The Moon Summit Mystery
Ami recounts the final items she has found for us:
- Toby's last notebook pages
- Conrad's little journal
- Another page of Emma's journal
She says she was able to log in to Toby's email account.
There is Morse code on the back.
Once deciphered, the messages read:
- "Resetting trap after dinner?"
- "Probably, why?"
- "Take Toby"
- "Nah u wanna come tho?"
- "I'm staying here tonight"
Wow, it took the magazine over 2 months to get back to him...
The last email from Toby's account to the magazine obviously was not written by him. The tone is all wrong and it is not formal like the others.
It was sent at 10:12 pm the night Toby died. But he left camp at 9:00 pm.
- Emma accompanied Rusty on resetting the trap.
- Lillian was off taking a photo of golden hour.
- Nigel has already been eliminated as a suspect.
- So that only leaves the old fart to be the one to write the email, be seen on the trail cams, and murder Toby.
Field Journal Page
Emma reveals that Toby planned to sell the animal as soon as it was found.
It sounds as if she were the one who wrote the suspicious email from Toby's account, but she was with Rusty at the time.
- So unless she somehow wrote it when Toby caught her in his tent and scheduled it to send later...
This holds a microfiber cloth with a slip of paper wrapped up inside.
The slip of paper reads:
- "Share: AutoFocus724"
This actually pulls apart to reveal a concealed USB stick...
When plugged in, all it contains is 2 very out-of-focus "washed" photos.
According to Toby's notebook page, he digitally distorted them.
- I wonder if/how we can un-distort them.
- They should show what Conrad buried by the catacombs.
Certain words are coded in this journal. It is a simple substitution cipher which can be cracked by common sense deduction of certain words and patterns and going from there.
