Room 1: The Usual Suspects
Leonberg, February 27th 2015
It’s a stormy evening, junior chief Markus Gertring is coming back to his office at 9pm. His colleague Martin Schmitd was about to go home when he encountered him. According to his testimony, Mr Gertring looked broken, but there wasn’t any conversation besides a short greeting between them. Was he the last person to have seen Mr. Gertring alive?
The next day his father, CEO of the company, finds his son’s dead body. Aside from a cut at his fingertip, the FBI didn’t find any signs of external force. Forensics declares death through suffocation.
The case remains unsolved to this day, but they found a locked safe in his office. They were hoping to find clues within, but there was a problem. According to his wife (Caroline Gertring) the victim was obsessed with riddles, scavenger hunts and puzzles.
After the safe’s thorough analysis it was clear, that the safe could not be opened without endangering its content.
The safe is also wired with the office door. The only way to open it, is to lock the door from the outside and enter the right keycode within 60 minutes, otherwise its content will be forever lost.
