Not tried No 2 yet but from the solution to No 1 "Gellert had 'discovered his defalcations'"

Sounds unpleasant...

Murder most foul !
Some of the chocs have been eaten but there's no sign of the wrappers. The box is out of the lady's reach.
The pencil is a hard lead and the paper flimsy it would most certainly have torn if she'd written on her lap.
I'm going for it being .... Fred
Don't believe him re the note.

It was murder, the box of chocolates were out of reach with no wheel marks on the sand towards the chocolates, the pencil point was hard, very sharp (unused) and in her hand, if she had poisoned herself and with only her right arm working you would assume that the poison bottle would be in her hand or at least her hand would be empty if she dropped the bottle, the chocolate wrappers were missing. I am leaning towards Fred as he reported seeing her writing a note on flimsy paper, a 225 pencil and on her knee would not be possible without ripping the paper.

Suspicion falls on Fred and Harry, both benefit in the will, both had motive, plus opportunity. It could be one of them, or they conspired together. Fred fetched the chocolates, and his story about the note doesn't add up, but Harry found the body, so he had the opportunity to arrange the scene before summoning the police.

Sand, on Brighton beach? Inconceivable. I would arrest the writer of this document for having made the whole thing up.

You lot are TOO good! And yes, Liam, the writer has obviously never been to Brighton!
