## Teacher Alibis

Each of the suspects were each interview from Mrs.Chou; the notes from the interview are below. We included the visuals we saw such as facial expressions and items near the suspects, the interactions they stated they had with Mr.Parish, and we also included the alibis.

## WHO DUNN IT??

Ms. Kelly Lecceardone:

Why she could have done it: Ms. L was at lunch with Ms. Dixon at the same time and dropped Ms. Dixon at 4:00 pm. Ms. L then left school to go home. In her interrogation, Ms. L had a can of bitter almonds which contains arsenic and cyanide, too. There were also gummy bears in the crime scene. In her interview, she also mentioned

Why she could not have done it: Ms. L was with Gino at home raking leaves and chasing squirrels.

Mr. Andy Sayles:

Why he could have done it: In the crime scene, there were the letter "HS", which can stand for History Sayles (original thought). He also had a death cap mushroom (amanita phalloides) on his desk, which is a possible poison that could have killed Mr. Parish.

Why he could not have done it: On the math packet, we calculated the distance between Mr. Sayles' second home to the Lovett School. It takes 45 minutes to get from his second home in Serenbe to the Lovett School. In order to poison Mr. Parish with cyanide at 4:00 pm, which is the poison that killed Mr. Parish, Mr. Sayles would have to drive 20 miles in 15 minutes, which is not possible.

Mr. John Rice

Why he could have done it: One thing that caught our attention was how Mr. Rice acted during his interrogation. He looked quite suspicious as he stuttered and put a lot of effort in to his answers as if he was trying to "remember" something. Mr. Rice's fingerprint is also a match to Print B fingerprint.

## Math Summary

We calculated that the murder occurred at 4:30 pm on November 19th.

Cyanide takes 30 minutes to kill. That means the poison had to be administrated at 4:00 pm on November 19th.

Arsenic takes 3 hours to kill. That means the poison had to be administrated at 1:30 pm on November 19th.

Amanita Phalloides takes 120 hours to kill. That means the poison had to be administrated at 4:30pm at November 14th.

The map calculations dictates that Mr. Sayles and Mr. Rice could not have committed the crime.

Mr. Sayles could not have gotten back in time because he would have to drive 20 miles in 15 minutes to get there at 4:00 pm. It takes 45 minutes to get from his house in Serenbe to Lovett.

Mr. Rice could not have gotten back in time because he would have to drive 20 miles in 10 minutes. It takes 30 minutes to get from the Mall of Georgia to Lovett.

Therefore, they could not have poisoned Mr. Parish in time.
