I heard that Mr. McCarthy was murdered and that the police thought it was Mr. McCarthy’s son. I asked them why they think it is Mr. McCarthy’s son they answered that a girl named Patience Moran saw Mr. McCarthy’s son fighting with Mr. McCarthy I wanted to know if Mr. McCarthy was really murdered by his that is why I asked Dr. Watson for help I found out that the girl Patience Moran did saw Mr. McCarthy fighting with his son but she never saw Mr. McCarthy’s son really murdering Mr. McCarthy. She only saw the fighting and heard them yelling but she didn’t saw a murder. After collecting more evidence I found out that it wasn’t Mr. McCarthy’s son but it was Mr. Turner the best friend of Mr. McCarthy. He asked me not to tell the police that he killed Mr. McCarthy because he didn’t had much more time left to live.
