    The forumite known by the entire board as Roscoe36 was found in a gruesome Microwave murder. Police have little clues as to who had a motive to attack the esteemed administrator since anyone with probable cause was already banned from the site.

    "Probably just a bunch of kids playing detective," said the sheriff of Windsor, "they're a bunch of animals anyhow."

    On a scrap of paper was a note attributed to being Roscoe36's last words: "Damn, not again".

    On the flip side, the letter L was written.

    "Its a tough way to go. I thought he had gotten rid of 'The Microwave'"
    Apparently not soon enough.

    lmao! :pound:PF.com heaven merely requires a High Basketball IQ and the ability to defend oneself against the forum's most ferocious posters in a respectable manner. So, how did we make it here again? ;)

    Motown and I bring the paint presence. He's James "Buddha Train" Edwards and I am Rick "McNasty" Mahorn.

    Some preliminary legwork:

    Slippy announced the last hanging on 9/13 at 10:59 am. He announced the nuking of our beloved leader this morning, 9/15, at 10:42 am. So I am assuming that the murderer acted in a post sometime bewteen those two posts. (If that's already a faulty assumption, somebody please let me know).

    I ran a search of everyone on the subject list, just to eliminate those who did not post at all during that time frame. That eliminated, if I executed my search correctly: majestik, Aurorakmw, and warthog.

    It leaves: me, Tayshaunofthedead, Jammertime, Bezeach, Webz, Lurker, Hack, The Low, Dumars4Ever, and Darth Tater.

    Now, I know I didn't do it, but for the sake of an orderly investigation: here are the number of posts by each of those people during that time frame, from most to least:

    Darth Tater: 17
    Professor: 11
    Webz: 8
    Hack: 7
    Bezeach: 4
    Jammertime: 4
    Lurker: 2
    Tayshaunfothedead: 2
    Dumars4Ever: 2
    The Low: 1

    Obviously, this doesn't in itself mean anything since it takes just one post to kill.

    but somehow it felt like a useful start to the deliberations (even if it put Darth and I at the top of a list)....

    I finally arrived in Heaven. If you think death will get you out of doing paperwork, think again, it seems St. Peter is God's #1 bureaucrat. Anyway, after filling out all the forms, I finally got my spot.

    Nice to see Mo, Roscoe and Detteam here in Heaven.

    Anyone seen Thee? I heard he was applying for a job in the Natural Disasters department.

    Hey, I just tend to run my mouth. It doesn't make me the killer! :laugh:


    Well, with Roscoe being killed, I have to admit my main suspect is gone.:doh:



    I think your assumption must be correct about the timing Prof, but the way Slippy works...:dizzy2:...who knows?

    Slippy, are you messing with us or is Roscoe really dead? The murderer usually waits until the last possible moment to act, but this time he posted before the deadline, right? And don't give me one of those pat answers about Management appreciating my inquiries and crap like that!:boxing:


    Roscoe and Motown...Please say "hi" to Linwood for me? Oh, he's not up there? :diablo: Uggh, sorry to hear that. :skull: But I can't say I'm really surprised.

    Oh, I guess you are there after all. Just late as usual. Well, that's good.

    So is Maverick there? Would you know him if you saw him? Ask Detteam to work on a Spartan win this weekend. They will need his help. I'd like to see a picture of you guys with your wings. Can you dig one up?


    Oh sorry. You are probably sensitive about the word "dig" given your recent experience.

    My question is: does the killer HAVE to make a post in the timeframe?

    :pound:

    YOUR question? didn't you write the rules???

    I've been sitting here thinking about this question, and I keep coming up with the dizzying possibility that if there are two murderers at large they may be operating on two different "frequencies" or "rhythms", each of which would still be obliged to conform to the 3 day rule (that a murderer must strike within 3 days of a hanging).

    :confused: --> :noidea: --> :smash:

    It's dizzying to me because I can't for the life of me figure out the logical parameters by which we would then be able to definitively determine a window within which the deadly post must have occurred. And if we can't do that, then I have no idea how we might use the search features to aid our investigation. And if we can't do that then we might as well just enjoy the rush that comes with whipping up a hysterical lynch mob (and don't get me wrong, that really is fun).

    Based on prof's timeframe, I looked for the possible Pistons word "Wallace" and didn't find it. I'm not coming up with any other Pistons words with A, E, L, L.

    If the killer is dropping the two non-Pistons words in a post without using the Pistons word, can the A, E, L, L clues appear anywhere in the post, or do they have to appear together in a single word?
