During Spring 2020 we decided to launch an interactive online murder mystery. Releasing a new piece of evidence every day over our social media channels, Detectives across the globe had 3 weeks to put together the pieces and find out just who was the killer in - THE SOCIAL MEDIA MURDER!
Below you will find all the pieces of the puzzle for you to solve your very own Highly Suspect Murder Mystery.

Day 1

MEGA-HUGE-ENORMOUS-EXCITING-NEWS‼️‼️

Have you ever sat at home twiddling your thumbs, but longing to stretch your little grey cells? 

Do you watch Homes Under The Hammer and instantly need to discuss whodunnit with fellow like minded sleuths?

Do you walk down the street muttering under your breath "Guilty, Guilty, Fraudster, Toe Nail Collector, Guilty, Guilty, Innocent.......No wait *look at his shoes* - GUILTY!"

But most of all, do you feel like you simply don't have enough ways to make your voice heard on the internet? To share your incredibly sound, incredibly right, incredibly justified opinions to as many people as possible?

THEN HIGHLY SUSPECT HAS THE ANSWER FOR YOU!!

This week we are launching a BRAND NEW Social Media Platform for you to connect with fellow super sleuths and delicious detectives all around the world!

We'll be revealing more about this exciting project as the week goes on, but first, we'd love to introduce you to the magnificent and not at all "Highly Suspect" team who have made this dream come alive!

Day 2

Our exciting new social media platform, connecting super sleuth and delicious detectives across the world to crack cases together, will be launching this weekend!

Everything is ready, except for one thing....

WE NEED A NAME!

All of our team have come up with some amazing suggestions, and we couldn't possibly choose between them. So instead, we're asking YOU!

Just comment below with your favourite (ignore the team if the team if they try to sway you! This will be a fair competition.) We'll be announcing the winner in 24 hours time, so you haven't got long to choose.

Check back tomorrow for the winner and more exciting details about the project.

Stay Sleuthy!

Day 3

Voting is now closed and we are THRILLED to reveal that our brand new social media platform will be called .....

CLUE-TUBE!!

Buzz Feed, our community engagement speclialist, has recorded a little thank you to all that voted.

We'll be posting another slightly more serious update soon, so please check back in the next few hours to help us solve a niggling mystery....

Sadly, the reveal of CLUE-TUBE as the name for our upcoming exciting Social Media Platform has been somewhat marred by a series of threatening tweets sent to our Marketing Manager and Project Lead Sue Shalmedia.

Some of the offending tweets have been attached below. (Reader Discretion is advised.)

Although CLUE-TUBE is yet to officially launch, if any eager sleuths out there would be willing to take up the case and investigate who was behind these malicious and unwarranted threats it would be greatly appreciated.

Like and share to spread the word, and let's get the culprit caught!

Day 4

With the launch of CLUE-TUBE now only days away, the team are jumping at the opportunity to tell you more about this EXCITING and REVOLUTIONARY project, and even a few details on the first CRIMINAL we'll be using it to CATCH!

Please like and share far and wide to recruit as many super sleuths and delicious detectives as you can!

EDIT: A massive thank you to everyone yesterday for helping with our little Twitter conundrum. Your assistance was valuable and greatly appreciated. We can assure you steps will be taken to ensure such an incident does not occur again.
