    • Professor Plum: (his confession) Yes, I killed him. He came here so full of conceit, not looking for the truth. He would lie, cheat and threaten for a lurid headline. He would destroy honourable lives for the sake of one moment's titillation for his readers. He upset us all- and he blackmailed me. It is true that a project I worked on had been used without adequate safeguards. Regrettable, but... Stringer was going to ruin my reputation. So I decided to poison his wine. I knew he'd be back for the bottle. What was it? Oh, a cocktail of insecticides. It seemed somehow... appropriate.
