    Whitcombe was found dead in his office desk .Sherlock narrowed the suspects down to 3 people Mrs. Barbara Whitcombe, Ray's wife, Mr. Jason McCubbins, Ray's Business partner, Mr. Harold Nichols, Ray's best friend. Sherlock found a torn picture of his wife laying on the floor beside the trash can, and a ink pen in his hand. On the desk, the police found a name plate, a telephone that was off the hook, personal calender turned to July with 7891011 written on it. after examining this evidence, Sherlock knew the suspect. How?? Now remember : A SHARP TONGUE DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE A KEEN MIND. Prove that you are the detective SERIOUSLY the best => UNLOCK THE SOLuTion & Whats the Mystery....

    So he was on the phone at the time of death, and a number was written on the calendar. This number I think we can heuristically reason belongs to the business man. @micahwood50 Crime-solving skills are inductive. We need to find some boundaries for what's acceptable behavior. This could all be a set up.

    You cannot use pure logic to solve a crime. That would be deductive. You would have to rule out the possibility that someone came in and changed the evidence.

    The answer: http://www.braingle.com/brainteasers/teaser.php?op=2&id=39718&comm=0 First, @Rohangrr didn't even post all the evidence. Second, the line of reasoning doesn't deduce that the calendar necessarily had the killer's name written on it. Third, red herrings are used in the pile of evidence. Fourth, this is inductive reasoning. Heuristic reasoning, not logical. Fifth, if we are to accept that this isn't real life, and that people behave like they do in cartoons, then we can postulate anything since the question, being inductive, assumes that there are realistic limits to behavior.
