In life, we must understand that the truth with always come out despite the time of the matter. In “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” by Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson look into the murder of Julia Stoner, whose stepfather is Dr. Grimesby Roylott of Stoke Moran. The Roylott’s were once of very wealthy family, but after gambling with money, all things were lost. Grimesby killed his butler but married Mrs. Stoner, who had two daughters of the name Helen and Julia. Mrs. Stoner soon died, leaving Dr. Roylott in custody of the two girls.
Although Sherlock Holmes admitted to killing Dr. Roylott, he was not guilty. Dr. Roylott was sitting in the chair where the snake always lands on.

All of these reasons prove why Sherlock Holmes was not guilty of killing Dr. Grimesby Roylott.

Furthermore, she wrongly placed her trust in the wrong people, Friar Lawrence and the Nurse. Her death was a cry for help because she felt lonely, abandoned, and depressed. Her actions were mainly based upon distress of love. Those two people were never there for her and Juliet takes responsibility for her decisions thereafter. Friar Lawrence, Capulet, and Juliet have made unwise choices and behaviors, leaving them at fault for the losses of the houses, Capulet and Montague.

(Bradbury151) He mentions this as Will is attempting to destroy the balloon in order to get rid of the Dust Witch for the night. Instead of Will shooting the arrow out, it broke in two pieces, not achieving the result he would have expected.

Although the death of Susie Salmon breaks the Salmon family apart, it also provides them an opportunity to rebuild their love for one another and their relationships.
