In this case, although the victim has supposedly been seen at various times and places during a two week period, an autopsy reveals that his last meal had been eaten two weeks ago. So how could people have seen him.The Canvas Dagger: At 4:35 on the afternoon of October third Grant Melville, a portrait painter, fell from the fourth floor studio of the Melville house on East Tenth street and was instantly killed. The verdict was accident. There was one dissenting voice, however, for shortly after four oclock on that same afternoon, Sarah Casement was standing at a window directly across the street from the Melville house in Greenwich Village when she thought she saw the shadow of another man standing alongside Melville in his studio. But when she told the police her story, they didnt believe it--until later events brought Inspector McKee of Homicide into the case.
