* NiceJobFixingItVillain: The crime would never have been traced back to the killer if they weren't so impatient and wrote an incriminating letter to their accomplice when Mrs. Inglethorp's death came later than planned. Had they simply waited for the inevitable, they might have gotten away with it all.
