in our meeting we decided to combine some of our ideas. Samia watched the movie of sherlock to better understand the concept of deduction. so she came with ideas for clues in a crime scene. sara(god bless her) came up with an entire story for a murder scene investigation. me and amal had went to an adventure rooms thing on saturday so amal came up with the idea to make a puzzle where the space is littered with small clues that builds a bigger thing(which would be the answer)
this is sara’s original story:
Professor Gunders Is a professor in psychology , she’s 43 years old. She maintains decent health , although it as been reported that she has been suffering from mild vertigo in the last couple of months. She went through a rough divorce 4 years ago, reasons of the divorce remain unknown. Her children have not returned her calls in a long time. Gossip in her workplace suggest that it could be infidelity on her part. In university she is known to be a strict grader and professor. Some alumni from the college she works at still hold a strong grudge against her. She was found dead in her bathtub , with her wrist cut as she blood to death.
– There are signs of chloroform around her lips.
– Her phone suggested that she was expecting a date at the same evening that she died.
– The autopsy suggests her vertigo was induced by pharmaceutical drugs, possibly blood pressure pills (despite that her blood pressure was normal prior to her death).
Murder ending :
if professor died class gets an A
the victim left handed = but the cut is also in her left hand
the cut in the right hand to think it’s a suicide but the direction of the knife it’s different .
but it makes the killer is left handed looking at the bathroom platform . the killer will rest her body in his left arm .
3 students lost their scholarship . all of the three emailed the professor begging her to fix their grades .
During the time of murder .
one is left handed and was doing an exam . ( exam was cancelled )
one is injured , working on the project
one was sick in the hospital
so then we started combining the idea and settled with creating the desk of the victim in sara’s story. where we would create a series of clues that lead to the killer.
we needed to rewrite the story to be good enough since we are trying to measure up to Arthur Conan Doyle. so we did a bit of research into detective riddles and actual real life murders. i suggested for them to watch a channel on youtube called “Rob Dyke” who is a guy who has a horror series called “serial killer files” where he talks about actual murderers (caught or not) without showing any gruesome images. but then sara got dizzy just thinking about it…
we went through these riddles below together to try to figure it out (we couldn’t) just to give us an idea on where to start…
