The Trail Thus Far[edit]

Buford's initial findings of a mysterious recording and three photographs ([1], [2], [3]) finally led him down the path to Bob's shooting, but he was too late to prevent the crime. It seems the mastermind behind this heinous plot has an ego and has left behind more clues as to his motive, location, and identity.

  1. Fortunately, we’re not going in this blind. As it turns out, the mastermind has an ego, and thus he left us a clue. Unfortunately, I do not have that clue, as it was slipped onto Buford’s bulletin board and I don’t have the keys to the security center to get it. But for those who think they can break into his office, they should search for the picture that’s named after its file type. It may lead to other clues regarding his identity, his location, and his motive. Though, that’s only assuming his ego matches his stealth enough to distribute more. - Clue 1
