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....

It was Jason. 7891011 -> 7·8·9·10·11 7- July 8- August 9- September 10- October 11- November First letters of the months spell JASON.

I haven't said that you're wrong @micahwood50 @badreferences Just imagine

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.

what day was it when he was killed? was it in july...

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.

Maybe the wife set it all up.. she didnt like her husband so she hired someone to kill him :P

According to Google, the calendar was the clue to solving this murder.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it was a time near 1790s @Libniz when @Arthur Conan was alive
anonymous

"Yes, ahem, someone is going to kill me. Instead of writing 'Jason', let's write, instead, his name in cipher with two steps of disassociation!" - no murder victim ever

I'm curious as to what the step-wise solution is. I doubt if one exists. Even if there was one, Sherlock didn't use it.

If you look up the riddle, you will notice that calendar is the only clue you have to solve the murder case.

okay

a calendar with a bunch of numbers on it is not enough proof.

I want to know how the statement "a sharp tongue does not mean you have a keen mind" implies anything at all, or is all this just useless info? that would kinda suck...
anonymous

The question asker should have his arm cut off.
anonymous
  • anonymous
"A sharp tongue does not mean you have a keen mind," was meant to ward off people who said the question was stupid.

I'm willing to bet one thousand dollars you can't solve it.

Any other than using clue from calendar.

why would the torn picture be beside the trash can? that makes no sense. it would be IN the trash can. and a businessman isn't lazy, he would have thrown it away.
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
this whole scenario makes no sense unless it was a set up

do we know how he died, or no?

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.

whoa whoa whoa. knew the suspect? we all assumed that meant he knew the killer. but sherlock listed three suspects. i bet he knew one of them.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sherlock Holmes' novel sold over 4 million for the same reason Harry Potter did. Don't go out and expect to fly on a broomstick. They both handwave explanations, and use selective bias to create tension.
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
he probably knew the business partner.
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
my money's on that
anonymous
  • anonymous
The business partner probably already confessed to the crime, and Sherlock pretended to catch him.
anonymous
  • anonymous
"I caught the criminal!" yelled Sherlock Holmes. Detective Lestadt looked over at Dr. John Watson. "Should we tell him?" They had caught the criminal weeks ago. "No," said Watson gravely. "Denying a mentally ill patient can only bring trouble."
AriPotta
  • AriPotta
it didn't say sherlock knew who the killer was, it just said that he knew the suspect. case solved. he knew one of the suspects. the business partner.
