Although Rory has solved the mystery for us all, I made my own investigations and wrote this post a few weeks ago. I am publishing this post, because…… I put a lot of effort into it and it may amuse you all!
Who Is The Victim?
Where Were They Found?
In their respective bedrooms.
Who Is Guilty?
I think it was Miss Marbles andwho killed Snodgrass. Miss Fisher was murdered by Captain Haslet. He was being blackmailed by her. Both the murders were committed for different reasons.
How Did They Do It?
Miss Marbles made Snodgrass’s cocktails very strong and added a few drops of sleeping draught in there as well. When every one has gone to bed, she snuck in and bashed his head with the fire poker. She and Matron carried the body to captain’s room and left it there. Captain Haslet after giving an overdose of sedative to Miss Fisher, took her gun and shot the already dead Snodgrass to throw suspicion on her.
What Was Their Motive?
Miss Marbles carried a grudge against Snodgrass for his stingy ways and the fact that he had banned cocktails. He was always putting her down and didn’t give her enough credit for her detective skills. While Matron was just angry because she had to sell her home to Snodgrass and then work for him.
Miss Fisher was killed because she knew a dark secret in Captain Haslet’s past. He gave her an overdose of sedative and made it look like suicide and hid the rest of the confession letter.
What Was Their Murder Weapon?
Snodgrass was killed by the poker and then shot by Miss Fisher’s gun to confuse the police. Miss Fisher was given an overdose of the sedative.
Here’s my jumbled up story. I hope no innocent party was unjustly accused in the writing of this story.
