Unusual Evidence

In addition to normal evidence, there are two types of special evidence that a detective may uncover - surprise witnesses and perjuries. Both are placed on suspect sheets facedown, like normal evidence, and both may be revealed when placed if the player wishes to do so.

A surprise witness serves as a -5 (very innocent) piece of evidence.

Perjury tokens are more unusual. For each perjury token on a suspect, one alibi or surprise witness on that suspect has its value changed from -5 (very innocent) to +5 (very guilty), as the witness is caught in a damaging lie. Alibis, surprise witnesses, and perjuries are explained in more depth on page 34.
