Yeah, you gotta be careful about medicine. BTW, maybe don't be so quick to pull out your gun on possible witnesses. You're lucky if that poor janitor doesn't report you.

> Order of Events, for puzzle-solving posterity.
9 and 10 might be interchangeable, but my gut says that if the "fleeing" card can't be fit in, that means you can't have interrupted their delivery, which would have been likely had you already taken your pills, rather than the scenario where your drugged-up paranoid butt connected the nonexistent dots after they were already gone. This conjecture doesn't serve any purpose, aside from some closure on the posterity level. Then again, I don't think this one will have an official report.

Lots of shootings in the city don't really catch my intention, But this one caught my eye-We even got the guy in for questioning, Claims he's done nothing wrong-that's what they all say-Dirty criminals-Anyway i want you to take a look at the case in case i make any mistakes.

•There are 4 Outcomes

•You need at least 8 frames.

•If you think you have the correct sequence, Ask for the case file open and submit the number of frames you think is correct.(e.g-"")

Frames collected so far:
START:The front of Humpback's Racket Italian Restaurant, 'The Crooked neck'.

1.Blue eye member calling on the payphone.
2.Cat Veteran calling on the phone for police.
3.Humpback Manager calling on the phone to his boss.
4.Cat Veteran going back to sleep.
5.Blue eye member heading to the bathroom
6.Blue eye mob skid up to the restaurant, Armed and ready.
7.Humpback's gang are gunned down by the mob.
8.Cat Veteran trying to get some sleep.
9.Blue eye member reveals his pistol, Shooting the henchmen and the fleeing manager.
10.Blue eye member and the Humpback mob calmly eat dinner.
11.Cat Veteran takes shots at the Restaurant window.
14.Blue eye member flees the Restaurant.
15.Cat Veteran arms himself with a automatic scoped rifle.
16.Blue eye member waits in the bathroom.
17.Blue eye member takes gun from holster.

END:Both Humpbacks Henchmen and Manager lay dead, Ridden with bullets and pasta sauce.

"Oh, and if you need any help just ask-I've read this top to bottom."
No. 942787 ID: b1b4f3

Uh... I think we need more information here.
Is there any eyewitness testimony? Are there any recordings available? Who called the police? Who was arrested? (I'm guessing the blue cat member that fled is who was arrested) What did they claim happened?

Of note is that there's only 3 frames for the cat veteran that don't involve him getting his rifle. Unless we get another frame for him, that means he was involved somehow.

I can see three possibilities immediately: 1, the blue cat member did it. 2, the van full of blue cats did it. 3, the cat veteran did it. Not sure what the fourth would be, some combination of the others?
No. 942791 ID: b1b4f3

Do we know what caliber bullets were used? That one should be relatively easy to find.
No. 942793 ID: ce39da

We didn't get to see the initial investigation this time, so can you tell us what evidence led to each of those frames?

We should also know if any guns were found either on the scene or the witnesses.

You're sure the glass was broken outward?

The veteran called the police, right? What did he say happened?

What's the individual Blue Eyes member's side of the story? Go down and actually talk to him, and keep that gun holstered, geez! (You were prescribed stress medication for a reason, I imagine.) Give him a chance to actually get a word in edgewise.
No. 942801 ID: b1b4f3

OH, more questions:
Can we get the phone records for the manager's phone, the payphone, and the veteran cat's phone? Or at least the calls relevant to that time period.

I took my time flipping through the file, mostly only for the interesting parts of course.

"Well, According to a little interrogation from one of the kind officers, He buttered out something about a phone-call-bla-bla-bla-Humpback guy-blah-bleh,-You can never trust those guys,Killers at the core, No recordings..yada yada..That old guy was the one who called the police during the gunfire he said, He was really calm about it though, Dead strange, Who got arrested?-Well it was that damn Blue eye snake, Course we held him in custody for murder and fleeing-And the funny thing is he's pretending he didn't do anything-AS he's covered in blood!,Hah!, Like i believe that nonsense."

"Oh yeah, some brass shells, No name of the tag or anything sadly over-wise i'd be eating lunch by now,They were quite small bullets though, Enough to break a sheet of glass."

"Well lucky me eh?, The investigators go out and collect the evidence for me while i just piece the puzzles together-Sometimes-Never got into trouble for it. Well these are just theory's, But i'm sure that at-I feel like i'm missing a frame though. Guns?,Yeah-Old guy owns one of them-Army automatic's, And we caught that punk with a pistol sticking in his pocket, Also the victim's carried guns, Pistols like the punk's. Oh yeah, that's how we got him. It couldn't be no one else in that room but him. And i don't feel like leaving, I'm cozy right here".

Hobb's takes a minute to flip through to the phone log
"Yeah, But i'm sure you'll not find anything important directly from here. There's the old man's call-Standard police call, And a irrelevant phone-call during work-hours, Don'Humpback'Pullano himself talking to the manager. Nothing important of course~".
No. 942816 ID: b1b4f3

SHELLS from small caliber bullets, sure, but what about the bullets themselves? Small caliber bullets would remain in the body or could be recovered easily from bullet holes in the scenery. Also, what kind of wounds did the victims have? Different caliber bullets leave different wounds-- large caliber bullets leave disproportionally larger wounds due to the physics involved.
This line of questioning will confirm what kind of gun was used to kill the victims. The shells being present in the restaurant only proves there were guns fired in the restaurant, not that those guns were used to kill the victims. It's still possible the veteran cat killed them, and they were simply returning fire.
How many of the guns had been fired, and how many rounds?

Gunfire during the veteran's call is actually very suspicious. In either scenario where the veteran was NOT involved, the gunfight would be very short, meaning the veteran would call after all the noise was over. This implies the veteran shot at the restaurant-- either having ducked down to call the police while the mobsters returned fire, or used his own gun during the call. ...or he faked the gunshots via a recording to make the police think the shooting happened at a different time? It's not solid proof of wrongdoing, but it's suspicious.

Phone records confirm panel 3 happened, then... When did the shooting happen? Do we have any evidence of the timeframe other than the police call?
No. 942818 ID: b1b4f3

Were any bullet casings found outside the restaurant?
No. 942839 ID: 864e49

So Four(4) possible scenarios:

Blue eyes eating with manager is a set up for a drive by.
Or something like that.

Blue Eyes does it himself.

Veteran can't sleep and looses shit over something and opens fire on restaurant.
Probably not this one as how would Blue Eyes not get hit.

Veteran goes PTSD after shots fired and shoots out window after Humpback already dead (maybe trying to kill Blue Eyes as he escapes?).

We need more info! At what times did the three phone calls happen, how many casings where there, where were the casings found, what relation did the Blue Eyes thug have with the manager and/or Humpback thug?
No. 942841 ID: 864e49

Keep in mind that the veteran is a VETERAN and his police call would probably not be the same as a civilian.

Also do the frames in the top and bottom rows happen concurrently?
Like does frame A1 happen at the same time as frame B1?
No. 942845 ID: ce39da

We need to know which of those guns were fired, and how many times.

Wait, considering that this was a shootout and not an up-close knife fight or something, wouldn't the fact that he was covered in blood mean he was right next to the victims and therefore LESS suspicious? We need some deets on the autopsies regarding how far away the shooter was.
No. 942847 ID: b1b4f3

There should have also been a gunshot residue test done on the suspect's hands.

For that matter, gunshot residue on the victims at the table would indicate whether or not they were shot at close range. No residue means the suspect is innocent. I doubt they could have shot back at that range without hitting the suspect.

"Shells, Let's see-Nope-Nope-Ah!, There's a small note about uh-uhhhhhhh, Those shells. Some fired bullet shells on the window, And some near the bathroom floor. Also according to the autopsy, The yellow one must've got it first, Right in his face and chest, Must've took him a few seconds to take in whats happening in his last seconds, The manager must've been running for the counter, Could be from the window-Or when he came back from the toilet, A direct bullet to the brain instantly killing him.The shots According the Veterans call, He heard one shot, Followed by four shots and the sound of broken glass, it wasn't enough time to start a full on gun fight-I guess you could say it happened so fast."
"Well, The first phone-call was around the work-hour, The shooting was after-hours. All of the frames take place during the night."

"Bullet casings start and end at the front of the bathroom door, to the window."
"A1 and B1 are from different suspects, Like the veteran and the blue eyed."

"Pasta sauce, Blood sauce and uh-Brain goo, Yeah.i dunno."
No. 943043 ID: b1b4f3

Ahh that's some good evidence. Someone INSIDE the restaurant did the killing, and they either fled to the bathroom while shooting or came out of the bathroom shooting. That puts the cat veteran in the clear, I think-- he must've grabbed his rifle but not used it.
Hmm. Any chance there was another person there that escaped alive? Like another humpback member? Otherwise the evidence strongly points towards the blue eye member.

I'm really curious as to why the blue eye guy thought telling the police about a phone call was important. ...maybe he's claiming self-defense because they were talking about killing him?

Apparently, He thinks that one of the Victims that caused all of this-That Humpback member shot the other one directly in the face, and then attempted to turn the gun on him

"Let's just wrap this up, I got better things to do."
All 3 Frames are collected

12-Humpback Member takes gun from holster.
13-Humpback member hears the bathroom door open
18-Humpback member shoots his friend in the face, fatally injuring him.

You have the full complete set of Frames to begin reconstructing the sequence.
No. 943164 ID: b1b4f3

Hey wait a minute, weren't we told this guy was covered in blood?
I don't see any bloodstains on him.
No. 943165 ID: ce39da

Honestly, this is just a big mess of shots to sort through from a puzzle-solving standpoint. What I am sure of is that the Blue-Eyes member shot at least one person - the Beluga Guy he's accusing. If he was in the bathroom and came out just as the initial crime happened, there's a good case for self-defense.

But then, there's the matter of the manager... He didn't mention him, did he? Ask if he knows where the manager got off to. If he doesn't correct you on the manager's status among the living, then he's definitely only guilty of manslaughter rather than mass homicide.

Also, in the future, maybe the whole "order of events" format is a bit too messy and cumbersome? You simply explaining the details of a case to us and letting us draw our own conclusions would more than suffice.
No. 943172 ID: b1b4f3

...wait a minute, there's a missing piece to the puzzle. What happened to the chef? You can see them clearly in the background of panel 3. Did they leave before the incident, in which case everyone else was hanging around after hours?

OH, also, ask why he was in the bathroom. Was he waiting for something?
His story matches the evidence, honestly. No reason for him to flee into the bathroom during a gunfight, so the casings were from him firing while leaving the bathroom. It doesn't outright confirm his motive or even clear him of killing the first guy, BUT his story also matches the reports of gunfire. One shot point blank, then four from an ensuing gunfight.

It would be easily possible to confirm his story based on gunshot residue and bullet trajectories but I'm guessing we don't have that technology available(can't even match bullets or shell casings to guns...).

I never said you should give up! (Seriously, it feels like you only hear 1 out of every 3 things we say...) It's your case, you gotta close it. Again, ask the guy about the manager; there's a chance he doesn't know the guy is dead, and if so, that proves his innocence in his and the first victims' deaths. It's pretty clear that he at least shot the thug in self-defense, though, but hey, he won't get the chair for that!

I only suggested that the mechanical photo-wall of events puzzle system seems to overcomplicate what we're trying to do, which is solve crimes and catch criminals. Maybe the reason you asked for our help is that the way you organize your thoughts is a mess? Step back, discard the theories, and stick to the facts, and then we can start really focusing on the 'who' instead of finicky temporal puzzles.

Sorry if that hurt to hear, since I have reasonable confidence that you started this quest specifically to present these "Order of Events" puzzles, but we really are invested in the mysteries themselves.

Hey wait what no. The cops are gonna send him to the chair and I'm like 90% sure the guy's innocent. Hell even 50% sure would be reasonable doubt.
Let me just say I disagree with this. You misunderstand what the overall puzzle appears to be- first, we gather facts and develop theories, then we test those theories by trying to piece together the panels. It was never JUST about the panels.

In this case, I believe the order is:

(top row)
(bottom row)
5, 18, 13, (missing panel here of blue eye killing the manager), 14

We don't have a motive for the humpbacks doing an internal hit though.
