Do you know how I usually kill the other challengers? In direct combat! Votes are a coward's game!

...But I'll side with the others for now and say ##Vote: Fantanoice. While the lack of testimony isn't suspicious in itself, witness testimonies find her in the midst of the action.

Tentatively voting for him since he had the opportunity to enter the pantry multiple times and lied in his testimony, but my answer isn't final until we have more information about the cause of death. Can't hurt to apply some pressure and make the guy talk, though.

I see, I SEE! Yep, it's all clear to me now. After giving it some thought, I don't think SGoW/Gangsta Mario is the culprit. I know he's the culprit. Prepare to be dazzled by my genius!

Our little killer entered Cafe Uriel sooner than everyone but the Freaky Five, who saw him enter the Kitchen area before anyone else did. He lied in his testimony when he said that it was already steamed up when he got there; our pal Ernest Fine wasn't there yet. In the Pantry, he used a role power to coat the floor with a layer of a spider web-like material. When he returned to the Kitchen, Ernest had begun to steam the place up and prevent people from recognizing each other. Gangsta grabbed a lighter and possibly a knife too, then returned to the main area of the Cafe.

At some point, our unfortunate victim warped onto the map and ended up caught in the sticky stuff not far from the Pantry entrance. Their mask also fell off and landed beside them in the web. Gangsta, either with sheer luck or a role ability to sense that someone was caught in his web, returned to the Kitchen. Keep in mind that he never gave a precise reason for returning to the Kitchen. If he didn't grab a knife before, he grabbed one now and headed to the Pantry. Around the same time, Beedle was entering the Kitchen to get supplies for grilled cheese. When he went to grab a knife, two were already missing - one taken by Ernest for his potato sculpture, and the other by Gangsta Mario.

Gangsta stabbed the trapped victim in the back, piercing his heart. Then, using the lighter, he ignited the web. I had trouble reconciling the stab wound with the burns on the front of the victim's body if either injury could be fatal, but the answer is obvious now. The burns weren't intended as a killing blow; they occurred when the culprit tried to get rid of evidence by burning the web. However, they didn't anticipate that the parts of the web underneath the victim's body and mask wouldn't burn.

After leaving the knife stuck in the victim's back, Gangsta dashed back to the Kitchen. This is the more hurried movement that Ernest heard behind himself. At the same time, Beedle started walking toward the Pantry to get supplies. The victim, still stuck to the floor while bleeding out and starting to burn, cast a spell with his final breaths. His role card states that he was capable of pyrokinesis, after all. He caused a small explosion behind himself in a defiant attempt to ward off his killer, unaware that they had already fled. Instead, he knocked back Beedle, who was in the doorway.

The explosion sent Beedle flying backward and gave him light burn wounds matching the burns on the victim's back. Gangsta lied about hearing two people hit the floor, because the victim was already stuck to the floor. The blast also deformed the handle of the knife and cauterized the stab wound, but the victim had already bled out significantly. Meanwhile, Ernest heard the explosion and began to flee. He also heard the sound of blazing flames, which matches up with the fire having already been set. Beedle shakes off his daze and leaves too, as does Gangsta Mario. Later on, Mario tokes up to give himself a convincing alibi for grabbing the lighter.



This hypothesis accounts for all of the evidence we've found. It explains all of the wounds on the victim's body, all of the eyewitness accounts of the scene barring the killer's lies, and the other evidence found at the crime scene. The killing blow doesn't matter because all of the wounds were inflicted by only two people: the killer and the victim himself. With all of that in mind, I'm keeping my earlier vote as it is.

##Vote: SGoW/Gangsta Mario

Feel free to praise me now. Any objections can be taken up with my secretary.

Multiple lies/inconsistencies in the testimony, and Varrick's summary makes a lot of sense

WOW!

OOHHH! How rude of this Gangster Mario to interrupt my sandwich making enterprise! It figures that a criminal wouldn't understand simple, peaceful trading...
