2- The poison

Directly south of the mansion on the path there is a poison salesman (you can also find him in the Seer's Village pub). Talk to him and ask him about the poison he sold to the mansion and ask him who he sold it to. After you have gotten all the info from him, go question all of the Sinclair family members about why they needed the poison. After you talk to all of the servants and family about the poison, investigate the following areas:

  • Outside - water fountain, family crest, drain, compost heap, and beehive.
  • Upstairs - spider webs.

After investigating everything, you will find out one of the sites didn't have poison used on it and that was a certain person's alibi. Talk to the guard and tell him you know who it was, after telling him why he will tell you he needs more evidence.

Note: The murderer is different for each person who does the quest.

3- Fingerprints

Take 7 fly-paper traps with you and go into the kitchen, search the barrel and take the flour. Use flour on all of the silver evidence. Next use the fly-paper traps on the floured items to get the fingerprints. Use some flour on the silver dagger to get the murderer's fingerprints and compare all of the fingerprints to the murderer's fingerprints. After finding a match, talk to the guard again and tell him about it.

4- Thread

The guard will still tell you that you need more evidence, so talk to him again and show him the thread you found on the window. It is the same colour as the random person's pants, and the guard will praise you for helping them solve the mystery!
