Case Log: (Day 1)

The players meet with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson at 221 B, Baker Street

Alec is given control of Wiggins on day 1 and therefore takes command of the investigation by visiting Scotland Yard to speak with the patrolman who was first at the scene of the crime. Phil decides Henry Ellis should join Wiggins at Scotland Yard so that he can put his interviewing skills to work.

Meanwhile, Randy sends H.R. Murray to visit Somerset House to look for documents important to the case.

Finally, Alec sends Mycroft Holmes to visit Edward Hall, a lawyer at the Old Bailey’s Tribunal to search for information on any trials or legal proceedings that involve this case.

At the end of day one the investigators don’t feel any closer to solving the crime but they are enthusiastic about the prospects of day 2, which includes a visit to the scene of the crime.
