Witness Evidence

Tessa F

How dependable is witness evidence? For instance, are witnesses able to provide evidence that may not lead you to the actual killer?

So basically, if I'm lucky enough to find someone to give witness evidence right away in my IH case (which I actually just experienced), does it mean I have found the killer?

no, it will only give you two question provided you used the correct manipulation AND you have level 2 Necromancy.

That's what I've been trying to tell Sleuth Admin about this skill, as it doesn't work on its own, instead need to be used together with manipulation.

@Detective Lu Peste:
When you do harder cases, if you get 1 or 2 stars based on WE, you can try to accuse, I bet you will get an FA, especially in tricky cases whereby knowing that you might have not yet locate the 7th suspect and couldn't match any of the PE against fake alibi suspects.

I always have such cases, that's why I always keep at least 4 manipulation until I locate all the suspect (including searching all the houses for yellow notes). And if I don't found any, lol...its either I have a missing PE in crime scene, or i have yet to locate the 8th suspect.

Well, if it's like that, I would suggest not to use your 2 necromancy on 2 spirits, but rather pick one spirit and ask him about suspects 1 and 2. Because if he wouldn't know anything about the killer, he would not have died. And if he does not have witness evidence against these 2 guys, accuse your suspect 3.

@kivaas:

lol...you got it all wrong. Since there's 3 fake alibi suspects with PE matched to them and there's 2 dead suspects, how could:

you ask dead 1 about suspect 1 and 2 (not knowing about 3), while you didn't ask dead 2 about 1, 2 and 3, and accuse blindly on 3?

you'll end up with FA. :P

no, you won't, I think. I would go for it...

because dead 1 being actually dead means he was a risk for the killer, which means he MUST hold WE against him. Otherwise he would still be alive. And if he does not have WE against 1 and 2, the killer must be number 3.

Joseph, I didn't realise until now that you have adressed to me on this thread. You probably did so because I wrote `if you have ENOUGH evidence to accuse it doesn't matter if it's WE or PE`.

I really can't see how did you get from my words that I suggested to accuse on the bases of 1 or 2 stars of evidence. ENOUGH means 3 stars, but you must agree that they may be either WE, either PE, either PE + WE. That's all I said. Thank you for sharing from your experience, anyway.

@kivaas:
Well, wait till you learn Necromancy and start asking the dead about WE on the killer and if you don't get the WE 100\% of the time, then its not a full-proof solution to think that the dead always have WE against the killer. Remember, the killer can think that the dead suspect maybe have a WE against him/her, hence, he/she (the killer) to a step advance to kill this suspect. Make sense to you? ^_^

@Lu Peste:
You got my meaning wrong again. I was saying that if you do get 3 stars (WE) against someone, does that mean he/she is the killer? That part, I'm not sure, coz all these while, more than 3 stars can be achieve with PE + WE, if all based on WE, I can never get 3 stars (especially if this person doesn't end up to be the killer). That's how the system works.

Joseph, I really don't understand what you want to prove here. It seems pretty clear to me, and that's what I wrote: `if you have a FALSE ALIBI and ENOUGH EVIDENCE (we both agree this means 3 stars) it doesn't matter...` .

Now you're trying to say to me that if I have 3 stars from WE they won't do? Or you're saying that I suggested to accuse a person with a valid alibi? I don't get it.


I know nothing about AI cases and you are probably right about almost everything, but I think you worry too much... if he/she is not the killer, you will probably never get 3 stars and false alibi against that person.

And when did I ever got your meaning wrong, if you would be so kind to enlighten me, because I can not remember any situation as such?

Maybe its just my misunderstanding. Sorry Le Peste.
