In trouble.

I was too tired to make a clever comment while writing this.

Thankfully I can trust on you guys to always add clever comments..!

What's that wierd notepad thing that Guy is holding?

Also: +1 if you don't make a clever comment.

POOP

I mean uh

In US Criminal law, means, motive, and opportunity is a popular cultural summation of the three aspects of a crime that must be established before guilt can be determined in a criminal proceeding. Respectively, they refer to: the ability of the defendant to commit the crime (means), the reason the defendant felt the need to commit the crime (motive), and whether or not the defendant had the chance to commit the crime (opportunity). Opportunity is most often disproved by use of an alibi, which can prove the accused was not able to commit the crime as he or she did not have the correct set of circumstances to commit the crime as it occurred. Motive is not an element of many crimes, but proving motive can often make it easier to convince a jury of the elements that must be proved for a conviction.

Establishing the presence of these three elements is not, in and of itself, sufficient to convict beyond a reasonable doubt; the evidence must prove that an opportunity presented was indeed taken by the accused and for the crime with which he or she is charged.

@Goblin Scribe

Interesting, any particular reason you decided to bring that up? ^^;

I'm liking this detective fellow more and more. He initially gave me the feeling of a smooth/silly-but-incompetent detective, but the second half is starting to change.

Twist: That elf was his brother!

Hmm... Is Doyle's name in reference to Arthur Conan Doyle, author of Sherlock Holmes? Or just a happy coincidence?

@Delta

Happy coincidence, but it does explain why I had this feeling like Doyle "just made sense" for an officer.

I, for one, think it's criminal that Guy's last line in this comic wasn't: "But there's just one more thing..."

He should arrest himself. :p

@Delta Pangaea
Thank you! I remembered the name Arthur Conan Doyle, but I could not remember who he was.

Is Guy's staying to talk to Noah alone a good thing or a bad thing?

6038: whitemanPT - Friday, February 6 2015 - 4:33 AM

Im assuming that Guy knows who killed that elf the way hes acting. What he dosent know is how Noah got in the sewer.

Arthur Conan Doyle wrote Sherlock Holmes.
