What does "Hearsay" means and ...

Hi All,

I've been noticing about the proofs I get for the killers and I was wondering if anyone here knows what does "Hearsay" means? This is how it appears in my case file tab:

Seen Leaving Scene (Hearsay) Testimony: Yvonne Leatherman

and a second question:

Does anyone else noticed why does the suspect's avatar changes before and after they died?

Ohh I missed the Christmas Tree. The last one I had was 4 years ago and it was just a tiny tree.

Hi Joseph and Mercey! Just like to inform you that any proof counts - thus hearsay proof also - but since it's only one star evidence, you have to be sure to get more evidence until you reach the 3 star level (when you have only 1 star physical evidence like a handprint). There's no such thing like fake evidence to my account...

I've notice the avatar changing too, when suspects die!!! Maybe the Admin ran out of avatars-in-shining-light... meaning he has no time to create them (lol)...

Happy Holidays to you all out there!

Ohh Mrs. Jada, I was just wondering because he went to include the "Hearsay" into the proofs and "Hearsay" happens to mean rumors, so although now there's no such thing as fake witness evidence, maybe implicating that "Hearsay" Witness Evidence could be fake in the future updates which as for now, it serves as an upfront warning, so for me, whether there is such thing or no such thing, I'll still ask everyone for proofs to get the 3 stars I need. ^_^

I recently had a case where both of my fake alibi's got this "Hearsay" WE... but that just gave them both one star each. So in nutshell Hearsay can't be relied upon to accuse... Nice find Joseph...... but I wonder if anyone here can answer your second question about the changing avatar of the deceased...

Thanks Really Red.

As a disgraced doctor, I really like to analyze things and I usually think that not everything in this game is randomly generated and there must be a logical reason why things was designed in such way in the first place.

As for why I thought "Hearsay", maybe there was a logic reason for it, like:

1) Physical evidence - it can point to real alibi suspects of both the living and the dead. It can also point to fake alibi suspects of both the living and the dead.

2) Witness evidence - that it would be a logical reason for it to point in the same way like physical evidence.

So it would be obvious especially when there are more than 1 fake with matching PE, if I ask them about the other fakes with matching PE, I would assume or at least believe, even if they gave me a witness evidence on other fakes, there's a great possibility that its just a rumor, rumor that would make the detective think that he/she is not the killer and focus to get proof on the other ones.

As confusing as it may be for anyone to understand why Admin put in "Hearsay", I think Admin should try to clarify this. Please Admin, can I get a clarify on this? ^_^

hI Ms. Jada

Thanks for your advice. Guess we don't know much what we are doing as to question such possibilities. Hmm, Joseph maybe we leave it to the all knowing

ok to be nice, I know all that great advice you gave us as well as Joseph, he wouldn't be #1 if he didn't.

I think you might take heed at what we said and look into it. Take the blinders off if you will

Lol, you shouldn't say that Mercey, now even more will hate me for it and probably continue sending warning smails to my agency members to warn them about joining my agency.

lol...I really don't understand, if my agency is not doing TH and I'm not really active in SD, then what's there for "them" to be afraid of me and couldn't come upfront and complain/criticize me to my face, rather than doing the coward move of going towards my agents??

End of story, don't want to complain no more, ruin my mood for the next 3 days already....

Joseph, I don't know what kind of person would do that. Yes it does sound cowardice. I have had some difference of opinions with you but I also have respect for the resolve and dedication you play the game.

If some have issues with your play or how you may do things it is out of fear or ignorance they act that way.
