Puzzle #130: A fun Sherlock mystery! Good luck!
Ray Whitcombe is found dead in his office at his desk. The police have narrowed the suspects down to three people: Mrs Barbara Whitcombe, Ray’s wife; Mr Jason McCubbins, Ray’s business partner; and Mr Harold Nichols, Ray’s best friend. All three visited Mr Whitcombe on the day of his murder, but all three provide the police with stories of explanation as to the reason for their visit. Police found Mr Whitcombe with his wrist watch still on his right arm, a torn up picture of his wife laying on the floor beside the trash can and an ink pen in his right hand. On the desk, the police found a nameplate, a telephone that was off the hook, and a personal calendar turned to the July 5th page with 7B91011 written on it. After examining this evidence, the police knew their suspect. Who was it?
