For information/questions/subpoenas, email...


Do landlords and ladies actually say that? (I wouldn't know either way, it just seems odd.)

EDIT: Of course this is the pagetopper. I'm quoting the contact page for the site Wacky found.

Just because no one mentioned it here, we've checked the modification date for the site - it's 10th Oct. While the page does seem absurd, the timeline check is positive, and what are the odds that somebody decides to mock that apartment complex right before we need to find it?

I'm planning on e-mailing the landlady. I'm going to be pretending to look for an apartment, but that I'd like an exact address so I can come out and have a look. I'll also say I'm an old friend of Mann's and that he recommended me to live there, and that I would like an apartment across from his, if at all possible.

How does that sound?

That sounds good, except if Mann does live there, she might check with him to make sure you're actually who you say you are. It might be worth it to hold off on mentioning him until you get the address of the Commons proper, just in case she gets suspicious when you bring him up.

I wish I had seen this before. I already sent it. Here's my message.

Me wrote:Hello. How are you?

I am looking for an apartment, and I was referred by a friend to Baskerville Commons Apartments. I've seen your website, and am very intrigued. I don't need much. Just a small place to lay my head at night.

Before I decide for sure, though, I would like to come and take a look at the place. The problem is, my friend who recommended me to your homes neglected to leave an address, and your website appears to lack one as well. I would appreciate it if you could e-mail me back with the street, city, and state address.

And if it all possible, I would like to request a very specific apartment. My friend, the one who told me about Baskerville Commons, Kenny Mann, is living there right now. I would very much like to have the apartment across or next to his. Is that even possible? Now that I think about it, I don't even know what apartment number he is in. I have been unable to contact him as of late, otherwise I would ask him if there were any vacancies next to his. Do you know Kenny Mann? Could you let me know what apartment he is living in and whether there are any vacancies nearby?

Thank you for your time, and I look forward to possibly coming to live there.


I know it's kind of suspicious, but it's the best I could do.

That was quick. She's replied.

Hope that helps!

Should I send it to Holmes, or are you going to?

Wait...If Mann now lives in Starsight... Then who the hell was calling from his phone?

Holmes is beginning to accept the idea that Tara may have been shot through an open window. He calls it impossible, and I agree. But maybe there's some way it could be possible? I don't know. Some new technology? Fictional technology?

My theory: Mann moved out to observe the investigation. In that case he could call her from his Baskerville apartment, and move to Starsight later. We need to ask when exactly he moved away, but I'm not sure how that could be done inconspicuously.

Or, in case he moved earlier, maybe we should find out who moved in his place.
I guess I'll share that with Holmes.

Hmmm... that is a good question.

Wacky, if you haven't replied to Ms. Doyle yet, you could say:

That's odd, he hadn't told me he'd moved. Do you know when he moved out?


Or something like that.

I'll get on that.

Edit: Sent. I also asked if someone moved into his old apartment? It still kind of sounds like I'm looking to move into his old place, but hopefully it'll give us the info we need.

Ok. Deanna Who has sent a hint to Quixote: "Curtain rod".
I guess they Failed A Spot Check.

Why would she do that? If she really is some random woman who wants to help, how would she know about the rod? If she is a villain, why would she help? Perhaps the case is supposed to lure them somewhere. Nothing else I can think of.
I'll be so freaked out if it's The Untwist.

I ... guess maybe she'd want to help to make Quixote feel endebted towards her, or something? Or... maybe she isn't a villain. Urgh, she has an ulterior motive, whoever she is.

Actually, look at the timing. She is telling them to look right before they go to the second apartment. It would be more likely that they are talking about the curtain rod in THAT apartment.

You mean that the curtain rod is a disguised weapon?
