10 bodies were found an island outside of Devon's coast. The ten casualties
were identified as Anthony Marston, Mrs. Ethel Rogers, Edward Macarthur, Mr.
Thomas Rogers, Emily Brent, Justice Wargrave, Dr. Armstrong, William Blore, Philip
Lombard and Vera Claythorne. This article will tell who did it, why they did it, when they
did it, and how they did it. This is just a suspicion. The murderer is Justice Wargrave.
He murdered every guest there except for Lombard and Claythorne. Plus, he faked his
own death, making the alove guests think he’s dead and not the murderer. First with
Anthony Marston. When they were talking about the gramophone, Wargrave had put
the potassium cyanide in his drink, causing him to collapse and die. Next, Mrs. Rogers.
When Mr. Rogers came in to give her some brandy, Wargrave put poison into Ethel’s
drink while the gramophone situation. The next one is Macarthur. Wargrave made sure
he wasn’t caught leaving and not letting Macarthur hear him. Mr. Rogers was the next
casualty. He was chopping wood for the fire and Wargrave came up behind him and
chopped him in the neck region. The next murder was Miss Emily Brent. Wargrave
slipped more poison into her coffee. Emily was in the dining room unconscious and
syringed her with cyanide. He told Vera to get her in the dining room, finding her blue
faced. Here’s where it gets tricky. He actually plans something with Dr. Armstrong to
fake his death with a fake shot to the head. He set a piece of seaweed in Vera’s
bedroom to make everyone distracted to her and setup his death. Plus, no one heard
the gunshot. I believe that Wargrave killed Dr. Armstrong. Blore hears someone walking
about in or near the house. Blore tries to get Armstrong, but is not in his room. They
think Armstrong went outside. Wargrave is talking to Armstrong outside and betrays
him. He pushes the doctor off the cliff to his death. Blore, Lombard, and Vera are left.
They go outside to investigate and stay out there for a period of time. Blore then
decides to get food from the house. Wargrave has a marble rock and kills him throwing
it from above.Vera and Lombard find Blore dead with the rock beside. Vera and
Lombard go to the cliff and see Armstrong in the water dead. Vera secretly
pickpockets Lombards revolver from him. She thinks hes the killer and shoots him.
Wargrave see this from his room, and prepares the noose. Vera hangs herself and
Wargrave has had everyone on the island killed but him. He then goes to his bed and
shoots himself, leaving every guest on the island dead. This is my suspicion only.
These are my opinions and this is my most realistic story of the scene. Who knows,
maybe no one will ever know.
