When did Barney discover his gun was missing? (The morning after the parade)
When was it first discovered under Otis’s hat? (Several days later after the 4th)
I’m so over this…….Me too…..Me three
The flaw: Otis did not stay in the cell during the day, only at night. Why didn’t Otis or someone else see the gun hanging on the hook, when the hat wasn’t there? The answer is, the gun could not have been on the hook the whole time. Where was it?
Who had motive and opportunity to take the gun?
Barney hung the gun on the hook the night of the parade. Otis put his hat over the gun. Barney locked the door to the jail before falling asleep, but Otis left to get help. He unlocked the door which made it possible for someone to come into the jail house while Barney was sleeping and Otis and his hat were gone. Barney was sleeping and the gun was hanging on the wall uncovered. Who do you think would have come in, seen the gun,took it with them, then returned it the night before it was found
1)Was it Thelma Lou and Louise? Remember Louise thought they should come up with a scheme to make Barney look like a hero. Catching a thief would qualify. That might have been their motive. They would make it look like someone stole Barney’s gun, then plant it so it looked like someone else took it. When Barney caught the would be crook, the town would think him a hero. Then when it didn’t unravel as expected, they got scared and put the gun back, or they just plain got bored.
2)Was it Jerry? He was concerned about losing his job. Remember, Murdo Girl hinted that if they didn’t bring in some more cash he might have to go home. He only had $5.00 yet he carried that big empty bank bag wherever he went. Maybe he was carrying the stolen gun around, waiting to see where he could get the best deal. (He’s on a salt restricted diet due to the excessive chip consumption. He needs $ now, not chips.) He could sell the gun on the black market and donate the proceeds to the campaign that offers him the best deal, or he could return it to Barney, no harm done.
3)Was it A I? She acted kind of funny don’t you think, when the gun was found while she was there? She was obsessed with being an informant, and wasn’t real happy about how Murdo Girl was running her campaign. She may have come in that night and when she saw the gun, took it intending to frame the Murdo Girl team, just to make it more interesting.
This is my team A I…You knocked several of us down.
Answer: It was Jerry. He’s writing his confession now
PS..We’re not allowed to fire him while the case is in litigation
