- A guest here at the Auberge, Mona Lisa Vesuvio, was murdered last night! She was found dead by her husband at 10:30 PM in room 4. The body is still there. She was last seen in public at 9 PM when she left the restaurant.
- You must discover a suspect who has both a motive (e.g., money, jealousy) and the means and opportunity to kill the victim. For opportunity, locate the murder weapon and discover who had access to it at the time of the murder.
- Only one suspect has a motive and opportunity (both to get the weapon and to kill). The murder has not been accomplished by an alliance between two or more people.
- Most people will be truthful, although, of course, the murderer may try to hide his or her own involvement.
- Please work with your partner as a team: share information and deductions, and try to reach a shared opinion as to who did it.
