You have found out that the piano key is missing. Your detective, Lancy, has been questioning the store manager.
Manager: " I never knew that someone would steal a piano key. I think my customer, Aries, she has always wanted to have the piano and she is always inquiring about the piano but she complains about the price. She loved the shiny blue C on the keyboard. Also, my friend, Marlene, has always collected piano keys, especially if the key is colorful. My assistant, Zack, loves the piano key and is jealous about it. He has always been mad at me for not giving it to him. The key is easy to rip off."
Next you question the customer.
Aries: " I have always wanted to have the piano, but I never have had enough money to buy it. And the key was so lovely that I knew I would buy it when I had enough money. But now the key is lost."
You look for clues from these suspects. They are very careful, so watch out!
Marlene: " I loved the key. If I had the money to buy it, I would have. It could have been my first piano key collection. The key leads to a secret tunnel behind the door. I have always wondered what is in there. There might be gold!"
Zack says: "I played the piano all the time. The manager says that the key leads to a tunnel which leads to more piano keys. Only the manager can go inside. If I had the key, I could have had all of the colorful and shiny keys for my friends and my family."
Next, the robber of the piano key dressed up like a piano key, got on a motorcycle, and tried to grab the keys from an old woman's hand. The old woman smacked and kicked him, and pulled the "C" off the costume.
You find out that the missing key is dark red. When you examine all the piano keys, the letter is black and it has a key mark.
Zack is filling out a form. He is using a dark red marker. Another time, you remember, Zack was coloring a panther dark red instead of black.
Marlene is looking over all her keys. One of the keys fit the key print on the "C." The key is black and dark red.
Aries is found looking at pianos that have the middle "C" on them. She has found out that every piano has a different color on each key. But you are not sure if this is accurate because she is color blind.
Zack: "I hate Mr. Cid. He is mad at me because he thinks that I stole the key. I do not understand. That key is worth millions of dollars! I have always wanted to have violins, tubas, guitars, and instruments for the stores and Mr. Cid always refused."
Marlene: "My mom just bought me a new baby grand piano. She helped me take off the keys. I must admit that the keys were lovely and wonderful. I really want to go down into the tunnel. I stay up all night thinking about my keys."
Aries: "I am sure that the pianos are filled with dark brown colors. Why was the blue one so special. I wanted to take a look at it. I am very sad that I cannot tell the light from dark colors that are on the piano keys."
Would colors be a clue to the suspect who stole the Piano Key?
