- Use the screwdriver with the locket to get an open locket.
- Look at the open locket.

- Now there should be enough evidence to bust the guilty person, but before going after the murderer, go to the major's room upstairs.
- Search the bed to get an elephant gun.
- Use the handcuffs icon to indicate the guilty person. In case you didn't figure it out, Dingle did it.
- You will be automatically brought face-to-face with him. If you swapped the bullets earlier, he tries to kill you, but will fire blanks, and tries to escape immediately.
