Case #5:
Case of The
Surprised Visitor
8th Grade Forensic Science
Source: http://kids.mysterynet.com/quicksolve/
The clock in the courthouse ahead of Max showed six o'clock. As it
began chiming, he noticed a tall man with a briefcase walking towards
him. The man turned around, looked at the clock, and then quickened
his steps. He took an envelope and dropped it in a mailbox as he
continued on. Max moved faster, too. Miss Fritz had invited him for
dinner. He didn't want to be late.
"I'm glad you could come," Harborville's oldest music teacher said. "I've
made a lovely salad for us." She gestured Max to a chair. "Good thing I
prepared ahead. A surprise visitor just left."
"Who visited?" Max asked.
"A teacher from Harborville's School for the Deaf,” she replied. “He
was totally deaf himself; poor man, but he could read lips perfectly. He
had the loveliest penmanship when he wanted to tell me something."
"Why was he here?" he asked.
She said, "Well, evidently the school is low on funds. I was glad to help
out. I had just cashed my social security check so I was able to give him
five hundred dollars."
"Did he just leave?” he asked. “Was he a tall man with a brief case?"
"Yes," she replied.
"We'd better phone the police. I think that man was a phony. I know for
sure he wasn't totally deaf."
How did Max figure it out?
The clock was behind the man as he was walking, so he could not
have seen it. He turned around at the sound of the chimes, so he
obviously heard them.
