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?

Sorry Really Red - but you can never 'safely accuse' on that kind of premise. You've just been lucky so far to accuse the correct suspect! Take care because one day you won't be so lucky .....

Ahhhh, so what do you do when you have RH case like I did today and only evidence was 1 foot and 1 Threatening Note. Hmmm, weapon was not it. What did I do?????

Ohh, at first I thought when at least 6 of the suspects leaning towards a single manipulation in a case, the killer will always have 3 stars worth of PE links to him/her, but no, it was proven wrong yesterday in one of my case, so there's really no pattern now. Just be careful and if I need to get the remaining stars by using charm or int rings, I'll buy them no matter what.

hmm...40 challenge points left, so soon enough, my agency will have to start doing Treasure Hunts again, so please be easy on us huh? We're just a newbie agency. ^_^

LOL Mercey, I like when others post there solving the case ideas, but fail to mention case levels. There is a big difference between an IH case and RH case. Even between an SH and AI. What you think may to be ok to "safely accuse" in some case levels, will not be the case in others. The only "safely accuse" method is to have at least 3 stars against a fake alibi.To post and say otherwise is a disservice to other players giving them a FALSE premise. That will lead to getting FAs.


Now Joseph, your agency maybe newly formed. You and couple others in it are seasoned players & treasure hunters. So you know how to properly conduct and defend a treasure hunt. :>)

Well first of all I have never been lucky, so I have always done what I am supposed to do(i.e to get 3stars).

Second point, I only said about the cases which are having more than 2-3 WEs(i.e a case matching the situation I mentioned and not the cases with just one PE).

Third point, LOL I forgot to mention that I have only played till SH level (i.e no IH or RH as yet), so really inexperienced when compared to most of you...

Fourth point, I don't consider my statement misleading to others(for increasing number of FAs)as I have never asked/suggested anybody to just go and accuse directly(if such a situation occurs), even I have never directly accused any suspect yet(in such a situation). As I said already I am just observing and noticing it. So any newbie or other sleuth who reads carefully and has proper grammatical knowledge will never get any FA because of my post.

Finally I would say to all(without naming anybody as no arguments are intended from my side) that as I said earlier it's just an OBSERVATION and not a VERDICT, it may be right - it may be wrong, but this is what I have noticed till now... so I think our honorable seniors(senior sleuths) should take this positively or cross-check it(FOR THAT WAS MY MAIN PURPOSE OF POSTING IT HERE) to confirm if it is correct or incorrect(as even I am not sure about it and mentioned it earlier), rather than just commenting or making fun off... Happy Sleuthing

Do not believe there was any poking fun at or otherwise and I am really sorry you took it that way. Just remember one thing, just because you think something is does not make it so. The simple point being made and confired, is that shortcuts are not safe or recommended anymore.

If, by chance, you feel you have figured out a pattern or a shortcut that is great. And if you want to confirm it with a senior player, smail them your thoughts and see what they say. Your post clearly stated that it would be safe to accuse Y without the 3rd star. To newbies you would be considered a seasoned player and they make take that as fact.

Again, really sorry if you misunderstood intentions here.

Hi Mercy I totally agree to what you have said but I just wanted to make clear there that I "just noticed" it... Actually found some words in somebody's post(which meant that I am misleading newbies and others) due to which I had to clear my point again.....
anyways thanks for your reply and happy sleuthing...
