The three men have pretty different looks (Taichi has a PornStache, Tatsuji slicks his hair back, Yuzo looks quite younger than the other two), and the only ''actual'' shared physical trait they have are their eyes and their brows. Which ''coincidentally'' re the only part of the culprit's face that the witnesses could see. Therefore in practice they don't look '''that''' alike, but there's still no easy way to see which triplet was to blame.
