Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to the guard and agree to help. (Chat 1)
  • Go northwest and investigate the sacks in the shed, take 7 flypapers.
  • Go inside and take the pungent pot and criminal's dagger.
  • Investigate the nearby smashed window for the criminal's thread.
  • Note: The colour of the thread corresponds to the colour of the killer's legwear. In the next step, you only need to search for the silver items of people whose legwear colour matches with the thread.
    • If the thread is Red, the culprit is either Bob or Carol
    • If the thread is Green, the culprit is either Anna or David
    • If the thread is Blue, the culprit is either Elizabeth or Frank
  • Search the barrels around in the house to get 6 silver items (or just search the barrels of those with matching legwear). There are 4 barrels upstairs and 2 barrels downstairs. The barrels can be found in the small bedrooms that appear as red on the minimap.
  • Go to the kitchen and fill your pot with flour from the barrel.
  • Use flour and flypaper to dust each silver item and the dagger.
  • Use the silver items' prints on the dagger's print until you get a match. Remember who it is.
