Dr. Quicksolve

Dr. J. L. Quicksolve got a call saying that gunshots were heard at John and Plumber’s convenient store. Dr. Quicksolve rushed over. He got out of his car, walked between two police cars, pulled the door open, and entered. When he came in, he instantly noticed Plumber, lying on the floor dead. John was standing behind the counter, nervously playing with his mustache. Dr. Quicksolve approached him and asked what happened. John replied,

“When I walked in, I saw Plumber, on the floor, dead. Before I had a chance to do anything, the shooter darted out from behind the door and escaped.”

“Why didn’t you do call the police?” Dr. Quicksolve asked. “Because I had so much to do,” John responded.
“Does anyone else work here?” Dr. Quicksolve asked.”

“Yeah, our assistant manager, but she didn’t come in today. You can ask her questions tomorrow if she’s here”.
“Yeah, ask her why you killed your partner!” Dr. Quicksolve immediately took him in.
Why did Dr.J.L. Quicksolve suspect John?

10 guesses to Dr. Quicksolve

  • Ryver

    What happened to Max Gaetanno? Anyways…
    is because that since that door had to be pulled to open, it would be in conflict with the part about the “shooter darting from behind the door”

  • Dude

    You are correct, Ryver.

    When Dr. Quicksolve entered, he pulled the door open, but John said that when he came in, the shooter was hiding behind the door. The door doesn’t open that way.

    You are today’s winner.

    And don’t worry, Max Gaetanno is alive and well and will be making another appearance soon.

  • Martha Karsjens

    I’m sorry, but if you see a person dead on the floor you address the issue. You don’t do your “work” and then call the cops later.

  • Rose Fossa

    When Dr. Quicksolve entered, he pulled the door open, but John said that when he came in, the shooter was hiding behind the door. The door doesn’t open that way.

  • Isaiah

    Because John was the only one at the store and he didn’t call the cops because HE HAD TO MUCH TO DO

  • Prachi jain

    If nobody was there except john and plumber then who had called to quicksolve who knows that only john and plumber was there and nobody else .Obviously john had called to quicksolve then how can he say tbat I had so much to do

  • Eddie

    If nobody was around today except John, then obviously the only possible way for Quicksolve to know about the crime was if John had alerted the police. But since he didn’t call the police, there is no possible way for the police to get notified about the crime, unless somebody heard the gunshots.

  • In the part when Dr. j.l. quicksolve says ” Why didn’t you call the police ” and John says ” I had work to do” its crazy because when you see a dead person on the ground you freak out then call the police immediately .

  • He says the shooter darted out the door as soon as he walked in wouldn’t he have been seen the shooter leave.
