Gonna try my own chart. Never enough charts!
Things you find in/take to the Woods:
Axe (yugi), Machete (James), Bites & Tears (Versaille), Fishing Hook (Madame P), Ice Skates (yugi), Apple (Verasaille), Trowel (BAMF), Hat (Kythia), Umbrella (Remiel),
Venomous Snake (Strangefate)
Dirty Water (Strangefate)
, Raincoat (Strangefate), Rose (Assassini), Machinery? (Remiel)
Things that could cause fatal Blood Loss:
Axe (yugi), Machete (James), Bites & Tears (Versaille), Fishing Hook? (Madame P), Ice Skates (yugi), Dismemberment (Strangefate), Blood Release (Yugi), Machinery? (Remiel), Cleaver (Persephone), Drill (Assassini)
Things that leave/absorb Water Stains:
Ice Skates (yugi),
Dirty Water (Strangefate)
, Raincoat (Strangefate), Plastic Bottle (Strangefate), Umbrella (Remiel),
, Fish Hook (Madame P), Tissue (James), Soap (Remiel)
Things that Smell:
Soap (Remiel), Rose (Assassini), Cigar (Kythia),
Sulfuric Acid (Verasaille)
Cigarette Ash (James)
, Sock (James), Food Ingredients? (yugi), Apple? (Verasaille), Cake (Madame P),
Cigarette Butt (Verasaille)
I then went through and crossed off things that donít make sense. Dirty Water may fit Water Stains and the Woods but canít cause Blood Loss and Blood Loss is the reason for death so has to fit the means of murder. Remiel, yugi, James, and Madame are the only ones to have items that fit all four clues (if my list is in any way accurate). The only way James, however, can fit all four clues is if he had both the tissue for water stain and one of his other items for smell, since Machete shouldn't leave either.
I also thought it might be useful to see the options the Forensic Scientist didnít give us. IE, things that were on the same cards but he chose to ignore in favor of what he selected.
State of the Scene Options: Bits and Pieces, Ashes, Water Stain
, Cracked, Disorderly, Tidy
State of the Scene Options: Sudden Sound, Prolonged Sound, Smell
, Visual, Action, Nothing
Location Options: Vacation House, Park, Supermarket, School, Woods
Murder Options: Suffocation, Severe Injury, Loss of Blood
, Illness/Disease, Poisoning, Accident
I think the fact the FS could have selected both Ashes and Smell but chose not to more or less rules out Cigarette Butt or Cigarette Ash as clues so I crossed them off as well. That would have pointed the finger right at James or Verasaille and really narrowed things down, so to choose not to probably means that neither is the killer. I also think this makes Remiel even less likely because Accident/Woods or Severe Injury/Woods would have pushed us more towards the Machinery as a murder option than blood loss. Yet I can't dismiss him entirely because Soap fits both Water Stains and Smell so well. Also note that given those Locations there really isn't any better clue to have given us to point towards Machinery. You don't think Woods when you think Machinery normally, but you don't think Bank or Supermarket either!
Which leaves Madame P (with fishing hook and cake), yugi (with the ice skates and food), and Remiel (with Machinery and soap) as my prime suspects for now. Basically in that order.
