glitch?

i've taken a hard case in which I found the murder weapon, so damning evidence; the person in question had an alibi, so I lost the case, even though I had three stars on her. Is this a glitch? Or was the murder weapon planted there (I didn't think this would be possible, so...)

Thanks for clarifying this..

3 STARS + FAKE ALIBI = KILLER

and it's corollary

ANY NUMBER OF STARS + VALID ALIBI = INNOCENT SUSPECT

This burned me too, when I was new. I once had 6 stars against someone with a valid alibi. The alibi is decisive. Someone with a valid one cannot be guilty.

Yeah...No matter what evidences you have against a suspect, if he has an alibi, he's innocent..So, while interviewing suspects, first ask their alibis so that you can cross out a few suspects. Good luck!

no matter what it's always: any number of stars + fake alibi = killer

I definitely think Admin should make the rules fixed at "3 stars + Fake Alibi + Motive = Killer". ^_^

That will change the outcome of why a majority of you said the cases are too easy. :P

From what I've gathered through playing this for this long,

Any Amount of Stars+Valid=Innocent
1 or more Stars+Fake=Guilty

This may change during nearly impossible cases, but does not change before that point from my experience.

i have ever had a suspect with 2 stars and a fake alibi turn out to be innocent, you need 3 or more stars to be sure. (i have only recently reached very hard cases.)

Making rules fixed at "3 stars + Fake Aliby = Motive = Killer" would certianly toughen the game however, there are other factors to consider here.

First, it is obvious that Admin has made cases tougher ie., multiple evidence found in crime scene (yes there is a way around this) and shorter game time.

But more importantly, sometimes people take the proof or motive to their grave. Yes, both of these can also be dealt with but for detectives just moving up, this would be a difficult task until they had the necessary skills to do so. We all know how long that can take so how many cases would they have to quit because of this rule?

I am a firm believer on the three star rule but sometimes you have to make a choice when no one will tell you or if time is of the essence.

Just my 2 cents and just another challenge for Admin.
