    The Cafe is actually located WEST of the Outdoor Theatre. Here is a link proving that Anyway, Thank you guys for all the helpful tips!

    How on Earth are you supposed to figure out that it’s Ficarron just from the clues? if anything, the clues point towards everyone but Ficarron being guilty. And where is the clue that tells you that he is her brother? because that would have made all the difference, instead of having to go by process of elimination

    1. L

      When I did the mission, I thought that only Ficarron or Pascal could be guilty (but only after I found out my initial suspect, Laurent, was dead too). The thing that lead me to choose Ficarron over Pascal was the missing costume was burning in the campfire behind Ficarron’s wagon.

    2. B

      It had to be a man, because the cafe owner saw a man in black robes running away. Also there was the note telling the girl that “both her problems” will be solved tonight. So she was’t the killer.

      Now why Ficarron and not Pascal? First of all the clothes next to his trailer. Then he was lying about the troubles in the troupe saying everyone got along well which clearly wasn’t true. Pascal also freely admitted to not liking Barto which he might not have done if he was the killer.

      YES! It never said they were related until you accused him.

  3. M

    If anything, I’d accuse Rose for sending out someone to murder her husband, because of the note written to her.

    Or is that too deep thinking? Is the person who wields the blade always the guilty one?

  4. L

    This was a weird mystery. Ficarron seemed very self-confident. Lieing about troubles or intentionally filtering them out isn’t unusual for that kind of person. Pascal on the other hand is the only one who speaks IN PAST TENSE about Barto’s affairs with the actresses, while Ficarron and Rose show no knowledge about any of the murders.
