Team John had the first answer to case #3 so
Moriarty: 25
John: 10

#4

Gregson went around, looking at the body of the woman, strangled, on the sofa. It was a hard case. No witnesses, few clues. He sighed, and looked at the coffee table. Two glasses filled with soda, half-eaten bowl of popcorn. Gregson picked up the glasses to study them. The ice cubes clinked against the side of the glass as Gragson raised them to his nose, smelling for cigarettes, or looking for lipstick-anything. But there were no clues. Gregson sighed and then turned to the boyfriend-Andy-who'd found her.

'So what happened?'

'We were just watching a movie-as you can see...And then she reminded me that I was supposed to run some errands ages ago, so I went out to do some. I told her I'd be back soon...and when I came back...' He gestered sadly to the body.

Gregson nodded. 'About how long were you gone?'

Andy shrugged. 'Maybe two hours? ...She...had a jealous ex...maybe he--'

Gregson held up a hand to stop him. 'Maybe he would have a better story than you.'


Why would Gregson say that?

#5

Sherlock Holmes looked around the professor's study while Watson peered into the open vault. Then Holmes turned to the four students, Mark, James, Pete, and Greg.

'You four were in here for tutoring. Besides you, no one has been in here but the professor. We know it was on of you. When he stepped out for a while towards the end of your tutorial, one of you had to have broken in. Since you all deny it, I will have to ask you all to separate and write out your stories.'

After Holmes had gotten their stories, he read through them. All denied stealing anything, and had no other information. Except for James's. At the bottom of his paper it read, 'I know who it was. ?'

'What is that supposed to mean, Holmes?' Watson asked.

Holmes looked up. 'Bring_____ back in here!'


Who did Holmes ask for (and why)?

#4 The ice wasn't melted in the glass, so Andy couldn't have been gone for hours. Team Sherlock.

It actually took me a little time to figure it out, but I think I got it!

Sherlock is calling back Mark.

Reason being is the strange and peculiar "Question MARK" he added at the end of his sentence.

Thanks! c:

I absolutely love mysteries and the process of deduction! It's quite fascinating. On most occasions I'm usually wrong but there are times when I look it over and the answer hits me.

Um...not really. A few of them came from online. One or two of them are mixes of some stuff I've read.

I'm out of stuff I've read at the moment, so most of the next ones will be from online.
