The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
This storyboard does not have a description.
He is - THERE
Have I not told you at least thirty-six times that it is useless to conceal things from Hercule Poirot?
I who speak to you - I know the murderer of Mr Ackroyd is in this room now. It is to the murderer I speak.Tomorrow the truth goes to Inspector Raglan.
Raymond points out that Ralph Paton is still the prime suspect, then Poirot tells the guests (who are the residents at Fernley Park) that he knows about all the evidence and all the events that occurred on the night of the murder. Poirot then points to the doorway, where Ralph is standing
... after the crime was discovered while Parker was telephoning for the police. In fact-Dr Sheppard!
Poirot says that he had been suspicious of Dr. Shepard from the beginning, so Dr.Shepard confesses to visiting Ralph on the night of the murder. Poirot then explains how the doctor helped Ralph disappear.
Poirot receives a telegram that gives him the last clue, and he tells everyone that he now knows for sure who the murderer is.
No one confesses to the murder, so everyone heads home. Poirot tells Dr. Sheppard to stay behind, and he asks the doctor what he thought of the evening. Poirot tells Dr. Sheppard how he found out who the murderer was.
Poirot explains why the murderer must be Dr Sheppard, but the doctor replies by telling him that he has nothing to gain.
5 a.m: Dr Sheppard completes his manuscript, writing about how he pities Roger Ackroyd, the reasons behind his choice of weapon, how he is proud of himself for misleading the readers, and more.
