The Case of the Missing Manatee

Hello Gumshoe, 


I need your help. Butterball the manatee is missing.


Some background on Butterball: He’s an Amazonian manatee and beloved by all our guests. The aquarium superintendent mentioned he received a ransom note so we know Butterball is being cared for. 


I’ve done some initial investigating and have narrowed it down to seven suspects, all of whom are connected to the aquarium. We know these seven previously met and stealing from the aquarium came up in conversation, and luckily we have a recording of this encounter. 


There are other clues all over the academy, and when you find one, you’ll scan the QR code to receive the clue on your phone.


Use the clues to decide which of the seven suspects is the culprit and return here to me and I’ll check your work. The first 25 people with the correct answer will be receiving a small token of my appreciation.
