    ROLES:
    Prosicution: Mathdude
    Defense: Jodi
    Judge: Vanderwaal

    Police Report (totally official :P)

    Twas a dark morning in Owen MacWilliam's manor (Yes, its a manor, don't ask).
    The police were called at 6:04 AM in the MacWillaim's manor becuase of murder!
    Poor Owen MacWilliam was murdered at 6:01 AM by his butler, Mr. Donavon, from a kitchen knife from the manor's kitchen. No fingerprints were found on the knife, but the security footage of the bedroom shows Mr. Donavon entering the bedroom holding the knife at 6:00 AM. My Donavon was the only person in the house aside from the victim.

    DETAILS:
    Time of death: 6:01 AM
    Time of phone call: 6:04 AM
    Location: Bedroom
    Cause of death: Stabbing in the abdoman area
    Suspect: Mr Donavon
    Motive: Unpaid Labor
    Victim: Owen MacWilliam
    First responder: Officer Muligan
    Investigator: Detective Phillip


    Evidence
    Knife: it seems like this was used to kill Owen MacWilliam. There are no fingerprints on it. It\\'s not certain if this is the same knife as Mr Donovan carried when he entered the room.
    Map of the house: (yellow boxes are doorways, entrance to building is at bottom)

    Security footage: in a security footage from 6:00 AM it\\'s possible to see Mr Donavon enter the bedroom. He carries a knife and doesn\\'t wear gloves.
    Autopsy report: Owen MacWilliam died around 6:01 AM because he got stabbed in the abdoman area.
    911 call: Mr Donovan called 911 around 6:04 AM and reported Owen MacWilliam was murdered.

    Operator: Please state the nature of the emergency.
    Mr Donovan: *shaky*h-h-he-he\\'s d-d-d-dead...
    Operator: Who\\'s dead? What happened?
    Mr Donovan: *gasping*Owen. He\\'s dead...
    Operator: Owen who? How did he die?
    Mr Donovan: *sobbing* Owen MacWilliam, My boss! He was murdered! Stabbed! *intense sobbing*
    Operator: We\\'ll be right there. Your address please?
    Mr Donovan: 427 George Lane *more sobbing*

    Rag: Mr Donovan had a rag in his pants. It could have been used to wipe the fingerprints off the knife.

    People
    Vanderwaal, the judge. He doesn\\'t have a lot of experience yet, but he did already succeed in getting a good reputation as a judge.
    Surprise, the prosecution.
    Unihedron, Limit: the defence.
    Owen MacWilliam, the victim. After earning quite a bit of money he decided to buy a manor. However, lately he got into financial problems (I think).
    Mr Donavon, the defendant. He has been serving MacWilliam for a few years now (I think).
    Officer Muligan, the first responder. He got promoted to officer a few months ago. This is his first murder case (I think).
    Detective Phillip, the detective. With years of experience he managed to be able to determine whether someone was murdered of not just by looking at the corpse. The stab wounds do help though.


    Court is now in Session!

    Attention everyone! The court case of Owen MacWilliam has now begun. You know, the case with the manor with only one floor, the XXL vault and the police report filled with spelling and grammar errors. Are the defence and the prosecution ready?

    Well, it appears like the defence is ready while the prosecution hasn't made it into the court just yet. Too bad. It seems like this is an open and shut case and I wanted it to be finished quickly. Anyway, we'll begin without him. Time is money!

    Now, to get down to the case itself. It appears like the knife, the map of the house, the security footage and the autopsy report are all important pieces of evidence.

    Evidence
    Knife: it appears like this was used to kill Owen MacWilliam. There are no fingerprints on it.
    Map of the house: see the spoiler in the first thread.
    Security footage: in a security footage from 6:00 AM it\'s possible to see Mr Donavon enter the bedroom. He carries a knife.
    Autopsy report: Owen MacWilliam died at 6:01 AM because he got stabbed in the abdoman area.

    Well, detective, I'd like you to confirm a few things for me
    First of all, on the security footage you could see Mr Donovan holding a knife. Can you tell me if this is the same knife that was used to kill Owen MacWilliam.
    Second, did Mr Donovan wear gloves while he entered the bedroom?
    Third, are there any security footages of the bedroom?
    Fourth, who made the phone call at 6:04 AM?
    And fifth, were there any other people near the crime scene at 6:01 AM?

    WITNESS TESTAMONY

    The Scene of the Crime - Detective Phillip

    "Yes, its true that Mr Donovan was holding a knife when he entered the room,
    but we actually don't know if it was the knife used to kill him...
    the knife Mr Donovan was holding and then knife that killed Owen Macwilliam are both standard kitchen knives from the manors kitchen,
    but all the manors kitchen knives look the same,
    so we cannot tell from the security footage if the knife is the same or not.
    When Mr Donovan entered the room, he was not wearing gloves of any kind.
    The security camera is angled at the door, so we can only see who enters and exits the hall door,
    it IS the only entrance to the room, aside from the vault room after all.
    The phone call was made by the defendant, Mr Donovan himself.
    As i mentioned before, no one was at or near the scene of the crime at 6:01"-----------------

    Mathdude, that's my job. If you want me to come to that verdict faster you need to proof without doubt Mr Donovan is guilty.

    Now, to get back to the case itself, Philiph, I have three new questions for you.
    First of all, are there no windows in the bedroom?
    Second of all, how can you be so sure there was nobody at the crime scene at 6:01 AM?
    Third, what did Mr Donovan report when he called the police? Did he maybe confess killing Mr MacWilliam?

    I think I have a new theory. Owen Macwilliam was a vampire. This is backed up by the fact his house has only one window. He wants to keep the sunlight out.
    Since he's a vampire he probably knows some magic. He was probably trying to make knives float with his mind. However, he accidentally stabbed himself while practicing that magic. Therefore he died because of his own mistake.

    Also, the police isn't allowed to make any objections. That's the job of the defence and prosecution. If you continue disrupting the court with your objections I'll be obligated to put you into contempt of court (= sent out of the court room for being disrespectful).
