And we know
    the three suspects already. Pretty cool to see we won't be chasing for
    suspects for once. Classic whoddunnit case.

    Let's see what the other woman has to say. Question Jayne Barrett until you
    can't. Oh, a motive appears. Turns out the victim was quite rich and on her
    death bed. And her brother John ran out of here.

    So since we have no idea where he could be, let's go back to the lab. I
    suggest you visit the usual spots for thoroughness : The lab, the
    interrogation room, the morgue & Brass just like the previous case. You should
    be at 62% Thoroughness.

    Main Lab
    ========
    First, go to the macroscope and compare both footprints. Match!

    Go to the reconstruction table. There's only 3 big pieces you need to fit.
    You'll get ID NUMBER FOR MARY MARST'S MORPHINE REGULATOR & METAL SHAVING,
    FOUND IN DEBRIS OF BROKEN REGULATOR.

    Go to the microscope, compare the bust scoring and the metal shaving. Match!
    Do a chemical search of the shaving. 3,5,6,7. Match!
    Do a medical search on the ID number. You'll find evidence of a likely murder
    weapon.
    Finally, do a search of the fingerprint on the morphine bag.

    So, someone used the busted the regulator and likely killed the victim with
    the button. On top of that, her sister was caught for THAT?! Suspicious, ain't
    it?

    Let's go see Brass for a warrant. Present the fingerprint on the morphine bag
    as evidence.

    Interrogation Room
    ==================
    Question her until she claims not to have touched it. Use the fingerprint to
    shut down her statement.
    Do the same thing when she acts appalled with the idea of assisted suicide.

    Oh. The "I was with them but not really" argument. Continue questioning her.
    Looks like she has a solid and quite convenient alibi. You'll get SECURITY
    SYSTEM RECORDS CONFIRMING JAYNE BARRETT'S ALIBI & PHOTO OF BRAKE VALVE SCORING
    FROM MARY MARST'S CAR ACCIDENT for your troubles.

    Let's go to the morgue for now.

    MORGUE
    ======
    After the never-ending chat with Doc Robbins, you'll get MARY MARST'S
    FINGERPRINTS. Examine her left hand to pick up TINY SHARD OF UNKNOWN MATERIAL,
    FOUND ON THE BACK OF VICTIM'S HAND.

    Main Lab
    ========
    Do a chemichal search on the shard. 1,4,5,7.
    It's a fake nail. You'll get a warrant from Brass but ignore it for now.
    Finally, use the document analysis with the security records.

    !!! Award received : Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!

    Let's go ask Brass for a warrant. Use the shard of fake nail as leverage.

    Interrogation Room
    ==================
    Present her fake nail when she claims it's her real ones.
    Finish questioning her and then leave to the new crime scene.

    Lakeside Docks, Marst Family Chalet
    ===================================
    Scroll to the right and go closer to the motor oil. Take SAMPLE OF MOTOR OIL,
    FOUND BY THE SIDE OF THE LAKE.

    Back out and go downstairs. Check the prints for FOOTPRINTS IN LAKESIDE MUD,
    MADE BY JOHN BARRETT.

    Back out, go near the docks and go into the boat for points. Go back and talk
    to John. Question him and... get blown off basically. Damn punk!

    Go back to the lab.

    Main Lab
    ========
    Let's force him to talk. Go to the macroscope. Compare his prints with the
    ones next to the bust and also to the ones near the bed. Match and match!

    We have a warrant so let's go see Brass and present the footprint as basis.
    It'll take some time so back to the lab.

    Agent Huntby will give you STATUE OF ST. AMBROSE, USED TO MURDER UMBERTO
    SALAZAR & REFERENCE SAMPLE OF BEATRIZ SALAZAR'S DNA. Shouldn't be too hard.
    Check the statue to collect DNA SAMPLE TAKEN FROM A STATUE USED IN THE MURDER
    OF UMBERTO SALAZAR IN 1982.

    Go to DNA and do the match. It's a mat... wait, what? WTF happened?!
    I hope you're like me and feel like cursing agent Huntsby. I'm sure he set us
    up!

    After all that mess, we received the go for the warrant so let's go to the
    new crime scene.

    John Barrett's bedroom
    ======================
    Go to the left of the bed, look into the trash and grab SHARD OF FAKE NAIL,
    FOUND IN JOHN BARRETT'S TRASH. Examine the white substance on it for GENETIC
    MATERIAL ATTACHED TO A FRAGMENT OF FAKE NAIL FOUND IN JOHN BARETT'S TRASH.

    Look into the bed and pick up USED LINGERIE, COLLECTED FROM JOHN BARETT'S
    BEDROOM. Kinky. Too bad we can't pick up the handcuffs as well. Anyway, check
    the inside of the lingerie and find SAMPLE OF FEMALE GENETIC MATERIAL FOUND ON
    LINGERIE TAKEN FROM JOHN BARRETT'S ROOM & SAMPLE OF MALE EJACULATE, TAKEN
    FROM LINGERIE FOUND IN JOHN BARETT'S ROOM.

    Open the wardrobe, look at the shoes and take MUDDY SHOES COLLECTED FROM THE
    BEDROOM OF JOHN BARRETT. Location searched!

    Finally, we need to go back to the lab. By the way, 95% Thoroughness so far.

    Main Lab
    ========
    Go to chemical, compare both shards of fake nail. Match!
    Next, DNA search on the fake nail. #4 is the winner!
    Compare that sample with female one on the lingerie. Match!
    Do a DNA search on the male sample. Winner is #4.

    !!! Award unlocked : A Tough Job

    So our little naughty nurse and John were hiding something. But there's still
    some stuff to do.

    Go to microscope at x10, compare both fake nail fragments. Match!
    Go to macroscope, compare John's shoes with both shoe prints. Match and match!

    More incriminating proof so let's go see Brass and show him the DNA from the
    lingerie.

    Interrogation Room
    ==================
    Contradict her only statement with the nail evidence.
    Contradict her next lie with her DNA from the lingerie.
    Nurse Liu becomes quite talkative and mentions a puppet. Let's find it!

    Lakeside Docks, Marst Family Chalet
    ===================================
    Go to the boat, pick up FINGER PUPPET, OF GREAT SENTIMENTAL VALUE TO JOHN
    BARRETT.

    Marst Family Chalet
    ====================
    Talk with John. He mentions that they talked with Morse Code and that Mary
    would spell Jayne's name when she visited. So let's check the records again.

    Main Lab
    ========
    Do a medical search on those records again.
    Holy crap! She wrote "Jayn" when she died! We'll need to break her alibi now.

    Marst Family Chalet
    ====================
    Talk to John again. He became talkative and mentions another pair of shoes
    in the boat. Makes sense. Who'd leave muddy shoes all over the floor? You
    receive THE KEYS TO A CABINET ON JOHN BARRETT'S BOAT WHERE ANOTHER PAIR OF
    MUDDY SHOES ARE KEPT.

    Location searched!

    Lakeside Docks, Marst Family Chalet
    ===================================
    Go to the boat, unlock the cabinet and take A PAIR OF MUDDY SHOES, LOCKED IN A
    CABINET ON JOHN BARRETT'S BOAT. You should find something near the laces of
    one shoe. Get HAIR, WITH ROOT TAG, FOUND ON MUDDY SHOES FROM JOHN BARRETT'S
    BOAT.

    Back to the lab!

    Main Lab
    ========
    To a DNA search on the hair. #1 is the winner.

    Indeed, she framed poor John. Let's go see Brass for a warrant. Use the hair
    as proof.

    Interrogation room
    ==================
    Contradict her statement with the hair evidence.

    She's good! You get Jayne Barrett's smartphone. You know what to do, right?
    Swab the smudge on the back to find A SMUDGE OF VISCOUS SUBSTANCE ON JAYNE
    BARRETT'S SMARTPHONE. Well, not smart enough to hide that evidence, I say!

    Main Lab
    ========
    Go to chemical and and analyse the motor oil sample. 1,3,6,7.
    Compare it with the smudge. Match!

    Oh! She hid something! Let's go see Brass to get the right tool. Use the oil
    smudge to prove she likely hid something.

    Lakeside Docks, Marst Family Chalet
    ===================================
    Look on the ground near the oil and use the tool. You'll find A HAMMER, FOUND
    BURIED IN LAKESIDE LOCATION WHERE JAYNE BARRETT HAS BEEN & A WRENCH, BURIED
    NEAR LAKE FOR UNKNOWN AMOUNT OF TIME. Examine the hammer to find METAL PIECES
    FOUND IN PITTING ON HEAD OF HAMMER. Check on the bottom of the handle to get
    A FINGERPRINT FOUND ON HAMMER BURIED NEAR THE LAKE.

    Location searched! 100% Thoroughness! Back to the lab!

    Main Lab
    ========
    Go to chemical and compare the metal pieces with the bronze shaving. Match!
    Do a fingerprint search for the one on the hammer. Match to Jayne! Game over!

    Interrogation Room
    ==================
    Contradict her statement with the hammer fingerprint and enjoy the confession.

    fightclubdollI got a warrant for an ultrasound to check underground at the oil pool... (using the oil smudge as justification) ...and had to return to the chalet to find John when I needed him to tell me about the other pair of shoes... BUT APART FROM THAT, I followed the walkthru to the letter... (even got a giggle from the jokes...) and FINALLY finished with all three @ 100% TY TY TY =-) !!!

    SyntrDid everything right, my skill is stuck at 98%
    Posted by Syntr on 13 Jun 13 at 09:09
    IveABrownThumbFor some reason my skill is 100% till the very final thing which is to do the fingerprint search on the hammer and even though I get it right first time it drops to 98% which doesn't make sense at all.
