 Combination Lock

This item was placed in the high school time capsule by Charlie.

It was used for his high school locker.

On the time capsule worksheet, Charlie says one of his biggest goals in high school was to find a new password other than his birthday.

  • His birthday is March 22.
  • This is the password for the lock, as well as the password for the locked flash drive files.

This flash drive has a folder labeled "reference".

Letter from Private Investigator

Michelle found a flash drive and sent it to us without trying to crack the password herself?

Newspaper Clipping 1

This article reports that Charlie's gravestone was vandalized. Specifically, the "Beloved Husband".

  • This had to have been done by either Sarah or Neeta.

Newspaper Clipping 2

Wow. They arrested Gavin for his little stunt of dosing Charlie's drink with diazepam at the reunion.

  • Holy shit! Up to 50 years for all the stuff he could be charged for!

Pawn Shop Record

This shows that someone else bought Charlie's ring after he pawned it.

  • Why would a person buy someone else's high school ring...?

Why is everyone so somber?

  • Especially Aura. She looks like she's hiding something...
  • How about the obsession just oozing out of Robyn's pores as she locks her gaze onto Charlie.

Vandalism Incident Report

This is the report that was filed when Charlie's car was vandalized.

This clarifies that what was written was actually:

  • "WILL C U SOON" - one word written each one of the 4 doors.

There is no mention of the dent, so that must have happened prior to the spray painting.

There were two other incidents of similar vandalism.

  • "DREAMS LAST SO LONG"
  • "EVEN AFTER UR GONE"

Vandalism Photo

This depicts the vandalism on Charlie's car from a few years back noted in Michelle's letter.

  • What does "Will C" mean?
  • Michelle stated that the vandalisms around town are few and far between.
  • Could this and the vandalism of Charlie's headstone have been done by the same person?
