According to the police officer, the murder was perfectly planned and the suspect did not leave any evidences behind. The officers stated that the weapon the murder used had to be around the house and it must be sharp and a heavy object. The police officer, Jack Noonan said finding the weapons might help them to catch the suspect easily. After a long time of search the doctor said “her husband had been killed by a blow to the head …. back of his head was broken into pieces.”
At the end it is said “the Writ and Warrant to justify the Arrest were read, whereby upon the Return it was found, that they had returned a Rescous by the Party that was killed, which the Court told Watson was a great Evidence against him.” Also it is said that because there was no provocation, the law states that it implies the charge to be murder. Nathaniel Russell was found guilty and John Watson was found not
The author does not say this outright, but it is implied through implicit and explicit evidence. The author reveals information in a way that makes the reader slowly begin to fear and suspect Holmes, which builds suspense. Explicitly, the author states facts about Holmes’s personality. For example, as a child, Holmes is described as “small, odd, and exceptionally bright.” At this point early in the book, we are not yet led to suspect the true nature of Holmes, but we know that there is something wrong with him.
A hotel owner had reported about a man who had locked himself in his room for five days after the murder had taken place. The police went to find this man, and he claimed his name was Frederick Durrant, which later they had discovered this was false (Blanco, J.I.). His name was essentially Peter Alphon. 22nd August Alphon claimed to be with his mother, and on the 23rd August he said he was in a hotel in Maida Vale called the ‘Vienna’ (James Hanratty, no date).

As Montresor and Holmes seek their specific forms of justice, they both demonstrate cleverness. Montresor’s sharp intellect is apparent when he tells his servants “not to stir from the house” but then tells them that he will not return until the morning as he wants to “insure their immediate disappearance” (Poe 2) and eliminate witnesses. Similarly, Holmes reveals his cleverness when he sees the bell ropes and figures out that they are “Dummy bell ropes” (Doyle 5) which go through “ventilators which do not ventilate” (Doyle 9) into Dr. Grimesby Roylott’s room, thus an obvious clue.
Dr. Watson is an assistant to Sherlock Holmes because Sherlock told Watson to bring a gun to the cellar of the bank just in case. The other thing is that Watson can’t spot clues just as fast like Sherlock. Most of the time Watson does not really know what is going on sometimes; Sherlock usually tells him most of the time. Is when he asks Sherlock about Mr. Wilson if it was a mystery and told Sherlock how you spotted

Sometimes, examining the case in a different view, thinking as a murder, will decrease the time to solve the puzzle. Depending too much on the clues, which getting from people on the train, makes him going to the loop that all people cannot be a murder, but he sometimes thinks that everyone can be a murder. On the half of this novel, Poirot thinks like he can find the murder by asking people and focuses on what they react to a trap that he builds. However, Holmes does not use that way, he usually thinks as a murder because he knows that a murder can tell him a nice story without any errors in it. So he can distinguish what answer is truth or lying.
Watson made a plan with Helen that they would stay in a nearby hotel called the “Crown Inn”, and, after Dr. Roylott fell asleep, have Helen signal the two gentlemen with a light in her window. The two sleuths would sneak into the house and wait quietly for the whistle around 3 a.m. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson waited patiently in the corner of the room for the whistle to sound. Eventually, the time came around, and Sherlock Holmes saw a faint light through the ventilator and some movement in Dr. Roylott’s room. He also smelled burning oil and heated metal.
All characters are accused and redeemed of guilt but the murderer is still elusive. Much to the shock of the readers of detective fiction of that time, it turns out that the murderer is the Watson figure, and the narrator, the one person on whose first-person account the reader 's’ entire access to all events depends -- Dr. Sheppard. In a novel that reiterates the significance of confession to unearth the truth, Christie throws the veracity of all confessions contained therein in danger by depicting how easily the readers can be taken in by
Holmes and Watson’s antagonist in the novel is the logic aspect of the case. For example, Holmes says “Of course, if...we are dealing with forces outside the ordinary laws of Nature, there is an end to our investigation. But we are bound to exhaust all other hypotheses before falling back to this one.” Also, in the novel, the logical solution and evidence is explained in further detail, for Holmes gives “a sketch of the course of events from memory” in the resolution. There are many subplots in the novel, such as Seldon’s escape, Sir Henry and Mrs. Stapleton, and Sir Charles Baskerville and Laura Lyons, which answered many questions about the case and evidence against Stapleton.
This case, which Sherlock remarks, ‘looked at the first glance so simple yet [presents] such difficulties’, reveals the very nature of the Sherlock Holmes crime: a diversion of the expected, or, more simply, a mystery. It is no coincidence that St. Clair’s secrets are both aided and revealed by his presence in London. In Kent he is one man and in London another, for London by its multifaceted and complex nature allows for the disappearance, recreation, and re-emergence of man. Had St. Clair’s wife not entered the city, he would not have been discovered in the act of recreation, and Mrs St.
