•   The Norwegian lives in the 1st house so he lives in A and the house next to it is blue. So
    the blue house is B.
•   The green house is on the left of the white house so it is not A or C and the person in the
    green house drinks coffee so not in C; thus the green house is D with coffee and the white
    house is E.
•   The Brits live in the red house so not A, B, D, or E thus the Brits live in C and drinks
    milk. By Elimination house A where the Norwegian lives is yellow, he smokes Dunhill,
    and the man who has the horse lives in the blue house at C.
•   The Dane drinks tea so it is not in house A, C, or D; the Dane lives in B or E.
•   One who smokes Blue Master drinks beer so is not in house A, C, or D, so also lives in B
    or E; thus the Norwegian in A drinks water, which leaves the one house B – blue and
    horses as one who smokes blends.
•   The Swede keeps dogs so not in B and the German smokes Prince so not in B. Thus the
    Dane lives in house B and he deinks tea so by elimination, man in white house at D drinks
    beer, and smokes Blue Master.
•   The German smokes Prince, so not the man in house E; he lives in D and the Swede must
    live in E and keeps dogs, the Brit in red house C whod drinks milk; smokes Pall Mall and

• It was midnight on Christmas Eve when the maintenance staff of
  Kimble‟s came to work in the deserted department store. When they
  arrived at the North Pole display, they discovered every child‟s worst
  nightmare, the lifeless body of Santa Claus. He was in a storage
  room, his head bashed in by the butt end of a .44 revolver. Santa‟s
  off-duty name was Rudolph Pringle. “That‟s Rudolph‟s revolver,” the
  manager informed the police. “He started carrying it after a six-year-
  old pulled a knife on him.” “Do you know anyone who would want to
  see Rudolph dead beside the six-year-old?” The manager cleared his
  throat. “Santa‟s been having a lot of fights with his elves. I know
  three elves who‟d threatened to kill him.” The detective had the
  murder weapon bagged. Then he placed it on the center of the
  interview table, right where the suspects would be forced to look at it.
  “Rudolph Pringle has been murdered,” he informed each elf. “What
  do you know about it?” Joe Winters shivered and couldn‟t stop staring
  at the gun. “I know nothing. Some of the guys had trouble with
  Rudolph. But he was always nice to me.
               Who killed Santa Claus? Read there is a 2nd page
I left the store at nine, right when it closed. I was too tired to change,
so I wore my costume home. No one said a word on the subway.”
“Rudolph was a pig, snarled Sam Petrie, the second elf. “If he pushed
me to far, I wouldn‟t smash his head in. I‟d sue. What‟s the use of a
dead Santa when a live one can be made to pay?” Robert Goldstein
was the smallest elf. On hearing the news, he burst into tears. “Last
week, Rudolph started a fight. He said I was too slow bringing in the
kids. He slapped me on the head and called me all sorts of Names.
But I didn‟t kill him.”The detective called in his assistant. “Well, we
have our killer,” he said. “All I had to do was use a little psychology.”

     • Sam Petrie, he knew that Rudolph had been
       hit. Rudolph had a gun but Sam grabbed the
       gun and hit Rudolph over the head.

• A black Cadillac tore around the busy street corner, slowing as it
  approached the steps of the courthouse. The tinted, passenger-side
  window rolled down and a semi-automatic handgun poked its barrel
  out. Pauly Gillespie, mob informant and protected witness, stood
  frozen in this tracks. Pauly‟s FBI bodyguards threw themselves on
  top of him, but not before 2 shots erupted and Pauly had taken a
  bullet in the shoulder. The Cadillac screeched across 2 lanes of
  traffic. But it made the mistake of turning left down an alley and
  getting stuck behind a double-parked delivery van. The 2 hit men
  scrambled out and raced away – right into the arms of 4 off-duty
  officers. Having heard the shots and the sirens, the officers grabbed
  the running men and held them for the FBI. Agent Brown was new
  and was asked to clear the Cadillac out of the alley so that traffic
  could continue. Brown adjusted the rearview mirror, backed the car
  out and drove it around to where his colleagues were Mirandizing
  their suspects.

   MI – CSI – Agent Brown‟s Shining Moment #2
Brown stood and watched. One of the suspects was tall, lean and
  sullen. The other was a good 5 inches shorter, Agent Brown‟s
  height. He was big through the chest but short. He spoke
  animatedly, gesturing freely with his hands. The director was
  upset since the suspects had ditched the gun and their gloves in
  the alley. The director asked which criminal had been the
  shooter. “Not me,” said the large, short man. “Not me,” said
  the lean, sullen one. Agent Brown smiled. “I know who the
  shooter was,” he said softly. WHO WAS THE SHOOTER?

 The shooter was the smaller man, Agent Brown had to move
 the mirror when he got into drive. The larger man was the
 driver and the shorted person was the shooter.
Vince McCormick was a big, angry man just a month shy of
  retirement. On Super Bowl Sunday, his 2 sons Vince
  Junior and Sonny came over as usual. Before the game,
  the boys were in the kitchen, helping their mother fix
  snacks. Junior heated nachos in the microwave and Sonny
  poured pretzels and potato chips into bowl. Mari
  McCormick was mixing ice, ginger ale and rye together into
  glasses. “Make mine strong,” yelled her husband. Junior
  saw bruises on his mother’s arm. “Did he do that?” he
  asked. Marie did not answer. “What’ll you do when he
  retires and is here all day long?” Sonny asked. “ No one in
  our family gets divorced,” Marie said. “Oh dear. I forgot
  which is your father’s. Taste the drinks, Sonny.” Sonny
  tasted the drinks, nearly choking on the 3rd drink. “ It’s
  about 2x as strong as the others.” “Give it to me.” Vince
  was standing behind them, grabbing for his drink. “Making
  me come in here,” he muttered. Sonny carried in the
  snack bowls while Junior took in the nachos, just in time
  for kick-off.

• All 4 sat around the T.V., munching on the snacks and sipping
  their drinks. It was near the end of the 1st quarter when
  Vince Senior bellowed, “Get me another.” Marie was in the
  kitchen working on the refill when she heard a gasp, then a
  moan. She returned to find her husband in his easy chair
  dying. “A strong fast-acting poison,” the homicide detective
  said. “two to five minutes. And yet they all claimed to be
  eating the same things. They’re lying, covering up for each
  other. “Not necessarily,” a sergeant ventured. “It could’ve
  happened just the way they said?” How was Vince

   The poison was not in the food – all of them ate the same
   food. The poison could not have been in his drink
   because Sonny drank to see which drink it was. The
   poison was in the ice that melted during the 1 quarter.
The Valentine’s Day party was a tradition. Each year Henry
  and Bitsy V. invited their friends into their Park Avenue
  home. After a wonderful dinner, the couples went to the
  drawing room. The men drank port, the women drank
  champagne, and each couple exchanged gifts. George E.
  outdid himself, presenting his wife with a ruby necklace.
  The women sighed enviously while the men added up the
  cost and wondered how their wives would react to their
  own less extravagant gifts. When Henry’s turn came, he
  told Bitsy to close here eyes and led her over to the
  windows. When Bitsy opened her eyes, she saw the
  billboard and gasped. “To Bitsy, the most beautiful woman
  in my world. Love, Henry.” “You don’t know how much
  trouble it was getting a billboard put up on Park Avenue,”
  Henry said. George E. was the first to notice the missing
  necklace. “Stolen,” he gasped, holding up the empty jewel
  box. “Nobody leave the room.”

  MI – CSI – The Vanishing Love Token
Everyone assured everyone else that there couldn’t be a
  thief among the. Systematically, they searched the
  room. There was nothing in the empty champagne bottle.
  Nothing on the thick Persian carpet. The crystal
  decanter set was in place and all the containers filled to
  the top with whiskey, port, and bourbon. The glasses
  were examined, as were the folds of the red tied-back
  curtains flanking the locked windows. They even
  inspected the red crystal chandelier. The butler quickly
  rounded up the dog and cat, stuck his fingers down their
  throats and then checked out their favorite hiding
  places. All guests were searched and nothing was found.
  Where is the necklace????? Who was the thief???

The butler took the necklace while the guests were looking at the
billboard and put it in the decanter of port. The color of the port
matched the color of the necklace.

              MI – CSI --- Friends at the Office
• Detective Gibson was visiting his accountant in a small,
  seedy office building when he heard noises coming from
  above. First there were angry voices. Then came a
  scream, followed by a heavy thud. Gibson raced
  upstairs and found an open door. Wiley Kline, a
  lawyer, lay on the floor of his office, a switchblade
  sticking out of his chests. Gibson called in the murder
  and waited on his partner to examine the office. Not
  far from the victim’s hand was a half-smoked cigarette.
  On the floor beside the cigarette were a turned-over
  wastebasket, a cheap lighter, and a blank notepad. On
  the desk they noticed a telephone, a pen, a shot glass
  smelling of bourbon, and an ashtray filled with
  cigarette butts and burned matches. “ It’s funny how
  none of his neighbors poked their heads out,” Gibson
  observed. The floor contained 3 other offices. The first
  office had Helen Hurly a massage therapist. She told
  them she was relaxing between appointments.
“I didn’t hear a thing,” she claimed, pointing to the stereo
   headphones she’d just removed. The second office had
   Jackson Cod, an artist. In one hand he held a
   paintbrush, in the other an unlit cigar. “Sure I heard
   the scream. But I was right in a moment of inspiration.
   Besides you hear all sorts of things in the building.”
   Jackson held out his cigar. “Either of you fellows got a
   light. The 3rd office had Lionel Wafer, a chiropractor,
   also between appointments. “I heard a scream. What
   happened?” Gibson asked Lionel why he was holding
   an ice pick. “Oh, I’m defrosting,” Lionel said and
   returned to the old, ice-ladened refrigerator in the

• Mona Fisher turned and gazed at Jerry, sleeping next to her on the

  couldn‟t believe she was married to such a catch. Their flight from

  Jerry Fisher shoveled the snow from the driveway, kissed Mona

  man more romantic and honest. Why would anyone want to kill
  him?” Jerry‟s law partner Kyle Dyce stated, “Jerry was a man I
  trusted completely, and a darn good lawyer. He was still working
  when I left. About 6 pm I walked across to the health club.
I didn‟t work out, just used the tanning bed. I suppose I was jealous
   of Jerry‟s great tan. The lieutenant spent the next hour going
   through papers and discovered that Jerry Fisher had been
   skimming from the law firm. He also found a telephone number
   for Gail Lowenski. The attractive redhead was devastated by
   Jerry‟s death and even more devastated to hear that he‟d been
   married. “We were together just this afternoon, at my apartment.
   The louse told me he was single. For 2 months he was stringing
   me on. I was so sure he was going to propose. Who did
   Lieutenant Miller know had done the crime.

Jerry Fisher had a tan from his vacation and his wedding ring had
been on when he was on vacation. When he went to Gail‟s house he
would take off his ring and it was obvious that he was married. Ms.
Lowenski was the murderer.

• All evidence pointed to Frank Fortini. “he has
  motive,” the homicide chief told his men. “Frank’s
  Uncle Gregor, the victim, just won the state lottery.
  Frank and his brothers are Gregor’s only relatives
  and would inherit the $14 million prize. “also, Frank
  had opportunity. Gregor was a paranoid guy living in
  an isolated cabin. He always kept his doors locked
  and hated strangers. Since there was no forced entry
  and no sign of a struggle, we know Gregor was
  attacked by someone he knew and trusted. “To top it
  off, we found direct evidence at the cabin. There were
  fresh tire tracks, perfectly matching the tires from
  Frank’s mountain bike. And…” The chief was getting
  angry. “And we found a ticket from today’s lottery
  near the scene – with Fran’s prints on it.
• :The only trouble is…”The chief pounded the table. “He
  has an alibi. On the night Gregor was killed, Frank was
  breaking into Avalon Hardware. Normally there‟s be
  nothing to steal. But the store manager neglected to take the
  money to the bank. An alert patrolman looked through the
  window and saw Frank prying open the register. The
  coroner says Gregor was killed at the same time Frank was
  being read his rights” “frank‟s a petty robber. He‟s steal
  the pennies from your loafers, would could count on it. But
  he‟d never kill. Frank‟s other brother was a teller at
  Avalon‟s only bank. “I saw frank right after I got off work
  said Emil. We had a couple of drinks. Frank seemed a little
  hare up for money but that is normal. Frank stated “I keep
  my bike in an unlocked garage. Anyone could have used it.
  As for my uncle I have not seen him in a week. Who did
  the chief believe was the thief.
   Frank‟s brother.

• Inspector Matthews glanced around the kitchen of the
  weekend cottage. There was cold coffee in the pot, an ice
  cube tray half filled with melted cubes, and a small amount
  of ash in an ashtray. “All right Mrs. Thurl. Tell me again.”
  The neighbor looked uncomfortable. “I had just come
  home. It was about 8 PM. I heard a car pull into the
  driveway next door. I mean here, at this house. When I
  looked out, 2 people had arrived and were walking toward
  the kitchen door. I recognized the woman as Myra Lovesy
  a rather fat…The man I couldn‟t see. They were fighting.
  The man grabbed Myra‟s throat. She collapsed. Then the
  man unlocked the door and walked in. It took you 15
  minutes to get here from when I called.” Myra‟s 3 sons
  were in the house when police arrived.
• “The place has been closed for the last month,” Sherman
  Lovesy stated. “I arrived early this afternoon. No one else
  was here. I parked in the garage. I went to the basement
  and turned on the electricity. In the kitchen, I smoked a
  cigarette and then I went to my room and took a nap. “I
  was the 1st to arrive,” his brother Donald protested. “I
  parked behind the garage. The electricity had never been
  turned off. We often forget to do that. I made coffee, then
  took a cup to the library and I fell asleep.” The 3rd brother
  declared his early arrival. “I parked in the garage.
  Sherman‟s car was not there! I went into the basement,
  turned on the electricity and then went up to make a drink
  Mother said she would arrive with 1 of my brothers.” 1 of
  the sons was lying. 1 son had driven his mother, fought
  with her and strangled her. WHODUNIT???
• Sherman and Donald could both be telling
  the truth since their cars were parked in
  different areas. Luther is lying. He could
  not have gone into the basement, turned on
  the electricity, and then gone to make a
  drink. There would have been no ICE!!!!
                   Maria’s last Clue
• Sergeant Vacca had been on the homicide squad for 8
  years and had never run into a deathbed clue. Not once
  had he heard a dying man blurt out the name of his killer
  or seen him grab at his St. Christopher medal in order to
  incriminate a suspect named Chris. Even though he was a
  devout mystery fan, Vacca had begun to doubt that such
  things ever happened. Until NOW! His captain was still
  skeptical. “Who says this is a deathbed clue? Looks like
  a bunch of gibberish.” The gibberish was 2 words typed
  on a computer screen. The police found Maria Consuela
  alone in her downtown office. The attractive legal
  secretary had stayed late to finish typing up a brief and
  had been rewarded with a blunt object to the head and
• There was no sign of forced entry and little signs of struggle,
  an indication that she had known her attacker. A pool of
  blood trailed away from the cubicle‟s doorway and ended in
  Maria‟s collapsed body, right under the edge of her desk. “It
  must have taken her last ounce of strength to crawl over here.
  She must have had some reason.” The Sergeant gazed at the
  computer screen. The last thing typed was a line of legal
  jargon transcribed from her boss‟s legal pad. The line ended
  in mid-sentence and was followed by 2 nonsensical words:
  “48dy 28oo8qjw.” “Forget the gibberish. Let‟s concentrate on
  her male co-workers. Office gossip says Maria was having an
  affair with 1 of them. We have Richard Williams, Gary
  Hallardi, and Paul Cattalgo. Check on „em.” “Wait a
  minute,” Vacca said. “I know who it was. Good old Maria
  did leave us a message.”
• When the victim had gone to the computer
  she had put her hands on the wrong row of
  keys. She had put her hands 1 row to high.
  When you move your hands 1 row up a48dy
  28oo8qjw equals……

                Which Dewdit Did IT?
• The lawyer looked from his client to the 3 greedy faces
  across the room. “You‟re sure you want to do this?” “Of
  Course,” Derwood Dewdit stated. :I have no children,
  It‟s only right that my niece and nephews inherit my
  estate. “That won‟t be for many, many years. Asa
  Dewdit said. His sister Bebe agreed as did brother Cecil.
  They watched, fascinated as Uncle Derwood signed his
  new will. Nothing happened until late afternoon. The
  lawyer was looking through the books in the 3-floor
  library when he heard Derwood‟s voice raised in a blood-
  curdling scream. For a few seconds, he sat in shock.
  Then he bounded down the stairs. He found Asa on the 2
  floor, standing at the top of the back staircase. “it came
  from the 1st floor,” stammered the young heir.
• The lawyer took the lead down the stairs. “Derwood!” he
  shouted and a moment later caught a spider web across
  his face. The kitchen was at the bottom. The white floor
  was spotless and still damp from a recent mopping. The
  pantry right next door was messy. Using a handkerchief,
  he tried the kitchen door. Unlocked. Looking out into the
  garden, he could see a path of footprints in the mud,
  leading up to the kitchen door and then away again. “Call
  the police.” The Dewdits and the lawyer all retired to the
  parlor to await the authorities. “An intruder must have
  come in the back way,” Cecil said. “I was sitting in the
  front hall by the main stairs. I didn‟t see anyone. “Me
  neither,” Bebe said absently fingering the mud on her
  shoes. “I was strolling around the garden, right by the
  kitchen. I didn‟t see a thing. Do you think it might be
  one of us? “Of course it was,” the lawyer said. “And I
  can guess which one.”
• Whodunit
• The lawyer knew that Asa had not used the
  backstair case because of the unbroken
  spiderweb. He could not have used the front
  stairwell without being seen by cecil who
  claimed to be in the front hall. Bebe couldn‟t
  have entered and left by the kitchen door, not
  without leaving prints on the mopped floor.
  Therefore, it had to be

         MI – CSI --- Looking for a Lookout
• On a January night, one of the coldest of the new year, a foot
  patrolman was making his rounds of the storefronts when a hissing cat
  ran past him into a nearby alley. Officer Greeley glanced after it, and
  the beam of a roaming flashlight caught his eye. It was coming from
  inside the alley window of Collin‟s Jewelry. Greeley called for
  backup and a patrol car quickly and a patrol car arrived. With their
  guns drawn, the 3 officers covered the front and back exists. The
  burglars were gone. “They must have had a lookout,” Greeley said. A
  walkie-talkie was found on the jewelry store floor, right where the
  burglars had dropped it. “Quickly,” said Greeley “I saw 3 guys
  loitering around. One of then has to be the lookout. If we hurry…”
  The 3 people were found. “ I was waiting for a bus,” said the man
  with the white cane and dark glasses. “I‟m blind. I work as an
  accountant next door to Collin‟s Jewelry. Tonight I stayed late
  working on taxes. I heard the usual street noises, but I obviously
  didn‟t see a thing.
The second person was a female. “My car broke down,” she
  said, shivering in the frigid night air. “I got out to see where
  exactly I was. Then I called a garage on my cell phone. You
  can check out my car. It still won‟t start. The 3rd person was
  a homeless alcoholic. He clutched a half-empty bottle of
  bourbon, the contents beginning to crystallize from the sub-
  freezing temperature. “I was just minding my own business,”
  he slurred. “trying to find someplace warm to sleep.” Which
  of the 3 people participated in the burglary.

     The homeless alcoholic was obviously faking his drunken
     state. Since alcohol doesn‟t freeze, his bourbon bottle must
     have been filled with colored water. Why would a sober
     person be out on such a cold night pretending to be drunk.
     He must have been the lookout.
          MI – CSI – The Coach‟s Last Play
Juliet Bricker watched as her husband dawdled over his Saturday
   morning breakfast. “What‟s wrong, dear?” Coach Bricker could
   never hide anything from Juliet. “It‟s one of my star players. I
   found out the boy‟s involved with gamblers. Maybe he‟s not trying
   to throw games, but it‟s still enough to get him suspended and ruin
   his chances with the pros.” Juliet was sympathetic. College football
   was his whole life, and for the first time in years, Halberton State had
   a great team. “What are you going to do?” “We‟re meeting at the
   field before practice. I have to hear his side of it.” Bricker kissed his
   wife, picked up his latest paperback novel, and headed for the door.
   Bricker was always reading – a holdover from being an English
   professor. The team coordinator showed up ½ an hour later and
   found the coach lying in the middle of the field, his head bashed in.
   “he didn‟t die instantly,” the police chief said as he examined the
   scene. A ten-foot-long blood trail showed the Bricker had been
Crawling toward the fieldhouse. “What‟s this in his hand?‟ The chief
  peered in the clenched fist and saw the last page of Coach Bricker‟s
  paperback. The rest of the book lay back at the scene of the attack.
  The 3 star players became the suspects. “I was in my dorm room all
  morning,” said quarterback Matt McGruffin. “Coach said I had to
  spend some time reviewing the playbook.” On hearing the news,
  Alfie Goodall, defensive lineback, broke down and could hardly
  blubber out his alibi. “Coach told me I had to lose some weight. I
  was out on the road this morning, running. Donny Emory, tight end,
  claimed to be sleeping. “me and my roommate had a late night.
  He‟s still fast asleep. I barely got here in time for practice. The
  chief thought over the case until it downed on him. “Holy cow!
  Before he died, Coach Bricker identified his killer. How clever.”
Whom does the chief suspect?
 The killer was identified on the piece of paper the coach held in his
 hands. The last words on the page were THE END!

                    The Clumsy Thief
• Charlene Tyner was half-awake when she heard it,
  coming from downstairs, the sound of spilling coins. She
  checked the time – 2 AM – then rolled over and wnet
  back to sleep In the morning, when Charlene walked into
  her kitchen, she noticed the theft. The jar where she kept
  her silver dollars was empty. That‟s when she
  remembered the late night sound. And that‟s when she
  saw the refrigerator. It was strange, the only thing out of
  center in the perfect kitchen. Charlene knelt down and
  reached into the space between the fridge and the cabinet.
  “At least they did not get them all,” she thought and she
  pulled out 2 of her prized coins. Myrna, her daughter, was
  the 1st one down. A would-be model,
• Myra had already worked in a few shows, Most of the
  time she was hanging out with her no-good boyfriend.
  Her room was at the top of the stairs and sometimes she
  slept with her door open. “Someone walked by in the
  dark I heard the coins spilling. I thought it was just an
  accident, she stated” Forest Tyner emerged from the
  downstairs bedroom. A gangling, gaunt man he had
  never been the dream husband but he was a good father.
  It was after their wedding that Charlene determined he
  spent ½ of his paycheck at the local tavern. I came in late
  and I did not want to disturb you so I slept on the couch
  and I woke up just a few minutes ago. Jess the son who
  is lazy and obese came down Jess loved food and video
  games. “I came down for a snack at midnight, I heard
  Myrna snoring, and Dad was not on the couch. I went
  back to bed. Charlene looked into the kitchen and her
  heart sank. She had figured out who had taken her coins.

           Shark Bait – THE BAD SAMARITAN
• Stan Rogers winced at the flesh wound in his left shoulder,
  feeling lucky to be alive. “My partner and I were delivering
  a payroll to the logging camp,” he told the officers at his
  hospital bedside. “It was late at night when the car broke
  down. I pulled over. Benny got out but I stayed inside.
  Those are the rules.” “A minute later, a passing motorist
  stopped to help. Benny and this guy checked the engine,
  fiddling with the connections. A couple times it almost
  started. I couldn‟t see their faces because they were
  standing right in front and the headlights were on low. But I
  saw when the guy pulled the gun from his jacket. “He shot
  Benny in the chest, just like that. Benny stumbled off to the
  side and collapsed. The guy came around to the driver‟s
Me, I kept trying to start the engine. He must have known
 about the payroll „cause he opened the rear door and
 grabbed it off the backseat. He slammed the door and was
 coming up to me when the engine started. I slipped it in
 gear as he got a shot off. “Gee if I had not run into you I
 might have fainted or died.” The highway patrol brought in
 2 lone motorist whose cars fit the description. Neither
 suspect had the payroll and the murder weapon was found
 back at the scene, wiped clean of prints. The 1st suspect was
 tall, with a blond crew cut and a small spider web tattoo on
 his right wrist. The 2nd suspect was short and left-handed.
 His hair was short, but dark. Stan examined photos of both
 clean shaven men, but could not make an ID. The senior
 officer led the way out of Stan‟s hospital room. “From what
 he told us about the attacker, I think it‟s clear who it was.”
    Crime Scene in a Box
• Remember to use your rubric
• The crime must be able to be solved.
• There must be evidence at the scene of the crime.
  The evidence should not be just sitting out ready
  to be collected. The evidence can be hidden in the
  scene. Guns can be in trashcans, knives can be in
  closets, baseball bats could be found under beds.
  windows can be broken with glass on the floor,
  blood spatter can be found on the furniture, floor,
  or going outside. Be creative but make sure that
  the crime and the scene are plausible and realistic.

• Phil Moretti hated it when tourists got murdered. It
  reflected badly on NYC, on Kennedy Airport, and him the
  Chief of Security. Somehow it did not seem as bad when
  the victim was local. In the case it was a businessman
  from Chicago. He had barely gotten off the plane. At
  3:42 PM, a passerby found him stabbed to death in the
  men‟s restroom just a few feet from the arrival gate. The
  body had been robbed. No jewelry. And although the
  wallet and credit cards had been left behind, there was no
  cash. 3 suspicious characters had been seen by the gates.
  About 15 minutes passed from finding the body before all
  3 were brought in. The 1st suspect was Abe Grishamn, a
  petty criminal with a long rap sheet. “I was just seeing
  my friend off, “ he said as he nervously twisted the silver
  and onyx ring on his finger.
“After her flight took off, I just hung around. I like
  airports.” The 2nd was Johnny Ambrose, who had 1
  prior arrest for grand theft auto. “I was here to pick up a
  friend, but his flight was canceled. I was just wasting
  time here till my next appointment.” Johnny checked
  his watch. “Is this gonna take much longer? I got a 4
  o‟clock meeting way up in Bronx, and I can‟t be late.”
  The last man interviewed was Doogie Weber, a
  suspected member of the Cordoba crime family. “One
  of the employees here owes me some money. I can
  never find the guy at home, so I tracked him down at
  work. That‟s why I got so much cash on me. I took the
  guy to the ATM and he gave me a payment on his debt.
  Security Chief Moretti listened to all 3 suspect, then
  pointed to 1 of the suspects. “This 1 we need to
  question further. The others can go.”
              Whom did Moretti suspect and why?
